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 demeanour. 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.
All my best,
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.
