Play Groups

Toy Breed Play Group  - For dogs over 17 weeks and up to 15 lbs. 

Outdoor Play Group - For dog over 17 weeks (see the Puppy Start Right Programme if your dog is under 17 weeks).

Senior's Social - For older, more sedate dog who would still like to get out for a sniff and wander with like minded friends.

 

For current or past student dogs.

We meet in Cobble Hill for outdoor play off-leash. Bring a towel and dress for the weather, including boots if it's wet - since this is Vancouver Island, that probably means most of the time!

You should be comfortable with having your dog off leash in an unfenced area, or you can remain in the fenced field or walk your dog on a long line (no flexi leads, please!).

Dogs must be over 17 weeks of age, be happy and relaxed around other dogs and people and have a good recall, or be prepared to spend the hour in a fenced field.

Fee: TBPG - $6 per 1/2 hour. Senior's Social, $5, ODPG $11.50 per hour. All playgroups need to be prepaid please. We have punch cards for sets of 10 playgroups or  you can pre-purchase any number from 1 + as you wish. 

Sign up online as usual.

What Clients Are Saying:

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!

I just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Jody worked with us and our puppy over the month of August, and she was absolutely excellent. The private training was the perfect choice to address our specific questions and learn about returning to Alberta with the pup, and how to help her adjust. We look forward to more training next summer at the lake! Jody has such a wonderful attitude toward the training, and we felt very confident with our plan for introducing our puppy to Alberta. The introduction to our neighbour dog (the one who charges and barks as his "greeting") was perfect. We did a parallel walk across the green space, then got closer and used treats from me for both dogs. There was no charging, and they are now well introduced and quite good pals already!
