About Megan

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a lovely 8 acres just 35 min south of Downtown Omaha; we don't dog sit, we lead adventures, provide enrichment and lavish love. Your buddy will enjoy lots of exercise, sunshine and fresh air on our property and on nearby outings to private, family-owned spring-fed ponds, as well as public trails. We can help reinforce your training or work with your pooch on some scent work activities or agility with our equipment. Or we can just chill and play fetch in our yard. Unlike other dog boarding options, at Lucky 8 Acreage Dog Retreat, your buddy will get a minimum of 3 active hours of exercise outside everyday.
At night, we enhance doggy relaxation with aromatherapy diffusers, Kongs stuffed with homegrown chicken, dog puzzles and classical music. We have two poodles (Ernie and Marty) who are essential members of our family. My husband and I also have a 3-year-old son, four barn cats, ducks, chickens and sheep. We'll let your pooch meet all the residents -- but we'll limit games of chase to the humans and the canines. Guests booking 6+ nights enjoy a complimentary goodbye bath with Earthbath products. (So long, country dog smell!)
In some instances, we can pick up or drop off your dog for a small additional fee. Drop off is between 3pm and 9pm. Pickup is between 7am and 1pm. Daycare rates apply if you cannot pick up before 1pm. Your dog may sleep how he or she is most comfortable -- dog bed, cot or crate. Dogs that need to sleep in bed with us require an additional charge of $7/night. Holiday surcharge is $7/night. We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE ON HOLIDAY FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JANUARY 2017. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

We could not have asked for a better place to leave our 5 month old puppy for the first time! Megan was so great with Cinnamon. We got pictures and texts throughout the stay which helped our 3 kids(and us) out since this was the first time without her. They even got to FaceTime Cinnamon! I would highly recommend Megan and we will definitely be sending Cinnamon there again.

Megan was superb! I felt she was kind, gentle and sensitive to both my dogs' needs and spoiled them more than I do! She sent daily videos or pics and gave them a bath afterwards. Megan also updated me on any concerns, reassuring me (nervous furbaby mommy) that they are safe there. She knew I was nervous leaving them.

She is amazing! My boyfriend and I are super picky when it comes to someone watching our dog! I'm super glad that we were able to find Megan and do a play date first to see how our fluff ball would do with her. After our meet and greet, my boyfriend and I loved our experience with her and decided to start our reservation with her!! It was super easy, we filled out our info, selected when we were dropping off our dog, and when we were picking him up. After that Megan would let us know if it was okay for the time we needed her to watch him and just a click away when she confirms she can then tada!!!! You just click yes and everything is set! I'm truly happy that I found Megan! She cared for our dog like it was her own, we loved the fact she sent us pictures and updates of how our pup was doing! We highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for someone who will take care of their dog like their own!!!

We have been looking for a place like Megan's to leave our dog, Odin. It is absolutely an amazing environment and Odin loved it there. He didn't want to get in the car to go home. I think that he had so much fun. There were so many places to explore and play. I couldn't ask for a better place to leave him.

Our very energetic pup had a great time with Megan! She was quick and helpful communicating and we loved seeing pictures of him while we were gone.
Our black Lab, Bear, spent a long weekend with Megan and her family. We received a lot of candid photos and videos of him! Megan took him running twice a dsy, and to play in the pond and creek. He was fully bathed, happy and healthy ehen we picked him up. She even helped me with a skin issue that he had! I highly recommend Megan!!!

Awesome Megan is so wonderful. Archie loves her, texts and pictures daily made me happy that my Archie was having fun! Thank you Megang you are awesome!Archie will be coming back for sure
After leaving our dog with Megan, we feel that her vacation was almost more fun filled than ours. Megan did a great job of loving, caring, and keeping her busy throughout her stay. She treated Brenham as her own and we will definitely be using her again.

Megan was extremely easy to communicate with, provided great space for Ella and a few other pups. I received text updates, short video and a very tired pup upon pick up. Megan was friendly, kind and truly a dog lover. I would strongly recommend her to others. I used her because I attend a friend's wedding for the weekend.

