Mikaela grew up harboring a fascination for the natural world and all its living things. After a childhood spent exploring the 'wilds' of her MA backyard and trying to memorize (and draw) the faces of as many dog breeds as possible, Mikaela moved to NH and graduated from UNH, where she studied studio art and wildlife ecology. She continues to pursue a passion for all things dog and holds a special interest in canine behavior and training. She lives in Barrington with two dogs and a cat, and spends her spare time exploring the local woods or at the dog park.
Haley loves all things animals, but her passion is dogs. Haley developed her love for dogs as a young child growing up in a family surrounded by pets, big and small. Her family was notorious for feeding the wildlife in the neighborhood, saving injured creatures and caring for strays when they needed help. Haley's kind heart and experiences led her to pursue working with dogs and learning as much as she can. Haley has 2 dogs of her own, Maverick, a rottweiler mix, and Esmeralda, a dachshund, that she takes with her everywhere she goes. Haley worked at Petco for 2 years where she went on to work in a dog daycare setting for the last 2 years. Haley plans on continuing her education and career with dogs in behavior, training, and general care
