The book observes a litter of monastery puppies from birth to 12 weeks. Tender photographs and dialogue reflect these precious first few weeks of life. That's because "The Art" really is more about the art of puppy raising than about specific techniques, while "How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend" is particularly strong on training specific commands. I find it very helpful to use the books together. This book begins with a section on the development of the puppy - physically, emotionally, and socially.

I purchased this book to help me prepare for brining a new puppy into my home. I was looking for more practical, straightforward information that would be laid out in a more textbook-style way, but that’s not really what this is at all. That’s not to say this isn’t a great book with lots of great information, it’s just presented in a way that I found myself getting sick of after a while. Every concept dives straight into a specific example of a specific client or dog they trained. Sometimes this is good and makes sense in illustrating a point they were trying to make. Other times I just wanted there to be a way to distill the story into a more concise format. While it is nice to see plenty of citations, I wish it had more illustrations regarding certain techniques, and maybe more sections on common concerns for new puppy owners. I gave it 4 stars. The book is good, but I don’t think this should serve as the “one stop shop” for curious or new puppy owners.

Years ago, my family adopted a stray off the streets. She was awful. She would run up behind children, grab them by their knees and drag them around the yard. It was painful, to say the least. We were on the edge of sending her off when we got /How to be Your Dog's Best Friend/ by the same monks. After applying the techniques in that book, that dog ended up being the most loving, gentle animal and even helped some of my friends overcome their fears of dogs. BIG change. She was always headstrong and stubborn, but the monk's advice helped to make her responsive and kind.

I just got my second puppy, so I thought I would get this book by the same folks on puppy-raising. We got to meet his litter and watch them playing (a good piece of advice from the book). We decided to take home the biggest pup, who was crawling all over the others even at 4 weeks old (we did not take him home when we first met him (there's more on that in the book!)). We knew he would be a handful, and he is (there was a lot of amazing insight on how to choose a puppy in--you guessed it--the book!).

We didn't follow everything to the letter, but pretty generally follow their advice. He's 8 months now and when I take him out in public people ask me if he is a 10-year-old service dog because he is so well-behaved (was asked this exact question thrice the last time I took him with me on the ferry. They always guess 10 years, too. Kinda weird, right?).

The most helpful information, I thought, was on developmental stages. The info on training is really great, but they also include a ton of info on your puppy's development so that you know how to use what training methods as they go through different phases. Even if you are someone with a lot of experience with dogs and dog training, it never hurts to read more; and these guys know what they're talking about.

I think I've read this book three times in my life so far. Great reminders for new puppy owners and existing dog owners a like. While I won't implement all their techniques, I do love the majority of their approaches...especially regarding early puppy development and intro training. Highly recommend!

If you are getting a puppy, this book is the first thing you should get and keep. I pull it out with every puppy I get. It has a helpful chart in for when you first get your puppy. I recommend reading this book before you get your puppy. Then I recommend buying their training books also. I have used these books for many, many puppies and will continue to use and recommend to other people as well. This was a gift for someone else since my copy is old and worn. I get a puppy about every 5 years or so. Excellent choice for training and understanding.

The best guide to everything from selecting a pup, bringing it home, understanding the growth and developmental stages and most important, how to understand your dog in a way that maximizes your bond. I bought this on audible and found it so great that bought the hardcover edition to serve as a household reference.

This is a great informative book. It’s been quite some time since I’ve raised a puppy. This book has reminded me of all that goes into rearing a dog up from puppyhood. It gives a lot of great information and insight into why puppies behave the way they do. This is a great book for the novice and expert. It has a lot of information about training and socializing puppies from the moment you get them. It also puts a lot of emphasis on your relationship with the dog and why it’s so important to have a great bond with your dog. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to adopt a puppy. It’s a great refresher course for any dog owner, whether they’ve raised puppies before or they are complete novices.

This is a wonderful book for someone who wants to understand what is going on and then how to cope. I was able to visit my breeder regularly before picking up my puppy and it was interesting to see that the pups were behaving exactly as described as they were being weaned. Once home, you have to figure out what works best in your context but that is where the book is so good because it explains what is going on. This was definitely the best book for me.
If you're considering a puppy or if you recently took one on, this book will educate you on not just what your puppy goes through in her first months but what it takes to become a great dog owner. The parallels drawn between wolf pack behavior and dog behavior especially as it relates to becoming part of a new family are invaluable; a dog will rise as far within the pack as it's allowed to rise so YOU must establish the pecking order or soon you'll have a dog who misbehaves as a way of getting ahead in the (family) pack. This is done through discipline and structure with methods of handling all beautifully laid out in the book. Socialization, pack order, trust, discipline and companionship are all important parts of having a successful relationship with your dog and this book will show you how to achieve them.
