Pet Talk
...talking with animals
The homing pigeon who came back to say thank you ...she was exhausted and collapsed in a car park hundreds of miles from home, and was fed and watered and brought back to health by a very kind person until she was well enough to fly on her way again.  But twice over a period of weeks she returned to the person who had tended her ... flying directly into the lounge and landing on the piano keyboard. There was no doubt of the message of thanks she brought with her!

Mrs Doolittle?  An Article in Fifty-Fifty Magazine

Most of us will be sceptical about this... but Anna says she can actually communicate with animals.

To put it to the test we asked her to communicate with Prima, a three year old aggressive dog, which had already bitten two people and attacked a number of other dogs whilst out walking. Anna hadn't met the owners or the dog but she was sent a picture of Prima. She asked for the picture to show the dog looking into the camera. The owners have requested that we keep this article anonymous however they have agreed to allow their details to be available on request. We set up a conference call and during the course of the hour long conversation Prima was lying on the floor at home next to her owners with her eyes closed.

During the course of an hour Anna identified a number of indisputable facts. Here is part of the transcript of the conversation: “The first thing she says is that she loves you (her owners) both very much. Prima says that she can't really help her behaviour and that she'll never be able to help it. It's just her nature and she finds it impossible to change. She loves you to death, literally and in doing so she will attack anyone in her effort to try and protect you.  Prima said that one of you is particularly vulnerable, not the one with the short hair, and that he needs her protection the most. That's why she attacks.  "I'm bigger and stronger than him.  I can protect him. I can be a shield for him. I will always protect him and I will always do it in the same way”. 

Anna got a feeling from Prima that the owner had been bullied in some way in the past.”

Anna then advised that he is the one who needs to work with Prima as she is frightened for his safety.  Amazingly Anna then told them about the physical problems that the dog has.  “I did a body scan on her.  She said that when people touch her on the shoulder, she gets angry.  Her shoulders seem sensitive. The right shoulder in particular has been painful in the past.  Someone who was lefthanded struck her on the right shoulder not hard but with a bad feeling and the memory of that remains.  There was some feeling that this sensitivity may be psychological.”

One of the owners is left handed and later recalled an incident of two years ago when he did strike on her right shoulder, in anger, to break up a fight with another dog. He thought Prima was holding onto the other dog's snout with her teeth. In fact it was the other dog that had Prima's snout gripped in its jaws and a fang has pierced Prima's lip. The owner had not struck Prima hard, more of a slap, but repeated it three times before realising the mistake.

Anna also identified that the dog has pain in its right paw. The owners later confirmed that Prima had limped for a while after she jumped from a high ledge and sprained her right paw. Prima now always sits with her right leg slightly raised. Regarding the shoulder problem the owners had been told a month before by a traditional vet that Prima has a sensitivity issue with her shoulders.  “She also wants to express her love, gratitude and appreciation for you both. She spoke of becoming part of the 'team' with the humans.  She felt she was more in tune with humans than her dog companion. They have another dog which presents no problems. Anna then advised the owners not to use negative language apart from a simple “No”. She says dogs can not understand “don't” or “mustn't”. Saying “Don't bite” in fact means “Bite” to the animal ear.

The session closed and two weeks later we returned for a verdict from the owners: “There has been a definite change in Prima's behaviour. She seems to be bonding with us a bit more and has not been as aggressive to others. It's almost as if she has become a bit more aware of the trouble she was causing. A close friend has commented that she is like a different dog. I really don't know if Anna can actually talk to animals but she definitely did something at an emotional level with Prima.

Anna has been interviewed by Radio London about her work in the field of animal communication, and has had several articles printed. 

She is currently writing a book about animal communication and the love and death of our compassionate pets

Reviews of London Workshops

    Many people who share their lives with animals wonder whether they know how much they love them. When a pet has passed over I am often asked that question.

