I'm not even sure if this is the right place to put this thread, but ah well!

I'm very interested in understanding more about dog body language and the signals they give off that we as humans either don't notice or don't interpret correctly. I know I find it very hard sometimes for example to interpret possible aggression versus say a cautious approach between dogs.

Anyway, I ordered a book by Turid Rugaas that is very informative and that I can recommend. I still find it hard to transfer what I can recognize from the book to a real live dog/ situation, so I might also order the DVD. But I thought while I was considering it, I would see if anyone has any other recommendations on books to do with dogs and their signals?

I'll put my recommendation in as well:

And here's an accompanying video that provides a few minutes illustrating the DVD:

Thanks, that looks like just what I'm looking for! A sort of photographic guide to body language.

I like Turid's book, but I did find it somewhat hard to take some of the info and apply it to the dogs in my life. Plus of course the book I have by her only focuses on calming signals, where I'm looking for how to read other signals as well!

Thanks for that info, AgilityIG. I found the calming signals hard to follow, probably because Teddy is still a puppy, and I don't really give him (or any other dog, for that matter) any reason to feel that he needs to calm me down. So I couldn't really relate to it, although I'm sure it's a good book when it applies.
