Dog-Harmony is a non-profit 501(c)3 dedicated to reducing the shelter dog population through ongoing humane education. Founded by professional dog trainer Nancy Bown, CPDT-KA, our non-profit works to build positive relationships between canines and humans – preventing dogs from becoming homeless in the first place.

What makes us different?

In addition to training dogs, we work to “train” the public and pet parents. For adoptions, individualized attention is given before, during and after to make sure the new family has the right tools to build a successful life together. The key element is education – of humans and dogs, no matter what age.

Shelter Outreach

In addition to educational programs for the public, we are dedicated to being an educational resource hub for shelters and shelter volunteers. Our educational library contains several easy to find, reliable links and resources. We also host educational symposiums and lectures designed to meet the needs of local shelters. These programs are free for shelter workers to attend and made possible through grants, donations, and support from our volunteers and sponsors.

Community Shelter Assistance and Consulting Program

Furthering our mission to support shelters and with resources compiled by credentialed dog trainers and with three volunteer certified behavior consultants, we’ve developed a new community shelter assistance and consulting program with five methods of assistance:

  1. Live Educational Resources
  2. Free Access to Dog-Harmony Life Magazine
  3. Free Access to Enrichment Toys
  4. Access to Additional Resources
  5. Complimentary Training
