At Camp Run-A-MuttEast County,
it's all about the dogs...

The award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is a cage free doggie daycare and boarding facility featuring indoor and outdoor fun for your canine companion in a fully supervised, clean and safe environment. Camp Run-A-Mutt™ East County features over 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play area for your dog to romp and exercise to their heart's content! Watch your camper online as they run and play in the spacious grassy area, cool off in the custom waterfall/splashpond, relax on the sun deck or under the cooling misters on a hot day. We also offer grooming, boutique, obedience training and surprises you will find only at Camp Run-A-Mutt™ that you and your dog will love.

It's not just the amenities that makes us unique. Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is also 100% cage-free for both daycare and overnight boarding. During their stay, your dog will receive exeptional care by our well-trained, attentive staff who are certified by the American Red Cross in pet first aid. Our overnight Campers enjoy the extra comfort of a caring human in the same room while they snooze at night. Our goal is to ensure the safety of the dogs in our care while minimizing the stress and anxiety some dogs experience when away from home and their owners.

Mike is a California native and loves all that San Diego has to offer.  He was in the Army for 8 years and traveled the world, then returned to San Diego to raise his family.  Molly moved to California with her family when she was 5, and can’t imagine living anywhere else.  Raising 4 children and working hard for many years, the family was finally ready to add another child of the four-legged variety.  Boodles, their Goldendoodle, became a precious addition in 2009, and is definitely the center of attention as the “youngest” in the house.  As much as they love her, it was terribly hard to leave for work every day knowing that Boodles would miss them until their return.  They found Camp Run A Mutt when Boodles was almost a year old, and she quickly became a regular.  The Camp experience was like a dream come true, and they often talked about opening a location of their own, and made the decision to make it happen!  They searched the East County, where they both grew up, for a location that had everything they would want, and are very excited to share the Camp experience with their customers.
