My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog Victoria Stilwell reveals the secret language of dogs in this wonderful, easy to read book. I have read multiple dog books and still found I learned many things from this book. If you aren’t someone who likes to read (such as my husband) this is the perfect book for you since it is broken into small sections and you can choose to read it cover to cover, or pick and choose the things that interest you. I always enjoyed Victoria’s show on animal planet, so I was happy to read this when I received an ARC to read and give an honest review of the book. The full-color photos and illustrations are very helpful as well and some (such as the cover) just make you smile when you look at them. In this book Victoria is basically translating how to “speak dog”. She helps you to understand what different tail wags mean, boredom barking vs. warning barking and even a section for care for you aging dog and some changes you will see in your dogs mood and temperament as he/she ages. I think this book would be a great gift for any dog lover and the perfect read for anyone who wants to understand their beloved pet more.
