Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Seeing Leonidas' cats and dogs perform without a whip or other form of castigation, and in many instances without any apparent orders or direction, almost makes one wonder if it can be real, or some sort of fake. The footballing dog is 'even better than Barnum's'.
