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 15,000 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 locations

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

  • This is a great place! They truly get to know each dog and helped me a lot by keeping with his training and not allowing him to jump. When my dog got hurt by ripping off his nail they handled it perfectly. Called me and kept him isolated and calm until I could get him. The staff here really like their job and work hard to keep the pups happy and healthy. I recommend them any chance I get.

  • I cannot say enough great things about this Camp! The staff is fabulous! They are so caring, and provide the necessary comfort for shy animals! My little man comes home happy, and he goes in happy! Watching him on the mutt-cam is very cool (a little difficult to see, but still cool) We had a 2 night over night visit and i felt so peaceful going out of town knowing he was well taken care of AND SAFE!!! The fact that is is cage less, and has indoors and outdoor play areas is the reason I chose this camp (I toured 3 other facilities) After comparing the charges and the advantages of Camp- Run-A-Mutt, it is by far more worth the money!

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.
