Andrea

 

Throwing caution and some sense to the wind (allergic to dogs!!!), Andrea finally became a guardian to a dog in her mid 40’s.

Then, due to lack of experience and knowledge, promptly created a resource guarding behaviour in her Boston Terrier puppy, Brixton.

As with many of Cowichan Canine’s past and present employees, she enlisted Lisbeth to help deal with this issue and the rest is history (Brix’s resource guarding behaviour is now successfully managed).  

Brix managed to graduate from the Foundation programme in 2013 despite Andrea’s less than admirable clicker mechanics and leash handling skills which continue to plague her to this day - treats, a clicker, a leash all at the same time??? :)

Andrea has been working in administration with Cowichan Canine since 2016 and very much enjoys learning about dogs and dog training and meeting the dogs and people that come through our doors.

Andrea shares a home in Shawnigan Lake with Boston Terriers, Brix and Honey, and Pepper the Cockatiel.

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!

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!
