Adam and Susanna Campbell have been in the dog care profession since 1995. They have been featured in Life Magazine and on the local Fox News and ABC News and consistently Voted Top Dog Training Business by Washingtonian Magazine.
In the Spring of 2001, Adam and Susanna made the decision to leave their positions as head trainers at a prestigious Washington DC area dog training school in order to pursue their dream. The result was Campbell’s Canine Camp, a personal dog training and dog boarding business, nestled in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia’s rolling hills, close to Washington DC. After 25 years of successfully training thousands of dogs in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area, we have relocated to Central Florida. We continue to demonstrate to dog lovers the joy that can be derived from a solid relationship between dog and human.
When people hire Adam and Susanna Campbell to train their dog, they like what they see. This husband and wife team loves animals, all animals, and it shows in the caring, but confident way they work with their clients’ dogs.
They believe that any dog, once it knows what’s expected of it, loves to learn to do its “job”, whether it’s behaving well on walks, or greeting visitors gently. Dog training, for them, is more about building a working relationship between dog and its owner than it is following a strict program.
What makes the Campbells noteworthy, however, is their skill at diagnosing the specific needs of each animal and human. They don’t use a “one size fits all” style in their work. Some dogs need to be nurtured, encouraged every step of the way, while others only work best when pushed, and Adam and Susanna have developed a professional’s understanding of what’s best for each dog.
Growing up in opposite ends of the country (Adam, New York, Susanna, Florida) both halves of this gifted couple started caring for animals early in their lives. Adam worked in a kennel, Susanna ran a dog walking service. These were good, humble starting points for lifetimes that have been dedicated to the understanding of dogs and their people.
I just wanted to express my gratitude for training my third Giant Schnauzer. Bear is a completely different dog now. Your training still let him be his confident self and retain his sweet disposition. When I decided I was going to get another puppy, you two were the first people I thought of. My sincerest appreciation for once again giving me a well trained dog.

I can not express enough gratitude for what you have done for our dog and our family. She learned to walk on the leash and was trained with a remote collar. The remote collar has been a wonderful tool for our very headstrong, smart dog. One of the best things about all of this, is that Winnie is still the fun loving, mischievous, silly heart of a dog that she was before training - she just listens now to commands.
