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



What's New?
What Clients Are Saying:

I found COWICHAN CANINE by accident. It was the best accident I ever had. CC above all has made me a better and more aware pet owner. They have opened my eyes farther than I thought I could see. I am grateful for my new knowledge and grateful That my puppy/dog will have the best education to guide him through his life happily. Thank you Lisbeth Jody Glenda Stephanie and especially Nancy for immediately catching my errors.

Chewie and I just finished the Foundation Programme, with distinction, in 7 weeks. We would not have been able to accomplish this if it wasn't for the team of ladies at Cowichan Canine. Chewie is James and my first puppy, and we were pretty clueless. Thanks to the guidance of Bev, Karen and Lisbeth we are proud of our dog, but also of the "puppy parents" we have become. We hope to continue our education at Cowichan Canine, and we recommend the training facility to anyone who owns a dog. And it all started with the Puppy Socialization class! Thank you so much!
