Run! Day Camp for Dogs is no ordinary dog daycare and dog boarding hotel. Off-leash exercise, socialization, and mental stimulation in a natural, forested, outdoor environment can transform a dog’s life. We work with clients, trainers and veterinarians to help make positive changes in dogs’ energy levels, physical health, socialization skills and state of mind.

Dog Grooming Portland

We come to you

  • Schedule to meet a Run! shuttle at one of our convenient Portland area meeting locations/times.
  • Our customized dog shuttles are one-of-a-kind, climate-controlled, safe, and comfortable. Our vehicles exceed all canine transportation needs for the ultimate ride to dog daycare and dog boarding.
  • For an additional fee, utilize our door-to-door service. (Please verify that you are inside of our service area.)

The adventure begins

  • Run! dog shuttle vans operate between Portland and our private, 18 acre farm property (over 784,000 square feet) of fenced forest.
  • The dogs run off-leash, hiking and running under the constant supervision of the professional handlers.
  • Every dog gets to exercise at their own pace during their stay at our dog daycare and dog lodging.

At the end of the day

  • Every dog gets a warm water rinse, a towel dry. Then back to Portland, where dogs are returned happy and tired.
  • We love having dogs stay with us 24/7. Our bunkhouse lodging is full of comfy couches and dog beds for overnight campers.
  • Bunkhouse dog boarding reservations fill up fast, so please plan ahead! Learn more about our bunkhouse here.

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 pigs.
