Sarasota's best dog trainers!

Dog training involves teaching dogs how to communicate with humans, learning the commands, then making sure they know it and will do it in all real life situations, while at the same time teaching dog owners how to communicate with the dogs as well, and developing an enjoyable bond and relationship for life. Every dog has a different personality and natural instincts, and needs to be approached individually.

If you live in Sarasota or Manatee County, our dog training school  in Venice is here to help! We are top rated experienced trainers who can train your dog from puppy stage to adulthood to AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and then to top competitions, or train your dog to become a well mannered family member and best friend.

Lets talk
Dennis Kalick and Penny

"Penny is my first dog. Olga knew how to channel her energy and how to manage her protective instincts from day one, teaching me what to do took a little longer, but we had a lot of fun with our on site outings."

Crystal Gonzalez and Davis

"Olga showed Davis how to communicate and what to expect from the humans and he flourished into a confident pleasant companion... He is now well adjusted to his Manhattan life and is now the star of the neighborhood!"

Ashley Piers

"I’ve had such great experiences working with Olga, especially in conditioning! Working with Olga on a conditioning and nutrition program, we saw dramatic improvements in a very short time. "

Natalya Valerio and Jenna

"Our Jena had an abundance of energy and was always ready for an “adventure”.  That could mean anything from jumping on the dining room table to stealing a chocolate bar or taking a bite out of a door molding.  Something had to be done.  When we found Olga, we knew we came to the right place. "

Lisa Kramer and Nola

I brought my 6 month old rescue, Nola, to Olga at and it was life changing. I am a first-time dog mom and was extremely nervous. Olga not only took good care of my puppy, but did an incredible job teaching her essentials. I’m looking forward to bringing Nola back for boarding and additional fine tuning of Nola’s training. I cannot thank Olga enough!!"

Nicole Davies and Roxy

"After a 3 week VIP In-House training, Roxy came home a different dog! Not only I now have an obedient and well behaved dog, Roxy now wants to play and do things together.  She loves Olga and her fitness classes, and we are now learning more and more ways to interact and play together."
