Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Rules of Engagement.
Remember to be courteous and kind, to treat others as you would like to be treated. Rudeness, blatant disrespect, or intolerance is never allowed and could be grounds to kick you to the curb and out of the Club.
We are here to learn together. We all make mistakes occasionally - that's a good thing! It provides an opportunity to correct, adjust and discover what we didn't know.
No adult content or porn (even animal porn) is ever allowed. Please don't try to sell us stuff. You can share something cool you found, but we are not here to be marketed to.

Information is not intended to replace the advice of a qualified pet health care professional and is not intended as medical advice. We encourage you to make your own pet health care decisions.
The Club is intended as a safe place to share knowledge and information, and our love of animals.
Your information is private! We will never ever sell or share your information with any third party or subject you to nasty spam which we hate probably even more than you do.

The Animal Communication Code of Ethics
These are the Values We Cherish for Interspecies Empathic Communicators Originally formulated in 1990 by Penelope Smith, and adhered to by Val Heart and the Heart School Community.
Our sole motivation is compassion for all beings and a desire to help all creatures understand each other better.
We honor those that come to us for help, not judging, condemning, or invalidating them for their mistakes or misunderstanding but honoring their desire for change and harmony. We know that to keep this work as pure and harmonious as possible requires that we continually grow spiritually.
We realize that empathic communication can be clouded or overlaid by our own unfulfilled emotions, critical judgments, or lack of love for self and others.
We walk in humility, willing to recognize and clear up our own errors in understanding others' communication (human and non-human alike). We cultivate knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of human, non-human, and interspecies behavior and relationships, to increase the good results of our work.
We get whatever education and/or personal help we need to do our work effectively, with compassion, respect, joy, and harmony.
We seek to draw out the best in everyone and increase understanding toward mutual resolution of problems. We go only where we are asked to help, so that others are receptive and we truly can help.
We respect the feelings and ideas of others and work for interspecies understanding, not pitting one side against another but walking with compassion for all.
We acknowledge the things that we cannot change and continue where our work can be most effective.
We respect the privacy of people and animal companions we work with, and honor their desire for confidentiality. While doing our best to help, we allow others their own dignity and help them to help their animal companions.
We cultivate understanding and ability in others, rather than dependence on our ability. We offer people ways to be involved in understanding and growth with their fellow beings of other species. We acknowledge our limitations, seeking help from other professionals as needed.
It is not our job to name and treat diseases, and we refer people to veterinarians for diagnosis of physical illness. We may relay animals' ideas, feelings, pains, symptoms, as they describe them or as we feel or perceive them, and this may be helpful to veterinary health professionals.
We may also assist through handling of stresses, counseling, and other gentle healing methods. We let clients decide for themselves how to work with healing their animal companions' distress, disease, or injury, given all the information available.
The goal of any consultation, lecture, workshop, or interspecies experience is more communication, balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings. We follow our heart, honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One.
Here’s what else you need to know about your recurring membership program subscription.
Please read these terms carefully as they are a binding legal contract. We suggest downloading a copy for your records. (click here to download a PDF of this page for your records)
You are purchasing a month-to-month, recurring monthly membership subscription at one of the following Club levels: silver, gold, or platinum.

In all instances, you are purchasing one seat license to participate in live programming, access the Club materials, and in the group with fellow members.
Fees and term:
Your monthly fee is billed on a recurring basis every thirty days until you cancel. Annual fees are billed on a recurring basis every 365 days until you cancel. Your access will continue through the end of the current billing cycle. Access to programs inside the membership will be discontinued if the membership is cancelled. You may cancel by calling 805-PET-TALK or by emailing [email protected] at least three business days prior to the next billing.
You specifically authorize us to charge your card on file on a recurring basis for this purpose.
On occasion, we may offer a free or reduced fee trial. In exchange for access to the platform and content and events during the trial period, you agree that at the end of the trial period, if you do not continue your subscription by paying a monthly fee, your account and access to content will be revoked and deleted.
Trials vary. You will be notified on the sign up page the length and cost of the trial, and other relevant terms. Although not specifically listed, the sign up page details are deemed incorporated herein by reference as if fully set forth.
Only one trial is allowed per person. If you have already had a trial period, then cancel before billing and then come back, you will pay for access at that time.
