Dog whisperer cures agoraphobic Labrador

An agoraphobic dog who feared walkies has been cured by a dog whisperer.

Eighteen-month-old chocolate Labrador Jack would freeze and become "really distressed" every time the front door opened.

But he overcame his fear with the help of dog-whisperer Lynne Marshall, who coaxed him out of the house with psychological techniques.

Jack's owner, Judy Huddleston, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "He's absolutely loving it. He's acting like a dog, taking everything in and it's just lovely to see him."
