New Year Resolutions

I’m not big on New Year resolutions, but I do appreciate a re-dedication of healthy habits from time to time, whether in January or some other month. Let’s talk about making resolutions, or re-dedicating ourselves to good habits with our beloved pets. What needs attention in your routine with your pet? Is there a behavior shift on which you need to put more attention? During this winter season has your activity or walking routine become haphazard? As our pets age […]

Change the Narrative

Recently a client commented that the family had been living with a behavior from their pet long enough that they had normalized it. It’s not that they weren’t aware and still frustrated, rather they had given up or stopped working consistently with their pet’s behavioral shifts. They were no longer seeing the possibilities of change.The client felt refreshed with enthusiasm after our consultation and interested in revisiting both tried and new training techniques, this time coupled with holding a vision, or energy, […]

Helping Pets with Disruptions

Life is busy. We come and go and plan out our days. Our pets get used to our routine and develop their routine accordingly. No joke! I recently chatted with a cat whose mom was considering a new home-based job instead of being out of the home several hours most days. The kitty was clear that she loves her mom very much… and if mom is going to be home more, please don’t disrupt my routine! It may not come immediately to […]

Honesty is the Best Policy

Our pets treat us as they hope to be treated – unconditional love, sloppy affection, never ending support, and it’s not in their nature to lie. We turn all of that right back on them, and yet it is human nature to want to protect our pets physically AND emotionally. That may mean withholding the truth in some circumstances. I hope this post can help us to reframe our view of protecting our pets vs. supportive honesty. Example We need to tell Fluffy that we will capture […]

Pets Say the Funniest Things

One of the reasons I love communicating with animals so much is they are also uncensored, honest, and sincere. And boy do they say some hilarious things! Indulge me as I reminisce. I remember years ago working with Milo for the first time. He had been licking his foreleg for months and his human hoped we could understand why. This was a unique one for me and continues to be the only time an animal has explained that the lick sore is “his friend” and […]

Final Stage of Life Conversations

The topic of the final stage of our pet’s life is hard to think about. I suspect there is a part of us that believes we may bring about the end sooner if we admit that it is approaching; however, discussing with your pet it’s end of life can be the best, most fulfilling discussion you’ve ever had with them. The opportunity to express your deep love and appreciation for your pet while you can still enjoy more time together is priceless. These discussions are helpful […]

Supporting our Aging Pets

Where does the time go?  We know that our pets will age, but that doesn’t make it easier when we start to see the physical symptoms. Sometimes the indicators show up slowly over time; for some animals it seems like they age almost overnight. We know how to help with physical comfort but what about the emotions? Do we know how best to support our beloved pets as they come to terms with less energy, less mobility, and/or a decline in […]

Discussing Animal Communication with Our Veterinarian

I am grateful that I have a very open and respectful relationship with my pet’s health care providers. It occurs to me, however, that some of us may hold back a bit with our veterinarians when discussing the information that has come forth utilizing animal communication with our pets. I know there are many animal health care practitioners – veterinarians, techs, DVM specialists, alternative practitioners – who recognize and utilize the value of animal communication. Many refer their clients and many use […]

Frequently Asked Animal Communication Questions

Do you wonder what people ask their pets during an animal communication consultation? Every animal communication session is different, however here are a few questions that come up regularly. “Is my pet happy?” or “Am I meeting all my pet’s needs?” It doesn’t seem to matter if this is the first time a human is communicating with their pet or if they regularly communicate, this is a very common question. We want to know if we are providing a quality experience […]
