Talking with Your Pets Every Day


People that have the best experiences with their pets are the people that communicate with them on a regular basis. There's no trick to it and you don't have to be a trained animal communicator to create an environment of communication with your pets. There can be many ways to communicate with your pets too. There's talking of course, eye contact (although some breeds may become agitated with long direct contact - know your breeds,) smiling and praise, petting and affectionate contact, play and enrichment activities, singing, head and facial gestures, and numerous other forms of contact.

The first rule of thumb is to realize that your pets are intelligent, conscience, aware, complex, thinking, individuals, that are very capable of understanding you. A panel of today's leading scientists (including Dr Stephen Hawking) recently proclaimed animal and human consciousness the same.

It helps to start when they are young pups or kittens, but it's not necessary, even an older adopted pet will understand you if given the chance and all the love in the world.
