Mensagem:  Celia, there is nothing wrong with "He is a good dog for me."  I can think of lots of contexts that would make the sentence sound quite normal.   He keeps you company, he protects you, he makes you laugh, etc.

"He is a good dog to me" sounds weird.  How could he be good to you?  Does he bring you a bone when you are hungry?  Does he wash the dishes for you?  Does he remember your birthday and gives you expensive presents and flowers?  Probably not.
