This book is fun and informative and full of great pictures! For the dog lover in everyone.
Every wonder why dogs chase their tails, lick your face or sniff another dog's behind? Now, the mysteries are revealed! I'm a big dog lover. I have a beagle mix named Lucy and I'm always trying to figure out what she's thinking (full disclosure: I talk to her all the time and provide her with an internal dialogue).
There are chapters on body language, barking, tail-wagging, sniffing and other doggie demeanors. Dr. Dave (co-author and veterinarian) is in every chapter providing fun facts and training tips. In this book, I learned that dogs wear their hearts on their tails. A fast-wagging tail is like a big, furry smile and a droopy tail is a frown!
How to Speak Dog is a great nonfiction read for kids (and adults!) with short chapters, interesting facts and fun quizzes to help you understand your dog’s behavior!
