We buy our dogs the best food, fun toys, take them for walks and maybe even to the dog park... and yet we don't take the time to learn their language.
Is that fair to your fur baby? To expect them to understand your commands, but for you not to listen to them back?
This is why I created the Dog Body Language 101 e-book, a simple step-by-step way to learn what your dog is saying to you.
A simple head turn, a yawn, a lick of the lips... all signals to you from your dog. Every single movement of your dogs tail, ears, eyes, mouth, her entire body is talking to you!
Dog Body Language 101 is 27 pages jam-packed with photos and information to start creating a strong bond with your dog
When you are done reading just the first few pages of Dog Body Language 101, you will start looking at your dog in a whole new light. It’s amazing when you understand each others language how much more connected you will feel.
In these pictures of the dog with his family, what are your first thoughts about each situation? How is the dog feeling? Is he happy or sad? Does he want to play? Or is he uncomfortable and maybe even scared?
Notice the ears are pinned back, head lowered, mouth is tight, eyes squinting... these are all calming signals. The dog is using these calming signals to tell the girl he doesn't like her hand on top of his head or the mans arms around his body. This family is making this dog very uncomfortable.
Again, notice the ears are pinned back, head lowered, mouth is tight, eyes squinting. The dog is using these calming signals to tell the boy he does not like him throwing the leaves at him. It's unfortunate that this family doesn't seem to understand the language their dog is speaking.
Finally, the dog is becoming more relaxed. The mouth is relaxed and the eyes are softer. The ears are still titled backward, but not as severe as the previous two photos. The girl is petting under his chin, which is a better angle for the dog. The man still has his hand over the dogs back, which may be why the dogs ears are still titled back.

It wasn’t until we started fostering dogs that I really started to understand the language of dogs. As a foster family for dogs, we have been blessed with so many different dog personalities. We’ve had dogs from confident to scared to aggressive.
When we adopted our dog Ginger, I had no idea she would change our lives so much. After a few months in our home, we realized she had resource aggression. We worked with a behaviorist dog trainer, learned to read her body language, and made some adjustments in our daily routine.
I thought I knew my dogs pretty well, until we started learning our dogs’ body language. All I can say is WOW, what an eye-opening experience! That is why I want to share that knowledge with you in my Dog Body Language 101 e-book.
