Become the leader your dog deserves


Head Trainer Morgan Phillips has blended a background in education with his passion for dogs to deliver some of the best dog training instruction in Canada.  Morgan trained and worked in the UK as a Phys Ed teacher and as a survival instructor for the Bear Grylls Survival Academy, building his trade as a teacher of information in a clear and concise manner, before moving to Canada in 2015.


After years spent training sled dogs and exploring canine conditioning and nutrition, Morgan jumped into the world of police dogs, obedience training and aggression where he developed a system of communication that removes the guess work; by effectively communicating which behaviours you like and which you dislike any pet owner is able to train the dog they want and become the pack leader their dogs deserve.

Situated on an idyllic 26 acre farm near Cannington, Ontario including woodland, pasture and farm animals, MP Canine Academy is the perfect environment to prepare for real world distractions via private lessons (Pack Leader Program) or in group classes . We regularly provide training to clients from Beaverton, Cannington, Woodville, Lindsay, Fenlon Falls, The City of Kawartha Lakes, Uxbridge, Port Perry, Orillia, Barrie and Toronto.

Training a Puppy


Private Dog Training


Our signature private dog training program is something that Morgan has been refining for years.  Designed specifically for average dog owners, the Pack Leader Program teaches owners how to quickly establish leadership with their dogs, and how to use this leadership to guide and teach their dogs the 6 critical skills that every dog should know.

For private dog training, our Pack Leader Program will comprise of:

  • Weekly private training sessions (approx 1hr in duration) 

  • Learning the most up-to-date dog training methods such as luring, using marker-reward systems, leash pressure, counter conditioning, reward timing and frequency, and much more!

  • Use the techniques above to communicate clear expectations to your dog in the home and out in public

  •  Develop real confidence and trust in your canine companion


Aggression, Anxiety and Fearfulness

We have extensive experience with aggression, anxiety and fearfulness and it is our belief that every dog deserves a second chance.   Aggression or fear does not go away with time and often it gets worse if not addressed.  

With our experience, compassion and patience we will use counter-conditioning, responsible management, and desentisation to teach your dog how to behave around possible triggers.  We will also train advanced off-leash obedience; an obedient dog is a safe dog.

Although we cannot change a dogs personality (and we wouldn't want to), the goal of this program is to give your dog familiar routines that provide comfort even in unfamiliar circumstances or environments. With each dog having individual personalities, drives and motivations please feel free to take advantage of a free phone consultation to allow us to assess the severities of these behaviours and advise accordingly.  

Group Classes

Group classes in 2023 will be held in 2 locations: Georgina (De La Salle Chapel) and Manilla (Manilla Community Hall). Please use our booking system below to see exact time, dates and locations.

All-age Dog Training Group Classes will consist of a group-learning environment where participants will learn how to establish leadership and teach their dogs the 6 critical skills that allow dogs to behave and thrive in any environment. We offer on-leash dog training classes and off-leash classes
