The Raidho Canine Way™
"When we listen to our animal's perspective it changes our lives in magical ways." - Kim Howatt
Welcome to Raidho Canine
My name is Kim - I'm  an Animal Wisdom Alchemist
As the owner of Raidho Canine, I am stoked that you found your way to this space, and I am so excited to meet you and to work together!

Are you thinking. What in the heck is an Animal Wisdom Alchemist?

Gosh, So happy that you asked, LoL!

Through my years as an animal communicator, certain insights have become very clear. It's great that the animals share their story, their perspective, and their desires, but it doesn't always ease the disconnect that tends to occur when the humans expect life to unfold in one way and the animals appear to have a different agenda. At times, it's like fitting a round peg into a square hole.

My role has grown beyond that of animal communicator and into one of listener and guide. The wisdom and insight received from chatting with the animals is only part of the story. It's jst as important to listen to the story of the humans. Then we put the puzzle together as a team.

(This is the alchemy part)

Alchemy: The process of turning lead into gold.

The steps of The Raidho Canine Way™ are always the same: 

  • Listen to the animal through animal communication
  • Listen to the human questions and concerns
  • Respect the relationship by receiving consent from the animal

  • Come together for a meeting
  • Discuss wisdom and insights gained through our conversations
  • Create an action plan with options

  • Put the plan into action, noting the details of what changes
  • Assess and Adjust the plan through future sessions
  • Discover how magical life together with your animals can become

While the steps are the same, every relationship is unique. No two pathways will look the same.

Let's work together.
Raidho Canine Origins
My life as an adult has led me through darkness and into light.

Raidho Canine's programs and services have been created as a result of deep, personal experience as well as   years of education and ongoing studies.

The Raidho Canine Way™ is the result of  life's lessons and life's calling.

From personal health challenges to  canine health and behavior challenges, I was searching endlessly for someone to fix us. I did not realize that I have known that person for my entire life, and she was me.... and we did NOT need fixing.

It hasn't always been pretty, and it will never be perfect. Our personal life with our dogs has transformed from daily challenges, struggles, and guilts into a harmonious and playful way of being together. Creating a "dog business" was never on my radar as a young adult.  Olympic gold medals and visiting Mars or the moon was what filled dreamtime at night. Working towards these goals led me to play softball and study Theoretical Computer Science at Northern Illinois University.

Marriage to my best friend and a career in software were the driving force for the next years. Life was fulfilling and fun with our family of four-legged canine companions. I honestly never dreamed of anything besides relaxation and retirement, until the challenges with our dog Jango began to create a mountain of doubt and stress. I was spending much of my time fighting chronic ailments, and Jango came into our life challenged by chronic ailments.

The universe has a funny way of showing us it's time to change.  For me it was NOT subtle messaging!

I am driven by details and the belief that anything is possible. We do not need to accept and endure... we can find our freedom through honesty, courage, and a belief that our experiences serve to guide us to our greatest potential.

Working side-by-side with animals tugged and pulled at me until I said yes to the change in career. I tried for a long time to keep it as merely a hobby. This career change has saved me and shown me what is truly important (and possible) in my life. Funny thing is this current life feels as if it has always been my life.

I am an Animal Wisdom Alchemist, and my role is to be the conduit for connection to your furry companions.  Both the human and the animal perspective is vital in understanding where relationships are disconnected. By listening to all sides of a story, we are able to heal misunderstandings and ignite incredible partnerships.

I am an Animal Wisdom Alchemist, and I love to empower people and their canine companions to ease behavioral misunderstandings, heal challenged relationships, ease end-of-life transitions, and inspire all parties as they find their way forward as incredible partners together. The Raidho Canine Way™ has proven effective time and again.

You changed our relationship and our lives.

I was struggling to communicate with my extremely fearful rescue dog and feeling very guilty about our relationship. I just didn't feel like I really understood her or who she truly was.

Helping us to communicate on the same level improved our relationship 100%. Having a better understanding of who my girl really is and how she sees the world changed how I look at her. We have the tools to keep moving forward. Thank you for opening my eyes, my mind and my heart so I could see, hear and feel all her magic and love her honestly knowing that she is truly happy and secure.

This was an amazing and magical experience. Our life together has changed so much.  The Wisdom all the dogs shared with us, it was amazing!✨️

So simple yet so profound.

And last but not least....... Thank you Kim for being the dogs channel, enabling them(probably for the first time)to speak up, share their wishes and thoughts but especially for them to be able to share their incredible Wisdom. You have given all of us a beautiful gift.

