"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. Check Rates.

780 grants competitive pricing for 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 affordable 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?".

That's why the 2nd step is checking rates.

3. Book a Consult.

780's the first dog kennels offering $25 consults, Sunday to Friday, with our 100% money-back guarantee; so you can try a new facility; 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 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 owner's and staff to meet and chat while viewing amenities, 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 dog hotels for the first time or trying a new pet resort.

That’s why the 3rd step is booking a consult.

100% Money Back Guarantee.

4. Visit Kennels.

780's an industry forerunner, refreshing dog hotel standards with our brand-new unique octagon design that reduces stress with 2 smaller facilities; not a giant warehouse.

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

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

After viewing amenities, leave your pup for a ½ day, or less, with certified trainers to perform an evaluation. Return for pick-up discussing your pooch's time with staff, facilities & critter clients.

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 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 pup in the future.

That's why the 4th step is visiting the kennels.

5. Specialize Pet Care.

780's leading overnight dog care services enhanced with enrichment options specialized 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 pets; but don’t help. Given a choice, Rover will take meaningful interaction over luxury.

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..."

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.

That’s why the 5th step is specializing pet care.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Q: Are consults mandatory?
A: No, just a recommendation to provide peace of mind & reduce stress.

Q: How long do the consults take?

Then we can provide meaningful information on pick-up to aid the decisions making process.

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

A: Yes, ages 3 months+ if they are potty trained. For younger pups, best to hire an in-home pet sitter.

A: Yes, the choice to neuter, spay, or alter to breed standards is the owners.

Just let us know so extra pre-cautions can be taken.

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.

A: No, membership offers savings & freebies if wanted.

Q: Can I stack multiple freebies in 1 stay?
A: No, the idea is to have owners, pets, & service providers meet more frequently, not just get free stuff.

A: Yes, Wi-Fi monitors air conditioning during summer & heat in winter.

Q: Does 780 have in-floor heating?

A: No, mixing 30+ strange dogs leads to fights, every k9 has their own indoor & outdoor areas.
