Dog Boarding and DayCare
If you need to board your canine for the day, overnight, or longer, we can accommodate you. Our 2400 square foot training center is located on 1 acre nestled in a wooded area in central Orlando. There are 3 large fenced doggie play areas which provide plenty of space to run and play. Indoors is of course air conditioned for your pets comfort. Most Vet office daycares, doggie resorts or boarding facilities are set up where your dog is one of dozens lined up in cages or concrete stalls and let out once or twice a day for an hour playtime. Many places charge extra for every little activity, like a walk, or playtime, or social time. Not the case here at Dog’s Best Friend where all these activities are included. If training is desired, additional fees apply. Please take a minute to read our rate chart below for details.
