DOG TRAINING TESTIMONIAL by Jesse S.

I would use Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care again in a heartbeat! As I’ve moved out further and further away from the city of Atlanta it had become so difficult to find a cat sitterpet sitting service who is reliable and cares about your pet. I switched to Good Dog! after an exhaustive search for a new pet sitting service after my previous one didn’t care for my cat as well as they had in the past. 

I thought that my pet sitter (Kim L.) was very communicative and reliable. When I came back home, the apartment was in good condition and my kitty Sky was healthy and well taken care of. While I absolutely love Good Dog!, this was the most that I’ve spent per visit for pet care. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes you have to spend a little more to get a better result.

When there was a location conflict with the original pet sitter who was going to look after my kitty, she not only called me to tell me about it but also came along during the meet and greet with the pet sitter who ended up looking after my cat. Plus, Good Dog! was the only company that I was able to find that was who able to offer services in the Tucker area.

It was all very professional, yet personable from scheduling the service via Shelly to having Kim take care of my kitty.

The kitty report card was the best part of the pet sitting experience. In the past, I’ve used another pet sitting service and they NEVER provided anything as detailed. This was extremely helpful to also gauge my cat’s health since there was a vet emergency that came up right before I went out of the country. These reports helped ensure that my cat was maintaining her weight and eating well. I got playtime photos of my kitty while I was away, which was great to see her being happy and playful. Very comforting.

This first time experience with Good Dog! was well worth the searching to find the needle in the haystack. I would (and plan to) definitely use them again.

We have been afraid to take even 2-3 day trips because we want our animals (family) taken care of. At first my wife was not happy about leaving her pets at home during our vacation. Katie, made her feel at ease, came to our home for a visit before we left, took information we never thought of. We received several photos of each of our 4 pets each day we were gone.  Katie took great pictures (our pets looked so happy) and sent us text messages, even took the time to text my wife a couple extra times to make her at ease. Hire 10 more people like Katie!!! Katie, even grabbed our mail and took the trash on trash day. WOW!   We stayed an extra day and were very accommodated!

We compared this service to our vet. The vet prices were double and they stayed in cages most of the day. With Good Dog, our animals had their normal home to play in and go out in. We will use your services again and will be more comfortable in the future to go out and have fun and I will tell everyone I know to use you as well!

Super job with Harlan and Halley! The pictures and videos were great, along with the texts I knew exactly what was going on. I was extremely pleased with the overall value and will be booking more services soon.

Keena’s great care of Martie gives me peace of mind while my husband and I are both working. The photos made me smile on very busy days at work. Thanks, Keena, for sending the photos. I really appreciate knowing how Martie’s day is going.

Cindy D.

 

All 3 cats, even Jasper, our skittish one, did not run and hide when Gwynne came. They greeted her. I like to hear these details and makes me feel good that they are getting more comfortable with her, as we don’t go away very often. Everything went well and the cats enjoyed her being in their own home. Our recent trip was close to a last minute one and Shelly was wonderful scheduling Gwynne. Very appreciative and grateful.

Heidi M.

 

Sam will be very excited to see Gwynne as he told me that he loves her as well as dog walker favorite boston terrier samKeena!  My favorite part of Tuesdays & Thursdays is coming home to their notes – I often laugh out loud at Keena’s, and Gwynne’s are the sweetest ever!  I can tell they both adore Sam, and the feeling is mutual.  He gets so excited in the mornings when I tell him that “It’s Keena (or Gwynne) Day!!”

Thanks again, and also thanks for providing such a great service with outstanding people!

Thank you once again Good Dog! for taking such excellent care of my 4-legged kids while I was out of town for Thanksgiving! Marlaine, thank you for doing such a wonderful job with Gibson & Margarita! I know they tended to hide under beds, but the reports you left let me know how great a job you did! Margarita does love to chase her treats! The value is excellent for all the you do while watching my pets. I know I leave my “kids” in good hands anytime I use Good Dog! You all are the only pet sitting service I will ever use! You are all the best!

