Who are we?

Polaris Dogs is a training and dog walking service based in North Dublin, run and operated by Darina.

Polaris, also known as the Pole Star or North Star, is famed in antiquity for guiding travelers on their journey. At Polaris we aim to guide you on your dog training journey, offering support and solutions to all of your dog training problems.

Darina has been training in her field since 2015, is a professional member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), and Pet Professionals Guild British Isles (PPGBI), holding an OCN certifications in ‘Introductory to Canine behaviour’, and ‘Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour’. She advocates for force-free, positive reinforcement methods of training ensuring both dog and human are having fun. Darina continues to study in her field, attending courses and seminars regularly.

Darina grew up around dogs, her 1st loves Alfie, & Charlie – 2 rambunctious collies that solidified her love for all things dog and a keen interest in their welfare. It was this interest that lead her to adopting several rescue sight hounds and a wee ruby cavalier and then immersing herself in the world of dog training. Having spent 5 years learning her trade in one of Dublin’s top doggie daycare and training centres, Darina set up Polaris in early 2020.

Darina currently lives in north county Dublin with her 4 rescued lurchers.
