When Gila and Jon Kurtz first created and built Dog is Good in 2008, they fostered in their company a singular business principle with their customers, vendors, employees, and partners – Always commit to doing what is right in the best interest of others. And as the community grew in numbers, that principle attracted dog-loving go-givers who also wanted to exemplify the same fun, positivity, personal growth, and action that Gila and Jon reflected. 
And that is the moment Dog is Good for Good became an reality receiving tax-exempt
status as a 501c3 in 2021 and leverage the Dog is Good message to do Good. 

People helping dogs help people.
