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:

I had the good fortune and pleasure to take the Foundation Program at Cowichan K9 this winter with my lab cross puppy Cody. Cody just turned 8 months when we graduated with distinction from this awesome training experience. Bev, Karen, and Glenda were terrific and facilitated our learning with clear instruction, helpful tips, and much kindness and caring. I've worked with dogs all my life and was amazed at how much I learned participating in this program and now Cody and I get to benefit daily from our indelible experience with you. Training with such positive reinforcement, small class size, and expert facilitation enhanced our relationship beyond measure and will continue to do so now that we have the tools and understanding. Cody travels on rounds with me and is continually being complimented on his fine manners and keen willingness to please. I am so proud of him! Attending our classes at Cowichan Canine was the highlight of each week and will continue to be as we begin agility classes and scent games. I can't thank you enough for how your program has enriched our relationship and daily life together. I recommend all my clients take their dogs to Cowichan Canine. Every one can benefit! p.s. Your Christmas party was the highlight of the season, hands down! Class act: so many happy, well behaved dogs and their people, games and prizes, Santa and presents, incredibly delicious appies and meatballs galore for all. That was the best Christmas function I've ever attended! Thank you again -

I have taken my Pembroke Welsh Corgi through Puppy Classes, The Foundation Programme, Starters Agility and we are now in Advanced Agility. The overall results have been excellent. Reba is now competing at Agility Trials and will soon move from Starters there to Advanced. Lisbeth, Bev, and Karen helped immensely along the way, but Reba's Agility success is solely due to Jody. She is amazing in so many ways - knowledgeable, patient, able to adapt her communication to different clients at different levels beautifully, and so much more. She is encouraging and Reba runs to see her when we attend class. A big Paws Up to Jody and CC.
