About Lacey

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a lifelong animal lover and have volunteered in the past to foster and rehabilitate cats and dogs for animal rescue groups. Your dog will be as well cared for in my home as he'd be in yours. I will make sure that you as an owner are completely at ease having your fur kid in my care, and I will send you updates as often as you'd like. My husband Joe works full time, but loves coming home from work to play with the different pups in our care. I'm an artist who works from home and am available day and night to make sure your dog has an amazing stay with us. Our house has a fenced yard, and we're just minutes from the off leash area at Gabriel Park. We have a reverse osmosis system, so your dog will only get the best filtered water while in our care.

Our basset hound Duke is friendly to other dogs, but a bit grumpy to human guests and will give you a proper basset hound howl upon your arrival. He loves having doggie friends over for sleepovers and will chase and wrestle with his doggie pals. He gets along well with large and small breeds because even though he is a large breed, he's a shortie who stands eye level with most smaller friends. He tends to be low energy most of the time and is easy going.

From taking care of so many breeds, I've learned that all dogs are different. Maybe your dog wants to endlessly play fetch, just wants to sit and chew on her favorite toy, or wants to curl up on someone's lap. We allow dogs on the furniture, and your dog can snuggle in bed with us at night if she chooses. It's usually helpful to bring along your pup's favorite toy or his special blanket/bed that he always sleeps on unless your dog is possessive/aggressive of personal items. Does your dog hate it when someone takes away his toy or really dislike having his belly rubbed? Telling me about your pet's quirks is really helpful as well.

My house has big, low windows facing the street, and I've found that the dogs love gazing out at passers-by. We spend much of the day out playing and sunbathing in the yard, but dogs are never left unattended while outside. I don't go to the park every day, but make it a few times a week depending on the particular dogs in my care. We have plenty of toys and soft places to nap. Your dog will get individual attention and care while staying with us because we care about quality not quantity and want to build lasting relationships with repeated guests. My garden home is a pup's paradise, and my regular clients say that their dogs are always excited to come over.

A meet and greet is required before I can commit to your dog's first stay, even for last minute bookings, because my highest priority is ensuring a great stay for all my guests. I might request having your dog over for a few hours (at no cost) before committing to an extended stay as dogs sometimes act differently in the absence of their owners. Some owners even prefer to book a day of daycare before a long stay.

For dog boarding stays shorter than 6 nights, an additional day of daycare will be charged if you need to pick up your dog after 12pm. I can accommodate pick ups as late as 9pm and drop offs as early as 7am. I will try my best to accommodate your scheduling needs.
I charge extra for holidays and for certain special needs dogs as well.

We were previously located in the Greenway neighborhood in Beaverton.

I offer a 50% discount on my pet portraits to all of my pet sitting clients as well as to your friends and family. $75 (reg $150). Please ask for more details if interested.

Lacey provides the home away from home that I really like for my dog Theo, especially since she has the yard that I don't have and several pooches to play with so my dog Theo always comes home happy, hungry and ready for a good night's sleep.
Jessie so enjoyed her day with Lacey and her other boarders! She played and chased the ball and I know she is incredibly happy as I am too. Jessie is a lab and loves other dogs and people. Looking forward to having her spend time at your home more often. It is great to have someone you can trust and to have peace your dog is taken care so well. Thank you Lacey for your care and love of our Jessie girl.

Mia is my best fur pal. As an only dog in my house, she is an alpha dog and has very limited interaction with other dogs, which leads her to be anxious with other people and dogs.

At the meet-n-greet, Lacey and her dog, Duke were very welcoming. Mia nor I had any apprehensions.

I appreciated the every day check-ins from Lacey while I was out of town. The pics of Mia looking happy and the daily activities were so comforting. It certainly lowered my stress level and made my trip that much more relaxing and enjoyable.

I am certainly looking forward to my next adventure knowing that Mia will be well taken care of.

My dog Theo, was lucky to find an opening at Garden Home Fur Friends and was so happy when I picked him up it was like making him leave a party.
Poppy had a great stay at Lacey's. And I loved all the photos & videos that were sent, really put my mind at rest whilst we were on vacation. Will definitely be using Lacey again on the future.
very happy with Lacey. I will be having her watch Lilly again.
Lacey did a great job of hosting my dog Bailey! She kept me informed with pic and text about how Bailey was coping in a her new accommodations.I plan to use Lacey again in the future,Thanks again. Steve
Thanks Lacey! Appreciate that you are so considerate and aware of Gidget's needs.
Our dog loves staying with Lacey! She always comes home content.
Lacey was great we left Cameron with her and her 2 boys and they got along great with Cameron. Lacey sent me updates when I asked and took Cameron to the park and did activities with him even though her dogs might not be at the same energy level as Cameron all the time they got along great. I think Cameron loved it because when they wanted to play the pups played and when they wanted to rest they rested. I am so happy to have found Lacey and will use her the next time we go out of town.

Lacey and her husband are extremely sweet, and I feel very comfortable leaving my anxiety ridden shih tzu in their care. She responds quickly to text messages and phone calls, and sends photos at my request when I'm missing my fur baby. Definitely reccommend, and will be using her again in the future! :)

Lacey is a fantastic host for our dog Rita. She's kind and flexible. Rita always comes home tired and happy.
My dog, Rita came home happy and tired. Lacey is a great host and her bassets are welcoming to dog guests.
Lacey and her husband were so compassionate and went out of their way to socialize my dog with theirs and then took me to their house so I could see where she would be staying even on my extremely short notice. I got multiple pic updates every day and messages about how she was doing. I could feel and see that she was being taken care of as well as if she were at home with me. I will come back again and again to Lacey and I'm sure Buttercup will want to play with her new friends Duke and Earl again too!

Thanx Lacey, Beth P
