Location and Facility

Room to Run is a 26 run boarding facility set on 8 acres of land just southwest of High River, Alberta. Our facility features two separate buildings and a variety of run sizes to accommodate all sizes and groups of dogs. Our large dog building has several Single runs, measuring 8' x 4' that comfortably house a large sized dog. Double runs comfortable fit 2 large sized dogs and are 12' x 4' while the Family Suites accommodate three or more large sized dogs and measure 14' x 14'. We don't believe in separating family members, so having the Double and Family runs allows a "family" of dogs to stay with each other. Our small dog building has 10 runs all 6' x 4' wide. All runs feature a sliding dog door that leads to their own graveled and fenced area outside.

During the day the individual sliding dog doors are left open to allow the easy access to the outdoors. As well as their own personal outdoor space, we have multiple large fenced yards for dogs to play in with a minimum of 4 rotations a day. When it's cold outside we just turn up the heat! We want the dogs to have as much fresh air and exercise as possible during their stay.

In addition to the yards attached to our main building we have 3 additional "Fort Knox" yards! The "L" yard is a huge space that allows a like-minded group of dogs an almost off-leash experience. In the summer the pool is set up in one corner as well as sun shelters to give the dogs using that yard as much comfort and fun while outdoors. The "3 Yard" is another huge space, often used for daycare dogs or whoever needs some extra space and a secure area to romp in. The "Single" yard is set up with a sun shelter for lazing on a hot day and allows a smaller group of dogs to interact on glorious weather days.

All of our yards are well fortified with 8' – 10' high fencing, bright outdoor lighting, and enough room for even the most active dogs to run like the wind! Indoor runs are all very well lit and vibrantly painted to help stimulate our minds as well as our boarding guests! Colorful art hangs on the wall, and music is played around the clock.
