Stubborn Dog!

Is your dog ignoring you? Not listening? Blowing you off? Doing his own thing? Coming when called sometimes, slowly and sometimes not at all? Walking on a loose leash some times, and pulling at other times? Sometimes even refusing to walk? Refusing to sit or lie down?

Then this two-hour workshop is for you!

We will discuss the issues and challenges associated with training a dog that is a reluctant learner, and practice exercises that promote changing your dog's mindset to becoming an ENTHUSIASTIC LEARNER.

Topics covered will include:

- why dogs are "stubborn"

- identifying and repairing "poisoned cues"

- identifying motivators

- building reliable behaviours

 

NOTE

This workshop is NOT for dogs that have social issues (fear, aggression, reactivity) around other dogs or people. If that is the case, you may attend as an "auditor".

IMPORTANT: Students that are new to Cowichan Canine will be required to sign a liability waiver upon arrival and provide documentation for their dog of vaccination for parvo and distemper, no older than 3 years, or titer test no older than 12 months. Without this documentation, your dog cannot enter the premises and your fee will be forfeit.

Location: Cowichan Canine Training Centre
106-5301 Chaster Road, Duncan

What Clients Are Saying:

I have taken my Pembroke Welsh Corgi through Puppy Classes, The Foundation Programme, Starters Agility and we are now in Advanced Agility. The overall results have been excellent. Reba is now competing at Agility Trials and will soon move from Starters there to Advanced. Lisbeth, Bev, and Karen helped immensely along the way, but Reba's Agility success is solely due to Jody. She is amazing in so many ways - knowledgeable, patient, able to adapt her communication to different clients at different levels beautifully, and so much more. She is encouraging and Reba runs to see her when we attend class. A big Paws Up to Jody and CC.

I just wanted to touch base with you and give a big THANK YOU for your help with Kaiya. Kaiya is such a great dog. My mom and Step-dad came to visit last week, and they got on with Kaiya like gang-busters! She gave a few little grumbles to my step-dad the first evening when he was in the house, and then nothing. One walk and she fell in love with a few more family members. We still plan to continue Kaiya's training as discussed. Matt has worked with her so well that he takes her out into the big fields here and plays fetch with her off leash! I was very impressed.
