K9aholics Dog Training

Cam the owner and trainer of K9aholics.Hey! My name is Cam and I am the owner of K9aholics. I am from Portsmouth, VA and graduated from Old Dominion University. I am a former Division 1 running back for ODU and Norfolk Police Officer. My love and passion for dogs started at an early age, but I really got into working dogs when I purchased my first Belgian Malinois, Draco. Shortly after, I attended Tarheel School for dog trainers and completed the Police K9 Instructor’s course. This is where I truly learned how to become a competent decoy, in addition to tracking and detection work. Now I am a PSA (Protection Sports Association) certified decoy and often travel to participate in competitions and trials. In 2022 I successfully titled Draco in PSA-PDC and I am continuing to train Draco and my other personal dogs to further compete. In 2023 I was selected as an East- Coast Regional decoy. I am also a co-instructor under well-known trainer and former Baltimore police K9 handler, Shawn Edwards, at his decoy seminars. In my spare time I enjoy jiu jitsu, fishing, and horseback riding.

trainer2Hi! My name is Brandon. I received my Master Obedience dog training certificate from Tarheel Canine and I now work as a professional dog trainer at K9aholics. I have loved dogs since I was young, enjoying the journey of learning to speak their language and working to understand each other. It was only a matter of time before I discovered my passion for dog training. People often speak about their hobbies in addition to their job, but I am fortunate to say that what started out as just a hobby for me became my career, and I can’t imagine my days not looking down and seeing a dog ready to learn and share an understanding with me.

jamarMy name is Jamar A. Lamb, I am 26 years old and from the Hampton roads, Virginia. I have recently separated from the United States Navy where I served 5 years as a Hospital Corpsman finishing out my time with 3rd battalion 4th Marine Division in 29 Palms, Ca. In my off time I enjoy Grilling, family time and fishing. I’ve chosen this path to train dogs because of my love for animals and to be involved in the sport dog world.
