    What Your Pet Can Teach You--Featuring "Pet Grief Coach" Judy Helm Wright

    in Pets

    www.deathofmypet.com  


    As pet owners we are often concerned about what and how we can train our pets.  But the truth is that pets often teach us.  As a parent educator (and pet grief coach) I use animals to teach families how to relate to one another in daily life.


    Today's show will be about some of the life skills we can learn from animals.  Here are just some we will discuss;



    To have unconditional love for others.
    To be non-judgemental about race, gender, religion or nationality
    To protect our loved ones
    To be aware of other's feelings and show empathy and comfort
    To show loyalty for family
    To trust your instincts
    To live in the moment--don't hold grudges
    To keep our needs simple
    To hide a little something away for a rainy day
    To include excercise and naps in everyday.


    You are invited to call in during the show or to leave comments that may be used in an up-coming book on Animal-Human Connection. Thanks for being part of our community of kind, thoughtful people who want respect for all.  

    Judy Helm Wright, Pet Grief Coach and author of "I Lost My Best Friend Today--Dealing With The Loss of a Beloved Pet."


    PS:  If you have a pet story to share please send it to judy@deathofmypet.com  and be sure to put PET STORY in the subject line.  You may be featured in an upcoming book.
