A revolutionary new training method—using the easy “purposeful walk”—for a fully trained dog in as little as 6 weeks!

The Monks of New Skete, longtime breeders of German shepherds and renowned dog trainers of all breeds, have codeveloped a new training technique. In this book, the monks and Marc Goldberg, who pioneered the approach, offer a leap into the future using a game-changing tool: the remote electronic collar. The Art of Training Your Dog presents their compassionate and efficient system for the first time, with background and advice on choosing the right collar.

Using a light touch—one that many humans can’t even feel—at just the right moment, helps to focus a dog’s attention. The authors help you create effortless teaching moments that tie into your dog’s natural pack instincts and help strengthen the bond with your dog.

In as little as just 6 weeks, most pups will master skills like great leash manners; obey commands such as "sit", "down", "stay", and "place"; stop troublesome behaviors; and play safely off-leash with consistent recall.
