    Topic #1

    Take a Chill Pill: Your emotions are making your furbabies sick

    Studies prove that our bonded animal companions can smell and feel our emotions. So when we let them (negative emotions) get the best of us, and we live in a state of fight or flight, not only are we creating disease in our bodies but also in theirs.

    Value add for the audience
    Audiences will grasp the impact they have on their animal companion's health and they will be inspired & empowered to make personal changes so everyone in the home can thrive.

    Topic #2

    PAWsitive Communication: To get you through the rough stuff

    How we speak to, and about our animals can support them in healing their grief, trauma, separation anxiety, and behavioral issues.

    Value add for the audience
    Attendees will understand that you don't need to be a 'woo woo' pet psychic to speak to your animals! Through simple steps and practices, you'll learn to communicate to help animals through events like 4th of July Fireworks, rescue/adoption, loss of a companion, separation anxiety, and when families kennel for travel.

    Topic #3

    Death and Grieving: How to speak with people who have lost a beloved furbaby

    Death is a difficult topic for most people. What do we say? What do we do to help the person grieving? Our loss of words can cause us not to have any. Or worse, the wrong thing can be said like "You can get another". These flawed moments can cause so much pain for the person experiencing the loss that they end up feeling isolated and aren't able to process the grief they're experiencing in their hearts.

    Value add for the audience
    Mastering conversation around grief and how to truly support someone when their furbaby has died.
