    Rupert Sheldrake (1999a) has published a note in the previous issue of the Journal criticising our research into the ‘psychic pet’ phenomenon. Certain points arising from this criticism have also been included in his recent book, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home and Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (Sheldrake 1999b). This paper outlines why we believe his criticisms to be invalid.
