One of the very few downsides about being animal (besides the thumbs thing. I could do so many more food related activities if I had thumbs!) is that it’s often hard to communicate with our human counterparts. Sure we can growl, yip, meow, scratch, and nose bump, but none of that stuff really conveys a concrete message. Does Fluffy’s howl mean she’s hungry, or that she has to pee? Is Boots scratching at m arm because he wants to play or because he needs a litter box change? At times it can be very confusing for humans and frustrating for us pets.
There are, however, a few humans in the world who are gifted with the ability to “sense” what animals are trying to communicate. These humans are known as animal communicators. Animal communication is a means of communicating telepathically through impressions, thoughts, feelings, and images between two members of different species. This form of communication can often bring out the skeptic in humans, especially in a world fraught with hoaxes and falsities. Though of an open mind, my mom was slightly skeptic when we were approached to do an animal communication session with Cindy Wenger, the owner of Peaceable Kingdom Essentials, and herbal tincture company I’ve written about before.
To begin with, my mom sent Cindy a picture of me along with information including my breed, age, gender, and how long I’ve lived with my humans. On the day set, Cindy called my mom (most, if not all consultations can be done over the phone) for the session. As Cindy connects with the animal in question before calling, she was raring to go with all the impressions I was sending her way. For the rest of the post, I will describe the session with Cindy by listing the questions my mom asked and paraphrasing what Cindy said in response as written down by my mom.
Prudence has very female energy. She is incredibly smart and likes to be involved. Prudence also suffers from a Napoleon Complex [or my humans refer to it, "little dog syndrome"]. Her security is found in routine and she tends to get thrown off by off the cuff events. Boxes, as in moving boxes, were also coming up in Prudence’s mind as well as a sunny, bright, sandy location. There was also mention about a man, someone new that she just met. She also keeps thinking about food. She’s craving greens: sweet peas, green beans, and cranberries.
Question #1: Why Does Prudence Not Like Her Tail Touched?
There is a feeling of violation around her back end and tail. She is sensitive in that area and is holding on to something. I ask if it could be because her tail was docked as a puppy. Cindy agrees this could be the case. Cindy suggests, when petting her, to continue to pet all the way to her tail while visualizing positive things. Dogs manifest our emotions. If we are scared of nervous, so are they.
Question #2: Is Prudence Afraid, When Left Home Alone, That I Won’t Come Back?
Prudence has some separation anxiety, most likely do to her past. Cindy asks if she was a rescue. I explain that I bought her from a breeder that was pretty much a puppy mill.
Question #3: Is Prudence Feeling More Self Confident Since We Started Training?
Slightly, but dogs are resilient creatures. Prudence feels more comfortable and confident with low energy people. She may do well, and gain more confidence being a therapy dog in a nursing home.
Question #4: How Is Prudence’s Skin?
Prudence’s skin is itchy, but it is more of a healing itchy. What ever was causing her to be itchy is healing.
Question #5: Would Prudence Ever Be Open To Sharing Her Home With Another Dog?
Not right now. She needs more confidence and needs to get passed a few things leftover from her past. Would feel like three is a crowd, that one dog (possibly her) would be left out. If I eventually feel like she is ready, I should adopt a male puppy. Prudence would acclimate to male energy better than a female. Females can be catty.
Obviously, with the information we talked about today, it is up to you, the reader, as to whether or not you believe in animal communication. Though she started out skeptical, from the things that she and Cindy talked about, my mom is now a firm believer. She learned a lot about me during the 15 minute session, some of which she knew deep down (especially the answer to question #5), but hearing someone else confirm her suspicions made it real.

If you’ve had a session with an animal communicator, I’d love to hear about your experience, good or bad, in the comments!
Happy tail wags!
