Customer Reviews of The Art of Raising a Puppy (Revised Edition)

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Wisdom I absolutely devoured this book. Let's be honest, the run-of-the-mill, "how to train your dog" books always have the potential of being boring as all-get-out, or daunting in their approach. This fantastic book is neither. The Monks of New Skete have put their love, their wisdom, and their 40+ years of experience into this book, giving the reader important insight into the minds of our canine companions, from birth onward. If you think this is no more than romantic tripe, think again! It's full of practical advice, from choosing your breed, to puppy temperament testing, to toilet training, schedules (there's even a handy sample schedule!), socializing, body language and far beyond what I have room to expound on here.  Whether you're considering a dog, have a new puppy or rescue, or have been a longtime owner, GIVE THIS BOOK A READ. Not only is it incredibly insightful, but it is approachable and a pleasure to read.
