I adore the show mythbusters, and was thrilled when they called me out of the blue last year.  they were looking for a mounted cat for a segment about how to fool guard dogs, and heard from a local taxidermist that i had one.  they picked up the cat the next day, and went about turning it into a robot so that it would move its head and legs.  thay had to cut it up and put it back together, so it looks a bit rough, but i think it's a fun sequence.  i don't have cable, so i never saw the segment.  if anyone else did, i'd be curious to hear about it!

That is really neat!  I love that show.  I haven't seen that segment yet, but I'll be on the look out for sure.

I saw the show and the cat really didn't distract the guard dogs. The thing that worked the best was food.

I haven't seen this episode, but I sure would like to.  Are these professionally trained guard dogs, or guarding breeds that are pets?  Food refusal is one of the first things taught to a dog who must work alone - it's done with a meatball on the ground with a wire and a car battery......It is unpleasant, but it can save their lives.

I didnt see the entire portion of that segment. They always bounce back and forth between myths and i missed what kinda of dogs were used. I just know when they did the recap They went through the list of things they tried on the dogs and food was the only thing that really got any kind of response from the dogs.
