Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care
We Love Pets, Just Like You..
Happy May!
Happy May & Yappy Mother’s Day to all the pet moms! Spend your special day with someone who loves you unconditionally, your pets! Did you know that having a pet can help you feel better and live longer? Well it’s true! Giving affection to your pet or watching your fish swim in their tank can improve your mood and lower your blood pressure. Studies have also shown that:
 
Dog owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets.
Playing with a dog or cat can elevate your levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax you.
Pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels (indicators of heart disease) than those without pets.
Heart attack patients with dogs survive longer than those without.
Pet owners over age 65 make 30 percent fewer visits to their doctors than those without pets.
So spend today and everyday improving your life and the life of your pet by spending just a little more time with them.
  
Hugs and Happy Tails,

Dog Parks: Good or Bad? 4 Simple Tips
by Terie Hansen
 
To dog park or not to dog park that is the question. A hotly debated question that I am frequently asked “ Is it ok to take my dog to dog parks?”. My answer “yes and no” depending on your dog. A dog park is for socializing (learning how to interact with other dogs) not exercising. Will your dog get exercise while at the dog park? Of course they will but never take a fully energized dog into a dog park or you could be setting your dog up for failure. Over excited dog = bad doggie manners = possible dog fight.  Read more here.

Pet Sitting Motto: "Have no fear when dogs are near!"
 
Favorite part of job: Being around the animals and giving the dogs all the loving and belly rubs. I also love talking to them like they understand exactly what I'm saying. We have casual conversation every time I take care of them. 
 
Hobbies: Taking pictures, mostly of dogs. When I'm home, I pet my dogs A LOT. When I go out in public if I see a dog I have to go over and pet it no matter what. My hobbies revolve around a dogs for the most part, they are just a big part of who I am.

Chattapoochee – Duluth
Offering separate areas for small and large dogs, this park has doggie sprinklers for cooling off and obstacle courses for extra fun!
 
Ronald Reagan – Lawrenceville
Although this is an older park it has a lot to offer with three enclosures and a separate long narrow dog run area. It has some agility equipment, doggie water fountains and shaded areas for you and your dog to cool off. This park also boasts beautiful walking trails perfect for draining some energy from your dog before you enter the dog park to socialize.  Read more here.
