Is It Any Good?

There's something endearing about watching people and dogs relate, and in touching asides, the monks often describe how their interactions with the animals have improved the quality of their lives. Viewers will also learn a few tricks of the trade, including socialization methods and how to create a comfortable atmosphere for often-stressful tasks like nail trimming and vet visits. And then there's Brother Christopher's mastery of obedience training, which might offer frustrated pet owners some helpful hints. Divine Canine is well suited for family viewing, but the training sessions probably won't hold youngsters' attention like the occasional shots of roly-poly puppies will.
