Cowichan Canine Classes

Puppy Start Right Programme

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

   

Foundation Programme

A comprehensive pet manners programme for all dogs over 17 weeks of age! No upper age limit!

   

Reactive Dog Programme

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

 

   
 

Agility

We offer agility classes for all levels of students skills, even for puppies!

   
   

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:

We enrolled our dog Xena in the basic Foundations course. Cowichan Canine provided professional and usable training for us. Our trainer Stephanie is an amazingly patient and knowledgeable instructor. The small class size was ideal and we always were able to get the attention and training instruction we needed. I would highly recommend Cowichan Canone to any dog owner who wants to improve the behaviour of their dog. We will be enrolling Xena in more classes in the near future.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about cowichan canine!!! My pup went through the puppy start right and then onto the foundation classes. Stef and Stephanie were fantastic!!! Both classes are well run, organized, they are excellent teachers and spend time with you and your dog. The class sizes are small which makes an excellent learning facility. Stef and Stephanie are patient and kind. The knowledge is second to none. You are able to ask questions and have one on one time as necessary. Did I mention how clean the facility is...? Holy you'd never know dogs are there all day. We wanted to give our pup his best chance and cowichan canine certainly facilitated that.
