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.

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 the 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 are temporarily offered at the Stratford Room (aka "Pancake House" or "Scout Hall") at Cowichan Exhibition Park in Duncan, until our new training facility is complete.

 

FOUNDATION PROGRAMME

Classes are held at our temporary facility in Cobble Hill.

GENERAL PROGRAMME

Agility and Handler's Choice

These classes are also offered at our temporary facility 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

 

While Carting is on hold during the winter, Outdoor Manners and Outdoor Play Group continue as usual.

 

Rally Obedience

These classes will be on hold until our new classroom is finished in the 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 at Cowichan Exhibition.

 

 REACTIVE DOG PROGRAMME

Level I

The combined Conditioning & Manners module continues in the 1/2 hour private lesson-format, ie. the same format as the Rally, Scent Detection and BAT modules already have had for some time in this programme.

Conditioning & 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 at Cowichan Exhibition.

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:

Chewie and I just finished the Foundation Programme, with distinction, in 7 weeks. We would not have been able to accomplish this if it wasn't for the team of ladies at Cowichan Canine. Chewie is James and my first puppy, and we were pretty clueless. Thanks to the guidance of Bev, Karen and Lisbeth we are proud of our dog, but also of the "puppy parents" we have become. We hope to continue our education at Cowichan Canine, and we recommend the training facility to anyone who owns a dog. And it all started with the Puppy Socialization class! Thank you so much!

We just wanted you let you know that we bought 2 of the tractive GPS trackers for our Siberian Huskies as they are a breed known to not come back if let off a leash. We purchased the premium plan and we are truly amazed at what this can do. We have tested it even driving in our vehicle. It was very easy to set up on an app on our phones and each tracker has the capability of having a photo of your dog and shows the picture while tracking. We have a perimeter alarm set on it that texts us as soon as either dog breaches it and no matter where we are in the world we can switch to live tracking and track exactly where they’ve run off to. We are very pleased with how simple everything was and how sturdy the trackers are themselves. We would recommend this to anyone. January 20, 2018
