GINA RUTTER-DOG TRAINER

Hi I’m Gina, an immigrant from Colombia that arrived in the US at the age of 15. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, two lovely kids, two dogs, two horses and two sugar gliders! I have had a passion for the animal kingdom ever since I can remember. From volunteering and fostering rescues, to bringing  homedog trainer lilburn, ga animals that needed help. I taught my Jack Russell terrier many tricks and became quite interested in the process as well as their communication. I went to school to obtain an associate’s degree in science and went to UGA to study psychology, but I had this itch that I knew I had to work with animals. So finally with my husband’s support I took off to Ohio to become a dog trainer and get my certification at the National K9 Academy! I love what I do, and it is a pleasure to see how an unruly animal and a frustrated owner can turn into a wonderful pair through communication and understanding. I currently own a German Shepherd named Lotor and the newest member of our family is a Border Collie puppy named Kai. I look forward to helping you and your dog create a better relationship through training!

ABBIE BRAY WILLIAMS -PET SITTER/DOG WALKER


Abbie is one of our hardest working pet sitters. She’s been a part of the Good Dog family for over 7 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.

JACK NELSON-PET SITTER/DOG WALKERpet sitter bio lawrenceville

Hi, my name is Jack Nelson. I’m currently in my junior year of online school with Berklee Online pursuing a degree in Music for Movies, TV, and Games. As I’ve grown up, I’ve rarely ever not had a pet in my house. I’ve had a Beagle named Bailey for seven years and a cat named Kimmie for three. I love them so much and through taking care of them along with my two previous cats, I’ve grown a love for pets and now feel I can easily grow a bond with almost any animal. This job grants me that opportunity and I absolutely can’t wait to meet you and your pets and take great care of them!
