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:

Dear Lisbeth, Those of us who are devoted dog owners are fortunate to have this gem of a facility here in the Cowichan Valley. These qualified, experienced, good humored and kind-hearted ladies have been so helpful to this “experienced” lifelong dog family with hell puppy Radar. New insights and practices prove you can teach these old dogs’ new tricks. And a program so reasonably priced too. It’s not that often these days you get such value for your dollar. Really. These last couple of months have been fun watching our little land shark morph into a loving and disciplined member of our family. We have so much respect for Karen, who worked with us in our Foundation training, with her amazing lengthy qualifications and down to earth sense of humor. She’s such a fantastic teacher! Our little grad Radar will now enter into her graduate studies - Scent Detection. Such Fun! Thank You

Thanks Bev, You are totally awesome and a great teacher. Thanks also to Lisbeth for her puppy socialization classes, and to Karen and Laurie. We took these classes as a condition of our breeder's contract, and we are so glad we did. It all began with your wonderful puppy socialization classes – little Fred was so happy to meet other little ones, and we learned a lot about dog etiquette and grooming. And then it progressed to Foundation where finally I could put a dog into a “down” without begging (eg our two other goldens now in doggie heaven) and could walk around the neighbourhood without the dog walking me! I think Fred is a happier and smarter puppy because of your training style. Woof woof from Fred! And a big thank you from us!
