Camp Run-A-Mutt

The Camp Run-A-Mutt franchise is privately owned and operated by its original owners, Dennis, Severn and Mikel. When you inquire about a franchise opportunity, you reach the owners, not a sales person, not a franchise broker or a department. We opened the first Camp in 2008 and our success provided a path to franchising in 2010. We've learned from the experience of caring for thousands of dogs and are passionate about our business, dogs, and our franchisees who want to expand our unique cage free daycare/boarding concept. We offer what the big franchises offer, at a realistic price and a personal touch that only a passionate business owner can provide. As the world returns to normal, we are more optimistic than ever and looking forward to finding the right people who can help us provide compassionate daycare/boarding for every dog.
