9781929242368: On Talking Terms With Dogs Calming Signals

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.

Every dog needs his human to read this book!

  • Learn to identify situations that are stressful to your dog so that you can resolve or avoid them.
  • Rehabilitate a dog that has lost her ability to read or give calming signals.
  • Become a keen observer of canine behavior at home, in the community, and among dogs to get better behavior and build a solid relationship.

About the Author:

Turid Rugaas has been involved with dogs as long as she can remember. From her own classes held at Hagan Hundeskole, her beautiful farm in the fjords of Norway, to her world-wide seminars, Turid is helping dogs by helping their owners see and understand the signals they give us.

Review:

This new revised edition is a must have! Even if you own the previous edition the photos and examples along with the writing are worth it. Turid has a wonderful gift of making everything so easy to understand and relate to...(she has made) an enormous contribution to mankind in our ever-increasing knowledge of man s best friend our dogs. --Pamela Dennison, author of Complete Idiots Guide to Positive Dog Training and Bringing Light to Shadow. A Dog Trainer's Diary

Invaluable! The insightful observations of Turid Rugaas can help all of us have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our dogs. This beautifully illustrated book belongs in the home of dog lovers everywhere. --Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. author, The Other End of the Leash, Cautious Canine, Feeling Outnumbered and more

I personally owe Turid a great debt because her work validated my observations that dogs are trying very hard to talk to us. This book was my guide and added amazing volume to my knowledge base. Her book provided the confidence to continue watching and interpreting. What a lovely gift! --Brenda Aloff author of Aggression In Dogs and Canine Body Language, A Photographic Guide
