Winner For The Best


We are incredibly honoured to have been chosen as the Quality Business Awards winner for Best Dog Trainer in Greeley, Colorado for 2024.

Since being evaluated for the award we have relocated to Denver, Colorado and look forward to continuing to provide out clients and their dogs with the best training possible.


Our Philosophy

At Top Paw K9 Academy, we prefer the term canine coaching as opposed to dog training because coaching has a specific task; to help their subject find the strength in themselves to make a positive change. This means that when we coach a dog, we become a team and work with them together as one; with the dog making as many choices in the process as the coach does. This means we see behavior change through empowerment and self-confidence. Two essential traits that a dog can use for the rest of their life.

We are thrilled to offer a wide range of services to help you and your furry friend receive the best training and therefore best chance at lifelong success. From Board & Train programs to group classes, one-on-one in-person sessions, doggy daycare, and more, we have everything you need to ensure your dog's happiness, well-being, and best behavior.
