Why Hire a Professional Pet Sitter
vs a Neighbor or Friend?
By Terie Hansen   

Here is a true story about a family who left their dog in a care of a close family friend during the holidays. Like many other individuals out there, they’ve had friends care for the house and pets before without problems. Their dog would be allowed to stay in the comfort of his own home and even though they didn’t have to pay for it they made sure to give their friend a nice gift for being there and for helping out.

Make No Bones About It...Why Bones
are bad for Dogs
Everyone knows the line about giving a dog a bone.  It keeps them busy, quiets them, it placates them.  It makes them happy.  And so was born the cliché…
Certainly our dogs’ ancestors relied on bones, as well as the meat of their prey, in order to sustain themselves.  They effectively devoured them without second thought, crushing them for proper ingestion.   So if it was good enough for them, Rover will certainly benefit too, right?
Well, nutritionally, perhaps… but hold on before you head out to the butcher shop.  Read more here.

Why Does My Dog or Cat
Eat Grass?
By Terie Hansen
Have you ever wondered why your dog or cat is eating grass? Many pet owners now know that what you put into your pet nutritionally is very important. Many of the natural and better dog foods are getting some traction in the market place as pet owners become more educated about the difference between high quality ingredients versus pet foods consisting largely of corn, wheat and other fillers.

"Terie was wonderful.  She had an answer to every issue we had.  She was very patient and more than willing to spend a little extra time with us to answer all of our questions."
Rachel L.
"Good Dog! provided excellent one on one care.  Perfect for our attention seeking puppy.  Grace was so worn out when we brought her home that we knew she must have had a busy time!  We will definitely come over to play with Cole again!"
