Lidia Boghean – Puppy Class Instructor 

Lidia has been a fan of animals all her life. Being the daughter of a veterinarian, Lidia grew up around dogs and a variety of other animals, and has always had a love for all kind of animals.

Lidia’s Bachelor’s Degree is in Biology, and her original goal was to become a veterinarian. But after working in an animal clinic, she realized her true passion was animal behavior, not animal medicine so she uprooted her life back home in Pennsylvania and followed her passion for dog behavior to study dogs in Nebraska.

Lidia joined the DGP team in 2017 while she was a graduate student at the University of Nebraska at Omaha studying for her Master’s Degree in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience and Behavior. Her research area of interest was the dog-owner bond and the factors influencing that relationship. Lidia’s thesis investigated how attachment, personality, and hormonal synchronization influence the ability for dogs to act as a stress buffer for their guardians.

Due to a grant and some conflicts, Lidia left DGP in 2018 to focus on and complete her studies. After she completed her Master’s Degree in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience and Behavior in 2019, an opportunity to return to the DGP family arrose and Lidia rejoined the team, leading puppy classes at our Maple Street location.

“One of the things love the most is teaching people about the unique bond that exists between dogs and their guardians and how positive training can help improve the relationships they have with their companion animals,” Lidia explained.

Lidia says she is grateful to have the opportunity to teach puppy classes helping puppies better understand their humans, lol. She is always excited to go to work and loves interacting with the guardians and their pups. “Puppy class is not just about teaching basic skills; it’s about helping guardians understand their relationship with their puppy. It is always so rewarding to hear about how puppies improve over the course of puppy classes, and seeing their progress first hand”. Lidia says she was first attracted to working for Dog Gone Problems because of our commitment to educating the public on responsible dog guardianship, and that’s exactly what she emphasizes in our puppy classes as well.

We couldn’t be happier to have such a qualified and experienced Puppy Class Instructor as a part of the DGP family. Thanks for being so amazing Lidia!
