Reception and Security
We believe that every dog will have his day and at iHR Advisory Services, Arthur is living his best life every day.

Arthur enjoys welcoming both human and canine guests, although he does screen newcomers who arrive unexpectedly. He has been known to work like a dog but balances that lifestyle with daily runs, swimming, healthy meals, and social activities in nature.
