Birthday Edition

Today's Pawsome Human: Joan Ranquet - Nurturing Wellness With Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for Animals

First birthday without Good Boy Cai

Good Boy Cai

It’s been just over a month, and we’re settling into life just with the girls.

But today is my birthday, and it falls on a Sunday .. the perfect reason to take it easy .. heading out for sushi, followed by a delightfully long siesta and generally taking it easy.

And suddenly, there is a memory of Cai.

Funny how the waves of grief come and go. I miss my boy, and I feel him close - sad and at peace at the same time.

If you’ve lost a dog, you know the bitter-sweet feeling…

If you’ve missed "Creating Calmer Walks with your ‘Reactive’ Dog" with Miranda Wimbush ..

Miranda is a Certified Professional Dog trainer, Family Dog Mediator and Veterinary Technician. She is also trained in Transformational Life Leadership Coaching as well as Reiki and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and is currently a HeartMath Certified Mentor.

This week’s Pawsome Human: Joan Ranquet - Nurturing Wellness With Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for Animals

I learned about EFT many years ago but had no idea it also worked on animals.

If you know EFT you’ll love this episode, if you’ve never heard of it, you’re in for a lovely surprise, about to discover a beautifully simple and effective way to process emotions and heal.

In this episode, animal communicator and author, Joan Ranquette joins us from Santa Clarita, California, to share her journey and work with animals, particularly her application of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to help them overcome emotional and behavioral issues. 

Joan shares her path from aspiring actress and veterinarian to becoming an animal communicator, her early experiences with animals, and the transformative moment that led her to work with animals full-time. 

She explains the principles of EFT, how she adapted it for animals, and recounts a powerful story about using EFT to change a horse's aggressive behavior towards ponies by addressing underlying traumas. 

Joan emphasizes the simplicity and effectiveness of EFT in treating various issues such as separation anxiety and reactivity in animals, and advocates for pet owners to apply EFT, guiding them with investigative questions to pinpoint issues for a more targeted approach.

We touch on the impact of traditional Chinese medicine principles on EFT, the importance of hitting the correct emotional triggers for effective treatment, and Joan's educational offerings for those interested in learning more about animal communication and EFT.

Coming up in June

The PAC Summer Auction - plenty of great items (more being added all the time) to support dog professionals with a kindness-first approach.

I had no idea - until I met Annie Phenix, founder of PAC (Phenix Advocacy Center) - that the burnout rate amongst dog professionals is huge.

And supporting dog professionals who are out to help dogs and their people is such a great way to make a difference, so I’m involved :-)

I’ll donate a 90-minute Business Strategy session for dog professionals, and a Soul Touched by Dogs t-shirt.

Stay tuned for more news.

Are you a canine professional?

A trainer, coach, behaviorist, nutritionist, holistic vet, or other canine expert with a holistic approach?

Would you like to be a guest on the podcast? Do you know someone you think would make a great guest? Could you use some help expanding your canine business through online events and programs?

If it doesn’t come in your size, let me know. I do work with another supplier so we can find an option that works for you.
