From the decision to adopt a pup through the practicalities of every phase of caring for your puppy, the Monks of New Skete offer clear, sympathetic, and intelligent guidelines. This complete guide is a source of wisdom and inspiration for anyone genuinely committed to building a loving and lasting relationship with their dog.

You'll learn:

  • how to choose a puppy
  • how to handle your puppy's first night at home
  • successful house-training
  • the value of a consistent schedule
  • general care of your puppy
  • leash training and preliminary obedience work
  • visual and vocal communication with your pup

  • ways to cope with common puppy problems

More important, you'll discover a unique approach to puppy training based on a deep respect and understanding of canine behavior.

The Monks of New Skete have been breeding, raising, and training German shepherds for more than 25 years, and their extraordinary grasp of every facet of puppy behavior has gained them worldwide attention. New Skete Monastery is located in Cambridge, New York.

Was the reader chewing gum?

The information is pure gold, but the reader had me grossed out. Sounds like he’s chewing gum through the entire reading. Had my stomach rolling with all the mouth noise he made.

Thoughtful and helpful

I would recommend this book to all new dog owners. I began listening to it before I got our GSD puppy — and completed it within a three or four listening sessions. Well read — thoughtful and practical advice. Even though we have owned dogs for many years — i realized that we weren’t always approaching dog behaviour well. I only wish I had gotten the book also as I am certain I will want to revisit certain chapters — harder to do on audio version.

Must read for all dog owners

This book should be mandatory for all new puppy owners. I’ve had dogs all my life and yet I learned so much about raising a well adjusted and behaved dog.
The narrator does an impeccable job. He keeps your attention and varies his voice to enhance the words with life as though the author were speaking to you directly. Many of the methods described to train your puppy are simpler than one would expect and it’s fascinating to learn how many of the things dog owners do, out of instinct, are actually the wrong approach and likely making the behaviour worse.
I could not more highly recommend this book.

Great book but NEEDS titled chapters to be useful

I really enjoyed the book before I actually got my puppy and then found it incredibly frustrating that the audiobook only divided the book into 4 chapters which clearly doesn't reflect the actual chapters of the book. If you look at the table of contents on Amazon, the book is divided into 17 chapters so i can't figure out why on earth Audible chose to divide it into only 4? Trying to find certain chapters of the book (for example - specific training exercises, socialization, house-training, general care, etc.) is absolutely impossible so unless you have an incredible memory, good luck finding the info you need when that particular issue arises. It's really unfortunate because now that I'm so busy with my pup, audiobooks are easier to "read" but I'll have to return this book and either find one with titled chapters or buy the hardcopy.

Careful! Outdated version, not like book

Our family is bringing home a puppy, and some of us have enjoyed reading The Art of Raising a Puppy by the Monks of New Skete. Our daughter is listening to the audiobook at the same time, and she shared some strangely different advice that she heard on the audiobook. She noticed that the audiobook mentioned to slap the puppy's crate when it's whining, to pick up the puppy by it's scruff and shake it, and other strange advice. We then realized that the audiobook corresponds to the version of the book that was published in 1991. The current version of the book has been completely revised and no longer employs intimidation as a training method. I'm incredulous that the audiobook hasn't been updated and is sold to unsuspecting listeners who don't realize it doesn't correspond to the book!

Hummm... Nothing wrong with this picture!!

As a dog trainer I see the benifit for any future dog owner in this audio book. Most of the question I get from my hanlders (owners) is after the fact... Why is my dog so active, why is my dog still urinating in the house... Bla bla bla...
This is the most useful book I've read on puppys! I think I will introduce a pre-puppy course for my classes. I really do not beleive to have owners put their dog down because their dog are to active or destroy the house. Future dog handlers (owners) should look at their needs before getting into trouble, and this book covers it all. I really do not any monks but these guys are great... Excellent and very good reading (listening). I can not say enough!!!

Wonderful Ideas

The Monks breed German Shepherds preparing them for a variety of roles. The audio is abridged and doesn't have the darling shepherd puppy pictures. However, it is a great listen with many practical ideas and practices the New Skete Monks use with their dogs. I was a little over-excited about my new puppy coming. Purchased four books and three audio books. Glad to have this in my library and will listen again.

Dog Person

I have had dogs my whole life. My family bred, raised, and showed dogs for competition and I thought I knew just about everything about raising a dog. Having read this book I realized how much I still needed to learn. My wife and I rescued an emotional troubled dog, but I read this book (twice) and use the techniques to train our dog. She is now universally loved by everyone who meets her and will sit, lie down, bark, and high-five on command. She is great with children and we couldn't imagine life without her. If you are getting a dog, READ THIS BOOK, before you buy your dog, and then again when you train your dog, and you will develop a happy and healthy relationship with your dog too.

Solid advice from a trusted source.

Would you listen to The Art of Raising a Puppy again? Why?

This is a good reference work, which is probably better in hard copy. I picked up the audio version for convenience, but would advise getting a printed copy.

What other book might you compare The Art of Raising a Puppy to and why?

How to be your dogs best friend.

I disagree with the Monks methods

For me, the overall approach was too rigid and too domineering for the
breed of dogs I have. If I were training 'working dogs' such as guard dogs
or farm/herding dogs these methods would have been understandable.
But inapropriate for lap & companion dogs who need a more gentle and loving touch rather than restrictive crating, strict discipline (tough love) and encouraging pack behavior & rank.

Consider the relationship you want with your pup and proceed with a training method that's right for the both of you.

Good Overview of Puppy Training

I read the Monks other book about dog training. It was pretty much duplicate information except this one focuses on getting a puppy but is very general. I think this book is good for people who are considering getting a dog. It would be very good reading for them because there are way too many people who are either to cheap or too lazy to properly train their dogs, even in the basic ways. If you are one of those people who things your pup or dog doesn't need training you should read this book. And if you are one of those people who pull your dog around and have no control over him....you are the one who has the problem and need to read this book.

A lot of good advice with some really bad

The Monks and Cesar Millan believe in the "alpha wolf" theory and apply it to their methods of training. While this, in itself, is controversial. They give some truly terrible advice when they advocate in hitting your dog with enough force to cause it to yelp. While I'm no expert on the subject (and they apparently are), I don't see how that can be anything by harmful to the relationship with your dog.

The book is actually pretty good up to about that point and they do say those more questionable practices are for more extreme cases. I'm not sure if that really justifies what some may consider abusive.

If you get this book, count on reading about 3/4 of the book. Once the Monks go into how to deal with difficult dogs, I recommend stopping at that point. It's really sad that this otherwise wonderful book with lots of actually good, humane advice is tarnished by some of the more extreme practices advocated.

You have been warned.

Outdated method

There's good info in this book, but the suggested method of training is not only outdated but lends it self to teach owners to hurt their pets and to not create a good bond between them.
