Conversation with a Pet Communicator


As requested by readers to post up our experience as soon as possible, here goes.

Elaborated from our post on Pet Expo 2014...

I approached the lady from the booth, she told me that she was an animal communicator, I acted unfamiliar with the terms and politely asked her to explain the meaning of an animal communicator to me. This lady was claimed by a friend of mine to be one of the best in Singapore, this communicator is known to be friendly and do not mind helping her friends to read their dogs for free, we managed to meet this person and find out for ourselves! Though she was not very well spoken, the communicator was friendly and answered all my questions without hesitation, here's our conversation below:

Me:
May I know what is an animal communicator?

Lady:

We speak to animals and understand how they feel, we can also find out about their past life (reincarnation).

Me:
How do you do that?

Lady:

We use telepathy, a technique to read their feelings.

Me:

Telepathy......?

Lady:

Oh! You can too if you want to.
*hands out a leaflet*
You can attend our class to learn how to communicate with your pet.

Me:

Anyone can do that?

Lady:

Yes of course! Everyone can use telepathy.

Me:

*points at Amber*
So you are able to read my dog's character and talk to her?

Lady:

*looks at Amber and smile*
Yes but we don't have this service here, you can contact us at...
*hands out name card*

Me:

So what do you have now?

Lady:

We can help you to calculate if you and your dog are a good match.

Me:

*confuse look*

Lady:

*hand out a list of A4 papers with drawings we don't understand*
These are my clients, those that engaged us to see if their dogs match, to see if they suit each other.

Me:

Okay thanks, we'll give you a call if we want to engage your service.

Lady:

Oh we also have photo reading service, you can SMS or email me your dog's photo and we can read for you.

Me:

Photo? How do you do that?

Lady:

Yes, we can read your dog even through photos.

Me:

Isn't it better to read my dog now, in real life?

Lady:

*pauses for a moment*
Yes we also provide private sessions if you like.

Me:

*looks interested*
So who is the communicator, is it you?

Lady:

Yes it's me.

Me:

I might sign up for the private session, but...maybe you can roughly read my dog now? Please?

Lady:

Oh okay, hmm..
*reach down and pat Amber*
She is a guai (obedient) girl.

Me:

*Nods*

Lady:

She is very guai (obedient), but she is timid.

Me:

*continue to nod as if it was true*

Lady:

She needs to socialize more because she is very timid, but she is a guai (obedient), quiet and calm girl. She is also guai (obedient) at home. She is young, very young..

Me:

*pauses for a moment*
How old do you think she is?

Lady:

I know she is very young... I think... 1 year old? Or less..

Me:

Eh....

Lady:

Hmm.. Correct? No?

Me:

Oh yes, you are correct. How did you do that?

Lady:

I can feel her energy and sense her using telepathy, if you sign up, you can know more about your dog!

Me:

Thank you so much, we'll contact you again soon.

This was how the conversation ended.

For those who know Amber, you should understand her character is not at all like what was described. Before we spoke to the communicator, Amber was actually bored of the event and most of her energy was drained, we tied her hair and walked her for a couple of minutes so as to get her calm to participate in the photo taking session. We just happened to notice the communicator while the photo booth was on hold, at this point of time Amber had stopped rushing towards people, she was sitting still and not moving at all even when the communicator smiled at her, she was stable. As the communicator reached her hands towards Amber, she simply licked her hands a couple of times and just stared at her.

As much as I enjoyed talking to the communicator, I knew that there was nothing she could've said to impress us, I very much understood the fact that psychics who claim that they got the information through "telepathy" are actually nothing more than what the person feels when he/she sees a dog, plus random guesses of course. Amber was obviously read based on the impression she gave, she was calm and quiet at that point of time because she was simply tired, the communicator didn't know that and straight away read her through her body language and facial expression, thinking that this was her true personality and then convert words into something "psychic" when we simply acted as if we were impressed.

We'll break down into the answers we got from the communicator below:

"She is obedient"
Most of the time, Yes. This is only because we trained her since young but that is not her character. 

"She is timid"
No, if anyone had met Amber, they should know that she is one of the friendliest dog around. Amber love dogs, she loves human even more, you just need to reach your hand or call her name and Amber will run to you and give you kisses, unless she is tired of course.

