I didn't read the entire thread yet, but if I am upgrading my tickets to APs when I'm at WDW, will that qualify me for the discount if I'm checking my dog in a day or 2 before I do the upgrade??

We are so disappointed to report that the Best Friends Pet Care in Lake Buena Vista, Florida was just awful. The staff does not communicate with each other and therefore, anyone who works at the front desk, does not care what is going on with your dog. We brought our puppy there and were so upset to see that she had not been taken out to potty, even though we were paying extra for her to be taken out more than once.Also, she was in the villas, which we thought would get more attention from the staff, but does not. Many days, she wasn't even taken out once. Although she could have "pottied" in her room, she has just recently been trained and will only potty in the grass. We told several staff members about our concern that our puppy was holding her stools for more than 24 hours. Many staff members were rude and one front desk member bluntly told us that she only worked front desk and didn't know or care about what was going on with the dogs. Although this place looks cute and appears to be a wonderful place for pets to stay, you have no idea what kind of treatment your animal is getting when you leave. Their report cards are written nicely, as well as the "times" that they took the dog out or had cuddle time. However, those reports were often lied about. On more than one occasion, it was written that our puppy was taken out by a staff member, or that a staff member had cuddle time and wrote "she was so cute and playful". However, it was impossible that they had taken her out or had cuddle time at the times in which they wrote, because we were there at that particular time. They just wrote random times and comments to make it look like they were paying attention to her when in fact, they were not. We advise people to do yourself a favor and find another place to board your loved one. This is only worth it if you can visit your pet everyday, like we did to make up for the care that they aren't receiving from the staff.

How do you know your puppy was not taken out even once? Did you ask to speak to the manager about your concerns?

I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with the front desk staff and Best Friends Pet Resort as a whole. Our experience was definitely very different from yours. We found all the staff to be very friendly, the facility to be very comfortable, and the care given to our dog right on-target with what we paid for (also in the villas).

I was wondering about this, as well. How did the poster know what was or was not going on with their dog while they were not there? I get the conflict in the notes but how would you know if your dog never got walked when you weren't there? What treatment did their dog receive that was not acceptable? I was a little perplexed with that part.

Not a troll, saw a post on the Facebook BFPC about this.....I think the poster forgets that a small puppy has to pee pee ALOT, alot more than older dogs. Thats why the puppy always had to go when they showed up. My puppy would just pee pee all over himself when he got excited RIGHT after going potty!
Puppies are a cute thing.

This incident does NOT affect any way I feel about BFPC...they did awesome with my 3 boys and I will TOTALLY be back.

I'm not so sure this is a troll. I only boarded my dog here for daycare but have an upcoming reservation. They told me they took my dog out to pee but that the dog didn't go because he was too "anxious." Well, duh, he's a GSD & they can be nutty when out of their element & away from their humans. I know my dog well, and if they gave him a couple of minutes, he would have peed. (I posted about this a few pages back in this thread).

There was also another customer at the desk & she was ticked because her dog didn't get what it was supposed to.

The staff wouldn't let me take a picture of the room he was in. What's the big secret? It may be their policy but I think it's a bad one. Many of us treat our pets as family members, not just furry little accessories, so I don't know why they won't allow photos of the indoor/outdoor runs.

I really didn't get a great vibe from this place & I may switch to a different kennel next time. It looks great on the outside but I'm still not convinced.

My kennel at home is very spacious & has a Webcam, so I can watch my boy all day. I'd like to take him with us again so we can spend time with him, though.

I know there are some true fans of BFPC on this thread but not everyone has had a great experience.

We just boarded our 2 dogs in one of the Vacation Villas for 3 days. I was really impressed with the cleanliness and quietness of the facility. We went and walked our dogs twice and both times all 14 of the villas were clean and the dogs in them looked very comfortable. We have an 80 pound lab and a 68 pound mixed breed and the Villa size was just fine for the 2 of them. There was a fluffy bed on the raised concrete platform and a cot on the floor. When we picked them up, they were in a play group which was well monitored by the staff. I didn't see the regular kennels so I can't say anything about them but the VIP Suites and Vacation Villas are quite nice. I booked a VIP Suite for out next visit just because money wise it works out better if you want your dogs having an extra walk and playgroup each day plus they have twice the room that the villas have. The VIP Suites have an outdoor area where the dogs go out for air and relief where it appeared the Villas have a concrete area through their doggy door that is inside. I didn't see what was on the other side of the doggy door but from looking at the layout of the building, it couldn't be outside. The doggy door is opened 5 times during the day for the dogs to go out. I was really happy with the boarding! It's always traumatic for me going away and worrying about the dogs!

we are considering boarding 3 beagles...which room would fit all three? One is 34 lbs, one is 22 lbs, and the other is 27 lbs. I would love to keep them all in the same kennel. I just don't know if I could afford the luxury suite...would a "vacation villa" do? I'm assuming regardless of the accomodation, you still pay for all three dogs.

Also, between the two port orleans resorts, which is closest? We were already considering port orleans french quarter.

Also, from what I can tell, we could come any time ourselves to walk them right? If we went over in the morning and dinner time? They also allow one walk per day...do you get to pick the time? Thanks in advance especially with all the questions
