I am a biologist with 30 years’ experience as a positive, science-based pet trainer and behavior consultant. I’m also an intuitive psychic medium. I incorporate intuition into my behavior work with animals and people. Science and soul can and do beautifully coexist. I embody that in my life and work.
In 1997, I opened my practice as a pioneering positive, science-based pet trainer in Sonoma County, California. In 2021, I expanded my practice to include work as a professional psychic medium and animal communicator. I now incorporate both behavioral science and intuition into my work with humans and animals.
Specifically, I am an Intuitive Pet & Life Guide. IPLG™ is a field-within-my-field that I created to fill a much-needed niche. It blends my pet training and behavior consulting expertise with my intuitive gifts. In my work, animals, humans, and their shared bonds are equally respected, heard, and nurtured. Humans who are intuitively open will especially love this process. Skeptical folks, fear not: I’m happy to simply scientifically and logically train your pet with you. The synergy of science and soul benefits all sentients — pets and bipeds, alike.
I’m fascinated and inspired by the bonds we share with our pets.
I explore the powers of intuition, intention, empathy, mindfulness, mirroring, and compassion as healing/teaching growth gateways for humans and their pets, via their bonds.
I walk in the worlds of science and intuition daily, in my personal life and my work. I embody the synergy of science and soul. I am better for that integration, and I’m better at all that I do because of it. I bring all of me to all I do, and I can’t imagine living any other way.
In August 2022, I published my book, Intuitive Evolution. It’s filled with relatable stories and practical lessons from my life journey — all designed to help you develop your own intuition. We’re all intuitive. We have a natural connection to each other, our pets, and a loving universal energy greater than ourselves. Realizing, trusting, and developing intuition can enrich your life.
So much to explore! Join me, won’t you? — Ruth Hagen
