(Board and Train)
Dog Training Camps are also referred to as Dog Boot Camps or Board and Train. We offer a unique training option since your dog will reside at our home. We have a designated kennel room for our training and boarding dogs. It is a quiet and comfortable training and boarding environment. We will keep your dog on a consistent and predictable schedule. This helps make your dog's training and boarding experience a positive and stress free one. This helps immensely with the dog training process. Adam Campbell, an experienced and professional dog trainer since 1995, will train your dog for you. We focus on teaching your dog how to willingly follow a lead. Your dog will be trained to respond consistently to basic control commands. At the end of the dog training camp, you will receive a private training session from Adam. This will allow you to reinforce your dog's training once he/she gets back home. He will show you how to continue the training process. You will be given instructions on how to implement your dog's training into your everyday activities. This will help you to develop a good working relationship with your dog which allows you to become your dog's pack leader which is the key to success. Our training approach allows you to communicate better with your dog and to teach him/her to look to you for guidance and to follow directions. Please review our Dog Training Camps descriptions below and please call or email for more information. Feel free to look at our Referrals page to see what other satisfied clients are saying about our unique in-home training camp programs.

 Who says dog obedience training can't be fun?


"My wife and I still can't believe the amazing transformation of our Australian Cattle dog (Bella). Our vet and other trainers told us there was little hope for Bella because she was a two year old herding dog, therefore she would be set in her "independent" ways. Bella is a brand new dog now after only two weeks of your camp. No more nipping and she is unbelievablely obedient. The best part is she actually seems to enjoy following our commands. Thank you so much Adam and Susanna!"

- Jeff and Marissa Z. of McLean, Virginia

"Where is my dog? The dog you returned to me cannot be the same dog. This dog walks by my side when on a leash; he sits and stays on command. He no longer jumps on people or furniture. He does not even get car sick like my dog..."

 "You guys really have changed our lives! Since I picked him up, Murphy has been able to participate with the family all the time instead of being crated for a lot of the day. My parents came over and Murphy was calm and very well behaved around my mother, who has rheumatoid arthritis and is a bit frail. He usually has to be crated while she is here because he gets overly excited. I don't know if Adam told you, but my daughter has special needs and Murphy is typically very gentle around her but super excited because he loves her so much so it's been hard for them to interact. It is such a huge change that Shiloh was able to give him a goodnight kiss without being slobbered or jumped on. Adam's training session was perfect. He helped me so much. You guys have changed our lives at home and I am so thankful!"

Again, thank you so much!

Dog Training with leash


For puppies 6 months of age and up

While attending our Two Week Dog Training Camp your dog will learn basic commands such as Heel at your side, Loose leash/free walking without pulling, Auto-Sit, Sit-stay, Down-stay, and Come when called plus Greeting properly/No jumping. This dog training course helps your dog to learn to focus and how to have more self control. Dogs are worked numerous times throughout the day and also receive lots of exercise and personal attention. A private dog training lesson is scheduled at the end of the two week camp to show you how to reinforce the commands your dog has learned while at camp. All of your questions will be answered in the lesson and you will be instructed on how to continue the training at home to ensure a positive outcome. Our two week dog training camp includes 14 days of boarding and training, dog training equipment, and private lesson for the owner. Follow up for the owner comes with all of our dog training camps. Follow up refers to continued guidance after the camp is over through phone contact, email or an additional private lesson to ensure positive results.

For Dogs 9 months of age and up

Our Three Week E-Collar Training Camp or Board and Train focuses on all the issues the two week camp does, but takes it to the next level. Off leash. Often an E-Collar also known as a Remote Collar is necessary to obtain a more reliable off leash response. This dog training course can also help to control off leash issues such as coming when called and over reactive greetings at the front door. It will also address nuisance behaviors such as barking, digging, counter surfing, fence fighting, chasing cats and any other issues you might be having. Our E-Collar training can also dramatically improve leash aggression. This E- Collar Advanced Off Leash Dog Tarining course will allow an owner to have far more control over their dog without a leash inside your house as well as outside. A private dog training lesson is scheduled at the end of our Three week E-Collar Dog Training Camp. During your private training session you will be instructed on how to reinforce and build upon all of the commands your dog learned. Our 3 week E-Collar Dog Training Camp includes 21 days of boarding and training, private lesson for the owner, and a Dogtra remote training collar. Follow up for the owner comes with all dog training camps. Follow up refers to continued guidance after the camp is over through phone contact, email or an additional private lesson to ensure positive results.

The E-Collar, also called Remote Collar, is not for every dog. Please call or email us to determine whether your dog is a good candidate for this dog obedience training course.


