A great tool for the dog professionals. A truly valuable work which will be used as a reference for my clients, as well as the behavior staff at the Marin Humane Society. Brenda s comments on canine communications are as valuable as the excellent images that form the bulk of the book. --Trish King, Behavior and Training Director of Marin Humane Society, author of Parenting Your Dog
Once I started reading it, it quickly became apparent that this book should be mandatory reading material for virtually every dog owner. Brenda s description of the canine language and the contexts in which they occur is very well documented. --Ali Brown, author of Scaredy Dog! Understanding & Rehabilitating Your Reactive Dog
