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

I grew up in Brea, CA with a menagerie of pets. Cats, dogs, rodents, birds and reptiles, you name it, we owned it. Animals have always been a lifelong passion. I spent many hours educating myself on training, animal behavior, nutrition, and health through various nature programs and books. While I was unable to attend formal veterinary courses, I hoped I would still find myself 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 administrative customer service and sales, I decided to finally pursue a career with animals by opening At a Tail's Pace in 2014. It has been an incredible journey and I'm so thankful that I get to spend so much of my time each day with the animals I love.


When I'm not spending time with your fur-kids, I'm either spending time with my own- Luke the Border Terrier and my bearded dragons, Evie and Vapor- or, I'm flying! My other passion is circus and the aerial arts. You can find me teaching aerial hoop at Elevate Aerial in Huntington Beach. 


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