  1. Can ARC's "training center" really be called a training center if they are unable to rehabilitate some dogs? I have spoken with the head trainer and she proudly proclaimed to me that some dogs have been there several years. So, in reality it is either a detention center for dogs who cannot be rehabilitated or their training methods are not good.

    If it is the former, than a I would hope the quality of life for the dogs is a good one. Open runs, no cages, letting dogs be a part of a family pack. If the latter then I hope ARC is able to become a little more open minded when evaluating trainers and methodology.

    For your consideration: You can fast forward to the 3:28 mark in the video.
