Harkening back to the practical, easy-to-implement techniques in Learning Their Language, Marta Williams takes communicating with the animals in our lives a few steps further by offering concrete suggestions for specific animal issues. Starting with a basic overview of what it means to communicate intuitively with animals, Marta goes on to offer case studies of how such communication can work. Marta guides readers step by step to a new understanding of how and when animals communicate, and teaches simple ways to begin interpreting and testing the signals animals give to humans. The particular focus of this book is solving common animal behaviour issues. Perhaps a dog constantly barks or lunges, or a cat goes missing or won't eat. Maybe there is a new animal in the household or a new child, and another animal is reacting inappropriately. Or, a horse shies and won't respond to training. All of these issues and more are dealt with through examples, exercises, and case studies. Photographs of the animals give the book an authentic feel and can be used to test communication skills with the accompanying exercises. The exercises will help readers build their skills and practice new techniques as they learn them, making the relationship with their companion animals a two-way connection. Marta titles one of her chapters "peaceable kingdom", and her book will help readers realize that dream in their own households and, perhaps, their neighborhoods by employing a few simple techniques.
