Canine Behavior: Observing and Interpreting Canine Body Postures
By Suzanne Hetts, PhD, CAAB, Daniel Q. Estep, PhD, CAAB
and David Grant, DVM Produced by Animal Care Training,
There is virtually unanimous agreement among expert behavior
consultants from all backgrounds, that a lack of understanding
of canine communication and body language directly contributes
to people being bitten as well as to other behavior problems.
Dog owners simply do not know how to “read” their
dogs and are unaware of most of the important signals their
dogs are giving them, and misinterpret them when they do
observe them. Even if you’ve lived with dogs for years,
we guarantee you do not know what this program can teach
you about how your dog communicates.
If your dog yawns, do you know what action you should
take and why? (The answer is NOT he’s sleepy and needs
rest!) Did you know that a wagging tail is frequently not
a sign of friendliness? Many dog owners believe their dogs
are “just fine” in a situation, when experts
observing the same dog can identify numerous signs of stress
This is not made-up “dog whisperer” information.
This program teaches how to observe behavior the way that
naturalists and behaviors who study animals in the wild do.
By learning to apply the same observational skills to your
dog you are better equipped to prevent aggression and other
behavior problems, and to implement training and behavior
