Man's Best Friend was founded in July 1980, in Houston, Texas by the Bolander family. Their vision was to offer dog owners a unique dog-training center, providing personal assistance to each customer. Obedience, behavioral problem solving, and personal and family protection services were now available in a private environment, with programs designed to fit each customers' specific goals. In 1988, Man's Best Friend expanded operations to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex with the opening of a store.. in Grand Prairie, Texas. They now have three locations in the Metroplex, two in Houston, and two in Atlanta, Georgia, employing over 150 people collectively.
Since it's inception, Man's Best Friend has successfully trained over 75,000 dogs and owners. With a commitment to excellence and thousands of satisfied customers, Man's Best Friend is the recognized leader in the dog training/boarding industry.
Family Owned and Operated Since 1980
What an amazing transformation that our 10 month old pup had with the trainer and Mans Best Friend. I was so happy that every command I gave him he understood 100%.. Thank you MBF and the whole staff that made this miracle happen!

Hondo came to Man's Best Friend for a two week stay for his basic obedience training and came back home a changed puppy! He knows and responds to all of his basic commands (sit, stay, down, heel ect.) very well and is more calm and attentive in general. He has always been a great puppy (no major behavioral problems), but his overall demeanor and his response to our instructions/commands is a remarkable change. We couldn't be happier with the results. Joe and the rest of the staff did a great job with him!

With our busy lifestyle we decided we needed help training our boy. He deserved "better" than we were able to deliver. Man's Best Friend has done wonders with "Wolfie". He is now housebroken and knows his basic commands. This training has been terrific; both for Wolfie and for us! Thank you Man's Best Friend!

We used Man's Best Friend for help with training our dog Strider. He was already a good dog but needed help with a few areas. Actually, we learned that we needed help in how we communicated with him. Justin our trainer and the entire staff of the Norcross facility really helped us understand how to instruct Strider. His behaivior has iomproved dramatically. There are still a few areas we are working on but the support in the ongoing group classes are a great tool for us. Thanks Justin!!
