It also could be they can hear them coming! Sound travels far.
I know my dogs recognize the sound of different cars.
Remember, their senses are way more acute than ours!
I tend to think animals are more "in tune with things"
that way than humans. I think we have the ability, we just lost it,
We dont have to rely on it the way an animal would.
Therefore we dont hone it to be trustworthy enough to react to situations.
Animals need all advantages they can get to survive in the wild
and dont have a bias toward it the first place!
Domesticated dogs were not always that way.
Just my 2 cents here. Thanks, interesting thread! Pets rule!
Every creature has intuition or at least some built in genetic memory
it will need to survive and continue propagating the species.
Alot of people are psychic, why wouldnt some pets be?
P.S. Anyone watching Miss America? Wow! Pant, pant!
They could domesticate me anytime! Sorry to stray off topic......
