I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.
—Gilda Radner
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
—Roger Caras
If I could be half the person my dog is, I’d be twice the human I am.
—Charles Yu
Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.
—Dean Koontz
The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Testimonials

  • We are from AZ and needed a daycare for our Great Dane. We used the Point Loma location. They were amazing! Our Liesl had a great time and we liked the fact we could watch her on our iPhone. We will for sure be bringing her back when we are back this way!

  • I love bring my Toby to Camp Run-A-Mutt Mission Hills! It's because of them that I am thinking of adding a second puppy to my crew. I work all day and I know my Toby is well looked out for. He comes home exhausted and happy, and all he wants to do with me at night is cuddle. I used to feel so neglectful leaving Toby at home, and a dog walker was just not enough for my little guy. Mackenzie, Kari and Mike are always so happy to see us come in and Toby pulls me through their front doors every morning. Thanks Camp Run-A-Mutt and I recommend you guys to everyone!!!

  • There are not enough stars to rate this kennel. It is kept squeaky clean. Everyone that works there is polite, efficient and of course share the love of dogs. My wheaton Murphy especially loves the pool and Julie. Send your dog on vacation, even for 1/2 day, he/she will come home well exercised & ready to relax.

  • My dog is a rescue with crate issues, he recently lost his brother and has an over protective dog training father. I'm very picky about who takes care of my dog and how they do it. This is the only place I'll take my dog in Houston. Their staff is trained, the owners care and are apart of the camp experience daily. Prices are good and I've even sent my own clients there for extra exercise and to encourage socialization. Thanks guys you are great!

  • This is a very clean, well organized business with impressive technologies. I used their daycare services for the first time this week and was very impressed. My dog even got a report card--love it! I will be sure to check the web-cam next time too, what a great feature! We will definitely be back!
