Description: Raja Shah worked with troubled dogs. His most difficult case was Penny, a 40-pound pitbull. Indoors, Penny just sat, head down and moaning, while outside she was terrified. Raja was the last in a line of multiple trainers who had tried their hand on Penny. Slowly he worked up her confidence and gained her trust. Eventually Penny became so focused on Raja's commands that she forgot her fear when out on the street. Raja became her main focus.
