Using Comma
Let’s say your dog has so many great qualities that you just have to tell the world. When you list your dog’s qualities, you have to use a comma after each quality you list except the one that comes immediately before and. That comma is optional.

The dog is young, well trained, and good natured. Laughing

The dog is young, well trained and good natured.Laughing

The sentence is correct with or without the comma before and. (There are a few exceptions that require you to use the Oxford comma in a list, but they are pretty rare.) Just be consistent. Don’t switch back and forth in the same document between using the Oxford comma and not using it. 

By the way, this rule only applies to lists of three or more items. You should not use a comma before and if you’re only mentioning two qualities.

CryThe dog is well trained, and good natured.

LaughingThe dog is well trained and good natured.

This is true for proper names, ordinary nouns, verbs, or anything else.

CrySam, and Sarah take excellent care of their pets.

LaughingSam and Sarah take excellent care of their pets.

CryThe dog barks, and plays.

LaughingThe dog barks and plays.

Comma Before And That Joins Two Independent Clauses

The word and is a conjunction, and when a conjunction joins two independent clauses, you should use a comma with it. The proper place for the comma is before the conjunction.

On Monday we’ll see the Eiffel Tower , and on Tuesday we’ll visit the Louvre .

The sentence above contains two independent clauses (highlighted in green), so it requires a comma before and. (By the way, you can tell they’re independent clauses because each one could stand on its own as a complete sentence.)
