This book should have been called; On Talkiing Terms with Humans: Calming Signals.
Turid Rugaas is the original Dr. Doolittle for Dogs.
Although the book is quite thin (33 pages) Turid has managed to share the wonderful knowlege that she has lear'nt over the years the fact that we CAN communicate with our dogs in their own language, and the most amazing thing is it is something dog owners have all been living with (all be it ignorantly) for all of our dog owning lives. Upon finishing the book and attending one of her seminars I was quite abashed to learn that my dogs have been talking to me and in my ignorance I have been totally ignoring them!.
Anybody who loves their dogs must read this book to enlighten themselves with the way the dogs body and vocal language works. I own a Briard who come to me with terriable pyscological problems and I struggled for almost 2 long years trying to get to the base of the problem, it was only once I had taken in the teachings of Turid Rugaas was I totally able to understand my Brard's problems. I now live with a kind loving boy, instead of the nervous mis-understood boy that he once was. Finally I would like to offer big thanks to Turid for sharing her own valuable knowledge with anybody who would take time to listen.
This book is a must for ALL dog owners.
Because it makes me understand what my dog 'think' and feel in social situations with other dogs and people AND it also gives good examples how I can communicate back positive messages of peace, calm and assertiveness.
This is not a book about owner being a 'topdog' and how to reinforce this message in your dog. When you can understand your dog and make him feel safer and more comfortable in social situations - he or she will give you enough credit anyway.
Excellent photos, explanations conceise and to the point, lovely examples of life situations with her fantastic dogs.
I look forward to using these calming signals and using the information gained to help understand what my dog is trying to tell me!
