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

Cage free dog daycare is the best option for your pup!

The award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is the premier cage free dog 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™ Chula Vista features over 16,000 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.

Daycare

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.

Boarding

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.

Boarding rates

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

Holiday boarding rates will apply for the following nights: Thanksgiving (11/25/2020 - 11/29/2020), Christmas Holidays (12/18/2020 - 1/02/2021).

Grooming

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.

Obedience

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.

Vaccination Info:

Have your veterinarian email vaccination papers to or have them faxed to us at 619-426-6889. We require current standings on Bordetella, Distemper, Parvo, Canine Influenza Virus (both H3N2 and H3N8 strains) and Rabies. ALL dogs over seven months must be spayed or neutered. We accept all valid titer tests.

What our customers say

  • Well, this has taken me too long to write but I had to let you know my experience with Camp Run-a-Mutt Chula Vista. I have been taking my Rottweilers to them for over 6 years. My first fur baby King went to him from age 4 months to the day he went to heaven. Much too soon! He was only 5 years old. He developed cancer and it was devastating! Chad and Paul took care of King for me during these difficult times so he could still play. They gave him his medication and made sure he ate and drank which helped me tremendously! They never charged me extra for all of the additional things that they did for King. They are selfless and have a level of integrity that I have rarely came across in my life. They helped me with King in so many ways! From his super scared first day to literally the day he died. They let him play his last day on earth and he was so happy. I can never thank them enough for this. When King passed away, I could not heal. I was blessed enough to be able to adopt King's 1/2 brother, Champ! He has been going to CRAM since day one! He has gone through the training class at CRAM and it has helped him develop into a well-mannered dogchild. Champ, aka Champy, much like his brother, can't wait to go to CRAM! He LOVES all of the team at CRAM like they are family. Camp Run-a-Mutt Chula Vista is not only dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment for dogs, but also fulfilling their physical and social needs in a structured and supervised environment. I have never witnessed the level of expertise that Paul and Chad have of communicating with my dogs. Our fur babies are their number one priority and they do an amazing job of ensuring that our babies build relationships with each other and learn about interacting in a pack atmosphere cage free! CRAM is extremely nice, clean and organized. They offer grooming and boarding both of which I take advantage of often! I Would highly recommend this place for your fur baby. You will never be disappointed.

  • I can't thank Camp Run A Mutt enough for the extra love, attention and care they provide to Chief and Rocky. It gives me so much piece of mind they are being loved and pampered. Having the ability to check in on them throughout the day gives me peace of mind and allows me to focus on enjoying a much needed vacation. Your dog needs time away from family too to grow and make new friends. Camp Run A Mutt is the only place my precious Frenchie's will go. Camp Run A Mutt has a great team devoted to making every dogs experience enjoyable. Love and hugs to my Camp Run a Mutt family. Chief and Rocky's mum

  • This is a excellent place to take your best friend! The staff are dog-wise, honest, and friendly. It is obvious they care about me and my dog. The staff knows dog behavior and has given me tips for training. They also take great care to match dog play energy levels and are careful to make sure no one gets hurt. I have also been impressed about the honesty of the staff. Once I thought I had used up all of my passes and left to get in my car. One of the owners ran into the parking lot to stop me, and told me that I had another visit on my pass--something they did not have to do. Another time my dog had a furminator grooming and even though he was there on a full day pass, the furminator treatment took many hours, so they only charged me for a half day. I must give kudos to them for always informing me of the least expensive options. The very friendly staff greets and says good-bye. They always have time to answer questions and treat me like I am the only customer in the room. Other features I enjoy are the convenience of many services and products at this site. They have grooming, shots, dog food, some dog products, and some training available at the site, so I don't have to make an extra trip somewhere else. I highly recommend you put Camp Run-A-Mutt in Chula Vista on your list.

Meet the owners

Originally from the Midwest, Paul (from Nebraska) and Chad (from Indiana) each had a vast history of owning family pets – primarily dogs but also cats, birds, rats and even squirrels. They moved to San Diego in 1993 with a dream of one day working together helping animals. As with most things, dreams cost money, so their dream was put on hold. Paul has spent the last 17 years in banking and mortgage loan originating while Chad’s career took him into more of a technical direction. Most recently Chad spent the last 15 years in the IT department of a clinical staffing company as a Systems Analyst/Project Manager.

 

After being introduced to Camp Run-A-Mutt, Paul and Chad knew they found a business concept that had everything they were looking for so they could live out their dream. They couldn’t wait for their two miniature pinschers Ace and Dash to have their first day at Camp as well as spending their working days with lots of other four-legged friends. As a fellow dog-lover you know that your pets are not just pets, but a part of the family. You can rest assured that at camp your four-legged family members are happy, safe, and sound under the watchful eye of the well-trained staff (as well as yours, through the website “Muttcams”).