Thank you so much for taking care of our little special needs doggie. He was pooped for a couple days, but has sprung back into action. We cannot thank yJackson Horton at Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Careou enough for all your help with Jackson. He is perhaps the most unique of all dogs I have ever owned and he is so smart (and fast), but his disproportionate fear of people and animals, though slightly ameliorated over the past two years, makes us so sad for him. We are still trying to inculcate your wisdom in his handling and teaching. Seeing him interact with other dogs at your house nearly brought us to tears and we are so grateful to you for that. I have noticed a bit more concentration and better command behavior. We so appreciate your talent and love for Jackson – (He does, too!)

GT I recently used Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care because my regular pet sitting lady was unable to due to a death in the family. I know Terie and decided to give them a try. I am EXTREMELY picky about who I let take care of my boy and stay in my house as well. I had to fill out alot of paperwork since they try to cover all the bases and then Terie and the sitter came to meet me and GT and go over all my requirements. They are very thorough and I was at ease while gone. I checked in a few times with the sitter and everything was going good. I would definitely recommend Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care and plan on using again in the future if the need arises. Thanks for taking such good care of my boy!

pet sitter with cat in duluth, gaAbbie is super!  We were delighted with her pet sitting–everything was perfect and she even spotted our cats.  I think she’s a natural.  We really appreciated the superior quality of the care–when I met with Abbie before her assignment, I felt quite at ease that things would work out and they did. We will be out of town again soon,  I’m sure all your sitters are excellent, but we would love to have Abbie again if possible, so that our cats can really get used to her. Thanks again for providing a really superior pet sitting service.

Julie B.

I want to thank you all again for the excellent pet sitting you did for my cats while I was out of town on vacation last week.  I want to compliment Marlaine and the wonderful job she did  while watching my two “4-legged children” – Gibson & Margarita!  She left very detailed notes each day about all she did for my “kids” and it was very much appreciated.  Thanks again for the excellent job you all do at Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care!

Good Dog! Coaching and Pet Care has helped us so much with our dog Huey, who we rescued from Hurricane Katrina when we were in Louisiana. We don’t know Huey’s background, but were having problems with her attacking anyone who walked into the house that she did not know. Huey was also terrible with other dogs (she bit the ear off of my mother’s dog and we had to rush the dog to the vet). We were afraid that Huey was beyond training, but thanks to Good Dog! Coaching and Pet Care , Huey is now trained to sit and stay calm while people (that we invite over) enter our home. We have learned strategies that not only make us and our guests feel comfortable, but also show Huey that we are in control of the situation and we can have her out in the room with us now instead of being crated when guests are over. We are still working on her social skills with other dogs, but now, thanks to our training sessions, Huey can walk past other dogs without going crazy. It has made my daily walks with her a treat instead of a nightmare. Also, we have relied on Good Dog! for their Pet Care services on nights when work requires that we have to stay very late. Not only do they come in and feed her, they go above and beyond, by playing with her, taking her for a walk, and leaving a note to let us know how everything went while we were away! We always get helpful tips, too. Huey used to smell like a bag of Doritos, despite frequent baths. I spoke with Huey’s trainer and she gave me suggestions about her feedings and diet and she is no longer smelly!

I’m very grateful to Good Dog! Coaching and Pet Care for helping me turn a smelly, cantankerous, poorly-socialized dog into a well-behaved, much-loved member of our family!

I was so delighted to meet Terie. I love her spirit! My boys love Auntie Terie! Wow! I could not ask for better service, amazing! I will recommend Terie to everyone I come in contact with. It is very hard to find people passionate about what they do.

We have used Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care for both training and pet sitting. The difference is amazing ! We can walk the dogs with confidence, they are less hyper and even allow guests to enter with ease! Can’t believe how much difference a few training sessions made. Our doggies love having you visit with them!! We are so comfortable knowing our girls are                  receiving the best care when we are away.

DeNita M.

I am very grateful to have had Terie as an instructor for Max and I. I’m looking forward to having Max enrolled in a more advanced class. Can’t thank you enough. Your services were exactly what we needed!

It was great not to worry about Toby while we were out of town!

