Over 30 years experience

Lacey is a proud, third generation dog trainer. She was born into the 'dog life' and exhibited her first canine at the age of 5. Competing successfully at 12 years old, she qualified as a junior handler to compete at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show when it was held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. A few years later she added stockdog competitions to her resume, competing at events from Florida to Washington and California to New York and winning national titles. She has worked with well known handlers from across the country and with more dog breeds than most can count.

Dog Training and Handling: Feature

Training Information


Lacey's training program is geared toward each individual and their situation, so every dog goes through an evaluation. Up to an hour long, the eval is packed with information as well as Lacey working with your dog, if time and circumstances allow. These are done at the owner's home as it gives the best assessment of every day life without any new distractions besides a 'visitor,' which is typical for most homes. Evaluations are $85 (plus mileage).


Private Lessons

Private lessons are up to an hour long and follow the evaluation. Lessons are completely dependent on the individual challenges and goals and progress is assessed each time you meet with Lacey. These are available at $55 (plus mileage).



Lacey is certified by the American Kennel Club to conduct the STAR Puppy classes. *Your dog does not have to registered with the AKC to participate.


Canine Good Citizen

Lacey is certified by the American Kennel Club to conduct Canine Good Citizen tests. *Your dog does not have to be registered with the AKC to participate.

Client Reviews

Dog Training and Handling: Testimonials

"Lacey has been so patient with me AND my dogs. Sadie and Sawyer are very stubborn Australian Cattle Dogs and it takes some firm convincing that I'm the boss. During training, I get frustrated, they get obnoxious, and she remains calm, showing me how to make confident corrections. I've really enjoyed working with Lacey!"

Elizabeth Clark Calkins


"Where do I even start with Lacey! She is the sweetest human and an amazing dog trainer! We have a golden doodle and I wanted to be able to take him places and feel confident that he's not going to drag me around and have manners! We get so many compliments on how well behaved he is and that is thanks to Lacey and all her help! We have a new addition to the family and we can't wait for her to help with training again!!"

Taylor Cooper


"Lacey does an excellent job training your furry family members. She helped us with our 2 Rottweilers and trained us as well. She takes the time to make sure you know how to work with them and makes sure you can handle your dog when she leaves. Our Rotties are known as some of the best behaved dogs in town thanks to Lacey! I highly recommend her!!"
