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

The award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is the premier cage free doggie 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™ South Bay features over 15 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.

FREE Drop in Classes, One Day Only!

Saturday March 10th 

Take a “test drive” with your pup in a Basic Manners and/or Agility class BEFORE you make a commitment to sign up for a 6-week session class! The free drop-in class offerings are:

Manners 1 – Foundations for Good Choices – 11am  

This class will help you set your dog up for success! You’ll learn much more than just Sit, Down, and Stay. We’ll teach you the basics of how your dog learns and why positive training methods work so that you can continue training your dog at home. Learn how to understand your dog so you can help them become the best furry friend they can be. In addition, we will discuss common issues like jumping, over-excitement, and barking at the door and other dogs so that you can have a dog that always makes Good Choices!

Agility Foundations – 12:15 pm

Agility is one of the fastest growing dog sports in the United States. It is a fast paced sport that has dog and handler teams racing against the clock as they navigate through an obstacle course consisting of jumps, ramps, weave poles and tunnels. In our Agility Foundations class, you and your dog will be introduced to the basic handling skills, body awareness, and teamwork to get peak performance. Agility is a great way to deepen your bond with your dog, get some exercise (for both of you), and have a great time!

Be sure to check out the Obedience page for the upcoming schedule of classes for your pup.

  • “DOLLY LOVES CAMPRUNAMUTT! If I would let her she would come every day. Dolly has Separation Anxiety issues but she loves the Staff and doesn't miss me a bit!! { she just can't be left alone at home} She was rescued last December from the shelter, 11 months old, abandoned, no training and not housebroken. She has come a long way in just 5 months! The Staff is very patient with her, even when she nips at hands or ignores them.. she is trying! Your Staff is the BEST!! ”

  • I have been taking my puppy to CRAM since they first opened their doors. They have been amazing! They take great care of my puppy on a daily basis and my puppy has never hesitated going to CRAM. I would highly recommend CRAM for daily care or boarding.

  • I've taken my Jura to CRAM since she was a puppy. So for the past 5 years I've only trusted them to take care of her while I'm at work or away on a trip. Jura is our first dog and we've learned so much from the CRAM staff and they treat Jura and us like family.

Meet the owners

Adele has always had a love and passion for dogs. She has been a dog owner since childhoood 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 dogs needed so much. 

In 2004, she met Julie Nystrom, whose 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 perfect 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 pursue her dream of doing something she was very passionate about.
