Glenda

        Glenda graduated, with distinction, from the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behaviour in 2014 to pursue her career as a Professional Dog Trainer.  She is also a Certified Trick Dog Instructor, as well as a Certified Instructor for the Puppy Start Right Program.   Glenda has also completed the Canine Freestyle Dance Program and her beloved dog Shasta is a certified ‘Canine Good Neighbour ‘. Glenda also attended and completed the DOGSAFE First Aid Proram in 2014 and again in 2017.

        Glenda has had a lifelong, ongoing, special interest and passion for the care, management, psychology and training of dogs.  She has attended many different dog obedience programs, classes and workshops throughout Vancouver Island and has owned, raised, and trained a wide variety of different breeds and breed-mixes of dogs as well as being well-experienced in the whelping and raising of litters of puppies. 

        Glenda's little dog Tucker is featured on the SHAW video entitled “Training Dogs in the Cowichan Valley”. Her other little dog ‘Charlie’ was her KPA dog and partner throughout the Academy course curriculum.

  Most of Glenda’s dogs have also performed Tricks and Agility at the yearly ‘Cowichan Exhibition‘ in representation of Cowichan Canine Behaviour and Training.

Another one of Glenda’s dogs, in representation of Cowichan Canine behaviour and Training,  was featured in the July 09 2016 ‘Brentwood College Black Tie Awards Ceremony '. Glenda had trained her dog Shasta to independently carry the envelope, containing the winner’s name in it, up onto the stage and present it to the announcer.

 Glenda previously owned and lived on, with her six dogs, a two- acre hobby farm in Cobble Hill which she had developed into an enriched, dog-friendly environment dedicated to the happiness, training, fulfillment and activity needs of her own dogs as well as the many dogs that had boarded with her throughout the years.  The dogs worked, trained and played together and any issues they may have had, individually or socially, were addressed in dynamic interplay. 

Glenda currently lives in Cowichan Bay on a 1/3 acre, dog enriched environment with her two dogs Shasta and Capone.

What Clients Are Saying:

Our little Frenchton, Blaze, graduated from the Foundations class today with Honours. The training we received was top notch, excellent quality, and fun. We appreciated the often humorous comments thrown into our training from Karen and Stephanie, as well as the clear, easy to understand aspects of this training program. We have already introduced Blaze to Scent Detection and Agility and will continue on with these in the fall. We truly appreciate the care and commitment our instructors gave in the training of our Blaze, and of ourselves! Who knew we had so much to learn, too! :) Thank you, Karen and Stephanie! We will definitely be referring others to Cowichan Canine.

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.
