On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals

by Turid Rugaas

Norwegian dog trainer and behaviourist Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably "calming signals", which are signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people. These are the dogs' attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression.

"I personally owe Turid a great debt because her work validated my observations that dogs are trying very hard to "talk" to us. This book was my guide." Brenda Aloff, author of Canine Body Language - A Photographic Guide.
