Book Review: How To Speak Dog

How To Speak Dog: Mastering the Art of Dog-Human Communication
by Stanley Coren

Miscommunication is at the root of many failed relationships. It can lead to many heartbreaks and disappointments.

We all love our dogs. But do we really understand them?

Can we really have a fulfilling relationship with them if we don't?

I believe that How To Speak Dog: Mastering the Art of Dog-Human Communication is one of the must-read books for anybody who is serious about understanding their best friend.

Stanley Coren truly loves dogs. In How To Speak Dog he sheds light on all aspects of the dog language. Explained in detail, head-to-toe, you will learn the full range of the dog vocabulary.

This was one of the first books on dog language I read, and it gave me a great foundation to build on.

Happy communicating!

  1. This is truly a great book on dog-human communication. Books I read so far on the subject are usually lavish with pictures of real dogs. But Stanley Coren takes a different approach.

    He describes all the elements in communication in a very consise and detailed manner without trusting so much on pictures. Which just gives a much more precise impression. Pictures are blurred by the particular body features of the dog breed being the subject.

    What I also like is that Stanley Coren is not only going into the WHAT, but also uses his vast knowledge of the animal world as a whole in an attempt to explain the WHY.

    Great book!
