The Highly Sensitive Person Podcast

10: Animals & HSPs



I got a dog about 6 months ago--it's the first time I've ever cared for an animal in my life. It's been a fulfilling and fun experience. In Episode 10 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about how HSPs can have deep connections to animals due to our empathy and ability to pick up on non-verbal signals. Resources mentioned in the podcast: This post by Dr. Elaine Aron about what HSPs can get from animals. Related Posts on Could I handle having a dog?
