Words cannot express how highly we recommend Colette of Prairie Creek Cane Corso and cannot imagine buying a dog from anyone else but her. Our first Cane Corso came from a backyard breeder and we dearly paid the price for it. It ended up being 3 years of utter turmoil and heartbreak with a Femoral Head Ostectomy at 6 months old, a torn ACL that required 2 plates and 14 screws to repair at 18 months and Grand Mal Epilepsy that eventually claimed his life.
Colette came highly recommended to us by a reputable breeder as we searched tirelessly for a healthy pup to fill our void. If there is one person who is committed to the success and strengthening of the breed, that person is Colette. She works diligently with her dogs and strives for nothing less than perfection. Not one day has gone by since we picked up our Dolce that we haven’t interacted with Colette in some way. I can confidently attest to the fact that she devotes her life to education, research and the overall well being of these dogs.
Colette has really exceeded all of our expectations in regards to what a RESPONSIBLE breeder is. She has stood by us every step of the way with food recommendations, supplement information, breed education, training education and has the expertise to guide us in our journey with our Dolce.
Colette is no longer just our breeder, she has become a part of our family and we are forever grateful to have her in our lives.

Top of the line breeder. Helped with every question we had and set everything up for our boy Odin. Amazing temperament for having 4 kids in the house 1 being a newborn. Could not have been any smoother and less stressful. Her puppies are top of the line as are her own corso’s and she spends the time to make sure you get the puppy that is right for you. I would not hesitate to buy another cane corso from Colette.
To say Prairie Creek Cane Corso is a responsible breeder would be a huge understatement. Colette sets the standard for outstanding commitment and dedication as a breeder. From our first conversation to present Colette has devoted herself to ensuring every step of the process is a positive experience. She took every opportunity to address questions, concerns and to educate us what to expect and continues to provide ongoing support. Colette exercises due diligence to make sure each pup is matched with the perfect home. Apollo has been everything we asked for and has exceeded our expectations. We are grateful everyday that we found Prairie Creek Cane Corso. Colette’s devotion to the Cane Corso, her dogs and her pups is second to none. There truly isn’t a better place to acquire your next companion.

It took me a while to write this .. only because words can’t describe what a gift we have been given, not only our pup but the guidance that Colette has provided. There wasn’t a question unanswered a stone unturned if I needed her she was definitely there, and still is. She is knowledgeable, passionate, dedicated, educated I could go on. She has carefully selected the best parents for these pups and the quality and temperament of her dogs speak volumes. I have 5 kids of all ages youngest 3 oldest 25 and my dog is amazing with all of them. Definitely raised well.. when I brought my dog home I felt that I could just enjoy her. She was so well behaved and primarily trained. The first weeks are so important for these dogs with socialization and the love they receive. Colette has gone beyond what an amazing breeder could ever do and I thank her for the experience of owning our lovely Lottie!!

Prairie Creek Cane Corso was by far the best breeder I could have hoped for. I looked at a lot of breeders and none of them really met my standards and expectations. Incredibly knowledgeable and always has the dogs best interests at heart. The dogs are more than well taken care of, they start them off with a great base of training and socializing. The temperament of the dogs are amazing. This has been obvious in our training sessions and the dog responds so well to everything thrown at her. 100% recommend Prairie Creek!
Where to begin. Our experience with Prairie Creek Cane Corso was wonderful from the first time we communicated with Colette to the day we picked up our pup, to now with all of the continued communication, support and the incredible dog that has BOLDLY joined our family.
Colette holds a very high standard for each of her litters and does the work to assure that each approved home gets a pup that is suited to their lifestyle and needs. The time and dedication that goes into the pups initial 8 weeks of life until they go to their forever homes is incredible, each undergoing the puppy culture program which prepares them for various situations and starts them off on the right paw. Upon receiving our pup we couldn’t help but notice her stable temperament and willingness to work and follow our instruction. You can clearly see how much each Prairie Creek Cane Corso pup is cared for, respected, guided and hand selected for preservation of the breed overall, this shows so clearly in each pup and those who have found their forever home within Colette's home.
As a young and growing family with a brand new baby, it was very important that we were matched with a pup that would respect us, look to us for guidance, and have a very calm demeanor. This is exactly what we received and we continue to be impressed. The continued support that Colette has provided is extremely valued and appreciated with a breed that can be challenging but very rewarding and worth the effort when handled appropriately, which Colette provides guidance and instruction to achieve. We would most definitely recommend Prairie Creek Cane Corso to anyone looking to invest in a high quality, well bred and exceptional dog.
THANK YOU so very much Colette and family for all of your work, research, dedication and love of this breed and most importantly for our Prim, we couldn’t be more appreciative of what you have done to provide us with a remarkable pup that we are looking forward to watch mature.

