INT. WHEREVER - DAY

The dog ambles by, looks around, sees something.

DOG'S POV

(Describe what the dog sees.)

BACK TO SCENE

Obviously not interested, the dog keeps walking.



This is the simplified version, of course. If you use a POV, or INSERT, or CLOSE UP you HAVE TO come BACK TO SCENE. Otherwise, you give no indication that we ever left the POV shot.
