Our History

luckydog day & night care was founded in 2004 by Mandie Stuhan. Her vision was to offer an unmatched level of professional care for each and every guest. Treating the client’s dogs how she would want her own dog’s to be treated: with individualized care, professionalism, patience, and respect. That vision lives on today.

Our Pack

Dee Dee Fasquel - Owner 

I have been the owner of Lucky Dog since 2018. I worked in and studied veterinary medicine for 7 years, before beginning a 10 year stint in corporate America. I have always had a passion for animals, and dogs in particular.  My French Bulldog Mr. Bubbles has been a guest of Lucky Dog for the last 5 years and he is very excited to be moving into ownership position. We have big plans for the future and will continually strive to provide the best possible experience for all of our dogs and the parents who care for them. 

Kristin Frosland - Lead Handler & Employee Education Director

Kristen has worked as a luckydog dog handler since June 2007. She has shown outstanding leadership skills and a great big heart for all of our canine companions. Kristen plays a big role in a healthy and safe daycare. Her job encompasses new dog evaluations, assessing pack dynamics, and employee continuing education. What she loves most about her job is learning about animal behavior and psychology and growing through the connections with the dogs and their people.
