100% money-back guarantee badge.

780 welcomes all dog breeds for overnight pet care with certified staff, professional facilities, & membership benefits, awarded Best Business & People's Choice.

780 knows your pet is unique and your family has many questions regarding what to do before housing your hound such as:
  • Are services credible, licensed, insured, accredited, customized, reliable, & affordable with customer loyalty incentives?
  • Will staff be certified, experienced, friendly, caring, knowledgeable, & on-site 24/7?
  • Are facilities safe, enriching, private or shared, controlled climate, & with natural settings?
  • Is the business a mom-and-pop operation, family-owned, or corporate franchise, & giving-back to the community?
That’s why we suggest discussing your needs in-person and bring your pet for a $25 consult with our 100% money-back guarantee.

Whether you're leaving a puppy for the first time, seeking senior safekeeping, medical special needs, anxious rescues with separation anxiety, high-drive working K9's, reactive with dogs, or social butterflies; we can help.

Here's 7 benefits of booking with 780's amenities while temporarily away from your four-legged family:

"We have now placed our beloved Pitbull-boxer, Copper, in the trust of 780 for the 4th time... we are over-joyed with the outcome.

"Copper tends to lose weight rapidly at other facilities and when we have picked him up he was agitated.

"Since we've switched to 780, we notice Copper's weight is right where it should be, and he is calm and happy when we retrieve him.

"The staff at 780 are knowledgeable, respectful, thoughtful, and courteous. I also appreciate that I can customize his stay to directly reflect his needs with 780's B.E.T.R. Enrichment options.

"I highly recommend 780 as we travel almost every month and they are always our #1 choice."
COPPER, Google Reviews (October 2018)  5/5  

"My wife and I spent a great deal of time looking for the right fit for our 2 small dogs Archie and Reggie.

"We checked out many options on the internet and ended up narrowing it down to 6 for interview.

"It was clear that not all facilities are created equal and it was obvious that 780 was the winner.

"Together with Adam and Angie we worked out a process that would be best for the beasts to ease them into lodging them for several days.

"Many thanks to Adam and the staff for a great job."
ARCHIE & REGGIE, Yellow Pages Ratings (June 2018)  5/5  

"Hello, I have brought my mutt Max here a few times and love how friendly everyone is.

"The facility is clean and set up wonderfully for all shapes and sizes of critters. Max is always happy to go with all the staff and is always well looked after when I leave him...

"I will continue to bring max here and am looking into training. What a great facility, big thanks to all the staff for all their hard work and dedication.

"You make it easy to board Max."
MAX, Better Business Bureau Testimonials (April 2018)  5/5  

"The BEST amenities with the most educated staff to provide for our crazy bulldog. Our Angus is not exactly a calm, sweet pup...

"The staff at 780 understand he's a wild and crazy but kind k9 and they are the best equipped to deal with him."
ANGUS, Facebook Recommendations (October 2018)  5/5

2. Affordable Rates.

780's low cost boarding for dogs remains affordable with weekend stays & long term rates, discounts for multiple mutts from the same home, & free Saturdays when you like us on Facebook.

780 keeps fixed costs over Xmas, summertime, & other peak-seasons; whether small or XL dogs visit; and does not promote new-client-only discounts.

Advice from Wiki How Pets encourages, "Keep your budget in mind and be sure to ask about the cost per night..."

The goal is not finding the cheapest 4-legged lodging but locating trustworthy & consistent canine expertise with economical daily, weekly, & monthly rooming costs nearby.

When planning your vacation, working long hours, or attending a family event away from your animals, a top question to ask before overnight mutt minding is, "How much are pet hotel fees per day/ week/ month?".

Why risk shocking your budget with hidden fees or being financially penalized for the size of your furball?

Instead, 780's low price dog care has transparent rates online for your peace of mind.

When researching how much it costs to kennel a dog for a night, the 2nd step is checking rates.

3. Board Consults.

780's board consults are $25 and booking Sunday to Friday with our 100% money-back guarantee so you can try a new pet lodge, risk-free.

