Doggie Language:
A Dog Lover's Guide To Understanding Your Best Friend

by Lili Chin


Dogs communicate with so much more than barks and tail wags, and misreading doggie body language makes life challenging for dogs and their humans.

This small but mighty book is your perfect illustrated guide to seeing and understanding the subtle visual cues used by your beloved pup to express how they’re feeling in different situations. The more we notice and listen to what our best friends are telling us, the better chance we have of helping them feel safe and happy.
