Harper is a brand new dog training system that unlocks the best version of your best friend.
It's fast, simple, and fun. You'll be amazed at the progress and you and your pup can make in just a few minutes each day.
A TRAINING PLAN ANYONE CAN FOLLOW
It’s like a tiny dog trainer lives in your pocket. Our seven level program helps busy people like us build better relationships with our dogs. It works by playing fun training games, for just a few minutes a day, that teach you and your pup important skills.
Personalize your plan for what’s important to your pup. The training plan is all about keeping your dog safe, your house calm, and your relationship strong—no matter the age or breed of your pup. And you can focus it even more, personalizing the plan to work on just the stuff most important to you.
TEACH YOUR DOG THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILLS
- Comfortable in the crate
- Develop self-control
- Good with humans
- Good with dogs
- Sit, down & stay
- Come when called
- Walk like a champ
- Play nice
THIS WORKS BECAUSE IT'S FUN. AND IT'S FUN BECAUSE IT WORKS.
As easy as watching stories and playing games. Stories on your phone are useful for more than just documenting your brunch. We use the stories format of immersive, looping video to teach bite-sized lessons and show technique before you play each training game. It’s the most effective way yet to communicate this kind of material.
Like Canine Candy Crush. Every game is a fast 3–5 minute session. Just like you can learn a language waiting in line at Chipotle, you can train your dog in short bursts during your day. It’s not only convenient—frequent, quick bursts of positive training are actually the way dogs and humans learn best.
KNOW YOU'RE HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
Positive training from the best. The training plan is designed in collaboration with Karen Pryor Academy certified trainers. That means it uses positive reinforcement: well-timed rewards that encourage the behaviors we want instead of punishing what we don’t. It’s the most ethical, effective, and well researched approach to dog training today.
Aligned with the gold standard of dog training tests. If you master Harper’s initial training plan, your pup will be set up 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.
Harper offers an auto-renewing subscription for $6.99 per month.
Your Harper subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. You can go to your iTunes Account settings to manage your subscription and turn off auto-renew. Your iTunes Account will be charged when the purchase is confirmed.
Introducing Today! Now Harper recommends the perfect training game for you to play with your pup based on your progress through the plan. So whether it's reviewing the fundamentals, continuing to work on a skill, or trying out something new, Today makes sure a great training session is one tap away.
Other Fixes & Polish
• Added: If the app fails to connect to the server when it's first opened, it will now ask the human to retry instead of just sitting there spinning forever like a big dummy.
• Fixed: We rewrote all the networking code to be more consistent with iOS standards. That means fewer potential issues, but one very tired engineer.
• Added: There's now a "Reset on Next Launch" toggle in the Harper part of your Settings app. You can use it if your Harper app is having problems. Think of it as the 2018 version of taking the game out, blowing on it, and trying it again.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is super simple to use! It has many different levels to help train your pup. My favorite feature is that I got to personally pick what I wanted to train my dog whether that be crate training, sitting, etc. I recommend this for anyone struggling to train their dog because it actually works!!!
Get right into lesson 1
Too many apps start with a signup screen that is annoying. I like that a lesson is presented before asking for a sign up. Then if it looks like two more are available without sign up. That’s nice.
I hadn’t thought about training patience like I saw in the first lesson. Nice positive reinforcement too.
Amazing and simple
This app is amazing well thought out, easy to use, fun and makes so much sense. Quick results give you the confidence that these guys are on the right track. Highly recommended!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
