  • Our Dog is Obsessed

    "Yesterday, I took our dog Ruckus to the Run van that picked him up and delivers him from the Portland area. When he saw the Run handler who was driving the van, he pulled me to the van and leaped in. Actions speak louder than words. Ruckus loves spending his day at Run.”

A dogs day at Run! is which means lots of time hiking and running with the pack in our 24-acres (over a million square feet) contained forest. In the evening they have an indoor, luxurious ‘living room’ and other Bunkhouse clients to play with. There are plenty of comfy couches, dog beds, and blankets to lounge and rest. They can also enjoy soft music from our stereo system, blue-blocking lights in the evenings, and unlimited love and attention from us.

What should I pack for my dog's stay?
