Do you wish your dog could tell you what’s wrong? Do you wish you could understand why they don’t want to play with other dogs? Do you want to have a better relationship with your dog? Would you like to know more about dog behaviour? Are you frightened of dogs but wish you weren’t? Are you fed up of reading books you don’t understand?

What if:
• You could understand what your dog is trying to tell you.
• You knew how to help your dog, just by looking at them.
• You were able to meet dogs outside without being scared of them.
• You had a best friend who also happens to be a dog.

Then this is the book you need. It will show you how to read your dog’s facial expressions and body language correctly, so you know what they are trying to tell you. It explains dog behaviour in an easy to understand way, supported by over 50 illustrations and pictures. There are also practical exercises to help develop your skills (in a totally safe way).

This book is for everyone who:

    Praise for Tony’s services

    “Tony has been extremely helpful with our recent rescue dog’s anxiety and reactivity after an unfortunate incident had knocked her confidence entirely, I went from feeling very helpless and confused about the situation to being a lot more understanding of my dogs emotional state and was given some great tips and advice to help her feel more confident and secure, not just on walks but at home too.”
