Why is 'när den ser katter' accepted....that would be 'The dog gets angry when IT sees cats'

Differences between languages. Pets are usually referred as "him/her" in English, where as it's probably more common to use "it" in Swedish, I would guess. I don't know for sure how it is in Swedish, but it varies a lot by language. For example in my native language (Finnish) it would simply be wrong to refer to a dog as "he".

That would work, if the English sentence said it, but it says he so the translation has to match.

So you mean I can call my dog by hon in Swedish?
