We are happy to provide dog walking references from previous/current clients upon request.
We contacted Tena before we even had a dog. We wanted a reliable, trustworthy professional to walk our dog during the day while we were at work, but we did not want to go broke in the process. We were comforted by the fact that Tena was bonded and insured, and because we were adopting a rescued dog she reduced her rate. We asked her a million questions. Tena was very patient and understanding throughout our adoption process. Once our dog arrived, Tena did a thorough in-home visit to meet our family and familiarize herself with our home. It has been two months and we are very satisfied with her services [as of October 2012]. Our dog looks forward to his daily walks with her and she keeps a journal to help us track his moods, behavior, and health. Tena has never missed an appointment, even when she has felt under the weather. She is also flexible and will accommodate last minute emergencies. Tena is everything a dog-walker should be, and more.

Having a mature, responsible dog trainer that could come into our home while we were at work was essential for us. We have known Tena for many years and have absolute confidence in her honesty and integrity. Not only is she utterly reliable and flexible if we requested extra visits, she is skillful, too. Her approach is positive, play-centered, gentle and effective! Best of all, the dogs are always delighted to see Tena. Those wagging tails speak volumes!
