Each dog is an individual and has their own unique personality and strengths. By treating them as such, their confidence grows. At Inspire Canine, your dog will be encouraged to Think… Innovate… Be Yourself…
At Inspire Canine Behavior Counseling & Training, we believe that the most valuable relationships are built on mutual trust and respect.
We focus on education, two-way communication, and creating opportunities to develop self-regulation, and self-esteem through choice. Our goal is to use our expertise to help your dog reach its full potential.
Paula was absolutely amazing! She did a dog behavioral class for a senior living community and they asked for her to keep coming back because it was so beneficial. I appreciated her responsiveness, honesty with my questions, and how personable she is. Definitely one of my best hires yet!
Paula has been excellent to work with from the start. We have a rescue that joined our family in 2012 and have done a good amount of training throughout our time together, but he has always struggled with separation anxiety. Recently we moved twice in the span of a year and the poor guy had multiple major heath problems, which significantly increased his anxiety. Paula has helped us develop a relationship none of that other training ever did, one built on mutual buy in from both parties. This work creates resilience in him and us. We are finally speaking the same language, and seeing real results! A big part of dog training is people training, and Paula uses behavioral science to construct a partnership with you and your pet. She’s also very responsive, wonderful to work with, and does a great job explaining the science of animal behavior. I highly recommend Paula and Inspire Canine!
Paula is the best of the best! My husband and I had been through puppy training for our first dog a couple years ago, but Paula’s class was above and beyond what we had experienced in the past. The difference with Paula is that she not only understands dogs well, but also people. Her skills enable you to communicate with your dog so that you have a mutual understanding, and empower you to build a strong and trusting bond with your dog from the start. Her real life examples were so helpful, and our dog learned quickly, as did we! She is able to make a comfortable environment for both you and your dog, and makes training fun and relaxed. She is also extremely knowledgeable in her field, and has so many ideas no matter what your question may be. I loved after each class that she would send us a recap of what we worked on, and what to practice. We highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to help. She has so much passion for what she does, and is a true pleasure to work with. Thank you, Paula!
