Editorial Reviews

Norwegian dog trainer Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably "calming signals" which are signals dogs give other dogs and humans that denote stress. These are dogs' attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression. The DVD shows footage of many calming signals, how dogs use them, and how you can use them to calm your dog. This is the DVD format and companion to the popular book, On Talking Terms with Dogs. Note - this is not a professionally filmed DVD rather one done by dedicated amateur dog people; however, it does a good job of illustrating the canine body language subjects it addresses. • Become a keen observer of canine behavior at home, in the community and among dogs to get better behavior and build a solid relationship. • Learn to identify situations that are stressful to your dog so that you can resolve or avoid them. • Filmed by the author in lovely outdoor settings, see the signals in action while Turid narrates.

Every dog trainer should be able to read the dog's body language.Most dog owners can interpret their dog's obvious signals.Turid's video goes beyond the obvious.She brings into focus the subtle messages dogs are using to communicate. Signals that are mostly overlooked or misinterpreted. Dogs are individuals and no single training method works for every dog. The key to adapting the training to the dog lies in understanding what the dog tells us about his emotional state. Thus making training fun, safe and successful. A 45 minute video cannot provide the indepth education of a 3-day seminar. It is literally an eyeopener and the foundation for a better understanding of our best friends.

This tape is getting a lot of use by me, my daughter, and our local dog trainer. It gives a new slant on canine behavior, such as how to read signals before the raised hackles and growl, or how to defuse a tense situation. Much of the video is home type and little grainy, and the sound sometimes disturbed by wind. However, the content is excellent for anyone who wants to better understand and react with dogs.

Watching this DVD has really helped me understand the very quiet signs my dog was giving me. Before watching this, I always thought a dog wagged their tail when they were happy !! Little did I know that there was much more to the tail wag then meets the eye!

Turid Rugaas's calming signals book was great, but it was so much better to see actual visuals of what she was describing. This is a great purchase and will help you increase the bond between you and your dogs.

The book is an easy to read and understand explanation of body language and dogs. I have used these signals in my service dog training school. Try the video, it is even better.

While this is a slim paperback, it is filled with lots of good information on dog body language, how to read it and how to respond to it. As a professional dog trainer, I found it easy to read and picked up on a few items that have helped me with difficult dogs. Recommend.
