The Monks of New Skete are known for their unique approach to raising and training dogs; they maintain the philosophy that "understanding is the key to communication, compassion, and communion" with your dog.

In How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend, the monks build upon the basic puppy training covered in their book The Art of Raising a Puppy to tell you everything you need to know to care for your dog. From how to select a dog to fit your lifestyle, how to read a pedigree, how and when to train, how to properly use praise and discipline, and how to feed and care for dogs, the monks offer clear guidelines to improving communication with your canine.

Filled with the wisdom, compassion, and caring that the brothers are known for, How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend helps you better understand your dog, which can lead to a deepened bond with your pet.

    " No idea who this Samuel character is in the review that gave 1 star, but he obviously didn't read the same book, or has no clue what he's talking about when it comes to dogs. Anyone with a dog should read this book, the monks are masters at what they do and have a true connection with their dogs, and a great understanding of canine behaviors. "

    " A firm and non-abusive approach to forming a Master/dog relationship with Fido. Very clear, but requires a lot of work. "