 In my workshops I will explain ways of communicating with our loved ones during their lifetimes so that we can get used to the sound of their voices. I will show you how to communicate with them regularly so that they are in no doubt that they are loved, and when they have passed over you will have no need to ask the question ..

“Did they know how much I loved them?”

“I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for this weekend. It was such a wonderful experience in so many ways. You are truly a gift to the world and I feel privileged to know you.

I learned so much about Animal Communication and also so much about myself. There was a lot to take in and I realise that practice and experience are key.

Ned is super chilled since he got home and has being wanting to talk to me since I got back. I think he wants to say thank you for today.”

Lisa, Chiswick

 "I have to tell you just how my relationship with Kai has changed, so much since you talked about celebrating our animals at the communication workshop. When I am not feeling to good he hangs around me and always makes sure he is in the same room as me, usually in my office. Where he is now! It has made such an amazing difference to the way we interact. Thank you"

Dennis Clarke, Teddington

“Anna is a very sensitive person and  her way of transmitting her knowledge 

is so straightforward and accessible to everybody ! Her workshop has been an 

amazing experience to me, I have had fun,  I have felt very emotionally 

involved and most important: now I know that I CAN communicate with animals ! I 

would highly recommend Anna’s workshop to anyone !” 

Paola Simonelli,  Italy

“I found the workshops both enjoyable and eye-opening.  Everyone was made to feel 

welcome and I found the small group size made the learning an intimate and friendly 

experience where everyone was given the opportunity to participate as much or as little as 

they wished.  I found Annaʼs style of teaching warm and engaging.  I felt she had a real gift 

for making animal communication immediate and accessible. 

The range of learning opportunities was varied and clearly a lot of thought and sensitivity 

had gone into choosing which animals we should work with.  They gave a real sense of the 

range of situations, both happy and sad, where animal communication can provide helpful 

insights into what animals are thinking and feeling.  I found communicating with the 

dog on Sunday morning particularly moving and poignant. 

Overall, I found the weekend enlightening and empowering and would definitely be 

interested in attending further workshops in the future. 

Thank you for such a unique and precious experience. “

September 2014:  I had this wonderful feedback from one of my happy customers!

Reproduced here in full with Penny’s permission.  Mina and Newt are her cats.

Dear Anna,

Your talk with Mina/Squeaps had astounding effects.  Overnight she stopped catching small birds and doesn't even catch many big birds now.  What happened the morning after your talk with her was quite funny.  I went to the window to see whether the birds were still eating as I keep her in if they are.  There was one lone elderly Jackdaw on the feeding station.  Squeaps jumped up next to me to look out, which she doesn't usually do.  She saw the "big bird" and looked up at me and started yip, yip, yipping.  It was so obvious that she was saying "It's a big bird so I can go out hunting".  I laughed and said "That old fellow?  That's no challenge at all."

The few that she has caught since then have been Wood Pigeons, just as we'd suggested as a compromise.  When Kev spoke to one of the neighbours who always comments on how many birds Squeaps has been seen with, the only comment was that she'd seen Squeaps carrying a large rat.  Of course, they don't mind her catching rats.

I, on the other hand, was not so happy as there are several places near here where they probably put rat poison down.  I explained that to Squeaps as best I could and told her not to eat any rat that seemed sick or was already dead .  Today I found a whole, uneaten rat in our tiny, fairly private, garden (not in the public, communal garden).

Squeaps and Newt are getting on much better too.  He obviously overheard her couch potato remark as he became more active and started going out with her.  They now play tag through the flat and one day they even went hunting together and I caught the two of them playing with a poor frightened mouse.  I distracted them and told the mouse to get away quickly.  It did :D

Oh, on last thing - she doesn't wear a collar any more!  We decided that as she hated it so much, and as she had been cooperative and stopped catching the smaller birds, there didn't seem any point making her wear it.  She seems much happier without it.

Thanks so much for your help, the results really have been amazing,



I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for this weekend. It was

such a wonderful experience in so many ways. You are truly a gift to

the world and I feel privileged to know you. Lisa H. Chiswick
