Daughter to Marilyn and Harry, Heather runs both the boarding and
grooming aspects of Tulamar. From breakfast to bed time, Heather is
onsite to monitor your pets safety and care. Her beloved companions
include Banner the German Shepherd and Thistle the Jack Russel
Terrier. Both Banner and Thistle feel there is no greater happiness than
long walks in the woods and strolling (or occasionally racing) down the
lovely beaches that surround the area. Heather is also a life long lover
of horses and enjoys nothing more than pursuing her interests in the
equestrian field.
Tulamar Kennel was founded by Harry and Marilyn Burtwell in 1972,
when they left the Detroit area and purchased a farm in Traverse City to
live their dream of owning a kennel. They haven't looked back since!
Their love of animals has lasted a lifetime and over the years they have
raised champion Doberman Pinschers, bred registered Himalayan cats
and loved many a faithful friend of no pedigree but sterling personality.
Marilyn and Harry are enjoying retirement in the company of their
current companion and maker of mischief, Pearl Mae.
