Dogs in Translation – A unique journey of observation and interpretation
Two of Europe’s leading behaviourists, Katja Krauss and Gabi Maue, have spent over a decade collating a library of photographs which demonstrate the myriad ways in which dogs indicate their mood and intentions. ‘Dogs in Translation’ is an extraordinary pictorial journey explores the emotional world of dogs, with more than 1300 photographs all expertly analysed.
Making use of split-second photography, we can see the most subtle of signs that tell us what a dog is experiencing, moment by moment. Not only does this provide a fascinating study of canine behaviour, but it also gives us the tools to predict outcomes. Armed with this knowledge, we can step in, where necessary, and prevent out dogs suffering discomfort, stress or trauma.
Part 1 – Focuses on the head & parts of the body, showing how dogs use their physicality to express their emotions and communicate with other dogs and owners.
Part 2 – Analyses on communication signals used in a dog’s daily interactions
Part 3 – Looks at each of the emotions (fear, sadness, annoyance, anger, rage, disgust and joy) and provides evidence of how dogs experience these feelings
