Sarah has identified a broad range of postural communication signals and taken the interpretation of them to a whole new level. Being able to see multiple examples of each behavior is highly valuable as is the discussion of the distinction between behaviors that might superficially look the same. Sarah presents her information in a warm and funny manner. This DVD set would be valuable for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of how dogs communicate stress, and distance increasing/decreasing behaviors.
