Blue Lacys may seem like the perfect dog for everyone, but they are not.  These dogs are high energy animals with a lot of hunting and herding drive.  They need a lot of exercise or a job to do or they will casue you problems.  They need to be challenged mentally and physically but they also need to be a close member of the family.  If they are not properly trained, they will be a problem for small children and cats.  Also, these dogs were bred to herd, bay wild hogs, and hunt and therefore will bark more than most breeds.
I love my Lacy Dog because he herds, blood trails, retrieves, and does everything I need him to do.  He loves being a member of the family and he loves to play.  He is the most intelligent dog I've owned and even at 3 years of age I'm still teaching him new things to do.
