Can dogs see ghosts?

Can dog’s see ghosts?  This topic interests me because I have always wondered if my dogs could see spirits.  When I bought my first house, after only two weeks, I sensed I had a spirt of an older man.  He would visit from time to time but it never bothered me nor did my dogs ever give me any indication they could see him.  I even thought I might be overreacting considering my dogs were very good watch dogs always letting me know if I should be concerned about someone or something at the door or around the outside perimeter of the house.  I lived in that house for 9 years always sensing when the older man would come to visit but Bear, Bella, and Lady never seemed to be phased by him.  Maybe they say him, maybe they didn’t???  

So, after doing some research, the only answer I could find is that we just really don’t know.  Your pet’s so-called sixth sense may simply be the result of his keen hearing, exceptional nose, and a dog’s eye view on the world that allows him to sense small movements that escape our attention. The difference though is that dogs are more open to trusting what they feel and acting on those feelings accordingly, while most people’s minds analyze what’s going on and deny the possibility that auroras or spirits exist. A dog’s senses are keener, and different, than ours: His eyes detect more delicate movements; his sense of smell is 1,000 to 10,000 times more sensitive than a human’s. He can hear much higher frequencies, and at four times the distance of a human with normal hearing.  Dogs also have an amazing ability to detect tiny differences between frequencies. They can hear “the difference between the musical note C and another note that differs by one-eighth of the distance between that C note and C sharp.” That puts tone-deaf humans to shame.

At only a year and a half old, Jake and Maggie have become very good watch dogs.  They are very sensitive to every little smell and movement outside.  Time will tell if they sense if we have any ghosties in the house or not!  Dogs can’t speak to us but chances are that if your pet is standing in the corner barking at nothing, you might have a spirit or entity hanging around.  

If you or your pet has ever sensed any spirits, I would love to hear the story.  Write in and let me know!
