Why Mutt Heads?
About the Organization
Mutt Heads Pet Services started because of our love of rescue and fostering. We have dogs of our own, and we have fostered over 165 animals through local rescues since 2014. We have extensive experience with dogs of different sizes, ages, breeds, energy levels and temperaments - but we specialize in rescue dogs. Mutt Heads is located on a fully fenced acreage close to Sherwood Park, Edmonton and Beaumont. We are a small scale family owned and operated boarding facility. When we say small scale, we mean really small scale. Our facility only has 6 dog runs, so you know that your pup isn't just a number. Kennel staff are the owners/operators, so your dog will get cared for by the same individuals each day. This allows us to spend one-on-one time with your dog and make sure that they are getting individualized attention. We will really get to know your dog(s) during their stay!
Mutt Heads is dedicated to our crew. To learn more about our fur family visit the "Ambassador Crew" page.
To provide transparency of your dog's stay, to provide advocacy for the dogs in our care and to provide integrity within the pet professional industry.
