  • Episode 3: When Your Pet Crosses The Rainbow Bridge - Part 2

    7 APR 2024 · EPISODE 3 SHOW NOTES Episode 3:  Helping Parents Support Their Children Through Pet Loss   This is my Part Two episode with Tammy Wynn, founder and CEO of Cincinnati based pet hospice, Angel’s Paws. In Part Two, we talked about supporting your pet, yourself and others through pet loss, on the journey to and past the Rainbow Bridge. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to listen to that episode (Episode 2).   In this episode, our focus is on pet loss through the perspective of parents who share a life with human and non-human kids. Tammy and Joel Altman co-authored a beautiful book Gaining Wings, that helps families with kids deal with the grief of losing a pet over the Rainbow Bridge. In the book, pages are compassionately mixed with explaining love and loss through a story for kids, and well thought out tips for parents. In a very gentle way, this book normalizes loss and grief, and reminds families to cherish the experiences and love shared. There are suggestions for creating a bucket list of activities to maximize families’ remaining time with their pet, and preplanning ways to celebrate their pet so as not to forget.  Some of the points that will be covered in this discussion include: Why you should put on your own oxygen mask as a first step An explanation of a child’s perspective on pet loss How to talk to your child about pet loss How you can involve your child in the process of saying good-bye For more information about Angel’s Paws, please visit http://www.AngelsPaws.com To purchase the book, Gaining Wings, please visit http://www.GainingWings.com For information on your host, Lisa Desatnik, please visit http://www.SoMuchPETential.com.

  • Episode 1: Meet Lisa Desatnik, your host of Lives Touched By Pets.

    19 MAR 2024 · I have always had a heart for nonhuman animals. It was about 24 years ago when I began studying behavior because of a problem that I had with my own pet. I was really fortunate at the time to have found Dr. Susan Friedmann, who then had a listserv for parent owners around the world, teaching people how to solve issues using ABA or Applied behavior Analysis with their own pets. I'll tell you what, it opened my heart. It opened a floodgate of curiosity, and I have not stopped learning ever since then. I first began writing about behavior, and I kept studying and studying and gradually, with more knowledge, I started earning certifications. I then went full-time into training, and now I do a lot of both consultations and training for manners and helping puppies to succeed, and also working with families that have some pretty difficult and challenging behavior issues with their pets. It's really rewarding.
