Katie

As with many of our employees, Katie first came to Cowichan Canine to train her dog. She completed both the Puppy Start Right Program and the Foundation Basics Program. By the time Katie and her dog, Bernie, were ready to Graduate, they were headed into the office to learn the ins and outs of admin. Katie recently graduated from UVIC with a BA in Political Science and has since moved back to the Cowichan Valley to be closer to her family. During this time home, her family fostered a pregnant dog from a local rescue. The dog ended up having 11 puppies! One of which Katie adopted—Bernie! Bernie often accompanies Katie in the office, so feel free to stop by and say hello to the pair next time you’re here.

What Clients Are Saying:

Hello Cowichan Canine, We thought you might enjoy an update on Sigrid. We went to the Port Alberni Sanction Match. We are so thankful we did Puppy Start Right and are in Foundations 1. The training really pulled together in this environment. Sigrid experienced crating, grooming, strange people touching and examining, strange dogs, a new place with strange acoustics, angry dogs, scared dogs, new commands, and a show lead. Her socialization has given her confidence in spades! She handled it all like a champ and she truly enjoyed herself as we were hoping she would. We could not have done this without the foundations training to settle and also to pay attention in a distracting environment. It was helpful for her to be used to coexisting next to other focused dogs without greeting. Thank you so much for all she is learning. Cait & Jess

Hello Cowichan Canine Team! My Kooikerhondje, Buddy, and I have just completed the beginner Foundation training course. The whole process has been fantastic. Buddy is a very smart (of course) and overenthusiastic pup. My goal with him was to nip problems in the bud (pardon the pun:) to start on a path to a positive and calm relationship. We had the privilege of learning under Jody, Karen and Lisbeth in Prep school. All had different styles but their methods were consistent, positive, sound and they work! Buddy and I then moved on to Beginner Foundation under Stephanie's tutelage. Her guidance was patient, kind and empathetic. I was the slower learner, but Stephanie showed me what Buddy was capable of and gave me the knowledge,tools and insight to meet my goals. The facility is top-class, well-equipped, spotless and safe. Learning at Cowichan Canine was the most enriching investment I could have made and I hope to continue in various activities in the future. Thank you all!
