disappointed Sep 14, 2008
I was very disappointed in this book. I expected to learn much much more. There was no depth or insight in this book.
Calm dogs equal good dogs Sep 13, 2008
A light book with some good advice but not a book that should be taken in its entirety as a failsafe "How to". Some of the advice is vague and some of the behavioural signals written about are confusing as too are many of the guides.
WOW! Sep 12, 2008
When I saw this online I thought it would be interesting but I underestimated just how good and how helpful this little book is to me! I am using the information to understand my dogs better and to respect their boundaries and needs. They bring so much to my life, it is only fair for me to be more understanding of their behaviors. This book helps one to know what dogs are thinking and feeling and communicating. Thank you!
help for my shy dog Aug 17, 2008
The booklet was not quite what I expected, but it did have some helpful tips for how I should interact with my shy dog. I did find that I was being seen as too dominate by the way that I looked and reached for my dog. By just changing some little thing, I saw a big differenc in my dog right away. If you are looking for a booklet with some quick tips, this is a good selection.
excellent information for dog owners Aug 17, 2008
This is a brief, very readable book that increased my knowledge of canine body language. To her credit, Ms. Rugaas does not say this is a scientific study. It is a how-to book based on her observations and efforts, an accessible book to begin learning canine body language.
I have several large dogs and have read many dog books. This book was light and enjoyable. It was fun to try the head-turns and other signals myself. I was able to more easily recognize stress in my dogs and then reduce it.
Any language can be mis-interpreted. No book can guarantee to keep you or your dog out of aggressive situations.
