Follow Camp K9




Founded in 1985, Camp K9 is owned and operated by Lori and Duncan Campbell. Lori had always loved animals and always imagined she would one day be caring for them. Sure enough, after spending some time training dogs and holding obedience classes in her home, she and Duncan took a chance and purchased what has now become Madison's premier pet boarding facility. Within a year, this small "hobby" for Lori had turned into a business: Camp K9 had become so busy that Lori was having to turn some pet owners away. An addition was built (the building that now houses the Waggin' Tails suites, as a matter of fact!) and by the end of 1987 Duncan had quit his old job to dedicate his time to the new booming business.

Camp K9 continued to grow, and so did the Campbell family. Lori and Duncan welcomed their eldest daughter, Kristyn, who arrived just in time to see the facility's second addition (what has become the Badger Rooms) completed. Another daughter, Meghan, arrived in 1989, and still the expansion continued. By 1997, a third addition had been completed and a doggie day camp had been started.


Today, Camp K9 serves hundreds of pet owners in the Madison area, providing a safe and stimulating environment for pets while their owners are away. Its staff has grown to over 20, with the Campbell daughters helping out as well. Over 32 years later, Lori and Duncan's facility is as popular as ever: not bad for a dream that started with only an old house, a few kennels and a love for animals!

Best of Madison

BEST BEST BEST doggy day care in Madison, HANDS DOWN. It's clean, the staff are friendly and trustworthy. I really wanted to find a place that I could leave my dog while I was at work without having to worry about him... i did not have this luxury until I found Camp K9. The rest of the doggy day care centers in Madison don't compare. My dog loves camp SO much, that I am excited to take him there and don't feel an ounce of guilt leaving him. He always has a great day. Im so grateful! Emily
