Welcome to Sasquatch Dogs!

We believe that every dog deserves a great relationship with their family.  However, some dogs have bad habits that prevent them from having the fulfilling life that they deserve.  It is our goal as an in-home dog training company to help as many dogs as we can to become responsible family members, all in the comfort of their home.  We also believe that the best teacher a dog can have is its owners, so we will do everything we can to give you the tools, training, and support you need to work one on one with your dog to achieve your goals.

 

You may be feeling like your dog has the worst issues of any dog on the planet, and maybe even that there is nothing that can be done to help your dog become the buddy and family member that you had hoped for.  We are here to tell you that there is hope, and we will help you.

 

Our training programs are not only built around teaching dogs, but also teaching owners how to train and handle their dogs.  When the owners and the dog learn at the same time, it increases the bond between them  and makes the training more effective and longer lasting. 

 

We travel a wide area to train dogs including Spokane, Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Post Falls, Coeur d'Alene, Hayden, Rathdrum, and more.

 

  

We work with all sorts of issues:

  • Puppy Training
  • Adult dog Training
  • Basic Obedience
  • Leash Reactivity and Pulling
  • Socialization
  • Fear
  • Aggression
  • Behavior Modification

It is our firm belief that you as the owner need to be present, motivated, and 100% willing to work to make this a long-term successful relationship between you and your dog.

 

We do not offer board and train programs.  We are Balanced trainers.  We are not purely positive trainers. 

 

All of our programs include one year of weekly drop in group classes for those who have completed a training program with us, and access to our monthly Pack Walk Adventures where we will be going on hikes in the area as a group of trained and happy dogs.

Before training Charlie was generally unsure about his “place” in our family. This led to issues where it was hard to get him to listen to basic commands and was difficult to correct undesirable behaviors. He didn’t know his boundaries, and he basically thought he could ignore us if he didn’t want to do what we wanted him to do. He would also pull on the leash like crazy, especially if there was another dog or something else distracting. We struggled for a year to teach him, but nothing seemed to stick. 

After training, he’s a much more confident dog. He knows better that we are the boss and he seems more content in his interactions with us and others. We discovered he actually loves to listen to our commands and loves getting lots of positive praise for it. One of his biggest changes is learning to walk calmly on a leash which was always an issue before and was always dreaded. Now it’s one of the highlights of the day.

We absolutely recommend training with Sasquatch Dogs. Not only was it helpful, but it was fun to better learn how to communicate with our dog. We would recommend anyone to Sasquatch Dogs who wants to better understand how to work with their dog.
