Dog Trainers Bradenton and Sarasota Florida

We work hard to help our clients understand how dogs think and how they learn best. Great dog trainers must be able to teach people, just as much as they teach dogs. That's what makes Good CitiZEN Dog Trainers stand out from the rest. We love building relationships with dogs and the people that are important in their life. And we teach you about the science of canine psychology, too. That’s what makes Good CitiZEN Dog Trainers the best in Bradenton and Sarasota. We help you learn how to communicate effectively with your "fur-kids" so you can have the best relationship. Find out more about our local Suncoast trainer, Taryn Carpenter.


Taryn Carpenter

Taryn has had a love affair with dogs since she was a small child. She has owned various breeds and always loved training them. It wasn't until she met Deborah Rosen, our founder and CEO, that Taryn considered the possibility of becoming a dog trainer. Fate took over and their meeting led to a new rewarding career for Taryn. 

Prior to training dogs, Taryn worked in sales and management, but always knew she was destined to work with animals. When they first met, Deborah told Taryn that this career never actually felt like "work". And, after a short time in the business of training dogs and their people, Taryn now understand exactly what she meant. "Every day I wake up and look forward to helping create 'peaceful living with your dog' for the Suncoast community."  She is making a difference teaching group classes and working one-on-one with private training clients throughout the Bradenton, Sarasota, Parrish, Palmetto and many other areas.

When she is not helping people and their dogs, Taryn enjoys spending time with her own family, including a Newfypoo, Hope, and a Havamalt, Elliott. Her life is now very full and she looks forward to working with new clients on a regular basis. "I get so much satisfaction from the work I do with my clients and their companion dogs. The relationships I develop with my incredibly appreciative clients make my life richer and help me look forward to the next one. Even after we're done with lessons, my clients still send me emails and pictures of their dog behaving well. It makes me incredibly proud and happy to be of service."
