One of my dogs taught himself to spot end credit music on movies and TV shows.
I am not sure how he does it. If you let the end credit music play on a show, he'll jump down from the chair and want out, or a treat, or play time.
He knows the program's over and you have a minute.
I don't know what he uses as a discriminator, or if he's just memorized the music for the shows we watch. But if you're watching a DVD and let the
end credits roll, he's off the chair in a blink. For some programs, he can spot it in the first few phrases. Others, where the start and end credit
music is similar, he seems to take a second longer. I thought he was watching for the end credits for a while but it's the music. He can, for
example, distinguish between the start and end credit music for Stargate SG1 and Atlantis in no more than three bars. And the in-program music never
And he bows up to the MGM lion almost every time.
It's also odd what movie dogs my dogs respond to. For a lot of them, it's like nothing's going on. But sometimes, you'll hear a background bark
that's not part of the on-scene action, and all my dogs will start chuffing and yapping, and if you wait a bit and replay that, they'll react again.
But a few minutes later, another dog will bark about the same, nothing. Obviously, something upsetting's being conveyed by one bark and not by the
other, although I can't really tell much difference.
