Banyen's Description: 

This remarkable book by renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake is now in a new, fully updated and revised edition.

Dogs that know when their owners are returning home at unexpected times, cats that hide when it’s time to go to the vet, horses that find their way home over unfamiliar terrain, pets that predict that their owners are about to have an epileptic fit—these examples of animal behavior convinced Sheldrake that animals possess forms of perceptiveness that science cannot yet explain. After years of research and thousands of case studies, Sheldrake offers his unique findings in Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, a groundbreaking analysis of the psychic abilities of animals. He shows that the very animals that are closest to us have much to teach us about biology, nature, and consciousness.

In this book, he reaffirms anecdotal evidence shared by thousands of pet owners and proves that animals communicate telepathically. With detailed, captivating stories and Sheldrake’s thought-provoking analysis, this book will fascinate the millions of pet owners who firmly believe there is an unexplained—but strong—bond between them and their animals. His exploration shows how we and our pets are social animals linked together by invisible bonds connecting animals to each other, to their owners, and to their homes in powerful ways.

All three types of perceptiveness—telepathy, the sense of direction, and premonitions—seem better developed in nonhuman species than they are in people, but they do occur in the human realm too. Human psychic powers seem more natural, more biological, when they are seen in the light of animal behavior....

We have a great deal to learn from our companion animals. They have much to teach us about animal nature—and our own.

Among Sheldrake’s other books are Seven Experiments That Could Change the World and Morphic Resonance.

Publisher’s Description: 

Many people who have ever owned a pet will swear that their dog or cat or other animal has exhibited some kind of behavior they just can't explain. How does a dog know when its owner is returning home at an unexpected time? How do cats know when it is time to go to the vet, even before the cat carrier comes out? How do horses find their way back to the stable over completely unfamiliar terrain? And how can some pets predict that their owners are about to have an epileptic fit?

These intriguing questions about animal behavior convinced world-renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake that the very animals who are closest to us have much to teach us about biology, nature, and consciousness.

Filled with captivating stories and thought-provoking analysis, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home is a groundbreaking exploration of animal behavior that will profoundly change the way we think about animals, and ourselves. After five years of extensive research involving thousands of people who own and work with animals, Sheldrake conclusively proves what many pet owners already know -- that there is a strong connection between humans and animals that lies beyond present-day scientific understanding.
With a scientist's mind and an animal lover's compassion, Sheldrake compellingly demonstrates that we and our pets are social animals linked together by invisible bonds connecting animals to each other, to their owners, and to their homes in powerful ways. Sheldrake's provocative ideas about these social, or morphic, fields explain the uncanny behavior often observed in pets and help provide an explanation for amazing animal behavior in the wild, such as migration and homing.

Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home not only provides fascinating insight into animal, and human, behavior, but also teaches us to question the boundaries of conventional scientific thought. This remarkable book deserves a place next to the most beloved and valuable books on animals, such as When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie About Love, and The Hidden Life of Dogs.
