All training and boarding will be conducted at Pender Pet Retreat in Chantilly, VA. We will no longer be running our program out of the house. After 5 years, I will finally be able to go home from work! Please see our updated programs and pricing on the board and train page.

Citizen K9 is the premier board and train program in the DC Metro area.


We focus on establishing a positive relationship between the dog and the family.  Our mission is to keep dogs in their homes, and out of the shelter.  We don't treat symptoms, we treat the cause.   Our comprehensive approach includes an in-depth review of all the environmental factors that influence a dog's behavior, from lineage and medical history to feeding and family structure.