I am so pleased with the results and training Sheba received. When I first called Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care, Sheba was a bit much to handle. Now she is a very obedient, sweet and loving dog! I consulted a few trainers before calling Good Dog! and their prices, by far were the best I found. Thanks a million!

Kimberly L.

 

Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care takes care of my 3 cats when I am away. They are totally trustworthy and reliable. My cats love them! Very reasonable rates and worth every penny to know my pets are well cared for! In the past my cats were initially mad at me when I came home from a trip. After using Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care they are happy, it may be they like Good Dog more than me!

Janet L.

 

Hiring Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care was an awesome experience. Professional and trustworthy-you rock!

Paula V.

 

 

Terie was great. So patient and generous with her time and expertise. The housebreaking alone was worth the cost of the training. Terie is very gifted and intuitive with dogs. I would recommend her to anyone requiring dog training services.

Nancy K.

 

Awesome experience. It’s obvious you love what you do. Terie you are awesome. You taught me so much valuable information. I feel more like the pack leader which is essential with 5 dogs.

Terie is receptive and knowledgeable about dogs and humans! She not only listened to and helped us accomplish our goals, but was a consistent encouragement throughout the process even now! Excellent value, unmatched! Terie is generous with her time , gentle, yet firm in her delivery and made us want to be better dog parents. Terie we cannot thank you enough for helping us discover the true abilities our Lucy has. She was a wild attention seeking Jack Russell Terrier who is now comfortable on her own and a little mellowed-being a Jack, she will never be totally calm but she is much more enjoyable now. Without your support and guidance she would likely still be trying to assert her dominance over us and Toby. Now that she knows who is in charge she no longer needs to be the center or all activities in our home!

It meant so much to know that you were here to give my cat her medicine on time, feed, water and see if she was doing okay while I was away.

Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care took good care of my pooch and really made him feel at home.  Great job!  He had a great time.

Your true concern for my pets and their well being gives me the greatest peace of mind.

I have had a great experience every time I have left my dog with Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care.  Guiness loves his time with them.  As a pet owner, I enjoy the updates and pictures that I receive.  I know my dog is in good hands when I leave him.

Cathy S.

 

I came home to a happy dog!  The cost was reasonable and well worth the peace of mind.  I was pleased knowing my dog was cared for.  We just needed a quick midday potty break, but Good Dog! went the extra mile by playing with her.  My dog is strong and stubborn and we don’t just trust her with anyone, but we knew their sitters could handle her!

Erin C.

 

Thank you, Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care!  You went above and beyond.  Primo loved you and you made my time away more enjoyable knowing he was taken care of.  Thanks again!

We have a large family and you were excellent at training us all! My dog is benefitting greatly from “our” training.  You are the best!

Michelle & Mark E.

 

Thank you for traveling and all of the great lessons.  Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care is good for their price and a lot of bang for your buck.

Miles B.

 

Good Dog! provided excellent one on one care.  Perfect for our attention seeking puppy.  Grace was so worn out when we brought her home that we knew she must have had a busy time!  We will definitely come over to play with Cole again!

Jason T.

 

Terie is flexible, dependable and goes above and beyond.  Her connection to animals is amazing.  The price may seem expensive at first but Terie gave more in time & quality than the contract stated.  She took our dog to her home and worked intensely so I did not have to surrender our 2 senior dogs who had developed aggressive behaviors.

Ann & Johnny M.

 

Bay loves staying with you.  In fact, he seems to like it even better than home!  We really appreciate all of the care and attention you give.  We will refer you whenever we can.

Buffy M.

 

Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care is my only choice for pet care.  They care for my dogs as though they are their own.  I NEVER have to worry about the care, attention and love she receives when I am away.  I really enjoy the photos documenting the fun Pippa has when she is staying with you!  She loves playing with Cole and any other dogs who are there.  Very good for socializing.

Christy G.

 

Value?..Not having any concerns about my furry baby while I am away..Priceless! Boarding in a home environment also gives us the benefit of personal training 24/7.

Calvin & Amy C.

 

Terie made the training fun for both of us.

Brenda B.

