Update: Rocky Mountain Dog Trainers May Be Forced To Close Its Doors

Last month in a Call for Action investigation we told you about a Colorado Springs dog training facility. KKTV's Betty Sexton has been following up on Rocky Mountain Dog Trainers and learned the Colorado Department of Agriculture is investigating and may force the center to close.

She was told Rocky Mountain's owner, Scott Martin has a business license, but failed to get an agriculture license... which is required for those who board and care for animals in Colorado. The state says the pre-applicaton process requires facilities to be inspected four times before a license is issued. We were told Rocky Mountain failed three of its four inspections for a variety of problems like not have an isolation room for a sick dog, not having any dog runs, as well as a lack of record keeping.

Because of the failed inspections, the state agriculture commissioner could deny Martin's application. If that happens, he would be forced to shut down.

We stopped by Rocky Mountain a few times since our investigation and found the doors locked and no visible business. You may recall from last month's investigation, Betty was told she was not welcome and Scott refused to answer her questions. The Klug family of Colorado Springs asked for Call for Action's help after the center lost one of its dogs and refused to give the family a refund. The Klugs later found their dog, but Martin says the situation was blown out of proportion and claims the contract doesn't allow for any refunds.

    This is for the kaytwa I agree with Kim and Mr ozark and nothing has been mentioned by them trying to hurt any animal cause They said they were animal lovers and so an i.How can posting on RMDT hurt the folks trying to save animals,Its not the comments that hurt Scott Martin hes his worse enemy,they confesed using the false qualifications degrees,he never attended college hes been in prison in and out.If you would trust him not get facts read the complaints,read the folks letters and you would be involved still with him than you arent realy caring for those rescues.Where in the world did you get the volunteers that come he hires from that job placement place,thats been verified When it hits the news hes closed and go to jail will you believe it was wrong they got him?Im glad you stand for him but you are not smart.Yes you have a right to voice and others do too.Do you think this many folks would come forwardthey arent his enemy just want him to stop scams I do rescue not on fb.
