Stubborn Dog!

Is your dog ignoring you? Not listening? Blowing you off? Doing his own thing? Coming when called sometimes, slowly and sometimes not at all? Walking on a loose leash some times, and pulling at other times? Sometimes even refusing to walk? Refusing to sit or lie down?

Then this two-hour workshop is for you!

We will discuss the issues and challenges associated with training a dog that is a reluctant learner, and practice exercises that promote changing your dog's mindset to becoming an ENTHUSIASTIC LEARNER.

Topics covered will include:

- why dogs are "stubborn"

- identifying and repairing "poisoned cues"

- identifying motivators

- building reliable behaviours

 

NOTE

This workshop is NOT for dogs that have social issues (fear, aggression, reactivity) around other dogs or people. If that is the case, you may attend as an "auditor".

IMPORTANT: Students that are new to Cowichan Canine will be required to sign a liability waiver upon arrival and provide documentation for their dog of vaccination for parvo and distemper, no older than 3 years, or titer test no older than 12 months. Without this documentation, your dog cannot enter the premises and your fee will be forfeit.

What Clients Are Saying:

Wanting to be new dog owners, we got 16 weeks old puppy, named Pepper. Shortly after bringing Pepper home, she was attacked by much larger dog and seriously injured. After consultation with the vet, we came to understanding that Pepper maybe traumatized by the horrible experience. We soon realized this was the case, Pepper was scared of other dogs and continuously barking. We contacted Lisbeth at Cowichan canine, who came to our home and gave us one on one lessons. We found Lisbeth to be very knowledgeable , professional and patient with novice dog owners. Lisbeth invited us to the Cowichan canine facility, where we were introduced to the staff and other dog owners. Being so impressed with the dedication of the staff and variety of classes, we enrolled Pepper immediately. Whenever we have any concerns or questions, Lisbeth is always quick to respond. Pepper became much calmer dog after reactive dog classes, so I am enjoying walking with her. To Lisbeth and the stuff, Thank you for everything.

Hello Cowichan Canine Team! My Kooikerhondje, Buddy, and I have just completed the beginner Foundation training course. The whole process has been fantastic. Buddy is a very smart (of course) and overenthusiastic pup. My goal with him was to nip problems in the bud (pardon the pun:) to start on a path to a positive and calm relationship. We had the privilege of learning under Jody, Karen and Lisbeth in Prep school. All had different styles but their methods were consistent, positive, sound and they work! Buddy and I then moved on to Beginner Foundation under Stephanie's tutelage. Her guidance was patient, kind and empathetic. I was the slower learner, but Stephanie showed me what Buddy was capable of and gave me the knowledge,tools and insight to meet my goals. The facility is top-class, well-equipped, spotless and safe. Learning at Cowichan Canine was the most enriching investment I could have made and I hope to continue in various activities in the future. Thank you all!
