An Intensive Educational Program

Board & Train for Sarasota and Bradenton

With Board and Train, the Good CitiZEN Dog Trainer works with your canine companion while at our partner boarding facility ACE Pet Resort. In between training sessions, your furry friend gets plenty of socialization with other dogs, and has a warm comfortable place to sleep at night. This is a great choice for training and boarding outside of your home. Your dog gets ongoing positive feedback as he or she accompanies the trainer throughout the day, in a wide range of settings. Then your pooch bunks with us at night. Learning is fast and intensive. This has been a very popular choice with families that travel, and can’t always bring their dog with them. And you come back to a more well behaved companion!

  • chew training (no biting or nipping)

Board & Train is a popular service, because you can address two concerns at the same time; having a great place to board your dog while you are away, and getting some much needed training for your fur baby. Board & Train is a fantastic way of helping your dog achieve his or her maximum potential. Each session includes tons of intensive training, excursions with our trainer, exercise, and lots and lots of extra TLC.

In addition, Good CitiZEN Board & Train packages include educational materials and individualized training goals. You will receive updates and progress reports by email each day as we work with your dog. In addition we meet with you at the conclusion of the Board & Train to share your dog’s “report card” and to pass along the lessons learned to family members. We pride ourselves in giving the best service you can find on the Suncoast. For rates, please contact us. Our packages are based on the number of sessions provided, with a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 30 sessions. The more sessions you sign up for, the less it costs per session.
