    VIctoria, I think this is a great idea and i really really hope it itakes off and works for you, you certainly have my vote as all my 4 dogs watch tv anyway.,

    While writing I would like to thank you so sincerely for all the work you have put in for LENNOX, i did think that doing this publicity for your Dog Tv you might have found a way to mention him and get him into the spot light, it might have been a good idea.

    Regards,

    My dog doesn't watch tv, & she doesn't get upset when I leave the house. She's a Rat Terrier & I read one time that sight hunting dogs don't have central vision, but see things differently, around the outside edges of the eye. I can point to the tv when there's dog activity & barking & she just doesn't see it...she'll look out the door or window that's open. She is happy when I leave & goes to her bed or on the sofa, curls up to take a nap & watches me go out the door, because she is fearful of going in the car & is making sure I'm not going to take her. I think that is because of the type of vision she has because she always would stay away from a window & get as far down on the floor that she could & shake in fear.
    I tried doggles for her & put her in the kennel in the car & she did better, but I rarely take her in the car now unless I have to...she still doesn't want to get in. Just saying car will make her alert & go in the other direction
