Often, dogs can sense when there’s a baby around, even when the baby is still in their mum’s belly! And that’s especially the case when they start to feel baby kicking!

Experts say that dogs can sense pregnancies even before commercialised pregnancy tests can detect them! This is due in part to their extraordinary sense of smell, which is much more developed than ours.

We’re pretty sure this dog knows there’s a bun in the oven because he’s being so gentle and sweet with his pregnant mum. It’s the kicking he’s not so used to!


Dog feels baby kicking

In the video, the adorable dog can be seen resting his head on his owner’s belly. The two are just enjoying a nice nap in each other’s (and the baby’s) company.

Suddenly, the baby gives a little kick, which the dog immediately feels. Surprised, he lifts his head up and starts looking at his owner’s belly quizzically.

Viral dog video

The mum can’t help but laugh at her dog’s reaction. But she’s not the only one who enjoyed the adorable video. In fact, the dog’s behaviour went viral, with people all around the world commenting about him:

“He looked at her like “did you feel that?”, wrote one viewer.

Dogs love us and fill our lives with laughter even before we are born. We are so lucky to have them!
