Hello there, I hope you don’t mind me writing to you, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the advice and help we (my dog and I) got from your books

My dog is a German Shepherd called Jay Jay, as you said, when we went to look at the litter of puppies we chose one who didn’t run straight over to us, he was laying there quite happy then came over for a cuddle

From then on we followed your lead, having a few problems on the way but getting over them super quick

He is now 2 and is the most wonderful dog on the planet, he’s happy with his place in the pack, he’s super content, he’s an absolute joy to our family

This is partly down to him being a superstar dog and partly down to you, so thank you

He has also helped me out a lot in a personal POV, I suffer from agoraphobia and for months back there I didn’t go out or talk to anyone, but Jay was always there.

after a while Jay and I would go out when it was quiet and he’d stay by my side, having him there really helped and now there’s no stopping us! Donna Taylor-Walton
