What Clients Are Saying:

Karen is an awesome teacher. She is caring, gentle and patient. She gave me a little extra time tohelp me because I am hard of hearing and have great difficulty hearing in class. Because of her, Monkey flourished under her care. Thank you, Karen, for all your help!

We have taken two dogs through Puppy Playgroup & Foundation. We are so pleased with how socialized our dogs are and well behaved. The methods that the trainers use at Cowichan Canine are amazing and we have to admit when we first started we didn’t think it would work with Siberian Huskies, not only did it work but one graduated with honours and the other was pretty darn close! Far exceeded our expectations of when we started the course. The Foundation class with Stephanie was absolutely brilliant and the dogs adored her. She was a wizard in convincing our very stubborn girl to actually want to play to learn! We wished they offered an advanced Foundation class to keep us coming back! We have signed up for the beginners scent detection so we are very excited to start a new chapter with our girls J January 20, 2018
