Why Mutt Heads?

About the Organization

Mutt Heads Pet Services started because of our love of rescue and fostering. We have 3 dogs of our own, and we have fostered animals through local rescues since 2014. We have extensive experience with dogs of different sizes, ages, breeds, energy levels and temperaments. 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. We will really get to know your dog(s) during their stay!

Mutt Heads is dedicated to our crew, particularly our late babies Lady Patricia, Hobbs and Phil. To learn more about our fur family visit the "Ambassador Crew" page.

About the Owners/Operators
Prior to starting Mutt Heads, Cassie obtained her Bachelor of Management degree and worked as a Human Resources professional for almost a decade. Operating Mutt Heads has allowed her to put her business education and her passion for advocating for animals together. Cassie is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). She has completed the Karen Pryor Academy's Dog Trainer Comprehensive program which along with working hands-on with fosters and clients, has given her a professional understanding of dog training and behaviour that she is able to incorporate into everyday operations. This has allowed her to really understand our boarding clients and make sure that they are set-up for success when staying in our facility.

When not working at Mutt Heads, Steven also works as a Firefighter/Primary Care Paramedic (EMT). Steven has completed the Karen Pryor Academy's Dog Trainer Fundamentals program, which along with working hands-on with fosters and boarding clients, has given him understanding of dog training science and behaviour to incorporate into the daily routines.

Our organization is insured through ProFur and we both have our current Pet First Aid certificates.
