Monks of New Skete, writers of bestselling books How to be Your Dog’s Best Friend and The Art of Raising Your Puppy, to share their philosophy and knowledge with fellow dog owners and trainers.

CAMBRIDGE, NY - The Monks of New Skete will be welcoming dog owners and dog trainers at their monastery this summer for a 3-day seminar that focuses on their philosophy of living intentionally with your dog.

The Art of Living with Your Dog Seminars are being held May 20 to 22 and July 15 to 17, 2016, and are intended to provide the dog enthusiast a better understanding of their dog’s behavior through the experience of the Monks of New Skete.  Topics include Puppy Socialization, How to Live Intentionally with Your Dog and Have the Dog of Your Dreams, Spiritual Dimension in the Human/Dog Relationship, and several talks on how New Skete became involved with dogs and dog training.

This is the third year of conducting The Art of Living with Your Dog seminars.  The conference includes breakfast and lunch each day, with an optional dinner with the monks. Attendees will be traveling from as far as Switzerland and Australia.  Past attendees have been from East Coast to the West Coast, Canada and Mexico.  Gwen and Richard, from Kentucky attended last year’s seminar and wrote, “We thoroughly enjoyed the "Art of Living with Your Dog" conference.  Thank you for the depth of knowledge and understanding which you made so readily available to us.  Thank you for your gracious hospitality.  We felt entirely welcome and at ease.  Thank you for all the hard work and logistical considerations that resulted in a seamless, well-coordinated conference.  Thank you for the preparation that went into the excellent presentations.  And thank you for feeding us so well!”   

Advance registration is required to attend, and space is limited.  To learn more about the Art of Living with Your Dog Seminar and the Monks of New Skete, visit
