Online Training

Live online dog training lessons are appropriate for the same issues as in-person, in-home dog training, and can be chosen for convenience or to save money. It is particularly suitable during an epidemic, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, when in-person consultations are not an option.

You get the same expert training advice with our in-person training

Just like with an in-person, in-home lesson, we go through the same steps:

- Behaviour Questionnaire and analysis

- Behaviour Modification goals and priorities

- Educational materials

- Homework

Instead of practical demonstration with your dog, your instructor will demonstrate with her own dog, and then supervise your copying of the exercise with your own dog.

After each lesson, you will receive written instructions and educational materials. At the conclusion and if appropraite, your veterinarian will receive a letter of information, outlining what we have been working on. As we continue to work together, written material will continue to be supplied as appropriate.


- No tech savvy needed (all you need is a computer/ laptop/ tablet with camera and microphone)

- Honours social distancing

- If your dog is worried about strangers, he won't be during online training

- We can see behaviours that may not occur when there is a stranger in the house

- You don't have to travel

- Stay in your PJs!

- No face masks needed!

- You can watch recording of the lesson afterwards, if you wish


We can do whichever you prefer of either GoTo Meeting, Zoom, Skype, Facebook chat, or telephone. => You pick!

What Clients Are Saying:

I just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Jody worked with us and our puppy over the month of August, and she was absolutely excellent. The private training was the perfect choice to address our specific questions and learn about returning to Alberta with the pup, and how to help her adjust. We look forward to more training next summer at the lake! Jody has such a wonderful attitude toward the training, and we felt very confident with our plan for introducing our puppy to Alberta. The introduction to our neighbour dog (the one who charges and barks as his "greeting") was perfect. We did a parallel walk across the green space, then got closer and used treats from me for both dogs. There was no charging, and they are now well introduced and quite good pals already!

Happy Puppy Parent

Today I was paid the ultimate compliment by Lisbeth Plant, owner of Cowichan Canine. She said I had helped my puppy Daphne (now 6 months old) develop into a really nice young dog. I agree! But of course I could not have done it without the wonderful folks at Cowichan Canine: professional, caring, knowledgeable and a bonus - all with a great sense of humour! Lisbeth, Stephanie, Andrea, Glenda and Steph all continue to help me guide Daphne and I am so grateful for their help, knowledge and kindness and for occasionally talking me down from a proverbial cliff! How lucky we are here in the Cowichan valley to have access to a full spectrum of resources to help guide and develop our dogs into the best they can be! Let the learning (and fun) continue!
