Testimonials about Teena

I am a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP)

Richard S. from Nextdoor:

I have just had my first session with Teena who is a seasoned dog handler and Shelter worker. She gave me a direct, meaningful evaluation and suggestions that have had an immediate impact on my "Bud". Bud is a very abused rescue having trust issues.  You really need to talk to Teena - She is not a "pusher" so trust her.

Heather C. from Rover:

Christina was fantastic! She was very communicative, and let me know how my cats were doing along with sending pictures of them daily. I would highly recommend her.

Vanessa G.

Teena is a great communicator and I grew to trust her quickly.  She has a positive relationship with the shelter from where I adopted my dog and that is extremely meaningful and valuable.  I am very glad to have found her for caring for our family pet.

Sarah C. from Rover:

She is a great dog trainer.  She volunteers at an animal shelter which gives her vast experience with many different types of dogs and temperaments.

Claire L. from Wag:

She was very, very patient with my old crabby dog.  The second dog is super friendly.  She was great with both!
