After checking out several facilities, we found Best Friends in 2006. Over the years I have used both daycare and overnight. We have grown to depend on the care received both by our former dog Jill, and over the last year with Ginger. Best Friends has two facilities both available with 24 hour coverage, grooming, training, dog washing, one on one, daycare, and overnight services. Our pet Ginger did the training program, has learned many things such as sit, stay, bye, high five, leave it etc. I have full confidence when I'm away that Ginger is getting excellent care.

We have been taking our American Bull Dog / Lab mix, Riley, to BFFE for daycare several days a week, since he was a puppy, he is now almost 4 years old! The staff could not be any more accommodating to us. They really seem to care about Riley. Every time we pull into the parking lot, Riley is bouncing around the car in total excitement, so I know he is happy and enjoys his time at Best Friends Fur Ever. At the end of the day, he comes home tired, so I am happy too. The facility is always clean and the staff is always friendly. We will continue taking Riley to daycare without concerns or reservations. Thank you very much for providing such a great service!!!

Where do I begin? We love Best Friends Fur Ever! More importantly, Toga LOVES BFFE! Toga has been a frequent boarder for over 11 1⁄2 years. Whenever I say "we're going to see your friends," Toga immediately stops in her tracks and heads over to my car. For us, boarding works beautifully. Toga gets the benefit of both daycare and overnight. If she could speak, I am certain she would praise the entire staff for the love and care they give around the clock. Having a staff member present 24/7 gives me peace of mind knowing that there is always a watchful eye during the night time hours as well. BFFE is well staffed. Each staff member takes their job very seriously and exudes love, gentleness, and a sense of professionalism with every dog.

Many Thanks and Great Kudos... Accolades to the Entire Staff. I am soooooo grateful to have found Best Friends Fur Ever!!!!!! I could not have asked for a more attentive team to keep an eye on my 100lb fur-baby in my absence. We were greeted in the parking lot by a handler who called her by name. And then when we walked through the door, the person at the desk called out her name in a way that said "welcome back!" My flight home was delayed due to weather (need I say more). Trying to rebook was stressful to say the least, but, all my efforts could go to getting home because I KNEW my fur-baby was enjoying her playtime. Many thanks to Amy, the groomer, who so wonderfully corrected the mess I had "created" and set me on the path of success. THANK YOU BFFE!!

Finding and using BFFE has been a tremendous help in training Rosebud. If Rosebud had her way she would got to BFFE 5 days a week. The staff is efficient, friendly and very helpful. The training has made Rosebud a much more manageable puppy... she was always a social butterfly!!

My Penny has been coming to BFFE for about 3 years now a few days a week. I cannot express how happy I am with the level of care and love that all BFFE employees treat her with. I trust that they take care of her while she's there. They give me updates on her when I pick her up and every year they give her a birthday party. I love it there and so does Penny.

The Day-N-Train program and staff have been of great benefit to our new pup, as well as our family. The trainers have helped Lacey acclimate to being with a large group of playmates and to learn basic commands. BFFE provides both physical and mental exercise. The training packages are fairly priced and well worth the investment. She always comes home with a detailed report card with pictures so we know how she is progressing.

I have been taking my (2) Newfoundlands, Sailor and Skipper to Bonnie for the past 2 years and I have been nothing but pleased with her grooming.

As you know Newfoundland's are of the huge breed and have quite a bit of hair. Bonnie always takes her time with them, and if she sees something that needs or should be done, she always asks before doing. I saw her grooming Sailor on Facebook and there she was right on the floor with Sailor, cutting and drying.

Bonnie clearly enjoys what she does and takes pride in her work. My girls always look great! Most important, she loves all of her "clients" and takes her job seriously.
