On a recent road trip I listened to an interesting program called Dogs that Know. I found it so fascinating that I dug around for more information as soon as I got home.
Now, you may be wondering if you’ve heard of this somewhere before. Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist, and former Fellow of Cambridge University investigated this phenomena in the mid-90s. He even wrote a book titled, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home. While many dog owners, trainers and other experts have witnessed this behavior, some scientists remain unconvinced. This research project aims to resolve this question.
You can check out their theories and even take part in their study if you wish. The Dogs That Know website is here.
Does your dog seem to know when you're coming home? Do other people in your house tell you they knew you were on the way home based on how your dog was acting? Do you have a story of unexplainable communication between you & your dog? If so, please share your story and photo with us for publication in our upcoming newsletters.
