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™ Wilmington features over 11,000 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.

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?

Reservations are required for boarding. Military service members (retired or active) and additional dogs in the same family will receive a 10% discount off standard boarding prices. *Some restrictions apply.

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.

Meet the owners

Family owned and operated, John and Lisa, and their daughter Jenna, combined their love for animals with their passion for the community all into one doggy dream destination. Growing up with dogs all their lives, the business decision was simple! This summer they are opening up camp to bring the cage-free experience to the dogs of Wilmington.

John, Jenna and Lisa all have a background in entrepreneurship and animal care. In 2009 they owned a ranch where they had several horses, dogs, and even some ducks.  They discovered their love for animals and got to experience them in a truly natural state. This is why they were so drawn to Camp Run-A-Mutt and its cage-free concept, because they put the dogs first. All three of the camp owners can’t wait to see the dogs’ excitement when they come to play with their friends every week.

Camp Run-A-Mutt is Wilmington’s happy place. Come share in the experience and let your dog be one happy camper. John, Jenna and Lisa can’t wait to personally get to know all the dogs, their different personalities and figure out ways to make each and every one feel like they are at home.
