H armony Canines was founded by Destiny Valladares in 2006. As with many dog businesses Harmony was born out of a love for animals at a young age. Destiny’s training experience began in 1984 with the inception of her grandfather’s boarding and training facility in San Antonio, TX. Destiny graduated from Texas A&M University with a Masters degree in Animal Science in 2001. In 2006 she completed an additional certification course and internship in canine obedience and behavior in Thousand Oaks, California through Animal Behavior College. Destiny stays current on canine behavior by attending continuing education workshops provided at Veterinary Symposiums across the country. Her most recent workshops include lectures by Barbara Sherman, PhD, DVM, DACVB, Bonnie Beaver, DVM, DACVB, and Susan Friedman, PhD. Destiny has also attended workshops taught by trainer celebrities Cesar Milan and Victoria Stilwell.
In January of 2013 she had the rare opportunity to learn from an incredibly gifted group of trainers at Dolphin Quest in Oahu. Studying multiple species only enhances our knowledge of behavior in general. Given what we can accomplish with animals in water proves that there is a world of untapped potential with our four-legged family members on land.
Her all-time favorite behaviorists are Susan Friedman, PhD and Sophia Yin DVM, MS.
Destiny is also a member of the Pet Care Services Association.
Boasting of more than twenty years of experience, Harmony Canines offers complete canine solutions. Ninety percent of families who receive help from Harmony are referred by local veterinarians. Harmony aims for a better behaved dog coupled with a well-equipped family.
