A puppy paradise!

Camp Run-A-Mutt has been an award-winning cage-free dog daycare and boarding franchise since 2010. We focus on creating indoor and outdoor fun for dogs in a fully supervised, clean and safe environment. Currently, there are 13 Camp Run-A-Mutt locations established nationwide, and new Camps set to open soon in Columbus, OH, San Diego, CA, and Las Vegas, NV.

Are you a dog lover?

If so, owning a Camp Run-A-Mutt® could be the change you’re looking for. We offer a proven system combined with higher values and standards for pet care. Most of our established locations make over $1 million in annual sales. And with 2021 showing the pet industry to grow to over $123 billion, there’s a lot of exciting growth & opportunity. We help you build your dream business every step of the way, from real estate, materials, marketing, software, and more.

Build a dream business

First and foremost, it’s all about the dogs! Owning a Camp Run-A-Mutt can give you an opportunity to connect with people and their pups in your community, as well as provide an upscale, fun, and safe place for dogs when their people are away.

To most people, their dogs are their kids, and making that connection can not only be rewarding for you, but also for your customers and their pups.

Create a dog’s paradise

Both our daycare and overnight boarding is cage free. Every Camp Run-A-Mutt location is built to have a dog-friendly waterfall/splash pond feature, paw-friendly synthetic turf, joint-friendly rubber flooring, a live Muttcam system, and use of our proprietary software for a seamless check-in process. Our goal is to help you build the ultimate paradise for pups in your community.

Receive hands-on training & support

From day one, we help you find the right location for your Camp, get the right permitting, and help with the layout, design, and build-out. We also provide hands-on training for you, as well as staff, prior to your opening weekend. You have direct access to us for assistance when needed, and we check in to see how we can continue to help you succeed.

Minimize your risk

Having a website, custom software, proven model, marketing material and support from day one can shorten your ROI, giving you the best chance to minimize risk. While you’re working hard on the scene, we’re behind the scenes making sure all technologies are running and you’re supported as you take this leap of faith in yourself.
