We absolutely LOVE Pup Scouts.
Both of our dogs go to classes at Pup Scouts and we (and our dogs) just couldn't be any happier. Our new rescue dog started out in the Good Pup class and has now moved onto the Canine Good Citizen Workshop. Our 5 year old lab has been attending flyball classes for a couple of months. We're even trying day camp for the first day today.
Our dogs know whenever we're getting close to Pup Scouts and start whining and barking in excitement. Jane Kline is such a wonderful person and appears to be truly passionate about the dogs. Even in a large group setting, she knows when a dog may need individual attention and really takes the time to work past the rough spots or issues a dog may be having a hard time with.
I can't say it enough. Pup Scouts is awesome!
Pup Scouts is one of Life's Great Blessings. As far as value for the money - Pup Scouts Rocks. As far as PEACE OF MIND about the care and nurturing of your dog - Pup Scouts provides THAT!!! I toured some "home grown" cheaper dog sitters and it was scary (no checks, any dog AT ALL allowed, etc) I toured more expensive facilities and the dog's play time was severely limited and I had to PAY EXTRA if I wanted additional minutes for my dog to be able to romp and play with others! Pup scouts makes no such maddening fees for puppy play, they watch your pup carefully AND, if you desire - can provide training as well. The owner Jane Kline has been passionate about the care, nurturing and training of dogs since she was a little girl. It is a treasure to find a business who has such inner core sincere dedication to their posted buisness mission (some businesses are just a business - Jane is hands on). OUR LIFE IS GREATLY ENHANCED because of the blessing of Pup Scouts.
It's okay.. I would not return back though. PupScouts is a good idea, in the eyes of the first time dog owners it must be a perfect and inexpensive training facility. It is though not developed to its full potential. As a professional I can say that they lack a lot of things. They try to socialize pups which is great and they have good ideas and programs, agility is great too, but the training ideas are very old fashioned. One example: They think that lots of excitement is going to help you with training which is not quite true (some dogs react on that kind of excitement very well, and it's beneficial but lots of doggies dont care about the human emotions in that way.. PupScouts put a TON of emotions into their training, lots of annoying high pitch tones), by lots of excitement they're only creating a very anxious environment - doggies are very excited and it's challenging to keep their attention, mainly if you have a hyper young dog. There are many things that would need to be fixed, but they're an okay facility.
Pup Scouts is My Favorite!. Pup Scouts is my favorite place in the world! I started going there when I was 3 months old and I have to admit, I was a pretty badly behaved lab puppy. I chewed everything, couldn't function on a leash and had trouble with general listening skills. I also had a jumping problem and wanted to bite everything and everyone with my sharp puppy teeth. When my owners were at their wits end, they heard about Pup Scouts from a family member and thought they'd give it a try. It took some time for me to catch on, but after graduating with flying colors from 3 puppy obedience classes and a K9 Good Citizen training, I felt pretty proud of myself. I had learned to walk on a leash, sit, lay down, fetch, roll over, go on my pillow at command and stay. I also made some great friends along the way and even dabbled in agility and flyball. Although I still sometimes like to get off my lead and around the pup scouts warehouse, I would say I am pretty well behaved...so would my owners. Along the way, I've also made some great friends. I attend camp at least once a week and have a blast playing outside in the kiddie pool and lounging around inside on the doggy couches. And at the end of the day, I'm so tired that I usually just crash and give my owners a guilt-free date-night out out on the town! One more thing...Jane Klien and her staff are great! They are alwats patient and willing to lend advice and support to my owners who usually have no clue what they're doing! I highly recommend Pup Scouts to any dog owners, whether they're looking for obedience classes, recreational sports or just a great day camp.
Not sure what we would do without Pupscouts!!!.
We began bringing our dog to Pupscouts when she was four months old for basic obedience training and were immediately impressed with Pup Scouts, and particularly with Jane, the owner. Since that time, we have taken advantage of many of the training classes offered at Pupscouts (obedience, Agility, and also fun ones like Games class and Tricks class). The classes (all positive-reinforcement based) are a great way to bond with your dog and to benefit from a highly experienced dog trainer . My husband and I have really enjoyed all the classes and learned so much, not to mention that we now have a very well trained dog! She even passed her Canine Good Citizen test, no doubt due to the excellent training she received at Pup Scouts. We plan to train our dog to be a therapy dog in the future and this would definitely not be a possibility were it not for all the great training she has received at Pup Scouts!
