What is Animal Communication?
Do you know the difference?

Last month I had a client ask me "What is the difference between an Animal Communicator, a Trainer, and a Behaviorist? Great question! He read my mind because I was already planning on unraveling this beastly maze for you.


An animal behaviorist studies the dominant behaviors and characteristics of a specific species or breed of animal. The key word being studies, which means applying a left-brain, logical, pre-determined, and informed body of knowledge to the observance and understanding of animal behavior. ie. "Dogs and wolves are pack animals." "Felines are obligate carnivores." And "swans mate for life."


An animal trainer is well-versed in how to get animals to do what we want.
They might have a toolbox, a bag of tricks, and treats, to make sure animals develop good manners, follow the rules, play fair, and are socialized in a way that keeps them safe, and safe with others. A trainer might also provide them
with a more specific skill set; like therapy training, police work, agility, or any other activity that requires brain-patterning or a follow-the-leader-type of skill.
Animal trainers aim for compliance, obedience, and at its best, partnership!


Practically speaking, an animal communicator gives an animal a voice. We
can help with behavioral concerns, of course, but with a different objective:
We approach a situation from the animal's perspective, which might not be at all how the human sees things. So essentially, "we take the animal's side."

For this reason, I often will not even read a client's "liner notes" until I've asked the animal my first question, which is ALWAYS, "What would you like to share with me today?" Only after some due pleasantries do we get to the heart of
a matter. Animals will often become more receptive once they feel truly heard.


The telepathic tools an animal communicator engages are actually based in science, and specifically physics. The concepts of a Grand Unified Theory (or Unified Field Theory) Quantum Consciousness, and Wave Particle Duality, which can all take some wrapping your head around, factor into how I can talk to a dog in Ireland while I'm sitting in my home office in Milwaukee. It's a skill I have to keep polishing, but I also have to keep my "logical mind" out of it.
We can't receive "their thoughts" while still holding on to our own point of view.


Sometimes the scope of animal communication can get blurred or influenced, depending on the background and training of the animal communicator, by what they know. I'm certified in Ayurvedic medicine, and also passionate
about holistic healing, so this can color my sessions. I also studied energetic healing and I'm a practicing medium. This filter, and the other modalities, are not, by true definition, animal communication. It's keen to know the difference.

Hope this helps!
