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.
Brianna's love for animals and the outdoors began at a very young age. She started riding horses at the age of six, and always had a home full of animals. Brianna took the animal science and equine program through Dover High School, and started her first job on a horse farm in Portsmouth, where she shortly became the manager. She moved on to manage another farm, and bought her first horse at the age of 18. She then decided to add another passion to her workplace, and started working at a dog daycare. That led her to want to start a career as a dog trainer, and learn as much as she could about their behavior. She is currently studying through ABC, (Animal Behavioral College), and interning with Dog Trainer, Sue Carney. She lives in Nottingham with her horse, dog, two cats, two rabbits and chinchilla.
