Dog Training Classes

About Animal Inspirations

Animal Inspirations LLC was formed in 2000 one year after Sherry Eddy and her family moved from the Twin Cities to a small hobby farm in rural Glencoe, MN .  Sherry wanted to bring the positive, reward-based training methods that she had utilized and taught at the Twin Cities Obedience Training Center in Minneapolis for over 15 years to the communities of Glencoe, Hutchinson, Litchfield and surrounding areas.  Working therapy dogs in the Twin Cities Metro area was another endeavor that she knew she wanted to expand on to include domestic farm animals.  The hobby farm provided the perfect environment to make this expansion possible and Animal Inspirations, LLC was born!
