Each module includes video tutorials as well as written content, which you can study completely at your own pace.

Module 1: Canine vocabulary – Learn ‘canine’ as a foreign language
Dogs are good communicators! They have a wide vocabulary of body language signals, facial expressions and sounds with which to get their meaning across. However, just like human non-verbal communication, we always have to take each signal in context. It’s not possible to say, “That dog has his tail up, therefore he is being aggressive!”
In this first, essential module, I take a look at all the ten most important body language signals, and highlight the subtleties that owners rarely notice and few professionals ever talk about. I’m going to highlight all the aspects that every owner should know, and all professionals should be able to identify even in unknown dogs.
You get ten lessons, plus end-of-module Quiz to see what you have learned.
In this module you will discover:
- Why play bows aren’t always about play
- What your dog might be trying to tell you when he yawns
- Why advice to ‘out-stare’ your dog should be ignored!
- What tail wagging is really all about from your dog’s perspective
1. ‘Play’ Bows
2. Giving a Paw
3. Jumping Up
5. Lip licking and tongue flicking
6. Rolling over
7. Eye contact

10. Body weight, height and body movement
Module 2: The Four ‘Fs’ – Flight, Fight, Freeze and…
In this Module, we look in depth at the four main canine coping responses, and ask what makes a dog choose one over another. Once again, I discuss the ‘hidden’ aspects which even experienced dog people may be puzzled by.
You get ten lessons, plus bonus material, including:
- Why dogs always prefer to whisper rather than shout
- Why aggression can become a non-emotional habit
- How to spot internal approach/avoid conflict in dogs
- The body language of ‘flirt’ and why humans and dogs share this strategy!
1. The body language of Fight
2. Low-level warnings
3. Stress signals in dogs
4. Aggression as a habit
6. Approach/avoid conflict
9. Which ‘F’ and why?
10. Displacement activities
Module 3: Social Signals (He can’t send you a love letter, so how will you know?)
OK, not strictly designed to find out if your dog loves you (though I’m sure he does!), but this meaty Module is an eye-opening journey through all the most vital signals that dogs give to show sociability and friendliness. By definition, this then teaches you to be an expert in noticing the absence of these signals – vital for anyone owning or working with dogs and their owners.

"Wonderful lessons! Thanks so much!!!" "I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course, how much I learned and how much the interest I already had in this subject has progressed. Observe, observe, observe the whole, the entirety...good lesson, wonderful lessons! Thanks so much!!!"Jude McDermott
"I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short space of time." "Just to let you know have just finished the online course - brilliant! LearnToTalkDog is not only a hugely useful course for the dog owning public must an absolute must for anyone working with dogs in a professional capacity. I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short space of time. I now look at dog:dog and dog:human interactions in a whole different way and feel that as a result of this course I am now much better placed to recognise the signals dogs give."Cassie Zerk
"It's fun, fascinating and empowering!" "The course is fantastic. I really knew so little about the subtle signals and am learning so much. Fascinating regarding the controversy about calming signals...The examples of photos are great and the videos are extremely useful ... People's familiarity with dogs doesn't necessarily reflect a knowledge and understanding of their behaviour needs of course, but this medium seems a fantastic and effective way to teach this sort of understanding. It's fun, fascinating and empowering!"Nicola Calder
