luckydog day & night care was founded in 2004 with a vision to offer an unmatched level of professional care for each and every guest. Treating the client’s dogs how one would want their own dogs to be treated: with individualized care, professionalism, patience, and respect. That vision lives on today.
Dee Dee Fasquel - Owner, Operations Manager
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 the business side of corporate America. I have always had a passion for animals, dogs in particular. My French Bulldog Mr. Bubbles has been a guest of Luckydog since 2013 and he is very excited to have moved into ownership position. We will continually strive to provide the best possible experience for all of our dogs and the parents who care for them.
Stacey Lambert - KPA CTP, CPACM
Daycare Manager, Certified Dog Trainer, AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, Luckydog Canine Academy Director
Stacey Lambert started at Luckydog in 2018 and has been exemplary employee since day one. She obtained a degree in athletic training from University of Connecticut but found her true passion when she adopted her two rescue dogs. The challenges she faced with them, and the fosters she’d later take on, helped her realize that working with dogs and their people was what she felt she needed to be doing. A cross-country move and finding her way to Luckydog was exactly what started her journey into the dog training world.
Now a graduate from the Karen Pryor Academy of positive reinforcement, she looks forward to helping pet parents with the challenges they may face with their canine companions. Her training philosophy includes force-free, positive reinforcement training with compassion and a deep understanding of dog behavior. She manages our daycare program and tailors each training session to the pet parent’s needs. She moves at a pace that keeps your dog happy, comfortable and confident, and fosters an environment of positive learning experiences.

These attributes combined with her excellent dog handling skills have earned her a position on our management team. You will see her manning the front desk most weekday afternoons. Jocelyn has an amazing work ethic and is an all around rock star!
Mackenzie Champion - Professionally Trained Groomer
My name is Mackenzie. I have been working in grooming salons since 2010, and became a groomer in 2014. I remember dropping my family dog (Maggie, a cockapoo) off at the groomer with my mom as a kid. I was so excited to see her in a few hours, transformed, and happy to be fresh and clean. I was also mystified about how they made bows stay in her ears! I'm happy to say I've learned a lot more than how to apply bows in my years as a groomer! I take pride in my hand scissor work, everything from breed profiles to doodles! I love to help pets and their parents during shed season, in previous work places I've been known as the deshed queen.
I have a year old English Shepherd named Chevy, he is my shadow and best friend. Chevy was born with only 2 toes on his left paw but is able to live his best life just the way he is. I also have a small herd of alpine dairy goats that I have bred since 2004. I show under the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) as well as participate in the Linear Appraisal, DHIR, conventions and as many National Shows as I can.
My goats and Chevy are my world, which I feel helps me do a better job for you because I know your pet is so much more than "a dog". For a lot of us our pets are our family, friend and companion. The love they give is unconditional and that is so important to have in our journey on this big rock flying through space. I look forward to meeting you and your pets and giving them the best care I can while they are with me in the salon!
Laurel Parr - Professionally Trained Groomer
I love spending my day building connections with pets! In my 10+ years experience in pet-grooming, I’ve had the opportunity to see my clients’ fur-babies grow from adorable quirky puppies to confident sweet dogs. My fur-family consists of an energetic Heeler mix, Bruno, and a grumpy old cat named Zolinda. They definitely have strong personalities and are (slightly) neurotic but I wouldn’t have it any other way. As a hiking enthusiast, I first came to Eugene to visit a relative and instantly knew this is where I wanted to be. I’ve been in Oregon for over 7 years now and I’ve embraced every minute of it! I love the sense of community I’ve experienced here and value that same connection to community at Lucky Dog. I feel incredibly grateful to be part of a team who is deeply dedicated to the safety, health and compassionate care of animals.
Our staff offers you and your dog an unmatched level of care, comfort, and safety. We invest in our team's skills so they continue to grow in their ability to provide excellent service in the Eugene-Springfield area.
