OPENING FALL 2019
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™ Gainesville features over 11,000 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.

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
Husband and wife team Brandi Ormerod and Michael Siblik have always loved dogs. Brandi grew up in Cobourg, ON and pursued a career in academic research – focused upon animal cognition – that took her to Kingston, ON, Vancouver, BC, Palo Alto, CA and finally to Gainesville, FL. Brandi’s beloved husky/lab cross Jasper made the trek with her from Vancouver to Palo Alto and finally to Gainesville. Brandi and Jasper quickly fell in love with Gainesville but discovered that Gainesville needed an amazing place for dogs to play, socialize and stay when their parents go away.
Michael grew up in Bolingbrook, IL and has a corporate background in customer service, accounts receivable, operations management and land/air logistics. Michael joined Brandi and Jasper in Gainesville several years ago. In 2018, Michael and Brandi decided to combine their love for dogs with their respective expertises to open Camp Run-A-Mutt, Gainesville. They knew it was the kind of paradise that Jasper would have loved – a place to splash around and play all day long with people and furry friends (this one’s for you buddy!).
Michael and Brandi, now parents to 3 little rescue mutts named Wiggy (a zany little Australian Cattle dog mix), Tish (a playful Black-mouthed Cur Mix) and Bella (a sweet Golden Retriever mix tripawd who is a bit of a local celebrity after surviving 9 months alone in the wild) are super excited to be bringing Camp Run-A-Mutt to Gainesville. You can leave your fur babies guilt- (and completely cage-) free for daycare while you work or for boarding while you vacation. Mike, Brandi and their employees will give your fur babies all of the love, fun and care that they get at home!
