Del Mar, CA, May 18, 2007 --( Researchers at have issued an open call for dogs that know when their owner’s are coming home.

Many dog owners claim their pets anticipate their arrival by going to wait at a door, window, or driveway. Some claim their dogs do this even when they arrive home unexpectedly, or at odd hours. While some researchers, including Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and former Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge University have investigated this phenomena, many scientists remain unconvinced that it really occurs. Now, a new website located at is tackling the question though the collaborative efforts of researchers and skeptics.

The researchers are encouraging dog owners who have noticed this behavior in their dogs to take part in the experiments. The original researchers, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake and skeptical scientist Dr. Richard Wiseman, both support this collaborative re-examination of their experiment and have called it, “the best way forward”.
