Professional Trainers of Warner K9
Scott is the Owner and Head Trainer for Warner K9 Dog Training. He has been training dogs since 2009, starting when he taught classes in obedience and manners at the Walnut Creek. He then mentored and worked as Sara Scott’s Assistant Dog Trainer at What’s Up Dog Training, assisting with her private lessons and classes at Tony La Russa’s internationally respected Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), located in Walnut Creek for several years, specializing in on leash-aggressive dogs, before starting Warner K9.
For fun, Scott runs a competitive Dog Training Club for a protection sport called, French Ring. As an extremely passionate member of the sports organization for 8 years, Scott has risen from a basic member, to the West Coast Zone Representative of the organization, NARA (North American Ringsport Association). Not only is he also the president and training director of a Working Dog Club, but he was also a certified Level 2 Trial Decoy.
Scott’s black lab Tess is his right hand woman. Tess typically comes to most lessons (as long as the weather is appropriate) and helps out when needing a neutral and well behaved dog during a lesson. While Tess has no titles, she holds the hearts of all that meet her! She is a very important member of our Warner K9 Team.
Meagan has been in the dog training industry since 2005. She has trained and competed dogs in many different venues. Some of those include Rally Obedience, Agility, Dock Jumping, Nose Work, and Protection Sports. Over the years, she has mentored several trainers and attended seminars. She was the head trainer and puppy class instructor for a service dog organization while she was attending UC Davis. Eventually she moved back to the Bay Area where she was the manager and trainer at a well established Dog Daycare. In 2014 she opened her own successful Dog Training and Day Camp business. Dog Training is her passion and she finds joy and happiness in helping owners and dogs learn to work together as a family.
Scott and Meagan decided to combine business in 2020. They both have helped train hundreds of pet dogs in a range of issues from jumping, pulling on leash, barking, nipping, biting, potty training, counter surfing, not coming when called to severe on leash aggression. While being experienced with many different breeds, ages and temperaments, Warner K9 loves working with puppy owners or prospective puppy owners to provide knowledge and skills so they can confidently raise their new four legged family member after the puppy has completed one of the puppy boot camps.
There goal is to help you, the owners, strengthen the bond with your pets! Learning, setting boundaries, engaging and making sure your dog gets the training they need to create a happier life for all of you!
