    Imagine being able to ask your poodle, “Who’s at the door?” and having her respond, “It’s Katy.” Or asking your golden retriever, “Do you want a treat?” and him responding, “No, water.” Or asking your Border collie, “Which toy do you want?” and getting the response, “Stick.”

    If you’ve ever wondered what dogs would tell us if they could, now you can find out. The K9Sign system teaches dogs to communicate tous–making it a first in any dog training book category.

    Dogs Can Sign, Too is the first book dedicated exclusively to the K9Sign system for teaching dogs to communicate to their human companions using a vocabulary of gestures.

    This extraordinary education tool, developed by the creator of AnimalSign Language exclusively for the canine community, teaches people and their pets a unique mode of communication that employs an extensive lexicon of specific signs. Sample signs range from general concepts, such as “Food” or “Play” to identifying special treats, such as “Liver” or “Cheese” and specifying a favorite toy, such as “Ball” or “Frisbee.” Signs also include useful questions such as “Who’s that?” or “What type?” to naming a particular friend or family member, or even indicating a stranger.

    Learning and practicing K9Sign is a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience for both you and your dog that is sure to deepen the human-canine bond while expanding our ideas about interspecies communication.

    • Dogs Can Sign Too

      This is a good book for those trainers who already have the basics of canine behavior and body language down. It's not for a beginner, as there are just too many things to factor into the equation of understanding the dog, and getting it to be calm enough to learn to interpret what the trainer is trying to get across. It is a wonderful tool for advanced trainers who want to advance their skills and help owners with dogs who have issues, as well as those who just want to learn to interact more their their animals or perhaps learn simple skills. Two thumbs up!
