 Campbell's Canine Camp
Professional Dog Obedience Training Since 1995

A Unique In-Home Dog Training and Boarding Experience for Your Dog.

Our Training Approach:

People often misunderstand dog training. Teaching basic dog obedience commands such as sit, down and come are great first steps, but do not insure that the dog will progress enough to be consistent when you need them to respond or when the dog is distracted. When a dog obedience training foundation is properly secured, a puppy or young dog learns how to respond consistently right from the beginning. Properly trained, your dog doesn't have to go back and learn what a command really means. If you teach the dog the right way the first time, you don't have to reteach in the future.

Adam and Susanna Campbell are the founders of Campbell's Canine Camp, a professional dog training and dog boarding business. They offer Dog Obedience Training, On Leash and Off Leash Dog Training Camps, E-Collar Camp, Dog Boarding, Puppy Training, Behavior Modification and a shuttle service for your convenience.

We can help you bring out the well trained, loving dog you have always wanted. We take the time to gain each dog's trust which helps us achieve much stronger training results. Our dog training and boarding area is a stress free and comfortable environment. This allows your dog to enjoy and focus on their training. Like people, every dog's personality is different and we need to tailor our training approach accordingly.

We have dedicated our lives to helping families and busy professionals improve their relationship with their canine companions. We have saved many dog's lives due to behavior and aggression problems their owners were unable to control. Our dog training programs are proven to provide what you are looking for: Results! We help to give you a loving and obedient companion and a relationship with your dog that lasts a lifetime.

Dog training is about teaching a dog how to be a willing follower: If your dog determines that you are a clear pack leader, they will look to you for guidance and want to earn your praise. Dogs are often confused about their place in the pack and become very selective with their responses to simple tasks. By being consistent with reinforcement of commands, you will clarify your pack leader role. A dog can learn to avoid unwanted behaviors and respond quickly to more desired ones.

We often hear, my dog knows sit, down and stay, but won't do it without a treat or when I need him to.

Most dogs and their behavior patterns can be improved upon. Virtually any dog can be worked with through the use of dog obedience training. There are many approaches available to dog training. We have found that our Dog Training Camps are the most successful method towards successfully improving a dog's behavior. Our Dog Training Camps allow you to build and improve upon the dog training foundation that your dog receives. Reinforcement of the dog training commands is easier to teach after a dog training camp, as compared to teaching your dog on your own. Giving your dog commands that he already knows is easier than the typical private lessons where the commands are shown to you and you teach and practice with your dog on your own.

Your relationship with your dog needs to clearly define that YOU are the pack leader. Campbell's Canine Camp will show you how to establish this relationship with your dog that will last a lifetime.

Hours of Operation for Inquiries:

Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Sunday.

By Appointment Only

  After a Dog Training Camp, the dog owner's job is to reinforce obedience commands that the dog now understands.

Dog Training Camps also called dog boot camps or Board and Train by some dog trainers.The training/boarding approach allows us to gain a strong relationship with your dog, making the training process easier. Owners will not need to worry about making arrangements for transportation to and from daily training classes. Dog Training Camps or Board and Train can even take place while owners are on vacation or on a business trip.

Campbell's Canine Camp is not limited to the Washington DC metro area and we have helped dog owners from South Carolina, North Carolina, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and more. Dog Training Camps are different from private lessons. Instead of driving back and forth to numerous short lessons, you just have to drop your dog off for the dog camp and pick your dog up at the end of the dog training camp. Camps are much more successful than group or private lessons. Our in-home facility allows us to provide a familiar and comfortable environment for your dog. This also enables us the time to gain a strong bond and long lasting relationship with your dog. Please call or email today for more information on our Dog Training Camps or Dog Boot Camps.

 Dog Boarding

There is nothing worse than going on a trip and worrying or feeling guilty about where your dog is staying. We are a small kennel so we are able to house the dogs in our home, spend more time with each dog, giving them the love and individual attention they deserve. Your vacation becomes a fun time for them as well. Rather than a large indoor/outdoor kennel of barking dogs that can leave your animal upset and unsettled for weeks after your trip, at Campbell's Canine Camp, we are able to offer your dog a stress-free stay. We offer a quiet, calm and comfortable environment since we only accept a limited amount of dogs. We encourage graduates of our dog training camps to continue using our dog boarding service. We also will accept other well behaved house dogs who have been boarded before and are not anxious or destructive. Each dog has its own space and will go out frequently to play and sniff in our 3 secure, fenced in yards. We not only visit with our boarders frequently but are around 24/7 and can respond quickly to any needs that arise.

We also offer our dog obedience training graduates the opportunity to do a refresher course while boarding to reinforce existing training or work through new problems. Please visit our Dog Training Camps page to read about our 1 week Refresher Dog Training Camp.

At Campbell's Canine Camp, dog boarding is not just worry free boarding for you, it is a wonderful experience for your dog. We urge you to visit our Dog Boarding page to read more about our dog boarding service and also read our testimonials to see what our clients say about our dog training and dog boarding services. For your convenience, we also offer a shuttle service for a small fee to help with your commute.

"...I have now been a dog person for 10 years....
or at least a Campbell dog-trained person. The Campbells have trained both my Bull Mastiffs and I have to say as I walk my dogs through Rock Creek Park, Lafayette Square or Logan Circle my dogs are the calmest, friendliest and best behaved..."
