Product Description

Do you speak dog? How to Speak Dog is a fun, informative, and photographically driven book that helps kids understand what their dog is trying to tell them through body language and behavior. Super-engaging dog photography, along with National Geographic Kids'' signature bold and bouncy design, helps illustrate the key canine concepts. Quick-hit tip boxes, fun facts about mankind''s best friends, and informative sidebars from the experts enliven the text. Readers young and old will respond to the irresistible call of the canine in this delightful book that will warm hearts and wag tails everywhere--a must-have in every home where pups are looking for love and understanding.

From Booklist

Rye rant ray rone. What’s that you’re saying? Oh, you want a bone! If you had trouble deciphering that dogspeak, you’re in luck: this is a guide to decoding canine sounds and body language, from butt sniffing to pricked ears. For instance, “dry shaking” could mean your dog is trying to calm itself down. Belly up? That’s a submissive pose, and as you might have guessed, it means “pet me, pet me.” Grass eating is apparently normal, kind of like chomping on a salad. There’s one behavior per spread, and with 150-plus pages, that’s a lot of insight into your dog’s psyche. But it’s not the in-depth, accessible paragraphs that will catch your attention first; no, it’s the all-out adorableness of sad eyes, floppy ears, and upturned tummies appearing in more than 100 photos. Rounding things out are quizzes, safety tips, resources, and a dog breed guide, plus an intro from veterinarian Dr. Gary, one of the coauthors. It’s a good thing kids can turn to this book for help; after all, you’ve got to be able to understand your best friend. Grades 4-7. --Ann Kelley

My oldest son used this book in his 5th grade reading project. It''s adult-informative and kid-friendly, combining solid facts and stories with cute thought bubbles and pictures of dogs doing funny things. A good resource into various dog behaviors and what they (might) mean. My son really enjoyed reading this book, as did I. This is one I wouldn''t mind reading again and would probably go back and skim a lot if I owned it. I liked how everything was written. Easy to understand and fun with some very shortened stories that were interesting. I''m glad I''ve read this and would recommend it to anyone who has a dog or is going to get one. It doesn''t take long to read and there is a lot of info. The pictures were really good and the captions cute. I liked how the book was laid out too. The end has some cool tidbits about dogs in general and some of the breeds. Definitely worth the read and my son said it didn''t feel like a study sesh whatsoever!

A nicely composed and well-documented book that shows great pictures of many different breeds exhibiting various behaviors. This is an easy to read format with interesting factoids that keeps the book concise and yet entertaining. If your dog waives his/her tail in different ways, what exactly does that mean? If you lean over your dog, how does your dog react to that? Read it and learn something new. The more that you and your dog understand each other, the better bond in your relationship.

This is the first book that I''ve found that reinforces several behaviors that I''ve observed over 40 years of owning and training dogs. All of the dogs that I''ve owned (or owned me) had their own distinct personalities. Once you learn to hear and speak ''dog'' it makes it easier to understand both their needs and feelings. And for you new dog owners, always, and I mean always, remember that your dog will feed off of your emotions. Try to always remain calm. He or she will even be able to feel any tension from you holding their leash.

I would heartily recommend that every new dog owner has a copy of this book on hand to help him/her bond quickly with their new puppy. It will be even more valuable for someone rescuing an adolescent/adult dog from a shelter. These dogs typically have their own unique behaviors and have to be taught to speak clearly so that their new owner can communicate effectively with them. Good luck to both of you!

Bought this book for my 7 year old grandson who recently got a small rescue dog. This is the first dog for my grandson. Yes, he loves his dog, helps take her out for walks, and helps with feeding, brushing, and lots and lots of snuggles. This book provided him with new insights into “dog language”, what his dog might be trying to tell him through body language as well as vocalizations. Oh, and it also helped his parents the same way!
I highly recommend this book

Love this book. Seems really nice. Wish there was a little bit more detail, but gives good basic information. This would be really great for a child to understand dogs. I was looking for more information on a shy and scared dog being as I got one a couple months ago that seems like she was abused. I am needing to find more information on this, but this did give me some basics. Thank you!
