SEMINAR: Safe Dog Play

Have you considered taking your dog to a dog park, but aren't sure if you should? Are dog parks safe? Are you sometimes not quite sure if your dog should be meeting that other dog or not? If they are playing appropriately, or not? What happens when my dog meets the "wrong" dog? What should I do?

The safety and enjoyment of dog-dog interactions depend on one thing - owner education.

This presentation will help you learn how to recognize red flags and when to step in and help your dog out of a risky situation. It includes live-action video clips to illustrate not only different canine communications, but also show the speed at which these things can change. You will learn how to be a better observer of your dog and to improve your understanding of your dog. The presentation is followed by a Q & A session.

"Safe Dog Play" is recommended for all dog owners!

What Clients Are Saying:

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

I enjoyed working with Bev and Laurie. The small classes and individual attention really make a big difference. There were a couple of moments in Foundations when you said "Click!" (and I did - yeah me...) at precisely the right moment for me to 'get it'. As a result, we went from Vita pulling like a fiend to polite walking in literally 2 classes. And getting the mechanics of Leave It/Take It down on my part (thank you again), helped me sort that one out in 3 or 4 sessions at home. We have, as you know, moved on to agility; Vita is having fun and is getting more confident and spirited with each class.
