Whether your pooch is a full-fledged family member or you’re looking to give a puppy a new forever home, man’s best friend deserves nothing but the best Long Island has to offer.

And with the return of the dog days of summer, what better time to give Fido a new do, teach them some new tricks or take them out for more walks?

Dog owners whose pups need a trim or their nails done should try The Pet Salon at West Hills East Veterinary Clinic, which was voted Best Pet Grooming on Long Island in the 2017 Best of Long Island competition. These groomers ensure that every animal is treated with the utmost care. Not only will you feel secure in leaving your adored pet under the watchful eye of the talented and friendly staff, but we’re sure that your pet will find some newfound confidence in his or her makeover, too! 

Canine companions in need of some schooling should find their way to K9 Waggin Tails, which won Best Dog Trainer on Long Island in the 2017 Best of Long Island contest. Owners will rest assured knowing that their beloved canines will learn to behave properly with the help of these skilled trainers. For dog owners who need to give their fur baby more walks but don’t have the time, K9 Waggin Tails also won Best Dog Walker on Long Island in that contest. 

Those looking for a new dog to love (and train and groom and walk) should head to Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center, which earned the title of Best Animal Shelter on Long Island and Best Animal Rescue on Long Island in this year’s Best of LI program for at last the eighth straight year in both categories.
