The book focuses on practical understanding of the dog's body language, especially signals used to maintain the social hierarchy and to resolve conflict within the pack.
Dogs have a language for communication with each other, consisting of a large variety of signals using body, face, ears, tail, sounds, movement and expression. If we study the signals dogs use with each other and use them ourselves, we increase our ability to communicate with our dogs. Most noteworthy are the calming signals, which are used to maintain a healthy social hierarchy and resolve conflict within the pack. If we can carry these skills over to our own interactions with dogs, we can greatly improve our relationships with dogs. A practical, down-to-earth, logical understanding and use of the body language of dogs. *The new video is THE companion volume to the popular book. It shows Turid on her own home turf, working with dogs. Includes footage of calming signals, how dogs use them, how people can use the signals in their own interactions with dogs.
