"For more than 30 years the Monks of New Skete have been among America's most trusted authorities on dog training, canine behavior, and the animal/human bond. Long before Elizabeth Marshall Thomas revealed "the hidden life of dogs," and long before Cesar Milan started whispering on TV, the Monks of New Skete were there, offering sage and practical advice on the rewards and responsibilities of sharing your life with a canine friend. In their two now-classic bestsellers, How to be Your Dog's Best Friend and The Art of Raising a Puppy, the Monks draw on their experience as long-time breeders of German shepherds and as trainers of dogs of all breeds to provide--brilliantly distilled--the essential information every dog owner needs. This new edition of The Art of Raising a Puppy will feature new photographs throughout, along with updated chapters on play, crating, adopting dogs from shelters and rescue organizations, raising dogs in an urban environment, and the latest developments in canine health and canine behavioral theory"--Provided by publisher.
