Decoding Your Dog

$16.95

Your dog has a language, he has feelings, and he has thoughts of his own. And just like we do, he expresses them in many ways.

But these expressions often go misunderstood by you–his best friend. And when that happens, the frustration begins for you both.

Decoding Your Dog: Explaining Common Dog Behaviors and How to Prevent or Change Unwanted Ones hacks into the canine language. It identifies and “translates” what your dog is saying to you when he growls, pants, licks his lips, or gives you a wide-eyed look. With easy-to-understand tables and photographs and illustrations, you’ll understand your dogs’ body language in no time.

Dogs use many signals to communicate, and Decoding Your Dog identifies the ones you can use to encourage positive acts, eliminate unwanted behavior, and build a loving, trusting relationship with your furry friend. Inside, you’ll learn:

-Fool-proof methods for relieving dog separation anxiety and stress
-Why all dogs need a “job”
-When a wagging tail ISN’T a good thing
-The most common canine communication mistakes you’re probably making
-When barking shouldn’t be ignored

Don’t you owe it to your dog to learn what he’s telling you? Order your copy of Decoding Your Dog: Explaining Common Dog Behaviors and How to Prevent or Change Unwanted Ones today.

Poor Woody. He doesn’t love her, but she, like all the foster pups, loves him. I have to find a home for her!! ...

Haven’t yet managed to take a picture of the foster dog that doesn’t scream EARS! ...

Balancing on a rail fence! (He jumped off before I could get a shot that showed the fence more clearly... we will try again!) ...

A little drama right at sunset last night. I always pray to be with my dogs if those last golden rays of light break through like that. ...

I love it when they smile in their sleep. #anthropomorphicanimals ...

Best result from several attempts to get six dogs to stay still for one minute ...

“Something moved in the grass, I’m telling you!” ...

Two of these dogs don’t much care for the tractor-mower. One of them is riveted. I’ll bet you can guess which dog wouldn’t stop following me today. ...

Dogs don’t drive! (Except when parked. Why is the driver’s seat so popular with dogs?) ...

Smart foster girl earned off-leash privileges in three days (and got grass-stains on her forehead from somersaulting in the deepgrassrunningjoy) ...

Foster/assess project: So far, 100% adorable. ...

My sister and her three little dogs. Yes, she is one of those women who always carries a purse, and takes hikes in a colorful skirt. And yes, her dogs adore her and even off-leash, rarely get more than a few feet aeay from her. Otto stayed with them while I was on vacation and while happy to see me again, wasn’t THRILLED to ser me again, if you know what I mean. Thank you, Pam and family, for taking good care of him for me. ...

Today’s new friends. You may have guessed I am not at home. ...

Made a new friend today. Very personable. ...

This little service dog may be overweight, arthritic, and off-leash... but I watched him walk with his Vietnam veteran owner through a crowd and never get more than 10 inches from his side. #damngooddog #thankyoubothforyourservice ...

Incredulous that no one else wants to swim at dusk in winter ...
