Marco! Yeaaah...
I don't know if this is the best place to ask this or if these even exist, but I'm looking for a small device that can be tapped into wire circuit that I can then complete the circuit using a wireless remote. My reason for wanting this is our dog associates our old doorbell with strangers around and starts going nuts and is extremely aggressive. I wanted to try to condition her to where she doesn't associate the new doorbell we got with strangers again, since right now she doesn't.

Does this kind of thing even exist or something like it that will achieve the job I want?

I don't know of anything hardwired into a circuit, and I also don't know of anything with a native wireless interface, but with a little web server programming you could easily make a page you serve yourself and can load up on a smartphone to control one of WTI's switched PDU's or remote power switches. They're nice products, I've worked with them before. https://www.wti.com

You're looking for a remote control relay. The doorbell switch circuit is probably low voltage, so you could tie this into it in parallel to the doorbell button (first one I found on Amazon, no idea about quality): http://www.amazon.com/Button-Wireless-Control-Receiver-Controller/dp/B00JL3J594/

Just make sure the voltage and current rating of the relay are greater than the doorbell circuit.

$2 relay and a $5 raspberry pi is all you need
