Are you playing Dr Dolittle?
You don’t have to be Dr. Dolittle to communicate with Animals, in fact, it’s simpler than you think. You actually do it every time you interact with your family pet, believe it or not.
Of course, one of the biggest questions is: Do you have to be psychic to talk to animals?
Well yes you do, however everyone has a little intuitive sense – and if it is nurtured it can blossom into something quite beautiful. Just like Sandra Bullock says in the movie Practical Magic. “There’s a little witch in all of us.” The only problem you may be having is that your ability isn’t fine-tuned. How does one change that? It’s simple – you put the old cliché of practice makes perfect into good use.
The key is patience and love.
Start With Something Easy
You’ll want to practice on a family pet before taking a leap to anything else. A cat or dog who is familiar to you is the best choice to begin. Cats can be a tad more difficult as they tend to pick and choose who they wish to talk to (or listen to). Another cliché comes to mind “dogs have owner’s cats have slaves” in the communication context it very much the same. If you don’t already have a good healthy relationship with your cat, consider a family dog. They can be easier as they are pack animals and will be more apt to tune into the leader of their pack, which in this case – is you.
Gentle and Quiet Wins
Start by taking your dog into a quiet room. He knows the tone of your voice, so you are one step ahead of the game. Sit down on the floor next to him, or if he is allowed on the couch or bed (lucky dog), have him sit next to you. Pet him in his favourite spot until he is settled in. Then start talking quietly to him in a loving tone. Find one short sentence or word and use it over and over. For example, “Hulloo Blu Dawg” Everyone has their own phrase for their own pet, use whatever you like we’ll call this your key phrase. When you have gone over your key phrase about 10 times in a rhythmic way, close your eyes and be silent. Stop petting him and begin to form a “picture” in your mind of what you want him to know. Perhaps think of giving him a treat or how he responds when you give him a treat. So you’re in fact forming an “idea” in your head, which you know your dog will relate to. Animals like dogs and cats and some of the larger mammals can pick this up fairly quickly. If you want to ask him to please put his head in your lap, form a picture of him doing just that in your mind along with a picture of your rubbing his favourite spot after he does. With the picture in your mind and following that up with your verbal phrase – you should find that he will ask for the treat or put his head in your lap. I would now say reciprocate the action with a reward of the treat you have been thinking of.
Now if your dog walks away it’s not necessarily because you are doing it wrong. He could simply not be in the mood – so don’t give up – give it a try on another day. If it works, congratulations! You have just experienced your first communication with your dog – well maybe not your first – but you get the picture.
Once you start to get the hang of it you will learn to know that those looks on their faces do have far more meaning behind them than you had initially realised!
