Read an Excerpt

Communicate your love with touch.

Gentle strokes and playful petting are positive motivational techniques for instilling good behavior.

Always say NO clearly, so there's no mistaking what you mean. In time, you should be able to communicate your inner thoughts with a simple look.

Never wait to act on punishment. To communicate effectively, you must punish directly after the misbehavior; i.e., immediately rub his nose in the mess he's made. No doubt about it. Next time he'll think twice before giving you shit.

    Responding to Dice83@hotmail.com

    To dice83@hotmail.com: Get a life!!! This book is funny, and done in extremely good humor. People like you should work in mortuarys because you sound like a stiff. When men make fun of women it's always ok, but when the tables are turned all the 'whiney' men start moaning. Go take a nap.

    A Book for Man Haters

    What an offensive way to speak of men. As if we have the mentality of real dogs! If a woman tried such tactics on me, she'd be on all fours with a leash around her neck shouting woof! woof!

    a fine book! still laughing... haw haw!

    hilarious! such a creative and good natured picture book-- it made it to 'three cheers and five whoops' at a recent dinner party. if only men could be so docile =D (this, said from a male's perspective at that). a good gift for those with a thick and robust sense of humour.

    Book makes a good wedding joke gift

    Read this book and now I give it to many new brides. The book is witty and yes some of the jokes are over the top. What else would you expect from a book with a title like this. This book is not for the PC types but it is for those people who love to laugh.
