About Us

Montana has been in business for over 35 years and provides Reward-Based and Positive Dog Training Services.

All training methods are humane, reward-based, and use positive reinforcement techniques. We believe training should be fun and include games and play.

We specialize in Puppy Head Start Programs, Private in-home lessons, Group Classes, Concierge Services and Virtual Lessons.

Big Sky Dog Training is a privately owned company by Montana Hayes, a woman that has been involved with the rescue and training of dogs and horses for over 35 years. She is a skilled dog trainer and she has been attending continuing education courses and programs throughout her carrier.

Montana uses reward-based training techniques and is here to help you with your companion, sport dog, or puppy. She helps you correct inappropriate behaviors and redirect the dog to an appropriate behavior/position that the dog can be rewarded for.

She will teach you how to train your dog with foundation and obedience skills that will create a cohesive, loving relationship. She also specializes in a puppy head-start program that helps you raise a well-behaved and obedient puppy.
