Dog Speak

Recognising and understanding behaviour

Author: Christiane Blenski
Publisher: Hubble & Hattiebook review
(Pp 80, ISBN 978-1-845843-84-7)

If you are a pet parent or a dog lover who wishes to understand canine behaviour, then this book is for you. Dogs use their body to communicate – teeth, ears, eyes, fur, tail, body posture – all are used in expressing themselves. The book focuses on these gestures and what they mean. Written in an easy-to-understand language, with colourful images, the book makes for an extremely informative and invaluable guide to understand their behaviour and communicate with them.

The book is divided into three major sections – the polite dog, the aggressive dog and the talking dog. Tip boxes, checklists and instructions make it an interesting read while beautiful pictures of the dog make it a treat for the eyes. In all, it is a useful resource for all pet parents.
