    1. This was my first reading of the updated version of this book.I was first introduced to the Monks of New Skete 20 or so years ago I had a dog at the time, but not a puppy, so I m not sure why I read this book then other than the fact I devoured any and all dog books as a child And now I remember why they had such a profound impact on my relationships with dogs.Unlike the conditioning training so popular today positive methods rely on positive and negative conditioning the Monks of New Skete emph [...]

    2. A wonderful book for talking about puppy behavior in the neonatal stages before owners generally get their pups and talking about the importance of an early upbringing Excellent book also for some basic training information.I am wary of some of their dominance based suggestions for training however Some of the specific suggestions they recommend including giving breeds such as German Shepherds or Dobermans a cuff to the chin if they growl at guests could be dangerous As a veterinarian we know th [...]

    3. This is my best reference for raising my dogs The monks have aptly and appropriately emphasized the importance of both reading canine behavior and using praise and corrections that speak their language For example, dog mothers do not correct their puppies by saying, Now Spot, that was not a nice thing to do I don t like it when you do that so you ll have to stop that, you hear This is something I ve seen done way too often between human owners and their dogs Usually the offending pup if after se [...]

    4. I bought a dog And everyone says this is THE book And I bought a dog And it s true this book is really great And I bought a dog I m a little excited.The monks of New Skete are, like, dog GODS, and they raise German Shepherd puppies at their monastery My dog is a toy poodle, which is very much like a German Sheperd but wolf like Never thought I d be a purse dog person But I live in 700 square feet What am I gonna get, a malamute So when I bring little Archy home from the breeder at the beginning [...]

    5. Enjoyed understanding how The Monks of New Skete raise puppies The respect they have for nature and setting the best foundation for puppies is just remarkable They take raising breeding a puppy very serious and make the reader stop and think about, why they want a puppy dog Do you want companionship Do you want only protection Please just get an alarm system Because a dog is so much than that.The key is trust through play, discipline and time There really is nothing as fulfilling as a loyal add [...]

    6. I really liked this book Even if you re not super into the Monks training methods, there is SO much good information to glean from this about the stages of puppy development, the importance of starting out with a good foundational relationship with your pup to head off behavioral problems down the line, etc I really like the emphasis on the fact that even when you re not actively training your dog, you re teaching him her all the time, so you had better make sure you re teaching and encouraging [...]

    7. The Monks of New Skete breed, train, and raise German Shepherds This book gives insights on raising a puppy from their perspective, which is interesting but their advice is incomplete and unrealistic for most of us living in the real world, and not in a monastery full of adults who know how to interact with dogs If you live alone or do not have children, then this book might be helpful to you The respect and reverance they show for the dog human relationship is an important focus of the book I a [...]

    8. While I am okay with anecdotal evidence when training dogs, i found this book difficult to apply to what i need to do with my pup My biggest pet peeve is doing an alpha roll on a puppy Sure the dog may respect you, but it will be out of fear and resentment.

    9. I have very mixed feelings about this book After being initially enthralled with the Monks approach, I started to think they were not as sweet natured, Zen like in their approach as I had hoped They are heavy handed in their approach, with emphasis on choke collars, and Alpha dominance However, I did find some of their advice quite helpful, including the idea of using confinement and crate training for puppies, and their house training schedule using the crate, being taken out, eating and play [...]

    10. Since I have read many books on dog care and training over the years, I feel qualified to say that this is the best book ever on this topic The monks of New Skete write really well, giving step by step instructions on the how to Then what sets this book apart from all others is the inspiring focus and expression of the spiritual bonding that occurs between a dog and a loving owner This companionship is what I seek and enjoy with my dogs This book can show anyone how to develop this deep connecti [...]

    11. I either want a German Shepherd pup or a Monk of New Skete These guys know their dogs This book is a great review for those who know dogs and a thorough start for newbies Although some techniques seem a little outdated, I was really impressed by the endearing approach the Monks take with dog training This book helped me a lot with Mingus More than my uptight Doggie Kindergarten

    12. This is a must read book if you want to understand your puppy and grown dog which makes it easier to choose and train a puppy Most info is regarding German Shepherds It was very informative and has helped me train my German Shepherd I highly recommend this book.

    13. this is invaluable for new dog owners and I learned so much, but advice is very traditional and not all of it will be suitable for all families.

    14. I didn t finish this book My husband and I adopted a 4 month old puppy from the shelter this book is really for people who are purchasing a puppy from a breeder It really starts instructions from the day the puppy is born, and makes numerous comments that the most bonding happens with your puppy in the first 4 months of it s life A little late for us to be reading something like that since our puppy was that age at adoption, and also, in my opinion, not true We have bonded extremely well with o [...]

