Down, Boy! is a tongue-in-cheek guide to breaking in a new boyfriend. It's a comprehensive manual that covers the finer points of finding a boyfriend (for example, the "rescue" from an entirely inappropriate woman); the major boyfriend groups and breeds (sporting, hound, working, terrier, toy); how to identify them and choose the one that best fits your needs and lifestyle; and guidelines for first dates and bonding with a new boyfriend. Also explored in depth are the types of training: behavior (Pavlovian and Skinnerian), obedience, and activity; rewards and punishments; establishing communication, including basic commands as well as nonverbal cues; exercise, feeding, and grooming of the boyfriend; and determining when he's ready to go "off-leash," with tips for taking him out. Down, Boy! is funny, hip, and content-rich. Enhanced with quizzes, charts, FAQs, and (fictitious) advice from Elizabeth Taylor (the only woman known to have married a man from each breed), it's a lively read and even includes some solid, practical advice for starting and maintaining a romantic relationship. Give Down, Boy! prominent space in your humor, self-help, or relationship section, and it's sure to attract attention.
