Good Dog! Coaching & Pet Care
We Love Pets, Just Like You..
Happy June!
Wow, we are almost half way through the year and summer is fast approaching. As the weather warms up remember to educate yourself on keeping your pets cool and safe while having them outside. Also there have been an uptick in snake sightings so be on the lookout when walking your dog and know what to do in the event your dog is bitten.
Get out there, enjoy the weather and bring your pets with you!
We had a great time seeing everyone who stopped by our booth at Pawfest.  Cole's kissing booth was a great success! Thank you to all who visited our booth, got kisses from Cole and donated to the Gwinnett Humane Society!  The winner of our PetSmart gift card was Brittany Scott!
Hugs and Happy Tails,
Terie Hansen

Pet Sitter Thoughts:
Dog Days of Summer
Pet Sitter Tips
As we move into summer in Gwinnett and the surrounding areas, and the temperature rises, Good Dog Pet Sitters want you to know that with the increasing heat, so does the chance that your pet could experience heat related trauma such as heat stroke, burned foot pads and yes sunburn! According to the American Red Cross Heat Stroke(Hyperthermia) and Heat Exhaustion occurs when a dog severely overheats-most commonly in the spring and summer months when the weather turns warm and the dog has not yet acclimated to it. Dogs don’t have sweat glands, so the only way they can dispel heat is by panting and through the pads of their feet.

Training Your Puppy or Dog to
Accept Handling by You and Others
 How to Train Your Puppy or Dog to Accept Handling
Can You Touch Your Dog? Anywhere?

One of the most important things you can teach your puppy or dog is to allow handling and touch to any and all of his body parts. Teaching him that being touched either by you, a pet professional or accidently in an inappropriate way such as a pull on the ear by a child is no big deal or better yet is good. Training can help keep him calm and prevent aggression. Aggression can result in your dog having to be muzzled and/or sedated at the vet or groomer. This is no fun for your dog or the professionals that have to interact with your dog.
Using treats and a marker word (yes!) or clicker you can speed up the learning process.
Start by charging up your marker word. Say “Yes!” and treat. Repeat till you say the word and your dog’s eyes light up because he knows the treat is coming.
