Canine experts endorse Barking - The Sound of a Language
Barking will really help people be realistic and logical about the barking dog instead of frustrated and angry. Turid gives us simple ways and easy techniques to understand and appreciate our furry friends and to modify behaviors. I particularly liked the “Barking Worksheet.”

What reviewers are saying...

NORTH SHORE NEWS
“It is just one of a number of means of communications they use, but it can be one of the harder ones for us to understand. Turid Rugaas, dog trainer and behaviorist, has studied canine social language for 30 years and shares that knowledge in this easy-to-follow reference book. Learning to understand your dog’s communication signlas will help you build a better relationship with it and allow you to “minimize the negative impact of barking behavior.” Rugaas takes you through six common reasons for barking, and explains them from a dog’s perspective. In each instance she describes how that particular bark will sound and refers to activities normally involved with that behavior. She goes on to analyze what the dog is trying to communicate and to make suggestions for how you should react to it. There are plenty of training tips to help you adjust the dog’s reaction to a given situation and the accompanying photographs illustrate the various scenarios. With a bit of understanding you can distinguish the different types of barking and learn how best to respond to it.” Terry Peters

APDT CHRONICLE OF THE DOG
“I was very interested in reading this new little book by Turid Rugaas. Ms. Rugaas is known for her compassionate ability to see things from the perspective of the dog, and for helping humans understand why dogs do many of the things that they do. This book is advertised as a “Dogwise Training Manual” and as such presents as a slim, colorful paperback with a glossy finish to the cover... This presentation makes the book ideal as an aid for clients who are dealing with barking dogs. The author stresses that barking is part of the dog’s language; a communication… She then goes on to describe the many ways that dogs are communicating, such as calming signals, body language, and sounds: barking, whining, growling, howling. Ms. Rugaas emphasizes that barking is a “natural way for dogs to express themselves.”… Overall, this book is sensitive to understanding why a dog might be barking and gives detailed advice about how to work through these behaviors. Training techniques are also outlined, such as parallel walking and counter-conditioning. I would strongly recommend this book for beginning trainers and as an adjunct to training for clients with barking dogs. “Animals have feelings and emotions. When things happen to them, they react with emotions be it sorrow, anger, happiness, fear… We cannot let our human arrogance deprive animals of their emotions. We must learn to see them and respect them. We can, if we want to. We must, if we want to be human.” I could not agree more." Valerie Pollard

Great Book, November 28, 2016
Reviewer: Canine Jewels
In this book, Turid Rugaas explains and offers solutions for common barking problems. This includes: excitement, warning, fear, guard, frustration, learned, breed related barking and other vocal expressions. The methods explained in this book are based on dog body language, so they are gentle and force free. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a barking problem on their hands. It will help you to understand and treat the problem better. Very informative and a great resource for dog trainers and pet owners.
