    Hello everyone.
    I created an account here to tell you about something that has happened to me a couple of times now and wanted to hear your thoughts on this. Something that has been happening quite often at my house and it involves both me and my dog. I’ll try to provide as much detail as i can.

    I’ve been living in this house for over 17 years now, and for over 17 years, nothing weird has happened, until recently. I have a dog, his name is Casper and he is 12-13 years old. Super friendly, kind and loves everyone, never had and incident with him.

    My house was built in a very windy zone, whenever we have guests at our house, they sometimes get scared of how windy it can get and how strong you feel it blowing into our house. But since we live there for over 17 years, we grew used to it. Even the dog has gotten used to it... to be honest, he never really cared or got scared by it.

    But recently his behaviour has changed, and whenever we face strong winds at our house, our dog seems to get scared and stressed, which i don’t think it’s odd since he’s old now. My dad has already passed away, so it’s only me, my mom and my dog living there now, and he has only shown this behaviour after my dad’s passing.

    One windy night, only me and the dog were awake, and whenever he gets stressed, he comes to either me or my mom to find shelter, and since she was asleep, the only option left was to come to me.. but that didn’t happen. I thought he was already asleep in my room (he sleeps with me since he was just a puppy, so he’s used to it and most times he goes to bed by himself). I went to my room to check if he was there, but he wasn’t. So i went around the house to look for him, and turns out he was at the kitchen, in front of the stove. Such an odd place to be, considering that i never saw him doing that, and whenever he looked for shelter, he liked to “hide” underneath us, like if we were seated, he would lay down under the chair, and in this case, he was just out there in the open, layed down in front of the stove but with a terrified look in his eyes.

    I saw him there, and tried to get him to my room so he could sleep, but he wasn’t listening to me, odd aswell since he would obey any command we would give him, but for some reason he wasn’t obeying my orders. I slowly got closer to him to try and pick him up, but he started to growl, so i just left the kitchen and went to sleep. Next day he was normal again.

    Probably 2 days after that, we faced strong winds again, and once again, the dog instead of coming to me, went to the kitchen and layed on the exact same spot. Gave him orders to follow me, didn’t work ; tried to lure him with dog treats, didn’t work aswell. So i tried to pick him up and take him to my room, this time he didn’t growl, so i thought it was ok to pick him up, but the instant I placed my hand below him to pick him, he attacked me. He never did that, nor has he ever attacked anyone before, like I said, he is super friendly and kind, so it was to my surprise that he attacked me. It feels like he is feeling someone’s presence there, and it makes him feel either safe or very stressed. One thing I know for sure is that dogs are very sensitive to everything, and that includes feeling someone’s presence even if we don’t feel it, and that’s probably the cause of his “mood swings” and weird behaviour

    I never really cared about it to be honest, but since that, i’ve always felt that something odd was happening at that house. I was never scared to go anywhere in that house, but for some reason I recently felt “scared” whenever I went to the kitchen at night, in a way that I think someone is there and I feel that something might be there, and that explains why my dog has recently shown that type of behaviour. And there’s some areas in that house that I don’t feel “safe” anymore, like for example, in the living room, which is one room away from the kitchen... whenever I go to those places at night, I always feel like i’m being watched.

    I’ve always been very sensitive whenever it comes to feeling someone’s presence. I told some stories about my mom that whenever we went to my aunt’s house, I felt that something or someone was in that house and it shouldn’t be there (specifically in her bedroom). And my mom told me that my father had that “gift” aswell, to feel someone’s presence, wether that presence meant a good thing or a bad thing, he felt it, and told me that my aunt has actually been having trouble sleeping, and has been waking up for no reason in the middle of the night, which never happened to her because she’s a heavy sleeper.

    I feel there’s something there... and hearing stories about my family and knowing that some of us tend to be more sensitive than usual whenever it comes to feeling outside energy, it just gives me more assurance that something is indeed at that house. But I still wanted to hear your thoughts on this. And if you think that someone is indeed there, how should I get rid of him? Even if he doesn’t mean any harm towards me, his presence is “overwhelming”, so is for the best to get him out

    Welcome to the forum Duck.The saying"Its an ill wind" I feel has a lot of truth to it.I've noticed heightened paranormal activity when a wind picks up.I originally thought it was the paranormal causing the wind,I'm not sure,but I'm glad you brought this up.The dogs pick things up before us I feel too.

