is My Dog Saying?
Power Point presentation, now on CD!
you want to learn more about what dogs are saying to each other, to
other animals, and to you? Would you like to better understand how your
body language affects your communication with your dog?
you a dog class instructor who wishes you had something you could show
your classes to help your students better understand their dogs?

and understand the animals in your care - and stay safer on the job?
Sample slides below.
What is My Dog Saying
at the Dog Park?
Power Point presentation, now on CD!
you considered taking your dog to a dog park, but aren't sure if you
should? Do you want to learn more about reading dog body language and
what good play and bad play looks like, so you can keep your dog safe
when playing with other dogs?
you a dog class instructor, dog day care or boarding kennel owner who
would like a ready-made presentation for staff and clients on dog-to-dog
play and dog park safety?
you like to offer a safety and etiquette class to your community to
give them the tools they need to better read and understand their dogs
- and keep everyone safer?
Not every dog is, or should be, a "dog park
dog"! The safety and enjoyment of dog parks depends on one
thing- dog owner education. This presentation will help teach dog owners
watching off-leash play how to recognize red flags and when to step
in and help their dog out of a risky situation.
What is My Cat Saying?

what your cat is saying and how your body language affects your communication

you been wishing you had photos and video to
present to staff, fellow trainers and clients, but just don't have
the time to collect them all? We've done the work for you!
These CDs include
over 100 slides featuring still photos as well as video clips of dogs
wonder what your dog is really thinking when you pat him
on the head? This PowerPoint presentation is like a web
lesson about dog language. At present, there are a couple
of books out there on the same subject, but those books
rely on still photographs as illustrations. This PowerPoint
uses live-action video clips embedded right where you need
them, which is a powerful tool—and also shows the speed
at which these things can change.
will teach you to be a better observer of your dog and improve
your understanding of your dog. I picked up a couple of
things myself that I had never noticed before. Highly recommended.”
Response to the 'What is My Dog Saying?' power point CD has been fabulous.
We've sold CDs all over the US, Canada, Australia, Italy, France, Germany,
UK and Japan! We are now posted on the Australian

used your video "What is my Dog Saying?" tonight
at a talk I gave at the local library on dog body language!
It was a big hit. I felt very prepared and able to explain
everything because your video provided the back up. Thank
you again for a great product!!

I can tell that you put a lot of time and effort into the

work for a group of referral veterinary hospitals in New
England providing behavior consultations for dogs and cats.
I did my post-doctoral work with Drs. Nick Dodman and Alice
Moon-Fanelli at the Tufts Animal Behavior Clinic in MA and
am now setting up shop on my own. I am preparing a lecture
for veterinary technicians on canine and feline behavior
and proper handling/restraint. I am sure that your slides
will come in useful for them to drive the point home and
increase their understanding and awareness when working
with painful, aggressive, or anxious dogs at the hospital.
Thank you so much for making this!

Our WIMDS Canine Communication lectures
featuring the full length presentation are held monthly at Diamonds
in the Ruff, presented by Carol Byrnes.
Cost of the lecture is $35 per household.
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know what a HUGE success
our first Canine Communication Seminar was! We had a full house (75
people!) with a waiting list for the next one, and raised over $2000
for the Irvine Animal Care Center! Feedback was all positive and we're
hoping to do another one in a few months.
Thank you again for creating such an awesome presentation and for
your generosity in allowing others to share this valuable information
with dog owners/caretakers everywhere. We'll hopefully be able to
send more CD orders your way from sunny CA. :-)

What a fantastic canine communication resource you have
created for dog trainers and humane educators! You have
covered all the bases and we will use this presentation
on a routine basis. Thank you so much for the valuable
resource! Excellent, excellent job and quite the bargain!

you for sending me a copy of "What Is My Dog Saying." I have used
it for my Level II program at Kutztown University which is for students
who want to become canine behavior consultants. The students loved
it and I did too. What I especially liked was the fact that the
CD is mostly stills. This allowed my students to study the body
language of dogs. It is difficult for students to see many of the
subtle things that dogs say when they only have moving clips to
look at. The blend of moving clips with the stills was very helpful.
Thank you for doing a great job.

a wonderful tool you've created. It is worth every cent of
whatever I paid (can't remember, but it was reasonable). A
very good and thorough job that will help anyone who watches
it. I've been doing day care for 8 years and it brought things
to my attention that I had let slip. My employees were amazed
-- it was so easy for them to see what I've been trying to
show them, but in real life you can't catch and preserve the

With many interest Ive looked and studied your CD Whats
my dog saying and must say; you did a lot of good work
to let people see how canine-communication is working.
Every dog-owner should be see this CD! I have 3 Shelties and
after seeing your CD I look with other eyes to them.
Your dogs must be HAPPY DOGS.
My English is not so good so forgive me if I make a mistake.
Im from Holland, live in Germany and most of the time
we speak Dutch or German.
I wish you all the best!
With kind regards,
CD is awesome. I have used it during my talks at my local
Humane Society where I volunteer as the behavior consultant
and Open Paw Instructor for dogs. Teaching other volunteers
about body language and recognizing sign of stress in shelter
dogs is so important to me.
recently shared the CD with a doggie daycare I consult with
and the owner loved and has her staff watch and they ask me
did a great job with it, and I looked at and ordered many

From a Dog Rescue and Prison Training Program in New Springfield, OH:
you so much! This is just what I need for the guys to watch! So many
times I try to explain the behavior they are seeing but by the time
I say anything the behavior is gone or it has changed! This presentation
is going to be a Godsend! I am also going to force all volunteers with
the rescue to also watch it before being able to do any dog to dog introductions!
The guys at
the prison really liked the presentation. It clarified things for them
that I had been trying to 'catch' during training sessions. Several
of the guys have remarked that they know when to separate some of the
dogs now, as they can tell when something is "brewing" between them.
Many of them are starting to point out different body signals to me
now instead of me trying to get them to see what I see! They are also
more confident when some of the dogs are just being dogs... they don't
separate for just playing now, as the guys have a better idea of when
its play and when its "for real". The fact that there was video and
stills is what many of them like, it let them see how quick some of
the movements are.
report sheets have gotten better as well, because now, when they write
the weekly report on the dogs, they are using terms like appeasement
and muzzle punch, and I don't have to ask for as much clarification.
I have also
shared this with some of my fellow rescue workers, as they do adoptions
and since it is our rescues policy to have currently owned dogs meet
and greet the dog being adopted before we finalize the adoption. It
has helped them tell the difference between an okay reaction and one
that might be trouble. One of our ladies said she feels better knowing
that she can "read" the dogs a bit better and explain it to the new
parents as well. Anyway, I am going to quit rambling on and just say
"Thank you" for such a wonderful and useful tool!
