Understanding Sassie

A Novel of Dog and Human Communication

Book Details

How Dogs Talk to Each Other and to Us

In my many years of teaching dog obedience, I have discovered that not all humans understand what the dog is trying to tell them. Although I’ve enjoyed my opportunities to teach classes on dog communication (the body language of dogs), my goal has always been to reach a wider audience. I’ve always enjoyed telling stories. I have discovered that stories can help us to remember and learn valuable information. I hope the reader will find these stories entertaining and informative.