Our dog also comes to Pupscouts for daycare on a weekly basis. She absolutely loves it, and like some of the other reviewers have also noted about their dogs, she begins wagging her tail and letting out happy little whines of excitement when we turn on Armory Dr. In fact, we can't even say "Pupscouts" unless we are headed out the door to go there because she knows what it means and gets so excited!
The facility is always clean and I've always been amazed that it doesn't stink or smell "doggy" at all. The staff is kind to my dog. The dogs are carefully screened for compatibility with the other dogs prior to coming to daycare. They take great care of the dogs when they are there. They have a "nap time" each day and the staff even put out a baby pool in the summer for the dogs to splash around in. There is a large area indoors to play in if it is too cold, hot, or rainy to be outside. She is always exhausted when she comes home and a tired dog is a happy dog! I am very protective of my dog but I don't worry a bit when she is at Pup Scouts because she is in the best of hands and having a great time!
We are so glad we found Pupscouts and can't say enough good things!
5 Star Service, kind people who love dogs.
Jane Kline is the best. She truly cares about the dogs. She has great systems in place to make sure that the dogs are always under human oversight and guidance. She has a difficult job, retaining caring and attentive dog care providers when her business model does not allow her to make them full time employees with benefits.
She works 12 + hour days regularly and is careful to only accept dogs that can can get along with the other dogs and the staff.
I don't many people that work as hard as Jane and know as much about dog training and care.
Keep up the great work.
The very best doggy day care. Jane Kline and her staff welcome every doggy client, especially the big dogs. My dog has been a daily Pup Scout camper for over 5 years. When I ask him every morning "do you want to go to school?" he can barely contain himself. He can't wait to go to Pup Scouts and play with his "friends". The environment is clean, safe and most of all loving. We're fortunate to have them in our lives! Bentleysmom
Pup Scouts is for Nashville's Coolest Dogs. My owners starting bringing me to Pup Scouts as soon as I was big enough so that's been almost four years. They thought I needed to learn that I am a dog. I play in the pack at Pup Scouts. Sometimes I get a bath (ugh!). Owner Jane Kline comes in every day and makes sure everything is going smoothly. Sometimes she even lets my owners come for special classes, like obedience (I am a canine good citizen), agility (lots of fun for me because I can run faster than my mom) and flyball. I get to spend some holidays and weekends with Jane -- we have a big dog party and a sleepover at Pup Scouts. Jane knows all about dogs and has a great staff that watch out for all of us.
No worries when Daisy goes to Doggie Day Care.
Initially I came to Pup Scouts for training of my "wild child." I have since learned the merits of doggie day care.
My dog LOVES to go to Pup Scouts. Whether for day care, classes helping me "connect with my dog" or just to have fun, it is obvious that my girl loves the facility and the all the folks there. The minute I make the turn on to Armory Drive, she starts whining. Loudly! And I find Pup Scouts to be very accomodating for those of us with complex lives and schedules.
The owner Jane Kline is a very knowledgeable trainer. She sees and thoroughly understands canine behaviors, and helps those of us who might otherwise be clueless. No, Pup Scouts may not be as high tech as some of the newer facilities. But I do not need "puppy cams" for me to check on my girl. Her demeanor tells me all I need to know. I have no worries while my dog is at Pup Scouts.
Pup Scouts is a 10**********. I work long hours and it was wonderful to drop my puppy off earily in the morning and pick her up at 6:00pm and know that she had had a great day playing with other dogs and learning her manners. Our dog is four years old and still wags her tail like crazy the minute we pull up to Pup Scouts. She can not wait to get inside to see Jane, the Pup Scouts staff, and her K9 friends. We heard about Pup Scouts for years before becoming a client. I recommend it to eveyone that needs the service. It has been a life saver for us. It is important to me to know that my dog is happy and well cared for when she is with Jane. To me Pup Scouts deserves 10 stars**********
