Friendly staff who comment on my dogs’ individual personalities each time I go. You can tell they love to get to know the dogs who are here.

My dog whines with excitement and cannot get into the place fast enough when I drop him off. Friendly staff. Always picking up a happy, tired pup at the end of the day.

We've taken Puppy K with Sarah and it was top notch considering it was over zoom. Started Puppy 1st grade with her in person and know we are going to learn a lot. This place is hard to find though. Look for green and blue sign that says Energy Consciousness. Your Dogs Best Friend's door is on the side.

I love dropping my dog off here because I know she'll get a lot of socializing time with other dogs.

We've been using Your Dog's Best Friend for about 7 years for boarding. We love the kennel-free boarding and so do our dogs! The "Salty" and "Sweet" play romp rooms are great for our dogs and their socialization! Highly recommend!

We left our family dog at this place on a Thursday and when we picked him on Sunday he had bite marks ad scabs all over his face that the attendant attributed to "playing." Look below and ask yourself if this looks like playing and reconsider whether you would entrust your pet to this place.

Our Diego comes home tired every single time! He loves napping too, on the stairs. The staff is really nice and they absolutely know what their doing.

These guys are great. No cages, your dog is in good hands. Plenty of open space. It doesn't matter if your dog is very active or more relaxed. Dogs are separated by level of activy. They really know how to treat your best friend like theirs. If it's a short stay to allow you to socialize your dogs or Longer vacation, you can trust them to have your dogs best interest in mind.

This is the best doggie daycare! The staff are fantastic. Not only does my dog love them, but they are friendly, professional and well organized. The prices are reasonable for both daycare and boarding.

First time dog owner, wanted a place to take her to be able to play in a safe environment. I was completely comfortable leaving her there with their attentive staff. She came home and slept like a rock.

Your Dog's Best Friends is an AMAZING company and they truly love and care about dogs. We used them for daily weekday walks for our 13 year old Lab for the past 10 months. I cannot speak highly enough of them - especially Yolanda! The only reason we aren't going to be using them regularly anymore is that my husband and I got new jobs where we can come home on lunch to walk her, but we will defintely still use them from time to time! Great communication and organization, and the best prices in the area by far. Our pup will miss you guys!!

My dog was killed at this facility on June 14th, 2019. She was there to receive a bath, and they took her outside the building without a no-slip leash. Despite detailing her fear of being grabbed in the multi-page application I filed in order to board and groom my dogs here, the handler attempted to grab her, she pulled out of her collar and was struck by a car. EDIT: I posted this same review on this business's Facebook page and they have responded by laying the blame at my feet because of the collar on my dog. They are now saying that once dogs are dropped off for grooming that they are walked through the parking lot to the grooming entrance. This was not made clear to me at any point - instead I was told that dogs never leave the building. They did not use a slip leash on her when walking her through the parking lot along a busy highway, and she pulled out of her collar. Additionally, this new narrative places her death almost immediately upon her arrival and one hour before they called me to let me know she had been killed.

My pet did not have a great experience here, but I have plenty of friends who have wonderful experiences here. 3 stars for a full indoor experience.

Recently found out a friend's dog was killed there when it slipped the leash on a potty walk...the dog had been dropped off for grooming??!? Such a horrible story. Stopped bringing my dogs in awhile ago because one would come home sick and the other just unhappy. The dog walkering, NOT the boarding service is 100% recommended. They are great with walks and reliabilty. Accidents do happen and they are really nice people, just lost my trust and now I feel obliged to pass on the grooming story as my friend is totally wrecked.

YDBF has been a great resource for me as a dog foster parent. Some of my fosters have not been good candidates for the dog park despite wanting to be social with other dogs. The dogs are always eager to go and tired when they come home, like my foster Jack, who usually slept for 10-12 hours (except for a quick pee break or two) after a day at playcare getting supervised socialization. Now, he's in his forever home with canine siblings, and happy as can be. Jack's behavior at YDBF let us know he could be placed in a home with other dogs without worry. And I'm really thankful I have YDBF available for my fosters. The dogs have a great time. They're supervised. The staff will note their behavior and let you know how your dog behaved. It's been all positive experiences, and I cannot recommend them enough.

We went in with our 12 week old pup to inquire about daycare and a tour of the facility. We were greeted soon as we walked in which is always a plus and the employees in the front were very friendly and helpful. There was a young lady that toured us and she was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice for our pup. Seems like a great getaway for your pups. I would have done 5 stars but the only two things I didn’t like was that the front area smelt like all dog urine. Most facilities try to keep the front area smelling good and they only have two play rooms and none really for smaller dogs themselves. Other then that I would recommend them to anyone looking.

We have been taking our pup Fred here for a long time and the staff is phenomenal. I highly recommend getting your dog groomed here. The prices are not bad and the groomers are perfect. I have not used their boarding/ daycare services yet but I will use them in the future.
