Tracy is the proud owner of Benjamin Biscuit Club, and she loves her business! She is married with 3 kids and 2 dogs, Margo and Otis. Margo is a shepherd/lab mix, born approximately 2017, and she was Tracy's foster dog with Florida All Retriever Rescue (FARR). Margo arrived with a hole in her eye, and bullets in her head and body. Her eye was stitched up and healed, and adopted by Tracy's family! Otis is a blue harlequin Great Dane, born 2020, as goofy and silly as they come!
Tracy earned her Masters Degree in Counseling and worked as a children's counselor and social worker. Tracy has always loved dogs and wanted to pursue a career working with them. In March 2014, she purchased The Dog Dorks, and made it into her own, Benjamin Biscuit Club. Her experience with dogs began as a teenager in Michigan, where she managed a large boarding facility. She has participated in dog training classes, Fly-ball, and Canine Good Citizen with her own dogs. Tracy is currently a board member with FARR, and regularly fosters dogs in her home.
Katrina has been our Shift Leader and House Mother since 2013! She stays overnight and weekends and is dedicated to making sure all the dogs (and humans!) are well cared for. She utilizes nursing skills, chef duties, and is always on safety patrol. She is also our webmaster and seamstress, making cute dog beds and covers! Katrina's pride and joy is her boy Scrappy! He is a Yorkipoo, born approximately 2011, and she tells him on a regular basis that he is the "smartest, handsomest, most awesomest boy in 15 galaxies!"
Mandy joined us as a Dog Handler in June 2022. She grew up with her family in the Ocala National Forest raising horses, dogs, and stray cats. Mandy spent 15 years in the education system working with children with special needs. She is a natural with dogs, and has her own Catahoula mix dog, a 2 year old named Bodhi. We're lucky to have her!
Krystel has been a Pack Leader with us since April 2017. Krystel has experience in Pre-School and Childcare, which is valuable knowledge to use with our 4 legged kids! She is an excellent, experienced dog handler, and is also our Artist. Krystel's fur crew includes Storm, Ash, and Blue! Storm is a hound mix born in 2021. She was Tracy's foster puppy, visiting BBC, and Krystel fell in love and adopted her! Ash is a kitty born 2019, and she was part of a litter of kittens discovered by the BBC daycare dogs along our back yard fence! That was quite a day! Blue is a Doberman mix, born approximately 2019, and adopted as a puppy.
