Behavior Issues

There is a huge difference in our cats, Rudy and Toby, since you spoke to them, Sky. They are getting along a whole lot better now. Rudy purrs a lot more knowing we are trying to help him with his aggressive behavior. Both Rudy and Toby can sleep together now. When Toby meows Rudy is queued to back off, just like you told him. Thank you so much for your help. The eating in the crate is also very good with Rudy. He does run out when we come by, but goes right back in again, just like you told him to. He is being very brave and I praise him for that. Thank you so much again, Sky!

Why does my animal do that?
Why won’t they stop?

I do a lot of work with people whose animals have behavior issues.

Causes of behavior issue might be:

Something you aren’t aware of

Something that has gone on for a long time, but has finally reached “crisis proportions” for your animal – or for you!

Something that happened before your animal came to you — the animal version of PTSD

For both new and long term behavior issues I’ve found the following helpful:

— determining the cause of their behavior if possible
— allowing the animal to release their feelings about their behavior issue
— helping the animal understand what alternative behavior would be better for the animal and their person
— finding out from the animal how their person can help them with the issue

By doing this, we can go a long way toward resolving the animal’s behavior issues. Please note: I cannot guarantee one hundred percent that an animal will change or moderate its behavior. Like humans, animals have free will and I cannot make them do anything.

Behaviour Success Stories

• Abby –
Abby was a cat who pee’d outside her litter box. This stopped after talking to Abby over a couple of communication sessions!

• Faegan –
Faegan was a young horse who kept pulling his feet away when his person tried to pick out his feet. This stopped after just one communication session!

• Sammy –
Sammy was a parrot who loved to be out of his cage, but would poop everywhere. After we asked Sammy to poop on paper towels instead, he was cooperative with this most of the time.

• Bear –
Bear was a very fearful dog and wouldn’t let anyone touch or pet him. Immediately after his first communication session, he jumped up on his owners chair to be petted!

• Handsome –
Handsome was an event horse who kept “calling” and endlessly fretting when his trailering buddy was led away to work. When we talked to him we asked him to stand quietly and watch for his horse buddy to return, and he did!

• Mojo –
Mojo was a cat who kept trying to “hunt” his person’s pet turtle and frog. During his communication session we told him that they were “family and not food” and said that he could watch them from six feet away. From then on that’s exactly what he did!

And I have many, many more success stories !
