Lacy Dogs and Life After People

I’ve had quite a few interesting and unique experiences thanks to my insane dog Sadie, but this project certainly earned a spot in my top 10 list of Lacy stories. The History Channel’s award-winning series Life After People examines what would happen if humans suddenly disappeared. Producers were looking for a breed of dog that would defy the odds and survive without mankind. Well, Lacys certainly fit that description, plus feral hogs added an interesting twist to the narrative. I worked closely with the director and producers on the Texas-centric “Road to Nowhere” episode. In addition to collaborating on the storyline, recruiting dogs and handlers, prepping our expert and securing shooting locations, I was the de facto animal trainer for the show. Even though we started shooting at dawn and didn’t wrap until sunset, Sadie never stopped performing for the seemingly endless supply of cheese in my back pocket.

You can also watch highlights from “Road to Nowhere” on YouTube, but trust me, everything looks better on Vimeo.
