In 2011, the story of Chill Out Dog Training began with Scott and Miko Ross, who welcomed Gus, a bold and powerful German Shepherd Lab mix, into their lives. As Gus grew, so did his boisterous disposition and talent for stirring up trouble, leading to extreme behavior issues like leash reactivity and aggression. Determined to help their beloved companion, Scott and Miko embarked on a journey to find the perfect solution.
The couple tried every training class, redirection method, and training collar that seemed promising, hoping to bring a sense of calm to Gus’s demeanor. However, despite their efforts, nothing seemed to help him “chill out” and overcome his behavioral challenges. Undeterred, Scott and Miko’s devotion to Gus drove them to continue their quest for answers.
It was during this search that they stumbled upon a transformative methodology that emphasized consequences for poor choices and the importance of a more structured lifestyle. These missing components turned out to be the key to shaping Gus into a well-mannered and relaxed dog. Witnessing Gus’s incredible transformation, friends and family were awestruck and couldn’t help but notice the positive changes in him.
As more people witnessed Gus’s progress, they began reaching out to Scott for assistance with their own dogs. While Gus’s behavioral challenges were more extreme than most, the training principles and protocols they applied were universal. Realizing the potential to make a difference in the lives of struggling dog owners and their furry companions, Scott and Miko saw an opportunity to share their newfound expertise with others.
