Order your book now by clicking on the picture! The ABC’s of Dog Language is the reference book for everyone who wants to take their dog seriously - and enable a two-way communication in Dog Language!

In the book, Anders Hallgren explains in easy-to-understand details how dogs use their bodies, facial expressions, looks, ears, hackles, tails, sounds, postures, movements, urine, feces, etc. for the purpose of communication.

Although humans are somewhat restricted in their ability to exactly copy the dog’s ways of communication, the book gives a lot of practical hints as to how we, at least, can understand the dog, and, hopefully, also learn to "speak Dog Language" well enough to build a positive relationship with our four-legged companion.

The book gives a systematic survey of all known aspects of the dog’s communication patterns. In 1993 it was the best selling book for the German publisher, and in both Germany and Scandinavia, it is a standard textbook in most dog training instructor education programs.

The book is 150 pages with more than 100 illustrations and photos. Dimensions to go into a pocket: 5½' by 8½' (13.9 cm by 21.5 cm).

The Author:


Anders Hallgren is a Swedish psychologist that has devoted his entire 35 year long career towards teaching people how to enjoy the companionship of dogs – on the dogs’ terms of communication. He has written numerous books on this topic and gives lectures and seminars all over the world.

Anders Hallgren was the "inventor" of the soft leadership concept that advocates the human controlling the dog’s behavior by non-abusive means without choke chains, pain, hitting, yelling, or whatever else has been considered "adequate dog training methods" in the past.

The soft leadership, as proposed by Anders, builds on our knowledge about dog behavior, the mechanisms that control it, and our communication with the dog in Dog Language. Anders’ non-abusive approach has already made dog training in Scandinavia and Germany enjoyable for both owners and dogs. Now, here in North America, it is our turn!
