Buyer Beware! It's an Unregulated Industry!

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 classes 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, 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

My dog Evan is so lucky that I attended the Impulse workshop tonight!!! More knowledge was obtained by me in this fun and enjoyable class to help him live a happy and doglfull life with the humans. Thanks Lisbeth for sharing what you know.

Today I was paid the ultimate compliment by Lisbeth Plant, owner of Cowichan Canine. She said I had helped my puppy Daphne (now 6 months old) develop into a really nice young dog. I agree! But of course I could not have done it without the wonderful folks at Cowichan Canine: professional, caring, knowledgeable and a bonus - all with a great sense of humour! Lisbeth, Stephanie, Andrea, Glenda and Steph all continue to help me guide Daphne and I am so grateful for their help, knowledge and kindness and for occasionally talking me down from a proverbial cliff! How lucky we are here in the Cowichan valley to have access to a full spectrum of resources to help guide and develop our dogs into the best they can be! Let the learning (and fun) continue!
