We used Paul Caissie for a behavioral problem were having with our 5 year old cotton poo.  She would constantly bark and pull on the lead during walks or when someone came to the front door.


Paul  came to our house and assessed our two dogs in their own environment just to observe them and to see what type of behavior they were exhibiting when someone came to the door and during a walk.


After, he suggested we use a gentle stimulus collar on the both of them for correction during bad behavior.    It worked fabulous.  Now the dogs are behaving and we hardly have to use the collar anymore.  


We highly recommend Paul for any of your canine needs.  It works.

I have a 120 lb. German Shepherd who is dog reactive and needless to say walking him was a nightmare until I met Paul .

I have had 2 different trainers and spent countless dollars with no success  

One trainer after enrolling in two different programs told me he is dog reactive and can never be around other dogs ( which I already knew ) I then hired a second trainer who took him home for training and when he came back was so well behaved until the trainer left then he was right back to his aggressive ways.

When I seen Pauls credentials I knew if anyone could help it would be him but boy was I pleasantly surprised when I saw significant changes by our second session which gave me the confidence to be able to start enjoying our walks for the first time ever

Paul came to my house to meet Lupo and address my concerns He made me feel both comfortable and confident that I had finally found the right trainer to not only train my dog but to train me as well

I highly recommend Caissie Canine Instruction!

Bryan and Max.jpg

After 30 years if service as a Paramedic, with the last 20 years of my career as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic working aboard the Helicopter stationed out of London, Ontario I found myself facing the challenges of PTSD.


To that point in time, I had always had the companionship of a dog in my life, however at that particular time I was missing that element.  That is where Max came into my life and our journey began.


Max and I entered into the Training Program with Caissie K9 Instruction and my life changed overnight. I now have a furry friend to lean on in those times of need. On a regular basis Max and I are approached and asked "where did you get Max trained"," I can`t believe he behaves so well", "He`s stuck to you like glue", "What a beautiful animal", "Your so lucky".


Now the owner of Frontline Forward a complete Overall Health and Wellness facility we have officially collaborated with Caissie K9 Instruction Program and offer this service to our clientele.


With Frontline Forward`s level of Integrity, Commitment, and High Standards the Caissie K9 Program was a sure fit. We are proud to offer this High Quality Program. 


Bryan Stevens,


“I tracked Paul down in the fall of 2017 for some help with obedience and quickly moved onto advanced training in tracking and area search.


With several sessions and a lot of “homework” he helped me certify in both disciplines-with a Dalmatian. He is one of the few people who believed in my dog regardless of her breed. 


I have now added a Belgian Shepherd to my pack and will continue advanced training with Paul for many years to come.”


Steve Zinger, Misa and Vandal in the Greater Toronto Area. 


After a great deal of research and vetting our search for a top notch trainer to help us with our pack of 3 large breed rescues led us to Paul at Caissie Canine Instruction.

Professional, passionate, effective, respectful, loving, fun, caring, thorough; these are just a few of the many adjectives that come to mind when we think about Paul and his training methods.  His authentic love for both our animals and his job are on obvious display at every session.

We noticed an immediate improvement in both obedience and some behavior modifications after just our first session. And we have been absolutely blown away by how available and helpful he has been when we have had questions for Paul while we do our “homework” between our sessions.

We can’t imagine that you would easily be able to find another dog trainer as competent and helpful as Caissie Canine.  Highly recommended. 

Thanks Paul,

About two years ago I decided that It would be a good idea to bring home a Malinois . 


I mean what could go wrong I had done my homework and was an experienced GSD owner.

Well to cut a long story short “ OH my god what did I do help!!!!

So I reached out to Paul and myself and Rookie did the basic puppy course and I learnt how to work with a very high drive dog we then followed it up with the ecollar training and some tracking work and have plans this summer to  branch into some agility and scent work .


Throughout my Malinois adventure Paul has been amazing even when Rookie mistook him for a decoy and went for a little chew or when I’ve called him with a stupid question Paul has been great .


if you have a high drive dog or dog that has you questioning your sanity then this is the place to help
