Twyla Also consider anything electrical. An appliance, lamp, house wiring itself.

Other half is an electrician. He went on a job where the owner's dog was doing about the same. They had checked everything and was just grabbing at straws by the time they called for an electrician. The socket was charred- inside, not visible by just looking, no fire yet, but there would have been one.

Shaolin I'd go with something odd you can't hear. Both of my dogs have been "alerting" to stuff I can't hear over the last week or so. Tonight, I discovered my neighbors a few houses down having a huge screaming match on their lawn. I couldn't hear it in the house, but both dogs could.

blehmannwa Some dogs will freak out about sounds we can't hear. My old pit would get the fears at random times. Turns out a neighbor was using a sonic pest repellent. She was hearing it when it was triggered by movement.

It's odd what they hear. Last week there was a big football game downtown (Seahawks/49 ers) and I was home alone with the dogs. Usually there is a T.V, computer, dishwasher, heater --some sort of house noise but I was deliberately not watching the game and enjoying the quiet. I was reading on the couch with the dogs. All of a sudden, their ears came up and if when I listened closely--I could hear a distant musical noise. I turned on the TV just as Seahawks celebrated their win. Must have been all the neighborhood t.v.s and parties but the loudest stadium in the country is less than 10 miles from my house.

llombardo Does sound like she sees something you don't. What's the history on the house ? Anybody die in there? I doubt any animals in the walls would cause that behavior. I know we had a raccoon in the wall once and the dog smelled the walls and followed it through the house, never showed fear, but lots of curiosity.

middleofnowhere Could be squirrel, rodent, or birds nesting in a wall cavity. I had one get really worried when the starling nestlings started fussing. Also when a bird got trapped in the garage.

Could be something wrong in the house. Do you have a carbon monoxide detector that is working? You might want to have that checked. If you have gas appliances, have them checked.

Trust the dog. She knows something's not right even if the humans don't pick up on it.

DutchKarin Sometimes dogs react this way when they have an upset stomach or other internal pain. Just a thought.

Xyst Sin She just jumped off the bed after a quick whine, checked out two of our other dogs to check if they were alright(one being her mortal enemy), started smelling around the room, and then ran out. This is just getting more and more uncomfortable lol. My mother-in-law has requested to trade rooms >.<