All I can say is Colette and the dedication that she puts into her breeding program is phenomenal and reflected in each and every puppy.
I have always loved the Corso breed. I, like many people, spent hours researching the breed and breeders. After going back and forth with various breeders, I finally found Colette at Prairie Creek Cane Corso. She was patient with all my questions, listened to me tell my endless stories of my previous Corso, and reassured me over and over and over. I finally found someone who was interested in placing the right puppy with me instead of simply making a sale. I placed a deposit and then waited, and waited, and waited for my puppy to finally arrive. The 8-month wait was definitely worth it!!!!
The puppy I received was everything I wanted and more. I picked up an eight-week old puppy and fell completely in love. The time and effort Colette spends with each puppy shows. She truly knows her puppies and makes sure they are going to the right homes for both the family and the puppy. Jaxx is as well-adjusted as any puppy I have ever met. As an example, at six months of age, I can count the accidents he had in the house on one hand. He is great with my family including my two nephews who are currently four and two years old. We recently started handling classes and obedience training. The instructors, and I are amazed with his “I got this!” attitude. He is eager to please and a quick learner.
I could not be happier with my boy. Colette continues to provide advice and assistance as anything comes up. She has been my number one resource when it comes to everything, from food recommendations, to vet care, to general knowledge. She knows her breed and wants what is best for each puppy. After my previous experiences with breeders, I would only recommend Prairie Creek Cane Corso.
I got a male from her in the summer of 2019 - one year later, I can firmly attest to the stable temperament and perfect health of my dog. He is an excellent working specimen who blended into our family (which includes two young children) effortlessly.
Our Corso is intelligent, athletic, handsome, sweet and social. Furthermore he has impeccable discernment abilities, natural at protection and has a fantastic ‘traditional Corsi temperament’. He works hard and loves his family even harder. You couldn’t get a better representation of the breed than from Prairie Creek.
In addition, I must add that Colette is an exemplary breeder who is passionate about the goal of bettering the breed. Her treatment of her own Corsi, and their puppies, is the ‘golden standard’ that few, if any, can come close to. I found her to be highly knowledgeable, approachable and professional. She was, and continues to be, a huge support - from conception to present day. I actually enjoy staying in touch with her and found the breeder / owner relationship to be appropriate and comfortable.
I will 100% be getting another Corso from her, and will likely be a lifetime customer as I cannot imagine owning another breed again.
Thank you for giving me my best friend Colette. He is everything (and more!) what a true Cane Corso should be.
Very nice program you have there at Prairie Creek CC. From confirmation, workability, to proper structure, to excellent temperament, overall a very sound, great representation of the breed. As a trainer, breeder and owner of this breed myself for over 20 years now, I can honestly say the pups that have come thru our training facility are some of the best I’ve seen in the same amount of time, and I’ve seen and trained a lot of Corso in my time. Keep up the great work Colette and hope to see more of your pups in training here.
Prim is a prime example of an all around excellent representative of the breed. Her workability is second to none, and her nerves are super sound. I can already put a clatter stick over head while on the bite, and she don’t change her grip !! Lots of adults even take time to get to that stage, shows the excellent genetics, and the program you introduced them to as young pups shines thru. Not only that but you paired her up with an amazing owner/handler in Brooke! Her handling skills are fantastic for a working dog and I can see a bright future for them if they pursue any type of working venues.

From the very first time I reached out to Colette while researching getting a Cane Corso, she was incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming. Upon meeting her and her dogs, it was clearly evident that she puts her whole heart and soul into her dogs and her breeding program.
When it comes to her adults, Colette is always training and competing with them in different sports, enabling them to fulfill their working breed purpose. Their temperaments are incredibly stable and health is a top priority.
Colette raises her puppies using the Puppy Culture program and it is amazing to watch the puppies' development day by day. She does everything she can to produce the healthiest puppies of both body and mind and she makes sure to match you to a puppy that will best suit your goals and lifestyle.
I got my boy, Atlas, in August 2020, and couldn't have been happier with how easily he adjusted, how socialized he was and how happy he was/is to learn! I am looking forward to seeing everything him and I can accomplish together as he grows. Colette is always available to guide you and give advice, and it is obvious just how much she loves every puppy that leaves her home. I not only gained a dog from her, but also a wonderful friendship.
I can't recommend Colette and her breeding program enough! She truly sets you and your puppy up for a lifetime of success together.

