5.0 out of 5 stars Illustrates a great training method June 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have trained two dogs with their methods and owned the book since the original version, but this beautiful, well made, production really makes it easy to understand exactly what you are supposed to be doing with your dog. The dog training part is set up in easy chapters that you can replay and focus on, if necessary.

It is a nice production with peaceful and beautiful landscapes and relaxing music that make it a really gentle and peaceful DVD to watch with any dog lover, as it really emphasizes the companionship that is the very essence of all that we love of dogs.

3.0 out of 5 stars IF $60.00 isn't anything to you..... August 10, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice DVD to watch for the scenery, music, philosophy of the monds, etc. Only the 2nd part of the 2nd DVD covers actual dog training in some detail. I personally love German Shepherds and there are a lot of them in this DVD and this is the ONLY reason I don't regret buying this DVD.
If you want a detailed and practical "how to" DVD then purchase: Your Puppy 8 weeks to 8 Months. I hope this helps anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic video December 30, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have read the monk's books until they are dog eared (pun intended), and this DVD is a great extension to the books. The visual examples are most helpful - being able to watch the monks train in action! I understand that the monks of New Skete do not receive any revenue from this DVD, which I think is a shame, but I still recommend it as a supplement to their books.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you've read their books, skip this DVD April 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read The Monks of New Skete, The Art of Raising a Puppy and let me say I think that book was amazing, thorough, was the best of the half dozen puppy books I've read. But about this video, I feel this video doesn't add any additional training info that wasn't already in the book. There are 2 DVDs, the first one is essentially about the Monk's philosophical approach to raising dogs. The second DVD continues this philosophy and then finally, finally in the very last section there is some actual training demonstrations that lasts about 20 minutes. But is is the SAME training material that is covered in the book as well.

I gave the video 4 stars because if you haven't read The Monks of New Skete, The Art of Raising a Puppy book, getting this DVD is a good idea. If you've read the book, my advice is to skip this DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars The monks got screwed? January 3, 2013
Format:DVD
The monks have incredible insight into how to train your dog. Nothing about this review should discourage the reader from purchasing their other works. This review is about the circumstances of how the video was produced, not the quality of its content.

According to this Amazon listing, the video supposedly sold over 1mm copies. Allegedly, the producer (Atmosphere Entertainment) claimed that the DVD was "not profitable" and so refused to pay the monks for their work. Search for "Atmosphere Entertainment New Skete lawsuit" on Google and you'll see the controversy. The monks apparently sued Atmosphere Entertainment though the only case I was able to find seems like that their case might have rejected because the damages were too high for the court's jurisdiction (I am not a lawyer). It's also worth noting that the monks themselves do not sell the DVD on their website, which seems to further support this. If this is true, I think it's unethical to buy this DVD since it would exploit quality, loving folks.

All that said, the monk's books on training and raising dogs ("How to Be Your Dog's Best Friend: The Classic Training Manual for Dog Owners (Revised & Updated Edition)" and "The Art of Raising a Puppy (Revised Edition)") are absolutely excellent and well worth reading. My uncle adopted a German Shepherd from the monks many years ago and I still consider the pair to have the strongest bond between man and dog I have ever seen. I have recently adopted a pitbull from the shelter and we are training her primarily with the monk's philosophy and methodologies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Books, Bad Video July 6, 2010
By DC
Format:DVD
The Monks of New Skete have some very well writen BOOKS with really good information. I highly recommend their books. The video or CD "Raising Your Dog" by "The Monks of New Skete" was done by "Atmosphere Entertainment", NOT by "The Monks of New Skete". THE MONKS DO NOT MAKE A PENNY ON THIS VIDEO. ALL money goes to Atmosphere Entertainment. Because of this greedy company taking advantage of the Monks, nobody should be buying or selling this video. Shame on You! For more info go to the Monks website at [...] (they have a statement on their website about this matter). Support the Monks, not A.E who did a BAD JOB in making this video.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great program for training your dog May 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I initially read the book, and finally purchased the DVD to train our JRT. Yes, the monks share a lot of teaching philosophy; they encourage you to be a benevolent leader, among other things. But, these guys are professionals. What should you expect? The training DVD is easy to follow. You'll be able to make your dog heel in 5 minutes! No, I'm only joking; it's not that easy....but, honestly, I've worked with a trainer before purchasing this DVD. The basic philosophy presented in this DVD is pretty much the same method used by the trainer. If you're really serious about wanting to have a well-mannered animal companion, then you might want to give this one a try. But it will require effort, patience, and love on your part.

Try going to dogwise dot com, they have lots of dog training videos better than the Monks, IMHO.
