Well, hello! I'm Tiana K. Gutierrez, owner of At a Tail's Pace.

I grew up in Brea, CA with a menagerie of my own pets- small animals, cats, dogs, birds and reptiles, I loved them all! Animals have always been my passion. I spent many hours educating myself on animal behavior, training, nutrition and health through various nature programs and books. I never had the opportunity to attend school and take veterinary courses, but hoped I would still end up working with animals someday. 

In 2009, I began volunteering for Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue in La Habra Heights, CA. Each month, retired racers would be brought up from the track in Tijuana; it was our duty to help the new arrivals go through health checks and temperament tests before being placed into foster homes. What an incredibly rewarding experience! I was fortunate enough to volunteer and occasionally foster for the next three years.  


After working for far too long in customer service and sales, I realized just how unhappy I was, and in 2014, decided to finally pursue a career with animals by opening At a Tail's Pace. Once my clientele became too big to support by myself, I asked my good friend Daniel if he would be interested in joining the company and he was more than happy to. 


When Daniel and I aren't out taking care of pets, we're usually spending time with our own mischief makers. Daniel owns a black Labrador named Oona and my best buddy is Luke the Border Terrier. I also own three bearded dragons: Evie, Vapor and Bishop.


Daniel is on his way to becoming a Licensed Canine Massage Therapist. He will begin accepting new clients in 2020. 


We can't wait to meet you and your fur-kids!
