    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.

    Online Registration for classes and workshops is available through our Client Portal. You will see our partner Ferghus & Co when logging into the portal. Our classes are listed as Call of the Canine or COTC and take place at the Nepean Location.

    There is parking at 48 Colonnade Road - Call of the Canine, however spaces are limited/reserved on weekdays. There is additional parking behind the building as well as across the street at the park (see the picture).
