Welcome to pranaDOGS

a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization working to improve the quality of life for dogs through Education, Training and Resource sharing.

  • We work hand-in-hand with Shelters and Rescues to give homeless dogs with behavior issues the time and rehabilitation needed to become well-mannered members of society, and terrific best friends!
  • We provide affordable basic and advanced manners classes, problem solving and one-on-one training, to residents in and around Durango, Colorado.
  • Our Resources section provides free information for pet owners, shelters and rescues to empower everyone to have a great relationship with their dogs and cats.

Diamonds in the Ruff

pranaDOGS fosters and trains dogs who are between homes. Once they’re training is almost complete, we begin looking for a lifelong home for them. Some dogs have to live with other dogs, others need a low-chaos household, each is unique.
