Confidence Building

Is your dog:

- worried about new places or new things?

- easily stressed?

- sensitive to noises?

- "not interested" in training?

- shutting down?

- generally nervous or timid?

BUT NOT reactive to dogs or people?

Then this workshop is for you!

We have developed a series of specific exercises that will be tailored to your dog's level of confidence (or lack thereof!) in each case, in order to:

- BOOST CONFIDENCE!

- INCREASE ENTHUSIASM!

- STRENGTEN YOUR BOND!

We operate ROLLING ENROLLMENT, so there is no need to wait for classes to begin! Simply register and attend our next Orientation Class, if you haven't already done so.

Both Carmella and I had a great time in the Puppy Start Right program and we are amazed every day at how much difference both the program and its philosophy have made for our pup. Thanks again to you and Laurie!!!

Hello Cowichan Canine Team! My Kooikerhondje, Buddy, and I have just completed the beginner Foundation training course. The whole process has been fantastic. Buddy is a very smart (of course) and overenthusiastic pup. My goal with him was to nip problems in the bud (pardon the pun:) to start on a path to a positive and calm relationship. We had the privilege of learning under Jody, Karen and Lisbeth in Prep school. All had different styles but their methods were consistent, positive, sound and they work! Buddy and I then moved on to Beginner Foundation under Stephanie's tutelage. Her guidance was patient, kind and empathetic. I was the slower learner, but Stephanie showed me what Buddy was capable of and gave me the knowledge,tools and insight to meet my goals. The facility is top-class, well-equipped, spotless and safe. Learning at Cowichan Canine was the most enriching investment I could have made and I hope to continue in various activities in the future. Thank you all!
