Manvinder Toor was charged with several counts under the Animal Protection Act and the Criminal Code for wilfully causing unnecessary pain, suffering and injury to an animal.
He was fined $3,000 and has been prohibited from owning an animal for 4 years.
Court heard that witnesses observed the man striking a pit-bull puppy repeatedly in March 2012.
The dog was taken into the care of the Calgary Humane Society and officials say it will get a fresh start in a new adoptive home.
