I found the information to be valuable and there are suggestions within on how to use it but it is largely up to you to recognize and apply the concepts yourself. The information is clear and pictures are used to demonstrate I’d say that it is easy to follow and understand.

Short and sweet, this booklet should be required reading for anyone who interacts with dogs that’s a lot of people. A big paradigm shift occurs when you start noticing the many, many times that your dog says “that makes me feel uncomfortable” or “could you please stop doing that”. It’s a shift away from “don’t worry, he’s fine” to “hey there buddy, are you okay”?
We expect an awful lot of dogs, but aren’t the best at listening to them and respecting their actual needs. Though the content is ve Short and sweet, this booklet should be required reading for anyone who interacts with dogs that’s a lot of people.
Though the content is very fresh and important, the presentation and length were a tad frustrating for me. Some odd things happened in the translation from Norwegian to English, so sometimes a sentence is confusing or the wording inappropriate. I especially would have liked a even more photographic examples of each signal and b counterexamples of when and why lip-licking or turning of the head are not calming signals, due to the context in which they are observed.
Both of these concerns are addressed somewhat in the accompanying DVD sold separatelybut the DVD is itself a little shorter on narration than could be hoped.
Creo que es una lectura recomendable para todos.
Para evitar malentendidos desde un principio. Y para apreciar a los canes, como se merecen todos los animales que existen bajo el sol. Pero cumple con lo que promete.

Mar 17, Lauren rated it really liked it. Turid Rugaas brings a whole new perspective to dog rehabilitation. I purchased this book along with the Ruggaas. The DVD sure helps Turid solidify her points. I have an “ambassador” dog much like Turid’s that helps me rehab the rescue dogs I foster. Much of what he does she talks about in this book, and here I was thinking I was crazy well, that’s what people tell me, anyway.
If you do rescue work, you are doing a disservice to the dogs you foster and Wow!
On Talking Terms With Dogs Calming Signals: Turid Rugaas: : Books
If you do rescue work, you are doing a disservice to the dogs you foster and your own personal dogs if you do not fully understand Turid’s points. Read it over and over until you get it straight because the dogs you rescue are so worth it!
Did not give it a full 5 stars because of quality for the price. This book and the DVD are pretty pricey, but worth it! This is a great book and a must for every dog owner or in general people who have to deal with dogs. Turid Rugaas describes the calming signals and gives several examples from her experience as a dog trainer.
Apr 10, Eva ‘Nomad’ rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jun 17, Kerry rated it really liked it Recommended to Kerry by: It made me feel badly about how we train Indiana, a little bit. I think that she is actually worse at interacting with other dogs than when we first got her, and I think that that is our fault: I’m trying to untrain myself and deal with the situation in other ways, because of reading t This was interesting.
I’m trying to untrain myself and deal with the situation in other ways, because of reading this book. This book is really simplistic in a lot of ways, and not all that practical for day-to-day life as opposed to controlled interactions.
But I still think it will be really fugaas. Also Calminh totally want to look like the author when I grow up. Crazy long gray hair, Scandinavian sweaters.
View all 3 comments. I am inspired and sad in the same time! I’m sad because of all the mistakes I did with my dog. About all the stress, that I was a source of. It is one of the most useful and important books in my life. Thanks a lot, Turid!

There is an interesting explination about Pitbulls, how the common language of dog communication is bred out of them, but with effort can be taught to any dog that is lacking.
