Meet the Guest 

Nancy Bown joins Shantelle on this week’s episode of the Hello Frances podcast to talk about Dog-Harmony, a nonprofit organization she founded in 2015. As a dog trainer, Nancy saw many dogs being surrendered and began research to discover why this continued to happen. The missing component was education. After this discovery, she started Dog-Harmony to reduce the shelter dog population through ongoing humane education.

Cliff Notes 

Shantelle shares her personal experience of working with Nancy and Dog-Harmony to adopt her dog, Maggie. They discuss the importance of having ongoing support after adoption as the dog and family both adapt to their new environment. Nancy shares her outlook on the importance of recognizing canine body language, integrating children with dogs at a young age, and more.
