Based on her many years of experience focusing on the lessons our animals are here to teach us, Danielle takes her students beyond receiving simple, intuitive 3D information (toys, food, surroundings), and opens them up to the wonders of animal wisdom.

It’s in this work that students learn how animals guide their humans to overcome obstacles and be their best selves… which often leads clients to gain more from a reading than they originally imagined.

These unique DMS Soul Level™ studies include live webinars, a consistent personal touch from the expert herself, and a thriving world-wide community of support.

This is your tribe!

{ How to get Certified }


This is where you begin!


In Course #101 of the Danielle MacKinnon School, I’ll show you how to merge your innate intuition (even if you aren’t yet aware of it) with that of the animal to experience a depth of connection like never before. You’ll learn how to work with the 3D and Soul Levels of connection to intuitively help people and their animals through lessons and challenges into growth.


Course #102 shows you how to take your skills to the next level so you can communicate with animals with more confidence and with more tools in hand to handle more complicated situations. This program is designed for the animal lovers that value and align what it means to work at the Soul-Level with animals and with humans.


Things are getting exciting! In Course #201 the focus is on learning to manage sessions and handling any challenges presented by the person or the animal in a reading, to create the best reading possible.


This is it! In Course #202, you, Danielle, and a select group of animal intuitives, spend time putting all of the pieces together to create your successful intuitive business. The goal? Get you ready to come out to the world as the exceptional professional animal communicator you are!

{ What’s the icing on the cake? }

(Yes, there’s even more good stuff!)


    As a CPP with your own business, you have the unique opportunity to earn money through your affiliation with the Danielle MacKinnon School. Through the affiliate program you are not only rewarded for each new student you recruit to DMS, you’re also able to add variety to your own services and, in turn, grow your business, your income, and DMS itself.


    This is our way of celebrating the many talents of our CPPs! Here, you can share your skills outside of animal communication with other CPPs and benefit from their areas of expertise, too. Some of these skills align perfectly with intuitive work (e.g., Reiki Master, Shaman), while others may be 3D-world talents (e.g., copywriter, web designer, painter). The Barter Network provides the perfect place to support each other and share your passions.

{ What are the CPPs raving about? }

(Hear it right from the horse-lovers’ mouths…)

“Becoming a Certified Professional Practitioner has changed my life. Having my own animal communication business is something I never imagined until I actively pursued this powerful journey. Making this choice has given definition to my world and day to day existence. I’ve always wanted to help animals, but because of my paralyzing sensitivity, had not thus far figured out how to make that into a reality. Engaging in Danielle’s business course, I am now doing that as a regular pursuit, and it couldn’t be more satisfying and fulfilling. I come from a place of very little technological ability, but through Danielle’s assistance alongside her teaching assistants, I was able to put together a website that draws people in from all over the world. Clients contacting me for sessions happens consistently, and the feedback I receive coupled with connecting to different species is the most rewarding path I’ve ever been on in my life. And to get paid for it? It’s a dream come true. Great things are happening all the time, and I get to meet new, interesting, animal loving people on a regular basis. I’m even leading an upcoming workshop in Costa Rica involving working intuitively with horses! I never foresaw any of this until I took a leap of faith to become a CPP. As daunting as it was to come out as an animal intuitive, I have come to see who I am, and all that I can offer!”

~ Phoebe Hoffman

“I’ve been irretrievably hooked on the journey to become a CPP ever since I found DMS. Step by step, I’ve rediscovered my inner intuition and seen my confidence grow. During my many hours of practice with people and their animals, I have received incredible validation for my work. This has allowed my belief system to shift. I’ve realized that I ​can​ follow my true passion and be an animal communicator! The school community is the best I have ever found in the many places I have studied. What makes the difference at DMS is the interconnectivity, personal approach, and incredible support during the learning period, followed by the support given to us as CPPs as we build our own practice in animal communication.”

~ Daniela Rosu

“Even though I already enjoyed some basic communications with animals, I still had a desire to go deeper with animals and their humans, but I felt I did not have the confidence to begin a business. Danielle’s Soul Level Animal Communication®s classes have fulfilled the that desire, have increased my confidence, and provided a support system that has helped me start my animal intuitive business. Danielle is a wonderful teacher who can intuitively zero in on how to help you overcome your apprehensions and fears as she guides you to ways of empowering yourself. Thank you, Danielle, as I am so filled with gratitude for the transformational experience through your classes.”

~ Patricia Hernandez

“I’m so grateful to be one of Danielle’s CPPs, as I always feel one-hundred-percent supported and encouraged by her. She continually comes up with new ways to help us grow our business and ourselves, and has created a support community of CPPs that I consider a “home base” for sharing advice and celebrating each other’s successes. As a CPP you don’t stop learning—I’m currently enrolled in a master-level class, and Danielle offers mini-courses a few times a year, on topics chosen by us. I’m so proud to have the Danielle MacKinnon School of Animal Communication seal on my website as an endorsement of someone so respected and accomplished in this field—having this certification has led to me being accepted into psychic and healing fairs to give readings and workshops, as well as attracting beautiful clients I feel honored to work with.”

~ Julie Ulrich

“I’ve got to say becoming a CPP with the Danielle MacKinnon School has truly been one of the best things I’ve ever done. I was communicating with animals before I found Danielle’s school, but since enrolling and gaining my certification, I’ve just added so much MORE to my reading, my skill set, and my practice. You could say I’ve added several more tools to my toolbox! But more importantly, the camaraderie that comes with that certification is absolutely priceless. The ability to connect with, share ideas, get advice from, and become really good friends with my fellow CPPs has been absolutely priceless. Again, one of the best things I’ve ever done.”

~ Geri Karabin

“Becoming a CPP is such a blessing! Not only do I now get to enjoy helping people and their animals, but I am also building friends within the CPP community. This community is like no other I’ve ever experienced. I am so grateful to have had Danielle as my mentor through this journey. Now, I love what I do for a living and waking up every morning has never felt better!”
