Let your dog run and play in our spacious indoor and outdoor play areas.

Cage Free Daycare

Camp Run-A-Mutt dog daycare and boarding is a true puppy paradise!

Camp Run-A-Mutt offers the most unique cage free daycare anywhere. We feature a park-like outdoor setting on premium synthetic turf, with a splash pond and waterfall. We have ramps, bridges, and tunnels to run through and water proof dog beds to stretch out on in the sunshine. There’s also plenty of fresh drinking water and lots of shade those hot summer days.

While all that is important, it’s what we don’t have that’s just as important - cages. Our campers get to run, chase, fetch, sniff, be sniffed and just be a dog. And it all happens while getting the socialization, loving attention and exercise every dog needs. Our highly qualified team of “Alpha humans” encourages good behavior, safety and fun. Camp Run-A-Mutt guests are never caged, never left unattended and can be watched on our Muttcams from any computer, smart phone or tablet.

Benefits of daycare

Let's face it, our dogs are our "kids", and just like humans, they need love, attention, exercise, and guidance. Doggie daycare provides these essentials. Just interacting with other dogs will help your four-legged friend learn the social skills they need to be happy, confident and healthy. Ideally, building these skills begins when your canine kid is a puppy, but can be learned at any age. 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 fur kid gets to socialize in a physically safe environment, with other dogs whose temperaments have been carefully evaluated, all while being constantly supervised by our staff. Running, jumping, fetching, splashing and chasing are all part of a typical day at CRAM, and while your pup is engaging in these activities they are getting the mental and physical stimulation they 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 reading dog body language, and they understand how important it is for a dog to listen and respond for the safety and fun of everyone in the yard. Camper wannabes are required to know basic obedience, show no aggression toward dogs or humans, play well with dogs of all sizes, refrain from jumping onto humans, and not bark excessively. These are the characteristics we look for when testing and they are positively reinforced by our staff even after the dog becomes an official "camper."

Cage Free Boarding

Our overnight boarding, like our daycare, is totally crage free and supervised 27/7.

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 dinnertime rolls around, they are brought into our large rubber floored play room and fed in their own private areas. After supper, they get to romp around a little while longer, to get out any leftover energy. Then when the sun goes down, they come back inside and settle in for a night of snuggling, 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 be as close as possible to what they experience at home. Like our daycare, boarding is cage free and dogs are never left unattended. In fact, our "alpha human" stays with them in the same room all night. 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 one full “test day” (minimum six hours) for evaluation to determine if they will get along in a cage free environment. There is a discounted fee of $20 for this test day. We ask you to supply your dog’s regular food and medications, but all feedings and administering of medications is included in the cost for boarding. You can also provide their detailed care instructions using our Boarding Checklist, which can easily be filled out (and updated) online. Drop off time is before 12:00 noon and pick up is before close of business on the last day of their stay.

Boarding rates

Why pay for "extras" when they're really necessities?

We offer a 10% HERO discount (including military, law enforcement, first responders, doctors, nurses, and teachers) for daycare and boarding. There is also a 10% discount for additional dogs in the same family. *Some restrictions apply.

Full Service Grooming

We offer full service grooming from a caring, experienced dog groomer.

Imagine your ultimate spa experience. It might include a shower with luxurious shampoos, and a stylist to give you a fresh, new look. But what if the stylist could tell you about your health too? Your pup can get more out of grooming than just a new style. A professional groomer can alert you to your dog’s specific needs, and how to keep their skin and coat in tip-top shape.

Grooming can be as basic as a regular nail trim and filing or Bath & Brush Service to keep your ‘mutt’ super soft and snuggly. Maybe your pup is a fashionista and wants to run with the “best in show” crowd. Poodle trims and sporting clips are available too, or we can create a unique look that lets your pup stand out in the pack.

Our campers never sit in a cage waiting for their appointment. They can be dropped off, play, play, play until they’re dog-tired before getting groomed and beautiful. Afterwards, if there’s time, they can play some more until it’s time to go home. Or if you need to pick up late, your pup can lounge with the groomer until you arrive, so they stay perfectly fluffy. They get a stress free, fun experience and you get a clean, fresh, and tired pup at the end of the day. Talk about convenient!! It’s the ultimate doggie spa treatment.

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. Appointments are recommended.

Camp Run-A-Mutt is proud to offer full service grooming by our fantastic, highly skilled and talented groomers:

Jasmine has been professionally grooming for over 12 years.  Her love of dogs and attention to detail has earned her many loyal customers who keep bringing their fur babies back for more pampering! Jasmine deeply believes in being honest, organized and doing your absolute best in everything you do.  With that mindset, Jasmine worked her way up the ranks from scrubbing fish tanks and hampster cages to being certified as a Pet Stylist and eventually becoming a Salon Manager.  As a pet parent you can expect 100% transparency and no surprises from Jasmine.  Safety of your fur baby and groomer will always be her first priority.  As well as, positive reinforcement.  That being said, Jasmine is comfortable working with toy breeds all the way up to our gentle giant breeds, including Military and Police K-9's. 

Fun Fact:  Jasmine was raised with a variety of animals and the chores that come along with them.  Including bottle feeding raccoons, deer and 2 African Lions.

Christina is a grooming academy graduate, certified as a dog and cat stylist.  She brings over 13 years of experience in pet care to Camp Run-A-Mutt LAX.  Although Christina has only been certified for 13 years, her love for grooming actually began many years ago.  She was a child when she groomed her first cat.  Christina is now a senior level cat groomer with 24 years experience grooming felines.  She specializes in the art form of compassionate grooming.  A practice that revovles around taking the time to ease fears, by creating a positive experience with positive reinforcement.

Camp Run-A-Mutt LAX Groomers take pride in doing their best to work around your schedule so your pup can be squeaky clean when you come to pick 'em up. 

(Note: Grooming appointments are required for all services. Please make sure to make an appointment as soon as possible to ensure your dog will be able to receive a salon day with our groomer on the day of your choice.)

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.

Obedience Classes

Our dog training classes are based on positive reinforcement.

Camp Run-A-Mutt believes positive reinforcement training is the only way to go. The positive reinforcement method rewards the dog (by praise, treat or clicker) when desired behavior happens. It's a tried and true method which humans, dogs and Camp Run-A-Mutt prefer.

We offer group training classes that are great for puppies and younger dogs who need a little more practice with the basics such as walking on a loose leash, coming on command, “sit” and “stay.” One thing we know to be true at Camp Run-A-Mutt is you CAN teach old dogs new tricks, so group classes are available for all campers (and non-campers!).

Sign up today, it's easy as "sit, stay"

Camp Run-A-Mutt’s cage free daycare, along with our obedience classes are a winning combination for just about any dog. The earlier your dog starts with socializing and proper training, the better quality of life he, and you, will have. You'll have a dog that’s confident, healthy, and happy because you cared enough to give him exactly what every dog needs.

We encourage the whole family to get involved with training so that’s why our classes are designed to teach the humans as well as the dogs.
