10 Things You Should Know About Animal Communication

*Adapted from an article written by Val Heart, MBA, PaC. A link to the article in its entirety can be found below.  

Here are some important points that people should know about this work:  

1) Realize that not all communicators are exactly alike. We are all unique individuals and have different skill sets.  

2) No one can make your animals change if they don’t want to. Sometimes the problem isn’t with them; it’s with their diet, background, breeding, training, or situation. They always do what makes sense to them from their viewpoint. An animal communicator's job is to discover what their viewpoint is and then to work with you to help resolve the problem.  

3) Realize what the job actually is: animal communicators are trained to listen telepathically to animals and animals are complicated - just like humans!  

4) Everything we do is considered confidential.    

5) Some problems simply aren’t fixable. If the animal does not want to change, or sees no reason to, they won’t.  

6) What about skeptics? I encourage people and my students to be skeptical. You should listen and observe with your heart, but not be so open minded that you lose your common sense! Not everything that we receive telepathically is going to be 100% accurate; it’s unrealistic to expect it. The best psychics in the world are only about 80% accurate! Often times you will observe positive changes simply because you have chosen to honor them by communicating with them, asking for their perspective and demonstrating that you value their opinion.  

7) If something feels off in your session or you are being told things you feel are not accurate, please, speak up! Don’t worry about hurting our feelings. Animals do not always give information in a linear fashion and can mix up past and present feelings and experiences. We would much rather have an opportunity to inquire further with the animal for clarification and be allowed to clarify comments than to have you go away unhappy, or doubting your experience.  

8) Do your research and choose a few animal communicators that appeal to you.  

9) Interview them; ask questions. How long have they been working as an animal communicator? Tell them a bit about what you are dealing with. Ask if they have worked with this kind of thing before. Listen to your own heart. This will help your peace of mind and feel that you will be working with someone caring and professional.  

10) If at this point, all feels good to you, then make an appointment with the animal communicator. Many companion animals choose to spend their lives attempting to break through our barriers, help us heal, and become reconnected with all Life. Animal communication can change your life and improve the lives of your animal friends!

Code of Ethics

Formulated by Penelope Smith in 1990


Our motivation is compassion for all beings and a desire to help all species understand each other better, particularly to help restore the lost human ability to freely and directly communicate with other species.  

We honor those that come to us for help, not judging, condemning, or invalidating them for their mistakes or misunderstanding but honoring their desire for change and harmony.  We know that to keep this work as pure and harmonious as possible requires that we continually grow spiritually. 

We realize that telepathic communication can be clouded or overlaid by our own unfulfilled emotions, critical judgments, or lack of love for self and others. We walk in humility, willing to recognize and clear up our own errors in understanding others’ communication (human and non-human alike).  We cultivate knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of human, non-human, and interspecies behavior and relationships, to increase the good results of our work. We get whatever education and/or personal help we need to do our work effectively, with compassion, respect, joy, and harmony.  

We seek to draw out the best in everyone and increase understanding toward mutual resolution of problems. We go only where we are asked to help, so that others are receptive and we truly can help. We respect the feelings and ideas of others and work for interspecies understanding, not pitting one side against another but walking with compassion for all. We acknowledge the things that we cannot change and continue where our work can be most effective.  

We respect the privacy of people and animal companions we work with, and honor their desire for confidentiality.  While doing our best to help, we allow others their own dignity and help them to help their animal companions. 

We cultivate understanding and ability in others, rather than dependence on our ability. We offer people ways to be involved in understanding and growth with their fellow beings of other species.  

We acknowledge our limitations, seeking help from other professionals as needed. It is not our job to name and treat diseases, and we refer people to veterinarians for diagnosis of physical illness. We may relay animals’ ideas, feelings, pains, symptoms, as they describe them or as we feel or perceive them, and this may be helpful to veterinary health professionals. We may also assist through handling of stresses, counseling, and other gentle healing methods. We let clients decide for themselves how to work with healing their animal companions’ distress, disease, or injury, given all the information available.  

The goal of any consultation, lecture, workshop, or interspecies experience is more communication, balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings. We follow our heart, honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One.
