Good Dog manager lawrenceville, ga

Hi! My name is Amy Brandelik (the friendly voice you’ll hear when you call our office) and I just love being a part of Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care. I am a retired RN and recent empty nester, so I was thrilled for the chance pet sitter lawrenceville, gato work with Terie and all of these awesome pet sitters! I have had animals all my life and currently have 3 dogs- Roxie, Colby & Lilly, a cat Periwinkle. And my Grandpuppy Diesel makes frequent visits!

It is my pleasure to get your services set up so that your fur babies can experience outstanding care while you are away!!


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!

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!
