Cowichan Canine Programmes

Puppy Start Right Programme

The early puppyhood socialization period is a critical and finite period of time during which puppies are developmentally open to new experiences.

     

Foundation Basics Programme

Basic pet manners for all dogs over 17 weeks of age!

     

Reactive Dog Programme

For owners who have dogs with "issues". Dogs that have been labelled "aggressive" or "fearful".

 

   

General Classes

Agility

We offer agility classes for all levels of students skills, even for puppies!

     
   

Canine Good Neighbour

Cowichan Canine offers prep classes for the official Canine Good Neighbour test for all levels of student skills.

   

Carting Class

Large dogs have historically been used for carting work, taking goods to market, moving firewood or other supplies around the farm, or even pulling people.

   

FOCUS Class

Increasing your dog’s motivation and desire to work with you through a series of exercises and games. 

   

Outdoor Play Group

Get together with other dogs for a fun play session. 

 

   

Rally Obedience 

This is a relatively new sport that you can enjoy simply because you wish to teach your dog to heel nicely and reliably, or because you wish to compete and earn titles.

   

Scent Detection

Dogs learn to systematically search boxes and other objects, including vehicles, for hidden scent.

   
 

Solve-It

Do you find yourself thinking "But he knows this"? Is your dog getting tired of the training, getting bored and walking away? Is your dog becoming stressed or over-aroused during training? Is your dog being stubborn? If you have a training challenge, in class or at home, this is the class for you!

   

Tricks Class

There is no better way to get attention and yummy treats and it’s sooo much fun!

   

Outdoor MANNERS

We practice Polite Walking, Come When Called and related skills in an outdoor environment full of distractions!

 

 

What's New?
What Clients Are Saying:

I don’t know if you remember Poppy but she was the small terrier that I did private training one on one to help her get over her fear of dogs. Well she is 13 months old now and loves meeting new dogs, she can’t get enough of it. She goes to doggie daycare on Saturdays because I have a long work shift and loves going there so she can play with all the other dogs. Anyways, I thought you would like to hear a good success story!

I sincerely want to thank all the trainers who worked with us on training our newest member of the family, Mila. Actually it was training us but we won't admit to that!! We had the privilege of working with Karen, Jody, Glenda, Bev and Lisbeth in our Foundation Classes. Every trainer took an active role in helping us achieve success. We felt that they were as excited with our small steps towards success as we were! The training program was so well laid out with the book, clickers, backpack and superb teachers that it made it easy to be successful if you were willing to put in the time. It also made it fun! There is a saying "it takes a village or community to raise a child". We think the saying could say "it takes Cowichan Canine to help raise a dog". We are now hoping to continue with agility classes and maybe even try the scent class. Thank you again