Consultations allow owners & staff to meet in person, view amenities, introduce pooches to a new environment, and consider how to reduce stress before short term sheltering or long term lodging begins.

Bad advice from the industry promotes tours, but Vet Street says, " should take your pup for a visit before his stay."

Tours only allow for owners and staff to meet and chat while viewing rover residences, but one vital thing is missing - man's best friend!

780 knows that it's natural for owners to worry being away, especially when exploring mutt motels for the first time or trying a new pet resort.

Why unnecessarily risk increasing your companion's stress levels by skipping the introductory phase to kennelling?

Instead, 780's pet hotel consultations are scheduled Sun-Fri online for your peace of mind.

When planning how to board your dog for the first time, the 3rd step is booking a consult.

100% Money Back Guarantee.

4. Modern Kennels.

780's humane dog kennels are refreshing traditional standards with our state-of-the-art design that reduces stress with multiple octagon facilities; not a giant warehouse.

780’s channelized exercise runs & drive-in gated zones help animals & owners try accommodation that exceeds all advanced social & safety needs.

Safeguarding includes constant supervision by staff living on-site, security cameras, motion detection lights, sanitizing schedule, and by-appointment-only to enter our gated property.

Options include personal or deluxe luxury suites, for sharing if bonded from the same home, spacious indoor & outdoor exercise areas, and 4 private off-leash dog parks for playing & socialization.

As stated by the Canadian Veterinarian Medical Association, "Optimal dog housing allows animals to exercise, socialize, and exhibit as many normal behaviours as possible."

Household luxuries such as big sliding windows for bright sunlight and natural airflow, private entrances & exits, with Wi-Fi controlled climates for comfortable air-conditioning in summer and cozy heating in winter, are standard.

After viewing our new animal abode, we suggest leaving your pup for a ½ day, or less, with certified trainers to perform an evaluation.

Return for pick-up discussing your whipper-snapper's time with staff, exercise pens, & other canine guests.

Together, plan how to reach your lodging goals; perhaps another day visit, or 1 overnight stay, and enrichment options to help the lengthy stay.

Each mini-visit, fine tune as necessary, prepping pooch for the best long term stay possible.

780 suggests the initial visit within 2 weeks of the intended lengthy stay with hounds staying home at least 1 night between visits to 780.

Every visit builds peace-of-mind for safekeeping your pick-of-the-litter in the future.

Why risk leaving your fuzzball at a scary dog hostel based on misleading stock photos on a website?

Instead, 780's revolutionary octagon design can be seen online for your peace of mind.

5. Specialized Pet Care.

780's leading overnight dog care services enhanced with enrichment options customized to each unique animal, helping house your hounds, with videos posted to social media.

Leather couches & TVs are expensive items the industry uses to over-charge guilt-ridden owners; for leaving their Lycans; but don’t help. Given a choice, Rover will take meaningful interaction over luxurious lounging.

Instead, Care recommends, "If you own a breed of dog, such as a German Shepherd or Greyhound, that requires walking, make sure that the kennel offers this service..."

780's professional staff are insured and hold obedience training, pet first-aid, & veterinary technician certification, to grant a higher level of pet minding with physical and mental stimulation.

Also, accreditation to Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council, Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau, International Association of Canine Professionals, & Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

When leaving a pup in accommodation for 1-2 weeks, enrichment options may be considered a bonus for Fido by some parents.

Whether hiring for 1-2 months or just weekend stays, owners want help making overnight-looking-after less stressful for their animals.

Why risk Buddy's boredom with fake promises of "3 walks per day" from businesses that are under-staffed and inexperienced?

Instead, 780's pet care enrichment options are bonuses for your peace of mind.

When planning how to make boarding your dog easier, the 5th step is specializing pet care.

Q: What days do you book consults?
A: Sunday to Friday, just closed Saturdays.

A: Fees cover daily fridge, freezer, sanitization, & handling responsibilities.

Q: Do I have to pay for my dogs to get attention & exercise?
A: No, enrichment options are bonus attention for our guests.
