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™ San Marcos features over 11000 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.

Obedience programs will be on a break until the new year. Thank you for understanding!

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?

PLEASE BRING YOUR DOG'S KIBBLE PRE-BAGGED IN INDIVIDUAL MEALS any additional food items may be left separate *Pre-paid boarding packages are available for a minimum purchase of 20 nights. Boarding packages must be paid for BEFORE boarding stay. When purchasing 20 nights, you may pay for more nights in increments of 10.*

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 reinforcement 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 888-510-2267. 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.

  • Love this place and that it is kennel free. Tons of shade for the dogs and a little pool for hot days. Our dog loves and I never worries when he's there. Love the cameras during the day so you can watch your puppy on your phone wherever.

Meet the owners

When you stop in to the Camp Run-A-Mutt San Marcos, you will likely find the owners, Lloyd and Sabrina Reid working at the Camp.  They aren’t just owners, they are hands-on, and dedicated to the care and happiness of every dog that walks through the doors of their Camp. These two caring, dog-centric people have participated in years of dog training classes, including basic and advanced obedience, as well as agility, rally and nose work for enjoyment purposes, and Flyball.

Sabrina has been a registered nurse for 20 years, and also works in the field of Substance Abuse. Her real passion is their dogs, and the dogs of every other person she encounters.  She is so devoted to her dogs, her family’s dogs and her neighbor’s dogs, that she thought it would be a good idea to open a dog camp!

Lloyd is a retired Marine and has decades of supervisory experience with training and instruction that translates to his relationships with dogs.  Lucky for the Camp Run-A-Mutt San Marcos staff, he will share his talents with them so that they can deliver the highest quality service to the customers and their dogs.  Lloyd is also a certified Pet Tech Instructor and will provide the staff members with the all-important first-aid and CPR training should any of the pet guests need emergency care on-site. 

This venture is really all about the dogs, so meet the real motivation behind the Camp.  Perhaps the first playmates to welcome your dogs to the Camp will be Betty, a 8-year old Terrier/Dachshund mix, Walter a 7-year old charcoal Lab, and the newest addition to their family, Lois, a 5-year old English Mastiff, lap dog.  And recently they added Charlie a 13-year old French Bull Dog
