At Camp Run-A-Mutt,
it's all about the dogs...
The award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is the premier cage free dog daycare and boarding paradise! Our indoor/outdoor camp is beautiful (see for yourself on our Muttcams), fun, safe and supervised 24/7. Camp Run-A-Mutt™ Energy Corridor features over 8000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play area for your dog to romp, play and socialize to their heart's content! Watch your camper online as they run on 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 dog washing, grooming, boutique, obedience training and surprises you’ll find only at Camp Run-A-Mutt™. Your pup will love it, and so will you.
It's not just the amenities that make us unique. Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is also 100% cage-free for both daycare and overnight boarding. Your pup will receive exceptional care by our well-trained, attentive staff who are certified in pet CPR and first aid. Overnight Campers enjoy the security of a caring human in the same room while they snooze. Our goal is to make boarding fun by minimizing the stress and anxiety some dogs experience when they are away from home. “Pack boarding” instead of cages, human love instead of being alone, it’s a no brainer.

Our daycare lets dogs do what dogs do best: run with the pack, play with friends (both human and dog), chase balls, splash in our splash pond/waterfall, lounge in the sun or simply hide safely away on top of one of our many structures and watch the hi-jinx. See for yourself on our Muttcams.
Like our daycare, boarding is also cage free. This means, “pack boarding" indoors with the pack and mothered by our qualified alpha human. Our staff stays with your pup all night to make sure they are safe, comfortable, relaxed and all their needs are met. A good nights sleep tonight means a sharp mind and lots of energy tomorrow.
Our groomers are skilled, patient and most importantly, love dogs. Dogs who get groomed at our camp get to play right up until their appointment. Most dogs actually enjoy the break and our groomer knows that tired dogs are more relaxed and easier to groom. It’s really a win/win for everyone.
Even the best dogs can develop undesirable behaviors. All Camp Run-A-Mutt trainers practice positive re-enforcement methods which is the most humane and effective training there is. Most camps offer a variety of obedience options, like on-site classes, "board and train”, and one-on-one training.
What our customers say
Camp Run -A-Mutt is an amazing place for pets and owners. My pup Mello has the best time here and made tons of new friends (I could see on the dog cameras). It is also great for owners because you can drop off any time, pick up any time and you don't have an appointment. The staff was great and super helpful. I loved the report card after his first visit that described Mello perfectly. I will definitely be taking him back!Amy E.Houston, TX
My senior Chesapeake absolutely loves this place. He has had fear/anxiety for his entire life - but this environment has brought out the very best in him. He doesn't even like to ride in the car, but all I have to say is "let's go to camp!" and he jumps right in! Thank you Jon, Phu, and the entire CRAM staff for making Brady feel at home and providing top notch care for our boy.Tami AHouston, TX
This is the best doggy daycare/camp around, from the owners to the staff. They are courteous, helping and always willing to go the extra mile. My dog is like our child, my girlfriend and I have pulled our dog from many daycares in the area for many different reasons such as her acting weird when coming home, not wanting to go into the daycare, and even no cameras. John and Phu are always willing to to help in any way possible to reassure you, that your fur-child is being taken care of properly. Helen, Vivian, and the rest of the staff are truly dog lovers who always seem to be enjoying their job of babysitting. If it wasn't for work moving us we would still be going here today.Chase R.Katy, TX
Meet the owners
After 15 years in technology as a Systems Analyst and Project Manager, Susan made the decision to change careers. Choosing a new career was easy because all of her life, family and friends suggested that she work with dogs. She spent most of her adult life inquisitive about best dog practices and she's happiest spending time with dogs - whether her own, family's, a friend's or strangers'.
A move to Houston led Susan to Camp Run-A-Mutt Houston Galleria for daycare for her Pharaoh Hound, Cody. She enjoyed watching the dogs on the Muttcams, and found herself wishing she was there. So she approached the owners, Jon and Phu, and they decided to open the second Houston location together. While searching for the perfect site, Susan worked at the Galleria location and absolutely loved every minute of it!
Jon, a native Houstonian, spent nine years in public accounting. His demanding job required long hours away from his best bud, Mozzi, a 3 year-old miniature labradoodle. Mozzi wished he could go to work with his dad everyday. Jon couldn't bear leaving Mozzi home by himself and wanted the best for his best bud so he enrolled Mozzi in daycare for some fun, exercise and socialization. Mozzi loved seeing his friends at daycare, both four-legged and two-legged! The tables turned and each time Jon dropped Mozzi off, he wished he could go to daycare with Mozzi! And so began the journey to make his dream come true. Jon knew just the right dog lover for a business partner too.
He pitched the idea to Phu, his brother-in-law. Phu, an architect, lived in Dallas with his family which includes two furry members, Juno, a terrier mix, and Dexter, a miniature labradoodle and Mozzi's brother. For his love of dogs and to bring Dexter and Mozzi back together again, Phu jumped on board and moved down to Houston. It’s a family business, if you can tell!
Jon and Phu founded Camp-Run-A-Mutt Galleria location in 2015, whose business philosophy and love of dogs perfectly aligned with their desire to create a place where dog lovers could drop off their furry loved ones knowing that they would have fun and get exercise in a well supervised, clean and safe environment. They brought the first Camp Run-A-Mutt to Texas so dog lovers and their furry family members in the south can enjoy this wonderful place!
