Swansea Dog Training School

Dog Training For Swansea, MA Dog Owners

Dog Training at Ocean Grove, Swansea, MADear Swansea Dog Owner,

Swansea is a great place to have a dog. I spent my summers as a kid playing on the Lee’s River.

I started teaching dog obedience and puppy classes to Swansea dog lovers way back in 1995.

At Eric Letendre’s Dog Training School you and your dog will learn:

  • The one thing you have to know about using rewards. (Using rewards the right way can be extremely effective, done the wrong way and your training can self destruct.)
  • What German Dog Trainers know about teaching the come command that most other trainers don’t. (And how to use this secret to get maximum training results.)
  • Simple psychological “tricks” that teach your dog that you are the pack leader. (You can teach your dog that you are the leader without ever using force or harmful techniques.)
  • Exactly what to do in your first training session that can 1.) Bond your dog to you right away 2.) Develop trust between you and your dog 3.) Get your dog to respond every time he hears his name.
  • How to avoid the 5 biggest dog training myths that have been taught over the last 50 years. (Scary thing is… many dog trainers still teach these myths. Yet in most cases, these myths can actually harm your dog.)
  • And much, much more…

What dog owners have to say about training their dogs with Eric Letendre:

Lindsey Pinkerton, in Little Compton, RI needed dog training for her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Sophie. Sophie did not listen to Lindsey or anyone else. Here is how she described the training:

Dog Training With Sophie Pinkerton in Little Compton, RI“Eric always has the answer. Whatever the problem is, he can solve it (sounds like a Vanilla Ice song from the ‘90s). And the answer usually isn't very complicated… sometimes it seems obvious after he says it, but it is invaluable to have him point out the things that we don't even realize we do when we interact with our dog. He gave us simple solutions that were easy to implement and for many things, it solved problem behaviors almost instantly.

Hands down the best money you'll ever spend on anything in your life. Eric is the best! He will help you get the dog you dreamed of when you brought home that puppy in the first place! It'll make everyone in your house happier, including the dog! Now that Sophie knows what we expect from her, she is much happier, our daily lives are much calmer and the relationship that my kids have with her is so much more rewarding.”

When we first got our puppy, she was out of control. Going to Eric's puppy class has helped us out tremendously, and most of all, gave us a better understanding of how our pup thinks.

I was amazed that I could learn how to train my dog. Eric's patience and training style brings understanding our out of control puppy to the forefront.

Thank you Eric!

Ray Galuska needed some dog training help in Acushnet, MA. He contacted us about his little Scottie that had been using him as a chew toy. He also had a difficult time walking her. Here is what he had to say about the training:

"Eric always came in and was ready to answer any question and you could tell he truly loves dogs. I would most positively recommend calling him and I am sure he will help with whatever problem you have. Our groomer, Karen Reynolds at Coats N Tails in New Bedford, MA, had Eric help train her dog and also had success."

Eric knows what dogs are thinking about. It's the same gift that enables John McEnroe to be such a good tennis commentator. He knows what the players are thinking and what the players are likely to do.

When my beagle wouldn't obey a particular command in dog school, Eric suggested that the dog was confused. He said, "Your dog is thinking you meant something else." The he would clarify the command by hand signals or voice, and it worked. We are indebted to Eric. My hyper Minnie beagle is now normal, and so is my wife.
