In addition to the funds Eva raises through her dog treat business, we have created a sponsorship program. Many people have reached out to us wondering how else they can help get Eva to her dream.
It’s no mystery that it costs money to raise and race dogs. Each dog comes with its own quirks, personalities, vet costs, training equipment and more! With our Sponsor a Diva program, you can help out!
Sponsorship happens at 5 different levels.
1. Buy dog treats and support Eva through her business.
2. Co-sponsor a dog – you and four other individuals support a Diva Dog of your choosing. Your co-sponsorship helps pay a fraction of the costs for that dog. You will receive updates and a picture of your dog. (And no, you don’t have to find 4 friends to join you, we do that part. You just donate your co-sponsor fee and when the dog has reached 5 sponsors, it is considered fully sponsored for the season.) Click the link below to sponsor – and/or send us a message to sponsor!
3. Exclusive Sponsor – don’t like sharing? Or maybe you want to see your favorite dog get fully sponsored right away! As an exclusive sponsor you will receive updates, a picture of your dog, and name on the DivaDog truck. Click the link below to sponsor – and/or send us a message to sponsor!
4. Big Dawg Sponsor – these guys pay the $$$ to put their logo on Eva’s sled bag, dog truck…you get the picture…email us if your company is interested in being a Big Dawg Sponsor at Katt@divadogsracing.com
5. Pit Crew – purchase anything from her current needs list and help her along the way! The Needs List can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/190URFEJTJF05?ref_=wl_share
All dog sponsors will receive a photograph of the sponsored dog, as well as monthly updates. Dog sponsors will be listed on the website unless noted that they want to remain anonymous. Sponsorship lasts one year.
We have online payment now available! Don’t like online shopping? Send us an email and we can arrange other payment! Katt@divadogsracing.com

Cocoa runs in any position. She can run lead but she doesn’t like people much so we don’t typically run her up there at races. She’s shy but the goofiest dog in the yard. She is the mother to the Inspire Litter. She also runs canicross in the summer.
Exclusively Sponsored by Freddy’s Lefse

Frost runs in lead and swing position. She’s the main leader for the divas and is simply the best. She’s a sweetheart and loves everyone! Expect to hear her saying “wooooooo”!

Hope – Fully Sponsored!
She is affectionately called “Hopie” and is ALL love and affection. Hope was named after a dear friend of ours’ son, Levi, who suffers from a severely rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. Hope will always be easy to find as she gets the honor of wearing a blue harness which is the signature color for Levi’s Hope.
Please visit Levi’s Hope to learn more about Levi!
Hope is HAPPY!! LOVES EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE! She is an energizer bunny and does not like to stop. Hope has raced all but one race and she only sat out to give her brother a chance to run. She can run any position but wheel as she does not like the sound of the sled brake. She is very smart; she just needs maturity. She’s very much like her Daddy Jayce. No dog could ever replace Jayce but Hopie is pretty close in her personality.
Hope – Sponsored by The Gagner Family
Aww, sweet True Girl…she is the littlest of the Inspire Litter but don’t let her size fool you! SHE IS ONE SMART COOKIE!
She is a bit skiddish but she uses those brains well by running in swing position. She loves to pull and has pretty much outsmarted all her litter mates.
Dream is a lovey, happy, go with the flow girl. She loves to run. She is always willing to go and do anything you ask her! She has done a great job training this season and can really run in any position. She’s not a strong leader yet but she’s learning!

Believe – Fully Sponsored!
MYSTERIOUS. That’s the best way to describe Miss Believe. She has a wonderfully happy bounce to her step, she has an excellent long and fast trot (something you really love to see in an endurance dog), but she is a bit like a cat. She likes you. She’s happy to see you. But…eh…whatevs. Don’t get us wrong, she’s a happy thing…but people aren’t necessarily her driving joy in life. She likes people but she doesn’t NEED them…you know?
