Virtually training is best suited for the dog owner with a "do it yourself" attitude, but would like some expert guidance to kickstart their training. A Chill Out Dog Trainer will work with you to troubleshoot the challenging behaviors, assess effective tools and techniques to implement and create an action plan for you to put in place the same day.
Owner & Lead Trainer
Scott Ross is the owner of Chill Out Dog Training and a certified trainer (CPDT-KA) with the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers. With over 4 years of hands-on training experience, he has worked with owners and their dogs to address an array of behavior challenges.
Troy Kaplan is a veteran from Denver, Colorado who got his start in dog training through the working world of police, military, and personal protection. Since then he has been working with pets striving to develop a strong relationship between Dogs and their owners, based on clear communication and respect for both parties. Every dog is an individual and every problem is different, as someone who loves both dogs and solving problems he couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Troy excels in professional obedience, leash reactivity, and house manners. He loves working with high energy, rambunctious, pups and dogs who need to learn how to relax a little. In his spare time Troy enjoys spending time with his dog Yuki, playing the piano, or exploring the mountains.
Hands down, reaching out to Scott for one-on-one training was the best decision and investment I could have ever made for my dog. I adopted Oliver (a 3 year old pitbull mix) from a shelter in July 2020. I quickly found out that he was highly reactive around other dogs and had zero leash training. He is highly excitable, anxious, and very strong willed; which makes him a lot of fun to be around but tough to rein in! I tried to work with him on my own, but things were just getting worse. Scott quickly responded to my interest in his training, and we were able to set up our first appointment within days. Scott, and his assistant Troy, had Oliver walking with a slacked leash by the end of our very first session. I was blown away by his progress in such a short time. And after just a few more sessions, Oliver has had successful interactions with other dogs and is harnessing in his energy for successful, stress free walks. He no longer lunges and pulls on his leash, and he even responds to commands while we enjoy our walks. His (and my!) life has literally changed for the better. Scott and Troy are patient, calm, and logical when it comes to working with and analyzing dog behavior. They were able to get to the root of the cause, and all of their advice was purposeful. They made sure that I understood what to do to help Oliver have continued success when the sessions were over. They gave me the tools to set him up for a much more relaxed and happy life. I cannot recommend or thank them enough!
Scott is attentive, friendly, patient, articulate, and very encouraging! He communicates the dog’s behavior and the psychology behind it. My border collie, Archie, would have me sprinting down the sidewalk when he would spot rabbits and squirrels. Now, he stops in place, remains calm and focused, while still remaining alert to my commands. Now I have the ability to control whether or not we approach the animals. If we do, we slowly walk towards them without Archie pulling. Training on my own before Scott was difficult because Archie would ignore me even with a tasty treat in my hand when animals were around. Now we know how to approach the situation and I can command, ‘let’s go’ and he will cooperatively come! We can now take what we learned and apply it to other areas for improvement! Scott is always responsive and available for follow up questions. Archie has truly ‘chilled out’! Thank you!