Some of our "Trainees" in the E-Collar Camp Area


Adam Campbell has been successfully training dogs on an E-collar for over 20 years. E-Collars also known as Remote Collars have advanced dramatically. Adam will teach your dog to understand the E-Collar which makes the E-Collar a very useful training aid. This training method will fast track your dog's ability to work in off leash situations. All dogs are different and results vary, but the E-collar is the most effective way to achieve your desired results. We highly recommend that you get your dog professionally trained instead of using one on your own to ensure positive results. Also, check out our Reviews on our Referrals Page.


Our One Week Dog Training Refresher Camp is for camp graduates who wish for follow up training or who want their dog to attend while he/she is boarding with us.

Our One Week Refresher Training Camp includes 7 days of boarding and training plus an optional private lesson.

" Winnie is pure joy to have. One of the best things about all of this, is that Winnie is still the fun loving, and silly heart of a dog that she was before training - she just listens now to commands. "


- Pat and Cheryl M.

 Dear Adam and Susanna,

I thought you might like some pictures of the freedom you have brought our poodle, Jake. The picture of the far away dog in the woods is of him! And the reason he can be off-leash is the Dogtra E-collar remote training you provided him!

When Jake came to you, he was an exuberant, impulsive, energetic 15-month-old Standard Poodle puppy in need of some serious help! He jumped on people, mouthed with fervor, and ate/stole everything he could find! After participating and responding to months of traditional treat-based “positive” training, Jake did quite well when the treat being offered to him was more exciting than the behavior he really wanted to exhibit. However, if the “prize” (squirrel, visitor at the door, etc) was more enticing, we had no control!

The remote training was just what Jake needed. We were so apprehensive at first, and you were kind to field each of our questions in our several phone calls leading up to the training. We were glad to know that we can send a vibration to the collar as a warning to Jake that he needs to listen, and that if he chooses not to heed that warning, we can then deliver a mild “shock” to him. We are also glad to know that we can control the amount of shock he gets, determined by his distraction level. We have used the collar ourselves to test it, and it’s nothing more than the equivalent of a very mild carpet “shock” from static electricity.

Having Jake gone for three weeks was difficult for us, but apparently not for him! We appreciated that you got him acclimated and started on the commands without the collar first. When you deemed him ready, you introduced the collar in vibrate mode only, and were very careful to get him comfortable with this. Only when he was ready did you introduce the shock component. We loved the updates you sent us along the way.

When I came for my lesson at the end of three weeks, I expected him to happily charge at me when he saw me. While he was still the happy, affectionate, enthusiastic dog I had left, he was incredibly calm, with a huge doggie smile! He listened beautifully to your commands, and the training you gave me transferred just fine. I was truly surprised at how happy and calm he was! The few times we had previously boarded him at a kennel, he would be exhausted for days, as if he hadn’t slept a wink. At your place, Jake was perfectly happy! He had obviously slept and eaten well, and benefitted from the positive, consistent, nurturing, calm yet assertive attention you gave him. The fact that he could play with your dogs while he was there was icing on the doggie cake!

Now that it’s been almost six months since Jake’s training, I thought you’d like to know how he is doing. In short, this collar has probably saved his life! We currently have an ongoing three-month renovation in our house. Jake is the type of dog to eat EVERYTHING: drywall, sponges, nails, cement, splintery wood, gloves…and as you can imagine, there has been no shortage of items for him to attempt to steal and eat around here! Fortunately for all of us, when Jake is wearing his collar, we can stop him in his tracks and get him to relinquish his stolen items. This would be impossible without the remote collar!

The collar has also improved his quality of life. His favorite thing to do is to run in the woods with me. He is such an athletic, energetic dog that jogging or walking on a leash has little obvious physical benefit to him. But when I can take him off-leash, you can’t imagine what this dog does! He must run for miles for every one that I cover! He races up hills, down hills, chases squirrels, frolics in streams…words cannot describe his exuberance! In these woods, he would also be thrilled to chase a deer for miles, jump on children and elderly bird watchers, and wrestle with every dog he comes in contact with. HOWEVER, with the Dogtra collar, I can page him up to ½ mile away, he comes immediately, and sits at attention for me to put his leash on if there are distractions approaching. PRICELESS!

Now, is Jake the perfect dog? Absolutely not. He is still an exuberant, energetic, young dog. However, he is less impulsive than he had been, and with continued time and reinforcement, I can only imagine he will continue to mature.

Do we use his collar daily? Not anymore, to be honest. (He does not need to wear his outdoor electric fence collar either – I understand all dogs are different in this respect). He walks on the leash beautifully now (as opposed to his dragging me down the street prior to training), and listens well in the house. If we have visitors to the house or want to take him somewhere off-leash, we do still use the collar, to help him remember his manners.

THANK YOU, Adam and Susanna, for helping Jake and our family!
