Continued Success Through Reward Based Training

In an unregulated industry, who are you going to trust with your dog?

At Cowichan Canine we provide modern, science-based training for dogs by accredited instructors. This means positive reinforcement methods only, using rewards like food, treats and play. We do not use aversive methods or harsh corrections or subscribe to outmoded and discredited concepts such as dominance theory.

Established in 2009 and with almost 3000 clients to date, we have a purpose-built training facility in Cobble Hill, BC, and offer a range of services.

Our programmes help puppies and young dogs get the best possible start in life, as well as dogs of all ages gain a foundation of good manners. You can further develop the bond with your dog via a variety of fun, enrichment activities such as our supervised play groups, canine tricks, carting, agility, and scent work.

We offer small, personalized classes, and rolling enrolment and online booking means there is no waiting to get started. We also offer workshops and seminars, and private training and behaviour modification consultations with a certified behaviour consultant.

We are active in the community and support PACTA BC, Dog Bite Prevention Education, Cowichan WAGS 4H and Cowichan & District SPCA. 

 

 

Our training centre is located at 1462 Mile End Road, Cobble Hill, BC.

What Clients Are Saying:

Hi Bev – I thought I’d let you know that Cody’s behaviour has been absolutely stellar since we graduated Foundations. We’ve been doing quite a bit of off leash walking, and he is suddenly paying so much more attention, coming when he is called – even if he’s playing with other dogs – I can hardly believe it! Thanks again for all your help. Looking forward to seeing more info on Advanced Clicker and the other course you mentioned (good neighbor?) in October.

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.
