Marlaine says “Caring for other people’s pets is rewarding and enjoyable”.

Before becoming a pet sitter for Good Dog, she cared for her own pets. ” Our family presently has one Chihuahua, two cats, one gerbil and one rabbit. In the past,  I have taken care of pets for family and of course neighbors, including two Huskies,  a Boxer-Hound mix,  a miniature Poodle  and numerous cats.  Moreover, all of the animals received loving care”.



I’m Cassie, I’m a senior at Georgia Gwinnett College about to graduate with my B.S. in Environmental Natural Science. Having grown up surrounded by dogs and cats my entire life, my love of animals started at a very young age and I knew I wanted to wpet sitter bio cassie willcoxonork with all types of animals when I got older. 

Currently my house has 3 dogs. My baby Charlie, a Labrador/Golden Retriever mix, my sister’s dog Yogi, a Chow Chow, and our oldest Pookie, a Pomeranian. Before working with Good Dog! my passion was pet sitting for family, friends, and neighbors, mostly my aunt’s 5 dogs ranging from a chihuahua to a very large German Shepherd. I love being a pet sitter because it gives me the opportunity to meet and bond with so many new pets and their owners, enjoying all the different personalities of our client’s pets. It’s rewarding when an animal loves seeing you when you walk in the door. I’ll spoil and love on your fur babies as much as I can while I’m visiting them. 

When I have free time I enjoy going to concerts, hiking, traveling, spending time with my friends, watching movies, and playing video games. 


Hi. My name is Jordan Glasgow, and my pup’s name is Carson. He is a 3 year old Australian Cattle Dog, and my best sitter in stone mountain, ga

Currently, I am pursuing my B.S. in Biology at the University of North GA. My ongoing passion for animals, led me to multiple years in animal care. In addition, having worked in several kennels, provided me with exposure to many species, breeds, and temperaments. 

Furthermore, my experiences over the years, have led me to progress to working as a Veterinarian Assistant in daytime practices, as well as a emergency clinic. Throughout all my years in animal care, I’ve taken a particular interest in animal behavior. This interest has led me to pursue a personal goal in becoming a dog trainer with Good Dog, and utilizing every chance to interact with dogs, and animals in general.

Whether it is pet sitting, dog walking, or training, I am here to help!

Are you ready for this kind of care?


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 pet sitter bios of Abbie Bray Williams pet sitter in snellville gaimmeasurable and I knew from a young age that I wanted to work with animals.  Currently, I am a volunteer with two animal rescue organizations so I have experience with a variety of dogs.  When I’m not spending time taking care of the dogs at the animal shelter, I’m “MOM” to my two dogs, Chica and our newest addition Chloe. My dogs are my babies and I spoil them rotten.  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 “babies” treated while I’m away.


Currently a sophomore at Georgia Tech studying Nuclear and pet sitter lilburnRadiological Engineering. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life, and have had a natural affinity for all kinds of animals. I love spending time with my boxer, Angel, and my yellow lab, Daisy throwing a ball for them, taking them on walks, or just giving them attention.

Prior to Good Dog, I would pet sit for family, friends and neighbors. In my free time, I like to go camping, cook and play video games.

I truly enjoy the company of pets and I look forward to providing you peace of mind and the utmost in care for you and your four legged family members!


“My name is Gianna and I reside in the Sugar Hill area with my fur Pet sitter in Sugar Hill Giannadaughter, Oakley. Oakley is an Australian Shepherd mix who I rescued 3 years ago when she was born in a shelter. I quickly fell in love with the breed and wanted to do more to help others like my baby, Oakley. I decided to become a foster mom for a nationwide Australian Shepherd rescue group. I have fostered puppies, to senior dogs, some with disabilities and some who are bouncing with energy. I absolutely love caring, training, and loving on pets of all kind and I am excited to be able to do it everyday! 🙂 “