    Hi DDG and welcome to the forum.

    I'm gonna park this link right here and refer to it along the way.

    PNF Suggestions for Paranormal Activity Problems

    It sounds like the energy in the house has changed a bit. Now, this doesn't mean something is there haunting you. However, a change in the energy is something to be noted and not ignored. My suggestion to you is to take small steps on this to see if you can clear that energy and bring it back to balanced with a few wee steps. First, the St. Michael's prayer you can find in the link can be said and even physically posted in the home. Doesn't matter what religion you are...St. Michael the Archangel will come and guard if you pray and call him to.

    Second, if you have never saged the home before, now might be a good time to try that. I'd also use some Palo Santo wood afterwards to draw in positive energy.

    Third, you might also use some Holy Water over the doorways and windows.

    Those are the first three steps I'd try to see if that brings some balance back into the home again.

    Interesting story, Duck. Couple things come to mind. First, have you noticed any decline in either your dog's vision and/or hearing? Thought is a decline in either could confuse the dog, as compared to what he's accustomed to, as the wind blows.

    It also occurs to me you are living in an older house. As I'm sure you know, houses settle. It's possible in the settling process a small gap/crack could have formed. If that's the case, wind blowing through it could be producing a high pitch whistling tone only the dog can hear. Could be a "silent dog whistle" scenario.

    Good advice, Duke. Especially in a case like this, one has to rule out all physical changes to the house and the dog.

    Brings to mind my very old dog. She was never afraid of thunder. Never bothered her at all. Suddenly, two years ago, she turned into a mass of shaking fearful dog pretty much trying to hide under me during a storm. This dog is big...she's about 100 pounds, so when she gets scared, the entire bed shakes when she's on it with me. This was entirely new behavior with no clue as to why this suddenly changed for her. Still happens to this day.

    Animals can have changes just as humans can. And they are very sensitive to sounds and energy changes in general.

    Btw, the dog's new found spot in the kitchen during wind could provide a clue as to where a high pitched tone may be originating. Sound levels attenuate at the inverse of the distance squared, so the kitchen might be the furthest point in the house from where the tone is being generated. Of course the medium through which the sound travels must also be taken into account, the kitchen could be the "sweet spot" where the distance and sound attenuaters/dampeners (walls, door, furniture etc.) offer the most relief to the dog.

    I was thinking this over last night too. I thought that either he was settling near something for the comfort, or didn't want to be in your room because of the wind noise. I agree with Duke that it could be high pitched and annoying to an old dogs ears. All sorts of things make whistling in the wind - wires, plastic guttering, gaps in slates, weather strips or siding, so could be that. Could also be physically windy and cold where he sleeps too if you have vents under the floorboards. I know my old house had cold floors because of vents under them, and the only bit of solid concrete was around the stove - which being an Aga was always warm.

    Another thought is that if your stove has a chimney - that too will make it's own noise in the wind, but maybe more of a lower howl. This could sound like it is speaking his kind of language and be comforting too.

    On the non-physical side, it could be where your dad is deciding to hang out, and your dog is still missing him. Maybe that area still has a scent similar or is where your dog remembers him being.

    I just wouldn't want to banish anything if it was your dad still visiting, and would be happier to lighten the energy of the place with a bit of a clean, some fresh flowers and a bit of music and fun. Possibly have a party or invite friends over for a dinner. This should clear the atmosphere and leave it feeling lighter.

    Also my dogs have been reacting to storms and thunder more in the last couple of years,I'm pretty sure to the storms getting more intense with the Earth changing so rapidly.My whippets now stand under the kitchen table when a storm is brewing.

    Excellent advice. I was thinking the same as Duke. As dogs age their behavior can change due to body changes, eyesight and hearing loss, dementia, tooth pain, anxiety etc. another possibility is seizures. They can be very slight and while going through one an animal can bite. The stress of loosing your dad may have brought on any of these issues. I would recommend a physical for your dog if that is possible for you. Also check the food you are feeding. There has been a lot on the news of late about unhealthy dog food.

    Your feelings of unease may be your intuition turning on. The loss of a parent and the stress of grief can bring on many issues. I would take the advice of raising the house vibes with Palo Santo wood, nice music, dusting and cleaning, decluttering etc. I bet you will see a change right away.
