Coreena Breazeale

OWNER

Introducing Coreena, the visionary founder and lead dog trainer of ReviveK9, whose lifelong dedication to animals has shaped a remarkable journey from the ranches of Oregon to the service of the US Coast Guard and, ultimately, to the realm of professional dog training.

Growing up on her grandparents' ranch, Coreena's childhood was steeped in the world of animals, fostering an early connection that would define her life's calling. Volunteer work at a local animal hospital solidified her passion, leading her to aspire to become a veterinarian.


However, fate had a different plan.

After joining the US Coast Guard with aspirations of blending her love for photography with military service, an unforeseen injury altered Coreena's course. During challenging times, her unit introduced her to the Station Mascot, Gibbet, a pivotal presence that reignited her passion for animals. Amidst the demanding responsibilities of a Search and Rescue Unit, Gibbet became a beacon of joy on dark days, reminding Coreena of the profound impact animals can have.

Inspired by this newfound calling, Coreena delved into service animal work, volunteering with organizations dedicated to training service dogs. The experience ignited a passion for dog training that she couldn't ignore. While attending college, Coreena seized an opportunity to become a Professional Dog Trainer, marking a transformative chapter in her life.

Immersing herself in the world of dog training, Coreena became a voracious learner, devouring books, podcasts, audiobooks, and engaging in forums to deepen her understanding of all facets of canine behavior. Years of dedication, coupled with invaluable experiences working alongside talented trainers, led to the birth of ReviveK9.

ReviveK9, under Coreena's guidance, stands as a testament to her unwavering commitment to enhancing the lives of dogs and their owners. From her roots on a ranch to the coast guard and now as the driving force behind ReviveK9, Coreena's journey is a testament to the transformative power of passion and dedication in the pursuit of a lifelong calling.

Catey Cuesta

Pensacola Lead Trainer

Reactivity and Aggression Specialist

Catey Cuesta's illustrious journey in the world of animal care began in Memphis, TN, where her early passion for all creatures led her family to foster for the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County during her high school years. Transitioning from fostering to a professional role as a kennel tech, Cuesta faced firsthand the behavioral challenges that dogs encountered at the shelter, focusing on injured and abused animals. Unfazed by the difficulties, she took the initiative to establish a comprehensive training program, tailored to address each dog's specific needs, resulting in the resolution of numerous behavioral issues before these dogs found their forever homes.


Growing up with a Catahoula Shepherd mix named Ty, Catey learned the art of training alongside her father, establishing a strong foundation in understanding canine behavior. Later, she continued her dedication to animal welfare by fostering and working at the Humane Society of Memphis, where her focus remained on rehabilitating injured and abused animals.


Relocating to Oxford, MS, Cuesta pursued a degree in Psychology while managing roles at a local animal hospital, eventually ascending to the position of Resort Coordinator. Here, she showcased her expertise in fostering positive interactions among diverse canine personalities, overseeing a facility that accommodated non-dog-friendly dogs in its daycare.

A pivotal moment in Catey's life occurred when she faced personal challenges, leading her to prioritize her mental health and resilience. This transformative experience fueled her commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

After graduating from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor's in Applied Science of Psychology in 2020, Cuesta continued her dedication to animal welfare by working at the local animal shelter. Her advocacy for justice within the organization led to positive changes, including the closure of the shelter, creating space for reform.

Catey's profound connection with dogs continued with the addition of Zami, a dog she obtained at the age of 18. Zami became an integral part of her life, symbolizing resilience, companionship, and joy through various milestones. Catey's love for Zami further fueled her commitment to enhancing the lives of shelter dogs.

Her passion for dog training and welfare led Cuesta to Pensacola, FL, where she collaborated with Dog's Playing for Life, receiving formal training in rehabilitating dogs with severe behavioral issues. Eager to contribute to the community, Catey joined ReviveK9, where her dedication and expertise have not only saved numerous canine lives but also played a crucial role in shaping training programs for dogs and new trainers alike.

As an invaluable member of the ReviveK9 team, Catey's commitment equips dog owners with the tools necessary for a joyful life alongside their canine companions. Thrilled to have her as an integral part of the team, ReviveK9 recognizes Catey Cuesta as a professional canine advocate and accomplished dog trainer, contributing significantly to the welfare of dogs and their owners.

Moriah Brooks embarked on her journey in service dog training at the age of 10, inspired by her sister life-altering scoliosis surgery. Witnessing her sister's struggle with mobility, Moriah was determined to learn how to train a service dog to restore some of her sister's independence.
