A man’s best friend, dogs are fascinating four-legged creatures loyal, friendly, and adorable. But all these qualities of a dog may go hiding under the dark when the strange ones begin to baffle you as an owner.
Have you ever seen your dog howling at the moon, running to and FRO for no reason, or staring into the open space? These are certain behaviors man has consistently found daunting to understand about their favorite pets. So, is it possible that these adorable creatures can see spirits?
Let us find out!
Would you say dogs can see spirits?
Although there is no scientific reason that dogs can see spirits, this rumor has been everywhere worldwide. Now, even owners have started to feel that this might be an underlying reality. Of course, the possibilities are ample given the incredible senses that dogs possess. Their unique understanding of smelling and hearing helps them detect things far better than any human being on Earth. And why may that be?
A unique way to observe color and clarity
Unlike humans, dogs can sense colors and clarity better. These canines can even see movements better than humans, even in low light conditions. Thus, if you believe in ghosts, you may be compelled to think that dogs can see at least glimpses of them.
Their spot-on sense of smell
Our canine pets possess a smell one million times stronger than our own. That is why dogs can smell many surprising things, even in our bodies. Recent research suggested that dogs can even detect cancer, diabetes, and other life-risking diseases in humans. They also can understand our mental health issues even better than most humans. Thus, their heightened sense of smell makes us feel that there could be possibilities of them smelling spirits or anything paranormal as well.
Their behavior is bizarre and eerie
Humans believe in reasons more than visuals. We often feel that if something is happening, it is for a reason. Although many dog owners have a good reason to believe that dogs may be born with this kind of unusual behavior, most of them tend to overthink and draw out facts behind it. So, when a dog stares at the space blankly, starts running for no reason, and sits near an empty chair as if sitting with an owner, it compels the owners to believe that their dogs may be able to sight something paranormal around them.
Extraordinary hearing abilities
Dogs also have extraordinary hearing abilities that can make them hear acoustic sounds a lot better than human beings. Dogs have been said to have the ability to listen four times stronger than humans. They have 15 different muscles that help them to move their ears in diverse directions. Also, their ears are designed in such a way that they can gather more available sound waves. So, they may be able to hear paranormal activities around us as well. This could also be one of the reasons why your dog’s hair stands on end sometimes.
They can even track storms
Dogs can even tell when bad weather is about to hit your area. Why this happens is yet to be discovered by researchers, but the behavior of dogs makes it entirely possible. We all know that dogs are sensitive to drops in barometric pressure that come with several life-risking storms. Thus, dogs can even hear low-frequencies at a time. So, it is highly likely that your dog can listen to paranormal activities or sense them whenever possible.
Their tail code game is strong
As if everything else wasn’t enough that dogs can even communicate via their tail. When they feel nervous, you may see a dog lower its tail. When they are happy, you will see them wiggling it away in delight. Similarly, when they are alert, aggressive, or angry, you may see their tail erect.
There have been many instances where dog owners have seen their dog’s tail erect, and they ended up barking away into nothingness. These bizarre moments are also convincing enough for the same. No doubt that dogs are incredible with all these fascinating characteristics in them. So, the next time you buy a pet dog, you know what all you can expect from them!
The bottom line
Although there is no scientific research about the same yet we have several strong reasons to believe that dogs may see spirits. Their sense of smell, sound, vision, and behavioral changes helps us catch a glimpse of such cases. If you talk to dog owners, even they may tell you that there are possibilities that dogs can see spirits, ghosts, or a dead person.
Future researchers will soon unravel the mysteries behind the same, but until then, rumor has it!
