My golden retriever definitely doesn't. :tape:

Usually there's a big noise before a big earthquake, I can almost always hear them coming. ;) :lol:

maybe you live in a not seismic area....

He just felt the vibrations before the humans. Cute dog.

This is quite old if people know many German Shepard Dogs served in many Wars and Natural Disasters (sensing life signs from rubble). The simple explanation is Dogs by nature have better sound frequencies compared to Human limit (20 Hz to 20 KHz). Some other species have this advantage too.

:eek:

I live in sicily that is a seismic area too....

Totally agree!...or... THIS... (I think that's what they're saying these days :scratch:) Human 5 senses have limiting sensory range. :topic: Just because I can't 'see' radio waves don't mean they don't exist, human eyes perceive only the visible portion of the EM spectrum. There are birds/insects that 'see' in the ultraviolet. :backontopic: The doggie is a cutie :hearts: It's like he said wtf, I'm outta here!

I've always heard that dogs can sense this stuff and start acting funnier than normal. Cats can sense them, too, but they just start looting and rioting instead because they are evil :)

Does anybody know the decibel range that canines can hear? Perhaps seismic activity produces noises at lower frequencies that are perceptible to the doggies? :hearts:

That's... unexplainable. But I agree some animals can sense things that humans can't.

Well, if you have little time/patience...

Humans can't hear Seismic Waves because of range reasons. There is a catch here. There are many kinds of Seismic waves such as 'P', 'S' waves etc. In few Earthquakes (due to P waves), humans could hear them in form as a strange sound/noise. But not always. Note that Earthquake waves travel at very high speeds on km/sec scale, and its frequency mostly is < 20 Hz. That's why Humans can't hear them. I hope this helps on why Dogs react/bark/sense/etc.
