The collars are costly, but what price could we ever put on our beloved pets.

It’s a dog Bed and Breakfast….at the base of Mt Madonna on the coast side. Lovely climate in Corralitos/Watsonville.
Here at Run Amuck Farm we love dogs. Your dog will live with us as one of our own. They will get to hang out, roll on the lawn, splash in the water, and most of all, play with other well socialized dogs. Each dog is given lots of affection and belly rubs. I t’s like they get to go to Grandma’s farm. ( Except Grandam is a nut with ten dogs!)
We like it as much as they do! This is the best job ever!
We are fortunate to have found Adrienne, Isabella, Gabrielle, Kyra to join our team. Dogs are not left unattended. EVER.
Dogs sleep in the house and choose a spot of their liking. No dog who is housebroken is forced to sleep in a crate. They can crate if they prefer, but it’s up to the dog. Crates can offer a space to relax and retreat. All dogs are offered a crate if they choose. It’s surprising to how many dogs go to their crates on their own from time to time. It’s a natural behavior to want their own space. At the end of a ay here at Run Amuck it’s really fun to watch them run into the house and very often a crate.
IS YOUR VACATION DEPENDENT ON ONE PERSON CARING FOR YOUR DOG? Imagine a last minute illness or a flaky housesitter cancelling on you! We have heard this story often. Here at Run Amuck we have several folks on staff who will care for your dog. Marilyn just had a recent 9 day hospital stay. Service to our clients was not interrupted. Thank you Adrienne for working extra hours and for Gabrielle and Kyra too. It was nice to know the dogs were well cared for ” no Matter What”.
We are proud of our service pledge to you and your wonderful dogs.
We feed your food, so there is not digestive problems caused by a food switch. We can also feed Natural Balance or Taste of the Wild, as that is what we feed out dogs. Our food is 3 three dollars extra per day.
Feed time is 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Summer schedule We give “bone” breaks for each dog with the owners permission. Cow hocks and bully stix are our bone offerings.
Medications are given free of charge.
Older dogs are given special care and protection and usually love to hang out on our large deck.
We shoot pics of your dogs and email then to you while you are away. The we post them on our website for you to enjoy and share. (Usually on Sat night and weds night)

GPS collars are available at a $10 per day charge. No charge if at our discretion.
to say thank you. Nothing speaks better of our care than your recommendation to friends.
OTHER STUFF: ****If your dog has not been here , then we would like the opportunity to make your dog’s transition to Run Amuck go smoothly. ****We have found that if we pick up the dog and bring him to the farm, they bond with us much quicker and have less worry about “losing” their owner. This is not necessary for all dogs, but works well with the shy or wary type.
Drop off and pick up is per arrangement. Please. We are busy with the dogs during the day. Visits are by appointment only.
Of course visits are welcome, just call. 831-724-6780
We are working out of our home, so we ask that you understand that a late pick-up disrupts the schedule. Any dog picked up before 10:30 am is not charged for that day .Please try to schedule your pick-up before 5 PM. or make arrangements with us if you plan to be late.
We understand life is unpredictable. There is no reservation fee or cancellation penalty. We do fill up and hate to have to say no .
Please let us know if your dog has potty problems in the house. We also need to know if there is any destructive behaviors and aggressive tendencies. No dog is forced to crate, but if your dog is a pup and is destructive in the house, we will not allow your pup to return until he/she learns to crate. We have lost too many shoes,remotes, hats, etc to loose chewing pups …we need to sleep too…We also do not allow dogs who have accidents in the house to sleep uncrated…We have a lovely clean home and try hard to keep it that way.
Grooming is available @ The Dog Tub in Santa Cruz. We will arrange for grooming if you would like.
If your dog is anxious, we may be able to help with that and other training issues. Training is available at additional cost. Available only Oct thru March. Karen Philippi and Dee Hutton can also help with behavior problems. They are right here at Run Amuck.
All clients will be asked to sign a liability waiver and a relocation agreement.
All dogs MUST be spayed or neutered .
VACCINATIONS must be up to date. RABIES, Bordatella and DHPP. Proof of Vacinations are required and no dog will be boarded without proof on file.
We are fully insured and committed to safety.
