About Us

Man's Best Friend was founded on the simple premise of creating an environment to help families and dogs lead fun and fulfilling lives cohesively together. With training over 75,000 dogs and helping save thousands of dogs from being returned to the pound, they have done just that!

Man's Best Friend is one of the largest Dog Training Companies in the United States with three locations in the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex, three locations in Houston and two locations in Atlanta Georgia.

Man's Best Friend was founded in July 1980 in Houston, Texas by the Bolander family. Their vision was to offer dog and owners a unique dog training center, providing personal assistance to each customer. Obedience, behavioral problem solving, and personal family protections services were now available in a private environment with programs designed to fit each customers specific goals and each dogs personality. Becoming the leader in the dog training industry was not accomplished over night however with hard work and perseverance the Bolander's have accomplished their dream! In 1988 Man's Best Friend expanded to the Dallas / Ft. Worth metroplex with the opening of its first store in Grand Prairie, Texas. They now have 8 locations and employ over 100 people collectively.

Man's Best Friend will continue to provide quality care, excellence in training and a safe and friendly environment to its clients and their pets!
