Andrea takes dog training to a whole next level with her passion and knowledge. She cares so much and really helps you understand how your dog and you can understand each other better. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Andrea was amazing with our dog. She was a great dog walker and during their walks worked on his recall which helped us immensely. Unfortunately, we moved and we are so sad to say bye as Beau would sit and wait by the door for her and his pals. Thank you so much,

We are new dog parents, and have found the experience of working with Andrea on training our young puppy truly transformative. Our puppy is happy, super well adjusted, and easygoing. At 3 months, she's already an expert sidewalk walker (did 3k on busy streets at rush hour yesterday without a hitch), loves the park, plays nice with our kids, and shows no signs of aggression. She's fully crate trained, responds to basic commands, and is able to regulate her boundless energy and redirect when needed. This is all no doubt largely thanks to Andrea's early intervention, saving us from lots of rookie mistakes.

I would consider her the dog whisperer. She has a way with dogs that is bar none.

In most human professions and trades with knowledge and practice comes excellence. if additionally the person loves their job, you have all the factors together to preform at the highest possible levels. Andrea Dinan has the knowledge and practice and loves to train dogs so her job is also a hobby for her, and you can watch the light on her eyes when she is with a dog or training them.

Andrea Dinan is wonderful! Both my dogs and I love her! The greatest gift is the excitement they have when they see her. Andrea has helped my 6 yr old JRT overcome anxiety and my 1 yr old stay more focused on walks! Andrea is #1 when it comes to training for me and Jack Russell Network Canada!

Andrea is amazing at honing in on your dog's needs and giving you concrete "homework" and activities to take away from your in-person sessions. We started working with Andrea just over 2 weeks after adopting our 2 year old rescue, Walter, who was exhibiting very anxious and what seemed like aggressive behaviours on leash and around the city. After the first session, Andrea figured out that Walter was in fact VERY anxious and was not actually aggressive but just sensitive to physical touch and personal space. She helped identify his triggers and signs of anxiety on walks so that we could work on turning them into positive experiences. In about 4 sessions, Andrea set us up with the tools we needed to help reduce Walter's (and our own!) leash anxieties and drastically improve his leash-walking and social skills in the city. She helped us understand our dog and how to read his body language, but most importantly how to act on it which ultimately has lead to a much more content and relaxed dog both at home and in the city. Highly recommend City Dogs for in-person sessions! Thanks Andrea!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel like I can walk Leo down the street again. I can see the spark in Leo's eyes again. You truly make training easy.

Andrea is amazing. She is quick to respond and incredible with the dogs. She is a highly valued member of the force-free community. I can't recommend her strongly enough.
