This is part 2 of a 20 book series by author and dog trainer Mary Hardwicke that discusses aggression in dogs and how to overcome it. Before purchasing this book, it is highly recommended that you read volume 1, Understanding Aggression. The author has extensive experience in rehabilitating dogs with behavior problems and this book expands on the groundwork laid in the first volume in order to help you learn techniques on how to manage canine aggression. This installment introduces the reader to canine communication. It discusses how and why dogs communicate as well as explaining various signals your dog will communicate to you and what they mean. Since this is only part 2, it is necessary to read the entire 20 part series in order to gain a complete understanding of the concepts presented by the author. This book is professionally formatted and presented with no obvious spelling, grammar or formatting mistakes. This is a series that I would highly recommend to all dog owners! My only complaint is that the book contains links to several other titles from this author, yet fails to list the other 19 books in this particular series. However they can be found through a quick search on Amazon.

Value Rating: 4.5/5
The current Amazon list price for this eBook is $0.99, which is an exceptional value for the information presented within it. However the reader will need to understand that in order to gain the full value of this series, you will need to purchase all 20 books at the same price. Yet, in the end it is still a small price to pay for the valuable information and techniques you will learn.
