One thought on “Dogs have only recently been able to watch TV, with the advent of HDTV…

    Somewhat false, it did not appear as a strobe light. The only difference was in the frames per second as humans only need about 20 fps to perceive a string of images as a continuous film and dogs needs about 70 fps. So no it did not appear as a strobe light but to dogs it was similar to someone very quickly moving images in front of them like flashcards. Birds such as Budgies can process a whopping 160 fps, and most birds require about 100 fps to process images as movement. It is actually recommended to put birds in rooms without a television because of the stress it can cause.

    This information was all taken from the link in this fact, which mentions nothing about how dogs process light or comes close to mentioning television appearing to dogs as a strobe light.
