Great book for dog owners and trainers alike. Loads of practical advice on why dogs bark and how to retrain inappropriate barking behaviour.
I have already put this out on loan to someone who is complaining about their dog barking.

Turid is one of the world's top behaviourists and this is the only book I have ever read where the barks are catagorised, including how they sound, and what may be the trigger.

I bought this book a month ago. Since then, it has been out on loan to various friends who simply tend to yell at their dogs when they bark. Out of desperation many have resorted to aversive techniques to eliminate barking, such as spray cans and one even used an electric shock collar. If people understood a bit more about what was going on in their dog's heads and how they have unwittingly encouraged barking then aversive responses could be almost eliminated. This is a great book. Buy it, read it and you may even know when your dog says 'thanks'.

This book is an excellent read, it is the ONLY book i have read (of which there are lots) to split the different barks into catagories, (including a written idea of what each bark sounds like) so that you can truly discover why your dog is barking, making the training to prevent unwanted barking much easier. My dog isn't completely cured but as the book says some dogs need to vocalise how wouold we like being told never to speak again? This book helped me not only understand my dog, but also to understand others whilst out. I can now recognise the differences between barks, and am more aware if the dog is a threat to us or not. A MUST for ALL dog owners, as so many dogs are branded as potentially aggressive due to a vocal nature, (mine included until i got this book) when the reality of the fact is most barking is done by scared, insecure, excitable dogs, and most aggressive dogs don't actually bark before an attack!
The only problem is if like mine your dog has a mixture of barking triggers,(due to a shaky puppyhood) is doesn't really cover what to do when your dog is an exciteable barker, protective barker, and fear barker all within the same trigger. Which bark to train out first and which is the priority. But most dogs aren't like mine and usually have only 1 trigger and 1 issue to cause problem barking.

This is quite a short book with not a huge amount of detail but is an interesting read especially if you have just adopted a very barky dog and are convinced there is more than one bark! It was great to have my suspicions confirmed and be able to say a big 'HA!' to the trainer who thought I was a kook for even suggesting it.
The downside of this book is that there are no suggestions on to how to preempt/avoid/discourage the more troublesome barking which I thought I was going to get. So interesting but not hugely useful.

This amazing lady really does pass on her understanding of dogs. She talks a lot of common sense and helps you communicate with your pet, and understand the signs of stress.
She wrote another book about calming signals which is also amazing. jj
