My dog (German Shepherd) seems to have some odd hearing. He can be on the couch in the living room (back of the house), laying down, with the TV on and the air conditioner running and yet will spring up at a moment’s notice and go running to the dinig room bay window (separate room front of the house that looks out on the street) and start barking wildly.
Two minutes later someone will come walking past walking their dog. (He only barks at other dogs.) From the direction they are coming, they are JUST coming around the corner (we’re at the end of a street) when he shoots off the couch and can’t even be SEEN until they’re by our driveway yet he knows they’re coming. And he has NEVER been wrong.
So the question is do dogs have some kind of supersonic hearing or something? Or is my dog just an oddball?
