Mike Burns of Dogtooth Construction is as honest a person and homebuilder you’ll ever find. He truly is a 6-star builder in a 5-star world.

Not only was our house finished on time and budget, Mike and his crew managed to add some “well if it was my house, here’s what I would do” tweaks to our original plan that showed they really did care about building the best house possible for us. For that and the friendship we have maintained ever since, we are truly grateful.

Every time someone asks us what its like to work with Dogtooth, we tell them, “You’ll get much more than you expect”.


My wife and I used Dogtooth for the construction of three individual lodges.  Mike was exceptionally helpful through the design and build stages and has continued to offer advice and support for ongoing improvements and maintenance. During the build process Dogtooth delivered on time, and on budget.  It was for these reasons that we re-hired Mike and his team each time we started a new lodge build. We continue to use Dogtooth for construction projects we have and would recommend them to anyone.

Dogtooth Construction delivered our custom home on time and under budget as detailed in budget and forecast reviews with Mike and his team which is amazing in this day and age.

Dogtooth Construction are a fully integrated custom home builder and not many people know they’re equipped with a large cabinet making workshop that has the ability to tackle any sized project. Having built and purchased many homes in Western Canada the Dogtooth team are the most highly skilled , hard working and detailed orientated individuals I’ve encountered and they are a credit to themselves the industry, Golden community and Canadian construction.

For our family home they built the entire house including all the custom cabinetry. Exceptional!

At the end of it all, we gained new friends at Dogtooth, Mike and family and the employees. We ended up with the cabin of our dreams, every idea we had Dogtooth was able to put into reality. Visitors walk into the back door of the cabin and just stand in awe, it happens all the time. We and Dogtooth successfully implemented ideas, finishing, design and processes not so easily accomplished or seen. A Company to have the fortitude, patience to see this to fruition. Construction can be painful and get worse from there. This one was all good, from start to quick finish, no worries.
