The Art of Raising a Puppy - Monks of New Skete

Has anyone used this book as a guide to puppy training? My husband is reading it now.

I've heard really good things about that book. Haven't read it though.

I was warned away from it by several positive-based trainers. Just a warning. We have very a soft, "biddable" breed. A heavy handed approach is not only not necessary, but can really be counter productive.

Tell him it's old hat. The stuff traditional trainers used , years ago. They have revised over time but poor training in many professioals views. Doesn't matter what type of dog you're training . They ALL LEARN THE SAME WAY.

We have that book from the '70's. Don't bother. Get this one:

http://www.cleanrun.com/index.cfm?fu...roduct_ID=2502

It's almost required reading for our puppy buyers, or at least it's the first thing Pam recommends someone buy when they are on our waiting list. She likes for anyone getting one of our puppies to get it, read it well before they pick their puppy up, and then she can explain some things in person using a dog as an example when they come here.

So, long story short, it's more than highly recommended.
