If you mount a speedlte with an infra-red AF assist beam onto the D780 then that should solve the problem.

The only problem is that the AF-assist beam might cause the dog to react when it shines in their face.

That’s not the only problem.  The OP said she was shooting portraits and dog sports.  Use of a flash could be unacceptable in photographing sports.
