A Great Read: Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home



Book cover of Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home

In one of my favorite books, biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake looks closely at several categories of often-reported, but sometimes disregarded, types of animal behavior: predicting when their owners will return home, empathy, telepathy, sense of direction, and premonitions. There's a plethora of books of psychic abilities in humans, but this is one of (if not the) first studies of this ability in animals.


Using rigorous experimental methods, he demonstrates that something indeed is going on here, something not easily described by conventional explanations. In his 300-page book, Sheldrake posits that psychic connections he calls "morphic bonds" exist among some creatures, including bees in a hive and schools of fish, and may well exist between some animals and the humans closest to them. Here's a preview of this wonderful book in case you'd like to examine it.
