If you´re like most pet care professionals, it is highly likely that you´ve never attended a workshop or seminar on the subject of pet death and its associated grief. And, for those who perhaps have, you more than likely found the learning experience rather “academic” – in effect lacking a high degree of first hand experience with varied pet death experiences and the ever wider range of related grief experiences.

What makes Two Hearts Pet Loss Center unique is that Coleen Ellis has worked with literally thousands of families who have experienced the death of a pet – bringing that wealth of knowledge and experience to the educational and training resources she´s making available.
• The grief and guilt a blind woman had to manage because she left her gate un-latched and her service dog wandered into the street and was killed.
• The grief and anger associated with a young woman who purchased a “fashion” leash only to have it break while on a walk with her beloved little Pomeranian, and watched it be hit by a car as she went to catch her after she ran into traffic.
• The guilt and confusion a mother manages as she makes the painful decision to euthanize their very old and ill pet, and has to explain matters to her children.
• The special grief associated with a senior gentleman who lives alone, who just lost the pet that was his special companion,and an important shared connection to the spouse he´d lost not so many years before.
For pet care professionals, its more than death and grief education – it´s about pet loss companioning. Communicating you care, and helping clients move ahead, hopefully toward renewing the cycle of animal companionship through re-adoption. This is support that a great many pet parents who´ve lost a pet crave; and it becomes a powerful differentiator among pet service providers.
Two Hearts Pet Loss Center´s seminars in Pet Loss Companioning will bring to you the educational tools that you will need to know. Guidance in areas such as:
What is the difference between “treating” and “companioning”?
Why it may be important to change the “thinking philosophy” with a grieving family?
What is the difference between grieving and mourning?
What are the necessary qualities of a caregiver for a grieving family?
What are some simple yet meaningful rituals families can do to celebrate the life of their beloved pet?
What are come common memorial options that family´s desire?
What types of support and care do your families typically need from you during this very difficult time?

Honoring Your Family´s Stories
Honoring the stories of those experiencing the loss of a precious pet is a privilege. For many pet parents, they will grieve and mourn in silence as they face this devastating loss of an unconditional love.
As Coleen works with families across the United States, these grieving hearts seem to be hungry for words that will bring them peace of mind.

“Attending Coleen’s Pet Loss & Grief Companioning Certification course is a MUST for anyone in our industry. Her topics and discussions are invigorating and the group provides an amazing networking opportunity. This course has given me the tools to enhance my skills and provide “above and beyond” support to my pet families. I plan on repeating the course periodically to energize myself so I don’t lose sight of what my purpose is for my pet families.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your certification course on Pet Loss and Grief Companioning. It was wonderful to have my feelings as a pet parent that has lost a pet, and as a veterinarian that is dedicated to helping pet parents through the process of in home euthanasia, validated. Understanding the grief process, and how to better companion pet parents in their grief will make me more effective at what I do, and learning your marketing ideas will make me more effective in my mission to make all pet owners aware of home euthanasia as an alternative to in-clinic euthanasia. I highly recommend this course to ALL pet professionals, as I feel it is easy to be there for the cute kitten/puppy days, but being there when the road is tough is what will set you apart from your competitors, and will give your life’s work great purpose and meaning.”

“Coleen’s class was fantastic! I have attended many seminars in my life but nothing compared to this one. She inspires and never “expires” with her enthusiasm. It is contagious. I feel I now will be able to help so many with the death of their pet. Please take the course when it is offered to you. Not only will it help you to help others heal. It will do the same for you.”
