Hill Top Kennels

Loving Care for Your Pets


We’re a private family owned and run business, and we are not associated with any other businesses or facilities. 

Hill Top Kennels, located in Crooked Creek near Grande Prairie, Alberta, was designed to offer the ultimate in comfort for dogs and cats during their short or long-term stays. We know your dog or cat isn't just a pet, but a member of your family, which is why we give them the care and attention they need to feel relaxed and at home while you're away.

Owner and operator Melodie is known to many as an animal lover whose professional boarding experience and gentle, caring nature make her the perfect host for your pets. One visit to Hill Top and you will see that our facility is unlike other kennels in Grande Prairie, Valleyview and the surrounding areas. For us, boarding pets isn't just a hobby or even a side-business. Our focus is providing quality care for the dogs and cats that stay with us.

  • "Hill Top Kennels is my favourite doggie boarding place. Puggles gets excellent care there, he's very excited to go every time! I love to know that he has a little boy to play with there too! "

    Lil Theissen, Crooked Creek AB
  • "We hadn't kenneled our pups since we decided to be pet owners(literally). As we're very particular about our dogs (as I'm sure most are). We have one pup who can be very anxious in new situations, with new people, noises, etc. All of these things taken into consideration, and knowing my pup, we had to be cautious of where we boarded them. We weren't successful in finding an appropriate place to look after our girls so we ended up bringing them along with us everywhere we went. Which at times was very inconvenient. We eventually added to our group a senior, who also suffers from separation anxiety. We completely lucked out when we found Melodie! Hill Top Kennels is an amazing kennel! We feel 100% confident our pups are in the most compassionate care available in the area. One pup with anxiety issues and another old guy with separation issues, and they're always in great spirits when we pick them up. Hill Top Kennels is immaculately clean and Melodie is amazing. I absolutely recommend using Hill Top Kennels to anyone who has pets. You can be assured your pets are WELL taken care of!"

    Danielle Sapach, Grande Prairie AB
  • "Melodie is a trustworthy caring person who took very good care of my dog and cat several times. I was missing my babies and was pleasantly surprised when she sent me videos/texts. The facility was very clean and the care was of highest standard. I take great pleasure in recommending Hill Top Kennels."

    Angela Schelhorn, Grande Prairie AB
  • "I love these kennels. Melodie and her husband are always very accommodating and friendly. Their new kennels are top notch and clean. Easy to get to whenever we go anywhere. I'd gladly recommend these kennels for your dogs or cats anytime!"

    Sheri Klene, Bezanson AB
  • “I had been looking for a kennel around Valleyview for my cat, and Melodie's number was passed on to me. I brought Todd there for a couple of months as I was in the process of moving. He was so well taken care of and loved! He never came back to home having to adjust, he was his normal happy self after the stay at the kennel. Even the cat kennels have an outside portion! I won't choose another kennel, definitely worth it!"
