GINA RUTTER

SENIOR 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  home\ 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!

MARY TILLER

Hello! I’m Mary Tiller and live in Lilburn, Ga. with my two grade school girls.  When looking for a flexible part time job, I started searching ‘jobs with animals’ because that is what I like! Thank goodness Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care picked me! This job allows me to be around different types of dogs and hang out with them and go for walks. ALL great things! I have one cat at my home, thus…you guessed it, I love cats! And all their quirky personalities.  I am so happy to take care of your pets while you are away. I’m love long walks, petting 100 pets on the back, fetch over and over and over, and treating your pet how I would want my pet to be treated.

ZARIA RUSSELL

PET SITTER/DOG WALKER & KENNEL TECH

Hi, my name is Zaria, and I was born and raised in Snellville, Georgia. Sadly, I do not yet have any pets of my own, but just because I don’t own any doesn’t mean that I’ll love yours any less! After working in the restaurant industry for two years now, I have realized that another, animal-related, line of work would be more up my alley. That being said, I’m excited to set off on this adventure with Good Dog, and I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pets!

MICHAEL SCHEXNAYDRE

PET SITTER/DOG WALKER

Hi there!  My name is Michael!  My wife and I are originally from New Orleans, but have lived in Atlanta since 2003.  After a long career in retail, I’ve focused on other opportunities which allow me flexibility to take care of my children.  We have two boys, two dogs Remi and Snickers, and a bunny named Blackberry.  It seems like I  have always had a dog in my house since I was a young boy.  As an only child, it felt like my pets were more like siblings than a pet.  I look forward to meeting all of my new siblings and you as well.
