Obedience training with Janet McMillan saved my dog's life. When my black lab mix puppy, Indy, got spooked, wriggled out of her collar and backed into the first lane of traffic on a busy street, I thought she was a goner. The car in that lane stopped and waited as she sat frozen in the middle of the lane, pleading to me with her eyes to do something. I thought about it and told her to "come". Because Janet had helped me teach Indy to respond to "come", she jumped up and came right to me.
