Thanks to you Murphy is now a happy, confident,
sociable, loyal, obedient, gentle, calm and loving dog who brings
us so much pleasure every day. I recommend you to every dog owner
'You do not need to lose your head for worry or have to keep your
dog permanently on a lead for fear of letting her go. Mike can
provide a solution.'

caused least stress to our pets.
