What A Great Training Center Logo

In 2007, Maureen Patin founded What a Good Dog! Training in a horse barn in Prosper, Texas. With the support of her husband, Harold, she left a long career as an executive with PepsiCo to follow her dream. Already a life-long dog enthusiast, she had experience in competitive obedience, and teaching basic obedience classes for a local parks and rec department. Maureen’s vision was to build a dog training facility that would ignite a passion for training in pet owners. 

Best Friends Fun Farm is located in McKinney, Texas, about 45 minutes north of Dallas. We are on two acres with a fenced, lighted grass field and a heated training building with packed dirt flooring.


Established in 2000, Best Friends is one of the oldest agility schools in the DFW area.  We teach a wide variety of breeds and handling styles with enormous successes in the ring.

Dancing Dogs

We offer a range of services that can help. Some dogs (and owners!) do better with the quiet focus of a one-on one private session. Other handlers want to practice good manners around other dogs in our group classes. Our advanced classes work for the advanced pet owner as well as those who are competition bound! Located in Boyd, Texas.
