Here's What We've Been Working On
In addition to our on-going programs, we've recently ramped up our commitment to humane education and shelter enrichment.

1. Live Educational Resources
We’ve started working with Amanda Rietheimer, a Certified Animal Behavior Consultant and 12-year veteran Animal Control Officer, of Behavior Focus of Houston to host monthly question and answer sessions to be streamed live at the Dog-Harmony building. Shelters can send their workers or volunteers to the event free of charge to receive accurate, science-based information and answers about dog behavior. You can check out our latest classes and events here!

2. Free Access to Dog-Harmony Life
As you read through our new magazine, Dog-Harmony Life, you’ll find that it holds a wealth of information for dog owners, both seasoned and beginners. So, we’re offering complimentary copies of Dog-Harmony Life to shelters and rescues between Bay and Escambia counties for their adoption packages. We’re also happy to ship copies to rescues and shelters outside of this market for just shipping costs.

3. Free Access to Enrichment Toys
Our volunteers have been hard at work crafting snuffle mats which is a brain game for dogs. These mats can be used for feeding or simply just enrichment time. They provide hours of stimulating entertainment to dogs, helping to alleviate stress and keep shelter dogs happy. We’re providing these tools to shelters and rescues in the area for free.

4. Access to Additional Resources
Dog-Harmony has a vast amount of educational and training resources on its website, but we know that situations can arise where rescues and shelters will have additional questions. So, if we can’t pair them with an online resource, we’ll do the research ourselves to be able to provide them with credible, fact-based information.

5. Complimentary Training
If a shelter or rescue has a non-aggression-related situation where a dog needs additional training in order to stay in a happy, healthy home, Dog-Harmony will provide a complimentary one-hour session at Dog-Harmony headquarters.

Again, all of this will be offered to shelters and rescues free of charge, as this program will be funded through grants and the generous donations and sponsorships from our supporters. We’re so excited to get started with this program, so if you know of a shelter or rescue that could benefit from this, or if you’d like to learn more, please email me at hello@dog-harmony.org
