THE MEMBERS OF OUR TEAM
Breanna Wright is the amazing, motivated owner and founder of Peace For Pets. Since she was a small child she always had a passion and interest in taking care of animals. As a child she would always bring home stray or injured pets because she cared so much for them. This passion and interest in animals led her to study wildlife conservation because she wanted to help protect animals that don’t have a voice. She graduated from Weber State University with a B.S. in Zoology (study of animals) and a minor in Botany (study of plants). Breanna’s degree has allowed her to work with a great variety of wildlife including brine shrimp, many species of fish, neo-tropical birds, desert tortoises, kangaroo rats and even rattlesnakes in the Mojave Desert in Nevada.
To pay for her college tuition, Breanna worked at a few pet daycare/kenneling and self dog wash facilities. She gained valuable experience learning different ways to make dogs more comfortable when they are not in their natural environment. During the day most of the dogs seemed to be comfortable but at night she began to notice that the dogs were more anxious than normal. She also felt intense empathy for older pets because kenneling can be so hard on them. For these reasons she decided to dedicate herself to others by starting her own business where she can treat other people’s animals as if they were her own. Being an avid traveler but also having two dogs and a leopard tortoise she understands a pet owner’s stress and anxiety when they have to take their pets to a standard kennel. Because of this she always would find a friend or family member to take care of them in their natural environment but even this can be stressful finding someone you trust with your furry or scaly kids. For she has never though of her animals as pets, but as part of her family.
The good news for you is that you can always have a peace of mind when you are away from home knowing that Peace For Pets is there taking the absolute best care of your pets. She wants to bring peace to you and your pet and by something she has always been so passionate about. Having always had a special connection with animals, Breanna would love to apply her experiences to caring for your dog the way she always hoped hers would be treated.
In her spare time, Breanna volunteers for the Humane Society of Utah doing outreach, walking dogs and help in daily duties. She has earned a certificate from the american red cross in dog and cat first aid.
In 2017 Peace for Pets merged with Mountain Hounds and Hank and Bullets and will be continuing their services under the Peace For Pets brand.

From early childhood, Christi has always known that she would wind up working with dogs. There has always been an indescribable draw towards her canine companions that she could never explain. After years of relentless bargaining with her parents, they finally allowed her to get a dog despite the fact that both her brother and father were highly allergic. This dog, Sirus changed her life forever. Christi quickly learned how much she related to and understood the canine spirit. When it came time to go off for college, she seriously contemplated staying at home so that she could stay with him. After his passing, she felt lost and vulnerable and was aching to find a way to spend time with dogs. Distraught, she moved back home in order to figure out what to do next.
It was a few months after his passing, when a friend from a local vet clinic told her about a job opening, and since that day she has worked with dogs in one way or another. Working at the clinic opened her eyes to the possibilities of working with dogs. She couldn’t believe that she could get paid to be surrounded by the creatures she loved most in this world. After a couple years working in the clinic, Christi went back to college in Oregon where it wasn’t long before she found another job at a boarding facility. She was pursuing a degree in physical therapy, but this job changed things for her once again. This facility became her favorite place, her oasis from school and helped her realize that she would only be happy if working with dogs was in the picture, which meant not pursuing physical therapy any longer.
After graduating and moving back home to Utah, she began working at a dog rescue with our long time trainer who was able to show her how much training can truly help the dogs she had always cared about. Christi had always known she wanted to help dogs, and now with her knowledge of training she finally had a way to do that beyond just caring for their basic needs. She was motivated to learn everything she could about dogs and the ways we humans can help them, because her new dog at home was quite the handful. After a couple years of hard work under her master trainer, her dog, Aspen has finally been able to make strides towards being less afraid and reactive. Working through her own dog’s issues helped Christi learn just about everything she needed to know about training and allowed her to see how much training can truly help dogs (and their owners). Seeing this transition first hand just reaffirmed what Christi had always known deep down. That helping dogs was her true calling. She has followed her master trainer over to Peace for Pets where there was plenty opportunity to help canines and their owners to provide better lives for both the dogs and the people who love them.
