I think dogs can see or sense things that humans can not and I don't just mean hearing things. We had a great dog where I could tell what he was
barking at (looking out the window) by the tone/frequency of the bark. From my parents, sister, mailman, UPS driver, neighbors, dogs, cats, squirels,
etc, they all had a little different feel/sound. He was about 75lbs and a vicious hunter but a big baby around friendly people, great temperment.
Sometimes he would run and jump up on the couch and look out the windows and start barking and growling like a rabid dog wanting to kill someone, his
entire back hackles up (much moreso than normal warning barking) and almost foaming. We can see everything for about 75 yards in front of the house
and on either side, so everything is in clear view, but nothing was there. When I got close to look out the window he would push his body in front of
mine, putting himself between me and the window, it seemed like he was protecting me by keeping me away from the window. I couldn't see anything and
there was NOTHING I could do to get him to come away from the window, even yelling or pulling him away, he would snap (as a warning, not touching me)
at me telling me he was staying there. I was probably 13-16 when these things would happen and it happened a couple times a year. After about 3-5
mins he would settle down but you could tell he had lots of anxiety after wards and would pace around the house looking out the doors, windows, and
usually stay close to me or my parents afterwards. Something really upset him and we never saw anything when he got that way. Even his eyes looked
different when he was acting up and afterwards, like he was worried.
I've seen him kill groundhogs many times and he was attacked by a neighbors dog a couple times and he never got as angry as when there was "nothing"
When something like that happens, I usually lock the door because it just leaves a really unsettled feeling b/c I can't figure out what could possibly
set him off like that.
On another note, if he heard a hot air balloon (the noise from the flame torch), even from miles away, he'd run away like being chased by death itself
and hide between the back of a couch and the wall, all wedged in and stuck sometimes.
So who knows when it comes to animals.?
