The Scotch Pines Method: Empowering you to build the best relationship with your dog
Scotch Pines Dog Training was established in 1993 and is the largest dog training school in Idaho. For the past 19 years, Scotch Pines has grown from a hometown program started in the Boise area to two additional franchises that cover the Magic Valley and SouthEast Idaho.
To become part of this franchise, I was an apprentice under April Jantz for two years and began my franchise in 2015.
Everything we do at Scotch Pines is designed to take you through our unique dog training method:
- Understand Commitment & Structures for Success
- Teach Behaviors & Expectations to Your Dog
- Use Healthy Correction & Praise
- How to Move Forward with More Freedom for You & Your Dog
- The Ultimate Goal Off-Leash
Regardless of the program you work with us in, we will bring you what you need to know at each stage of this method. However, some of our more foundational courses, like puppy manners, will not take you through the entire method because your dog needs to be at least five months old to go through our obedience training programs or courses.
Overall, you can count on us to work with you and your dog so that you will learn how to train your dog because at the end of the day, your dog will need to listen and trust you.
Our Mission & Vision
Scotch Pines Dog Training exists to give you the training tools and resources to empower you to take better care of your dogs.
Throughout our training, deeper relationships and bonds with your dog will be created, giving you the relationship you have always envisioned with your dog.
We know that when your dog is happy, you are happy. By helping as many people as possible know how to take care of and train their dogs, we give dog owners more time to focus on enjoying their dogs instead of feeling frustrated and at the end of their rope.
