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 10000 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.
What our customers say
CRAM is quite simply the best board and care for dogs in the South Bay. We've tried others (and were truly disappointed) but Camp Run-A-Mutt employs caring and experienced workers. We get a full report, including anything like our pup(s) hid at first, were shy, drank a lot, played well. We've always felt very comfortable leaving our pups at CRAM. My sister uses CRAM also and is quite pleased as well.Mona B.Torrance, CA
A previous co-worker recommended Camp Run a Mutt, and I have to say it's been a life-saver for my husband and I. We live in a small 2-bedroom home with no yard space and admittedly, our 5lb maltipoo doesn't get as much outdoor time as I would like - especially after my two kids were born. We tried another day-care previous to this one and it's like night and day. We love how spacious and clean it is outdoors. We appreciate the staff (shout out to Jenna and Chrystal!) and how much love they give to each individual dog there. Most telling however is that our dog's tail wags uncontrollably and barks profusely when we enter the parking lot because she's that excited to spend the day there. Thank you, Camp Run a Mutt, for being her 2nd home!Joyce K.Los Angeles, CA
I have been taking my Bailey girl to Camp Run A Mutt for about four years. She loves going to camp and she loves the wranglers. There are three cage free yards to play in including a fountain for water loving dogs. Several of our neighbor dogs also go to camp I feel very confident that she is in a safe environment and is well taken care of. I especially like the on site grooming facility which makes it a one stop shop to bathe and play. I have encouraged friends and relatives to check it out. We love CRAM!Karen A.Torrance, CA
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.
