Dog Body Language looks at the most common canine behaviours in and around the home, both with other dogs and with their owners. Using the psychology of dog behaviour, it explains how a dog is likely to react in a variety of situations, such as while on a walk, when greeting a stranger and before or after a fight. All of the most common behavioural traits of dogs are examined in detail, from rolling over onto their backs and wagging their tails to playing with toys and burying bones in the backyard. A whole section devoted to puppyhood is also included, providing insight into the early phases of a dog's life and its social upbringing. Dog Body Language is an easy-to-use reference guide that enables dog owners to read the signals their pets are giving through their body language. Dogs are often regarded as being part of the family, and this book will help owners understand more about their loyal companions.
