At some time or another, we’ve all wished we could talk to our animals. Tim Link, an author, writer, speaker, president and CEO of Wagging Tales, is a full-time animal communicator. A frequent talk show guest, he has been featured on “FOX & Friends,” “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” and many other shows sharing his passion for helping animals. Tim officially formed Wagging Tales in November 2007 to communicate with animals and their owners, and to perform Reiki energy healing on pets. Tim also volunteered as the past president of the Humane Society of Forsyth County – a no-kill shelter.
Can you tell us about your background and how you came to start Wagging Tales?
I grew up in Richmond, Indiana. I married my high school sweetheart, Kim, and graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in sales and marketing. After graduation, I built a successful twenty-plus year career in sales management for the telecommunications industry. In February 2004, I learned (with great surprise) that I could communicate telepathically with animals. When I made the decision to share my gift with anyone that needed help with their pets, I formed Wagging Tales. This was in November 2007.
Can you tell us about the ways you work with pet families to communicate telepathically with their pets?
When I have a consultation with pets and their families, we simply have a three-way conversation. I telepathically communicate the family’s questions to the pets, the pets communicate their answers back to me telepathically in whatever way they are comfortable (through pictures, words, feelings, thoughts, emotions, tastes or smells) and I relay this information verbally back to their family. The concerns that I help families with are usually behavioral in nature (e.g. Why is their cat not using the litter box all of a sudden?). But, I can also help with lost pets and pets that have either made their transition or are in the process of passing over.
What types of information do you need from pet owners when working long distance?
When I work remotely with a pet, I ask their family to send me a picture of their pet and the pet’s name. I usually suggest that they write down the questions that they have for their pet ahead of time so that they can take notes if they choose to. However, I don’t need their questions ahead of time.
At Wagging Tales you also work to find lost pets. Can you tell us about the process of how you work long distance to locate pets?
I use telepathic communication with the pet in conjunction with map dowsing to determine where the pet’s specific energy is in order to locate the pet. During the process, the pet shows me their surroundings, where they’ve been, tells me what may have caused them to wander away from their home and whether they can or want to come back home. Once I have this information, I pass it along to the family. They then use the information to search for their pet or, in the best cases, I communicate with the pet to get the pet to come back home on their own. A great story that was published in the newspaper and in my book is about Madison the cat. She jumped out of a fourth-story apartment window in the Bronx and was out roaming around for three weeks before returning home.
Much of the emphasis in Dogtipper.com is on adoption of shelter pets. When a person adopts a shelter pet or rescue animal, how can they best communicate a feeling of safety and belonging to their new pet?
I am the past president of my local humane society. From that experience, I learned that animals can sense your emotions. For example, if you are anxious and unsure, they will sense those feelings from you. It is very important to let them get used to their new surroundings in their own time.
It is also important to let them know that this new place is their new home until we find their right and perfect forever home. Animals are just like us in that they like to know the details about a situation and how something is going to impact them.
What else would you like the readers of DogTipper.com to know about Wagging Tales?
I am also the author of a nationally published book, Wagging Tales: Every Animal Has a Tale. In my book, I detail 32 stories about animals that I have helped through my gift as an animal communicator and Reiki energy healer. My book also contains 24 helpful tips that anyone can implement with their pet. As part of the services that I offer, I provide in-person, telephone and e-mail consultations as well as energy healing sessions for pets. Also, a portion of the proceeds from our business and the book goes back to animal rescue organizations.
