My dog is being really loving lately, i mean he's a clingy puppy, but hes being extra clingy to me?! When im sat on the laptop he worms his way inbetween me and the laptop so he can lay on my belly/legs so i can cuddle him, then he falls to sleep on my chest....and just a minute ago, he was having a good old sniff of my belly and boobs lmao...
So i was just wondering.....is he sensing a little bubba? Or is he sucking up because he wants a new bone?! LOL
YES animals can sense pregnany before we can, they can sense our hormones, a lot of people i know have all sed there animals are more cuddly and wanting attention more, as they can sense a change. look it up on line hun xx
Actually one of me friends thought her dog behaved differently towards her when she was pregnant - really loving and clingy, so you might be on to something. Animals have very finely tuned senses. However, it's not really that reliable as it may just be that they want extra treats, so wait for the HPT before celebrating.
I hope not. Otherwise, my kitty deliberately tried to sabotage me. After dtd last night, while I was ummm "keeping the soup in the bowl", my kitty jumped on my belly. Of course, I shot up and my efforts were compromised.
They absolutely can! I had a MC in march. I felt pregnant. I have 8 pit bulls and a boxer/catahoula mix. all males. My blue brindle,Dante, is my baby boy. He was my first dog and naturally I'm closer to him so became overly protective of me. My other dogs would do VERY strange things like bring me pieces of dog food expecting me to eat it,nudging my belly,following me everywhere....lol....imagine having 9 shadows.
Thanks for your replies, i'm having to type this with one hand as they other is cuddling Eike who is again lying on my belly....I havent been giving him any extra treats so dont think hes beeing a creep lol. I also forgot to mention the following around..A few times i've had to tell him to go lie down as hes been under my feet!! He literally wont leave me alone! He even follows me to the toilet....And when hes not lying on me hes by my feet or in the middle of the room staring at me...Which is kind f creepy lol Im loving the attention though, normally its my OH that hes all cuddly with x
Dogs sense of smell is so strong they can sense changes to the skin, your secretions, etc. particularly hunting and sport dogs - there has been proof that pregnant owners have experienced their dogs behaving strangely, particularly male dogs, however, they can also behave this way when you are ovulating, particularly if they haven't been neutered.
