Kaleigh - Trainer

Kaleigh grew up in a rural North Carolina town just south of the Virginia line, where she was involved with animals from an early age. Growing up, her family helped run a 501c3 non-profit called The Eastern Bluebird Rescue group, under the direction of retired USDA damage control agent and wildlife rehabber, Frank Newell, as well as a wildlife education center that traveled to schools, Girl Scout troops, 4H groups and more to teach children about wild and exotic animals and why their protection is important. As a teen, she began helping rehabilitate up to 42 deer fawns per year in the summer, at anytime she could have opossums, rabbits, squirrels, song birds and more. Kaleigh continued her career in the animal field by working as a veterinary technician, with an interest in clinical diagnostics and client education. She soon realized she wanted to focus on animal behavior, and the “why”. Kaleigh is passionate about allowing owners to enjoy their dogs, and understand why they think they way they do, and is excited to continue her education. In her spare time loves to garden, hike, fish, and painting with her 2 year old daughter.

After college she moved to North Carolina from Upstate New York to work at a small animal veterinarian practice as a Veterinary Technician. Brittany has always had a love for animals since she was a young girl, volunteering at local animal shelters and taking in every stray she could.

She wanted to learn more about animal behavior and to create a bridge of communication between owner and pet. In her free time Brittany enjoys spending time with her Great Danes Oakley and Jubilee whether it be hiking or taking them down the river on a kayak.
