Your dog can sense that you’re pregnant, even before you can. More than just an old wive's tale!

Their incredible sense of smell means they can smell the hormonal changes your body experiences in the very early stages of pregnancy.

Birth

Even more impressive, dogs can sense when you’re close to giving birth.

When you’re due, your pooch will feel the need to protect you and will keep as close to you as possible.

Fear

Fear results in the release of adrenaline and pheromones which dogs can detect with their incredible sense of smell.

When you’re sad

Dog owner or not, we’ve probably all experienced this once. Your dog just appears to know when you’re feeling down and comes to gently place his head on your lap as if to comfort you. Dogs can read your emotions even without you saying or doing anything and when you’re feeling the blues they will do everything in their power to try to make you feel better!

Changes in the weather

Apart from their remarkable noses, dogs have very finely tuned hearing and can sense a storm long before it arrives in your area. If your dog seems agitated during bad weather, it could well be because a storm is on the way.

When you’re nearly home

Ever wondered why your dog is already at the window when you arrive outside your house? Before he could possibly have seen you? The explanation to this supernatural behaviour all comes down to his powerful sniffer again. Your fur baby can smell you approaching and can hear your footsteps or car long before you think he can.
