    Stanley Coren is a professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia and author of The Left-Hander Syndrome, The Intelligence of Dogs, Sleep Thieves, What Do Dogs Know? and Why We Love the Dogs We Do. Coren is the host of the television show Good Dog! He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
    One of the most famous and beloved experts in dog psychology shows us how to communicate with our canine companions. This is the only book to show us what dogs are trying to tell us, not just how we can control them.

    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, original drawings illustrating the subtleties of their body language, and a handy visual glossary and “Doggish” phrasebook,How to Speak Dog gives dog lovers the skills they need to improve their relationships with their pets.

    • How to Speak Dog

      This book is an excellent source for understanding dog behavior. It still helps me understand what my dogs are saying to me and to each other. The book contains sketches that illustrate body language and well-written descriptions of animal language. Most importantly, it explains very clearly how to understand and interact (or not) when dogs are working out alpha rank. I recommend this book to anyone that has a dog.
