Changes for Rocky Mountain Dog Trainers After Investigation

You may remember last month's explosive Call for Action Investigation.
We confronted a Colorado Springs dog training center.
Now the business is being forced to change the way it operates.

"Take your hands off!"
"Get out of my business!"

This was the response I got last month when I asked the owner of Rocky Mountain Dog Trainers why refunds weren't mentioned in his contracts.
Master trainer Scott Martin refused to answer my questions and ordered me out.

"Get the f... out of my face! Get out of my business. The next time you come walking around here... watch out for the pitbull."

We learned the state department of agriculture is taking action against Rocky Mountain Dog Trainers. After failing three of four inspections its application to board dogs has been denied.

That means come October first, Rocky Mountain can no longer keep customers' dogs. It can train them, but only when their owners are there.
I called Martin and he told me he's appealing the state's decision and is making some changes, downsizing and going from a training to more of a rescue operation.

He says he applied for a 501-C3, non-profit license with the I.R.S. and will now try to get a state rescue license. Scott says he's rehabbing dogs and then asking folks to adopt them at fairs.

Scott also apologized for his behavior towards me and for displaying fake diplomas in his lobby. He says it was underhanded, but he wasn't trying to deceive anyone... just trying to make it in a tough market.

The state says it hasn't received Martin's appeal for the boarding license, nor his application for a rescue license. It also says Colorado doesn't require licenses for dog trainers, just their facilities.

    Scott needs to be held accountable for ava the militarys mans dog.He is stalling on that issue and he needs to be honest but who expects that.i still cant understand the dumb folks that still support him or just on his page maybe to keep up with the next chapter lies lies lies the big doggie him self.I think he suffers from mental illness and is bipolar has the signs or maybe another personality issue.anyone that has to brag and be the big doggie has got to be something wrong.i dont think he ever completely sobered up from his alcohol and drugs Its been quiet but we all know its not over,God help us and all the dogs he has hurt.
