dog behavior/body language

Can someone send some links to some good videos on dog behavior and understanding body language?

My trainer suggested I look at some to see correct body posture when training Jake...

Check out the videos on youtube featuring Turid Rugass. Here's one:
She also has a neat book on dog body language that you can order from dogwise.com.

I would also reccomend the book Canine Body Language by Brenda Aloff. It's very detailed!

Cool video, thanks. I have always felt that dogs give us very subtle signs that we don't always read. I've tried to tune into those signs as I find them useful when communicating. Thank you.

I also REALLY like Turid Rugaas stuff. In fact, I would purchase the DVD to watch it. It's amazing what dogs are doing that we are clueless about. Fact that she was able to use many GSD's as her example dogs really benefits us cause it's even easier to see.
