Interesting and cute. Kids should like this one.

Dogs communicate in many more ways than barking, yapping, growling and whimpering. A dog tells us what it wants or feels in non-verbal ways too - by the way it wags or holds its tail, holds its paw, points its ears, licks your face, looks (or stares) at you - and in other ways as well.

How to Speak DOG: A Guide to Decoding Dog Language demystifies a dog’s body language so that you will have a better idea of what it means when your dog rolls over, holds its tail straight, wags its tail slowly, pricks its ears or puts its paw on your knee.
More than fifty different puppy poses with detailed explanations of their meanings are provided, as well as fun facts about dogs and their abilities, training tips, advice about caring for dogs, hands-on activities, quizzes and - because this is a National Geographic publication - many wonderful colour photos too.

Some forms of canine communication may surprise you. A yawn, for example, might not mean that a dog is tired. Instead, it might be a calming mechanism at a time when a dog is feeling uncertain or stressed.

This is an excellent book for anyone who has ever wished that they knew more about their pooch’s body language. Further sources of information are listed at the end of the book.

Co-author Gary Weitzman is a veterinarian and president of the San Diego Humane Society.

A great source for learning the language of dogs! Between the descriptions, and mini tests you are sure to gain a better understanding of all the wiggles and waggles. The book is quick and easy to read, and contains amusing facts to hold your interest as well. This, and all the pictures, also makes it accessible to older children.
