LIers find second careers working with dogs
Michael Schaier, 61, of Freeport, gave up his real estate business six years ago to train dogs full time. The "dogpreneur" is the founder of Michael's Pack in Mineola. South Fork resident Randy Handwerger, 47, a self-professed "animal freak," was a commercial pet photographer for 14 years before she too became a "dogpreneur." Handwerger is the founder of S.S. Aqua Dog, a rehabilitative hydrotherapy program for ailing dogs that's based in East Hampton.
