Imagine being able to ask your poodle, Who's at the door? and having her respond, It's Katy. Or asking your golden retriever, Do you want a treat? and him responding, No, water. Or asking your Border collie, Which toy do you want? and getting the response, Stick.
If you ve ever wondered what dogs would tell us if they could, now you can find out. The K9Sign system teaches dogs to communicate to "us" making it a first in any dog training book category.
"Dogs Can Sign, Too" is the first book dedicated exclusively to the K9Sign system for teaching dogs to communicate to their human companions using a vocabulary of gestures.
This extraordinary education tool, developed by the creator of AnimalSign Language exclusively for the canine community, teaches people and their pets a unique mode of communication that employs an extensive lexicon of specific signs. Sample signs range from general concepts, such as Food or Play to identifying special treats, such as Liver or Cheese and specifying a favorite toy, such as Ball or Frisbee. Signs also include useful questions such as Who's that? or What type? to naming a particular friend or family member, or even indicating a stranger.
Learning and practicing K9Sign is a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience for both you and your dog that is sure to deepen the human-canine bond while expanding our ideas about interspecies communication.
