The Monks of New Skete have been involved in every facet of dog care for over 25 years: breeding and raising German Shepherds, training dogs of all breeds, and counseling dog owners on the many aspects of life with their dogs. What sets their program apart is the monks' compassion, respect, affection, and understanding of canine behavior and how they incorporate that into their training.

In The Art of Raising a Puppy—over 250,000 books sold since 1991—the brothers tell you everything you need to know about the crucial first months with your new best friend, from the decision to adopt a pup through the process of finding a dog breeder, preparing for your pup's arrival, succeeding at house-training and preliminary obedience exercises, and building the foundations of training. This is an essential source of wisdom, information, and inspiration for anyone who has a puppy or is considering bringing one home.

    " The Monks have spent decades studying dog behavior, training and development and I learned interesting facts about pack behavior and why dogs do what they do. I also learned the importance of carefully selecting a breed, litter and puppy to meet your family's lifestyle and personalities, and how much work is involved to properly socialize a dog into your family and neighborhood. I am not sure that I am ready for this responsibility, having spent my last two decades on raising humans! "

    " This book is great with detail on how to work with your puppy. It doesn't provide age and expected progress timelines which makes it difficult to understand if you are making appropriate progress. But, I am pretty impatient so keep that in mind. "
