Working with Scott and K-911 Dog Training has changed my life with my dogs. Before meeting Scott, I was so worried I was doing the wrong thing, especially with one of my dogs who was having some behavioral issues. I felt alone, scared and at a loss. Scott was the best ally I could have found. He not only helped my dog increase his confidence but has consistently cheered me on as a dog parent and increased my confidence as well. He cares a tremendous amount about dogs and their humans and is very thoughtful and kind in his approach. That, along with 15 years of experience and a desire to stay current with animal behavior studies, makes him the absolute best trainer out there. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dogs.Dec 28, 2018
Prompt, friendly, informative response and ongoing communication. He's a joy to work with - and our dog loves the training sessions! We're learning (dog and humans!) so much from Scott. It's obvious he loves dogs, and has found his calling (!). Highly recommended.May 12, 2017Verified
Scott was great. We saw significant progress with our very difficult 10 yo pup after a single week. Looking forward to the next session.Dec 17, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Most importantly, clients should be informed that uncertified trainers, of which there are many, charge similar or larger fees for services which sound similar but actually involve punishment based methods which can cause current problematic behaviors, or the fears causing the behaviors, to become more intense, increasing not only stress on their dog but also their own legal liability. My fee includes the training consultation or board & train using positive methods, along with a detailed write-up with training plans geared towards continued progress. All board and trains include one free 1-2 hour transitional training session. All B&Ts, training sessions and behavior consultations include continued access to me for free follow-up questions via email, text, or phone.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Before any training begins, I ask that the guardian fill out a standard questionnaire form so that I can best meet their needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?10 years of experience at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley including years of experience as a Training and Behavior Consultant in the Training Center. I have a certification in training and consulting through the Jean Donaldson Academy for Dog Trainers. This academy is designed to be a two year program which not only provides instruction in basic manners training but also provides an intense focus on the most current behavior modification techniques, with regular testing and guidance from an accredited animal behaviorist.
