I had the fantastic opportunity to contribute to an article about animal communication for SheKnows.  This is the online magazine that named me as one of 5 pet bloggers people need to know and opened the door to a few opportunities to work with major brands.

I’ve written about my experience with animal communicators, most recently about my Valentine’s Gift to our dogs.  Animal communication is a growing trend and I’ve written about how to tell if someone is the real deal.  For SheKnows, I contributed the following…

Are animal communicators for real?

Depending on how open-minded you are, you might not buy into the whole idea of animal communication. It’s normal to be skeptical and for good reason: animal communication defies logic. That said, thousands of people around the world work as animal communicators, but as with any profession, not all of them are genuine. Do your research before handing over your hard-earned money. Kimberly Gauthier, the blogger behind Keep The Tail Wagging, shares her opinion. “I’ve spoken with a couple of animal communicators who were not the real deal. This is a growing profession that is ripe for fraud and people need to hold on tight to their wallets — which is hard when it comes to the emotions that surround our love of our pets,” she cautions.

While animal communicators can help identify an injury or illness, it is probably best to consult with your veterinarian first during an emotionally vulnerable time. When you’re looking for answers, it’s easy to divulge too much information to someone who says they’re going to talk to your animal.

  1. We have tried three animal communicators total. The last one was recommended to us by Jasmine’s chiropractor. I can honestly tell you that she’s something else. Her reports are thorough, detailed and amazing. We had her connect with Jasmine twice in the past, and recently the day before Jasmine’s passing – the situation looked so bleak I really wanted to know what Jasmine wanted to do.

    The communicator described everything we’ve been looking at. It was as if she’s been in the house with us the entire time. She even knew something we did not at the time, about Jasmine’s liver. Only after that hubby said that Jasmine’s chiropractor, two days before that, noted that Jasmine’s liver was swollen and that she was going to talk about that to her primary vet.

  2. Animals and human interaction take time and understanding too often we treat our dogs and humans and except them to act in human ways when in reality they ae dogs

    • So very true. A read a blog post a few months back that had a title like….That is NOT your dog’s guilty face – and it went on to explain that we need to stop putting human emotions on our dogs. Although our dogs think and feel, they don’t react to things the way we do. So when I caught Blue destroying a package, he was reacting to my tone, not admitting that he’d been caught doing something wrong. Some will disagree, but keeping this thought process in mind has helped me better train our dogs.
