Cowichan Canine Classes

Puppy Start Right Classes

The early puppyhood socialization period is a critical and finite period of time during which puppies are developmentally open to new experiences.

   

Pet Manners Classes

Reactive Dog Classes

For owners who have dogs with "issues". Dogs that have been labelled "aggressive" or "fearful".

Canine Good Neighbour

Cowichan Canine offers prep classes for the official Canine Good Neighbour test for all levels of student skills.

   

Carting Class

Large dogs have historically been used for carting work, taking goods to market, moving firewood or other supplies around the farm, or even pulling people.

   

Play Groups

Get together with other dogs for a fun play session. We also offer Toy Breed and Senior socials!

 

   

Rally Obedience 

This is a sport that you can enjoy simply because you wish to teach your dog to heel nicely and reliably, or because you wish to compete and earn titles.

   

Scent Detection

Dogs learn to systematically search boxes and other objects, including vehicles, for hidden scent.

 
 
 

Behaviour Evaluation Session

If in doubt of which of our training services would suit your dog the best, private training or classes, we offer a Behaviour Evaluation. If you are that are interested in our Reactive Dog Programme, Day Training or Board & Train, this evaluation is compulsory.

The Behaviour Evaluation consists of

- One 20-30 mins Zoom session, where we go through a 16-page Behaviour Information Form that you will have completed ahead of time; and

- One 20-30 mins in-person session, where we meet your dog and assess his or her behaviour with other dogs, people or other triggers.

- We then discuss and decide together how we can best help your dog based on our findings and your time and budget constraints.

 

Once we receive your payment, we will send you the Behaviour Information Form and contact you to set up the two sessions.

What Clients Are Saying:

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.

I enjoyed working with Bev and Laurie. The small classes and individual attention really make a big difference. There were a couple of moments in Foundations when you said "Click!" (and I did - yeah me...) at precisely the right moment for me to 'get it'. As a result, we went from Vita pulling like a fiend to polite walking in literally 2 classes. And getting the mechanics of Leave It/Take It down on my part (thank you again), helped me sort that one out in 3 or 4 sessions at home. We have, as you know, moved on to agility; Vita is having fun and is getting more confident and spirited with each class.
