Some dogs seem more in tune with their surroundings than others. Before my Dad died, we adopted Buffy. As Buffy grew she became more sensitive. We noticed her looking at spaces when nothing was there. It was so strange. Can our dog see ghosts? It seemed that answer was, yes.
DOGS’ SENSES ARE SO MUCH GREATER THAN OURS
Dogs’ senses are much sharper than ours. Dogs’ vision is 20/75 while ours is 20/20 and their sense of smell is 1,000 to 10 million times more efficient than ours. Dogs can hear in a range of frequency from 67 – 45,000 Hz while we hear in a range of frequency from 64 – 23,000 Hz. With this in mind, it seems probable that if any living being could see and sense ghosts, dogs could.
Like children, dogs are open to everything around them. Although dogs are very likely able to see ghosts, some may choose to ignore them. My good friend who is a medium has the ability to tune spirits out when she needs to. It makes sense that dogs can do the same. Buffy was the only dog we’ve had that displayed behaviors that told us that she was seeing ghosts.
CAN OUR DOG SEE GHOSTS? IT’S VERY LIKELY
Being a paranormal investigator I’ve experienced so many things that I can’t explain. We use night vision cameras, infrared lights, and full spectrum cameras. The evidence we catch is hard to deny. This has cemented my belief in ghosts.
Can our dog see ghosts? It’s likely with their superior senses. My Mother who lived with me after Dad died believed in ghosts as well. The “sightings” that Buffy had amused Mom and me. Mom would say that Daddy must have walked through the room. We found out later from our medium that Buffy was seeing Mom’s mother.
BUFFY BEGINS BARKING AT THE CORNER OF DAD’S BEDROOM
Not long after we found out that Buffy was seeing my grandmother, Buffy’s behavior became really strange. We had five dogs at the time. I had three dog beds in my room, one dog slept with Mom and there was another dog bed in Dad’s room. Buffy liked to sleep in Dad’s room. Buffy would go into Dad’s room and lay down in the evening when Mom and I were watching TV. Then the barking would start. Buffy was barking at something in Dad’s room. It wasn’t a play bark or a “let me in the house” bark, it was a scary bark. I would usually go into Dad’s room and ask Buffy what was going on. She would look at me then stare at the corner and start barking again. So I set up a night vision camera and got some photos of her barking at nothing.
A few weeks later Mom and I asked our medium to come over again. We were hoping we could find out what was going on with Buffy. Through this communication, we found out that Buffy was barking at my Dad. We also found out that there was unfinished business between my Dad and Mom. Once that “business” was taken care of we ended the session. From then on Buffy didn’t bark at the corner of Dad’s room.
MANY DOGS REACT TO GHOSTS BUT THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF THEY CAN SEE GHOSTS
I’m not the only one that has experienced their dog seeing ghosts. Many other people have reported their dog watching something that wasn’t there or barking at something that the humans can’t see. The fact that dogs’ senses are so much better than ours gives them the advantage to detect things that we cannot. Empaths and mediums tell us that we all have the ability to sense ghosts but humans choose not to see them. Dogs retain that childlike innocence that leaves them open to anything that comes near. Can our dog see ghosts? I’d say the answer is yes.
