Owner/Head Trainer

Scott takes pride in his role as the Mid-West Assistant Director and Emeritus Decoy with the Protection Sports Association. Scott has won multiple PSA titles with his own Dobermans, Caesar and Louie.

Scott first became interested in Police K-9 training while proudly serving his country in the United States Army in the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82ndAirborne Division. His time in the military taught Scott the importance of discipline, hard work, and effective communication. These lessons are integral to Scott’s dog training philosophy.

After being honorably discharged from the Army in 1999, Scott returned to Cincinnati to pursue his lifetime dream of working with dogs. He began his career as a dog trainer by apprenticing under a Master Trainer. Scott gained experience in all aspects of dog training, including obedience, patrol and detection work. After a few years, Scott became the manager and head trainer of the dog training facility. In addition to running the school and training dogs and their handlers, he was also responsible for training all new staff and kennel personnel.

In 2010 Scott became the Head Trainer at the Pet Athletic Club. He specializes in aggression problems, advanced obedience, behavior modification, police dogs and personal protection dogs. Scott is responsible for training all new trainers, developing new programs, and managing the board & train program. He and his Business Partner Ellery took over the company in August of 2019. They are always looking for new ways to improve the PAC to better serve PAC Members. 

Business Partner/General Manager

Ellery is Scott’s Business Partner and our General Manager. She first joined the PAC family back in June of 2018 and quickly moved into the Manager position and within her first year at the company was asked to become a Business Partner. She originally has a back ground in Recruiting and Sales but has become a jack of all trades for us here at PAC. She is the one that has set the standard to make sure that every pet is being spoiled rotten like her own PAC Pup Mia. 

She is also the one behind all of our marketing, customer service, and the one behind the insane parties that we love to throw. She also has a soft spot for any “spicy” pet as some may call them as her own furbaby chooses not to interact with other dogs due to a traumatic upbringing before being adopted by Ell. 

Her favorite things are getting to know each pup as well as she knows her own pup but also the owners. She will always advocate for what is best for the pet as they can not advocate for themselves. 

Not only does she help keep this place running but she also splits her time at a vet office learning as much as she can about the animal medical field to provide even better care for all of our PAC pups. 

She has been trained in CPR by MedVet and has attended many health, behavioral, and infectious disease seminars at the annual dog daycare conventions. She also has spent time learning about the dog sport world and decoying for Scott’s protection dog Louie. 

Ell and Scott have made it their lifetime goals to create a facility that their own pups would love to come to everyday and hope to continue those standards long after they are gone.
