What's in a Name?
Scotch Pines Dog Training was established on Scotch Pines Road in Payette Idaho in 1993 by Will and Vivian Stoppel.
Scotch Pines is now owned by their daughter April Stoppel Jantz as a full-time career and is the largest dog training school in Idaho, and one of the largest in the nation.
We enjoy tremendous support from veterinarians, law enforcement officials, and humane societies throughout Idaho.
Over the years we've been privileged to work with thousands of dogs of all breeds-- huge dogs, aggressive dogs, sensitive dogs, rambunctious dogs, timid dogs, petrified dogs, abused dogs, young dogs and old dogs. We love them all and we welcome the chance to work with you and your special dog soon!
For the past 20 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. We've expanded our dog training services online as well! Now we can work with you and your dog anywhere you live!
