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:

Our little Frenchton, Blaze, graduated from the Foundations class today with Honours. The training we received was top notch, excellent quality, and fun. We appreciated the often humorous comments thrown into our training from Karen and Stephanie, as well as the clear, easy to understand aspects of this training program. We have already introduced Blaze to Scent Detection and Agility and will continue on with these in the fall. We truly appreciate the care and commitment our instructors gave in the training of our Blaze, and of ourselves! Who knew we had so much to learn, too! :) Thank you, Karen and Stephanie! We will definitely be referring others to Cowichan Canine.

Hi Bev – I thought I’d let you know that Cody’s behaviour has been absolutely stellar since we graduated Foundations. We’ve been doing quite a bit of off leash walking, and he is suddenly paying so much more attention, coming when he is called – even if he’s playing with other dogs – I can hardly believe it! Thanks again for all your help. Looking forward to seeing more info on Advanced Clicker and the other course you mentioned (good neighbor?) in October.
