Are Your Pet's Yearly
By Terie Hansen
If your pet has been vaccinated in the past, adequate antibodies may be present in their system. “While there is evidence that some vaccines provide immunity beyond one year, revaccination of patients with sufficient immunity does not necessarily add to their disease protection and may increase the potential risk of post-vaccination adverse events.”- AVMA vaccination principles. “The patient receives no benefit and may be placed at serious risk when an unnecessary vaccine is given” says Dr. Ronald Schultz. “Few or no scientific studies have demonstrated a need for cats or dogs to be revaccinated.”

Professional pet sitters know that animals are known for saving other animals from predators, but they are also known for saving humans from danger. We are so used to hearing negative stories about Pit Bull Terriers attacking or biting people that I thought it might be refreshing to hear some positive stories that are often swept under the rug because we seem to be a society that values drama, sensationalism, blood and gore over positive happy endings.

Bay Creek Bites
by Dr. Kristen Arp
This is the time of year when we start to think of the warmth of spring. And the shedding of heavy clothes in exchange for sleeker summer styles. And we start to think of our physique, and any extra pounds we may have added over the long winter.
While our pets do not suffer with the insecurities of body image, they do suffer many of the same health risks that we do with added weight. These can be serious, life shortening diseases, and minimally they decrease the quality of our friends’ lives. It is an ever more common problem for our pets. A recent survey conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention found that 53% of dogs and 58% of cats were overweight or obese. That means that over half of our pets are at risk for serious health problems! Read more here.

"We have used Terie for both training and pet sitting. The difference is amazing ! We can walk the dogs with confidence, they are less hyper and even allow guests to enter with ease! Can’t believe how much difference a few training sessions made. Our doggies love having you visit with them!! We are so comfortable knowing our girls are receiving the best care when we are away."
"My overall experience with Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care was excellent. The dogs were super excited and seems they had a blast with you. Thank you."
