"As we began working with Margaret and Ruth we quickly realized they were of an entirely new caliber compared to any of the rescuers and trainers we had previously dealt with. We were immediately impressed with their organizational skills, professionalism, and their empathetic no nonsense approach to animal rescue. As we spent more time with them in group training classes and private sessions to work on specific behaviors we were consistently amazed by their ability to shape behavior through a calm, assertive, positive approach to troubled dogs.
I’ve heard it said before that dogs as a species have a special, perhaps unique ability to forgive, to forget, to overcome, to connect us to nature, and to love without condition; all with an aptitude that many humans would struggle to match. They live utterly in the moment and encourage us to do the same. Perhaps not surprisingly, Margaret and Ruth have incorporated these same values in their approach to animal rescue."
" As new pet parents of a rescued dog, we had an amazing experience training our furbaby with ARC's Rescues team. Their continuous patience and extensive knowledge of dogs' behaviour made us feel safe and confident to build a better relationship and understanding with our dog. Margaret and Ruth were great teachers, along with their supportive team of volunteers. We highly recommend this training program for any dog parents! ."
" ARC is an incredible resource that supports both you as the human and your dog! No matter the state your dog is in, they are able to give concrete and honest suggestions to ensure positive and successful training. While I recognize that my knowledge of training is quite low (ok, non-existent), there was never a time that they made me feel inadequate. They meet your dog where they are at (for mine, quite low and anxious) and show such love and compassion. I was recommended to ARC from someone else with the feedback of "they won't sugar coat it like some other trainers", which proved to be accurate" and so appreciated. I would fully endorse this program. It is both affordable and incredibly helpful!
"What I liked most about training my dog with Margaret and Ruth is the patience and encouragement of the instructors; simple strategies, good teaching."
"I liked the small dog to trainer ratios and the extra helpers."
"I admit that I was not a superhero until I joined ARC. After joining, it was the first time I felt that I could change the world forever with my strength, just because I was taught to see things from the animals' perspectives."
"Good mix of practice and instruction! Great class."
