Pet Counseling

Obedience Training

At VCA South Shore (Weymouth) Animal Hospital we know how important it is for you and your pets to live your best lives. Lack of training and behavior issues can certainly get in the way of this! That's why we started the VCA South Shore Dog Training Academy. Our head trainer, Lysa Knight Goguen, is an avid animal lover with over 20 years of experience in the field. She is a CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed) and Fear Free Certified Professional. Before coming to VCA South Shore, Lysa was co-owner of the largest dog daycare and training facility in Southern CA. Lysa and her dogs have also competed and placed in Purina's Incredible Dog Challenge. Lysa is a huge advocate for positive, rewards-based training and enjoys seeing dogs and their owners grow together over the course of her training sessions.

We are thrilled to be able to offer dog training programs to meet all of your needs!
