Default Dog Communication

I love wolves and I study their body language, I was wondering if I use simple wolf body language with my dog, would she understand it? Like one time I did a bow in a playful gesture and she got up, wanting to play. But then again, dogs do that gesture commonly. But anyway, would she understand wolf language?

There are similiar behaviors, but dogs are NOT wolves so we need to be careful with this.

You purchased and watched 'Calming Signals' by Turid Rugaas? Huge help, you want the DVD NOT just the book.

Is there anywhere you can buy the dvd online and download. I can only find places where they send it to you in the post....

Also I am reading -- "The Genius of Dogs" and it explores just how cued in DOGS are at reading HUMAN body language. They are hardwired for it.

I have used some of Turid Rugaas information to help calm dogs, and to defuse potentially bad situations .... The DVD is also very good and worth watching
