Meet the Owner Tracy
Hi! My name is Tracy Bruinsma and welcome to Muttz Gym! I have taught elementary Physical Education and Health for the past 20 years. I started training dogs privately about 10 years ago and really enjoyed it! I am a C.L.A.S.S.®, (Canine Life And Social Skills®), AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and AKC S.T.A.R. (Socialization, Training, Activity, Responsibility) Puppy evaluator. I feel strongly that dogs have a positive influence in our lives whether their role as service dog, working dog, or loving family companion. I also believe in teaching/training the whole person and dog. That's why I decided to step away from teaching in the schools and combine my love of dogs and training with my background in teaching Physical Education and Health. The result = Muttz Gym! I can't wait to meet you!
