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.
