Recent studies into the minds of canines show that they have a rich social intelligence and a physical and vocal language as complex and subtle as our own. In The Secret Language of Dogs, world-renowned trainer and star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog Victoria Stilwell reveals how to both interpret and “speak” the hidden language of dogs. This book is your guide to understanding your pooch, communicating effectively, strengthening your bond, and helping dogs learn in the most effective way possible so they feel confident navigating the human world with success.

Along the way, you’ll learn the answers to questions such as:
• What do different tail wags mean?
• What does being right-pawed say about my dog’s personality?
• How can I tell the difference between boredom barking and warning barking?
• What does it mean when my dog spins around, arches his back, or gives me the whale eye?
• Do dogs feel guilt?
• How do dogs perceive human faces?
• Why do some scientists think dogs’ emotional experience is even greater than ours?

Filled with adorable full-color photographs and instructive illustrations, this insightful “dog decoder” will soon make you dog’s best friend.

  • The Canine Noise Phobia Series - Full 4-CD Set
    Item #: YP01COMBO
    A Breakthrough in the Treatment and Prevention of Anxiety in Dogs Victoria Stilwell’s revolutionary Canine Noise Phobia Series is a 4-CD compilation of specialized audio recordings and innovative training protocols specifically designed to reduce and prevent noise phobias and anxiety in dogs. In conjunction with the founders of the acclaimed Through A Dog’s Ear canine music series, Victoria has developed a groundbreaking new treatment for several commonly-found triggers of canine anxiety, including Thunderstorms, Fireworks and City Sounds. A 4th CD, Calming, is a powerful tool which can be used to reduce the stresses suffered by anxious and noise-sensitive dogs, and is effective in applications ranging from separation anxiety to excitement with visitors and reactivity. How does it work? The Canine Noise Phobia Series is a set of 4 individual audio CDs which combine three distinctive elements for the treatment of noise-phobic and sound-sensitive dogs: progressive sound effects specially-designed psychoacoustic music reward-based reinforcement protocols The dog first learns to associate positive feelings with the music on the CD. Once he is calm and relaxed, specific sound effect noises (fireworks, thunderstorms, and city sounds) are slowly introduced alongside the music at gradually increasing levels while the owner continues to provide positive experiences. Eventually, the dog is able to function normally despite the presence of a previously offending noise or sound. The Through A Dog’s Ear music on Calming is intentionally selected, arranged, and recorded to provide easeful auditory assimilation. Three primary processes are used to accomplish this effect: Resonance, Entrainment, and Auditory Pattern Identification. To learn more visit www.CanineNoisePhobia.com. Each CD includes Victoria’s detailed training instructions in a 24-page booklet.
