A highly visual guide, What Dogs Want interprets all the postures, expressions, sounds, and actions exhibited by your dog. Discover what your dog is trying to say when his ears are down, when his tail is flicking, and when he is growling.
For each of the 100 behaviours discussed in the book, there's an image of it, plus an explanation of why your dog is doing it, and what he is telling you about what he wants. Vet's Notes provide insight into potential medical causes, and breed boxes shed light on genetic predisposition to certain behaviour.
Every behaviour is cross-referenced according to type-such as submissive, attention-seeking, compulsive, or fearful-and these are fully explained in an appendix at the back of the book.
Suitable for all dog breeds, What Dogs Want will open your eyes to how dogs express themselves individually and in their interactions with other dogs and people.
