No matter how many times I sign in to something about body language, I ALWAYS learn something new. But listening to highly respected professionals discussing this one-of-a-kind book just made me a whole new level of excited about the work I do. I can't wait to start using it with my clients.

I had a tremendously enjoyable time watching (except for the empathy with unhappy dogs, of course) but so important to be able to identify such occasions and communication from dogs. I cannot wait for part 2 (and three????). Too many great things to add in one comment. This was everything I could have hoped for and more. The analysis of videos in slow motion, input from our panel and members, hearing from and seeing the art of Lili Chin...fantastic. Sadly we must wait until the Kindle version becomes available in Europe and U.S. (U.K. turns down U.S. accounts...). Thank you for creating a community of people staying in touch even when we are separated due to the pandemic. Not only did I learn, but I felt connected. So valuable!

Enjoyed hearing each panel member's take on what they saw as well as other insights. Love Lili's book to use as a beginners introduction to body language and Chirag's tip on having the learner spend a week watching ears, next week eyes, next week mouth, etc. The focus of the discussion was a little scattered at times. I wasn't clear on what the outcome was; to sell the book, to enhance learner's skill beyond drawings or photos, to use the book but remind that whole body, breed, and context is essential for interpretation. Maybe I was expecting a webinar-like presentation with beginning, middle, and end! Saying that, I do have ideas now how to utilize the book and real photos/videos in a lesson. The photo close up and extended view were brilliant. I would like to see more videos and really hit on the "in context". I am looking for ways to help create awareness and teach body language to novice puppy handlers that are raising puppies for a service dog organization.

A wonderful discussion with an amazing, talented group. Lili’s unparalleled ability to distill all things dog to their essence, combined with the unique approaches to the topic of each of the panelists, creates a great view into the everyday conversations the dogs among us are hoping to have. Highly recommended, and hoping for / looking forward to a part 2!

"What is my dog saying?"

Learning to understand dogs is one of the most fundamental skills for a dog trainer, and yet there's always more to learn. When Lili Chin’s hot new Doggie Language book came out, I immediately knew that it was going to be a bestseller. Furthermore, I knew it would be useful for people to hear what experienced trainers and behaviorists see when they look at this book.

Just as exploring a country with a native can help you see things that you would otherwise miss, reading this book with a panel of experts can help you discover the treasures hidden in plain sight. We also don’t always agree, so that can make it even more educational and fascinating. I chose applied animal behaviorist Kathy Sdao (USA) and dog training and behavior consultant Chirag Patel (UK) to join me for a panel discussion as your tour guides for the terrain of this fabulous little book.

Recorded Live Online, March 2021.

  • Suitable for professional dog trainers as well as families with dogs.

  • Includes body-language videos to put your book skills into practice.

  • Helpful to already have your own copy of the book, but not necessary. Please note that Lili Chin's Doggie Language book is not included, but we do stock it in the store.

  • Learn when dogs are happy, need space, and a lot more!

  • Lili participated via her illustrations and also joined in on the Q&A after the panel discussion with Kathy, Chirag, and I.

  • Streaming recording of an engaging live online session.

  • Signing up for a lot of online dog training? Diamond Members get ALL webinars and courses in the school for one low rate.

Three sets of professional dog behavior eyes

to help you put these great illustrations into practice.

  • Clear illustrations

    The book's illustrations show tail position, movement, expression, and so much more.

    We've hand-selected the drawings that we think would be most helpful to see through a professional's eyes. Panelists discussing videos of real dogs help you learn even more.

  • 2.5 Hour Recording of a Live Webinar

    Body language from experts with decades of experience from multiple species, around the world. We focused on dogs in the webinar, but Kathy did bring in a photo of ET the walrus from her work at Pt. Defiance Zoo.

    This session was so much fun for the panel and the audience that we decided to do a Round 2! Stay tuned for details.

  • Bonus Material

    If you miss anything live, don't worry! The video recording of the whole panel discussion, including the Q&A at the end, will be in your course player soon after the session ends.

    You'll also get some of Lili's great handouts.

