Recreational Agility Classes are held on Thursdays at Camp at 6pm for one hour; $150 for 6 classes. No former agility training is required. Dogs must be on a leash and have a collar; no choke chain or pinch collars. Harnesses are not ideal since they can restrict dog's movement.

Tailwagger's Massage PupPawlates Class

Cost is $180 for a six week session or $40/class. Call 310-994-4305 to sign up.

Thursday classes will be weekly, Tuesday classes will be every other week.

PupPawlates helps to increase core strengthening, help with an increased range of motion and flexibility, neuromuscular facilitation, sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment, and balance control. Whether your dog is involved in agility, dock jumping, other dog sports, is a working dog, or a couch potation with healthier aspirations, core strength is a fundamental element used by your dog to control its body when jumping, turning, running and to help prevent injuries.

Requirements for the class include: you and your dog are healthy enough to participate in the class, the dog must be friendly and 1 year or older, dog's nails must be trimmed and filed, and you will need to bring small treats since this is a rewards based class. See for more information.

K9 Nosework

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog's natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It's a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, burn lots of mental and physical energy and for you to find out just how good your dog's nose is. Especially great for the dog that is uncomfortable around other dogs. Any age dog can participate.

Foster of the Week

  • Foster of the Week
  • Spanky

    3 years
    Staffordshire Terrier
    My name is Spanky and in June I will be 3 yrs. old, before I was rescued I slept outside, chained to a tree with a sweater on the ground to sleep on, and was under weight. In my first year, I went to 3 homes because my humans had to move and couldn't take me. I was attacked by a trained pit bull fighter, I tried to protect myself but I didn't do so well, my foster mom took me and healed me. Now I am neutered, I have all my shots, I take baths (don't like those too much), I am now at my ideal weight, I let my foster mom know when it's time to do my business. She brings me to Camp Run-A-Mutt, so I can run and have fun with my buddies, still a bit shy, but once I get to know you, your my buddy for life. If you want to apply for me contact Julie at or go to their website and down load an application.

Meet the owners

Adele has always had a love and passion for dogs. She has been a dog owner since childhood and, during her many years in the aerospace industry working until the early hours of the morning, she always made time to play ball and give the care and attention her dog's so much needed. She met Julie Nystrom in 2004 who's daughter was in Girl Scouts with Adele's daughter. Julie's love for dogs, her involvement with dog adoptions and the local dog society was a pefect combination and bringing Julie on as Manager helped Adele make the big decision. In 2011 Adele decided to walk away from the corporate world to persue her dream of doing something she was very passionate about.
