At Camp Run-A-Mutt
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™ Mission Hills features over 4500 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 dog wash, 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.

Camper of the Week!

  • Camper of the Week!
  • Cujo

    10 months
    Pit Mix
    As many of you know, we don't discriminate against any dog based on their breed. Cujo here is a great example of why! Being a Pit Mix with Cujo for a name is highly misleading, because this guy is nothing but a goofball (as you can see)! Cujo is a relatively new camper with us, but he's already made us laugh countless times by his carefree, gooberish nature. He's a perfect example of why every dog should have his day!

Meet the owners

The Camp Run-A-Mutt concept was born in mid 2007. Dennis, Mikel and Severn, who came from very different backgrounds, put our heads together and came up with the obvious: build a place they would bring our own dogs to. A clean, safe place that looked like a dog park with grass and toys, things to climb on, things to crawl in, water - not just to drink but to jump into and splash, humans to play with, and other dogs. No cages and no time left alone. Also, "Muttcam" technology which allowed people, no matter where they were, to watch their dogs having fun all day. Finally, a beautiful, user friendly website that allowed customers to register their dogs, fill out boarding checklists and connect to a social network of other dog lovers. When they opened on February 29th, 2008 they were proud of what they'd created and determined to change the world of dog care.
Since that first day, the guys have seen a recession and competition yet enjoyed continuous growth in the business. They've learned something everyday from every dog that's walked in the door, and there have been thousands. It's not enough to provide a safe place for people to drop off their dogs, you have to love and care for them like your own. Dennis, Mikel and Severn have learned the nuts and bolts of running a successful business, won awards from the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, local television stations and publications along with an A rating from the BBB. Although they've learned a lot, there's is one thing they've never learned, how to love and respect dogs. But, they already knew that.
