Does your pet LOVE Camp?
Review us on


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 31 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

Thank you SO much for taking care of my "babies". You have no idea how much it meant to me and how good it made me feel when you sent the pictures and texts. I also can't thank Kristyn enough for the extra attention she gave to help them feel comfortable. It meant so much to me. Thank you! From the bottom of my heart.

We are planning a trip to Florida in Feb. so the pack will be back then. :)

Sincerely, Karina
