How to Learn It, Speak it, and Use It to Have a Happy, Healthy, Well-Behaved Dog

About The Book

From teaching basic training to eliminating destructive habits, Bash Dibra has turned dogs of all breeds and dispositions into well-mannered, obedient companions. Bash has worked with the four-legged friends of Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, and a host of other celebrities. With DogSpeak, his $300-an-hour lessons are now available to you. The secret of Bash's success is his uncanny ability to speak to dogs in their own language. With clear and simple guidance, Bash shows you how to interpret their unmistakable vocabulary, including:
  • Facial expression: reading a dog's emotions, state of health, and intentions by watching for signs like narrowing of the eyes or wrinkling of the muzzle
  • Body language: learning the meaning of body stances and tail positions, including the "I'm top dog around here, don't mess with me" and "I'm feeling low" poses
  • Vocalization: understanding why dogs bark, how to satisfy their needs, and how to prevent problem barking

Filled with Bash's inimitable warmth and humor, as well as fascinating facts about man's best friend, DogSpeak turns dog training into a game that both you and your dog will enjoy.
