Its amazing what a dog can sense without any visual cues. I took Jake and Lucy for a long walk while my wife Joanne had gone out to do some shopping. After a little over an hour we returned and the dogs were really excited to get home which is unusual. I didn’t know that my wife had returned because she had put the car in the garage. When I let the dogs in the house they charged right in and searched for Joanne and found her right away and gave her the full body waggle.
How did they know that she was there? Did they smell her? Did they sense that she was there? Did they feel that I thought she would be home on our return?
Dogs are great at anticipating what we expect of them but they are also amazing creatures that can surprise us with their abilities.
