Miriam Fields-Babineau has been training animals of many species since 1978. She began working with horses as a trainer and riding instructor. Upon graduating college with degrees in Zoology and Psychology, she began working at zoos as a caretaker and trainer of exotic animals. In 1983, she started her own business as a pet trainer, going to private residences and teaching pet parents how to communicate with their pets. Also in 1983 she began providing trained animals for media productions - movies, television, advertising, music videos and documentaries. She has worked with elephants, tigers, lions, sea lions, gray seals, wolves, monkeys, pot belly pigs, sea otters, dolphins, bush dogs, beaver, and domestic animals dogs, cats, horses, rats, mice and birds.
The reason Miriam can work with any animal is that she understands how to communicate with them using their language. Paring positive reinforcement training methods with this communication process enables her to bridge the communication gap between pet parent and pet.
