VIP Dog Sports is a dog training company that is new to the area of upstate South Carolina. Although the company and name are new to the area, we are not new to dog training. We recently relocated to South Carolina from Colorado where we owned and operated an indoor/outdoor training facility under the name of Friendship Academy. This business was passed down to a client that has been mentored by us for the past 6 years and we will continue to assist in it’s success for as long as we can!
You might wonder why we would pack up and move. Well, having been on the eastern plains of Colorado for 18 years, we were ready to make a change. When we visited South Carolina, we fell in love. Purchasing our dream house in Central, South Carolina is only the tip of the iceberg for us. We plan to rebuild our training business and in addition, we plan to build an Indoor, climate controlled, turfed Sports Arena. Our plan is to host many dog events including our own personal love, dog agility. Our hopes for the facility include a kitchen, training rooms, showers for overnight guests, rv hookups, outdoor fenced areas for the dogs, a classroom to accommodate seminars and a private room to be used for scoring events.
We realize that these dreams will take time, so meanwhile we are starting our training business in our on-site training facility that features an indoor climate-controlled training space with matting and an outdoor fenced agility ring for our advanced agility students.

I learned that the fundamentals are key. Without a solid base, like positive practices, training cannot move forward. Yet I think the most essential…
I have had the pleasure of working with Katelyn this last year and have found her to be a very talented trainer, coach and teacher. I love how she is always an advocate for the dogs and helps me to see things from there perspective. She is very good at explaining things and also meets…

We have been training multiple dogs with Katrina Scott for several years. She is an extremely well versed and well rounded dog trainer. She has shown the unique ability to work with sometimes problematic/aggressive dogs. Her calm and confident demeanor sets a positive training environment. Susan and David Beiner

I have been training with Katrina and now Katelyn for over 3 years. I have enjoyed their positive methods of training my dog and training me to my dog. If one method doesn’t work they will try another to help me out to move through an agility course. They understand my limitations and work with…

Katrina and Katelyn have been lifesavers for myself and my Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Mr. Tibbs. I came to them over 4 years ago after taking Tibbs to 3 other obedience trainers. Granted, I am partially to blame for dropping out of the others, but I wasn’t getting the results I needed. All I wanted…
