        Comments about How to Speak Dog:

        I wish more dog owners would read this book and listen to what it is saying. Our K9 friends would appreciate it.
        I can't help but laugh as I read the book. Many dog owners think some behaviors of our K9 companions are cute when it is actually rude in their language.
