Can you tell a pet what to do? – animal communication
I am asked time and again to communicate to an animal to do something. For them to stop misbehaving, to eat their food, to not eat so much food and the list goes on.
I’ve even received correspondence where guardians tell me that they requested the assistance of a communicator, who said that they told a pet to stop a behaviour; that it hasn’t stopped; and that they are at their witts end and ready to rehome their pet.
This nonsense grates me. Instead of ranting I’m rather going to explain to you how communication works.
An animal communicator delivers a message. Yes we are the email delivery service between humans and animals.
A communicator cannot simply tell an animal to do something.
Let’s look at it this way.
If Mary tells her toddler Johnny to eat his vegetables, let’s get specific, uh brussel sprouts, do you think he is simply going to stop pulling faces – because it tastes so yucky – and just eat them?
Do you think if Mary told her husband Paul to stop smoking, do you think he’d flush his smokes and go cold turkey?
Unless it’s a remote operated robot of Johnny and Paul, the likelihood of these orders being performed is little to none.
So what if Mary wants Fido Dog to change his new behaviour of growling at Missy Cat?
Clearly she can’t just tell him to stop so she makes an appointment with a communicator.
During this appointment she discovers that little Johnny’s habit of putting catnip treats in the dog bowl had caused Missy to slap Fido for stealing her favourite thing in the whole world. Fido was upset because he thought that everything in that bowl belonged to him and is now angry with Missy and growls.
The communicator gives her practical ways of helping both pets overcome their issues, and the situation begins to heal.
Communication is not a quick fix but rather about understanding.
Through understanding your pets perspective on a situation, you are able to help them.
Sooo if you speak to a communicator who says that he/she has told your Fido to stop growling and that he will…
You can consider those words to be nonsense…
