Testimonials

"I literally can't say enough good things..."

I literally can't say enough good things about this place. Brandi truly truly loves and adores animals and her job and it shows. When I came in, she acted like my pup, Gus, was the best and most precious dog in the world.
They took time to get to know my pup before taking him; diet, medicine, behaviors, how he is with other dogs, etc.
I loved that I could look at the cameras and see how he was doing ANYTIME- it was so easy and simple! I could see the employees loving on my pup and playing with him. Honestly, I learned so much about my dog while watching the videos.

"We will definitely be back"

Just experienced a temperament test and daycare at CRAM - LAX. I am impressed by Sidney's breadth of knowledge and professionalism. The lady at the front desk was delightful. At the end of my dog's visit, he was happy and worn out. I appreciate the care they provided to my pup. The cameras put my mind at ease and the staff made me feel that my lil guy would be safe there. We will definitely be back. Thanks CRAM-LAX!

"We are thrilled to have found a program that we trust"

We tried three other "schools" and several in-home services for our sweet pup before we found Camp Run-A-Mutt.  None gave us the confidence that Camp Run-A-Mutt does.  Sidney Long's decades of professional experience in dog handling and his philosophy to provide "organized chaos" for the pups let us know that our Daisy would be well cared for.  The flexibility in scheduling, close supervision of the dogs, and the enrichment activities (our pup LOVES water!) let us know we'd made the right choice.  We are thrilled to have found a program that we trust and can use for boarding or if Daisy just needs some "organized chaos" to help her burn off some of her excess energy!

"My pup absolutely loves going to daycare"

Honestly I don't know where to even start. I am so happy I found Camp Run-A-Mutt Point Loma! my pup absolutely loves going to daycare and I never worry when she's there. I LOVE being able to watch her on camera and know she's having so much fun with her buds and getting lots of loving from the staff.  I'm so grateful they care so much about their animals and the pet parents and ensure that all the pups are well taken care under their watch.

"Constant love & attention from the team"

Looking for a comfy space that feels like home for your furry friend? Camp Run A Mutt should be a contender! A paradise for the barking babies, this is essentially daycare for your pup. Complete with a custom name tag for their basket of camp items and report cards! The owners and entire team at CRAM are all so sweet, Babs gets so excited when she sees them. I really love that their boarding fee includes daycare! Knowing that my baby is getting a good nights rest and waking up to more fun with her friends makes me so happy. Give yourself a day off and your dog a day at camp!

"I can't say enough about them!"

Ms Beverly and the counselors are all wonderful!  It's a clean and fun environment. My two girls loving going! I LOVE that I can watch them on camera all day when I'm at work, or on the go via the app. I really love that there are no cages and they can play, or nap when THEY want to.. no designated play/ kennel times.  This place is wonderful and I can't say enough about them!

"You all are awesome!"

Camp Run A Mutt is absolutely wonderful!! My 2 and a half year old Welsh terrier, Morgan has a blast every time she goes. She is sound asleep as soon as we get home. They have a great staff that always makes me feel welcomed and I never hesitate to leave my crazy wild Morgan with them. Thanks Dawn, Aaron, Jessica and the rest of the staff for taking such good care of my baby! You all are awesome!!

"Fantastic and so loving"

The staff is fantastic and so loving and accommodating of the dogs. I have a very shy and skittish dog and they have been so great with helping to get her out of her shell. The Muttcams are so much fun! I love watching all the dogs playing -- and checking in on my dog too. I watch them even when she isn't there!

Care after Covid: Who’s Your Best Friend?

Mask on, mask off. Social distance or no. The pandemic may be heading out, but things are no less complicated. It’s been a tough year. Missing our family and friends, tired of being cooped up. Our healthy eating habits have gone by the wayside and a lot of us have put on the dreaded "Coronavirus 15."  Too much Netflix, HBO Max, and Amazon all while stuffing our faces with too much food. But the one thing we could count on was...
