Our History & General Information

Best Boarding Kennel: In 1988 Jennifer Whitby Best opened Best Boarding Kennel a small 7 run facility. Her love of all animals pushed her to give this endeavor a shot. Jennifer’s passion to deliver high quality care to both dogs and cats in their parents absence has helped to build an amazing customer base. As the Dover area grew so too did Best Boarding kennel. Best Boarding Kennel now has 50 plus indoor outdoor runs, inside crate stays available, and 6 cat specific condos.  All of this and Jennifer’s commitment to high end animal care lead Best Boarding Kennel to receive the best of Dover award in 2023. This accomplishment Best Boarding Kennel is extremely proud of.  After almost 35 years to still be recognized for the same quality care Jennie set out to deliver back in 1988. January 1st 2024 Jennifer turned the keys over to the second generation of Best’s. Daughter in law Ashley Best had groomed at the kennels for over 20 years and also worked the boarding side of the business. Son Andy has grown up in the family business.  Ashley and Andy’s desire is to continue the family tradition of bringing the Dover area the best pet care around.

We have 50 indoor / outdoor run kennel which offers heat or air conditioning according to the time of year. Each run has privacy panels on both sides in order to help your dog feel non-threaten. Chain link is from the ground to the ceiling. A roof extends over the outside of the kennel to aviod your pet from being exposed to the weather (ie. snow, rain etc). The kennel is double fenced secure, has an alarm system and is located at our home.

Full time grooming services are available for boarding and non-boarding customers. Schedule a bath and nails on the day of your return from your pets boarding and end its stay with a relaxing “spa treatment” before heading home to be with the family. It’s a wonderful treat to pick up your pet all sweet and clean.

We encourage you to make us your all inclusive facility capable of meeting your boarding and grooming needs. With our small and faithful staff your pet will develop a relationship; having all its needs met in one location with the same people handling them year after year!
