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™ South Bay features over 10,000 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.

Take a Quick Tour

Who let the dogs out?? You can!!

HOORAY!!! WE ARE OPENING ON A LIMITED BASIS!

We hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy. We can’t wait to get back to running, splashing, playing, and loving up your (“our”) pups.

We are happy to announce that we will begin opening limited days and hours starting this week! We will be open Thursday and Friday, May 14th and 15th from 8am – 6pm. We will also begin boarding for those of you who need it, just email us with dates. Starting the week of May 18th, we will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8am – 6pm until we can gauge how often we will have daycare and boarding dogs.

Our updated protocols are:
- All employees will be social distancing while working
- All employees that deal “face-to-face” with clients will be wearing gloves and masks, including our groomers and bathers
- More frequent hand washing and sanitizing will be required by all employees
- Sanitized cleaning in the lobby area and high traffic areas will be more frequent, e.g., mopping the floors, cleaning the counters, shelves, for sale items, highly touched areas, doorknobs, gate, credit card pin pad... name it, it will be extra-special cleaned! – If you have a credit card that you can tap, we can accept that as well so there’s no touching involved!
- We will wipe down your leashes with sanitizing wipes when bringing your pup in
- As a little extra safety pup precaution, we have purchased pet safe Chlorhexidine antiseptic wipes and would like to do a quick wipe down of all dogs entering for daycare or boarding. Please let us know if this is OK with you when dropping off your pup

What we ask from you:
- Please wear a mask when entering our location
- Please enter through the blue gate. We would like one person with their dog(s) to enter one at a time. You can peek in to see who's in the lobby
- Please exit through the blue door
- If you would like us to receive your pup from your car or return your pup to your car, please call us and we can do parking lot drop off/pick up without you entering the building
- For grooming-only dogs with appointments: Please enter via the side door in the driveway. Call the grooming phone number posted on the door and someone will come out to retrieve your pup. When picking up your pup from grooming, please visit our lobby first to pay (if you pay cash you can give it directly to the groomer and not visit the lobby), then wait by the side driveway door, call grooming, and they will bring your pup to you. The side door, grooming room, and area to/from driveway door will be mopped and sanitized more frequently. If you are using a credit card, please visit the lobby before picking up your pup
- If you have had any changes in email, address, phone, vet, etc., please let us know so we can update our software- - Please, please be patient as we maneuver around these safety protocols. Give us a little more time to retrieve your pup when you're dropping off and picking up on the way to/from work

If your pup in need of a bath or haircut, please schedule a grooming appointment at 310-961-2099.

If your pup’s vaccines were updated while we were shut down, please email the most recent records to us at southbay@camprunamutt.com. If they need to be updated, Vetcare will be holding a clinic at our place, with safety precautions in place, on May 23rd from 12:30 to 2:00pm. No appointment needed!

For those pups that might need some non-anesthetic teeth cleaning, SmileSpecialist4Pets will be here on Thursday, May 28 from 11:30am to 2pm with appointments every 10 minutes. Please email us if you would like to schedule an appointment.

As we will be open part time for now, you might have to leave a message when you call. Please leave your name and phone number and we’ll call you back as soon as we can. If you email us, please make sure you also leave a phone number so we can call you back.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU AND YOUR PUPS AGAIN!!!!!

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?

Additional dogs from the same owner are 25% off for any of our daycare and boarding rates. Holiday rates are for the night before the holiday and the night of the holiday. There is a $15 service charge for dogs being dropped off without a reservation or for less than 24 hours notice, if space is available.

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 310-217-8162. 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.

What our customers say

  • We are a "the dog is part of the family" type of family. So naturally we want the best for our dog. We trust our doggies to Camp-Run-a-Mutt and I must say South Bay has become a home away from home and a "summer camp" all in one. The staff are extended family. As my wife and I both work we trust the team to give our boy a happy, stimulated, active day. He always comes home happy and he always is eager to go back. They have bulk pricing. When we had to move out of our house in between escrow on the next house we could not have our large Doberman at our extended family's place so our boy had a second home to stay at just as fun as summer camp. I cannot praise them enough. So glad to have such wonderful people watching our dog at an outdoor, free range facility with cameras!

  • Our dog (Josie) is iffy with people and some dogs when she first meets them. We told the counselors at Camp Run-A-Mutt, in advance, that it might be a process with our dog. Camp Run-A-Mutt worked with us to develop a tailored program to gradually introduce the staff/facilities of Camp Run-A-Mutt to our dog. It took some time, but eventually, our dog finally feels very much at home at Camp Run-A-Mutt. Now Josie loves going to Camp Run-A-Mutt. I really appreciated how the staff took the time and effort to work with us on our unique situation. I'd highly recommend Camp Run-A-Mutt to any pet owner!

Caring staff, amazing care, and they come back home extremely tired lol which is a plus if you had a long day at work and just want to come home and relax with your pup. Highly recommend this place for everyone's pups

Meet the owners

Adele has always had a love and passion for dogs. She has been a dog owner since childhoood and during her many years in the aerospace industry working until the early hours of the morning, she always made time to play ball and give the care and attention her dogs needed so much. 

In 2004, she met Julie Nystrom, whose daughter was in Girl Scouts with Adele's daughter. Julie's love for dogs, her involvement with dog adoptions and the local dog society was a perfect combination and bringing Julie on as Manager helped Adele make the big decision. In 2011, Adele decided to walk away from the corporate world to pursue her dream of doing something she was very passionate about.
