Learn to love the one you are
…and the one you’re with.
How I will help you
No matter if you use one of my books, my task cards, an online class or a private lesson, you will think about yourself and your partner in a way that may be new to you. A positive approach to team work and self matters. Be the best partner you can be – not only for your canine or equine but for you too!
I’m Andrea Harrison. I work with the human half of equine sport and dog sport teams when they find themselves struggling. My experiences as an educator, trainer, competitor and coach have given me insights and training that will help you.
Maybe you feel like you’ve been working hard with your animal companion, but often feel frustrated, or find yourself upset when you aren’t as successful as you would like. Or maybe you aren’t sure how to recover from errors or a negative comment someone makes. Perhaps nerves leave you in a cold sweat and prevent you from bringing your best game to the table!
It’s okay. You’re not alone.
I help people just like you learn to enjoy their relationships with their 4-legged friend again, or, as my students would say, “learn to love the one you’re with.”
Let’s work together so you can be the best partner possible.
What People Are Saying
“I have a sensitive dog who had been shutting down in the obedience and rally ring. My own ring nerves made things worse for her.
Andrea helped me understand my own feelings and emotions, and helped me see things through my dogs eyes also.
Then we mapped out a plan to make incremental changes. This process was instrumental in reconstructing us as ‘a team.’ And it is working!”Jill S.
“I bought the task cards on an impulse, and didn’t realise how useful they would turn out to be!
They are the perfect fit for trying to fit dog training into a busy lifestyle – whenever I have 5 minutes I can simply grab a card and go train, no fuss and no overthinking on what should I be doing (which for me is important!).”Liz L.
“Having taken several online classes with Andrea what impresses me most is her incredible breadth of knowledge and her wonderful, non-judgmental and caring attitude toward all of her students.
She has a seemingly endless wealth of references and links to share for any possible issue and has a gift for providing them at the right time and without expectations.”Abby S.
