COVID-19: IN-PERSON CLASSES AND BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS SUSPENDED

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

BC PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY - COVID-19

(Updated 17 March 2020)

As a consequence of today's provincial Public Health Emergency, all classes  and in-home behaviour consultations have been suspended.

As the situation clears up, all credits will of course be honoured.

We are working on setting up a platform for online training lessons.

The office is now closed to the public, but you can reach us via email or telephone (778-455-1985) and we can still ship merchandise.

For emergencies, please call Lisbeth on 250-732-5415.

Please follow provincial health directives as we all do our bit to help flatten the curve of this outbreak and practice Social Distancing.

Current advice is that our dogs are unlikely to actually become sick from the virus, but that there is a possibility that they may carry the virus on their bodies - the same as any other "surface".

What Clients Are Saying:

I had the good fortune and pleasure to take the Foundation Program at Cowichan K9 this winter with my lab cross puppy Cody. Cody just turned 8 months when we graduated with distinction from this awesome training experience. Bev, Karen, and Glenda were terrific and facilitated our learning with clear instruction, helpful tips, and much kindness and caring. I've worked with dogs all my life and was amazed at how much I learned participating in this program and now Cody and I get to benefit daily from our indelible experience with you. Training with such positive reinforcement, small class size, and expert facilitation enhanced our relationship beyond measure and will continue to do so now that we have the tools and understanding. Cody travels on rounds with me and is continually being complimented on his fine manners and keen willingness to please. I am so proud of him! Attending our classes at Cowichan Canine was the highlight of each week and will continue to be as we begin agility classes and scent games. I can't thank you enough for how your program has enriched our relationship and daily life together. I recommend all my clients take their dogs to Cowichan Canine. Every one can benefit! p.s. Your Christmas party was the highlight of the season, hands down! Class act: so many happy, well behaved dogs and their people, games and prizes, Santa and presents, incredibly delicious appies and meatballs galore for all. That was the best Christmas function I've ever attended! Thank you again -

I adopted an adult dog and had no idea what I was getting into. The dog was terrified of everything, seemed as if she had never been walked on a leash, and hid from everyone. I called Cowichan Canine for help and Lisbeth came over that very day. With her gentle guidance, my dog is gaining confidence and I am feeling hopeful that I can help this dog to become a happy friend. I am very thankful for all the support I have received.
