"When I was a child, someone would put a steak in front of me, and I would feel a connection to the animal," she says. "I could feel the pain and suffering the animal went through, and I'd cry."
This connection followed her through adulthood, allowing Zeimet to use her communication skills for good.
Beginning in 2000, Zeimet volunteered at a shelter in Germany, where she was responsible for walking dogs. During these excursions, she was able to determine what kind of journey these pooches wanted to take - the city, forest or field - by tuning into the pups and figuring out their preferences.
"It took a few minutes to figure out the personality of the dog, to see, feel, sense what happened to the dog, to figure out the background of the dog," Zeimet says. "But this helped me determine if this dog is good in the city environment, around other dogs, if he would run away in the woods or is he safe to be around traffic and other people."
Deciding to take it to the next level. Zeimet headed off to New York City and began taking classes on communication. The combination of her natural abilities and her new found skills helped Zeimet hone her talent - allowing her to go deeper into a pet's mind.
