Know you’re heading in the right direction
The same positive training methods as top dog trainers
The Harper curriculum is designed in collaboration with animal behaviorists and leading force-free trainers. That means it uses positive reinforcement: well-timed rewards to encourage behaviors we want instead of punishing what we don’t. It’s the same approach as top dog trainers like Zak George, Susan Garrett, and more. And it’s the most ethical, effective, and well researched approach to dog training today.
Aligned with the gold standard of dog training tests
Progress through Harper will set up your pup to ace the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen Test. This 10-step test is the gold standard for measuring a well-behaved pup, and it’s often the first step towards therapy work, agility competitions, and other dog training conquests.
Start building the habit of building habits
Your dog and your neighbors aren’t the only ones who will benefit from Harper. Every aspect of the Harper studio is designed to create good habits. Choose your goal. Track your sessions to measure progress. Stay motivated to chase it down.
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”James Clear, Habit Expert
Once we learn how to make a new habit stick, we’ll have a superpower we can use in other critical areas of our lives.
What some of our members are saying about Harper
- We love Harper! 🥰🐶🥰
Harper has become a must-have app for our new puppy lifestyle. First of all, the app is beautifully designed and a pleasure to use. The guides are VERY well-written and thoughtful, while the video training demonstrations clearly show you how to progress your pup through the exercises, (plus, they’re adorable). And last but certainly not least, the Harper team is incredibly responsive and committed to its dog parents’ success. I reached out with a question about how to manage a specific aspect of housetraining and received an unexpectedly thoughtful and detailed response from a Harper cofounder. Well done. 👏👏👏—Mary*Ku
- Great app! Great support!!
I tried this app because I got two young puppies. I knew I needed to start training young before they grow into the 90 pounders we expect them to be. This app has lots of great ways to train and fun games. Everything is positive reinforcement. The games work really well with my pups, too! I sent in a question and I got a reply in just a couple hours. They had clearly read what I asked and responded to me directly - not a canned reply. It was super helpful!! I cannot recommends this app enough. I love that it reminds me every day to train/play with them if I turn that setting on.—Karmaronin
- Most helpful app ever.
We got a 6 week old puppy with honestly little idea of where we were going when it came to training. I started researching and found this app. Things are going great so far, we have even had the trainers give us personalised advice for Khal, and he is working on crate training, potty training, and just the puppy basics (using the 8-week puppy course and the course about being comfortable in a crate). The games are going great, we love them. This app will hopefully be our companion as long as he is, and with any pups we get down the road. ❤️.—MaelaGrace
