What dog trainers are saying about Roger Abrantes’ Dog Language
Dog Language is a book that will benefit anyone interested in what makes our dogs tick. It is a must for the professional dog handler of behaviorist, as well as any pet owner. Dog Language is well organized and written in a clear, easily understood manner. The beautiful illustrations help to explain what our canine companions are trying to communicate to us and each other. This is a rare opportunity to tap into the talent and expertise of a well known canine ethologist.
Sandy Meyers (President of Narnia Pet Behavior, member of the APDT and NADOI)

If we are to understand the domestic dog’s natural behavior, we must appreciate his social heritage and the adaptive significance of his many complex behavior patterns. Roger Abrantes’ book Dog Language provides this knowledge, and presents it in an easy to use and understand format. This encyclopedia of canine behavior is absolutely a must for all serious students of canine behavior and training.

Encyclopedic, November 18, 2013
Reviewer: Emmagrace
This is a reference book! Yes, I do get to understand more about what my dogs are saying (and I'm trying to learn) but it was actually 'more' than what I wanted/needed. However, as stated, the reference material is not to be denied. On page 110 the numerical reference for the written behavior has not been noted. I can figure it out...but it is an error. Before purchasing check the table of contents and read a couple of definitions...see if this is what you're looking for. If I had I probably wouldn't have bought this book and chosen something else. The book was immaculate!! The cover perfect! I will certainly continue to purchase from this seller. I gave it 3 paws for content....because some definitions I just didn't 'need' right now....wanted more pen and ink sketches of body language. But I assume responsibilty for not reading more reviews/checking out the table of contents and previewing the actual content.

This is by far the best book I have come across on this subject.

I refer this book to all my students interested in studying dogs.

This book gives great pictures and description that are easy to see and understand
 
the first good one, August 13, 2008
Reviewer: Stephanie Wesloh
This is probably the first good book on canine body language and behavior. Reliable. Easy to understand. Good insights. Lots of drawings. However, there are newer books out there -- I'm checking out if any are better.
