  • BRITT CAVALLETTO

    Dogs of all breeds have fascinated Britt Cavalletto from an early age – from German Shepherds to Labrador Retrievers to Briards to Border Terriers. She loves dogs and spending time with them. Their unconditional love and affection is contagious and watching people light up when they see a dog is priceless. After graduating from Yale University with a dual degree in psychology and history, Britt received hands-on experience as a vet technician. When she’s not busy working hard to ensure her clients’ dogs are happy, confident and well-trained, Britt enjoys spending time with her husband Dan, their three children, Declan, Seamus and Keaton, and their two dogs, Angus and Shirley.

  • Lucas “Luke” Patnode

    Trained by Dan Cavalletto, Luke started with the Cavalletto Canine team in 2014. Luke is an outdoor enthusiast who brings that energy to his dog-training every day. Luke’s love of dogs and passion for training began while he was growing up in a small town in New Hampshire, where his family bred Labrador Retrievers.  Luke served in the U.S. Marine Corps for seven years. His military experience, as well as his focus on physical fitness and well-being, brings structure, discipline, and dedication to his training style. He continues to strive toward learning and building new skill sets with the dogs he trains and looks forward to using his expertise in the future to help people with special needs who have Veteran service animals.
