7 Spring Dog Tips to Do Today!

7 spring dog tips

7 spring dog tipsJust last week I helped shovel 20 inches of snow. Today it’s 70! Are you ready for Spring?

Dogs are ready for spring and sniffing like crazy on walks. Both you and your dog will enjoy the wonderful, warmer weather after checking these spring dog tips:

  • ExerciseSlowly increase the distance and speed of your dog’s walks and play time. Like us, our dogs weren’t very active this long winter. He needs to slowly increase his endurance too! Years ago, I helped a collapsed dog on the first warm day of spring.
  • Heartworm Time – Does your dog need a Heartworm blood test? Hobbes takes heartworm prevention year-round and others take it from April to November. Ask your vet what is best for your dog.
  • Tick Season is here! Ticks come out at 40 degrees. They love the warm weather and wait for you and your dog to walk by. Protect yourself and check your dog and outdoor cats.
  • Water! Take water with you on long walks and car rides. My outdoor dog water dish is out next to the sidewalk with lots of dogs stopping for a drink. Hobbes’ dog friend is enjoying his wading pool to cool off.
  • Grooming – After a long winter, dogs enjoy feeling lighter after a great haircut or grooming. Time to start combing and brushing out the extra hair. A perfect time to bond with your dog.
  • Car Rides – Remember to open your car windows for your dog. Vehicles heat up quickly now.
  • Thunderstorms – Thunderstorm season is coming. Is your dog afraid? Start using these tips to make life easier for your dog.
    After our endless winter, let’s all get outside and enjoy.

Pet Psychic or Animal Communicator?

Pet psychic or animal communicator?

Pet psychic or animal communicator? Over 10 years ago, I started to learn about animal communication and realized it came easy to me. I often said I was “psychic” with certain people in my life. I meant we had a connection, and I just “knew stuff” with my intuition.

I freaked out my college roommate by saying, “I haven’t heard from Mike in a while.” A few days later, I received an air mail letter from overseas. She left me a note, “I don’t want to know if this is from Mike!” I also knew exactly when each of my parents died — I wasn’t with them, I just knew.

After I worked with an animal communicator, I asked how I could learn to talk with animals. She said we all could talk to animals as little kids and we were told it wasn’t real.

We all have intuition and some us are able to trust it more. How often do you just know someone is going to cut you off in traffic?

I’m honored to be included the Star Tribune article on holistic pet care in Twin Cities. As an animal communicator, I help sick pets explain to their pet parents what is bothering them.

7 Ideas for Pet New Year’s Resolutions

Pet New Year's Resolutions

Pet New Year's ResolutionsThe new year is approaching fast with the 2019 New Year’s celebrations. Many people think about their New Year’s Resolutions. Have you thought about your pet New Year’s Resolutions?

For 2018 I added Hobbes, my Wheaten, to the mix of resolutions or aspiring new intentions. Do you need ideas for pet New Year’s resolutions?

Here are some quick ideas for you and your pet New Year resolutions:

  • Sit quietly with your pet (cat, dog, bird, ferret, horse, etc.) and just spend time with him. No phone, tablet, television, or other distractions. Just be together for 5 minutes.
  • Check your dog and cat’s tags. Is the information up to date? Did you disconnect the landline and only have a cell phone? Is the collar in great condition? Order tags if needed.
  • Initiate play with your pet. He may be surprised!
  • With cold or hot weather, pets get as bored as we are in the house. Read some great ideas to bring joy into everyone’s life.
  • Does your dog need cold weather gear? After trying several types of dog booties, Hobbes likes PAWZ Dog Boots. He lifts each paw as I put on the boot. The thin, rubber boots are great for older dogs who slip on the floor.
  • Do you know exactly what your pet eats? Do you recognize all the ingredients? Ask your local, knowledgeable pet food store for ideas. Do what is best for you and your pet.
  • Go for a walk or add 5 minutes to your usual walk with your dog. Some cats enjoy walking with harness and leash too.

Most importantly, enjoy your pet with these pet New Year’s resolutions.

Ever wonder what your pet is thinking, or why she’s doing certain things? He may have ideas for his pet new year’s resolutions! Animal Communication will tell you – in your pet’s own words! Get a transcript of a conversation with your pet! Purchase an Animal Communication today! 

Sea Turtle and Manta Ray Animal Communications

Sea turtle and manta rays animal communications

My first sea turtle and manta ray animal communications happened on vacation in Hawaii. We escaped the first blast of winter 2017-2018!

Years ago, we spent time in Maui and missed the Road to Hana. It was on my To Do List!  We spent 2-1/2 days driving over 50 miles one way around 620 hair pin curves, 46 single bridges, and saw lots of waterfalls. It was worth the wait!

While exploring, I experienced a sea turtle and manta ray animal communications! It wasn’t planned. It just happened.

Is my pet telling me something?

Do you wonder “is my pet telling me something?” or “why is he doing that?”

Recently Hobbes started limping on his front leg. I wasn’t sure what was going on. I checked his foot and didn’t find anything. I immediately made an appointment with his vet.

The next day at his appointment, the vet looked at his “sore foot.” He asked, “Do you clip his nails?” Guilt crept in — what did I do?

To me, September is the month of change. Schedules change, weather changes, routines change, amount of daylight changes. Do changes affect pets? I say yes!
