The Art of Raising a Puppy

The Monks of New Skete

The authors of the classic guide How to be your dog's best friend, now tells you everything you need to know about the crucial first months of your puppy's life. From the decision to adopt a pup through the practical steps of choosing the right breed, preparing your home, caring for your new charge and practicing basic obedience exercises, the Monks of New Skete offer clear, compassionate guidelines for raising a puppy.

Renowned for breeding German Shepherds, the Monks train their own beautiful dogs, and dogs of any breed, according to a unique program based on understanding canine behavior and enhancing the bond between dog and owner. This communion begins in puppyhood and is based on deep respect and affection. Improper care, poor training, or a lack of attention during the early months can lead to problem behaviors that become increasingly difficult to alter as your dog matures. By learning to gently assert your dominance from the start, you'll build a lasting and loving relationship with your pup.

This complete guide, illustrated with more than eighty black and white photographs, explains the stages of puppy development, how to communicate with your pup, how to begin a complete training program, and how to deal with common problems like chewing, jumping up and paper training. The kind of fulfillment a solid relationship with your pup can bring is demonstrated in the stories of three dogs who have assumed special places in their owners' lives. The Art of Raising a Puppy is an essential source of wisdom, information, and inspiration for anyone who loves and cares for a puppy.

As a community, the Monks of New Skete have been breeding, raising and training dogs for more than twenty years. New Skete Monastery is located in Cambridge, New York.
