Divine Canine: The Monks' Way to a Happy, Obedient Dog

Divine Canine: The Monks' Way to a Happy, Obedient Dog - the Monks of new skete, , the Monks of new skete, I have grown up with dogs, and the approach that the Monks of New Skete take with their dogs is the closest to what I think is the kindest and most sane way to raise, train, and live with dogs! I have read "How to be your dog's best friend" by the monks, and this book seems to be an excellent follow-up, full of case studies with "problem owners" and their dogs. I would recommend this book to someone perhaps who wants "case studies" about dogs with various problems and how they can be dealt with. Most of the solutions have to do with changing the way the owners treat the dogs, such as becoming a good leader of your dog's pack instead of trying to treat your dog like one of your children!
