Dog Training with Results for People on the Go

Intensive Dog Training for the Sarasota-Bradenton ARea

We have several options available for busy families, working professionals, or avid travelers, with a focus on Intensive Training. Your dog comes back to your home with a progress report on the training activities, and we debrief you on all that your dog has learned. Our Intensive Training options are designed with convenience in mind, and are tailored to meet your specific needs. We use methods that have been scientifically proven to work, and we can guide you and your furry companion through even the most difficult issues. Training with you in mind; that's what we do at Good CitiZEN Dog. 

Boot Camp 

Convenience and Results

We realize that bringing a new puppy or rescue dog into your home, while very exciting, can also create anxiety and disruption. Like newborn children, the first few days, weeks, and months of your dog’s new life are critical for his or her happy and healthy development, as well as a lifetime of harmony in your home. The Boot Camp concept has gained great popularity for people who are busy with work and family, but still want a really well-trained and well-adjusted dog. While you are hard at work, so are we – training your dog. The Boot Camp option is of the most popular packages we offer in the Bradenton and Sarasota areas.

Board and Train


With our Board and Train option, 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 it accompanies the trainer throughout the day in a range of settings. Then your pooch bunks with us at night, in our award winning boarding facility. Learning is fast and intensive. 

In-Home Dog Sitting and Training

The Best of Both Worlds!

If boarding is not your style, then try our in home dog sitting and training service. With this option you get the best of both worlds; wonderful care for your furry friend while you are away, and a big warm welcome by a well-trained dog when you return. This option is completely customizable to meet your needs. Whether you will be gone for just a few days or a few months, we've got you covered. And we can help you decide the right amount of training to add into the mix to achieve the results you want. 

Day Training

Socialization and Training all in One

We offer a Doggy Day Training program for the Bradenton and Sarasota area. This is a great choice for busy working professionals and families who want the best for their dog. While you and your family are hard at work and school, we are too – training and nurturing your dog, at our very well run doggy day care partner facility ACE Pet Resort. You get the benefits of doggy daycare - socialization and a tired dog - as well as the benefits of our training; a well behaved and calm dog.
