Will and Vivian Stoppel
Will and Vivian Stoppel founded Scotch Pines Dog Training and Boarding in Payette, Idaho, in 1993. Scotch Pines grew into the largest dog training business in Idaho, serving thousands of dogs and their owners throughout the Treasure Valley and beyond. The Stoppels sold the dog training portion of their business to their daughter, April, in 2004.
In 2013 they made the decision to sell the boarding kennel and move to sunny Arizona! In 2016 they were forced to repossess the boarding kennel. Although we as a family enjoyed many many years of caring for your dogs, the decision was made to permanently retire Scotch Pines Doggy Camp.
