“Hi my name is Jaymie. I am currently a student at GGC perusing a bachelor’s degree in science of mathematics. I love animals because they’re always there for us! They deserve the best care even the little rambunctious ones. I have been working and volunteering in pet care for years. Interacting with any animal makes me happy but bunnies will always have a special place in my heart. Regardless of whether they have fur or scales I treat my pets, and other’s pets as family members who need just as much love and emotional care as they do physically.”

Hi, My name is Allie! I am a sophomore in college hoping to get my bachelor’s degree in biology! I’m a huge animal lover!! I have played soccer for my whole life up until this year so I love to get outside and throw the tennis ball or kick the soccer ball with my sweet doggo! I’ve always grown up surrounded by so many pets which makes me want to pursue being a Vet! I have a dog of my own, Berkeley, and two other dogs in the house named Marvel and Jasper. I have 4 cats and a 7 yr old leopard gecko. I’ve volunteered for many shelters and I’ve loved every second of it. I’ve also pet sat for a lot of family and friends when they’ve gone out of town. I couldn’t imagine my life not being surrounded by furry friends so, I can’t wait to meet you and your pet family!



Are you ready for this kind of care?


Abbie is one of our hardest working pet sitters. She’s been a part of the Good Dog family for over 6 years! When she began with us she had three pups.

Baby, Chica and Chloe. Well things have changed a bit since then. She only has Chloe now but she also has a son named Graham! She works a full time job as well as pet sitting with Good Dog. She is a super hero! 

Here’s her story… When I was a little girl, I lived in a rural area, far away from my classmates, so my dog, was literally my best friend. The bond I shared with my dog was immeasurable and I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with animals. I worked at the Atlanta Humane Society for a few years, and have experience with a variety of dogs and cats. When I’m not working as a project manager at a marketing firm in Atlanta, I’m mom to an active toddler and my sweet dog, Chloe.  I can assure you that I will treat your “babies” like they were my own, not only because I’m an animal lover, but because it’s how I want my “baby” treated while I’m away.
