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 Clients Are Saying:

My big triumph was on the beach two weeks ago. Arwyn gets to be off leash at the beach (she's been on the long line on forest hikes for months now) and there was a deer eating seaweed... the dogs, of course, blasted off after the deer up the steep bank... I called... AND THEY CAME BACK!! A miracle. Well, the miracle of training.

Amazing is the only way we can describe the transformation with our very reactive dog. Levi, our 5 year old Duck Toller, had taken the Foundations training and walked nicely on a leash. However he started to react to bikes and it got worse as time went by. When he saw a bike go by our happy-go-lucky dog turned into a monster. He would bark, lunge, and do the famous 'duck toller scream'. He was totally uncontrollable. We were very much afraid that if he ever got off leash he would attack the cyclist. It was very stressfull for both us and Levi. We decided to ask Lisbeth for help. With a few private lessons and practice Levi is a changed dog. The other day a cyclist came up behind us and rode within two feet of Levi and he only turned his head to look for a treat. Amazing! We can't thank you enough Lisbeth and Levi thanks you too.
