Norwegian dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably calming signals, which are signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people. These are the dogs' attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression. Companion DVD, 'Calming Signals: What Your Dog Tells You,' DTB788, is also available.
