Tail Talk: Understanding the Secret Language of Dogs
by Sophie Collins
Foreword by Dr. Karen L. Overall
If you want to get a quick visual crash course on dog body language, this is a book for you. This little book is filled with beautiful photographs illustrating all aspects of the dog vocabulary.
The dogs are being photographed in actual social situations. This book is the next best thing to watching dogs interact in real life. Unlike real life though, this comes with 'closed captions'.
This book is really great. I just wish, that since they already went through all the trouble of capturing all these different scenarios, they would have also produced a video version.
