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

Reactive Dog Programme

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!

 

   
   

Service Dog Programme

Prepare your dog for the BC Guide Dog and Service Dog Assessment. 

 

   
   

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:

Dear Lisbeth, With lots of practice through your guidence and instructions, I am beyond excited and pleased to inform you that Tina has conquered her fear of brooms and mops! It took about a month, slow consistent practicing and desensitizing, and I am now at a stage where Tina literally follows me around, tail wagging and smiles, while I clean the floors! Another fear checked off the list! Thank you so very much for your continued support throughout our journey. With the private training we took with you, then Confidence Class, and now Agility with amazing Glenda- Tina has turned into this confident, joyful, and content little dog that just loves life. School is Tina's absolute favorite thing and I am so glad to have found Cowichan Canine. Thank you for everything, to both you and Glenda for all fun we get to learn and experience. Tina's quality of life she so very much deserves just keeps getting better and better!
