At Camp Run-A-Mutt,
it's all about the dogs...
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™ Denver 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
So happy I found this place! The staff is great, the webcams let me check on her across the day and Bella Boo is always smiling coming and going. I also love the once a month shot clinic which helps make it more of a one stop shop. Highly recommend.Barbara U.San Diego, CA
Marshmallow LOVES this place. I work nights and sleep during the day so when I get home in the morning she is super excited to the point of dancing on her hind legs because she knows that she's going to camp. As soon as she gets there, she tries to make a b line for the doggy play area to see her friends.Tj S.National City, CA
Just picked my puppy Emma up from a 5 night stay. This is her home away from home . The staff is so loving and caring and she is so happy there . When I rescued her as a 4 month puppy she was nervous and nippy with other dogs. I swear camp 100% turned her around and she now is confident and plays well with all dogs . The best is when she sleeps over she still gets a human to snuggle with instead of a crate . Love this place , they're like her God parentsKoaleen I.Aliso Viejo, CA
Meet the owners
The husband and wife team of Eli and Fran Shayotovich have lived in Colorado for the last 16 years, toiling away in the pits of Corporate America. Eli has extensive experience in operations management, while Fran supervised a team of highly regarded customer service reps. While their brains were always hard at work, their hearts were always with their dogs.
Rescues with odd personality quirks always seemed to find a way into their home. Their current fur baby is Posey, a boxer/springer mix hilariously referred to as a “Box Spring.” At four years old she still has some anxiety issues; a direct result of being taken away from her mother much too early. She’s afraid of new places - no walks at Home Depot! - and the sound of wind makes her seek refuge in the closet. Prior to Posey they had Osa, an Alaskan Malamute who loved the snow, and most people... but greatly disliked dogs. Except Donatello, the big St. Bernard who lived next door.
Fran and Eli took Posey to doggie daycare at an early age in hopes of easing her anxiety, and over time it did exactly that. But something happened to Eli and Fran as well: the unadulterated love and joy of a dog’s greeting at the end of a long day was the best part of their day. Simply put, dogs made the worst parts of the day vanish with one big ole sloppy kiss.
After seeing this same elation play out over and over with every human/dog team… the thought occurred to them, "why not make this their job?" Thus, the seed was planted and over the next few years Eli and Fran worked diligently towards getting out of the corporate grind and into the furry paws of their own Camp Run-A-Mutt. Their facility offers a huge, park like oasis nestled within the metropolis of Denver, where adoption events and rescue organizations will play a big part of their Camp’s overall vibe.
