Synopsis

Chantal's Parisian mother hands her a dog-training manual as the secret recipe for making a husband happy. "You must treat him like a dog," she warns. So Chantal is soon trying such directions as: "Praise him when he is learning to fetch and carry." "Make the words 'come here' mean something pleasurable." "Be sure to frolic with your pet a part of every day." Chantal is doing fine in spite of the exotic models who swarm about her husband's studio until her friend Tina, a triple threat from Boston, comes to visit her. Chantal confides the secret of her happy marriage to Tina, who promptly tips off Chantal's husband. Fireworks follow!
