Communicating with pets can go far beyond training them to do simple tasks or tricks, and there is a significant value to be gained from making an effort. You can enjoy a much more fulfilling and rewarding relationship with your pet if you make an attempt to communicate and understand the dogs or cats that share your home.
It is no exaggeration to say that in many cases, the loyalty and love which can spring up between pet parents and their chosen furry friends can bring real happiness to both, and can make you best friends in life. Whether your pet is a purebred or a rescue from a community organization, you can make the connection if you give it an honest effort, and end up being very glad that you did so.
Communication with your pet involves a whole different set of skills and an entirely different approach than talking with humans. Your pets understand some simple spoken commands, of course, as well as frequently repeated names, but real communication goes far beyond those simple one-word exchanges. To establish a real connection, you must be willing to build a bridge that does not rely on speech, but on a mental exchange instead, i.e. a kind of pet telepathy.
The first step is to find an environment which is both pleasing and free of distraction for you and your pet, someplace conducive to subtle exchanges between the two of you. Next, get your pet's attention, and repeat its name in your mind over and over if necessary, while making steady eye contact.
Envision your pet's body along with his name, all within your mind, and send this composite image to him while he is there close to you. This proposal may sound like science fiction, but everyone is capable of doing this, although you may need some initial assistance from a pet consultant or advisor who is skilled at the practice.
Then frame a question in your mind, and telepathically ask your pet what he would like you to do for him. Try to be as open and receptive as possible for whatever return you might receive, and be aware that this could involve a smell, a feeling, a sound, or thought. Whatever it is that you sense, carry out that understanding. Before you do the action, though, send back your response, indicating that you have received your pet's communication and that you appreciate his thoughts.
Extend the original idea to include any other questions or desired communications you may have in mind, and in each case, take your time in attempting to convey your thoughts properly. By the same token, be sure to trust your receptivity and ability to interpret your pet's communications. It may take some time and practice, but you'll find that making this kind of connection with your pet is well worth your while.
