Sean Miller

Owner and Training Director

Sean Miller is the owner of the American Canine Academy in Denver. He is a professional dog trainer who started his career with dogs in 1995 working with pet dogs, service dogs, patrol dogs, sport dogs and security dogs. Sean specializes in behavior modification, all levels of obedience, service dog training, tracking, and protection work. He has the privilege of working with dogs of all breeds and sizes.

Sean began training dogs when he was a teenager. He later apprenticed under a trainer with extensive police, military, sport, and detection experience. He then began studying dog psychology and animal behavior. Sean began training pet dogs because he saw a large percentage of dogs whose owners needed a lot of help, even though they may have already been to other trainers. He then went into business professionally because he saw a growing need for a professional trainer who utilized many techniques with a strong focus in motivational training. Sean is dedicated to continuing his education in order to stay on top of the latest training techniques and behavior studies.
