Camp Run-A-Mutt offers the most unique cage free daycare anywhere. We feature a park like setting on premium synthetic lawn made especially for dogs, splash pond complete with waterfall and sun deck, ramps, bridges, dog houses, Kuranda dog beds, plenty of clean cool drinking water, lots of shade and even misters and a kiddie pool for the hot summer days.

Mornings at Camp consist of bringing out all the toys (from Kong balls to big Boomer balls), turning on the bubble machine and letting our campers chase, play fetch, run, jump at bubbles, sniff, be sniffed and just be a dog all while getting the socialization and excercise every dog needs. In the early afternoon we retire the toys and bubbles and let our campers bask in the sun, settle for a nap, take a dip in the pond or chase around their new friends.

Good behavior and fun are always encouraged by our highly qualified team of "Alpha humans". We are proud of the fact that the campers who qualify to be Camp Run-A-Mutters are never caged, never left unattended and can be watched on our Muttcams from any computer, iPhone, iPad or Web-enabled cell phone.

Benefits of daycare

Let's face it, for many of us, our dogs are our "kids", and just like the human ones, our canine kids need the same love, attention, education, and guidance. Doggie daycare can provide these essentials. Just being around other dogs will help your little one learn the social skills they will need to be a happy healthy dog. Dogs are "pack" animals at their core, and a feeling of belonging and acceptance comes from being around other members of the pack. The great part about Camp Run-A-Mutt is that your dog gets to socialize with other dogs that have been temperament tested in a physically safe environment while they are being constantly supervised. Strong social skills will enable your dog to lead a happier, healthier, and more confident life. Ideally, building these skills should begin when your kid is a puppy, but these social skills can be learned at any age. Running, jumping, fetching, and chasing are all part of CRAM, but while our kids are doing these activities they are also getting the exercise that their bodies and minds need.

Our staff and Campers

Our staff knows the concept of being the "Alpha Dog" in the pack. They have years of experience in dog handling and understand how important it is for a dog to listen and respond for the safety and fun for all. Camper wannabes are required to know basic obedience, show no aggression toward dogs or humans, refrain from jumping onto humans, play well with smaller dogs and not bark excessively. These are the characteristics we look for when testing and emphasized by our staff after the dog becomes an official "camper".

Sleepovers

Campers who qualify to be overnight guests are in for a wonderful experience. Not only do they get to play with their buddies all day, when the sun goes down, we bring them into our large rubber floor play room where they are individually fed in their own private area. After supper they settle in for a night of relaxation, television and community snoozing with the pack. For many dogs, boarding can be a stressful experience. To minimize this stress, our goal is to have your dog's stay as close as possible to what they experience at home. Like our daycare, boarding is totally cage free and dogs are never left unattended. In fact, our "alpha human" actually sleeps with them in the same room. It’s kind of like a slum-grrr party.

Requirements

While we think cage free is the best way to go, it's not for all dogs. Dogs who have not attended Camp Run-A-Mutt for daycare are required to stay at least a full day (minimum six hours) for evaluation to determine if they will get along in a cage free environment prior to an overnight stay. Feeding is included in the cost for boarding but we require you to supply your dog's food along with feeding and care instructions. Drop off time is by 12:00 noon and pick up is by close of business the last day of their stay.

Our Groomer Wendy with Lucy

We also offer grooming by a highly skilled, talented groomer. Their love of dogs and attention to detail has made everyone who has put their trust in them become a repeat customer.

Our campers love the idea that they can be dropped off, play, play, play until they're dog-tired, get groomed and beautiful, play some more, then go home. They never sit in a cage waiting for their appointment. They get a stress free, fun experience, and you get a tired, clean and groomed pup at the end of the day!

Dogs who are not "campers" can also be groomed but are kept separate from the rest of the dogs until they are picked up. All "non-campers" need proof of current vaccinations. Grooming is by appointment only.
