A smart, fun illustrated guide to decoding your dog's feelings, from internationally celebrated pet behaviorist Mat Ward.
Your dog is your best friend. But it's not always easy to know what your dog is trying to tell you. In What Dogs Want, you'll uncover the meaning of your pooch's body language and bark as you learn fascinating new details about how dogs see, smell, think, and live in the world at any age. Every page has illustrations that perfectly sum up what's going on in your dog's head (spoiler alert: usually it's playing, sleeping, or eating...).
A world leader in modern dog-training, Mat Ward demonstrates that once you understand your puppy or dog, you can train them with love and encouragement, making them feel comfortable and totally at home in your house. Once your dog feels supported in this way, Mat shows, you can give them better care and help them overcome tough issues like separation anxiety. What Dogs Want also teaches exciting new games that encourage you and your furry friend to communicate-and have a whole lot of fun!
A simple guide to giving your dog a safe and happy life, What Dogs Want is a must-have book for the dog lover in us all.
