We are based in the West side of Glasgow and offer dog services which include boarding, day care, walking, practical private and group class training sessions, dog psychology and behaviour modification. We are a member of The National Association of Registered Pet Sitters (NARPS) and The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and adhere to their codes of conduct which includes the use of up to date, modern, positive and science based training, we do not use or condone the use of aversives in dog training. Please be aware that there are still trainers out there who yank on collars, use sprays and throw things at dogs and force dogs into position or worse, submission. If you come across this please ask them to leave your dog alone, and get in touch with us. We are also Disclosure checked, Insured and Pet First Aiders. We have three dogs of our own so whether boarding, day care or walking, your dog will have plenty of exercise, company and cuddles. Dogs are our passion!
Diane is brilliant! As a trainer she is gone over and above for us. After just 2 sessions we have been visually able to see the progress our Harvey is making! Diane’s Harvey is a star too though! 😊 We already have our 3rd session booked and will continue to use Diane for the foreseeable future. More...
Diane is amazing. A month and a half ago our big rescue Bruce was struggling with meeting other dogs following being bitten on the tail, as well as past traumas that we don’t know the details of. He is a three legged, very loving dog but our walker was unable to control him and told us that she would not walk him anymore. I was devastated and felt like I was letting him down. In just a month and a half of walking and training with Diane he has learned to walk off the lead and is almost back to his normal self again with other dogs. I truly thought this would never happen for him and would never have believed that in just a short time I would feel confident to let him off the lead by myself. He is a happy boy again and all thanks to Diane teaching us to listen to Bruce’s needs as well as expecting him to follow our instructions. He is still learning but she has helped him to begin to realise his potential and for that I will always be grateful. More...
Just took my pups over for an overnight stay after their first initial visit. They literally stormed in from excitement! A very good sign indeed. Diane is lovely and very accommodating- i feel comfortable dropping my children off with her and would not consider them staying with anyone else! More...
Lily has a weekly walk with Diane.she sits and waits at the window and starts crying when she sees Diane. Diane has brought lily on so much for us. Lily adores Diane!
Highly recommend Diane! Our pup Hudson absolutely loves going to classes and has been taught key commands for day to day life. The classes are informative and also fun and Diane is great for advice! Hudson loves Diane and it’s clear she loves him too! More...
Fantastic and thoroughly knowledgable service provided. Would highly recommend.
From behaviour training to dog sitting, I would recommend a dogs best friend to anyone and everyone. Great service and lovely environment for dogs to learn and grow!
A great service for all breeds of all ages. Diane is trustworthy, patient, caring and extremely kind. Definitely the best person for looking after your dog :) !
Honestly home from home and more for our dog Jackson and soon to be for the new pup Angus...
Highly highly recommend...and Diane is a wonderful lady whom I like to call the dog whisperer..
Excellent care for Dogs. We live close by and it is always a treat for Piper when she stays at A Dog's Best Friend ..we use Diane for short trips away, holidays and the odd day here and there.Would highly recommend.
Basil loves staying with Diane and her family and he is really made to feel at home. Basil has stayed with Diane every time we have gone away on holiday or for weekend breaks since he was a pup. It's such a relief that we don't have to worry about him as he is so well cared for. He loves Diane's dogs and has a great fun playing with Cooper. When Basil and I are out for a walk and we bump into Diane the welcome and love he has for Diane is really touching - she really is Bearsen's own Dog Whisperer. More...
Diane is like an Aunty to our dog and has been since she was a pup. Tia loves spending time with Diane and the other dogs she cares for and always comes home looking like she’s had loads of fun.
Home from home for our boys Angus and Jackson. Friendly, fun and caring.
Diane is the doggy whisperer! Rosco is so well cared for and relaxed in her company. Highly recommend
