Veterinary naturopath and show dog enthusiast Tracie Laliberte will help you learn what your dog is really trying to tell you.

Do you know what your dog is trying to tell you? Learn how every dog communicates using sounds and body language. Understanding the human translation of these messages enables you to "read" strange dogs, enriches the relationship with your pet, and is useful for correcting problem behaviors in canine interactions. Best of all, you can communicate back! This program examines an array of doggy body signals as well as an index of pooch sounds and explains what they mean. It also shows you how this information can be used to outline any dog's emotional state.
