  • The BEST!!!! Nicole More than one year ago.
    The BEST!!!!

    I have been using the services from harmonious hounds for over a year now and life has been great. What a relief to find reliable, competent individuals to care for my animals while I work or go away for a weekend. I have used and continue to use their dog walking services as well as the overnight service and some training. In all cases both Lauren and Tim were extremely professional and the service provided was superb. I have thrown a lot at them in terms of scheduling, another dog, etc and in all cases they were able to meet and exceed my expectations. They provide updates while away, let me know how their walks were and have also given me the heads up on a few eye/ear infections. I really can't say enough great things about harmonious hounds. If your pets are part of your family like mine are and you are looking for some help rest assured these two will get job done!

  • Highly Recommend Allison More than one year ago.
    Highly Recommend

    I became involved with Harmonious Hounds, Inc. in November '11 due to a food aggression issue between my dog and my roommate's dog. Their aggression had slowly progressed to the point of minor injuries between the dogs and I unfortunately was bitten in an attempt to break up one of their fights. Given the sensitive nature of this issue I wanted to be sure whoever worked with us in training was not only qualified but also compassionate. Lauren possesses both of these qualities. She is extremely knowledgeable of animals and training methods. Her philosophy focuses on praise and positive reinforcement which leaves you feeling productive and optimistic about the training process. She is dedicated to the pets and owners she works with, following up on sessions with check-ins via email and phone and being available for questions and/or concerns. She is also organized and provides homework assignments/written information in addition to modeling to aid in the training and understanding of presenting issues. Months later after the completion of training my dog continues to progress in basic training learned with Lauren and, although precautions are still taken with food, there have not been any more injuries and both dogs exhibit less anxiety in the presence of food. If you are looking for professionals to work with you and your pet that are caring and enjoy what they do, I highly recommend Lauren and Harmonious Hounds, Inc.

  • Awesome Services Gail More than one year ago.
    Awesome Services

    I have been very pleased with the full array of services provided by Harmonious Hounds. Following a comprehensive assessment, an individualized training program was developed to assist with my reactive German Shepard. With Lauren's guidance and positive reinforment trainign techniques, I am able to confidently walk my dog anywhere now, without the stress I previously felt always wondering when I was going to encounter another dog. I have also completed group classes with Lauren for Really Reliable Recall and continue to strenghten this invalubale skill with my dog. Additionally, I have engaged Harmonious Hounds for Pet Sitting and use their dog walking services on a regular bass. I have found Harmonious Hounds to provide professional, conscientious, and compassionate care and I look forward to using their services for a long time to come. I truly appreciate the quality of care provided by Lauren and Tim and the peace of mind afforded to me because of their quality services. I know my dog is enjoying an improved quality of life and enjoys the time she spends with Lauren and Tim. I would recommend the services of Harmonious Hounds to any pet owner.

    Perfect

    Lauren and Harmonious Hounds have been lifesavers. I have two very restless cats, and with my travel requirements they are frequently in the home alone. Lauren takes care of them on the weekends and over my longer trips, and my cats are constatnly the better for it. Not only does she do a great job taking care of them, but she provides constant updates on their status through emails, phonecalls, and text messages. She also takes photos of them and videos on longer trips, and I can't tell you how valuable her feedback is. Great service, very reasonable rates, and a heart of gold - you can't go wrong with Lauren.

    Puppy Saviour

    I had contacted Lauren after my papillion pup was driving me crazy with nuisance behaviors. I have two other dogs and neither of them behaved this way. He also is prone to car sickness so it was imperative I found someone to come to the house. Lauren came to my home and did an evaluation on Austin and started a few weeks after. I can honestly say now that we are a few months into training, my pup is a whole new dog!! He is calm (most of the time..lol) he's throwing default bahaviors at us, and he is generally a whole new dog. I cant thank Lauren enough for saving us grief and helping US to help Austin be the dog we wanted. Now they even look forward to her coming over!! Lauren is knowledgeable, takes her time, very informative, and best of all she is a great person who loves animals as much as we do!

  • Great Training and Puppy Classes Kristine More than one year ago.
    Great Training and Puppy Classes

    I took my labrador puppy to these classes and we finished about a month ago. I was 110% satisfied with the program. The trainer, Lauren, is extremely knowledgeable and taught me numerous positive methods to train my puppy that I will continue to use throughout her lifetime. In regards to the facilities and the space for training, the puppy class that I attended was held at my favorite local pet store, Mellisa's Pet Depot, and was quite accomodating and convenient for me. I would absolutely recoommend Harmonious Hounds to anyone!!

    This service is a bit of a joke they have no training space and zero facilities. If you want someone to tie your dog out in their yard call harmonious hounds. What a joke!!