 

The difference is amazing!  We can walk the dogs with confidence.  They are less hyper and even allow guests to enter with ease!  Can’t believe the difference with only a few sessions.

The McGuinn Family

 

Terie is a very positive person and a joy to work with.  She gives you all the tools to effectively train your dog using positive reinforcement.  It’s up to the owner to implement them!

Kathy S.

 

Terie is a very patient person.  It helped our relationship with Sierra and Orly immensely.  It is worth every penny!

Debbie B.

 

It was amazing to see the immediate relief that our dogs and household experienced.  Terie has a “spirit” that not only spoke to our dogs, but also spoke to our family dynamic.  Spending time with her has transformed our household.

Laura & Mark M.

 

Terie trained us (and our dogs got a lot out of it too)!  She took her time to get to know us and our animals.  We will highly recommend her to anyone who needs an excellent dog trainer.

Mark & Janet C.

 

We had such a great experience with Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care that I don’t even know where to begin.  Jasmine responded immediately to Terie.  It was amazing to watch the transformation happen so quickly!  She was very thorough in not only teaching us the techniques that we needed, but she also explained why Jasmine had certain behaviors & what Jasmine was looking for from us.  Terie never rushed our appointments.  In fact, she was careful to make sure all our questions were answered and we were comfortable with each new technique.  We would highly recommend Good Dog! Coach & Pet Care to anyone looking for help with their dog.

Paula W.

 

Terie was so patient with us.  As new pet owners, we had a great deal to learn.  She helped us get control of ourselves and our pet.  Having the in home sessions were priceless!  My puppy learned in her own environment which made retaining information easier.  Terie is a true professional.  Following her instructions, while time consuming and hard at times, has really paid off.  Our puppy is truly a Good Dog!

Valencia & Jerry A.

 

Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care was very professional and I immediately felt comfortable leaving my boys in their care.  I have added them to my contact list and will definitely use them often.

Deidria D.

 

I am one of those pet owners who never feels that anyone can take care of my animals as well as I can.  Not anymore!  Even my special needs animal received so much TLC in my absence that when I came home he was happy and healthy!  My dogs loved Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care and I can now go away with my mind at ease.  Thank you!

Laurie B.

 

I could not have imagined a better result.  This was the best investment we have made in many years.  Terie was everything we needed and much more than expected.  Cannot recommend her enough!

Russ & Rosie H.

 

Good Dog! Training has been phenomenal!  My dog does what I need her to do when I need her to do it.  I have learned life long lessons that will help me teach my dog.  The knowledge that is gained through this program will always be with me  There is no price for that!  I truly enjoyed working with Terie.  She was able to teach me lessons to help with my dog based on specific problems we were having.  Now my dog is so well behaved!

Melissa G.

 

Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care was professional all the way.  We were completely comfortable having them watch out for our poodle and look forward to a long term relationship.

The Crouse Family

 

Our experience was phenomenal.  Terie was so warm and immediately made not only us humans feel comfortable but our dogs as well.  Now that we can walk our dog with a leash, knowing her life span has probably increased, is worth so much more than any amount of money.  Thank you for your expertise and your warmth.  You have given our family a whole new life with Cali.  We now take her hiking with us and she loves her leash!

Bo & Raylene C.

 

My dogs were very happy and unstressed when I returned.  By their body language I knew they had fun while I was gone.

Mike A.

 

I am very grateful to have had Terie as mine and Max’s instructor.  I am looking forward to having Max enrolled in a more advanced class.

Drew D.

 

We weren’t sure how well a 10 year old dog would adapt to or even be willing to change/modify her behavior. We were pleasantly surprised.  It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but after seeing the results, it was money well spent.  Terie was awesome and showed great patience in working with our dog and cat.

Tracey A. & Kim L.

 

Buddy was so happy to spend time with Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care.  He was well cared for and Terie’s training is awesome.  For the time spent, it was a great value both for training and boarding.  I have enjoyed working with her and seeing Buddy respond to her.  It was a pleasure to have her in my home as well as watching her work with Buddy.

The doggies love having you visit with them! We are so comfortable knowing our girls are receiving the best care when we are away.
