If you are married or dating and haven’t read L.A. Knight’s laugh-out-loud new novel, Dog Training the American Male, (WJM Books/A&M Publishing LLC) I highly recommend it. It’s the story of a relationship counselor who can’t seem to make her own relationships work… until she discovers that the techniques used to train her boyfriend’s dog can also be used to train her boyfriend. At the heart of the story is the underlying premise that men and women may speak the same language but our brains are wired completely different. Conversely, men and dogs, being simple straightforward creatures of habit, can be domesticated by rewarding the desired behavior. For most men, this comes down to food, sex, and lying around on the couch watching TV. Give us what we want and we’re happy.
