Animal Communicator, Dr. Kim Ogden, Follows Her Intuitive Guidance to Help Animals in Need

In-depth interview with animal communicator and author, Dr. Kim Ogden, explores new research on the psychic link between humans and dogs that know when their owners are coming home -- and how she handles those who are skeptical of animal communicators.

Del Mar, CA, October 31, 2007 --( Join host Alex Tsakiris when he interviews animal communicator and author Dr. Kim Ogden-Avrutik. During the 40-minute interview Ogden-Avrutik examines why so many are resistant to investigating whether telepathic communication between humans and animals is possible:

“I do believe it is the way we are ‘fashioned’, and I use that word carefully. We are educated and fashioned in our society to negate any kind of intuitive guidance we get.”

Dr. Ogden-Avrutik also recounts her personal journey from university professional to animal communicator and her interest in animal communication research.

Dr. Kim is part of a group of researchers at interested in replicating the “dogs that know” research of Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. This research examines whether dogs can telepathically anticipate when their owner’s are coming home. Despite overwhelming scientific and anecdotal evidence that this phenomena exists, many scientists remain skeptical. Dr. Kim and her team hope to blunt this skepticism with their new findings.