My girls had such fantastic time. I knew when I left that they were going to be treated like family. Megan had never boarded a Husky before and she really impressed me by doing research to understand the breed. Megan has a lovely couple of acres for them to run and explore. The girls came back to me exhausted and freshly bathed. My Lab mix, who is a recent rescue, overextended herself a bit and Megan followed up with me to ensure that she recovered. I will definitely take them back.

5-Stars!!!! Megan was amazing and extremely responsive. I have an older lab who acts like a puppy. Megan was sure he was active but also got the down time he needs. She will take them swimming, hiking, and even bath them if you stay over 3 nights. We really appreciate all she did for us!

We were in town from Colorado for a wedding at the Lied Lodge. Megan's farm, Lucky 8 Acreage, was 15 minutes from Lied Lodge. Megawas s the best DogVacay experience ever! Her care and kindness that she showed our pups was tip top! We received multiply updateper day s from Megan of constant activity and entertainment. The dogs swam, fished, played fetch, went for walkand boat rides, s and had a movie night with the family.... She put the vacay in DogVacay! At the end of their stay they were washed and brushed, and never looked so good. She was very respectful of the rules and commands we use with our dogs, and helped reinforce them and also worked on new commands.

We loMegan and her family, you and MO and Soly had best the timShe was there to greet us with a smile and warm welcome at drop off and pick up. This was and Sfirst olys boarding experieand her warmth you made it extremely easy and comforting to leave tLucky Acreagege will be hard to top! hem. Wshe u you lived in Durango! Loo, Megan, us up if you're ever in SW Colorado ??

Hemi (Chocolate Lab) had a great time at Megan's. She went for walks and swims in the pond with some naps in the air conditioning afterwards. Megan has great knowledge on dog behavior, which means she was able to manage a 12 1/2 year old female (Hemi) and her two male dogs for 5 days so everyone got along. She texted us pictures-which helped as this was the first time we have used her ( or this service). We did do a meet and greet before we booked-as I was unsure how my dog would get along with hers.
Great experience-Megan truly loves dogs and I would highly recommend her.

Granite loved his stay with Megan! She sent pictures and videos and updated us regularly. He got to do things he has never done with us like swim in a pond, go for runs, and play with other animals. It was like puppy camp. Megan will definitely be our go to gal from here on out.

My poodle is extremely old and fragile. I was very hesitant to leave town and to leave him with someone that might not be able to care for his needs at this stage of his life as I do on a daily basis. Megan did an excellent job of caring for my old friend and even sent me a few photos of him while we were gone. This really gave me reassurance and put me at ease to enjoy my vacation. I would highly recommend her to care for your loved ones.

Found DogVacay.com before a weeklong Memorial Day trip. Jax had always stayed with family whenever I travel, but they weren't available being a holiday weekend. I didn't want to leave him in a noisy kennel with limited excercise and human contact. The first few sitters were in town with fenced yards. That would have been fine, but then I found Lucky 8 Acreage Dog Retreat. Megan, and her home, sounded perfect for my energetic Lab.

She was able to accommodate my 6 night trip, and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. When I arrived, she showed me around outside and inside, and I could tell Jax was comfortable with Megan as well as ear dogs, Earnie and Marty. Long hikes, swimming and lots of attention and care made this his vacation as much as mine. Regular updates and pictures let me relax on my vacation and not worry or feel guilty about leaving my buddy in a high stress environment.

If you can't stand the thought of your pet in a small kennel, I would highly recommend Megan. She loves dogs and welcomes them as part of her family. I will definitely call her again when I travel and family isn't available to watch Jax.....maybe even if family IS available.

I happened to be driving south so her location was on my way out of town, but even if not, I'd make the drive again regardless. Peace of mind and low stress for my dog is absolutely worth the short. drive.

Megan and her family really treated our dog Thea like one of their own. Thea got to go on long hikes, go swimming in a steam fed pond, played fetch and got lots of attention. We got frequent updates of her adventures! It was easy to tell that Megan had a lot of experience and truly enjoyed working with dogs and other animals. Her property was just off of US 75 and very easy to get to. We will definitely go through Megan when we travel out of town again and would highly recommend her.
