Owner and Head Trainer:
Carla started Country Club Kennels in 1996. She found herself in a position, like many people do, where she was in need of a good boarding kennel to care for her dogs when she traveled. After visiting and researching several kennels she was unable to find a kennel where she felt comfortable leaving her beloved four-legged, family members. It was at this point that she decided she would open and operate a different type of boarding kennel. Her goal was to have a boarding/training kennel where dogs could actually enjoy their time away from home, feel safe and loved and would pull their owners to the front door for their next arrival. She opened Country Club Kennels in Catlett, Virginia in the beautiful countryside. The kennels are located in a peaceful, stress free environment and the dogs are treated as though they were our own. Most kennels charge extra for a dog to be taken outside for a bathroom break or exercise. Carla could never comprehend or accept how a kennel attendant could walk down the aisle and take out one dog but not another. Dogs don't understand finances and she felt it would be extremely stressful for the dog who was being passed by. Since 1996 Carla and Country Club Kennels staff have acquired quite a devoted following and have a reputation for running a first class operation where customers can leave their dogs and enjoy their travels without worrying about their precious pets. The majority of our customers travel an hour or more to have their dog(s) board with us and state that they happily do so because they trust us to do all we can to ensure that their dog(s) have a great time, stay safe and come home happy! Carla is also a well known trainer around the Northern Virginia Area. She has helped many dogs over come issues that other trainers had either given up on or turned away. She provides a fun and positive way for your dog(s) to learn basic commands, improve their social skills and become a polite family member. Carla is also the Founder of The Chance Foundation (an all breed, dog rescue) and has been rescuing, rehabilitating, financing, and finding forever homes for dogs in need since 2000. She has dedicated her life to dogs and truly understands what it takes to keep them happy and healthy. After 20 years of running a business, many people would be thinking of retiring. Carla loves what she does, couldn't imagine doing anything else, and plans to continue providing this desperately needed service for a very long time.

The staff are comfortable with all breeds and have the knowledge and experience to know how to help a dog adjust to a new environment where they will feel safe. A few of the staff also assist Carla with training client's dogs as well while boarding with us.
