What Do Animal Communicators Do?

Animal communicators act as the bridge between the human and animal worlds, facilitating a deeper connection and helping you unlock the secrets your furry (or feathered, or scaled) friend might be holding.

Think of us as translators, deciphering the unique language animals use to express themselves. We employ various techniques, like telepathy, and deep intuitive insights, to tap into your pet’s inner world and gain a clearer understanding of their:

  • Emotions: Is your dog feeling anxious? Does your cat miss an old playmate? An animal communicator can help you understand their emotional landscape and address any underlying issues.
  • Physical needs: Sometimes, discomfort or pain can manifest as behavioral changes. A professional communicator can help uncover hidden physical concerns and guide you toward proper care.
  • Thoughts and perspectives: Ever wonder what your pet thinks of your new roommate or why they dislike a certain spot in the house? Yes, with the help of animal communication, you can learn valuable insights into their unique point of view.
  • Unresolved issues: Past trauma or negative experiences can linger, impacting your pet’s behavior. As an animal communicator, I can help identify and address these issues, promoting healing and positive change.

When you think about what animal communicators do, it’s important to understand that animal communication is not about literal conversations with your pet. It is the interplay of emotions, images, sensations, sounds, and intuitive understanding. We share these into meaningful intuitive data points which help you see your pet in a new light.

What Makes a Great Animal Communicator?

Now you know what an animal communicator is and does, but what makes us so great? 

Well, a good animal communicator is someone who has been specifically trained to intuitively tune in to the psychic thoughts, feelings, visuals, and messages that animals are sending us every day. They share this information with their human client to answer their client’s question.

A GREAT animal communicator has been trained to tune in to an animal’s psychic thoughts, feelings, visuals, and messages as well, but they offer something more: a great pet communicator puts their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas aside to make way for the deep, soul level wisdom that animals have.

That great animal communicator also knows how to share the wisdom from that animal EXACTLY as the animal shared it, without adding any of their own flair or interpretations to it.

Someone who is trained to step their ego aside gives the best readings because they open the door to whatever it is the animal wants their human friend to know. 

Several qualities contribute to this:


A great animal communicator is empathetic and compassionate, able to understand and connect with the emotions and experiences of both animals and their human companions.


Strong intuitive abilities are essential for effectively receiving and interpreting messages from animals. A great communicator trusts their intuition and uses it as a guiding force in their practice.


Clear communication is crucial for conveying messages accurately between animals and humans. This includes the ability to articulate insights and information in a way that is understandable and meaningful to both parties.


Being patient and open-minded allows an animal communicator to build trust with animals and clients, creating a safe space for communication to unfold naturally.


Upholding ethical standards and integrity is important for all animal communicators. This involves respecting  privacy, maintaining confidentiality, and always prioritizing the well-being of the animals involved.


Great animal communicators are committed to ongoing learning and professional development. They stay updated on advancements in the field, deepen their understanding of animal behavior and psychology, and refine their communication techniques over time.


Above all, a genuine love and respect for animals drive great communicators in their work. This love forms the foundation of their connection with animals and motivates them to advocate for the well-being and understanding of all creatures.

What to Expect From An Animal Communicator

When you’re having challenges with your dog, cat, or any pet, you may find that everyone and their mother has advice for you: “Take them to the vet! Go see a trainer! Be more firm!” The list goes on. 

However, you may wonder if there is another way. Just what are the abilities of an animal communicator?

Well folks, in certain situations, using a professional animal communicator can cut through all the noise. How, you ask? Unlike others who simply observe your pet and offer their interpretations, professional communicators have the unique ability to engage your pet directly, actually ASK what is happening, and relay the responses to you in your pet’s own words.


You could spend all day watching your dog barking at unseen things in the living room, but your conclusion about what is going on will only be based on your personal experience. Now, picture this: with a professional animal communicator, you can bypass the guesswork and directly discover what’s on your dog’s mind. Suddenly, you move from thinking, “Maybe he’s reacting to mice in the walls” to learning he doesn’t like the next door neighbor’s dog.


