Arrow Weiser, Owner he/they
Arrow is a reactivity specialist with a BS in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Animal Behavior concentrated in dogs.
Arrow started working with dogs in 2013 while they were living in New York City. He started "WeiserWalks", and walked dogs in Manhattan's Upper West Side.
Arrow's specialty is working with dogs that exhibit reactive behaviors. Through training, Arrow loves seeing dogs go from reactive to relaxed. Arrow believes that dog collaberation is about putting your ego aside, having self-awareness, understanding each dog's feelings, and positively communicating with dogs to bridge the communication gap.
Arrow began volunteering at the Dogs Trust Manchester while receiving their Masters's Degree in Animal Behavior in Manchester, United Kingdom. This is where Arrow was able to continue his knowledge of behavior, and training.
Arrow's MSc thesis was at the Dog's Trust Manchester and Manchester Dogs Home about how A Positive environment and Enrichment Program in Dog Shelters Strengthens Canine Behavior and Adoption Rates. Arrow's thesis concentrated on how dog behavior is dependent upon the environment, training techniques, and enrichment programs implemented in shelters.