    15. This book does a great job of exposing you to all aspects of puppyhood from finding a good breeder to all of the training that needs to take place The book offers a lot of good stories that resonate with the reader as well as quite a few tips of how to introduce your puppy to basic commands It provides a nice list of exercises throughout that you can do with your puppy to build up trust and ensure you and your puppy are safe.Unfortunately, while the book offers a lot of great advice throughout, [...]

    16. Okay, if you re going to get a puppy get this book first Don t bother to read it from cover to cover but jump around Of course, it does help to actually have read the whole book, but the order isn t important Whether you begin with the case studies or open the book at the page where they give a house training schedule p 117 it doesn t matter It s all good stuff.The Monks breed and raise German Shepherds for companion dogs and have spent a lot of time observing dogs and raising puppies They also [...]

    17. After I got over the fact that this book wouldn t teach my dog to read, I really enjoyed it The first half of the book is all about how a puppy is born and develops There were several aha moments as I read about each stage Since I do not know anything about the first several months of my puppy s beginnings, it helped me to understand why Clementine has some of the socialization issues she has It really isn t her fault The last half of the book gave some great ways to train my dog, and important [...]

    18. I enjoyed the philosophy of this book Other reviewers have noted the alpha dominance and the discipline methods in this book I appreciate both Dogs aren t human With our first Weim, now 11, we toed the line between dominance and gentleness The result is a dog socialized to humans than dogs, and whose intelligence makes her question dominance and commands She is a wonderful dog Over the years I ve made it a point to be the pack leader, to borrow from Cesar Milan I do think the scruff shake down [...]

    19. So we got a beagle puppy and we named her Olive but right now the name Spaz seems fitting This book was recommended to me and although some parts were really great and helpful i don t think the average dog owner could use the same techniques given here This books also points to the importance of knowing the breeder of the dog and why rescuing a dog isn t a good idea which i can understand and Olive is proof why this isn t a good idea but i also just don t agree with promoting that message Overa [...]

    20. Great book for those considering a puppy Great insights into how to channel a puppy s instinctive behavior into a friendly, obedient, and confident companion I found particular wisdom in some insights into how to deal with standard challenges such as indoor urination or excessive leash pulling I learned that some of the traditional approaches I ve seen in the past are counter productive because they actually reinforce the dog s instinctive behaviors rubbing its nose in it, getting into a leash t [...]

    21. This is a fantastic book for anyone thinking of getting a puppy Read it BEFORE you start looking for a fur face to add to your family, and read it again when you bring your little cutie home I loved it Easy to read and VERY accurate Some of the techniques in here worked by the 2nd or 3rd try I m really looking forward to reading their other book Being Your Dog s Best Friend.

    22. After reading Cesar Millan s book on puppies, this book felt dated For example, they say to let your puppy ride in the car without a crate Also to let her wander and sniff your entire home right away and watch from a distance I strongly disagree with both points, and feel wiser from the Dog Whisperer s book Start there and you ll have an awesome dog

    23. Although I thought the 1991 edition was the Seminole book on raising a puppy, the revised 2011 edition is better, taking in account changes in technology, veterinarian medicine, food, and training over the 20 year period from the first edition I am about to embark on raising a new puppy, and this will be my guide as the 1991 edition was in the past.

    24. I found this book extremely helpful in understanding the mind of my new pup As a first time dog owner, I did not know the first thing about raising a puppy The approach taken by the Monks of New Skate makes perfect sense to me I followed their advice to a T and quickly potty trained my pup as well as teaching him the basic commands of sit, stay come I highly recommend this book.

    25. This is a thorough book about puppy growth I enjoyed reading before we got the puppy But trying to read it during the puppy raising was too much I would be reading about different stages than the puppy was actually in I did not grasp the training system We have since switched to a praise based training.

    26. Outdated and unnecessarily harsh methods of training Time to move onto gentler and effective practices, monks My full review here thedoggerel.wordpress 2011

    27. Read this before I knew better, meaning before I knew about positive reinforcement For its time this was an okay book but even the monks realized it needed to updated.

    28. I felt a bit conflicted while reading this book I must admit, when I saw that this was the newly revised completely update version from their original print published in1991 , I had hoped that this meant that there was no mention of treating dogs likes wolves especially since those studies were made available to the public around the time of the reprint However, their book is thick with this sentiment While I can agree their training methods are humane and not abusive, it s a bit unsettling how [...]

    29. I read this book after getting a puppy, but I recommend reading it before you get a puppy if possible There is really good information applicable to the puppy selection process And, there were other things that would have been good to know before bringing my puppy home This book is very thorough and places importance on the development of a deep bond between dog and human I considered giving this book a higher rating but I felt that the writer s expectation of perfect obedience from his puppies [...]
