Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you speak dog? How to Speak Dog is a fun, informative, and photographically driven book that helps kids understand what their dog is trying to tell them through body language and behavior. Super-engaging dog photography, along with National Geographic Kids' signature bold and bouncy design, helps illustrate the key canine concepts. Quick-hit tip boxes, fun facts about mankind's best friends, and informative sidebars from the experts enliven the text. Readers young and old will respond to the irresistible call of the canine in this delightful book that will warm hearts and wag tails everywhere--a must-have in every home where pups are looking for love and understanding.

Review:

"What is butt-sniffing all about, anyway? And how about scooting? What does it mean when a dog pricks up its ears? This compact guide book to dog communication demystifies dog body language and behavior using photographs of a variety of breeds. Newman and Weitzman (a veterinarian) zero in on how specific facial expressions, tail movements, barks, and other sounds connote different canine emotional states. On 'the begging stare,' the authors write, 'Don't cave! That little beggar... staring directly at you while you eat is not starving. What he is doing is controlling you.' Theoretical scenarios encourage readers to take an active role in interpreting what a dog is attempting to communicate. Advice for handling separation anxiety, house training, tips, and quizzes round out a prime resource for young dog owners. Ages 8 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
