Tera Tollefson
Owner/Dog Handler

Hi, my name is Tera and I am the owner and operator of Walk N’ Wag LLC along with my sidekick, Marley. I am licensed, bonded, insured, pet CPR certified and a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals. I have attended and participated in many obedience classes, agility classes/trials and canine behavior workshops over the past 10 years. I am always working to get as much hands-on experience as possible working with a variety of different breeds, temperaments, behavioral issues and constantly studying canine behavior in my free time. I am always intertwining aspects of my personal yoga and meditation practice into my work with dogs which has led to me developing my own style of training. My philosophy on teaching dogs how to be our calm and confident companions is rooted in dog psychology, clear communication and establishing healthy boundaries within the human/dog relationship. My goal is to to focus on using our affection as a reward and on how we follow through with our dogs so that they can better understand what we are communicating to them. I believe in teaching us, the humans, how to interact with our dogs via body language and energy to get the desired behaviors from our dogs. Practicing that consistently and advocating for our dogs in a variety of situations that may arise. I treat each dog in the pack as if they are my own and like to think of myself as their guide, teacher or life coach. Helping them to become the best version of themselves.
