Welcome to Harlow School for Dogs!

Private dog training & behavior consulting for dogs & their families in the DMV area

We focus on relationship building between pups and owners, while teaching dogs how to be successful in our world. 

We're located in NW Washington, DC and operate throughout the DMV area. Training takes place in the client's home or location of choice (with all COVID-19 safety precautions in mind). Virtual consultations also available! Unsure whether or not we'll travel to you? Send us a message & let us know where you are!


What we're about

Harlow School for Dogs meets families & dogs where they are - we understand that it can be hard to find time to train your dog, and are committed to developing training plans that fit specifically with your dog & family needs.

We strive to set everyone up for success, humans and dogs included, and use only the least intrusive training methods available - meaning that we avoid punishment based training methods using coercion, force, or fear.

Certifications include Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP) and Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). We believe that knowledge is power and are always learning more - continuing education including Dr. Friedman's Living and Learning With Animals course, Karen Pryor Academy's Puppy Start Right course, and more!
