* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had this with Silkie trying to choose between Starfire and Killer Moth. The indecision was so stressful that he exploded.

This is seldom played straight anymore (''AirBud'', a Disney dog picture, is a notable exception). Mainly it is played for laughs, for example where the dog does not pick the Universe's ChewToy, or a human is reduced to animalistic base functions to make a decision. Sometimes it is Subverted.

* In one of the ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' shorts, Nyarko thinks her pet [[CthulhuMythos Shantak]] is getting too attached to Mahiro, but insists that she'd always choose her real owner. Mahiro suggests doing this test and despite Nyarko's attempts to call, Shantak immediately jumps into Mahiro's arms. Nyarko flips out and, one RelaxOVision sequence later, she's snuggling a badly beaten-up Shantak and cooing "Oh, I ''knew'' you'd pick Mommy!" while a terrified Mahiro calls her a monster.

* A variant in ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur''. Forrest, the pet collector, takes an interest in Arlo's nameless pet human, and quickly says, "I name him, I keep him!" Cue the two of them taking turns calling out {{Stock Animal Name}}s at the human until he finally responds when Arlo says "Spot".

Despite the name of the trope, it does not have to involve a dog, nor does it need to be in a Disney movie. Dogs just seem to be most often used, with horses and children running a close second. It is part of the trope that if it is a person, not an animal, making the choice they are somehow decision impaired (a child for instance) or is somehow making the decision not using higher brain functions (a HormoneAddledTeenager for instance). {{Disney}} is invoked mainly because they perpetuated the trope in numerous Live-action movies and TV shows, but also because the name Disney is often synonymous with [[DisneyDeath toning down content for younger viewers]], so this is Disney's version of a Dog Fight.

* In ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'', there's a story about Santa's Little Helper becoming the spokes-dog for Krustyburger, complete with a sleazy manager who lures him away from Bart with various treats. Ultimately, it backfires when the burger he bribes SLH with makes the dog throw up, effectively ruining the ad campaign.

* A Disney ''Cat'' Fight happens on an episode of ''GoofTroop'', when Pete tricks Goofy into giving up Waffles so he can use him in commercials. Any time Goofy or Max tries to get the cat back, Pete quickly lures him to his side with steak and lobster, which ultimately foils his plan when Waffles's appetite is spoiled and he's no longer able to eat the food in the commercials.

* Subverted ''and'' played Straight in DetectiveConan in ''The Beckoning Calico Cat'' - where the animal in question is a rare male calico cat. One of the hopeful (non-)owners used catnip to attract the cat, who subsequently was all over him. Later played straight when the cat recognized his real owner by the sound of the foot steps through a closed door.
