As humans we tend to think of our pets' emotional maturity and intelligence level as being the same as our children's, but animals actually can be considered our soul peers, with the same wide range of maturity as adult humans. If we lock our pets into a stereotypical behavior model (a dog is just a dog, a cat is just a cat) it can be a great disservice, setting them up for failure in trying to solve any behavioral issues.
Everyone recognizes unique personality traits within their pets, especially the way they play with us and respond to our love. Pets from the same litter will all have very different personalities, varying from the extravert, to the introvert, the comedian, the caretaker, the instigators, the shy one who is the last to venture off unto the world from the mother. All these personalities can only be explained by emotional intelligence. In a recent published article Dr. Meghan E. Herron, a veterinarian who runs the Behavioral Medicine Clinic at Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine was quoted " animals feel emotions the same way humans do — their limbic system, which controls feelings such as anger, fear and pleasure, is very similar to ours."
Amazingly, behavior issues aren't a matter of being a "bad pet." Animal Healings has successfully handled cases, often uncovering that the pets just didn't understand their behavior was unacceptable to their human. Sometimes it was simply a miscommunication or misperception between the pet and pet parent. The Williams begin by first never making assumptions (what communicators call removing filters) and then learning what the pet's motivation behind the behavior might be. Then, using a counseling-style approach, they negotiate better choices for your pet.
Understanding your pet and what is driving the behavior bridges the gap between non-personal behavior modification and their unique needs, which strengthens your bond with your pet, and reduces frustration. One pet was willing to change his aggressive, protective behavior when he learned that he was scaring his human by his barking and jumping up on people. He simply didn't understand his large size was so overwhelming to everyone. He was just trying to make everyone happy, a total miscommunication and misunderstanding that was solved in one session.
Not every situation is that easy, but every session begins with love and understanding, the simple key to getting through to every pet's heart, soul and mind.
