If you have a pet that you need to have behave in a certain way, you can appreciate the value in having a supportive or reinforcing technique handy.

Here’s an extremely useful one that you can use in lots of situations.

Speak With Pictures

We’ve already talked about communicating telepathically with your pet using any or all of your senses.

When you imagine a scenario you want to encourage, you can and should continue to use other senses, but one of the easiest and most effective ways to get a telepathic message to your pet is to use your visual sense to create pictures.

(And note that the ideas I’m giving here for vision can still apply to other senses too.)

To Encourage Positives

Typically, when we want to relay a message or suggestion, it’s something good or something we want our pet to do.

When this is the case, simply imagine in your mind’s eye what that looks like, literally.

You can experiment with doing it from your point of view, and also from your pet’s perspective.

To Discourage Negatives

When there’s something you don’t want them to do or you want them to stop doing, it gets a little trickier, but only because you have to get creative yourself.

The idea is to turn it around into what you want them to do instead, and then imagine that in your mind’s eye.

So, for example, if you don’t want your dog to go into the street, see them stopping at the sidewalk. You might even see them turning around at the sidewalk and coming back to the house. (Note I’m not saying to do this instead of training or other practical restraint measures! It’s done as an adjunct with them in situations like this.)

Or if you don’t want them to bark when someone comes to the door, what do you want them to do instead? Think about that and imagine it in every detail.

A Few Other Tips

Whenever you’re encouraging a new behavior, it’s helpful to take an extra moment to see (in your mind’s eye) your pet getting some congratulations, affection, or a treat right after they do what you want them to do. And then, when they do it, give them that! Besides reinforcing the behavior, it helps confirm to them that you were, indeed, “talking” to them.

As to senses other than visual, you can also give commands from a distance (in your mind) if your pet is already responsive to those commands. And even though “No” is a negative, if they already are responsive to that, don’t hesitate to use it especially in a dangerous situation.

As with any kind of training, it’s good to repeat the practice lots of times before it’s actually needed, or intersperse it with times when it’s needed.

An Example: Discourage then Encourage

Our boxer (God rest her sweet soul) used to be very protective of us when we were in our outdoor jacuzzi at night.

She would go off barking to all corners of our property, and it was annoying not only to us but I’m sure to the neighbors, too.

The problem was, she was getting old and losing her hearing, so even whistling for her had become futile.

So we decided to use telepathy.

We used a mixture of different techniques, but it went something like this:

1. We calmed ourselves down, so that we truly were okay instead of distressed about her barking. Otherwise she would sense anxiety from us, making her anxious or making her think we were in a distressing situation where we need her protection.

2. We made a deliberate connection by thinking her name as if she were right next to us and we were getting her attention.

3. We imagined what we wanted, which was for everything to be very quiet. I would put myself “inside” her and feel myself just being quiet and calm, i.e. not barking. (Discouragement from barking.)

4. Then we would telepathically issue the “Come” command. She was a very obedient dog, but for good measure I would then …

5. Envision her returning to where we were. I would do this either from her perspective (imagining myself, as her, coming up the hill and across the driveway) or from our perspective (seeing her come around the corner of the house toward us), or both. (Encouragement to return to the house.)

It worked! It worked immediately and repeatedly. It was amazing even to us how responsive she was, but I’m sure that was at least partly due to the fact that a few years before we had all made an agreement of sorts that we would play with communicating that way. She enjoyed it and yet this shows that she also took it seriously.

So don’t forget about all these great modes of communication you have available.

Try them out, and practice them until you see for yourself how well they work. They not only enrich your relationship, but they can be an important means of communicating in serious situation.

    I believe that dogs pick up on emotion, thought, vibration before they do anything else. What we constantly nag at them becomes meaningless. When we constantly nag at them, it’s an emotion worth ignoring so they do.

    I taught a course to professional dog trainers where I did not allow them to speak out loud to their dog for an entire day. Another section of the course on the same day taught by someone else was training a retrieve. I was amazed myself when there was soooo much success that day. It was simply that people had to rely on communicating with their body and mind and not their voice.

    Way good stuff.

    Aloha wags!

      Hi Jt, nice to see you again.

      Hey, thanks for sharing that story about your course w/the pro trainers. Very interesting! They sure are aware of even the subtlest of cues — of all kinds, aren’t they?!

      I always encourage people when they’re practicing the telepathy, to NOT move their body at all tho if they can help it. So it’s not just voice but movement as well that we want to go without. It’s a better way to practice but of course in “real life” we want to use whatever we have available.

      So cool — thanks for sharing that!

    Hi Patti

    Very interesting. I’m a newbie at animal communication but I’m having great success. I’m certainly going to try the technique of projecting me congratulating them before it happens, sounds like a good idea. Connecting with my own dogs seems harder!

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for visiting and welcome! So cool you are doing this! I love that you’re acknowledging your success, because I think trusting that is the biggest block of all, and many never get past that.

      I know what you mean about your own dogs. I think they hear us better but we have to get “out of the way” to hear them in an objective way. It can be a little tricky, for sure. If you like learning from books, Marta Williams wrote one specifically about talking with animals you already know called Ask Your Animal. It’s really good and I recommend it.

      Good luck as you move forward. Yay for the human/animal bond, and I’m grateful for people like you. :-)
