  1. After helping thousands of people improve their dogs' behaviour, Martin 'The Dog Man' McKenna believes the real problem is the same as it's always been - despite centuries of sharing our lives with each other, we humans still can't truly understand or communicate with dogs. This book will change that. What's Your Dog Telling You? reveals exactly what your dog is thinking when he jumps up on you when you get home from work (it's not always because he's happy to see you), why he licks you all the time (it's a form of domination), why he sometimes blinks a lot (he's nervous), along with many other dog behaviours. Whatever your dog's age, breed or personality, you'll discover at last why your dog sometimes behaves strangely. Now you'll find out what your dog is trying so desperately to tell you! Along the way, you'll learn simple and ingenious ways to improve your dog's behaviour and solve problems quickly - sometimes within minutes. Even better, you'll effortlessly learn the international language of dog. By the time you reach the last page, you'll be astounded by all the new things you have learned to say fluently in dog language - not just to your own dog, but to every dog you meet!About the Author Martin McKenna is the author of the bestselling book, What's Your Dog Telling You? As a boy growing up in Limerick, Ireland, he escaped from family violence by running away from home and living in an abandoned barn with a pack of stray dogs. Martin learned the unique psychology and language shared by dogs all over the world and now he is passionate about helping dogs and humans to communicate more successfully with each other. He lives on the far north coast of New South Wales with his wife, children and an assortment of dogs.

From heartwarming tales of canine loyalty to mysterious cases of dogs turning up thousands of miles away, these are the incredible true stories of how sixteen remarkable dogs found their way home.About the AuthorSome people's families try to discourage them from pursuing a career as a starving artist; Laura Greaves's wouldn't let her consider any other path (and she's super grateful to them for it). Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Laura announced her intention to be a writer at the age of seven, largely because of her dual obsessions with Anne of Green Gables and Murder, She Wrote. She never deviated from her plan except for a brief period in her late teens when she inexplicably considered becoming an occupational therapist. Fortunately, her parents' refrain of 'don't be so silly – you're a writer' quickly put paid to that idea. (No offence to occupational therapists.) At 17 she landed a journalism cadetship on Adelaide's daily newspaper, The Advertiser. In 2001, her work as the paper's Youth Affairs Reporter earned her both the South Australian and National Young Journalist of the Year Awards. That was a good year. Next, she did what so many young Aussies do and moved to London for a year – but accidentally stayed for five. Many of Laura's experiences in the UK, including working as an entertainment reporter for several London newspapers and becoming (a somewhat inept) godmother to a close friend's baby daughter, helped to inspire Be My Baby. London also pro
