Scott is a smart, insightful and talented dog-trainer. He doesn't just recite training philosophies, but details step-by-step approaches that clearly work. He understands the nuances of each dog/owner situation and adjusts accordingly. Have very much enjoyed working with him to train my now one-year old labrador, "Moose."

If you're not getting the results you want from your current training method, I highly recommend that you call Scott.

Dogs on the Mark owner, Scott Burgess, is both professional and passionate in his work with dogs. From the first meeting you can see his dedication to training dogs with positive reinforcement and care, yet he never relinquishes the leadership role. My dogs responded immediately. His suggestions were on point, and easily duplicated by us once he was gone.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve or reclaim their role as master of the home, those looking for behavioral improvements, or anyone seeking to train their dogs for higher level skills such as hunting or related dog trials. This is one investment that won't lose it's value --the price is right and their is only capital gain in the end!


Scott was working with a neighbor's new lab puppy when I met him. I watched him working with that puppy and decided that my very active eight month old yellow lab needed some professional training. He worked with me and Cooper for over two hours, at our home, which was very convenient for me. He also routinely checked on his home training, to see if I needed any more help. His training methods are very calm and relaxed. I am very pleased with what Scott has taught Cooper as well as what I have learned. I would recommend him to anyone.

My experience with Scott from "Dogs on the mark" left me feeling more secure leaving my dogs out of their crates while I was not at home. I have two dogs, and one of them (a wiener dog) thinks he can jump on the couch when no one is at home.

After some training and a lot of patience, I can trust that my furniture will still be intact when I return. I am very pleased with the results a little bit of understanding from both myself and the dog did for my home. Highly recommended.

We feel so lucky and blessed to have found Scott at: Dogs On The Mark. He takes such great care of our Bowline and brings his dog Dakota to play at ever visit. It is nice to know that our dog gets to play and run during the day while we are at work. He has trained Bowline to dock jump and has shown us the right products to help reinforce Bowlines training. We come home to a well worked and calm dog after a hard day at work.
