What Can Pet Communication Do for Me?

Pet communication, in simple terms, is talking and chatting with your pets.

As pet communicators, we act as an ‘intermediary,’ assisting in the ‘transmission’ and ‘translation’ of messages from animals to their owners.

Through pet communication, we can help:

  1. Discover what matters to your pet in their life.
  2. Understand the issues behind your pet’s behavior (possibly resolving them at the same time).
  3. Clarify communication breakdowns and misunderstandings between caregivers and pets.
  4. Discuss the impact of life changes (moving, divorce, travel) on pets or prepare them psychologically in advance.
  5. Assist pets in adapting to new family members (babies or other pets).
  6. Understand if your pet would accept another companion.
  7. Learn about the life your adopted pet had before living with you.
  8. Understand how your pet feels physically and adjust care accordingly.
  9. Understand your pet’s feelings about euthanasia or other end-of-life decisions.
  10. Facilitate healing from grief before and after the passing of a pet.
  11. Check in on the well-being of departed pet friends.
  12. See if your pet has anything special they want to share with you.

Pet communication cannot replace ‘animal behavior training’ and ‘veterinary treatment,’ but it can help us better understand our animal friends!”

How Pet Communicator Talks to Animals?

Pet communicators use a method known as ‘intuitive communication’ to communicate with animals.

In simple terms, it’s somewhat like ‘telepathy’ or ‘conveying messages with the mind.’ Therefore, pet communicators don’t necessarily need to be physically present with the animals; they can conduct pet communication remotely using photos.

Although ‘communication’ might sound like a back-and-forth dialogue, intuitive communication with animals doesn’t work that way.

Pet communicators receive information intuitively, which can be in the form of ‘images,’ ‘sensations of the senses,’ ‘experiences,’ and, occasionally, ‘clear verbal messages.’ However, it is far from the conventional idea of animals speaking in human language.”

Is Pet Communication Accurate? Interpretation Requires Collaboration

Is the information obtained through intuitive communication ‘accurate’? How important is the accuracy of pet communication? Why is it that sometimes what pet communicators convey is completely different from what I actually observe?

There are several reasons why the information provided by pet communicators may differ from what caregivers observe:

Misunderstanding of “Translation”

The sensory perceptions of animals differ significantly from ours.

For example, some caregivers may ask verification questions like, “What color is the bowl my cat or dog eats from?” But do you know what the world looks like to a dog or a cat?”

When a pet communicator receives sensory messages from an animal and then responds using ‘human logic,’ it’s highly likely to be inaccurate (Regarding the image above, what color do you think it is?).

Cats and dogs have relatively good vision, but if we consider the ‘sensory perception’ of a creature like a mouse, can you tell what it is?

So, sometimes, it’s not that pet communicators intentionally speak in a ‘vague’ manner. It’s because if they were to make definitive judgments using human logic, the received sensory messages could easily be misinterpreted.

Difference in Animal Perception and Your Perception

Another situation where misinterpretation can occur is when the caregiver inquires about something that the animal either “doesn’t care about” or “thinks differently about” compared to the caregiver’s perspective.

For example, a dog might say, “He’s always bullied by the cat at home.” However, the owner insists, “The dog instigates the cat first, and the cat only retaliates.” Is this a misinterpretation, or does the dog genuinely perceive it this way?

In such cases, even in human-to-human communication, misunderstandings are common. You can try telling the same story to five different people and ask for their understanding. Will their interpretations be identical? Even if there aren’t significant differences, there will likely be some variations in their responses!

Human communication itself is prone to such nuances, so imagine conveying messages through a third party (a pet communicator)!

How to Interpret Messages

There was once a caregiver who inquired about their pet’s feelings during baths.

The pet communicator received visual information that the dog “keeps running around in the bathroom.” However, the caregiver insisted that their dog sits still and behaves well during baths. Is this a misinterpretation?

Is it possible that the image of the dog “constantly running around in the bathroom” is actually a visual representation of the dog’s psychological state of “nervousness and anxiety” during baths?”

Misalignment in the Communicator

Setting aside the factors mentioned above, it’s also possible that the “communicator themselves” may be experiencing issues leading to misalignment. Even seasoned pet communicators cannot achieve 100% accuracy, and inaccuracies can occur at times.

While a certain level of accuracy is important in pet communication, it’s not the most crucial aspect. The most important thing is to approach it with an open heart, working together with the pet communicator to better understand the pet’s thoughts and needs—this is the essence of communication!

As I mentioned earlier, interpreting the information received through intuitive communication requires discussion between the caregiver and the communicator to achieve the best accuracy. This collaborative effort is the most crucial aspect of communication!

Preparation for Communication

Please provide a clear photo of your pet’s ‘front view’ with clear visibility of the eyes, taken within the last week, as shown in the example image below.

Additionally, please verbally inform your pet 1 to 2 days before the scheduled communication time that ‘there will be a sister coming to chat with us.’ Some pets may be more cautious and may not be willing to interact with strangers, so providing advance notice is a form of respect.

Then, all that’s left is to await the arrival of the scheduled communication time!

How will we proceed?

We will conduct the communication through Google Meet video.

During the session, your pet can be nearby or do whatever they like (sleep, use the litter box) as long as they are ‘comfortable and at ease.’

Before officially starting the communication with the animal, I will first cross-check with the caregiver regarding the pet’s living environment, personality, likes, and dislikes—questions that can be verified.

This not only builds trust between the communicator and the caregiver but also confirms the pet’s expressive ability and willingness. If the accuracy is too low, or if the pet shows no interest in the conversation, it may not be suitable to proceed with the communication.

Once accuracy is confirmed, the caregiver can initiate questions, wait for the pet’s responses, or wait for the pet to initiate conversation. Typically, as long as both parties have the willingness to communicate, the conversation will naturally unfold.

The response time from the pet can vary based on their willingness, expressive ability, and cognitive capacity.

If the caregiver has doubts or concerns about the pet communicator, their emotions can also affect the pet. Therefore, approaching the communication with a ‘trustful and open’ mindset ensures the best communication results!”
