Kinder Than A Monk?
The Monks of New Skete revolutionized dog training 20 years ago. But why stop there? Improvements are still needed.
What images do you see in your mind when you hear the word monastery? Most people envision rustic wooden buildings, with gentle, somber, bearded men in flowing brown robes and leather sandals quietly treading gravel pathways that wind through peaceful forests. This could be an accurate description of the New Skete Monastery in Cambridge, New York, with just one glaring omission. At New Skete, the monks are accompanied by dogs. For more than 30 years, the monks of New Skete have bred, trained and sold German Shepherds as part of their monastic life.
