This cage-free doggie daycare and boarding facility in Mission Hills has a friendly vibe and warm, welcoming ambiance. With more than 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, four-legged friends can roam, romp and play all day at Camp Run-A-Mutt. Waterfalls, splash pools and misters keeps canines cool in the sometimes blazing Southern California sun, and the grooming services are a bonus for busy pet owners. Playtime means balls, bubbles, Frisbees, climbing platforms and more, while overnight stays for pups mean a cage-free evening, with each canine receiving their own bed. Best of all, webcams let nervous owners keep an eye on their precious pets as they scamper around the facilities.
After spending 10 years living in the United States, Isadora Davis realized that she had looked to her dogs for comfort during the transition from Brazil to America and wanted to honor the creatures that made her smile. The Pet Lounge was born. To pamper pooches, Isadora offers cage-free overnight boarding in suites outfitted with TVs and raised beds. During the day, guests can drop off their pups for daycare or positive-enforcement behavior training. The Pet Lounge’s self-serve washing stations allow owners to use Pet Head shampoo, conditioner, and high-velocity dryers for cleaning their dogs after they’ve rolled around in the mud or participated in a beach-volleyball tournament.
Like their human counterparts, dogs need time to exercise and socialize. Animal lover Char DeLillio opened Dog Gone Adventures to help pet owners give their pups those enriching experiences. She and her staff take groups of dogs on field trips to dog-friendly parks and beaches, where they play fetch with the staff and cavort with one another, which keeps them from trying to wrestle the houseplants when they get home. Char and her team also take pets on long, individual walks and pet-sit at Dog Gone Adventures, pet sitter's home, or pets' home.
