Meet The Owners
Stacy and Craig (owners), have over 50 years in the pet care field. They have made caring for pets their life-long profession. They assembled a staff of mature, experienced caregivers — including licensed veterinary technicians, adult trainers, and pet care professionals — who have been in the animal field for years.
Finding staff who “love animals” is easy. Employing people who know what to do with that skill is exceptional. Knowing your dog is being supervised by people who know dog behavior, animal instincts and how dogs play in a pack is an important part of choosing the right daycare for your canine friend.
We are a family because we make it our mission to know you, your dog and their behavior. We strive every day to meet the needs of you and your pet. We believe in providing business the old fashioned way. You will be greeted every day by a pleasant, experienced staff member with a smile on their face. The services we provide will be professional and affordable. If you have a question we will always have the answer. If you have a concern or problem, we will always have the time to help you. We want you to know that providing quality customer service and gentle, loving care for your family member is important to us.
Stacy grew up and currently lives in Garden City. She started in the veterinary field in 1985. Since then she has worked as a veterinary technician in a few different daytime hospitals and spent five years working nights at a busy animal emergency hospital in Chicago. Stacy worked at Plaza Veterinary Hospital in Farmington for 19 years and left there in July of 2013 to start Lucky Dog.
She has extensive experience working with pets and providing the quality care that they deserve. She is always happy to share her knowledge of animals. Stacy has always had a passion for dogs and has 3 small breed dogs to round out her family. Her husband George and her twins, Lucy and Dino, couldn’t get by without Sammy, Sizzler and Stewie to love on every day. Stacy enjoys breed identification and her favorite breeds are the Pitbull and the Maltese. Stacy is an avid sports fan, especially for the Detroit Tigers. She has played softball for 38 years, is an Advanced Master Gardener, President of the Garden City Garden Club and she enjoys photography.
Craig is the former owner of a popular doggie daycare in Livonia. He started Lucky Dog with Stacy during the spring of 2013 to continue his mission of providing quality care to local pet owners. He has been in the animal care field for over a decade. Daycare owner, kennel attendant, cat, dog and sometimes even a people rescuer, Craig has worn many hats over the years.
You will find him up front greeting clients and their pets or in the back supervising in the play rooms. He is always happy to see his canine friends for a play date or share his words of wisdom on training and behavior with anyone who asks. He is also a lover of cats and shares his home with three furry felines.
