Yawning, lip-licking, sneezing, even scratching are just a few of the 30-plus signals or that dogs use to communicate with one another.

The new second edition has color photographs throughout with detailed captions explaining the behavior.

Rehabilitate a dog that has lost her ability to read or give calming signals.
