"You have liberated me from a lifetime fear. I have had Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy, but it did not come anywhere near close to what happened today. Its hard

"I did not think my fear of dogs would be resolved in one training session!
I believe this was possible through the excellent interpersonal skills and
friendliness of the trainers"
"I stroked a Rottweiler!!"
