Historian maintains an incident of Greece in the year 373 B.C. when dogs sensed the earthquake & started fleeing the city of Helike. Later that a major tsunami gulped the whole city. This gave rise to a new theory that can dog really sense this apocalypse. Some scientist says that dogs feet could are very sensitive and could detect the crumbling of the rock way better than human, while others say that their hearing abilities make them aware of coming disaster. Reports also have shown that dog owners often notice dogs whining or barking (showing distress) for no reason before the calamity strikes.
Talking about bigger snout, another feature of dog include their ability to hear. According to research, it is a fact that dog could hear sounds of frequency ranging from 64 hertz to 65,000 hertz which is better as compared to human which ranges from 20 hertz to 20,000 hertz. These hearing capabilities let dogs hear storm from a very far distance and prepare for the doom.

Reports have shown their abnormal behavior and waking up suddenly when they hear some unheard voices.

5. They See Things
Those adorable, color-blind eyes (which is just a myth) are powerful than you could ever imagine in spotting things from parallel or 4th dimension. This trait of sharp eyes has been used by humans for thousands of years for hunting. Nowadays, they are also being used for hunting ghosts. But, can a dog really see a ghost? Sometimes in the middle of nowhere, dogs seem to stick their eyes on absolutely nothing. They seem to be seeing things we can’t. In a book called Tails of the Afterlife by Peggy Schmidt, she mentioned a story of a woman named Del Johnson who was having several dogs. After her death, she was said to be coming back to meet her pets. An unnatural behavior was shown by dogs in that scenario as all of them were sitting staring at a single wall like she was there.
