Casey Coughlin

Casey is a dog-training, agility obsessed, thirty-something.

In April 2017, she quit her day job and threw herself into her dog training business full time. Since then, her company, Inspiration Canine, has helped hundreds of families teach their dogs, in person and online, how to be great family companions.

Casey also runs Real Life Reactivity, an online-based program to help dogs recover from their reactivity and get back into the real world.

In early 2019, Inspiration Canine expanded with its acquisition of LEDR Dog Training; now both companies work to serve the pet dogs of Connecticut as one and help clients with everything from puppy raising to solving complex behavioral problems.

With both companies united, Casey now mentors a team of pet dog trainers to ensure the best applications of positive-based training are presented to their clients.

Casey is also an assistant coach online at The Cognitive Canine, a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a OneMind Dog trainee, and holds both AKC Canine Good Citizen and S.T.A.R. Puppy evaluator titles. When she is not training clients, Casey is traveling the country with her border collie, Onni, competing in agility.
