Harmonious Hounds, LLC. is the premier provider for dog training and pet care in both Bristol County, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
We pride ourselves on giving you peace of mind in all of your pet training and sitting needs.
Our goal is to provide safe and humane services that allow you and your pets to live harmoniously and make the most of every day. We offer an array of services to fit the life of the busy pet owner, which include group obedience classes, in-home training, puppy socialization, dog walking/running, and in-your-home pet sitting.
Our company is fully insured and staffed by trained professionals with years of animal care experience. We specialize in the training and walking of reactive or harder-to-manage dogs, as well as the care of exotic pets. Having a zookeeper on staff who has cared for and trained everything from rhinos, snow leopards, and macaques, to pythons, toads and tarantulas is a true asset!
Have you ever tried to train an animal ten times your size, with cage bars between you and it? It doesn't speak English, and you cannot force it to do anything; in fact, you can't even touch it!
As a zookeeper, you learn pretty quickly that the only successful way to work with this animal is to use scientifically-based methods, centered on how animals learn and why they do what they do. It focuses on rewarding positive, desired behaviors and ignoring or redirecting unwanted ones. This same training philosophy is what our company uses to teach you and your dog friend to communicate with each other, and build a relationship based on respect and teamwork.
With options for group classes or one-on-one, private training, we will work with you to achieve your training goals, and leave both you and your dog with a better understanding of one another.
From pet care to training, Harmonious Hounds provides educated, compassionate and trustworthy care that you can count on. We strive to tailor our experience to you, and provide regular opportunities for feedback and input as to how we can improve you and your pet's experience.
