Handler's Choice

 - A fun class for both dog and human!

We can do tricks, specific service dog behaviours(*), Canine Good Neighbour test preparaton, or specific agility challenges or basic manners behaviours - You decide!

(*) We are not a service dog training institution, so we cannot support you in general, but we can teach you how to train specific service dog behaviours. For specific support for service dog training, please contact Donna Hill at https://servicedogtraininginstitute.ca/contacts/492-contact-donna-hill-sdti-instructor

Tricks can be things like shake-a-paw, wave, roll over, cover our eyes, roll a barrel, push a shopping cart, crawl, pick up your toys, skateboard, and many others.  Work on these or bring your own ideas!

What Clients Are Saying:

I adopted an adult dog and had no idea what I was getting into. The dog was terrified of everything, seemed as if she had never been walked on a leash, and hid from everyone. I called Cowichan Canine for help and Lisbeth came over that very day. With her gentle guidance, my dog is gaining confidence and I am feeling hopeful that I can help this dog to become a happy friend. I am very thankful for all the support I have received.

I don’t know if you remember Poppy but she was the small terrier that I did private training one on one to help her get over her fear of dogs. Well she is 13 months old now and loves meeting new dogs, she can’t get enough of it. She goes to doggie daycare on Saturdays because I have a long work shift and loves going there so she can play with all the other dogs. Anyways, I thought you would like to hear a good success story!
