If your cat or dog is acting up, you may be the problem, according to animal communicator Terri Steuben. In her new book, "Secrets of a Pet Whisperer: Stop Telling Your Animals to Misbehave", Steuben describes how people typically give their pets mixed messages and actually encourage behaviour problems.
Steuben’s book, due to published on Monday, January 9, is a how-to guide for pet owners who want to more effectively communicate with their dogs, cats, birds and other animals. It is full of tips on what to say and do to eliminate bad behaviours like jumping, scratching and barking.
Steuben also provides communication advice for both everyday situations, such as leaving for work or going for a walk, and special circumstances, like moving or taking your pets on vacation.
She describes communication concerns at the various stages of an animal’s life. Plus, Steuben gives specific instructions on how to prepare for an emergency and help your pets survive a disaster, important information she’s learned from her experiences working with animals in disaster situations like Hurricane Katrina and wildfires in California.
Steuben developed her successful animal communication technique, called “Talking Pictures,” consulting with thousands of clients around the world for more than two decades. Her approach involves saying the right words while picturing the right behaviour in your mind. Mental pictures are effective, she says, because animals are telepathic, they hear your words, but also discern what you are thinking.
Pre-release reviewers have commented on how easy Steuben’s book is to understand and apply. It includes a chart on the words and commands to avoid when talking to you pets, and exactly what to say and picture instead.
This book is currently available for purchase at www.TerriSteuben.com.
