Britany Morano was born and raised in California, but spent a lot of time on her grandparent's farm in Ohio. It was there that Britany spent a lot of time around animals - watching them interact, learning how they communicated, and honing her natural ability to work with and train them.
At two years old, Britany fell into her family pool and her family's Golden Retriever saved her life by barking until her mom came outside. It was from that point on that her strong affinity for animals began. She has a special love for dogs and horses, and is passionate about being the "voice" for animals.
By 6th grade she was volunteering at Joleen's Horse Rescue in Chatsworth, CA by educating the public on horse slaughter and caring for neglected horses until they found their forever homes. Her love for animals continued into High School where she worked as a Vet Tech and then enrolled in a private animal training college to get certified with large exotic animals as a handler and conservation advocate in 2004.
Even though she worked with a wide variety of animals, Britany's specialty was always training canines. She trained animal stars for television and movie productions and continued her career in obedience training before finally getting into the world of service dogs.
Recently she has begun volunteering with search and rescue for CARDA, but her real passion is service dogs. Britany feels the experience and bond between a human and service dog is, "indescribable" she believes animals truly are teachers and healers. Following her passion, she became a certified Service Dog Trainer in 2018 and founded Cornerstone Companions Service Dogs.
Today, Britany is living in Santa Clarita, California with her three children surrounded by pets and service dogs in training. "Our house is always full of love and dog hair, we are blessed with an abundance of both!" she says. In 2020, Britany started a breeding program for Cornerstone Companions. She believes that animals are here as teachers and healers, and wants to make a difference in the community around her by harnessing the power of the human-animal bond.
Cheyenne was born and raised in Southern California, but relocated to Western Colorado in 2017. She has loved dogs since the time she was a little girl and her family always had lots of rescue dogs. She loves training her own dogs and friends' dogs for fun. When she got her first personal dog, Diesel, she enjoyed furthering her knowledge of dog training by joining the AKC and starting to earn titles.
When she had a stroke in 2019, she had some major lingering problems and needed assistance when home alone. With the help and guidance of Cornerstone Companions, Cheyenne owner trained Diesel to be her Medical Response Service Dog. She had so much fun training Diesel that she wanted to continue to train service dogs. Helping with Cornerstone Companions allows her to give back and help others receive the gift of a Service Dog.
