About Denise

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Camp Run-A-Muck is all about Dogs and having Fun. We care, and we enjoy dogs - especially the little guys. We do not care for quantity, just quality – we prefer the little guys and the gentle big guys and treat all of them as our own.

We start our morning with breakfast, then off for some good, sweet ocean air.

Next stop, Fort Getty (just down the road) for our morning exercise with at least an hour of walking and playing in the park at West Passage. Then, back to the ranch for treats and a little down time.

Mid afternoon and we are off again on another Doggie Adventure. Beavertail Park for another hour or more enjoying the great walking paths full of woodsy and ocean smells.

Then it's back home for Dinner and a walk through the neighborhood before bed time. Now it's time to unwind and relax for the evening.... Sweet Dreams

(Our yard is fenced in - our guests stay in the house not in the garage or outside). Our Vet also does house calls.
Must be house trained. Thank you for
using my services.

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

My pooch had a great time with Denise at Camp Run-a-muck! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
We could not have been happier with Camp Run a Muck and Denise. Hailey came back exhausted and happy. Can't wait to go away again and send Hailey to Camp. Highly recommended.
Denise is a WONDERFUL sitter for our dog. She is extremely flexible and responsive to all types of communication. My dog truly loves to go to her house and drags me to the front door when we get there. When I pick him up, he is happy and totally exhausted. They go on multiple walks and have lots of outside time. She even has small pools for the dogs to play in. I would highly recommend Denise for your dog sitting needs.
Denise did a wonderful job taking care of my dogs. Denise is a very caring person and made sure there were plenty of activities for the dogs. (They probably had more fun at Denise's house than they do at home). If you are looking for a special person to care for your dog, look no further than Denise.
Max had a paw-some two week vacation at Camp Run-a-Muck. He came home fitter, slimmer and exhausted from all the fun activities provided for him. He can hardly wait to go back again!
Camp Run-a-Muck is AMAZING!! I have never boarded or left my pup Holden with anyone I didn't know..EVER-so you can imagine that for my wedding weekend I was extremely nervous about where he was going to stay. They were so flexible with drop off times, and extremely great with easing any of my fears about leaving him. When I finally came to pick him up (they offered a later pick up time so that they could have some more "adventures" with him) he was the happiest I have seen him in a long time!!! It was such a relief! He had made new puppy friends and even gone swimming! They are absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend them to anyone that would like to give their pup a VACAY!! Thank so much!! We will look forward to more play time at Camp Run-a-Muck in the near future!!!
Chewy had a wonderful vacation with Denise again (her second year)! Our little dog had great new adventures, along with the daily walks and excursions, such as swimming and learning how to surf! We would not hesitate to recommend Denise for boarding your special friend - very loving and caring!
Wonderful boarding experience with Denise in Rhode Island. My labradoodle boy was in great hands with Denise and her husband. Each day she took my dog to the beach and on a hike and kept him very active. She has a wonderful house with a fenced yard where the dogs can roam and play. Denise sent me photos and updates while I was gone so I knew how my dog was doing and that he was safe. I highly recommend Denise!
As usual, Denise provided Max with so much more than room and board. Her caring and affection for pets is evident and we know that Max is in good hands when he vacations at Camp Run-A-Muck.
Blaze just can't get enough of Camp Run-A-Mok!
Blaze had a fantastic time, as he did before! He hardly wanted to get in the car at pick up time! Love getting the photo updates, too :) We will book again, soon!
Another fabulous Camp Run a Muck experience for Jessie! He had a blast with Denise and all the dog friends he's made. I love having Jessie stay there!
This was Max's second visit with Denise. He came home relaxed and exhausted from all the fun he had. Denise is a 24/7 doggy "Mom" and gets to know her "pets" well. She is also a wonderful people person and a pleasure to deal with. I heartily endorse her.
My dog came home tired and happy from his visit! I loved that Denise provided photos through the week, since it was my first time leaving Blaze with them, it made me feel much more comfortable through the weekend.
Denise was wonderful and took excellent care of our Wolfie. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again!
Fabulous experience for Jessie! He had a great time and Denise was so helpful and thoughtful. She sent photos, called to let me know how he was doing, making me feel so comfortable. Will do this again week!
I contacted Denise last minute for a doggie day care while we attended the Newport boat show. She was very nice and obviously loved dogs. Fenced in yard. Denise made plenty of time for walks and also took Maggie and the other other dogs out to a field where they could run and play. I also got many photos through out the day.
Denise was a wonderful host. Our puppy came home happy and exercised.
Denise was an incredible host! Max was kept busy and happy. She sent us wonderful pictures of all his activities. When it was time to pick him up, you could tell how comfortable he felt ...he was right at home there and with her. I would not hesitate to have Max visit with Denise again, and plan to do so in the near future.
What a fabulous vacation spot for our 8 year old wheaten terrier. I was not sure of how Rufus would fare with other dogs as he can be difficult with other dogs on leash. I was immediately put at ease on the first visit with Denise. She and her husband are the original dog whisperers! After a week at Camp Run A Muck, Rufus was seeking out other dogs on our walks to befriend!
What a better spot to leave a beloved pet I cannot think of and the frequent texting of photos of Rufus to us was an added benefit.
Many thanks Denise!
Denise was wonderful! Our puppy Lono came home exercised and happy!
Denise did a wonderful job taking care of our little girl. I find her to be a true lover of animals who is caring and very kind. My wife and I are very happy with her watching our dog again whenever the need arises. I will also recommend her to my friends who may be in need of her services.

Great experience. Will definitely send our pet on another vacay with Denise again!
Nobi has a blast every time he stays with Denise and he comes home exhausted! It's great to know he is getting love, tons of attention, and positive dog socialization while I'm away.
My Shih Tzu had a great time! Their home is very warm and loving. Denise has a natural way with dogs, and my overly protective Shih Tzu took to her immediately. Highly recommended!
