Since 2009 Best Friends Canine Services, Owned & Operated by Dog Behaviorist, Trainer & Canine Care Specialist, Melanie Blair, has been providing the area's most reliable, reputable, successful and affordable dog behavior problem help & dog training via private in-home sessions and via board & train programs. We've also provided faithful and punctual dog walking, dog sitting and visiting companion services for dogs and puppies in the comfort of their own homes and neighborhoods.

Our local visiting companion 'guardian angel' services include dog walking, potty relief, feeding, watering, giving timely medications, dog & puppy sitting, checking in on dogs after surgical procedures when owner's can't make it home from work to do so and more.

Our CANINE BEHAVIOR PROBLEM HELP (dog whispering, canine psychotherapy, behavior modification & behavior rehabilitation) is available to dogs across the continental United States. We do NOT use yelling, violence or treat bribes to accomplish results. Our Dog Behavior Specialist has made several out of state trips to help dogs (and their humans) in need of major aggression intervention and rehabilitation of issues such as chronic nipping, biting, threatening behaviors, fight and flight compulsions and predatory behaviors towards other household pets and animals. But most of the calls from people seeking behavior problem help and/or obedience & good manners training come from dog owners in Uniontown, Green, North Canton, Hartville, Jackson Township, Atwater, Louisville, Springfield Township, Lake Township, Belden Village, Massillon, Portage Lakes, Barberton, Medina, Bath Township, Fairlawn, Hudson, Aurora, Streetsboro, greater Akron-Canton, Ohio and the many surrounding communities of Northeast Ohio.

For local dogs & puppies, our special 'GUARDIAN ANGEL SERVICES'
provide anything your best friend needs while you're at work or away
from extra potty breaks, feeding, administering therapy or meds, or,
if your dog is ill, age-compromised or needs special post-surgery
care. We specialize in caring for geriatric dogs and for dogs with
disabilities, chronic illness or terminal illnesses. Check out "LiLi",
pictured at right. LiLi was just shy of 14 years old in this photo. She
had Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) which behaves very much like
human MS. She also had canine geriatric conditions. She lost
both forms of continence (from the DM) which is why she was
sporting a diaper in the photo. Nevertheless, she was cheerful,
comical & affectionate as she and happily visited a local nursing home
to brighten up the resident's days. Her mind was sharp and her front
legs were strong. They looked forward to her inspirational visits! :)
