About Tena

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Tena! I love pets and treat them like family. I can't imagine my life without having at least one four-legged friend in it at all times. Your pet will feel right at home and well cared for.

I live in a quiet, centrally located neighborhood just off of I-35 and Shawnee Mission Parkway. I have a very large, grassy, level backyard with a 3 foot chain link fence so there is plenty of room for your pets to run and play. I also have a nice, heavy duty, covered dog kennel outside which can be used if your dog suffers from extreme separation anxiety, isn't house broken, is prone to jumping fences, digging large holes, or just prefers to hang out in an outdoor kennel when no humans are present. Their time in the kennel would be minimized to only when I am not home and their care and comfort is my top priority. I will never leave any animal unecessarily kenneled. Overnight stays must be done at my house, as I have my own pets to take care of.

Alternatively, I am your resource if all you need is someone to drop by and check on your pets, take them for a walk and refill food and water dishes (or clean litter boxes or change out paper shreddings, etc).

I am comfortable with taking care of special needs pets and administering oral medications.

Where to start? The Hosts' home is under major renovation which was not posted on the website. When my dogs arrived, Tena said the dogs would be in her bedroom so the contractors would not let them out accidently. Not what an Owner wants to hear. The house and yard in no way reflected the pictures online. No visible flooring in the house. We were traveling from out of state en route to a major convention which left no alternative at the last minute or I would have definitely found other venues. Then on pick up day, the host "forgot" the arranged time for retrieval. We were panicked as we did not know what to think of the vacant premises with the dogs inside (ours and others), barking. My dogs went promptly back to their groomer upon arrival home as both smelled of the hosts' home. Not pleasant. Tena probably has good intentions but some significant changes need to happen before I would recommend. Would you leave your dogs in a scenario where construction is under way?

Tena did a great job. I booked last minute for a 5 night stay and she gladly accepted. She has a big backyard where the dogs can play. Babs had a blast and was exhausted when we picked her up. We will definetly use her again!
Tena was great! Drax came home happy, healthy, and worn out from all the play time with other dogs under her care. I was out of the country for five days, but I knew my little buddy was in great hands. Tena loves all dogs and that's apparent in the relationship she has with each dog in her care. I would recommend Tena to anyone and I would absolutely leave Drax with her again.
