What Clients Are Saying:

Our little Frenchton, Blaze, graduated from the Foundations class today with Honours. The training we received was top notch, excellent quality, and fun. We appreciated the often humorous comments thrown into our training from Karen and Stephanie, as well as the clear, easy to understand aspects of this training program. We have already introduced Blaze to Scent Detection and Agility and will continue on with these in the fall. We truly appreciate the care and commitment our instructors gave in the training of our Blaze, and of ourselves! Who knew we had so much to learn, too! :) Thank you, Karen and Stephanie! We will definitely be referring others to Cowichan Canine.

Hi there, Ed and I are doing pretty good. The vet is tackling his some health issues and Ed seems to be much happier overall with summer being here. He's even willing to roll on his back and let me rub his tummy now which I think is a good sign of our improved relationship. Anyone I talk to about Ed gets a big recommendation from me regarding Cowichan Canine. I sing your praises every chance I get since I know that I would be in a pretty bad situation without your help every step of Ed's development. Thanks so much for all the education that I needed and all of the fun times as well
