Ute and her animals
Ute Luppertz, M.A.is a holistic healing coach for pets. She is well known for her many years of experience working with senior and special needs pets. She is a Reiki Master and a Tellington TTouch practitioner.
She studied positive reinforcement dog training "The Third Way" by Chris Bach and is trained in the Systemic Constellation method which is based on Bert Hellinger's work.
Ute's consultations include training for pet guardians, wellness support, healing work and animal communication. She works with cats, dogs and horses. Ute also facilitates animal death doula trainings for animal caretakers and professionals.
For many years she has been involved with animal rescue, rehabilitation and hospice care. Ute has developed the PEACEFUL PAWS PROGRAM for pets and their humans.
Ute is a member of the International TTouch Guild and a member of the Northwest Association for Death Education and Bereavement Support.
She lives with two dogs, three cats and a flight impaired little parrot in Portland, Oregon.
When Ute adopted her companion Shiva, a pit bull from a kill shelter many years ago where he was on the euthanasia list, they embarked upon an extraordinary adventure of healing and redemption.
During their precious time together she accompanied Shiva on his journey from utter hopelessness to recovery from trauma.
Gentle soul Shiva- the abused former bait dog - became a tail wagging ambassador for the nearly impossible: love, healing and joy! He became also well known for his endless supply of tender kisses.
Shiva was Ute's greatest teacher and lead the way to the amazing work that she is privileged to share with others. He passed away on August 23, 2007.
