Can dogs predict when people die?FamilyPet
Many people believe that dogs can predict when people die. Dogs have a sensitivity towards human emotions and behaviors, especially when those behaviors are different from what they are used to. For example, a dog will be able to sense if something is wrong if their owner is acting in a different manner than normal.
Dogs also have heightened senses of smell, and are able to pick up on many things that humans are not able to. It might be the case that dogs are able to smell organs shutting down, or illness spreading in a body as opposed to have a psychic ability to sense when a person is dying.
Dogs have also been known to be able to sense illnesses like cancer and predict epileptic seizures. It’s thought that their ability to do so is part due to their sensitivity to behavioral changes and part due to their excellent sense of smell.
