Big Sky Dog Training was established in 2004. Owner and operator, Marty Golden, is a certified canine trainer behavior specialist who received his education at Triple Crown Dog Academy (Now Starmark Academy) just outside Austin, Texas. Marty's education allowed him to acquire hands on training with many different breeds of dogs and their owners. He was privileged enough to work with some of the top trainers in the world.

After graduating at the top of his 
class, Marty earned the right to work
as an apprentice at Triple Crown Dog
Academy. This gave him the 
opportunity to live at the academy for 
another seven months working in the 
gun dog department where his love for 
the sport began. 

In the fall of 2003, Marty returned 
to Billings, Montana and established 
Big Sky Dog Training Inc. For the next 
four years, he worked rigorously with 
owners and their dogs to modify 
behavior and improve communication. 

In 2007 Marty expanded his
business and built a boarding and 
training facility just outside the city of Billings in the town of Ballantine. The training grounds are on ten acres and include a large pond with a 2,000 sq ft kennel building. This environment has given Marty the ability to focus more on each dogs individual needs as well as a fantastic location for owners to board their dogs while they are out of town. 

" My Education combined with my hands on experience has given me the confidence to train at a high level.  Most importantly it's taught me to slow down and analyze a situation. When a dog is confused, don't be so quick to blame the dog"
