WE ARE MOVING!

 

For the past six years, we have loved being in our beautiful facility on Chaster Road, but the time has come that we now need more outdoor spaces. We are building our new, expanded training facility in Cobble Hill - only a 12 1/2 mins drive south of Duncan.

 

The last day of classes at Chaster Road will be Sunday 24 November.

We will then be closed for a week (except for puppy classes) before gradually taking up classes again in Cobble Hill.

 

We are expecting the entire building project (class room, office, sports field) to take us through to spring, and some classes may be on hiatus for a while during the building of the classroom, or relocated to other venues.

Any timetable that involves builders and the weather has to be somewhat flexible - no disrespect to our builder friends, or Mother Nature!

 

During our building project,
our plan is for classes and other training services to proceed as follows:

 

PUPPY START RIGHT PROGRAMME

No interruption.
Classes and play groups will move directly from Chaster Road to Cobble Hill.

 

FOUNDATION PROGRAMME

The Foundation Programme will be on hiatus until the new class room building has been completed.

Students whose programme time runs over the moving date can choose between these three options:

1. Take up to three classes per week in order to finish your 16 classes by 24 November.

2. Take any of the 16 classes that are still outstanding by 24 Nov as private 1/2-hour lessons in Cobble Hill.

3. Go on hiatus with the remaining classes until the Foundation Programme starts up again. (You can change your mind at any time and take the 1/2 -hr private lessons instead, if you wish.)

 

GENERAL PROGRAMME

Agility and Handler's Choice

These classes will relocate to a temporary venue in Cobble Hill until the new class room has been completed, and will be offered as 1/2 hour private lessons rather than 1-hour classes, at the same price.

Pay with your usual punch-card, same price for a 1/2 hr private lesson as for a 1-hr class.

 

Carting, Outdoor Manners and Outdoor Play Group

 

Without interruption, these classes will continue as usual.

 

Rally Obedience

These classes will be on hold until our new classroom is finished in early spring.

 

 

Scent Detection

SD classes will be reduced to maximum three (3) students per class and will be offered in a combination of indoor and outdoor scent work in Cobble Hill.

 

 REACTIVE DOG PROGRAMME

Level I

The Conditioning and the Manners modules will transfer to the 1/2 hour private lesson-format, ie. the same format as the Rally, Scent Detection and BAT modules already have in this programme.

Conditioning and Manners will continue in/outdoors at Cobble Hill during the building project.

Reactive Rally will be on hold until our new classroom has been completed.

Reactive Scent Detection will continue indoors/outdoors in Cobble Hill.

Pay with your usual punch-card, same price for a 1/2 hr private lesson as for a 1-hr class.

 

Level II - BAT

No interruption, except for winter weather!

BAT continues as before outdoors in Cobble Hill.

 

PRIVATE INHOME BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS

No interruption. Private in-home behaviour consultations, and other private training, continue as before.

What Clients Are Saying:

Hi there, Ed and I are doing pretty good. The vet is tackling his some health issues and Ed seems to be much happier overall with summer being here. He's even willing to roll on his back and let me rub his tummy now which I think is a good sign of our improved relationship. Anyone I talk to about Ed gets a big recommendation from me regarding Cowichan Canine. I sing your praises every chance I get since I know that I would be in a pretty bad situation without your help every step of Ed's development. Thanks so much for all the education that I needed and all of the fun times as well

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 !!
