What is Animal Communication?

Your Dog’s Golden Years Book

Professional animal communicators are available throughout the world, serving as advocates of all species of animals. Their services complement your loving care, along with the professional health careof veterinarians and other providers. With this helpful team, your dog ispromised an excellent quality of life.

When you work with reputable animal communicators, the information they offer comes from the spirit of your dog.The conversation occurs through intuition, also known as telepathy. The job of the communicator is to listen from the heart and to be open to receiving information from the animal’s perspective. That information comes in the form of mental pictures, emotions, physical sensations, energy, and words (although,unlike humans, animals do not use a lot of words). Communicators take everything they sense and put it together like a puzzle to offer a voice for your dog.

You will know quickly whether or not the animal communicator is connecting with your dog. How? It’s simple: you will hear information that the communicator could not have known prior to the session.

For example, when a new client called me to talk to Sasha, her 12-year-old German shepherd, she started by asking, “Can you tell me how she is doing generally?” Immediately, I felt happiness, pride, and fatigue. I asked Sasha to explain why she was feeling these emotions. Sasha communicated by sending a visual image, which came into my awareness. She showed me an image of her going out through a door with her human companion,Elizabeth, in the early morning. They turned left at the end of a driveway and stopped at a mailbox, where Sasha sniffed the bush next to the post. Then they walked on toward a street corner, where they turned right and went a couple of blocks to a park. I saw her wagging her tail and holding her head high. She was proud that she could still go for walks.

When I reported this, Elizabeth laughed and said, “This is exactly our routine every morning at 6:30 a.m.” Next, Sasha sent me an image of walking much slower on the way back, going into their house,lumbering up to a bright blue, oval-shaped dog bed in front of a sliding glass door and plopping down a bit awkwardly. I then felt fatigue in my own body as away of sensing her experience. I sent an acknowledgement to Sasha with a feeling of understanding her exhaustion. Based on the level of deep fatigue I felt while communicating, I explained to Elizabeth that I sensed Sasha was tired most of the time, however, the happiness visuals of her walks offered assurance she was saying they were well worth the effort and provided her much joy. Elizabeth believed my information matched the behaviors she witnessed in Sasha. This allowed her to feel comfortable with my services from that point on, trusting the information was truly coming from Sasha.

When working with senior animals, I ask the dog to show me what it feels like to be in his or her body. I use intuitive awareness to gradually scan from head to tail and slowly down each leg. Pain will arise in my own body, in sensations of burning, throbbing, aching, dullness, sharpness,etc., as I focus on each area. For example, I may suddenly feel a dull, strong ache in my left knee. Then, by focusing on the physical sensation, I send a message back to the dog to clarify what I am receiving. Once I feel that the content is confirmed, I share the details with the person. The information gained can then be taken to the health care professionals working with the dog to assist with the medical care. In this way, and others, animal communication can help you lovingly nurture your dog to the final days.

Before you hire the services of an animal communicator, be sure you feel comfortable with the person’s background,experience, and reputation. It is important that the person has been working as a professional with clients for a period of time. You decided what length of time feels right to you. Perhaps you may want someone who has at least a year of experience, or more. Also, ask them where they have worked. It’s good to find someone that has been offered their services at public events or pet stores. This indicates they are successful with their skills if they are returning to a public venue repeatedly.

Requesting testimonials from a potential communicator can be another way to research and find the best match for you. Ask communicators if they have client references list for you to explore. Another option is to search the internet. You will find a respectable referral list at Finally, in my opinion, personal recommendations from someone you know and trust is an excellent way to find a trustworthy professional animal communicator.

I encourage you to utilize this animal communication services however it best suits you. For instance, you may find it fun to have just one session to gain an overall understanding of the many curiosities you’ve had about your dog throughout your years together. Or, you may prefer to work more regularly with a communicator in order to gain clarity on various issues that arise as your dog’s behavior shifts with age. It is also absolutely fine if you don’t believe in the concept of a person tuning in to your dog for a conversation. If it doesn’t work for you, don’t do it. Being skeptical is completely normal,especially when you try something new that you don’t understand. However, if you are curious and find yourself thinking, I will do anything for my dog, then you might want to give it a try.

Now, onto what senior dogs have to say…

After working for sixteen years with thousands of families, I’ve found the most common request for help is to assess senior animals and their quality of life. I have assisted over 500 senior dogs by being their voice to the best of my abilities. I’m always impressed when they share how they are doing in their old dog body. Routinely, when I ask how they feel, I hear a common and powerful message … life is good! That truly is their motto.

Animals are very skillful at living in the present moment. They don’t worry about the past or fret about the future. Although their past can affect their behaviors, they are not thinking about it over and over the way humans do. They are living in the now and encourage you to join them.
