Honestly, all they need now is a Mystery Machine van.
The paranormal investigations started back in 2012 when Brian stayed over in Northamptonshire’s Lilford Hall where he experienced a number of spooky goings on.
Now, he runs Paranormal Rescue with his wife – and Bond, of course – releasing books, documentaries and TV shows.
Explaining how he discovered his faithful friend’s penchant for then paranormal, 61-year-old Brian said: “Bond has a nose for this; he’s a sighthound so his vision is exceptionally good in dark and semi-dark conditions and when he detects something, he’s off like a rocket.
“One time we were visiting an abandoned prison and as soon as my wife took him inside, he ran to an open jail cell where he started growling.
“He went inside and started choking so we rushed him outside and were about to call a vet when he suddenly recovered.
“We later found out that that particular cell was one where two prisoners had died by suicide.
“He has a certain skillset that we find useful.”
Bond was rescued by charity Greyhound Gap after three years as a racing dog, before finding his forever home with Brian and Helen.
It’s quite a turnaround from the animal shelter to investigating paranormal activity.
He’s not forced to work, though.
Often, the couple will just bring along Bond’s bed and see what happens.
Their latest investigation brought them to a home in Shropshire where the owners have reported unusual goings on.
Brian explained: “Sometimes he’ll just lay in his bed and won’t make a sound but other times, he’ll run off and start making a scene if he detects something unusual.
“At this latest house, the couple have been experiencing strange noises, pictures falling off the walls, and unexplainable fires in the barns.
“When we do our investigations, we rig the houses with audio equipment, use ghost boxes, camera, and try to capture what we can to understand if it really is something paranormal or not.
“I would say around 3-5 percent of what I’ve experienced has been genuinely defying rational explanation.”
