You will learn to navigate a number of flowing courses of hoops, tunnels and precision obstacles all the while attempting to improve your dog’s speed and precision and overall distance control.

Our Mission

Call of the Canine brings motivational, science-based methodologies to the dog training classroom, ensuring dog owners have fun teaching their dogs but also build loving relationships with them.

In keeping with Canadian First Nations’ traditional beliefs of interconnection between animals and humans, Call of the Canine understand animals, including our domestic dogs, are equitable partners in our social network, animated with spirit and an ability to communicate. Gifts bestowed by animals can assist in traditional healing. All human natural healing is embedded in healthy relationships with the land and all its inhabitants. We provide services to dog custodians in support of this assumption.

Welcome to Call of the Canine

The Call of the Canine acknowledges that our training center, located in Ottawa, is on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial.

We honour the historical relationships of this community with wild and domestic animals and commit to these values when interacting with the many dogs that enter our premises.

Located in the Colonnade Business Park we offer classes, workshops, puppy playdates and more in our 2500 sq/ft updated facility. We are very excited to be able to offer 2 classrooms, both with rubber flooring and air conditioning to keep everyone safe and comfortable.
