A personal message from April- owner of Scotch Pines: Thank you for your interest in Scotch Pines. We routinely update our website, keeping all information up to date. Scotch Pines has grown over the years to the point that we no longer have the luxury of answering every question via personal phone calls. Our website has been set up to answer every question we can think of! If there is a question you have that is not covered on our website, please email us and let us know and we will add it to our website! 

 Thank you so much for your understanding!

 We have an extremely high volume of emails, calls and texts daily and try to make our website as informative as possible to help with this volume. 

Please also considering texting brief questions that are not listed above to April's personal cell phone at 208-899-7487 (during normal business hours/days ONLY please) .

I also am a mother and have a family that I enjoy spending Sundays with. 

Please do not text or call on Sundays nor outside of normal business hours.


Thank you for that consideration. 



Please choose ONE means of communication, it is extremely time consuming as well as frustrating to respond to the same question via text, email and/or phone call before we realize they are all from one person :) .

Scotch Pines no longer offers boarding. Please contact your vet for recommendations on boarding facilities. 

  If you are checking registration confirmation, please note on the registration form that notifications for class are not emailed until  two weeks prior to class, first check your spam mail. Thank you for your understanding!
