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:

Just want to thank you Lisbeth and also Bev and Karen for the excellent training that Lily and I have enjoyed so much. I know Lily has enough for a pass now but we really are aiming for distinction. We are working hard at home as well to see if we can get this. Lily is so improved now. My husband says that in the mornings when he is playing ball off leash with her that she no longer runs at other dogs, she just ignores them now. I noticed when I took her to another trainer in the summer she was always panting and anxious. At Cowichan Canine she is just so happy and cannot wait to get in the door. It is her favourite place so obviously what you are doing is right and the place has great vibes for dogs. She has not reacted to the dogs in the classes either but is always wagging her tail. I am very grateful for this. We will be back in December and want to go onto greater things in advanced and we are both looking forward to it. Going to bring my other dog Cole as well.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about cowichan canine!!! My pup went through the puppy start right and then onto the foundation classes. Stef and Stephanie were fantastic!!! Both classes are well run, organized, they are excellent teachers and spend time with you and your dog. The class sizes are small which makes an excellent learning facility. Stef and Stephanie are patient and kind. The knowledge is second to none. You are able to ask questions and have one on one time as necessary. Did I mention how clean the facility is...? Holy you'd never know dogs are there all day. We wanted to give our pup his best chance and cowichan canine certainly facilitated that.
