Your Dog Deserves the Best

Why not have your dog trained by the ones who trained the trainers?

At Canine Foundations, we believe that every dog has the potential to be an incredible pet, workmate, or service companion.

As leading experts in canine behaviour, we’re committed to helping you and your dog build a strong, rewarding relationship that will last a lifetime.

Our training programs are founded on evidence-based solutions that adhere to the best industry practices and are delivered by professionals dedicated to excellence.

Because your dog deserves the best from us.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship.

If you’re here, you already know how special the bond between dogs and humans can be.

But, like any relationship, you have to nurture it in order to reap the rewards. The tricky part is the communication gap - we don’t innately understand each other.  We need to rely on the science of canine behaviour to do that.

My name is Julie Speyer and I am the founder of Canine Foundations. With 20+ years of canine rehabilitation experience and a background in animal cruelty investigations and animal control, my team and I have seen and treated many canine behavioural issues including extreme fear, aggression, and phobias.

Whether you’re a dog owner, vet tech, canine caretaker, law-enforcement officer, or aspiring dog trainer, you’ll find the expertise and training you need with Canine Foundations.

My team looks forward to working with you and your dog to bridge the communication gap and develop a deep trust bond that will endure.

We are proud members of the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association, Municipal Law Enforcement Officers Association, and the Association of Animal Shelter Administrators of Ontario.
