The Monks of Skete have lived as a community in Cambridge, New York for more than thirty years. They support themselves by breeding, raising and training dogs at their monastery. Their two books on dog training have sold nearly 1 million hardcover copies.
It is the most readable book on dog training for the layman that this reviewer has come across. Any person who has ever thought of owning a dog should read this engaging book from cover to cover. - LIBRARY JOURNALAn excellent course in canine care and obedience... full of sympathetic details and well-illustrated chapters. - NEWSDAYThe Monls of New Skete have turned out a book on virtually every phase of dog care, understanding and training. They have done so from a tremendous depth of affection for the animal- an affection that shows in phase after phase of the book. A fine book indeed. - WAHINGTON POST
