Let Dogs Be Dogs at Northshire Saratoga

Let Dogs Be Dogs book coverThe authors of Let Dogs Be Dogs -- Brother Christopher of the Monks of New Skete and Marc Goldberg -- will be at Northshire Saratoga for a demonstration and Q&A October 8.

The monks of the monastery are famous for their German Shepherds and their dog training acumen, previously chronicled in books such as the best-selling The Art of Raising a Puppy. Blurbage for the new book, which was published this month:

America's foremost authorities on dog care and training distill decades of experience in a comprehensive "foundational" guide for dog owners. No matter what training method or techniques you use with your dog, the training is unlikely to be optimally successful unless it is predicated on an understanding of the dog's true nature. Dogs need food, water, exercise and play, rest, veterinary care--the basics. But since dogs naturally want to be led, they also need focused and compassionate guidance. Through abundant stories and case studies, the authors reveal how canine nature manifests itself in various behaviors, some potentially disruptive to domestic accord, and show how in addressing these behaviors you can strengthen the bond with your dog as well as keep the peace. The promise of this book is that, especially in an ever-accelerating world filled with digital distractions, you can learn from your dog's example how to live in the moment, thereby enriching your life immeasurably.

The event is Sunday, October 8 at 5 pm at the store in downtown Saratoga Springs.