Prairie Creek Cane Corso are phenomenal breeders. They are extremely responsible and very caring. They are a very modest family oriented breeder. They welcome potential owners to their home to meet their dogs and you get to see first hand well behaved and friendly ambassadors of the breed!
My husband and I had the pleasure of knowing them before we were even thinking about adding to our family. So we know personally what great people they are! I was looking for a puppy to keep me company while my husband is away for work and also to help me feel safe being by myself. And this breed fit that mold.
I was looking for a responsible breeder who had a few great quality litters a year and one who did genetic testing to screen problems common to the breed. And they do all of that and so much more. I can’t imagine getting a puppy from anyone else.
One of the many reasons that I picked Prairie Creek is because Colette was a thoughtful communicator right from the very beginning and we had meaningful conversations about her dogs. I could tell that she genuinely cared for her dogs as family members. And when I would reach out to ask questions the support that I have received and am still receiving is priceless. Every question has been answered and if the answer was unknown by her, she would research with her tight network until the question was answered.
The time and effort that Colette put into each litter is the number one reason that I will be getting another puppy from her. She goes above and beyond what most breeders do in my opinion. She sets her owners up for success to bring their little ones home with a great starter base in manners and training that’s easy to grow on. The puppies are temperament tested so you leave with the right puppy for your family.
My pup is a beautiful example of her amazing genetics. I could write a novel about my girl, she’s happy, confident, gorgeous, a spitfire and a million other things. I can’t say enough about her!
I also know that Colette’s dogs deserve extremely committed families who will be responsible in every way. Unfortunately that doesn’t describe just any owner. If you are willing to realize that you are getting a guardian breed that needs training and socializing and understand that they need to be part of the family then I absolutely recommend Colette exclusively but if it’s all about looks or your ego or if you call yourself a fur parent then this is NOT the breed or breeder for you!!
I would like to thank Colette and her family for the roles that they’ve play in our lives for entrusting us with our cherished girl! We can’t imagine our lives without her and it’s a privilege and a honor to be her owners, even though she the one that is watching out for us. We are extremely grateful for everything!
We had done extensive research on the breed and breeders prior to finally getting our pup from Prairie Creek Cane Corso.
Colette is experienced, dedicated, knowledgeable and has such a pure love for her dogs. She was in constant communication with us throughout the entire process, and to this day she takes lifetime breeder support to another level.
We fully trust her and knew she would pair us with the right pup for our family, and she sure did! Our boy is constantly turning heads, not only because of his true Cane Corso appearance, but because of his calm and balanced temperament.
The research and time that she puts into her pack and puppies is unmatched. We are so thankful for Colette and her family for setting our boy up for success from the very beginning.

It took us three years to decide what breed of dog best suited us for our lifestyle. Once we decided on the Cane Corso we began the hunt for the right breeder, prepared to purchase a pup anywhere in Canada. We reviewed a number of breeders and after a number of emails and chats back and forth with Colette from Prairie Creek Cane Corso our decision was easy. The amazing experiences Colette shared with us through video , pictures and numerous posts made this journey very special for the two of us. Being able to watch Rocky and the puppies almost daily provided an experience we have never had from any other breeder we have purchased from. It was very evident how much training and exposure Colette put into these puppies as the transition and training at home has been very smooth. Thank you Colette for your passion of this wonderful breed and sharing that passion with us. You are a great breeder and a wonderful person.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with getting our family member from Colette. Through the whole process she is truly passionate and knowledgeable about this beautiful breed. We personally met all the dogs and were so excited to be getting a pup from prairie creek. Our amazing grey pooch is named Nero and he is truly the family dog we were hoping to get. Colette is passionate, devoted and caring. I do not think you could get a Cane Corso from a better program in all of Canada.

We fell in love with this breed while raising our last dog. However, he was not responsibly bred and had double elbow dysplasia, surgery and a lifetime of osteoarthritis and expensive therapy and medications. We were determined to find a breeder who carefully bred the dogs with their health and temperament in mind. After a long, extensive search, we found Colette. From the first phone conversation, Colette listened to our concerns and took the time to explain her breeding practices and welcomed us to meet her dogs before making a decision. I also respected the fact that she doesn't place her puppies with just anyone. She makes the effort to place the right puppy with the right home. Colette has been so supportive during the whole process, including offering advise on training, nutrition and care. The Prairie Creek Cane Corso family is an added benefit as the members support each other in the good moments and the frustrating ones. I am so grateful for Stella and the head start that Colette provided for her.

When we were looking for a companion for our son who has autism I was so hung up on a St. Bernard, my husband was set on a cane corso. I wanted a big calm dog to help our son with his emotions. After a few conversations with Colette and being apart of the corso family page on Facebook we were hooked! Colette is the reason we chose this breed. She goes over and beyond for these dogs. The fact that she gets each pup temp tested and chooses the right pup for your and your family really made me realize how amazing she truly is! My husband is already talking about getting another pup from Colette. ♥️♥️
