Book Synopsis



The classic bestseller that established the Monks of New Skete as America's most trusted authorities on dog training, canine behavior, and the animal/human bond, updated to include the latest developments in canine health.
In their two now-classic bestsellers, How to be Your Dog's Best Friend and The Art of Raising a Puppy, the Monks draw on their experience as long-time breeders of German shepherds and as trainers of dogs of all breeds to provide--brilliantly distilled--the indispensable information and advice that every dog owner needs.

This new edition of The Art of Raising a Puppy features new photographs throughout, along with updated chapters on play, crating, adopting dogs from shelters and rescue organizations, raising dogs in an urban environment, and the latest developments in canine health and canine behavioral theory.

At this point, I have only just started the chapters on the actual training methods, the first half of the book discussed how to care of younger puppies and stories to better understand the importance of training.. i found it very interesting but glad to finally get to the part that will help my 5 mos old puppy. My only criticism is that I don't feel it addresses the situation of getting a puppy at 4 months instead of 2 months that well.. but I do have more to read.

Great Resource For All Dog Owners

5 out of 5 stars
Lena - 10 years ago
This book was recommended by a breeder as a training guide for raising a puppy. I love the gentle, relationship-centered approach taken by the Monks of New Skeet toward raising a puppy to become a trusted companion and loyal family member. They have a deep knowledge base and understanding of social and physical attributes associated with responsible dog-ownership. Should be a must read for all dog owners!!!
