    1. This was the first novel I read by this author, and it certainly wasn't the last. I purchased the novel at a bookstore back in 2002, and after just reading a few chapters, I went back and got every title she had available at the time. Over the years, I've watched for her, waiting for another novel. Fourteen years later, and I've read this one several times. The novel is well-written and has an amazing cast of characters that along with the humor come alive on every page.



    2. So, ceritanya sangat simpel, tentang Liv yang notabene punya hidup serbaoke itu. Tunangan yang oke, pekerjaan sebagai akuntan, terus sahabat yang luar biasa sempurna. Di hari nyaris pernikahannya, tiba-tiba saja Tim membatalkan semuanya. Liv frustasi, dan menurut anjuran bossnya, Fay, akhirnya dia memutuskan buat ambil cuti dan berlibur di Australia. Nah, petulangannya pun dimulai, apalagi kala dia mengidam-idamkan untuk kembali ke sembilan tahun silam saat bertemu dengan cinta pertamanya saat b [...]


    3. Dog Handling was a great book. It's not the first book by Clare Naylor that I've read, but it is the first one that falls mostly under rom-com. It has all the elements for a great story and Ms. Naylor does a great job at making them work. There were just two things that I didn't particularly enjoy much. 1)Rampant infidelity. I know it's now become a staple to fiction these days, but I still find it hard to overlook or condone, and 2)Instant love/attraction. Ben sees Liv after a prolonged period [...]


    4. Liv is about to get married and all she can think about are other men rather than her husband to be. So when her fiance breaks it off, she heads to down under to find out what she's been missing. She meets James and Dave who teach her the secrets to keeping a man, which is to treat them like a dog. Things of course, go awry when she bumps into an old flame.Notes: I think "sampling the soup and licking the cones" (in reference to relationships) is about the strangest and funniest line I've ever r [...]


    5. Thiss once more,, about the girl who cancel the weddingi wonder why this lately people like to made the story about people who broke up after engange. its strange, and mostly they broke after prepare for the wedding party. and tim is so silly, he broke liv after he propose her and said that he not love her anymore. I mean, if u dont love her, why u propose her? u must think it carefuly before make the big decision! it just break her heart apart.oh well,,but this story is quite funny, and about l [...]


    6. how many times have you ever said 'men are dogs!' after a particularly bad break up?well, liv puts it to the testwhat if men really are dogsd what if you treat them like they're dogs? after her fiancee breaks of their marrige and she looses her job, liv's best friend decides that some australian sun is exactly what she needs. and who does she meet there? the man she lost her virginity to, the most handsome man she's ever met, and the man of her dreams (literally) - Ben Parker. liv's got nothing [...]


    7. Getting around the odd colloquialisms that made reading this book a bit of a head-scratcher, I found myself pleasantly entertained by Liv’s constant efforts to turn around her life after getting dumped by her fiancé. Misunderstandings, sleeping with the wrong guys, sleeping with the right one, falling in and out of love and lust while trying to start a fledgling business provided a few tender moments. This wasn’t a ribald, gut-busting joyride by any means; Liv isn’t the type of heroine wi [...]


    8. Light and fluffy. Decent. I picked this up after struggling with Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth." I needed a light distraction, and this gave it to me. Parts of it are totally impossible (Greta's Grundies being such an easy business launch, notably), but what can you expect from chick lit? The author also wrote "The First Assistant" and "The Second Assistant" with Mimi Hare. Both of those books were enjoyable.


    9. This was the first novel I read by this author, and it certainly wasn't the last. I purchased the novel at a bookstore back in 2002, and after just reading a few chapters, I went back and got every title she had available at the time. Over the years, I've watched for her, waiting for another novel. Fourteen years later, and I've read this one several times. The novel is well-written and has an amazing cast of characters that along with the humor come alive on every page. I absolutely LOVED this [...]


    10. I just reread this book for a second time, having read it for the first time a decade ago. It's your typical chick lit, but it's fun. Who can argue with a girl who has her heart broken, conveniently jets off to Australia to find herself again, and happens to run into the heartthrob guy she had a teenage summer love affair with? A quick, fun read for sure. It's a fun compliment to have just read Why Men Love Bitches.


