Owner 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

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.
