Do you love dogs? Do you have a dog that controls you? Even a little. The Monks of New Skete have a special rapport with dogs of all breeds, sizes and disciplines (or lack of same). This book lists examples of each problem, and how to solve that problem with love and patience. Each lesson is accompanied by step by step instructions and numerous photographs and such great pictures. After reading this book there's no doubt in my mind that the Monks understand the thoughts, and motives of the dogs they work with. If you have a dog, or if you're considering getting one, you need this book. Review by Wanda C. Keesey (author of Lost In The Mist, release date May, 2008)
The TV show re-done but doesn't contain much helpful information. Their other books are a better bet unless you want to see stills from the TV show. I'm sorry I bought it.
