April Stoppel Jantz
Owner, trainer, and dog behaviorist
of Scotch Pines, April Stoppel Jantz trained her first dog at the age of 11. Her hands-on education with dogs grew over
the years as she helped her parents in the dog training business. In 2004 she had the opportunity to buy the training portion
of the business from her parents and is now the full-time trainer and behaviorist for Scotch Pines Dog Training. If you have
questions that are not covered on this site (check our "contact us" page) you can contact April directly at email@example.com
Or by phone/text
and Vivian Stoppel
Will and Vivian Stoppel founded Scotch Pines Dog Training and
Boarding in Payette, Idaho, in 1993. Scotch Pines grew into the largest dog training business in Idaho, serving thousands
of dogs and their owners throughout the Treasure Valley and beyond. The Stoppels sold the dog training portion of
their business to their daughter, April, in 2004.
In 2013 they made the decision to sell the boarding kennel and move to sunny
Arizona! In 2016 they were forced to repossess the boarding kennel. Although we as a family enjoyed many many years of caring
for your dogs, the decision was made to permanently retire Scotch Pines Doggy Camp.
