Pets and the Paranormal by Chad Stambaugh

I originally wrote this article several months ago for United Paranormal International, I was talking to a fellow member at the time,  M. Birdsong about her and other dogs that seem to really have some kind of extra sensory thing going on especially when it comes to sensing ghost and spirits.  Now, I know that dogs especially are in tuned to a lot of things that we as humans are not. So to satisfy my curiosity I began to do some research.

I know that all of them know when a bad storm is coming because they all act kind of weird.
I have read articles that talk about other people’s pets letting them know when they are fixing to have an epileptic fit. I have read where people’s pets have alerted them right before an earthquake. So are these dogs just super dogs or do they possess some sort of natural ability to do this. I know you can train dogs to find drugs and bombs. I have even read about a Beagle that can find termites in your walls.
I believe that there is something to this. I believe that pets in general have the innate ability to see and hear and sense things we cannot.  As a Paranormal Investigator I use tools such as an emf detectors, K-II meters, IR cameras, Digital recorders and Digital cameras to search and communicate with spirits and ghost. I think that dogs in particular have these type of things built in. The only thing that I am having trouble with is why all dogs can’t find ghost or spirits.  I think that if they could then we would all have one or two on our paranormal investigation teams. So if not all of them can do it, then what makes the ones that supposedly can do it, do it.
There have been some studies done concerning this theory.  I have read some of them. The one thing in the studies that is pretty much the same is that the dogs that were tested were always given a reward for correctly sensing the electromagnetic current or field. So is it a matter of the dogs getting a reward that triggered this built in emf detector or was it something else. These studies never really gave a concise answer to if a dog can find ghost or not. I do know that If I hold some type of electronic device that gives off a pretty good emf field up to my dog she barks at it.  Do they bark at it because it’s giving off a spike or is it because it some sort of strange object you putting in their face.
I would love to be able to train my dog and cats on how to find spirits and ghost. of course I’d have to wait till we got a new puppy, cause my sara is too old now to teach her anything and you can’t train a cat to do anything. But training them to find ghost and spirits would seem almost impossible to me. It would not be because I think they are not capable of learning it, but I think it would be because of what we are asking them to find. As a Paranormal Investigator I know that not every emf spike, K-II hit, orb on a camera, shadow on a video, or sound on a digital recorder is a ghost or spirit, and if I know this than how can I train the dog to find something that may not be there.
What about Birds? Two of my members on my team,(a married couple) have cockatiels, and at their old apartment and at their new house, they always seem to have paranormal experiences, although that’s a whole nother story for another time. When an energy presence is present or near, they go ballistic; however, unless they have their equipment with them 24/7, they can’t always say that a ghost is the cause of the chaos. Could we train birds to detect spirits then?
I think that whatever kind of pet you may own, except for of course cats because we all know that nobody owns a cat, they just grace us with their presence. You know when your pet is sick; you know when it is hungry, or even sad. Why do you know these things? I think it is because you get an emotional bond with them and they speak to you even though they do not talk.
As I was saying earlier I do think that pets and animals have the ability to sense things that we as humans cannot. I do believe that they may really have the ability to show us where a spirit or ghost may be, but because the paranormal field is so questionable I do not have the proof that they can. I hope that one day the information that we all seek as Paranormal Investigators will answer this question.  I’d really like to hear from our readers of what you guys and gals think about using animals in paranormal field?
