Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The monks of New Skete have been breeding and training dogs at their New York monastery for more than 20 years. Their philosophy of raising dogs accentuates the essential human-canine bond, whereby owners must learn to understand a dog's instincts, needs, and behavior. Understanding a dog, the monks say, is the key to successfully training him. They first published this philosophy in their 1978 classic guide How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend. Now the monks concentrate on the first three months of a puppy's life in The Art of Raising a Puppy.

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. Even at this time, the human-canine link is vital; the monks stress the importance of gentle touch to help forge this connection. Basic puppy training techniques are explored and executed, all of which puppy owners should find easy to implement. Virtually all types of dog problems and dog training are examined in the book, always in compassionate and easily comprehensible language. The monks also look well beyond surface training techniques to analyze the roots of dogs' problems and explain how training can help. Owners are taught how to gently assert dominance over their dog, which will make for a long-lasting and fulfilling relationship. Beautiful black-and-white photographs of monastery puppies will pull at every heartstring. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

When deciding to buy a puppy, this book was recommended by the breeder. We have owned dogs before, but wanted help in training a dog the "right way" this time. This book was helpful. We found enough useful information in the book to get started. The Monks love and understanding of dogs gets your mind in the correct "place". Instead of reacting to your new puppy with habit or first instinct, you learn a new way of viewing the animal's nature and needs. As far as actual training methods or how-to's, it didn't go far enough for me, however. It does cover the most basic things, but the Monks second book is required reading if you want to fully train your new pet.

Von Mrs Kate Nicholls am 10. April 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In July 1997 I wrote the following review for this book in our breed club magazine. It is probably worth repeating it. My thoughts have not changed.
Some books are more special to me than others. On my shelves I have many books on dog behaviour, obedience, psychology etc. but there is one that stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes right down to the nitty gritty of raising puppies, and that is the most sensitive of books, "The Art of Raising a Puppy".
Back in 1978 The Monks of New Skete published a book entitled "How to be Your Dog's Best Friend" and told how the Monks obtained their first German shepherd in 1966 and how "Training dogs grew organically out of our experiences with our own dogs". Their careful breeding and training of their German shepherds and the training of visiting dogs became the means of financing the running of their community. "The Art of Raising a Puppy, published in 1991 is a quantum leap forward in sensitivity; I loved it from the moment I read the first few pages and was gently lead through Anka's gentle birthing of her puppies. It matters not a jot that these are all German Shepherds; we can easily relate everything to our Rhodesian Ridgebacks. The affinity these monks have developed with their dogs almost sends a shiver down one's spine. As I read on I felt myself agreeing wholeheartedly with what they were saying...and wishing that I could have been the one to say it! They have managed to convey all the minutiae of canine behaviour that only constant and vigilant observation teaches and then convey it to the reader.

My husband agreed to a Dalmation for my wedding present in spite of all the misgivings he had about the breed. I purchased many books on dog training to ensure that our dog would be a welcome member of the household all its years. In each of them, I felt that there were holes in the philosophy, problem solving that might cause injury to my dog. I wanted a well thought out, cohesive plan that addressed daily training, submission, and problem behaviour within a philosophical framework. This was the book that became our bible. It was sane, safe for both the dog & us, and it showed immediate results. We got our puppy at 8 weeks, by 12 weeks she would sit, lie down and stay on command for up to 15 minutes whether we were in sight or not. The techniques in the book were so effective that we were able to implement them easily, with just a little time set aside every day. When we began puppy classes at 6 mos., we were immediately promoted to the advanced obedience class and worked with dogs that were showing successfully in obedience with two of the top trainers. They owned and showed the #1 and #2 obedience dogs in the country. Our dog is now 7 yrs old, because of how good she is, we can take her everywhere. She is welcome at our friends, neighborhood children come to play with her, there are even restaurants that insist she come in. Our dog owes the fact that her life is full and happy to this book. She has never had to be tied up, left behind or locked in a room. The quality of her life is so much better,because these monks shared their knowledge in this book. People always ask how we trained her, we go to your website, print out the page and give it to them, because we do not want them to think any training book will do. Ideally, people would read this book before choosing a puppy and then be completely prepared for the sustained effort needed in raising and training a dog.

I have to say that the people who rate this book "5 stars" must have the most submissive dogs. The techniques used in this book (especially grabbing a dogs scruff and shaking him/her)tend to scare and threaten the dog. If you have a submissive dog, this is not a problem (aggresively). However, if you have any bit of dominance aggression or fear aggression dog and use the monks' techniques, you may have a BIG problem. Dog's who are dominant agressive or fear aggressive may lash back (bite or bark) from the apparent (to them) threat. I can attribute all of the problems (which were many) that I had with my dog to this book. I used the scruff shake when he was younger (3-8 months) and although he did not "misbehave", he became afraid of me and actually quivered at the sight of me when he thought he may have done something wrong (even if he didn't). I am a person who believes in discipline, but am also one who believes in strong relationships. Punishing a dog physically only makes a dog afraid of you and does not build your relationship!
Unless you are a person who does not care about your dog's psyche, I suggest you do not use any of this books' techniques. In my opinion you are supposed to build a relationship with your pet and "teach" him/her to do the right thing. Dogs can only learn from the praise they recieve, not the punishment. There are a ton of books that teach positive reinforcement, and those are the books that teach you to build a strong relationship with your pet -- not a fear relationship.
I did, however, give the book 1 star because there is some useful information on how dogs think, etc. Nevertheless, I would never recommend any of the punishement techniques; because when it comes down to it your dog reflects you; and if you have not taught him/her properly, it is your fault -- not the dog's!
