Sometimes it’s hard to be a dog owner. With few regulations on what qualifies a dog trainer, inhumane items on the shelves, and trying to navigate through the “wild west” of dog ownership is frustrating. However, Dog-Harmony is here to help!
Our nonprofit offers workshops and low-cost training classes to help you be a better dog owner.
There is a direct correlation to how we treat our pets and how we treat each other.
Knowing this, Dog-Harmony offers a class to teach children responsible pet ownership, compassion, and to make an emotional connection with their FURever friend.
The 30-minute class includes how to approach dogs, proper ways to interact, train, and how to understand your dog’s body language. These classes can be taught at Dog-Harmony’s headquarters, civic organizations, and schools. They can be taught with or without the use of a live animal.
*Children receive dog and human harmony

Our kids and canine camps are custom 3-hour programs designed specifically for each group. Each camp teaches responsible pet ownership, compassion, and team building. Our camps are great for at-risk youth or individuals with disabilities. We offer the camps quarterly for ages 6-12 years old and limit class capacity to 15 kids. Check out our events page for dates.
Get your kids excited about reading and schedule a time in the Dog-Harmony reading room! Bring your own book or choose from some of our favorites. Dogs used in this program are Dog-Harmony alumni or dogs in training for R.E.A.D. programs through Intermountain Therapy.

Dog-Harmony offers free training advice for rescued dogs with behavioral problems, such as jumping, leash pulling, potty training and separation anxiety.
Training advice is offered by Nancy Bown, Dog-Harmony’s founder and Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT – KA). Bown can help over the phone, or better yet, after meeting the pet at Dog-Harmony headquarters at 237 Market Street in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. No shock collars or choke collars are used and Bown is a force-free trainer.
