Cage Free Daycare

Camp Run-A-Mutt dog daycare and boarding is a true puppy paradise!

Camp Run-A-Mutt offers the most unique cage free daycare anywhere. We feature a park-like outdoor setting on premium synthetic turf, with a splash pond and waterfall. We have ramps, bridges, and tunnels to run through and water proof dog beds to stretch out on in the sunshine. There’s also plenty of fresh drinking water and lots of shade those hot summer days.

While all that is important, it’s what we don’t have that’s just as important - cages. Our campers get to run, chase, fetch, sniff, be sniffed and just be a dog. And it all happens while getting the socialization, loving attention and exercise every dog needs. Our highly qualified team of “Alpha humans” encourages good behavior, safety and fun. Camp Run-A-Mutt guests are never caged, never left unattended and can be watched on our Muttcams from any computer, smart phone or tablet.

Benefits of daycare

Let's face it, our dogs are our "kids", and just like humans, they need love, attention, exercise, and guidance. Doggie daycare provides these essentials. Just interacting with other dogs will help your four-legged friend learn the social skills they need to be happy, confident and healthy. Ideally, building these skills begins when your canine kid is a puppy, but can be learned at any age. Dogs are "pack" animals at their core, and a feeling of belonging and acceptance comes from being around other members of the pack. The great part about Camp Run-A-Mutt is that your fur kid gets to socialize in a physically safe environment, with other dogs whose temperaments have been carefully evaluated, all while being constantly supervised by our staff. Running, jumping, fetching, splashing and chasing are all part of a typical day at CRAM, and while your pup is engaging in these activities they are getting the mental and physical stimulation they need.

Our staff and Campers

Our staff knows the concept of being the "Alpha Dog" in the pack. They have years of experience in dog handling and reading dog body language, and they understand how important it is for a dog to listen and respond for the safety and fun of everyone in the yard. Camper wannabes are required to know basic obedience, show no aggression toward dogs or humans, play well with dogs of all sizes, refrain from jumping onto humans, and not bark excessively. These are the characteristics we look for when testing and they are positively reinforced by our staff even after the dog becomes an official "camper."

Cage Free Boarding

Our overnight boarding, like our daycare, is totally crage free and supervised 27/7.

Campers who qualify to be overnight guests are in for a wonderful experience. Not only do they get to play with their buddies all day, when dinnertime rolls around, they are brought into our large rubber floored play room and fed in their own private areas. After supper, they get to romp around a little while longer, to get out any leftover energy. Then when the sun goes down, they come back inside and settle in for a night of snuggling, television, and community snoozing with the pack. For many dogs, boarding can be a stressful experience. To minimize this stress, our goal is to have your dog's stay be as close as possible to what they experience at home. Like our daycare, boarding is cage free and dogs are never left unattended. In fact, our "alpha human" stays with them in the same room all night. It’s kind of like a slum-grrr party.


While we think cage free is the best way to go, it's not for all dogs. Dogs who have not attended Camp Run-A-Mutt for daycare are required to stay at least one full “test day” (minimum six hours) for evaluation to determine if they will get along in a cage free environment. There is a discounted fee of $29 for this test day. We ask you to supply your dog’s regular food and medications, but all feedings and administering of medications is included in the cost for boarding. You can also provide their detailed care instructions using our Boarding Checklist, which can easily be filled out (and updated) online. Drop off time is before 12:00 noon and pick up is before close of business on the last day of their stay.

Boarding rates

Why pay for "extras" when they're really necessities?

Additional dogs from the same owner are 40% off for any of our daycare and boarding rates. Holiday rates are for the night before the holiday and the night of the holiday. There is a $15 service charge for dogs being dropped off without a reservation or for less than 24 hours notice, if space is available.

Full Service Grooming

We offer full service grooming from a caring, experienced dog groomer.

Imagine your ultimate spa experience. It might include a shower with luxurious shampoos, and a stylist to give you a fresh, new look. But what if the stylist could tell you about your health too? Your pup can get more out of grooming than just a new style. A professional groomer can alert you to your dog’s specific needs, and how to keep their skin and coat in tip-top shape.

