At Big Sky Dog Training, our mission is to create an environment where you and your dog are learning together in a positive and fun environment.

Big Sky Dog Training goes beyond the mechanics of obedience commands. We strive to provide a safe, effective, high-quality, reward-based training program. Our program helps you develop an optimum relationship with your dog, which enables your dog to understand that you are a safe, strong, dependable, fair and consistent leader your dog wants to obey.

Does your dog . . .

  • Jump on people or furniture?
  • Bark too much?
  • Pull when on the leash?
  • Bite or nip you?
  • Chew on household items?
  • Have aggression problems?
  • Have housebreaking problems?
  • Need more socialization?
  • Have separation anxiety?

This is a partial list of items we work on with you, depending on your dog's individual needs.
