Dog Training In Dartmouth, MA

Dog Training Russells Mills Landing, Dartmouth MADear Dartmouth Dog Owner,

Dartmouth is a great place to have a dog. My wife and I like buying our milk and eggs at Paskamansett Farms, visiting the animals at Alderbrook Farm (and picking up some Coastal Roasters coffee), and then taking our kids and pups for a walk at Russells Mills Landing.

I started teaching dog obedience and puppy training classes to Dartmouth dog lovers way back in 1995!

When you train your dog at Eric Letendre’s Dog Training School you’ll 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 in Dartmouth have to say about training their dogs with Eric Letendre:

Dog Training Dartmouth MA"The challenge loomed large with two standard poodle puppies only four months apart. Having been involved in Eric's training classes 13 years ago, we knew who to call."

"Lexi and Ella are well on their way to becoming happy, well-behaved dogs thanks to Eric's expertise in training and recognizing a canine's ability to learn. We are so pleased with the fine results after attending Obedience Training classes One & Two. With both pups less than a year old, Eric has instilled confidence in us that we can be trained to raise well-mannered dogs in the presence of other dogs and people."

"He is excellent at getting to the point in an entertaining and lively environment. In a short period of time we and the pups have learned so much with more to come. The reward has been worth every effort ten fold!"

Leslie & Maria Verissimo contacted me because of their little dog, Benny. Benny is a very cute, very smart little dog but he had one big problem. He would bark his head off and jump like crazy when someone walked into the house. We did three training sessions with Benny and now he is well-behaved and listens to his commands. Leslie wrote us to state:

“We want to thank you so much for helping us with Benny. He is like a new dog! My mom is enjoying him so much more now that he isn't always jumping and barking every time someone walks through the door and she is loving how he is listening to her, especially with the sit/stay/come commands... thank you again. We are very happy.”

Your weekly E-mails are great, friendly, fun, and informative. Your classes are also great. My stubborn little beagle is now walking very nicely on his leash. Thanks for a great all around experience.

In October, Abby came into our lives with the force of a hurricane. Four months later, as we continued to work at convincing ourselves that her ping-pong behavior was simply healthy exuberance, we saw the first signs of aggressiveness towards other dogs. Fortunately, our Vet recommended a visit to Eric Letendre.

Thanks to Eric's astute evaluation and very workable suggestions, Abby's behavior quickly improved. She began to attend dog daycare, where she played and interacted with other dogs.

After a few private lessons with Eric, where he taught us some key management techniques, we joined a training class - not a bark or lunge on Abby's part!

I hesitate to think of Abby's fate had we not found Eric. His gentle, but very effective training methods worked wonders with her. His expertise, confidence, and obvious love of dogs worked wonders with us.

When Abby is in daycare, or boarding with Eric, we're certain that she is as well cared for as she would be at home. Abby is becoming more enjoyable every day, and we're having fun training her and watching her progress. Thank you Eric!

Eric Letendre was recommended to me by several sources. I then decided to take a look at his website. In doing so, I signed up to receive Eric's weekly E-zine. I found the information in the E-zine to make sense, be extremely helpful, and most importantly, be achievable.

I have two dogs who have extremely different temperaments and energy levels. I find that Eric's methods work equally well with both of them. Also, I have begun, and continue to be, more in tune with how my dogs think, and why they do what they do. This is a huge breakthrough, and is a concept I had not given much thought to in the past.

What I admire most about Eric's training concepts is that they apply obedience training successfully without the means of force that may ultimately harm, injure, or backfire later on. It's been great to realize that training may be accomplished without the owner becoming over frustrated or completely insane.

My dog Rudy and I attended classes with Eric Letendre. Rudy is a better dog and I am a better owner for doing so. The classes are informative and fun for both of us.

I thought my dog Kimmy was a candidate for canine ADHD before I met Eric. Now, she is well-behaved, obedient, and comes on command. She is also an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen. It is all due to the training she received with Eric.

Dartmouth MA is a great place to have a dog. There are so many great places to go with your dog. You can hike, swim, and explore different areas. The better trained your dog is the more fun you’ll have because a trained dog is a controlled dog.
