9780007178629: How to Talk with your Dog

David Alderton's How to Talk With Your Dog is an engaging illustrated guide to understanding and communicating with your dog. Written by a leading authority on pet care and animal behaviour, this book combines expert insights into canine psychology with fascinating, specialized photography.

A definitive guide to canine communication, How To Talk With Your Dog deals not only with the variety of ways in which dogs talk to one another, but also explains the signs and sounds they make in their daily attempts to talk to their owners. Most importantly, it provides practical and insightful suggestions as to how owners can communicate effectively – and have fun with – their pet.

Covering an extensive range of behaviour from puppies to elderly dogs, and from playful to aggressive conduct, this book is relevant to dog lovers of all ages. It is packed with easy-to-follow advice on using communication to discourage violence and destructive behaviour, as well as to ensure that your dog communicates peacefully with other pets and young children.

Contents include amongst other subjects:

Part One – How Dogs Talk Naturally
Doggy dreams
Growling and whining
How dogs use their eyes to communicate

Part Two – How Dogs Talk with You
Jumping up
Ear carriage
Dogs and cars

Part Three – How to Talk with Your Dog

From the Back Cover:

Ever wondered why dogs sniff each other when they meet? Or what drives your puppy to chew your sneakers? In How to Talk with Your Dog, discover the complex language and behavior of dogs. Find out what your pet is really trying to say when he flattens his ears, barks persistently, or seems to smile. Learn from dogs themselves how to deal with problem behavior or integrate your new puppy into the family pack. By mastering your pet′s language, you can get the most out of your relationship, whether  you′re training or just having fun together.

  • Bring up your puppy responsibly by using the language he will instinctively understand
  • Discover how to read your dog′s complex body language–from ear positions to resting postures–through lavish color photographs
  • Get expert advice on spotting–and dealing with–an agressive, sick, or anxious dog
  • Learn how to discipline, train, and care for your puppy just like his mother would
