If you are an intuitive and empathetic person with respect and love for all living creatures, you're already on the road to becoming an animal communicator. People who have mastered these skills don't waste their time on scoffers; they are too busy helping animals and humans adjust to each other's needs and lead happier lives. Animal communicators believe all people are born with the ability to connect psychically with other creatures; it's only as we mature and are taught to distrust our instincts that we lose touch.
Think about your reasons for wanting to learn animal communication. Do you simply want to bond with the animal companion in your life, or do you want to become a professional and assist veterinarians, wildlife rescuers and other animal professionals? Your goals will help guide you to the correct seminar or training program.

Locate an animal communicator in your geographical area. If there are no animal communicators nearby and you cannot travel to a workshop, consider online and distance-learning options. Ideally, you will find a teacher whose work and philosophy especially attract you.
Take an introductory workshop. You will learn exercises that will help you to relax your conscious mind and achieve telepathic contact with other species. Introductory workshops often include hands-on practice.
Spend some time around animals each day to practice the skills you have been taught.
Take at least one additional course to find out whether you wish to pursue animal communication as a career. Many trainers and institutes offer advanced workshops in sub-specialties such as human/animal conflict resolution, working with ailing or rescue animals and death and dying issues at both basic and advanced levels.
Enroll in an animal communication institute that offers extensive, in-depth courses and an internship or practicum, if you wish to pursue animal communication as a certified professional.
