With the credo that “there are no hard-to-train dogs,” Dog World Sarasota has opened a new training facility at 8265 Blaikie Court.

The company is owned by Ivan Balavanov, rated the #1 dog trainer in the world, and David Thompson. Balanavov won the 2007 Best of Breed and All Breed Trainer titles, competing against 100 of the world’s best dog trainers.

Noted Thompson, “The biggest difference between our training program and others in the area, or even the country, is the knowledge and credentials of our training staff. Students in our workshops have the opportunity to excel by learning the basics from one of the world’s greatest teaching minds.”

Besides training and workshops, they also offer boarding, grooming and day care.

Dog World Sarasota is open weekdays from 7am to 7pm (closed from noon to 1pm). Saturday hours are 7am to noon. For more information call 941-377-3647 or visit
