Hanna Harris, owner of The Bark and My Curious Canine, is an animal lover with a lifelong passion and dedication to helping dogs. Born and raised in Dandridge, Tennessee, she has always had a love for animals and a passion for advocating for dogs. She did many hours of volunteer work at animal shelters and dog rescues in high school and while attending the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
While living near Camp Lejeune, NC She was hired by a local PTSD service dog trainer and found herself spending all of her time helping care for and training service dogs. It was then that her love for dogs grew into a passion for understanding the canine mind. Hanna witnessed first hand that truly understanding a dog is the key to helping it live a long and happy life. She was amazed by what positive reinforcement dog training could do to help a dog find peace, balance, and purpose.
Upon moving back to Knoxville in 2015, Hanna decided it was time to bring positive reinforcement to the community. My Curious Canine was started to bring better understanding to the dogs we call family. Through partnerships with local shelters like Young Williams Animal Center and rescue groups, she has been able to spread the message to countless dog owners that positive reinforcement is the safest and most effective way to train a dog.
