Trainer (and Dog-Harmony founder) Nancy Bown graduated from the Animal Behavior College in Southern California with a certification in dog training and now acts as a mentor for student dog trainers. She is a certified dog trainer (CPDT-KA) as recognized by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and a member of the professional organization. She is also an instructor and evaluator for Intermountain Therapy Animals as well as an evaluator for the AKC Good Citizen Test. Her training methods are positive with no prong or electric collars.

Dog-Harmony practices LIMA principles as recommended by the Association of Behavior Veterinarians.  No shock, prong or choke will ever be used in group classes, specialized clinics or individual training. To see our available classes and sign up, visit our classes and clinics page. Training is available for dogs of all levels and ages.

Nancy is available inhouse or at our facility in Santa Rosa Beach for private lessons at a rate of $110 per session. We offer a lower rate than most area trainers to support Dog-Harmony’s mission of keeping dogs in the home through education. If you are interested in private training, please contact us at hello@dog-harmony.org.
