Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In their books Divine Canine, How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend, and The Art of Raising a Puppy, which together have sold more than one million copies, the Monks of New Skete helped dog owners to learn and implement the warm, loving, and remarkably successful dog-training methods developed at the monastery. Through their work, they have become the preeminent authorities on the most productive ways to achieve what every dog owner desires: a companion who can enrich one's life. Dogs & Devotion commemorates that special relationship with a gorgeous volume sure to delight any dog lover. Like the Monks' previous book, I & Dog, this book takes readers on an eloquent exploration of the profound attachment between human and dog, with spectacular photography alongside inspirational passages from the monks. Incorporating the wisdom and insight they have gained over decades of living with and training dogs of all breeds, Dogs & Devotion focuses on the love that grows through respect, time, and nurturing--a love as deep as any between humans.

Synopsis:

In "Divine Canine," the Monks of New Skete explained the successful dog-training methods developed at the monastery. Their latest work commemorates the special relationship between dog owners and their pets--a gorgeous volume sure to delight any dog lover.

Synopsis:

Perhaps one of the reasons we are so devoted to our dogs is that they help us become who we're supposed to be.

"How easy to get lost in a dog's eyes!" write the Monks of New Skete in this new book celebrating our lives with our dogs. Far from getting lost, though, you might very well find what really matters most to you as you read through these soul-stirring meditations and enjoy the heartwarming photographs of dogs doing what they do best--being themselves.
