Learn To Train and Pamper Your Dog In Northwest Arkansas

About This Episode:

If you own a dog, there is nothing like being greeted when you come home by the sound of a happy bark and being licked to death.  Northwest Arkansas is home to many pet owners, and we decided to sit down with local dog trainer Denise Holmes from Love Trust Teach and Travel Tails. Denise is an expert in communicating and training our four-legged canine friends.  You can learn how she became a dog trainer and why she is excited about the strong pet culture here in Northwest Arkansas. Learn about all the best dog parks to every local pet event where pampering your dog is the primary focus; Denise shares it all. 

So, if you are like Denise and you like to take your dog everywhere with you or even travel with your furry friend, this episode will reveal all of the dog-friendly establishments in Northwest Arkansas, and we learned that there are a lot of them.  

All this and more on this week’s episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.

Signature Bank of Arkansas –  

Signature Bank was founded here in Northwest Arkansas in 2005. Their focus is personal and community banking. When you bank with a community bank, you’re investing in local businesses, local entrepreneurs, local charities, and the causes close to home. Signature Bank has worked hard to earn its tagline, “Community Banking at its Best.”

Finally, they are constantly improving their digital offerings to ensure you can access the best financial tools from your laptop, phone, or tablet 24 hours a day.

Signature Bank of Arkansas is a full-service bank offering traditional checking and savings accounts, investment accounts, business and personal loans, and mortgages.
