Sun Prairie’s Premiere Place for Dogs

Greg Altman founded Lucky Dog Daycare in 1998, with a handful of dogs and a dream. His vision was to give our furry friends something to bark about during the day while their owners are at work. Today, that dream has become a reality. With approximately 50 campers each day, Lucky Dog Daycare has become Madison, Wisconsin’s premiere place for dogs to socialize, exercise, and have good old-fashioned fun. Lucky Dog’s staff of counselors is committed to providing a safe, supervised, and (most of all!) stimulating environment for dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages. Lucky Dog soon expanded into boarding, and now we have the set-up for your pup to have a vacation while you’re away. In addition, Lucky Dog Daycare makes an ever-growing list of services available to their campers, such as nail trims, treats, and training!

Megan, Operations Manager

“I enjoy nearly every aspect of working here. Not a day goes by that I don’t enjoy what I do. I love to hear people tell me they can see how all the staff, including myself, absolutely loves what ‘they’ do. Working with the dogs each day reminds us that we don’t do this just for the dogs, but their owners. Everyone should get the opportunity to let their dog play and stay at a place that makes both humans and animals feel like they have a second home or a safe haven for their doggie family members. My past and current dogs have all had the luxury of joining for daycare at Lucky Dog, and it truly is a treat to have your canine family as tuckered out as you after a long day! I have attended UW-Madison Small Business Development Center for their Leadership Series and their other small business classes. In my free time I enjoy eating anything that I did not have to make myself, animal sitting, very long walks with my dog, and bad SiFi movies.” (Megan has been with Lucky Dog since July 2011.

“I love to cuddle and play with all the dogs. When it is hot outside I will hop in the pool with them! I am drawing all the time and mainly it is of dogs. You will find my ‘doodles’ all around Lucky Dog. I currently have a leopard gecko (Smudge), a corn snake (Candy), and a rescued Chihuahua mix (Rose). I attended school for Graphic Design and then decided I enjoyed illustration more, and I hope to someday go back to finish.” (Kylie has been with Lucky Dog since 2014.)
