I've read their books. They are a little bit old-school. Leash pops, that sort of thing. I think there are better methods out there.

I've read both books by the Monks. I believe they have a video out as well, but I haven't watched it yet. Their methods are very much based on the alpha theory. They were a good read and I found some of the stuff useful, other parts I found a little much.

Yes Good Karma, Old School is the perfect way to describe New Skete.

I think you have to take bits and pieces of what they have to say. Very old school, but they also promote including the dog a lot in your day to day activities and life and their own version of NILIF.

In the new version of the book they even seem to be backing off some of their more, er, questionable methods.

Their new book is toned down quite a bit from the old one. I read the book, took some info, left a lot, but I'm not sorry I read it.

I have never read the book but I do have a friend who has one of their dogs and he is the smartest most human like German Shepherd I have ever known (I have never heard anything about any other of their dogs so I have no idea if it has to do with their breeding program or just by chance)

We own The Art of Raising a Puppy. It's a newer edition where they retract their endorsement of the alpha roll. Like others have said, there are some good bits of info. If I were you, don't buy it, get it from the library.

Hmmm, how to define old-school? Any help here guys?
