I was very pleased with the care my pet got and will use Shannon again. My dog is very special to me and I know Shannon took good care of her. I also appreciated getting videos of my dog.

I have had my miniature schnauzer, Misty, at Dog's Best Friend many times for grooming, doggie day care, and boarding. Shannon treats Misty as if she is her own dog. Her care of Misty is impeccable and I never feel anxious leaving her at Dog's Best Friend, even for an extended stay. I highly recommend Shannon Polacek and Dog's Best Friend for grooming, boarding or doggie day care. She's the real deal!

Shannon was great! Went above and beyond to make Amelia and Alice as comfortable as possible. Exceeded any expectations by far. Excellent communication throughout their stay too, I'll make sure they visit again next time when traveling near Pittsburgh. Highly recommended! Thank you Shannon.

I want to be your Dog's Best Friend

I have been taking care of dogs for over 25 years. My home is in Plum Borough and it is set back about 2 acres off the main road. I have a small in home grooming salon and I take care of some of my customer's doggie friends while they are away. I can accommodate dogs that are friendly with other dogs, as well as dogs that need individual attention. I have taken care of ...

What Shannon would like to know about your dog

I do recommend bringing your dog for a visit before their first stay so that we can get to know each other. This will also help your dog feel more comfortable when they do come for their stay. We can also discuss any details about your pet's stay at this time. However, it is not necessary to visit before scheduling a stay.

When Shannon watches your pet

At Dog's Best Friend your dog will enjoy spending time with other friendly dogs in my large fenced yard (or individual playtime if needed). They will also enjoy lots of people attention!
All doggie guests will have their own crate for resting periods. I recommend bringing some items from home to help your dog feel more comfortable. I will provide a list to you. I will do my best to make your dog happy around the clock!
