Canine Body Language: A Photographic Guide


SKU: BOOK-712 Category:


by Brenda Aloff

Winner of the DWAA Maxwell Award for 2006, Best General Reference Book

A Must-Own Book by Brenda Aloff. It takes you through a study of dog body language with many, many examples and photos (many of which were taken right here at DSA camp; your dog may be in this book!)

Your dog is talking. Are you listening?

More important are you WATCHING? Dogs are attempting to communicate with humans as well as other dogs all the time. It s up to us to learn how to interpret their native language the language of body movement, facial expression and proximity to things and other beings.

Canine Body Language is an exhaustive photographic documentation of dogs in their day-to-day activities: dogs alone, dogs together, dogs in the water, dogs having fun, dogs that are stressed and dogs in relation to human beings. In addition to the incredible photographs, author Brenda Aloff gives the reader detailed descriptions of what is happening in each photograph so that you can build your canine vocabulary.

Never look at dogs in the same way again!

  • Learn how to analyze what you see when observing dogs to prevent problems or improve behavior.
  • Follow the helpful photographic sequences and text to learn how to identify the subtle changes in canine body posture that tells you what a dog is thinking.
  • Develop a profound appreciation for the intelligence and adaptability of dogs.


Great for professional dog trainers! Use it to teach students important behavioral cues.
