A Dog’s Best Friend was owned and operated by Martina Contreras for decades. Martina has retired, and passed ownership to Tasha Suda, with training services provided by Tasha and Maria Eguren. Tasha and Maria have been operating classes for A Dog’s Best Friend for several years, and they look forward to providing both group class students and private training clients with the same high level of care and expertise that A Dog’s Best Friend is known for.

A note from Martina:

After nearly 30 years in the dog training business, I have decided to retire and pursue other passions in my life. But no worries, I won’t leave you without assistance! For the past few years I have been transitioning my classes and lessons over to Tasha Suda and Maria Eguren. Both are very knowledgeable and skilled dog trainers, certified and licensed and with many years of experience. I have received countless fabulous reviews about both of them from a variety of clients. I’ve worked with Tasha and Maria over the years at various occasions and have always liked their upbeat personalities and style. Please see their bios on our group class page. It is my intention to officially transfer ownership over to Tasha in early 2022.

It has been my pleasure (for the most part 🙂 ) to work with so many clients over the these past decades. Wishing you all the best!
