Cowichan Canine Programmes

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 Basics Programme

Basic pet manners for all dogs over 17 weeks of age!

     

Reactive Dog Programme

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

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.

   

FOCUS Class

Increasing your dog’s motivation and desire to work with you through a series of exercises and games. 

   

Outdoor Play Group

Get together with other dogs for a fun play session. 

 

   

Rally Obedience 

This is a relatively new 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.

   

Tricks Class

There is no better way to get attention and yummy treats and it’s sooo much fun!

   

Outdoor MANNERS

We practice Polite Walking, Come When Called and related skills in an outdoor environment full of distractions!

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.

Lisbeth -I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that Lexy is doing great. We are so proud of her. In the last month it seems like she has realized that life is ok here and she doesn’t have to worry anymore. Resource guarding gone. No more worried looks. Even the door is ok now. When familiar people come she doesn’t even bother getting off the couch anymore and minimal barking with any other comings and goings. I have had her off leash a fair bit and she listens when I call her. And she regularly turns around to see where I am. Best of all, she loves to swim and she loves the sailboat. Thanks for all your help – Warm regards from us and Lexy !!
