New Skete dogs (the monks only breed German Shepherds but train all types of dog) can be found all over the US. The monks advocate the philosophy that understanding is the key to compassion and communication with your dog. Now they have prepared this guide to understanding your dog - whether a new puppy or an old companion - and thereby deepening your relationship with your pet. It includes selecting a dog for your lifestyle, how to read a pedigree, how and when to train, the proper use of discipline, feeding and caring, about dogs and protection and about behaviour problems and how to stop them. There is also a chapter on how to deal with the death of your pet.

display_description 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.
