Total comfort for them, complete confidence for you
The Difference of Boarding with Paws Pet Pad
Setting the standard of care for your dog
Private bedroom-style suites
Board your pup alone or with their family members. Full walls and a windowed door give your dog a sense of safety, security, and familiarity. We personalize the suite to your pup!
We have suites ranging in size from 22 sq ft to 56 sq ft.
Indoor and outdoor play parks
We have five indoor/outdoor play parks and one indoor play park for the littlest of the littles in winter.
We divide our play groups by size, play style and temperament and have lots of of supervised play time with rest periods tailored to each guest.
Our Pet Specialists complete a thorough training program covering safety and handling, first aid, advanced dog knowledge, health, characteristics of breeds and teaching basic behaviours, and attend webinars and in-person training seminars with local trainers to learn various positive-reinforcement and force-free training methodologies and philosophies. Learn about the training required for our Pet Specialists.
We manage our play groups positively and manage and direct behaviour. We don't spray with water bottles, pin dogs, yell at them, or otherwise use aversive techniques.
Everything we do is trust-based and relationship-building with the goal to build your dog's confidence and ensure their safety and happiness.
24/7 live security and monitoring
Live monitoring, temperature sensors and alarms, motion and sound detection and direct connection to fire and police provide the best security and ensure the safety of your dog.

Two styles of boarding
For social guests and those needing private stays
Dogs that stay with us for Stay 'n Play boarding participate in our dog daycare in monitored play groups and rest in private suites.
Each stay is personalized for each guest so it’s like they're on a little vacation of their own.
Enjoy your time away knowing your furry family member is happy, safe, and having a fantastic time
Private Play and Enrichment
We understand not all guests are comfortable in groups or enjoy play with others. For any reason, we can offer our private play and enrichment boarding option.
Guests stay in fully-private suites and have lots of indoor/outdoor play time throughout the day and evening in one of our large private play areas.
Our private play and enrichment boarding option is also "all inclusive" in you don't have to pay extra for privacy, for extra bathroom breaks or play time, or extra love and attention from our specialists. That's all included!
Edmonton & Leduc Dog Boarding
Times have changed; so should the way your dog boards.
Paws Pet Pad raises the comfort and fun factor for dogs and your expectations for dog boarding kennels in the Leduc and Edmonton region.
We designed our private suites, our play areas and our schedules with our own dogs in mind. It was important for us to create a place we could feel confident leaving our own dogs. And because of that, we offer so much more than just the traditional experience of a dog boarding kennel.
So what can you expect for your dog when you board with us?
Whether your dog is in our stay and play program or our private enrichment program, you can expect:
A personalized stay customized to your dog
indoor and outdoor play areas with no limitations on bathroom breaks or exercise
private suites with full walls and a windowed door for your dog to rest alone or stay with a family member or two
private meal service with their regular meals
lots of fully supervised play time! Indoor and outdoor alone, with a sibling, or with their friends.
We offer more to Edmonton and Leduc and to those starting out their search for a boarding kennel.

Trainers supervising your dog during play times
Enjoy your time away knowing your furry family member is happy, safe, and having a fantastic time.