About the Author of "Doggie Language"

Illustrator, Author

Lili Chin

Before illustrating her own wildly popular Doggie Language dog behavior book, artist Lili Chin was already well-known for co-creating the Warner Bros hit animated series "Mucha Lucha" and her fantastic dog art. She’s the illustrator for my BAT book and Ahimsa Dog Training Manual.

Lili's dog illustrations have been used by dog trainers in books, educational programs, and even a World Health Organization dog bite prevention campaign. A partial list of prominent behaviorists, authors, and organizations that have used her dog art include Dr. Sophia Yin, Fear Free Pets, RSPCA, and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), and her viral Doggie Language poster has been translated into many different languages and is used by dog rescues and shelters around the world.

Lili's story and work have been featured on websites ranging from Dogster and The Dodo, to the American Geographical Society and Scientific American. She also manages DoggieDrawings.net, an online shop of her stylized prints and gift products. Lili's inspiration is Boogie, her rescued blue-eyed Boston Terrier (12.11.04 - 10.20.20). She currently lives in Los Angeles with a growing collection of boardgames. 

Panel Speakers

Applied Animal Behaviorist

Kathy Sdao, MA

Kathy Sdao is a superstar in the animal behavior world, one of my personal heroes. She's been a full-time animal trainer for thirty-five years, first with marine mammals and now with dogs and their people. At the University of Hawaii, she received a master’s degree as part of a research team which trained dolphins to understand sign-language. She then worked for the United States Navy to train dolphins for open-ocean military tasks. Kathy also worked as a marine-mammal trainer at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma Washington. After leaving the zoo world, she co-created Tacoma’s first dog daycare.

Kathy launched Bright Spot Dog Training in 1998. Services include consulting with families about their challenging dogs and mentoring professional trainers who want to maximize the power of positive-reinforcement training. Kathy is proud to be an original faculty member for Karen Pryor’s ClickerExpos; she’s taught at thirty-nine of these popular conferences. Kathy has also lectured at venues across the United States, Canada and Europe, and in Australia, Israel, Japan and Mexico. In 2012, she published her first book, Plenty in Life Is Free: Reflections on Dogs, Training and Finding Grace.

Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Author

Grisha Stewart MA, CPDT-KA, KPACTP

I'm a collaborative dog trainer, author, podcaster, international presenter, and keynote speaker based in Oregon, USA. I enjoy developing empowering approaches to dog socialization and everyday manners.

I'm fascinated by animal behavior, somatic awareness, and psychology. I'm passionate about wholehearted living for all beings, including dogs with a history of aggression, frustration, or fear as well as puppies and my other favorite species: humans.

My Behavior Adjustment Training technique (BAT 2.0 and the new BAT 3.0) is used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. A conservative calculation is that well over 200,000 people have learned about BAT so far.

I have always loved teaching. I earned a Master's in mathematics and taught college courses, but I found my true calling in dog training. I have been teaching dog training and behavior since 2003. In 2010, I started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers about BAT. In 2014 I developed BAT 2.0 and also started my online dog training and behavior school, which now has over 100 classes from my favorite emotionally intelligent dog experts. My new podcast, The Lesson is Love launches in 2023.

As an outgoing introvert, I enjoy traveling to cooperative conferences and love teaching about dogs online. I refresh my batteries by savoring life in the woods with my husband (Tom), Labrador (Joey), cat (Garbanzo aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther"), and Little Brown Dog (Zuki).

What a wonderful panel discussion! Grisha, Kathy, Chirag, Lili, and Claire made an excellent team, each contributing thoughtful - and thought provoking - observations and insights. Everyone agreed, as do I, that Lili’s book makes educating clients on dog body language much easier. The video selections knocked my socks off, and watching them in slow motion was an education in itself. Add commentary from such skilled and compassionate trainers and feel your mind expanding. I can’t wait for Round 2!

Delighted with this panel discussion, and all I can say is that I'll be immediately looking for part 2, which has already been recorded so I don't have to wait. Some of the recommended additional resources include the microsigns course and predation substitute training, both of which I have completed and found invaluable. As an array of resources, these are fantastic and offer many tips to put into practice easily and now.
