Run! Day Camp for Dogs is no ordinary dog daycare and dog boarding at our dog hotel. We believe that off-leash exercise, socialization, and mental stimulation in a natural outdoor environment can transform a dog’s life. We work with clients (as well as many veterinarians) to help make positive changes in dogs’ energy levels, physical health, socialization skills and state of mind.
Erica Ochs Owner and Founder of Run! Day Camp for Dogs Erica Ochs established her dog daycare and dog boarding business in the Portland area based on her own dogs' needs. With an overwhelming desire not to leave them at home while at work, in 1998 she founded Run! Day Camp For Dogs. Her passion for all animals dates back to the farm she lived on as a child in Ashland. Working with dogs every day has also enabled her to pursue her passion for running. The Run! property is also home to almost 30 rescue animals including dogs, cats, sheep, goats and a pig.
If you TRULY want to spoil your dog, forget about the fancy new coat or that expensive new toy... send them out with Erica and Dave! This experience is EXACTLY what your dog is dreaming about when their paws are fluttering in their sleep! They deserve this.
She was exhausted. All she wanted to do was eat and sleep last night. I had to force her out of bed this morning to go for our morning walk.
The biggest endorsement for Run! comes from our dog Leopold. He now knows which days Run! will come to get him, and he sits with his nose to the window waiting for the van. When the van pulls up to the curb he barks and whines with excitement. He doesn't show that much excitement when we come home...
