Publisher's Summary

Parlez-vous Doggish? At long last, dogs will know just how smart their owners can be. By unlocking the secrets of the hidden language of dogs, psychologist Stanley Coren allows us into the doggy dialogue, or "Doggish", and makes effective communication a reality.
Drawing on substantial research in animal behavior, evolutionary biology, and years of personal experience, Coren demonstrates that the average house dog can understand language at about the level of a two-year-old human. While actual conversation of the sort Lassie seemed capable of in Hollywood mythmaking remains forever out of reach, Coren shows us that a great deal of real communication is possible beyond the giving and obeying of commands.
How to Speak Dog not only provides the sounds, words, actions, and movements with which we can effectively communicate with our dogs, but also deciphers the signs that our dogs give to us. With easy-to-follow tips on how humans can mimic the language dogs use to talk with one another, How to Speak Dog gives dog lovers the skills they need to improve their relationships with their pets.

Very descriptive of dog language, excellent, useful.

Excellent, detailed descriptions. Although this is an audiobook, I truly wished for video illustrations many times as visualising bodylanguage is challenging especially when it happens fast as it generally does in annimals. For sounds I wished for actual dogsounds rather than immitated by human voice.
I train my GSD's for SAR and we compete. I found this infomation very useful since understanding and communication is the basis for all training. Techniques are important, but usless unless you can read you training companion and arrive at the result together. And awesome feeling of accomplishmenr and bonding for both!

Not necessarily new info (so far)

I listen in my car. im on chapter 4, so far its not so much NEW information , but does refresh me in my current knowledge. i am not done yet, but ill try to revisit this review when i am.

i am a dog trainer or rather a dog translator for humans. most of my knowledge is self learned , but i am looking to get into some kind of schooling , as to continue to grow.

for anyone just starting out , the beginning should prove very insightful and if anything help you decide if youre on the right path.
