Arrow Dog & Puppy Training
I’m Lori Barnabe, founder of Arrow Dog and Puppy Training. I started Arrow for dogs and puppies of all backgrounds, but I have a particular interest in special needs shelter dogs.
During my years as a County Animal Control Officer and later a Registered Veterinary Technician for a Municipal Animal Shelter, I saw first hand what led former guardians to turn their dogs over to public agencies. I also learned what kind of treatment could turn a dog’s behavior around and get them a second chance at becoming the lovable companions dogs want to be. My goal is to ensure that each dog who attends class at Arrow becomes a cherished and permanent member of their family, and a source of pride for its guardians.
With that goal in mind, before the actual training sessions begin, I develop an individual program for each student; a program that recognizes and considers a dog’s whole environment; physical, emotional, and spiritual. I like to think of this as a “Whole-istic” approach.
