Our House

The global Dog Brothers community consists of adult martial artists who practice the methodology for fighting full contact with blunt impact developed over 30 years ago by the original Founding Dog Brothers.  See the DogBrothers USA site for history and details.

In Canada, following the dictum “Our house, our rules”, the Dog Brothers Canada community abides by its own principles for its DB fighters and for conduct at its sanctioned fighting events – while maintaining the high standards and original intentions of the DB Founders.


The Dog Brothers Canada community is led by the Alpha, Beta, and Elder of the Canadian Pack.  The Alpha manages the affairs of the DBC internally, backed up by the Beta and advised by the Elder. The ABE liaises to the other Dog Brothers fighter communities and represents the DBC to the world, as required.

Each year, at the annual Canadian Open Gathering, a ranked member of the DBC community is elected to lead the Canadian Pack as Alpha. The Alpha from the previous year moves to the Beta role. The Elder is the DBC member who currently is a member of the international DB Council of Elders and remains constant from year to year.

The 2021/2022 ABE:

  • Alpha – Chili Pepper Dog – alpha@dogbrothers.ca
  • Beta – Ice Dog – beta@dogbrothers.ca
  • Elder – Sled Dog – elder@dogbrothers.ca
