All we have to say is Shirley and he is ready to go. We have been
boarding Rudy for three years and he loves it. We love that the Inn is
so clean and organized, Shirley has an easy way with animals that
makes everyone feel comfortable. Rudy is happy when we pick him up,
it's like he has been at his home away from home. Thank you
Shirley for all the work you do to make Rudy's, and all the other animals
stay so pleasant and safe. -Jim & Sue 08/12/11
Each time we go out of town we feel safe and happy to drop off our 2
dogs and cat off at Your Best Friends Inn. Shirley is nothing but nice to
us and our pets seem to have a great time. When we pick them up the
dogs are ready to take a nap which tells us they had a good amount of
play time outdoors. We looked at the other boarding facility in the area
before looking here and there is no way (for a variety of reasons) we
would leave them there. The kennels areas for the dogs and cats have
always been clean and secure when we drop off or pick up our pets. I
always take a look at the other dogs/cats/bunnies when I drop off and
pick up my pets. As I look Shirley is always willing to share something
about these other animals and how or if them played with my pets.
When I have friends going out of town I always recommend them to this
great place. We will happily continue to leave our pets with Shirley
when we go out of town. Thanks for being great! -Jesus 08/06/11
I have been taking my German Shepard to Your Best Friends Inn for
over 2 years now at least 2-5 days a week. I drive from Fresno to
Visalia for work and pass my office to go to take MY BEST
FRIEND to Your Best Friends Inn . I can not tell you how wonderful
they treat Jake . I have looked into other Inns but NOTHING
compares to the cares we receive from the staff at this Inn. I have
and will continue to recommend Your Best Friends Inn to all my
friends. Many have stayed there and continue to book into this Inn.
Just a quick note if you plan on trying this Inn just she books up
quickly during the summer and holidays so plan ahead. Yes she's
that good. You will not be disappointed . I will not leave Jake with
anyone else he loves his Shirley and her staff. Thank you for all you
do . - Love Sindee , Dave and mostly Jake.xxoo 07/21/11
My Border Collie & Mini Doxi think that THEY are the ones
getting the vacation when I take them to YBF Inn! The owner,Shirley
Maxon, has a special touch with dogs. She can handle
dogs that are too timid and/or aggressive (that the other
kennels can't or won't). The pets all get one-on-one
care/playtime and attention to each one's personality. I don't
have to worry that they might not be taken care of as well I do
at home. At YBFI, my dogs get good quality metal dishes and
comfy dog beds and blankets during their stay. My dogs are
happy to be there and that makes ME happy too! -Trina 01/14/10
I boarded my pug, Lola, and my previous dog at a few
kennels in the area and wasn't too happy with them. Your
Best Friends Inn was the first place where I felt completely
comfortable with leaving my pet.
Knowing that there is one main person who is always there
(Shirley), and being able to talk to her before and after a trip
gives me peace of mind that they are being taken care of
and that Shirley is getting to know the dogs' personalities.
Our pug is VERY timid around new people and other dogs,
and Shirley was very gentle and understanding with her.
When we pick her up she is usually very scared and timid,
but after one stay here she came out more confident and
actually seemed happy. Shirley even had a separate kennel
in her office that she used when the big dogs were scaring
Lola a bit too much. The kennels seemed very clean, much
more than any other kennels I visited, and there are a
limited amount of them so you know your dog is being dealt
with on a more personal level. They are heated/cooled
which was very important to me having a Pug in these
summer temperatures. The prices were actually better than
most other kennels I've tried, and the quality is outstanding.
I will definitely use this place in the future for both my dog
and my cat! - Melba 07/16/09
The Best Friend's Inn is a great place to take my special needs dog.
I have been taking Lily there for over a year. She gets the special
attention that she needs and plenty of exercise which is important
for any dog. Shirley is very attentive and is sure to let Lily the dog
play with the right dogs. (Not the ones that are too big or
aggressive) It's also important for Lily not to become over excited
since she is epileptic and it can be a trigger for her and Shirley
pays good attention to that (and the vacuum which is another
trigger!) Special attention is what I'm getting at here. It is a smaller
facility and that really helps. My work requires me to leave
sometimes on a short notice and Shirley always works it out. I
appreciate that so much! It's always very clean with no smells or
messes. The rates are quite reasonable and worth every penny.
Thanks Shirley! - MLF 02/04/09
My two little Yorkies LOVE to go to Shirley's place! Quinn gets so
excited he can hardly contain himself till we get there.
I love the play yard, the indoor kennels and the loving care they
get. Everything is always very clean and secure. Shirley is excellent
with pets, very knowledgeable and alert to their actions.
I highly recommend 'Your Best Friend's Inn'.
Thanks again for all your loving care Shirley.
Your Best Friends Inn is the next best thing to home. Shirley has
years of experience working in a vet office and it shows. Our dog
needed medication while she was there and Shirley was on top of
it. She was great about it. The kennels are spotless and the
commercial washer and dryer are always going - very clean! The
kennels have air and heat and the dogs have plenty of room
outside for play. We'll always take our pooch to Shirley! - Sara
