The monks of New Skete took their years of experience training dogs at the monastery and turned it into one of the best "how-to" books for raising a canine friend. Using just the right mix of discipline and love, the monks offer some great advice to develop a good relationship with a well-trained and cared-for companion. Where the book itself can bog down in details, the audiobook is a godsend for any harried pet owner or busy person looking to improve his or her canine relationships. The reading is no-nonsense but friendly and makes training tips seem do-able and even fun. The best part about the book, however, is the examples of how poor discipline leads to unruly dogs. While the stories themselves are unbelievable--and unbelievably funny for anyone who has suffered at the hands of a well-meaning pup--the reader manages to sound serious while still enjoying the subject matter, no small feat considering the magnitude of the mishaps.
