Dogs are such familiar and beloved creatures. Our hands stretch out to touch their warm furry bodies from childhood to old age. They are our comfort and solace in distress and our gambolling partners in joy and yet, in many ways they remain mysterious full of wonders, abilities and powers and possessed of desires hopes and dreams that we can often only guess at.
This book looks beyond the surface of dogs and their day to day activities, to the workings of their complex minds and the emotions which motivate them allowing the reader to understand their own dog more deeply. The opening chapters look at the dog's genetic heritage and what this contributes to their behaviour and habits and then looks at different ways of communicating with canines such as touch and music. TALK TO YOUR DOG then explains what dogs body language really means, explores their capacity for verbalised language, speculates on telepathic and psychic powers and wonders on their role as ambassadors for a nature we are in danger of loosing touch with.
This is a book for everyone who knows in their heart that animals really do talk, both to us and one another and anyone who has ever looked with love into the eyes of a dog.
