Belief and Trust in Animal Communication

I get it. Animal communication is hard to wrap our brains around. There is no widely known scientific explanation for it. It takes a lot of trust, and an ongoing belief that animal communication works. Belief and trust can be really hard to hold on to when we experience a “hear one thing, but observe the opposite” phenomenon during an animal communication session. There are several examples of clients receiving information from their pet that doesn’t directly align with their observations: […]

Pet Names DO Matter!

Through my work as an animal communicator, I never tire of hearing some of the creative and distinctive names that humans assign their pets. It is common for clients to want to know if their newly adopted pet likes their new name. While the responses from the animals are varied, I recognize that names DO matter to animals, but not in the way we might think. A name is a name to the animals, but it is the energetic reaction that we humans might have when […]

Toys to Keep Pets Challenged

When I work with animal communication clients regarding certain behavioral issues with their dog or cat, it is not uncommon for a part of the cause to be related to anxiety or boredom, prey drive/hunting instinct, or territorialism. Of course, every animal’s rationale for their behavior is different and it is important to understand what is driving them to react as they do. But quite often the solution involves redirecting the pet to a less destructive, more productive activity. Toys to keep your […]

Thunder Fear in Dogs

Thunder and lightning season is upon us. Our dogs are probably acutely aware of that fact already! A portion of my animal communication work in the spring and summer months relates to dogs with thunder fear or anxiety. My own dog, now passed, had thunder anxiety so I know first hand that it is not fun for the dog or human when storms start to roll in. Not all dogs have a reaction to thunder and lightning, and some dogs develop anxiety […]

Animal Communication and Body Language

An animal communication client of mine has been studying up on animal body language as they get to know their new puppy. They wonder about a dog’s body language and how it relates to their feelings from an animal communication point of view. I’m so glad they asked! I’ve never thought about this before, and I’ve taken some time ponder. More than 90% of my animal communication consultations are done via phone. I generally have a photo of the animal(s) as a focal point, but […]

Talking To Your Animals is Great Validation!

Animal communication is, in its simplest form, validation for both you and for your pets. External validation helps us know we are on track and making a difference in our world and for those around us. It serves the same purpose for our pets. The dictionary definition lists: Validation – to make somebody feel valued as a person, or feel that his or her ideas or opinions are worthwhile; confirm truthfulness of something – to confirm or establish the truthfulness or soundness […]

Halloween Safety for our Pets

As the holidays approach, it is important to keep our pets in mind. We don’t always consider Halloween as part of the holidays, but nonetheless it is a day, or series of days, which may cause some stress for our pets.