    11. Note- no dogs in this book despite the name. The main character is English but most of the book takes place in Sidney, Australia which means it is rich with English and Australian words and phrases such as ones most of us have heard - the loo, the bin, getting knackered, and then sprinkle in "will you please pass me a dunny roll" and meeting a "jackeroo" and it was entertaining even if the story line was just okay.


    12. Great book. Lots of fun. Once again the main character of this novel moves from London, but this time it is to Australia, to get over her recent breakup. While there she runs into an old fling who she always hoped to see again someday, only now he is seeing someone else. She meets some friends who have the idea that she can win him back if all she does is treat him like a dogwhich she accidently ends up doing. A very fun beach read.


    13. If I could I'd give it two and a half stars. It was okay, it wasn't terrible. Tended to yammer on quite a bit, I'm more of a get to the point gal. But when it takes a whole paragraph to say what they could of in one sentence I start to skip ahead. When I read a book I want to be so immersed in it I devour every word. Would I read it again, probably not. Wouldn't be my first choice to reread. But it wasn't a regretful buy since I got it at a huge bargain sale.


    14. Books like this give chicklit a bad name. The characters are stupid and play stupid, immature games. The dog handling idea is ridiculous and not the main purpose of the book. I would like this book better if the dog handling was dropped and was just a book about a heartbroken girl going to Australia.


    15. I was partway through this book before I realized that I had read it before - which tells you how memorable it is, I guess! It's a perfectly nice fluffy light read, good for the beach and all that, but there's not much to it. Some of the characters are fun and interesting, but the premise isn't exactly fresh.


    16. This is a story about recovery after a bad breakup, reinventing of self and reigniting an old flame. It was also about knowing how to handle men (or dogs, same thing!) in order to keep them coming back for more. This was a fun read, although I do have to say that there wasn't really anything special about it. However, it was enjoyable and effortless to read. -indifferent


    17. It was chick lit, so it was a fun, light story, but it had an edge that was a little different than usual. I liked that it was set in Australia--that was a little different and a nice variation from the typical English settings. I could've done without the drug references, though. There weren't many, but I think the story would've been just fine without any! I enjoyed the ending.


    18. This was a find about a woman who was wondering if she was ready for marriage when her fiance dumped her. She then follows her best friend to Australia where she had adventures learning about herself and men. This book was okay, but there was a point in the middle where I was wondering what I should have been rooting for her to do.


    19. Characters lacked some charm for me. Often the characters in a romantic comedy like this one are quirky and so are these. They are clueless about love and so are these, and they are often funny/witty and these lacked that for me. I didn't find these characters charming or funny.


    20. This book was like watching a cheesy, made-for-tv, Lifetime network romance movie. The ludicrous yet romance-filled plot kept me turning the pages but when I got to the end I kinda wondered why I had bothered.


    21. such a crazy chicklit for single and happy woman Raring to help her land beautiful Ben, Liv's friends teach her the Rules of Dog Handling: Treat a man like a dog and he'll be eating out of your hand.


    22. Not so good. Bad grammer, bad charactors names, and nothing exciting happened at all. Sorry I wasted my time reaing it. It was an English writer and maybe these are the types of books they write and the way the speak, but I found it confusing and boring.


    23. This book was hilarious. I laughed so hard, even out loud that sometimes I got looks from strangers while reading in the park. Claire Naylor knows how to lift a mood when she talks about everything this poor woman goes through. If you are having a gloomy day, this book is a total pick you up.


    24. It was a cute story line, I thought a little juvenile and totally unrealistic - I mean, seriously, if it were that easy to run off to Australia and start an underwear company, why wouldn't we all be Victoria's Secret. But fun.


    25. Good humor, but story line is a lot like other 'I just broke off my wedding and am looking to rediscover my inner woman-hunger in a foreign country with my carefree gorgeous friend who attracts all the men for me' books I've read or been recommended.


    26. I thought I would like this book because I loved the other 2 books this author co-wrote, Second & First Assistant those two books are so awesome! I read 5 chapters & could not get into it! Had to drop it like it's hot.


    27. Best Chicklit Book I have read!!! Better than BJD! ChickLit with a little substance and not too cheesy. GREAT BEACH READ!


    28. I enjoyed this book a great deal. I read it on vacation. It was typical chick lit. Characters were fun. Plot predictable, but fun!
