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 10000 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

  • The Best place for my fur baby Lily!!!! She has been there over 6 years (since she was 16 weeks) once a week to socialize with other humans and dogs. IT HAS BEEN THE BEST EXPERIENCE. Because of this early and constant interaction, she is a calm, mild manner, loving little girl who is friendly with people and pups. And if you have never been here, please just go and hang out for 30 minutes at the "peekaboo" window to watch the dogs having a blast in a huge park setting. It will make you smile!

  • This wonderful location is by far the best! We chose camp run a mutt for it's cage free boarding but the staff honestly make it special. Our little guy loves people and has separation anxiety but the staff truly loves all animals and show him so much love! A highlight of the extremely reasonable boarding option is the report card! They really care for your fur baby. Herc the puggle says thank you!

  • I've tried other dog boarding places. Camp Run-a-mutt is the best. The employees genuinely like dogs and it shows through the way they interact with the dogs. My dog loves this place and can't wait to get out of the car when I pull in. Or when I mention 'camp run-a-mutt', his ears perk up. The groomers are also way better than other places I've tried. They pay attention to what I ask for and do a great job every time.

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.
