When this year began, none of us could have imagined how much our world would change, the anxiety and loss so many of us would feel, or the strength and resilience with which our community would respond to these unprecedented challenges. It is impossible to overstate how much your continued support has meant to us. We are so pleased that we were able to offer safe, modified services that helped you continue to work toward your training goals.
As our state makes plans to move forward, Dogs in Harmony will continue to offer modified services that are aligned with the changing community guidelines. Although our community is starting to open up and regulations are loosening, we recognize that this is by no means behind us, and it will be some time before we all feel safe enough to resume our normal routines. In order to accommodate the changing needs of our community, we have modified our service offerings to allow for an expanded range of learning opportunities while still focusing on the health and safety of our valued clients.
These new services will be available for enrollment today, and new classes will begin June 9th.
Dog only drop-off for day training, socialization, and the development needs of your young dog. Harmony School is an intensive training program ideal for puppies under 4 month of age. Our goal is to create the best possible family dog. We take full advantage of the critical socialization period (first 4 months of life). This is a unique time in a dogs life where they can adjust quickly to new things and can use that information later on in life. Most behavioral problems that arise in adult dogs are due to lack of socialization. At Harmony School we positively associate puppies to dogs, people, objects, sounds, textures and handling. Giving puppies the best possible start in life. Families with dogs in our day school need to continue working with their dogs at home.
Dogs over the age of 4 months must be evaluated and approved to attend Harmony School. School Hours are Tuesday - Friday, 9 am - 2 pm.
Outdoor Private Lessons (With Humans!)
As shelter orders begin to lift, we are able to offer outdoor private lessons with you and your dog. This outdoor option allows you to learn with your dog while maintaining social distancing.
Safety is our priority, and masks will be required for these outdoor lessons.
Dog Only Group Classes
Dogs enrolled in group lessons will be divided into groups according to temperament, play style, training level and age. In class dogs will learn proper edict of multiple dog training sessions, meaning that dogs will be on a stay while not activity working with their trainer and will rotate through individual training sessions, group training sessions and play.
These sessions will provide much needed mental stimulation and impulse control.
One on one training session. This is ideal for dogs that are extremely distracted by other dogs, are new to training or are reactive to other dogs. These sessions are tailored for the unique needs of your dog to help you achieve your training goals.
Virtual Private and Group Classes
Due to popularity, and to accommodate those who wish to continue their training from the comfort and safety of their homes, we will continue offering Virtual Lesson appointments on weekends. In these virtual sessions, you can train privately to work on your specific goals, or learn along with a small group of others who are at a similar training level.
