|“Jeanie Collins spent five sessions with our one year old fox terrier, Angus, and transformed him from a puppy who was utterly out of control into a sub-adult male who not only obeys all the normal commands but who will, among other unlikely tricks, exhibit the extent of his self-restraint by lying with a piece of steak between his paws (“don’t touch”) until he is eventually allowed to “get it.” Considering his behavior prior to Jeanie’s training, this is nothing short of a miracle.
