Top Paw K9 Academy was founded by Jennifer and is located in Colorado.  Jennifer has dedicated her life's work to training and helping dogs and their owners better their bond. Top Paw K9 Academy runs on a unique philosophy, recognizing that training dogs is not a one size fits all approach. Every dog is met with caring encouragement and respect to ensure that both owner and dog are confident in their abilities as a team.


To help each dog reach their full potential by identifying individual needs, using positive reinforcement, balanced training methods, and establishing a level of understanding between owner and K9.


Jennifer uses a variety of methods within her training programs. Dogs, like people, are all individuals. What works for one dog, may not work for another. Knowing this, Jennifer uses a tailored approach to her training to ensure that all dogs are learning in a way that will benefit them for life.


Every training technique used or suggested by Jennifer is backed by research and experience. Every training session is approached with kindness, patience, and understanding. All training is done in a non-judgmental and non-rushed environment.

Executive Administrator & Customer Service

February 2022 - August 2023

"I started working with Jen in 2022 after first consulting with her for assistance with me own pup! In the year and a half we have worked together, I helped Jen revamp Top Paw K9 Academy from the ground up! From building (a few) new websites, managing client relations, creating multi-page documents and so much more.


I am grateful to Jen for taking a chance on me even from a whole other country! I have learned so much more than I could have imagined while working in my position and I know I've taught Jen a lot as well. While it is a bitter-sweet time, I am looking forward to taking on my new full-time position at local businesses and I look forward to seeing what comes next for Jen and Top Paw K9 Academy as well as my replacement Koz, who I have full faith in and know she will do a phenomenal job taking over!"
