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™ Phoenix features over 15000 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
Cindy and Kevin Stockard, along with their two teenagers and two dogs, are happy to become a part of the Camp Run-A-Mutt family.
Cindy has always been an animal lover and has had dogs in her life since childhood. Because of her love for dogs Cindy decided to go back to school and get a degree as a Veterinary Technician (Nurse). Prior to becoming a Vet Tech Cindy was an office manager for a local home appraisal office and managed much of their day-to-day business. Most recently she worked for an emergency animal hospital and continues to stay current with her tech education. The Stockard family has had many friends and family entrust their dogs to them while traveling. Their most exciting experience was having four Great Danes stay with them for a week!
Kevin recently retired from the Army National Guard after 25 years of service and three deployments to the Middle East. He held multiple positions including Infantryman, Supply Specialist, Criminal Analyst, and Air Traffic Controller. Kevin’s civilian path has always involved computers and he is currently working as a Financial Systems Analyst. He will be using his computer expertise to make sure the business runs smoothly from all its computer programs to incorporating new technologies to make your pup’s stay flawless. Kevin did not grow up with dogs but after marrying the queen dog lover herself, his love for dogs has bloomed. Together they have passed on their passion and love for dogs to their two children.
Cindy and Kevin had been looking for ways to open an indoor dog park in Phoenix. They were frustrated that there was nowhere for their dogs to run and play for half the year because of the heat. On a last-minute trip to San Diego they found Camp Run-A-Mutt Point Loma near Sea World. After their dogs spent the day there, they decided this is exactly what Phoenix needed.
The Stockard family currently has two standard poodles. Misa is their five-year-old white poodle. Misa loves to have her fur dyed different colors. She's had almost every color of the rainbow on her ears and tail. Tamarii is the baby of the family, she is two years old and has amazingly soft, crushed velvet, black fur. Tamarii is the happiest dog you’ll ever meet. Misa and Tamarii are excited to be “ambassadogs” for the Phoenix Camp Run-A-Mutt family!
