Tell Me How!

Wouldn't it be great if dogs came knowing everything about how to be a GOOD DOG

Unfortunately that's not how dogs work and we have to teach them... well, everything.

There is a vast amount of misinformation about dog training, gear, tools and diets, it is easy to feel frustrated and helpless.

If you're feeling overwhelmed and wondering how you and your dog can go from frustration and desperation, to and amazing and joyful relationship...

Then Inspired by Dogs is for you!

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dina and her training methods.  She is very positive, patient and knowledgeable when it comes to training and animal psychology.  She takes the time to really break things down so that they are truly understood. 
I trust her experience and methods and have seen her do so many amazing things.  She is friendly and really loves passing on her knowledge to ensure proper training and positive experiences for both the dog/s and their owners.  I love watching the connections she makes with the animal she is training as well as her excitement to teach others how to do the same.  You helped me form a strong bond and trusting relationship with my animals.   Thanks Dina for all that you do."
Martina Walker

Training is more than just the basics.

It’s about a strong, respectful relationship that grows in time creating a dog that knows how to sit, stay and come, sure…but also about ignoring distractions, not running out any door when opened, and certainly not accosting the delivery man.


Uncovering that relationship means your dog is safe. It means You are safe.

The Choice is Simple…

Put an end to the daily struggle. Inspired by dogs will give you the tools and knowledge to make training successful and fun for all dogs.

Teach your dog to be the best and have FUN doing it.


"Simply put, Dina is THE BEST dog trainer you’ll ever meet! Unlike most trainers, her philosophy centers on creating a loving bond with the dog focused on mutual respect and playful interactions.

Your dog is going to WANT to do what you ask of them no matter how hard it is. Every interaction with your dog offers opportunity to teach new things or reinforce what your dog already knows. This way it is fulfilling for you and your dog while also being fun!

Dina knows exactly what your dog needs. Because of this, your dog will learn quickly giving you the results you wish sooner rather than later. Yes, you will need to do your part too being consistent with it but it will be fun and won’t feel like a chore.

We would not recommend any other trainer for your dog needs."
