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 instru.ctor will demonstrate with her own dog, and then supervise your copying the exercise with your own dog.

After the lessons, you will receive written instructions and educational materials as and when appropriate. At the conclusion and if appropraite, your veterinarian may receive a letter of information, outlining what we have been working on, or we may decide together that communication or consultation with your veterinarian at other times during our work together would be 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!


We usually offer Zoom, but if you prefer to use GoTo Meeting, Skype, or Facebook chat, we can do that, too. => You pick!

What Clients Are Saying:

Dear Lisbeth, I have just passed my Foundation Programme with my dog Lucky. I just want to mention how much I enjoyed the classes with Karen. She was delightful to work with and I look forward to some more classes with her in the spring.

Maxine Yeomans & Lucky

Just want to thank you Lisbeth and also Bev and Karen for the excellent training that Lily and I have enjoyed so much. I know Lily has enough for a pass now but we really are aiming for distinction. We are working hard at home as well to see if we can get this. Lily is so improved now. My husband says that in the mornings when he is playing ball off leash with her that she no longer runs at other dogs, she just ignores them now. I noticed when I took her to another trainer in the summer she was always panting and anxious. At Cowichan Canine she is just so happy and cannot wait to get in the door. It is her favourite place so obviously what you are doing is right and the place has great vibes for dogs. She has not reacted to the dogs in the classes either but is always wagging her tail. I am very grateful for this. We will be back in December and want to go onto greater things in advanced and we are both looking forward to it. Going to bring my other dog Cole as well.
