Teaching your old dog new tricks simply requires the right treat--so goes the story of Dog Training the American Male, a riotous romp through relationships of the young, the old, and the restless. . . . Comedic newcomer L.A. Knight offers a fresh farce replete with a cast of well-drawn characters, fast-paced wit, and merging cinematic storylines that triumph as a novel, but would feel equally right on a London stage, as a Netflix original, or in a theater near you. Dog Training is a new look at age-old male-female quandaries, but also a book for mature readers that will find more than one male looking at himself--and suddenly realizing why he's so eager to help with the dishes. (The Mountain Times)
Laugh out loud funny! What really makes this book connect with everyone is that men and women have been trying to change, or at least understand, each other for centuries, and this book takes a different approach to that issue. . . .Both sexes will enjoy this quirky take.(ManhattanWithATwist.com)
A spirited romp through a peculiar carnival of fascinatingly fresh and ultimately irresistible characters. (The Examiner)

This is definitely NOT your usual romantic comedy romp between the sheets and the relationship. It started kinda slow to me... but it is a very funny premise about a man and woman and a dog. The woman is a radio talk show host and a psychologist. Her radio show is about relationships and it is doing poorly. Nancy has issues with men, to say the least. She moves in with her boyfriend, Jacob, he gets a dog and the dog is out of control so she hires a dog trainer.
The heroine, Nancy Beach, hires two dog trainers to help with the German Shepherd pound puppy five years old and not fixed. Then she decides to use the training tools she is learning on the dog with the man and it works for a short time. And what ensues is kinda kooky, crazy and just plain funny. What woman is not frustrated with trying to domesticate the male Y chromosomes in her life and becomes so fed up with trying that she will go to any lengths to get there? As a woman, I think that women can definitely relate to this tale about the Extreme Makeover of the Male of the species.
There are a lot of quirky characters and hilarious situations that are laugh out loud funny ...
I enjoyed this book so much that I even had to read parts of it to my boyfriend because I couldn't keep the laughs to myself.
I cannot wait for another L.A. Knight book!
