Scott Glen grew up on a cattle ranch in southern Alberta, Canada. His family used dogs for help around the ranch only minimally and so he didn't know how much work a well trained dog could save a rancher. When he was in his early 20's, Scott decided to raise a flock of sheep. While on his way to a wool shearing class, he was distracted by a man and his border collie giving a sheepherding demo and he has been hooked on herding ever since. Scott has been training and trialing border collies to herd sheep and cattle for over 20 years. In 1997 he turned his hobby into a full time job, creating Alta-Pete Stockdogs. Scott chose the name Alta-Pete (which means "aim high") because it was his personal, and his family's Scottish clan motto.
Scott has proven his abilities by winning many major trials over the years with dogs from several different border collie lines. However, Sweep, the foundation sire for Alta-Pete stockdogs produced winning pups that have allowed Scott to compete with over four generations of the same line. Sweep and Scott won many trials together and still hold the record for being the only dog to win the Western Canadian Championships 3 times. Two of Sweep's pups, Dan and Fly, were Scott's next generation of winners with Dan winning the 2000 Canadian Championships and Fly becoming the 2001 USBCHA Reserve National Champion.
Dan's pups, Pleat and Tala carried the torch after his retirement. Tala was the 2004 USBCHA Reserve National Champion the same year her littermate, Pleat was the National Champion. This made Scott the first Canadian to win the title. It also made him the first breeder to win first and second with littermates that he bred and trained. Pleat won many major trials including the Bluegrass, Meeker and Soldier Hollow.
Don and Alice were the next two major trial winners for Scott. Don won the Bluegrass and two USBCHA National Championships and Alice, his daughter won the Nationals three times. Alice also goes back to Scott's Sweep. Alice is the most accomplished border collie in the history of trialing in North America.
In 2023 Scott attended the World Trial in Ireland with Pip and Mist. Pip placed 3rd making Scott the highest placing North American handler ever, in the World Trial. When he returned, he was inducted into the American Border Collie Hall of Fame on the same night as Alice was also inducted. That weekend he also won his 7th USBCHA National Championship with Pip (Pip's first win) and was Reserve Champion with Alice's granddaughter, Mist who was only 2 years old.