Now that you know the incredible value of working with a professional, you may be trying to decide the best person to work with. Many of us have a friend who seems attuned to animals. Perhaps they even say, “I talk to my pets all the time. I can talk to your pet too!” but there can be challenges in this.

Great Professional pet communicators are specifically trained in two critical areas that your animal-loving neighbor likely isn’t:

  • A great professional animal communicator knows how to separate what they “think” the issue is from what the animal shares with them. Communication with animals requires experience and education to ensure that the communicator doesn’t inadvertently inject their own opinions. Often, personal beliefs don’t align with what the animal truly wants to express.
  • A great professional pet communicator recognizes that it’s the animal who leads the conversation. In my training, I help students work with the animal to support the animal’s message, rather than trying to manipulate the situation. Many inexperienced communicators try to steer the dialogue according to the client’s wishes, rather than honoring the animal’s voice and wishes.

The beauty of hiring a professional animal communicator is that their service can be beneficial in nearly every situation, provided you find the right person who resonates with you and your pet.

What is a Certified Animal Communicator?

Speaking of professionals, you may be wondering about certified pet communicators

A certified animal communicator is someone who has formal training and certification in the field of animal communication. This training typically involves learning the correct techniques to develop and enhance intuitive abilities, as well as gaining knowledge about animal behavior, psychology, and communication methods.

Becoming a certified animal communicator demonstrates a commitment to professionalism, ethical standards, and the ongoing pursuit of knowledge and skill development in the practice of interspecies communication. Here are some quick resources to get you started on this path.

What Do You Need to Know Before Hiring a Professional Animal Communicator?

If you’re thinking about hiring an Animal Communicator for a consultation, where they can connect with your pet on a psychic level to receive messages, you likely fall into one of these categories:

  • You’re facing behavioral challenges with your pet.
  • Your pet is sick, and you seek insights to help them.
  • You deeply cherish your pet and want to strengthen your connection.
  • Or you may have lots of other reasons!

But how do you know if the person you chose can give you the reading you’re looking for? Drawing from my experience as a professional animal communicator and teacher for over two decades, I’ve identified these key qualities that are crucial for delivering exceptional readings:


Look at the training they received, as well as their experience in the field before you hire them. The communicators I train undergo a rigorous program to ensure they have the necessary expertise and confidence to support you and your animal in any situation.


Do they seem to understand animals better than the animals themselves? Successful communicators, during a reading, allow the animal to take the lead. Instead of telling the animal how to behave properly, they present the animal with the challenge and open to the innate wisdom within the animal.


Inexperienced communicators often focus solely on the physical aspects of the animal, such as overgrown nails or dietary preferences. When a pet communication session doesn’t delve deeper, into the Soul Level, the answers provided by the animal tend to be shallow, superficial, and even confusing. Experienced, compassionate, and aligned animal communicators deliver a deeper understanding of the situation, facilitating changes on both the physical and spiritual levels. Be sure your chosen communicator can connect at both levels.


Do you LIKE the person you have chosen as your pet psychic? You should feel comfortable and connected with the person you choose. When you receive an animal communication reading, you have to be vulnerable. If you find the communicator irritating or they come across as a know-it-all, or if you don’t like the way they talk about animals, it’s a sign they may not be the right fit for you. Move on. Don’t hesitate to explore other options.

Taking these four things into account when selecting your pet communicator sets you and your pet on the path to a positive and insightful reading experience.

What Animal Communication is NOT!

certified animal communicator

One of the essential things to understand about animal communication concerns what it can and cannot achieve.

When I first started out, I didn’t understand the true essence of establishing a connection with animals and, more importantly, what an animal communicator could not and should not do.

From my personal experience of over 20 years as a telephatic animal communicator, I realized the real purpose of talking to animals. And realizing it needed to be an integral part of my life as a professional! 

I share this because you may also be unaware of how much more there is to animal communication beyond establishing a psychic connection with pets.

Animal communication is not:

  1. Telepathy without boundaries: While talking to animals involves telepathic connections, it is not about invading an animal’s privacy or manipulating their thoughts. It respects the boundaries and autonomy of animals, allowing them to choose whether or not to communicate.

