About Cindy

Cindy Scott is a certified master trainer, behavior consultant, author, AND mom.

She founded Dogs Etc. Dog Training in 1997 with the simple mission – to enrich dogs’ lives.

But it really started way back in 1989 when she lost one of the loves of her life – her little cockapoo Pepper who was killed by a car.

Heartbroken, she tried to make sense of why the conventional training she had done failed her. A psychology major at the time she was studying operant and classical conditioning. Why was this not applied in dog training instead of punishment training?

It then became her mission – ok obsession – to share these more effective, easier and funner training techniques with all dogs and their owners. Her dedication to training dogs is my way of honoring her beloved Pepper. Every dog that she helps is a tribute to her.

Using only positive, reward-based training techniques that are based on scientific learning theory you can easily and effectively modify any behavior. Using these techniques makes training both fun and effective.

What people are saying -

“"Cindy is very attentive and kind. She is extremely knowledgeable and flexible. She takes time to get to know the dogs and their owners and is happy to give individual advice and suggestions to all. She always has the dog’s and owner’s best interest in mind and works hard to help everyone have a positive relationship with their dogs." ”

“"You taught us the value of games with them. Teaching them that I'm the pack leader and nothing is free; eg, they have to sit, shake, etc, for food, treats or whatever. It was a game-changer! "”

“"Ms. Cindy is what you would call a legit dog trainer....well I guess mostly a human trainer! I found her online amongst about 6 other trainers and chose her due to her experience and location to my house. I had her come the first time for an in home private session and she gave us some really good advice and things to do to help with our issues. After realizing what she said worked well, I decided I needed more coaching, and put my puppy into her group puppy class and WOW did that make a difference. My Koda really learned socialization which is super important and loved meeting the other puppies. I got a second second puppy about 6 months later and I knew I needed to get him into her class so he could get the same experience. Cindy is very patient and definitely has something that dogs gravitate toward(not just for her treats). I'll be going to more classes as my pups progress through their lives and will ultimately get one of them certified as a therapy dog. I highly recommend Dogs, Etc. whether it's a private lesson or group classes. Your money will not be wasted! " ”

“"Thank you, thank you, thank you."”
