SEMINAR: Be-A-Tree

This 60 minutes presentation is aimed at families and children from Kindergarten through Elementary school. NO DOGS, PLEASE!

Did you know that around 50% of children will have been bitten by a dog by the time they reach 12 years of age?

THE MAJORITY OF CHILDREN GET BITTEN BY A DOG THEY KNOW. It could be the family dog, a friend's dog or nana's dog.

Evidence that children do not know how to read dog body language

Cowichan Canine offers all families - whether you have a dog or not! - to take advantage of this presentation on dog bite prevention. Lisbeth Plant ACDBC UW-AAB KPACTP CBATI is a licensed Be-A-Tree presenter for the non-profit organization Doggone Safe. This organization is dedicated to promoting education for the purpose of dog bite prevention and increased child safety around dogs, as well as to provide support for dog bite victims.

The Be A Tree-programme is aimed at elementary school children, but it also works well for children 5-6 years of age. The presentation itself takes 45-60 minutes, but we also allow for a break and we do a lot of role play to help the children memorize the message.

The presentation includes careful listening as well as physical activities in the form of games and role play.

What Clients Are Saying:

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!

To Everyone at Cowichan Canine: Cyrus & I have just finished the Foundation program and passed with Honours - phew! Along the way we were fortunate to sample several of the other courses that you offer, including private lessons for my other dog, Ricco. It was a real treat to be able to do that . I learned soooo much about my dogs; from how they react to each other, how to understand their body language, to be more patient and even what treats to provide for success. I was very impressed from the start with your on-line registration, the class sizes, the ability to work at our own pace, and even the individual water bowls. And on top of all that, each instructor offers a unique view of training so that you can get different perspectives. And of course, Andrea keeps the ship running smoothly. The time the three of us have spent with you has definitely been a worthwhile Thank you from Sherie, Ricco & Cyrus.
