Scheduled Opening: September 2018
At Camp Run-A-Mutt,
it's all about the dogs...
The award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt™ is the premier cage free doggie 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™ LAX features over 17600 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
So happy I found this place! The staff is great, the webcams let me check on her across the day and Bella Boo is always smiling coming and going. I also love the once a month shot clinic which helps make it more of a one stop shop. Highly recommend.Barbara U.San Diego, CA
Marshmallow LOVES this place. I work nights and sleep during the day so when I get home in the morning she is super excited to the point of dancing on her hind legs because she knows that she's going to camp. As soon as she gets there, she tries to make a b line for the doggy play area to see her friends.Tj S.National City, CA
Just picked my puppy Emma up from a 5 night stay. This is her home away from home . The staff is so loving and caring and she is so happy there . When I rescued her as a 4 month puppy she was nervous and nippy with other dogs. I swear camp 100% turned her around and she now is confident and plays well with all dogs . The best is when she sleeps over she still gets a human to snuggle with instead of a crate . Love this place , they're like her God parentsKoaleen I.Aliso Viejo, CA
Meet the owners
Sidney Long is a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with over 30 years of service. Additionally, he honorably served his country as a United States Marine. He has been training and working dogs for over 45 years. Sidney’s love and enthusiasm for dogs began as a child, when he won his first obedience trial with a dog that he adopted and trained from the local humane society at the age of 5. He continued to train neighborhood dogs as a hobby up until he joined the Marines.
While in the Marines, Sidney continued with his love and desire to train dogs by getting involved and participating in Schutzhund and NAPWDA trials. After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Marines, Sidney soon began his law enforcement career. He then created the K-9 Enforcement program for his agency where he was responsible for the development of policy and procedures, procurement and training of dogs and handlers for law enforcement use. He attained certifications and accolades from several federal agencies, the military, law enforcement and private trainers as a dog trainer, master trainer and problem solver within the working K-9 world. Sidney’s work with dogs has been recognized for its vast range of purposes. To include man trailing, apprehension, protection, narcotics, explosive detection, obedience, and service dog training.
Early in his law enforcement career, He and his wife Angelina also owned and operated a kennel and training facility (Land of Pride Kennels), where he trained dogs for both civilian and law enforcement purposes. Currently, Sidney and his wife are heavily involved in the dog show world competing in conformation and rally events within the AKC community.
Sidney has always felt that one of his main determinations and ambitions in life was to train dogs and to help dog owners with their dog needs and concerns. Now that he is retired and able to fully focus on his passion, the time is right. After much research of the various dog industries, he continued to be drawn to the cage free doggie daycare concept. With its fun, outdoor, cage-free environment, as well as a true, authentic love for dogs, and the overall family atmosphere for its franchisees, Camp Run-A-Mutt was the obvious choice.
He and his wife are the proud owners of 4 dogs: CH Command, Angelina’s service dog (a Bouvier Des Flandres), Rizpah (a Bouvier Des Flandres), Optimus Prime (a Black Russian Terrier), and Colonel Bentley (an English Bulldog). You can see that Sidney has a broad range of experiences with caring for dogs, and he is bringing that knowledge to Camp Run-A-Mutt LAX to create a unique experience for the dogs in his care. Although he has spent a lot of time training working dogs, rest assured that your pup will have plenty of fun at Camp!
