About Lucie

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am the matriarch to a family of four who absolutely adore animals! We have 1 dog and 2 cats who are all great friends! I am a homemaker/ Stay at Home Mom so I am here the majority of the day. My children are 8 and 12 so they are at school all day and I love the company of animals while my husband is working. We have a partially fenced in yard but also have an invisible fence.

We have a lovely 4 bedroom home on a dead-end road with very little traffic which is great for playing in the yard and going for walks. We have lake access so doggies who like to swim will have a blast when Michigan weather cooperates. My son loves to throw tennis balls for the dogs to play fetch and my daughter, husband, and I love to take the dogs for a lovely run.

I am happy to accommodate any specific needs you request for your pet. I am very familiar with pets who are afraid of loud noises or startle easily. My dog has gone through extensive obedience classes so she is very well behaved, calm and great with pets she is just getting to know. I am very comfortable administering medications of all kinds including shots.

I am looking forward to making your pet's time with myself and/or my family as comfortable as if they were with you.

Please read my special notes below and feel free to message me with any questions!

Lucie is wonderful with pets and kids. She treats her pets like her own children. She is loving and would be a great pet sitter!! She has always treated all pets like she would a person and goes above and beyond for her animals. She would be great at this job:)

I've known Lucie for all her life, since she was little she has had pets such as dogs and frogs later came cats, hamsters, ginea pigs and fish. All the critters have always liked her as she plays and takes care of them even when their sick or injured resulting in large vet bills. Lately she has had 1 dog and 2 cats of which one of the cats had to be put down due to unreversable health issues of a tumor. However within a month she with her family (husband and 2 kids) went out and adopted another kitten which is a lovable cat but mischeivious.
I would highly recommend Lucie as a animal sitter as she loves pets and gets along with them very well.

We were very pleased to come home from our week long vacation and find our 10 yr old lab very well rested. I think staying with Lucie was the best thing we could have done for our older dog as it was the closest thing to his normal routine at home. Thank you Lucie and family for taking such good care of Brewster. We will definitely be back.

Could not be happier! Thank you for treating our dog like one of your own and making her feel at home. Our doodle appreciated all the snuggles
Lucie and her family were so great to accommodate our huge dog on somewhat short notice on Christmas and Christmas Eve when our original sitter fell through. They were very flexible when arranging a meet-and-greet and were very welcoming of us into their home. Lucie was great with sending us a photo or 2 a day along with an update on how our boy was doing. They seemed to treat him as a member of the family (they even let him be in one of their Christmas morning family photos! His idea I'm sure, but it was sweet of them to let him in) We would love to use Lucie again for any future boarding needs!

Lucie is amazing!!! She took care of Kingston as if he was her own! I could not be more thankful for all the love and good care she gave him! Kingston is already looking forward to his next vacation with Lucie!
Our dog Bob had so much fun that he didn't want to leave! Lucie kept us updated with pictures while we were gone and it looked like Bob made a lot of new friends. Bad weather caused us to extend our trip by a day and Lucie was very flexible and kept him for one more day. Overall we were very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend Lucie to other family and friends who are looking for a place to board their pet.

Lucie was great with my springer spaniel. She sent me photos and texts and kept me informed of how things were going. My dog loved her kids and small dog, Zoe. I highly recommend Lucie and will use her again!
Lucie and her family took great care of Rocky two days in a row and we couldn't be happier. Rocky enjoyed all the love and attention he received and could not wait to go back the next day. I am so happy that we found Lucie and highly recommend her.
This was our first experience using DogVacay and we couldn't be happier with the service provided. Lucie and Chris were very warm and loving and welcomed our dog Teddy with open arms. Teddy is a 4 year old, 30 lb mini goldendoodle. He spent 2 nights with Lucie and he became a part of their extended family for those two days. Teddy got along great with Lucie's two children and her own dog Zoe. They had no restrictions on Teddy and he had full access to the whole house and all furniture. They took him on several walks and played with him. Lucie also sent several updates and pictures to us everyday - it was obvious Teddy was in good hands and it totally put us at ease to enjoy our vacation. I would highly recommend using DogVacay and especially Lucie's services if you find yourself in a need for a dog sitter...I know we will definitely be reaching out to her again. Thanks Lucie!
