Superior, personalised service

Scott is passionate about providing fantastic service to pet dog owners…. going above and beyond to inform, educate and support the dog owner.

Scott's guarantee* assumes fair and reasonable treatment from the dog's owner.


"Scott told us he could fully obedience train Bailey in a week and a half. We didn't believe him of course, but we'd heard several people speak really highly of Scott, so we gave it a go.

"The dog we got back was totally transformed. It was almost like she'd been swapped with another dog. She's just so well behaved now and still is after 2 years – from the moment Scott dropped her off, she would do everything – sit, heel and walk.

"We're so glad we sent Bailey to Scott - I just don't think you could do better."

Dave Mulcahy, Owner of Bailey
