Topline K9 Solutions offers three paths to begin your K9 training journey and many of our clients enjoy a combination of them all. 

  • Group Classes teach your dog to focus and listen to you at home and in public despite all the surrounding distractions. Our classes are located in Raleigh NC.

  • Private Lessons in your home are beneficial for immediate results or behavior issues that cannot be handled in a classroom environment.

  • K9 Training School, where we train your dog for you in our own homes, will save you time and frustration (appropriate group classes are free with this service). We cover the Raleigh/Triangle NC and surrounding cities.

And we also offer our Continuing Education program to all our clients so your dog's training continues while you are out of town, renovating your home, having surgery, etc.

Paying attention

to instructions!

"When I first got Bitsy Dog at 6 wks old I took her to my vet. She said Bitsy was very smart and I should have her trained. I found Sylvie and although she was reluctant to start Bitsy so young she agreed and Bitsy took all of Sylvie's puppy classes, advanced classes and then went through her Pet Therapy classes. Sylvie can do wonders with dogs."