  2. Magic or supernatural powers: Animal communication is a skill that can be learned and developed through practice and training. It does not rely on mystical or supernatural abilities but rather on honing innate intuitive faculties.

  3. A substitute for professional veterinary care: An animal communicator may complement traditional veterinary care, but is not a replacement for it. As professionals, we encourage clients to seek veterinary advice for health concerns.

  4. Mind reading or mind control: Animal communicators use empathic connections and telepathic exchanges of information, but this does not involve reading or controlling an animal’s mind. It is about listening to and understanding the animal’s perspective rather than imposing human will upon them.

  5. Guaranteed solutions to behavioral issues: While communicating with animals can provide insights into the underlying causes of behavioral issues, it does not offer instant solutions or quick fixes. This is rather a collaborative process that requires patience, understanding, and ongoing communication between the animal, the communicator, and the caregiver.

  6. A one-way conversation: Communicating with animals is not solely about humans transmitting messages to animals. It is a two-way exchange where animals also convey their thoughts, feelings, and needs to humans. Effective communication involves active listening and mutual respect between both parties.

  7. Limited to verbal communication: Animal communicators extend beyond verbal language and body language to include non-verbal cues in energy, emotions, and intuition. 

How Do You Become a Telepathic Animal Communicator?

So, how does one become a pet communicator, you ask?

Becoming a telepathic animal communicator involves developing and honing specific skills and abilities. Here are some general steps to help you embark on this journey:

Understanding Telepathy

Get comfortable with the concept of telepathy, which is the ability to transmit thoughts, feelings, or information without using conventional communication methods. In my animal communicator classes, I teach my students all about how telepathy works and its potential applications in animal communication.

Developing Intuition

Delve into the world of your intuition, which serves as the foundation for telepathic communication. Practice mindfulness, meditation, and visualization exercises to quiet the mind, heighten your awareness, and attune to subtle energy signals already all around you.

Connecting with Nature

Spend time in nature and observe animals in their natural habitat. Develop a deep appreciation for the interconnectedness of all living beings and the natural world. Paying attention in this way helps you align with the hidden energy exchanges between animals.

Location Is Not a Barrier!

Did you know physical proximity is not a requirement for successful animal communication consultations? The animal need not be present with you or the communicator to have a successful reading. In fact, many experienced communicators prefer working without the physical presence of the animal. We discuss this in depth during my courses!

Building Trust

Establish a trusting and respectful relationship with animals. Approach them with an open heart, genuine curiosity, and unconditional love (you cannot “order” an animal to cease specific behaviors through psychic means). Respect their boundaries, consent, and autonomy, and seek permission before attempting to communicate telepathically.

Practicing Communication

Practice telepathic communication with animals in a relaxed and non-judgmental manner. Start with very simple exercises, such as sending and receiving thoughts or emotions to and from a willing animal partner. Practice patience, persistence, and humility as you refine your skills.

Seeking Guidance

Seek guidance and mentorship from experienced animal communicators or telepathic practitioners. Attend workshops, seminars, or training programs focused on animal communication and telepathy. Learn from their insights, techniques, and practical tips.

Continued Learning

Embrace lifelong learning and growth as a telepathic animal communicator. Stay curious, open-minded, and receptive to new ideas, perspectives, and experiences. Explore diverse modalities, approaches, and techniques to expand your toolkit and enhance your effectiveness.

Why is Animal Communication so Important Now?

Our world is currently navigating a challenging phase, one that has prompted many of us to seek more kindness, deeper connections, and more love. Right into the presence and paws of our cherished pets — our loyal companions with arms, legs, paws, and wings.

Enter animal communication, the best way to truly experience the depth of connection with our animal friends. Communicating with our pets involves an intentional psychic connection between a person and their animal companion. It is through that connection, often referred to as telepathic communication, that animals can share their thoughts, emotions, and unique experiences with the animal communicator.

Picture uncovering the mystery behind your cat’s aversion to red, squishy balls or understanding why your dog hesitates to walk on hardwood floors. Imagine how much more compassion you would feel for your pet and how easy it would be to make changes that assist their life with you.

With so many people around the globe leaning into the love of their beloved pets, the world of animal communicators is exploding in a loving, extraordinary way.
