Dog owners often hate commercials that make their dogs bark. There are complaints all over the Internet about and even petitions to halt commercials that include ringing doorbells that completely set their dogs off and send them barking toward the front door.
But, there’s one commercial that makes dogs go crazy, but not in a bad way. This Kentucky injury lawyer TV ad gets dogs excited to see a tiger.
Everyone Needs the Tiger
Of course, the Kaufman & Stigger Injury Lawyers commercial isn’t specifically aimed at dogs. The firm wants people who have been injured in an accident to call them so they can help them recover deserved compensation. But, that hasn’t stopped dogs in Kentucky from running to the television as soon as they hear the tiger’s growl.
Some dogs don’t even wait for the growl to make their way in front of the screen. These dogs only have to hear the voice of Attorney Cara Stigger and they know the tiger isn’t far behind. Maybe these dogs are trying to tell their owners something or perhaps they understand the importance a personal injury attorney can have in a victim’s life. More likely, they just want to play with the big kitty with the intriguing growl.
Whatever the reason is, it’s clear this law firm’s commercials are a big hit with canines. It’s possible cats are drawn to them as well, but they probably don’t want to seem inferior to dogs by running to the television whenever the commercial comes on. As you know, cats aren’t known for telegraphing exactly what they’re thinking like dogs often do.
Dogs Are Intelligent
When dogs react to commercials like the one from Kaufman & Stigger, it shows just how smart they are. Not only do they have a superior sense of smell, but their brain processes images much more quickly than a human’s brain. This means they see and process that tiger well before we do. And they like what they see (and hear).
Studies have shown that dogs can absolutely tell the difference between images of dogs and cats and of humans, so they know they’re seeing another animal on the screen. They also know it’s not a real tiger because they would not respond in the same way if that tiger were actually in the same room as them. They might attack or run, but they wouldn’t just stand there, barking and wagging their tail while a tiger took a swipe at them.
Use the Tiger
If your dog responds to the tiger commercial in the same way as many other dogs, by running to the television and barking, you can use the tiger to get your pup to come to you on command. What a great dog training strategy! Plus, if you ever need the tiger yourself, you’ll definitely remember the commercial.
No matter if your dog responds to commercials or not, it’s clear that they are smart enough to recognize images in television shows and commercials. So, you might just leave the TV on the next time you leave to give your furry friend a bit of entertainment while you’re gone.
