Sugako Sasaki, CPDT-KA, ADT-IAABC, FDM, FFCP, Atlas-CT

Sugako, originally from Japan, started her dog training career as an intern with Companion Animal Solutions and Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue while completing degrees in Canine Behavior Analysis and Animal Assisted Therapy. She then transitioned to working with autistic children under the supervision of Board Certified Behavior Analysts. After 5 years, Sugako returned to her love of dog behavior, providing virtual services in Japan and in-person services in Washington State.
Sugako’s love of behavior led her to complete multiple certifications and courses.  She is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), an Accredited Dog Trainer through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (ADT-IAABC), a Certified Family Dog Mediator (FDM), Fear Free Certified Animal Trainer (FFCP) and a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Trick Evaluator for the American Kennel Club (AKC). She is also a certified service dog trainer through Atlas Assistance Dogs.
Sugako specializes in shy and fearful dogs, leash reactivity, service dog training, and cooperative care training. She enjoys providing canine enrichment with parkour training, as well as developing enrichment for senior and disabled dogs.
Sugako provides in person behavior modification and training services in southwest King County.
We love working with Sugako!!! She has helped Roma incredibly and help us understand how to read her body language. Our Roma is a livestock guardian dog and she has helped train Roma from being a reactive dog to being able to go on walks at the park, comfortable with other dogs at the park, kids, people, and even going in the water at the beach. Roma can be quickly redirected from other reactive dogs as well and has learned lots of tricks too. She is even learning parkour.
Sugako uses positive reinforcement and we continue to see amazing improvements with Roma. We highly recommend Sugako.
