The Inspiration

The Late Scott Jetter, Founder of Canine Craze, inspired people for years through dog training.  During his years of teaching he motivated Canine Craze trainers and clients to go outside their comfort zone, push the envelope, and be innovative.  He inspired people to be the best they could be, always ask “why?”, and teach with compassion.  Many trainers and clients remember him and his many shenanigans, such as his catchy phrase, “Have the Best Day EVER!”.  Canine Craze’s trainers and staff are honored to continue his legacy.
