What is it that your dog is trying to say . . . and are you listening?

Insights into the canine mind combined with practical advice to solve common problems will help you bond with your dog in a whole new way. Your dog will be happier, healthier . . . and better behaved.


If you want a smart dog, you’ve got to be a smart owner!




My View:

Every dog lover should own this book!

This book is beautifully presented – the photos are amazing, Alex Cearns you are to be congratulated for your work on this book – the dogs photographed here show so many expressions you fall in love with all of them.


The book – Laura Vissaritis has produced a book that not only is appealing but also has a wealth of sensible advice for all dog owners such as; rewarding positive behaviours, having routines, giving consistent messages, advice about how dogs communicate – multi sensory – using their body, ears, nose, and eyes,( Bob the Dog particularly favours tactile exchanges– he loves being cuddled, having his belly rubbed, leaning on you, sitting on you… loves being close to his humans).


“Remember the responsibility you have for your dog. You are, after all. The one she can’t live without.” *BOL

  1. It sounds like a great book, Carol! And our Mr. Metoo is the same way as Bob the Dog. He loves the tactile. Our Indy is a really keen observer of our behavior, too. She misses absolutely nothing; Just from that I’ve seen that you need to communicate in a multisensory way.
