Our 18 month old Enzo the great pyrenees can’t believe his luck; he gets to vacation at the dog park! We were greeted by a friendly group of curious dogs at the gate at Run Amuck. Enzo took a few minutes for the doggy “handshakes,” then found Arthur who likes to run and happily took off in a game of chase. It was such a relief knowing that our big goof would be safe and happy while we were out of town. The yard and house is large, clean and the kind of place I would want to stay if I were a dog. The people of Run Amuck genuinely enjoy their work and know their way around dogs. Many thanks to Marilyn, Bob, Adrien, Kira and whoever else cared for our boy. He spent a day “recharging his batteries” when we returned; tired and glad to be home. I’m sure he’ll be back to Run Amuck the next time we head out of town. If your dog is well-socialized and likes other dogs, you cannot find a better spot for him than Run Amuck.
Our dog, Agatha, had such a fun time over the week that she spent here that she suffered depression for three days after we brought her home and separated her from her boyfriend Jack. Run Amuck is such a caring place that we’ve gone out and scheduled new vacations just so Agatha could come down and visit for a while. The peace of mind that comes from knowing that our pet is well cared for adds a great deal to our enjoyment of traveling. Agatha just loved to run around and play with her new doggie friends (and people, too). It’s a great place and we’ll be back!
We love AGATHA!
Seems like all I talk about anymore…Camp Run Amuck. THE place for dogs. I am so impressed by the secure, clean environment and devoted people there.
I had never in my life boarded a dog before leaving my 2 1/2 year old yellow lab for two weeks with Marilyn et. al. My worries were totally unfounded. She received all of the love and attention she is used to at home plus the added bonus of having other dogs to play with and huge bones on which to gnaw.
We will be back!
The only place our Nikki and Zeus will ever go. Just as the name says…no cages. Marilyn and Bob make it home away from home. Marilyn is spot on when dealing with dogs’ personalities and always gives sound advice. She provides the love and attention that our Dobermans are so accustomed to at home. They are always so happy to visit and Marilyn’s care gives us peace of mind. Glad we found you Marilyn!
Happiest place on earth for dogs! My very active Vizsla, Tasha, returns from her stays at Marilyn’s by happily kissing me all over the face and promptly laying down to sleep for an entire day. Tasha would not be happy at a “normal” kennel as she is extremely active and very social. Run Amuck Farm is the perfect setting for her giving her plenty of space to run around in and always other dogs to run around with. Tasha loves Marilyn — jumps right into her car when she comes to pick her up — and I love Marilyn because it makes me feel good that my dog is so lovingly well cared for and happy when she is with her. I highly recommend Run Amuck Farm, it is hands down the best place you will ever take your dog and once your dog has gone once, the only place you’ll ever take your dog.
Our greyhound, Kealan, starts getting excited to see Run Amuk Farm when we are a good 10 minutes away. She has a blast. She runs, plays with other dogs, sleeps on everyone’s bed including her own, and doesn’t want to leave when the time comes! I cannot imagine my good luck when I met Marilyn, who gave me her card. She has accommodated special needs such as food and medication when it was needed. Marilyn’s understanding of dogs and her control of dogs is amazing. There is NO better place for any dog. The yard is huge, dedicated to the dogs, and safe. It is a doggy heaven.
We love Marilyn and Bob! Our boxer, Bruin, is a frequent visitor. Marilyn has been amazingly helpful with trying to put weight on our very active “puppy”. I really feel like they know my dog, and truly enjoy having him. They know his personality and have plenty of stories when I get him back. It’s an ideal spot for him, as he’s very active, and always has someone to play with on the “farm”. He seems happy with Marilyn. She makes me feel confident that he will be well-cared for in our absence. When Bruin got stung by a bee, and developed hives, they knew how to treat him. Marilyn also has a wonderful sense of humor, and is a delight. They know dogs very well, and care for a variety of different dog personalities, making them all feel at home. They truly seem to love all the animals. This is not your typical boarding facility – this is a special place.
We were very fortunate to learn about marilyn and bob just at the start of a major home remodel project. Our four mastiffs have had the privilege of rotating between our home and marilyn’s for months now. At marilyn’s they enjoy space, gardens, ever-present people, water features, a variety of interesting animals, and other canines. When we need assistance moving the dogs, Marilyn is there. If a dog needs medical attention, marilyn is there. If someone is lonely and just needs some love, Marilyn is there. Marilyn’s assessment of canine social situations is shrewd, cautious and accurate. Her home is organized to allow separation of animals who would be more comfortable separated or with specific friends.
Finding appropriate boarding facilities in the bay area for our large dogs was something we’d given up on. Marilyn has changed all that. Now we can plan travel without concern for the canine half of our family!
Thank you to all my clients who said such nice things. Huey has been coming for over four years now. We fall in love with these dogs and we get to watch them age. We are always willing to care for these friends , even if they need extra care,as many senior dogs do.
It is a sacred trust we take to our hearts. Thanks to all who took the time to read this and thanks to those who post. MUCH OBLIGED, marilyn,bob and destiny
We’ve been bringing our dogs to Marilyn’s and Bob’s “farm” for a couple years. Our English Mastiff, Huey, is a regular now and he goes without complaint and comes home happy. Marilyn is a hoot to work with and Bob is a real stand-up gentleman. Their home and the grounds are ideal in terms of a dog-friendly environment. We have been very happy with the care our beasts have received and intend to keep Camp Run Amuck on Huey’s vacation schedule. We would be more than happy to speak to prospective clients about anything.
I had never boarded my 5 year old boxer Hoku until I found Run Amuck. My vision of dog boarding was cement and chain link fences and could never leave my girl in a place like that. A chance meeting with Marilyn changed that. Hoku is always so excited to get there and always exhausted when we leave. She runs and plays all day and sleeps on a pillow at night… Just like home.
I am in love with Camp Run Amuck and more importantly – my bearded collie Alfie is too. Alfie has stayed with Marilyn and Bob on several occasions. It was important to me to know that he would be safe and secure, but have freedom to run and play. Run Amuck is all of this plus the untangible of Marilyn and Bob’s love. He can run and play all day. They even have goats! Alfie could and possibly has watched the goats all day! Goat TV. This is priceless for a bearded collie! Alfie comes home each time incredibly happy and I think he misses Run Amuck more than he misses me! I completely recommend Run Amuck for short or long stays. Your dog will truly be treated like one of the family and quite possibly have the time or his or her life.
Run Amuck Farm is a monitored, safe, cage free farm where our American Bulldog “Arcata da Bull” has enjoyed the privilege of overnight boarding and middle of the week “doggy day care”, training, and socialization. He begins “crying” with excitement as our car heads south on Hwy 1 because he knows he is headed to Run Amuck to play with his best friend Benny and the “guests” of the week. Marilyn and Destiny have helped him learn socialization skills and he is well known on Harbor Beach and Seabright for his relaxed demeanor with people, children and other dogs, large and small. We highly recommend Run Amuck Farm as a “happy place” for your beloved pet while you are away on business or pleasure.
