Cage Free Daycare

Camp Run-A-Mutt dog daycare and boarding is a true puppy paradise!

Camp Run-A-Mutt offers the most unique cage free daycare anywhere. We feature a park-like outdoor setting on premium synthetic turf, with a splash pond and waterfall. We have ramps, bridges, and tunnels to run through and water proof dog beds to stretch out on in the sunshine. There’s also plenty of fresh drinking water and lots of shade those hot summer days.

While all that is important, it’s what we don’t have that’s just as important - cages. Our campers get to run, chase, fetch, sniff, be sniffed and just be a dog. And it all happens while getting the socialization, loving attention and exercise every dog needs. Our highly qualified team of “Alpha humans” encourages good behavior, safety and fun. Camp Run-A-Mutt guests are never caged, never left unattended and can be watched on our Muttcams from any computer, smart phone or tablet.

Benefits of daycare

Let's face it, our dogs are our "kids", and just like humans, they need love, attention, exercise, and guidance. Doggie daycare provides these essentials. Just interacting with other dogs will help your four-legged friend learn the social skills they need to be happy, confident and healthy. Ideally, building these skills begins when your canine kid is a puppy, but can be learned at any age. Dogs are "pack" animals at their core, and a feeling of belonging and acceptance comes from being around other members of the pack. The great part about Camp Run-A-Mutt is that your fur kid gets to socialize in a physically safe environment, with other dogs whose temperaments have been carefully evaluated, all while being constantly supervised by our staff. Running, jumping, fetching, splashing and chasing are all part of a typical day at CRAM, and while your pup is engaging in these activities they are getting the mental and physical stimulation they need.

Our staff and Campers

Our staff knows the concept of being the "Alpha Dog" in the pack. They have years of experience in dog handling and reading dog body language, and they understand how important it is for a dog to listen and respond for the safety and fun of everyone in the yard. Camper wannabes are required to know basic obedience, show no aggression toward dogs or humans, play well with dogs of all sizes, refrain from jumping onto humans, and not bark excessively. These are the characteristics we look for when testing and they are positively reinforced by our staff even after the dog becomes an official "camper."

Full Service Grooming

We offer full service grooming from a caring, experienced dog groomer.

Imagine your ultimate spa experience. It might include a shower with luxurious shampoos, and a stylist to give you a fresh, new look. But what if the stylist could tell you about your health too? Your pup can get more out of grooming than just a new style. A professional groomer can alert you to your dog’s specific needs, and how to keep their skin and coat in tip-top shape.

Grooming can be as basic as a regular nail trim and filing or Bath & Brush Service to keep your ‘mutt’ super soft and snuggly. Maybe your pup is a fashionista and wants to run with the “best in show” crowd. Poodle trims and sporting clips are available too, or we can create a unique look that lets your pup stand out in the pack.

Our campers never sit in a cage waiting for their appointment. They can be dropped off, play, play, play until they’re dog-tired before getting groomed and beautiful. Afterwards, if there’s time, they can play some more until it’s time to go home. Or if you need to pick up late, your pup can lounge with the groomer until you arrive, so they stay perfectly fluffy. They get a stress free, fun experience and you get a clean, fresh, and tired pup at the end of the day. Talk about convenient!! It’s the ultimate doggie spa treatment.

Dogs who are not “campers” can also be groomed but are kept separate from the rest of the dogs until they are picked up. All “non-campers” need proof of current vaccinations. Appointments are recommended.

Jill comes to Camp Run-A-Mutt with 3 years bathing experience & almost 2 years of grooming experience. She has a passion for all dogs & loves to make them look their best. She treats all of her clients as they were her own while she provides their spa time. She loves to groom all dogs big & small, & is looking forward to seeing yours soon!

Obedience Classes

Our dog training classes are based on positive reinforcement.

Camp Run-A-Mutt believes positive reinforcement training is the only way to go. The positive reinforcement method rewards the dog (by praise, treat or clicker) when desired behavior happens. It's a tried and true method which humans, dogs and Camp Run-A-Mutt prefer.

We offer group training classes that are great for puppies and younger dogs who need a little more practice with the basics such as walking on a loose leash, coming on command, “sit” and “stay.” One thing we know to be true at Camp Run-A-Mutt is you CAN teach old dogs new tricks, so group classes are available for all campers (and non-campers!).

Sign up today, it's easy as "sit, stay"

Camp Run-A-Mutt’s cage free daycare, along with our obedience classes are a winning combination for just about any dog. The earlier your dog starts with socializing and proper training, the better quality of life he, and you, will have. You'll have a dog that’s confident, healthy, and happy because you cared enough to give him exactly what every dog needs.

We encourage the whole family to get involved with training so that’s why our classes are designed to teach the humans as well as the dogs.

Our trainer Roxy Anderson with Finishing School for Dogs is a graduate of Animal Behavior College in Santa Clarita, CA, with over 14 years of experience. She is a certified professional animal trainer, as well as an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. She is also member of Pet Professionals Force Free Guild and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.
