Election Eve Special: Brother Christopher Savage and Marc Goldberg – The Art of Training Your Dog
During the long homebound months of 2020 in America and around the world, many of us have spent more time with our dogs and pet adoptions have risen. At New Skete, the upstate New York Eastern Orthodox Christian monastery, the monks believe “love for creation deepens through the relationships we form with our pets.” Soon after the monastery was founded in 1966, the monks were given a German Shepherd, Kir. A unique ministry ensued. “In an entirely natural way [these German Shepherds] have taught us many important lessons about life and about ourselves,” the monks say. In addition to breeding these dogs, the monks of New Skete are renowned for their methods of training and socialization to enhance and deepen our relationship with these family members.
On the eve of Election Day, don’t miss participating in Jim Falk’s conversation with Brother Christopher Savage and Marc Goldberg, co-authors of “The Art of Training Your Dog.” At the World Affairs Council we have a diverse staff, but the one thing that brings us together on any election day is that we all love dogs.
