Melanie Hillier

Hi, I'm Melanie and I own and run the My Best Friend South Cotswolds Branch. As a child I grew up with Beauty and Ben, my Dobermans, and whenever I walked Ben people would ask who was taking who for a walk; he was my best friend and meant the world to me!

I would never have put my dogs into kennels and really appreciated a caring home environment whenever I had to leave them so know first-hand how important professional safe and reliable dog care can be.

Having always wanted to start my own business, and of course having always loved dogs, My Best Friend was an obvious choice for me. I am looking forward to welcoming you and your best friends sometime soon.

Dog Walking

My Best Friend provides a bespoke, safe, secure and fun dog walking service for those occasions when you are unable to look after your best friend.  Whether they're big or small, young or in their golden years, boisterous or reserved you can rest assured that they will receive the best care and attention.

Your dog will be collected and taken to their walk in a caged doggy van with up to 5 friends and walked for a minimum of 45 minutes so your pooch gets the most out of their time with 'My Best Friend'.

How it works

• Initial consultation so that they can get to know you and your best friend.

• Provide a variety of country walks.

• DBS checked.

Home boarding

My Best Friend provides a safe, secure and fun home-from-home stay at their family home and through a network of carefully selected carers.  Unlike boarding kennels, your dog will live as one of the family when in the care of My Best Friend.

All carers will undergo an indepth interview at their home to make sure they're suitable. Above all else their carers are certified dog lovers!

How it works

• Initial consultation for us to get to know you and your best friend.

• Find a perfect match for your best friend from our network of carers.

• Send you regular "pup" dates during your best friend's stay.

Day Care

Your dog can be collected in the morning, entertained for the day and returned to you happy, relaxed and exercised ready for a quiet evening at home. If it's more convenient, then you can drop off between 8 am and 9 am and collect by 6 pm.

During the initial consultation the team will take time to assess each dog, they have a limited number of spaces and take great care to ensure that they are sociable, relaxed and above all not show any signs of aggression.
