This has been a question many a dog owner has sought answers to this very question. While a single click from your TV is no more likely to frighten your dog than your car being parked outside your home, there are still many benefits to leaving on your TV. One of the easiest is to have your dog dole out the food, watch TV, lie down and relax. This is a great thing to do. Another benefit of leaving on your TV is that the television may keep more of its content on if your dog was to leave the TV alone. This is a great time to give your dog a chance to “go away” for a few hours, maybe even allow it to go in a special dog bed. If your dog has an issue that may prevent him, or her, from going anywhere in the house, leaving a TV on could still alleviate some of the pressure on the situation, and allow your dog to rest.
So, as always, don’t leave the TV on if you have a sick or injured dog! Leave the TV alone if your dog has a special need, or a need to interact with something else that his or her body is not strong enough to handle. Just make sure you don’t use the TV to keep the door shut if you’d like to keep the dog out of a room in the first place, and don’t leave the TV on when it is in its original position!
So my dog leaves the TV on, and I think he’s been getting anxious. Should I change that habit?
If the animal can’t sleep, the TV will be able to keep its content on for hours as the animal rests for hours in bed. If the animal is getting anxious, however, you might consider replacing the television with a different outlet. A blanket blanket can be a wonderful solution if the animal’s blanket has stopped providing adequate blanket warmth.
Also, your dog may be sensitive to the sound from the TV. With all the activity in the house the dog may become used to the loud sound of the TV and be uncomfortable if left on. I’ve heard horror stories where the dog becomes sick or even “colds” on his/her own as a result of the TV being left on overnight.
Some people use their TV as a pet door to allow another person access to their dog. Just do a little research before putting your pet off the TV. While your dog may not want to share an outlet with you, do not give your dog the right
