About Denver Dog Guru


Denver Dog Guru offers mindful dog training. I consider myself a balanced dog trainer and human educator. My mission is simple; to help your dog live its happiest life while helping you bond with your dog in a way that is structured, loving, and balanced.


Whether you have a new puppy or you’re trying to teach an old dog new tricks, I can help you get there in a way that is gentle and perceptive. I will show you how to interact with your dog with calm confidence and impeccable timing.


Dogs live in the present moment, so catching an undesired behavior before or as it happens is everything. Dogs are constantly talking to us in their own way; mostly through non-verbal cues and body language. I can help you identify these subtle energies so that you can better understand your dog.

I am here to support you on this important journey. Every step of the way.


Meet the Trainer

Alex Nieto - Founder and Trainer


Growing up, I was passionate about two things: basketball and animals. I played college basketball and had no idea what I wanted to be when “I grew up.” Through the years, I realized that I connect to dogs in a way that not many people can. So, I decided to start Denver Dog Guru out of pure love for animals; I want to see dogs live happy and healthy lives.


My intuitive training approach will teach you how to speak your dog’s language. I specialize in puppy training, obedience, behavior modification, and on & off leash training. I will address your concerns with care and develop a training strategy that is digestible and structured for your family's needs.

"Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen."
