A Family-Owned and Operated Business

It was their love for their dogs, commitment to training, and opportunities to hunt and train on wild birds, that brought Emmet and Ana Sasser to Montana in 2021. When they found the former “Countryside Kennels” in East Helena, they knew they were home.  This lovely location and its community are the perfect place for Emmet’s vision of a premier space for dog boarding and training, with further plans to develop a facility where dogs can showcase their skills in hunting for the sheer joy of the sport

  Montana Training and Kennels is a family run business with each member bringing unique talents to the care and training of your companion.

Our Philosophy

At MTK, we offer our boarding clients a safe and caring place to stay while you travel. We want your pets to love coming here so you never worry about them while you are away.  

For our training clients, we are focused on building a Champion mindset.  No two dogs are exactly alike; therefore, we tailor all of our care and training to the individual dog and its behavior. Your success with your dog at home, out socially, or in the field, is the hallmark of our service.
