On Talking Terms With Dogs - Calming Signals, 2nd Edition
Norwegian dog trainer Turid Rugaas taught the world that humans can not only learn to read canine body language, but can use their own body language to communicate with dogs. One of the most influential books on dog behavior and body language today.
Your dog is talking. Do you know what he is saying?
Yawning, lip-licking, sneezing, even scratching are just a few of the 30-plus signals that dogs use to communicate with one another. With On Talking Terms With Dogs you can learn to recognize these signals and use them yourself to interact with your dog.
Norwegian dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas has made it her life work to study canine social interaction. She coined the phrase “calming signals” to describe the social skills, sometimes referred to as body language, that dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs — and also humans.
