Lisbeth Plant is a dog training coach in Duncan on southern Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. She is dedicated to positive, humane training methods that are based in science and that develop and preserve a natural and positive relationship between people and their dogs.
Lisbeth Plant KPACTP was born and grew up in Sweden, but she is British by naturalization and Canadian by marriage! She got her first dog, Dino the dachshund, when she was 13 and they trained and competed together in obedience and tracking. After Dino, Lisbeth embarked on education, family and a career in the international insurance industry, and she was the CEO of an insurance/reinsurance company in the City of London, England, until she was forced to retire 1998 following a severe horse-riding accident. She moved from London, England, to Cobble Hill, where she lives with her husband Bill and their Bernese Mountain Dogs.
In addition to Cowichan Canine's training services, Lisbeth offers seminars and workshops on a multitude of training-related subjects. She is a licensed Be A Tree-presenter with Doggone Safe, a non-profit organization dedicated to dog bite prevention through education and dog bite victim support. The Be a Tree programme is a seminar program for elementary school children that teaches dog body language and how to act safely around dogs. Through the sponsorships of Cowichan Canine, Lisbeth offers the Be a Tree dog bite prevention program free of charge to schools, scout groups and similar community groups.
Lisbeth is a Canine Good Neighbour evaluator for the Canadian Kennel Club.
