Expanded Description:

Norwegian dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably “calming signals,” which are signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people. These are the dogs’ attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression.

Companion DVD, 'Calming Signals: What Your Dog Tells You,' DTB788, is also available. The DVD shows footage of many calming signals, how dogs use them, and how you can use them to calm your dog.

• 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.
• This new edition has outstanding photographs with captions interpreting what you observe

Experts praise Turid’s work
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

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 Idiot’s Guide to Positive Dog Training and Bringing Light to Shadow. A Dog Trainer’s Diary

Turid Rugaas lives in Geithus, Norway and is also the author of My Dog Pulls What Do I Do? and the DVD counterpart to this book, Calming Signals: What Your Dog Tells You. She has studied canine social behavior for over 30 years and written and lectured on the subject throughout the world.

What reviewers are saying...

DOGWORLD
This little book by Norwegian trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas provides a dog-to-human dictionary of canine body language. Through years of observation, Rugaas has identified gestures and movements that dogs use to signal to other dogs-- and humans –that they have peaceful intentions. They also use calming signals when they are stressed. These signals include yawning, sniffing the ground, licking the nose, and looking away, to name a few… In perhaps the biggest improvement in the second edition, the calming signals are now presented in full-color photographs, rather than the somewhat crude line drawings that illustrated the first. If you have read the first edition, consider buying and reading the second: Unless you’re an expert on calming signals, the photographs and new text will surely be illuminating.

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
On Talking Terms With Dogs: Calming Signals by international dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas is a truly "user-friendly" guide to understanding and communicating with your dog. Introducing its readers to many conceptual tactics and subtle tendencies which might imply the dog's desires, On Talking Terms With Dogs is an invaluable reference for dog owners who truly wish to help their friend to an ultimate happiness. On Talking Terms With Dogs is very strongly recommended to all dog owners, especially those highly devoted and owners of multiple canine companions. James A. Cox

CANINE REVIEW
Some books make you think, and this little book by Rugaas does just that. It gives an interpretation of body language of dogs. More specifically, body language dogs use with each other and with us to calm down a situation. It’s an enjoyable read that can be accomplished in an hour on a Sunday morning. It helped me better understand some of the point-costing behaviors my dogs produce in the obedience ring… If you deal with dogs in stressful situations, or even just want to understand your dog’s behavior better, I think you would find this book helpful and enlightening. Marlene Parish

NORTH SHORE NEWS
When trying to communicate with someone who does not speak the same language it is natural to resort to gestures and to pay close attention to general body movements. It is the same principal that guides our understanding of basic dog language. Turid Rugaas has spent much of her life working with dogs. Through her studies and sensitive approach she has been able to achieve a rapport that is based on mutual respect. She states, “if you want your dog to respect you, you must also respect your dog.” Through this foundation, she has established a level of communication that is attainable for dog lovers everywhere. Dogs provide many signals during their interaction with each other – by paying attention to these signals and their desired effects, we can all learn to better relate to our canine friends. Through the simple-to-follow lessons in this book, you will learn to recognize common dog signals such as turning away, licking the nose and softening their eyes, and how to properly respond to those signals. Simple directions accompany the colour photographs that fill this slim book and provide a wonderful starting point for a new level of understanding. Easy to read, and filled with clear photographs and interesting case histories, this is a book that will benefit every dog lover. Terry Peters

"Dogs are masters at interpreting our body language, now we have the opportunity to learn to interpret their body language. Turid Rugaas has a made a serious study of the way dogs interact with each other. The owner of a dog training school in Norway, Rugaas lectures worldwide. Her observations were set down in the first edition of this acclaimed book. This new second edition leaves the line drawings behind in favor of beautiful color photos. Rugaas, who has found over 30 of these canine interactions gives us, in a sense, the Berlitz of dog books. This book deserves to be in the home of every dog owner, to be read and reread." Darlene Arden

Everyone should read it., March 16, 2017
Reviewer: perseas
Small but full of interesting things that help people understand dog expressions for a better communication. More information would be for the best.
 
Great Read for Understanind Canine Body Language, June 3, 2010
Reviewer: Zonya Jacobs
The book is informative, concise and provides great insight into canine body language. Book is too short, which may or may not be a good thing since the book can be read quickly, but disappointing in that there isn't even more information.
 
Quick Read Packed With Useful Information, July 4, 2009
Reviewer: Angela Norton
This slim booklet is full of ways to signal your peaceful intentions to dogs. Excellent photos illustrate each calming signal. This book is a must-read for anyone who deals with stressed or nervous dogs on a regular basis. It's a quick read (I read it cover-to-cover on the bus home) and entirely worth it.
