About Us

Canadian Canine College was established in 1998 as Norfolk/Brant County’s premier positive pet dog training facility. We are committed to canine training that considers your pets emotional, physical and intellectual needs.

Our training philosophies will serve to foster a positive relationship between you and your dog. The best training outcomes occur when your dogs trust you as a team leader and can rely on your consistency. We have been developing our training programs for nearly 20 years and that experience lends itself beautifully to our daycare and boarding progams.

Our Philosophy

Our passion for dogs motivates us to continue to learn across multiple venues so that we can deliver the best programming for both our human and canine clients.

Our Cancellation Policy

We require 48 hours notice for cancellation of boarding reservations or schedule changes during our Regular Times. Cancellations or changes made with less than 48 hours notice will be charged 25% of what the invoice for the reservation would have been.

What our clients say

The CCC staff under the capable direction of founder, Melissa Pursley has helped our family greatly with our beloved big dogs over the years. Services ranging from puppy socialization, agility classes etc. to boarding, day care and grooming have all added to our dogs' development and well-being since the founding of the endeavour. Melissa's extensive knowledge and caring are big pluses from our viewpoint. I have no hesitation in recommending the CCC.

I enthusiastically recommend the Canadian Canine College to other dog owners who want only the absolute best. The staff are caring, knowledgeable and dedicated to the best for all of the dogs in their care. The dog classes are also fantastic; both fun and informative.

When I drop my girl off for daycare or boarding, I know she is in excellent hands and will have a wonderful time playing with all of her doggy friends!

We love everyone at the College! Our dog gets wonderful socialization and play at doggie daycare, awesome and individualized grooming services, and all the trainers are fabulous. Everyone is friendly and always available to answer your questions and provide suggestions or advice. We can confidently leave our dog for boarding with no worries knowing she will be having a blast.
