After working more than a decade as a buyer for a gourmet retailer, Nicole jumped at the chance to come work with her brother, Chris, and all the amazing animals. At Dusty Trails Nicole manages the social media, marketing, customer service and office duties.  She also helps where she can with the dogs and livestock.  She says, "Being outside and around the animals is so therapeutic, I love my job!"

Chris Gant is a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps. In Al Qaim, Iraq 2005 is when Chris was first drawn to the “working dog.” Being around the Marine's camp dogs, Star and Duke, gave him the first experience and joy of seeing working dogs in action. After the military he attended the Animal Behavior College where he graduated as an honors student; he still helps out with their ongoing courses. After graduation, Chris worked with local shelters helping prepare dogs for new homes and with wolves from time to time at the Lockwood Animal Rescue Center. He took a full time position at the Dog Psychology Center with work focusing on aggressive dogs.  A few years later he decided to branch out on his own to develop a balanced training approach and created Dusty Trails. He continually lends a helping hand to his fellow Veterans with PTSD by teaching them the sport of herding with their own dog(s) to help alleviate the stress and discomfort of PTSD. Chris now serves his community by helping owners and their dogs live a healthy, positive life within their pack at home.
