Tracy Johnson

Tracy is the co-owner of Happy Homes. She is a graduate of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has always had an interest in behavior and training. She attended the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior to satisfy that interest and to be able to help her veterinary clients address the behavioral problems they were facing. After becoming a Certified Training Partner through KPA, she started to offer group and private lessons. As the need for more room and classes grew, she knew she needed to open a daycare and training facility.

She is the owner of three dogs, two cats, two goats, chickens, and ducks.
