Paws ‘N’ Play is proud to host group dog training classes by Harmonious Hounds, LLC. Harmonious Hounds has been providing humane, compassionate training and pet care services to South Coast Massachusetts since 2011.

Trainers Lauren Stamatis and Tim Riendeau bring the latest, cutting-edge advances in animal learning theory to your dog training class. As a former zookeeper, Lauren employed these same techniques to train everything from porcupines to leopards early in her career. Likewise, as a former school teacher, Tim helps families understand how learning is universal for both humans and dogs alike.

Their classes focus on teaching you how to develop real-life skills for dealing with problem behaviors, instilling polite manners, and effectively communicating with your canine companion. Classes vary from four to six weeks in length and emphasize different levels and aspects of dog manners. Please visit their website for class descriptions, prices, and registration. Please contact them with questions, they would be happy to hear from you!


Paws ‘N’ Play offers professional grooming to all daycare and boarding dogs by appointment only. For more information on this service, please inquire with the caretaker when picking up your dog from daycare.