This was for me, until now, the most incredible adventure I have had together with my dogs 💞✨️🙏💃💞

I'm so glad I signed up for the Dog Guided Approach adventure.   I had the time of my life and was blown away with the unique approach of having the dogs guide us through the six sessions.  They had so much to share, and I hadn't realized how much I could learn from them.  I have a much stronger connection with all my dogs now.  I worry less and look forward to our special time in the secret garden.  Kim did a fantastic job facilitating and I can't wait for the next adventure.

Kim has recently had conversations with 5 of our girls… wow, such incredibly profound messages from all of them.  I could really feel the nature of their exchanges. The communications give me such a deeper perspective of who I’m spending my life with! Since I’ve read (and re-read, and re-re-read 😉) the communications, something deep has been changing in them, in me and in our relationships, in very practical ways too. 

Thank you Kim, from the bottom of our hearts, for opening up that new space for us as a family.

When I contacted Kim for communication with Donny, it was because I wanted Donny to have someone he could trust to have a conversation with. To enjoy sharing his stories, knowing that Kim would facilitate the safe space for him to do so.

And sure enough when Kim sent me her beautifully typed up transcript of the conversation Donny had with her, it was filled with memories of the things Donny used to love doing. Reading and recalling those times truly lifted me up too. It was a wonderful way to remind me to not just focus on the care-taking aspects of Donny day-to-day but to make space and time to listen to Donny share his favourite memories with me.

Kim’s services and animal communication with my new pup Emmie simply blew me away.

The sessions provide a generous level of detail and insight and went above and beyond anything I was expecting. Her connection with Emmie was clear and spot on and addressed a specific concern I was having around crate training by offering me the pup’s point of view. She works with you the owner and your pet to create more ease and harmony in the relationship.

I cannot recommend her more highly!

Kim has a wonderful way of creating the space for people and animals to feel safe, heard and understood. With her open–hearted and intuitive style, combined with a lovely sense of humor, she effortlessly bridges the communication gap between animals and their people, allowing a deeper understanding and connection to flow between them – what a wonderful gift this is!

She gives dogs a voice, allowing them to share their own personal message for us.

Thank you so much for this beautiful communication with Noura!

When I had seen a photo of Noura and knew she was coming to live with me I started looking for a new name for her. I also looked at the meaning of the names and Noura was the first but also the only name that felt right for me. It means “Inner Light” It made me cry when I read what she said about her purpose here and listening to her song  Isn’t she something!

Raidho Canine History
How Raidho Canine Came into Being
Rune Raidho
 Years ago, on our first adventure to Europe, we chose to go on a Scandinavian tour. Jim and I fell in love with the people, the places we visited, and the history & the mythology. Fast forward quite a few years into the future.

My life completely changed when I retired from my IT career to embark on a new journey. I was a week away from my last day as a programmer, and Jim gifted me a bracelet with 3 rune symbols of Elder Futhark. One of the 3 symbols was the rune Raidho. The first moment I began reading about the beautiful meaning of this rune was the moment that Raidho Canine was born.

This quote from Maginrose sums Raidho up beautifully.

“Raidho governs the motion of the stars and the dance of the universe. Closer to home it is the road: the simple act of putting one step in front of another. Not sure where to find it? Listen to your heart beat. Raidho brings alignment with the ordering principles of the universe. When we are properly connected to Raidho we walk the path, rough or smooth, with sensitivity, grace and purpose. Raidho teaches us to balance our own needs with the needs of those around us.”

“Raidho is rhythm and ritual action. It is the integration of all aspects of the self. It is harmony between inner consciousness and outer reality. To be in tune with Raidho is to proceed gracefully upon your path and to live rightly. The act of ‘riding’ requires you to be aware of the world around you, to direct your steed, but it also provides you with support – your horse or carriage will carry you forward if you tend it and guide it well.”
Pink Lotus
As I progressed through the Botanical Self-Selection certification, I resonated with Pink Lotus Absolute. It has become our family ally. If anyone in our home is feeling “off”, we open this aromatic and soon our entire family will be gathered around, calm and at peace. To use this incredible flower as a part of the logo was perfect.

Lotus Flower symbolism and meaning from Saffron Marigold

“Because lotuses rise from the mud without stains, they are often viewed as a symbol of purity. Since they return to the murky water each evening and open their blooms at the break of day, lotus flowers are also symbols of strength, resilience, and rebirth. Still another lotus flower meaning is transcendence: the lotus represents the transcending of man’s spirit over worldly matter since it blooms from the underworld into the light.”