Grooming can be as basic as a regular nail trim and filing or Bath & Brush Service to keep your ‘mutt’ super soft and snuggly. Maybe your pup is a fashionista and wants to run with the “best in show” crowd. Poodle trims and sporting clips are available too, or we can create a unique look that lets your pup stand out in the pack.

Our campers never sit in a cage waiting for their appointment. They can be dropped off, play, play, play until they’re dog-tired before getting groomed and beautiful. Afterwards, if there’s time, they can play some more until it’s time to go home. Or if you need to pick up late, your pup can lounge with the groomer until you arrive, so they stay perfectly fluffy. They get a stress free, fun experience and you get a clean, fresh, and tired pup at the end of the day. Talk about convenient!! It’s the ultimate doggie spa treatment.

Dogs who are not “campers” can also be groomed but are kept separate from the rest of the dogs until they are picked up. All “non-campers” need proof of current vaccinations. Appointments are recommended.

We offer full service grooming 7 days a week. Camp Run-A-Mutt's groomers' love of dogs and attention to detail has made everyone who has put their trust in them become a repeat customer.

Grooming appointments are required for all services. Please make sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to ensure your dog will be able to receive a spa day with our groomer on the day of your choice. Please call us at 310-961-2099 for grooming prices specific to your breed of dog, to make an appointment, or sign up on the Schedule Appointment tab on the right and we will get back to you to schedule a time.  All “non-campers” need proof of current vaccinations.

Obedience Classes

Our dog training classes are based on positive reinforcement.

Camp Run-A-Mutt believes positive reinforcement training is the only way to go. The positive reinforcement method rewards the dog (by praise, treat or clicker) when desired behavior happens. It's a tried and true method which humans, dogs and Camp Run-A-Mutt prefer.

We offer group training classes that are great for puppies and younger dogs who need a little more practice with the basics such as walking on a loose leash, coming on command, “sit” and “stay.” One thing we know to be true at Camp Run-A-Mutt is you CAN teach old dogs new tricks, so group classes are available for all campers (and non-campers!).

Sign up today, it's easy as "sit, stay"

Camp Run-A-Mutt’s cage free daycare, along with our obedience classes are a winning combination for just about any dog. The earlier your dog starts with socializing and proper training, the better quality of life he, and you, will have. You'll have a dog that’s confident, healthy, and happy because you cared enough to give him exactly what every dog needs.

We encourage the whole family to get involved with training so that’s why our classes are designed to teach the humans as well as the dogs.

Camp Run-A-Mutt South Bay is happy to announce that we are working with trainers Robin Bronner and Melanie Wyatt from Good Choices Dog Training. They have years of experience training thousands of dogs in Basic Manners, Agility, Flyball, and their specialty, Tricks! Both Robin and Melanie are Certified Professional Dog Trainers, Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) and regularly attend conferences, seminars, and workshops so that they may offer their clients the most current information and techniques possible.  Robin is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.

Visit their website at for more info on group classes, private classes, board and train, etc. Robin can also be reached at 424-262-5004 or for more information or for general training questions. You can also quickly register for classes via this link

Good Choices Dog Training’s Philosophy uses science-based, positive methods to humanely train dogs. Only positive reinforcement has been consistently proven to result in happier, healthier dogs with results that last. Organizations such as the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, American Humane Society, and The Pet Professional Guild all adhere to the same evidence-based training methods utilized by our Trainers at Good Choices Dog Training. Using force free, fear free, positive methods, our trainers strive to provide the highest quality of training for all dogs--regardless of breed, size, issue, and of course, age. Your dog is never too old to learn new tricks!

Agility Foundations

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! For dogs 4 months and up who have completed Manners 1 or have passed our placement test.

This workshop meets over 3 consecutive weeks. All dogs must wear a flat collar or harness. No prong, choke, or pinch collars are permitted. All leashes must be 6-10 feet, no retractable leashes are permitted.