"She is calm"
No. Amber is a high energy dog, she gets excited easily and has a lot of stamina for her size.

"She needs to socialize more"

Just go to our YouTube page and watch Amber's videos, she meets and socialize with different dogs almost on a daily basis, we bring her down for walks every single day and even allow her to interact with passerby and she enjoys it, so answer is No.

"She is very young, 1 year old"
Amber is almost 2.5 years old. Amber couldn't have said this to the communicator, or maybe, Amber's mathematics failed.

As you can see, out of the 5 readings this communicator made, 4 were wrong. I had expected it to be at least 50% accurate, to be frank, we went in with an opened mind even though we do not believe in dog communicators, however this is our first experience and we were pretty excited to know what they had to say about our dog. Overall we found this to be a good experience, the lady was really nice so we have no complains, we do believe there are cases whereby some people really believe that they have some sort of miracle powers, they use whatever they feel on first sight and assume this is it - for example, reading a dog's age based on feeling and size, thus these people do not even know what they are doing is wrong.

Anyway, this experience gave us better assurance in what we believe in, we as dog lovers always push our limits to learn new things, we experience, learn and move on, keeping information that are useful and putting aside those that aren't, we believe that learning things that we like and dislike will give us better knowledge in different areas and make us better at what we do. We hope you have enjoyed this post!

  1. Hi, any suggestions on how to encourage a dog to come when being called? For my dog, MOST of the time when I called out his name, he will turn to look at me. But that's it. If I call him to come, most of the time he won't. Unless I shake his treats, show it out to him then he will come. When he doesn't feels like it, he won't even response when you call his name. He will response when we say 'gai gai, mum mum' I do give him his treat every time he came when called. But there's no improvement unless the treat is shown right at his face and with a 'mum mum' at the back of the command, asking him to come.

    Also, when we're outside where there's distraction, he won't even react to his name when I called out to him. He'll be busy sniffing around which makes it hard for me to train his recall. Treats won't even help as he loses interest in it when we're out.

    Thanks in advance!

First time to Pasir Ris Farmway (Pet Farm)

04 Feb, my husband's colleague decided to get another puppy so he drove us to Pasir Ris Farmway to look for puppy since we wanted one as well. He already has a 1 year Male Yorkshire Terrier so he was looking for another breed to accompany his Yorkshire. The farm was really hard to get to if you do not drive a car, unless you don't mind calling a cab. It's in the deepest part of the road and there ain't any buses around. When we first went to the first shop at farmway 02, we met a very stuck-up pet owner. Very "hao lian(proud)" with his puppies and even said all his prices are very CNY, all ended with $xx88 which means good luck for the Chinese people. We saw a pretty red toy poodle but it was sold, so the shop owner told us to buy his other puppies instead since all his puppies are so-called "high quality". I think that shop was kinda overpriced for every puppy that he quoted. One of the pups that he was selling, poodle was just besides it, seek

How to take care of your dog before and after Spay/Neuter

Many owners, especially first timers have no idea how to take care of their dogs after spay/neuter operation, owners that do not know what to expect could easily be traumatize by the experience along with their dog. This is why we have decided to come up with a tutorial on how to take proper care of your dog during the healing process. Before deciding on spaying/neutering your dog, it is good to first read up the pros and cons of doing it, don't spay/neuter your dog just because other people do it, check it up, study about it and take some time to decide.

Vet Review - Light of Life Vet

This was a very tedious search for us, finding a good vet for Amber. I researched online for many weeks before coming to a conclusion. I called most of the "recommended vets" and asked questions regarding consultation, spay and deworming. I also wanted to see whether the staffs knew what i inquired about. I would ask them stuffs like what does the spay consist, when can i take Amber home, how old should Amber be spayed and why. Some of the staffs do not even understand what i was talking about and told me to book an appointment to ask the vet what i needed to ask, so i blacklisted those clinics. I also cancelled out vets that are overly expensive and too far for transport, i do not want to make the trip back after surgery hard for Amber. Although i usually trust the internet for reviews of good vets in Singapore, i do see some ridiculous recommendations on vets based on things like "good to chat", "funny" and i even saw a thread to recommend the vet becaus
