Dear Westport MA Dog Owner,

Dog Training Westport MA

Westport is a great place to have a dog. There are so many great places to take your dog to go hiking, swimming, and more. I love doing lessons down at Elephant Rock beach off season and one of my other favorites is Gooseberry Island. I love taking my kids, Scarlett and Spencer, and my dog Martini there for hikes.

I started teaching dog obedience and puppy classes to Westport 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 in Westport have to say about training their dogs with Eric Letendre:

Sky is a beautiful, young German Shepherd who would jump, pull on leash, and was difficult to control, especially at the Vet’s office. After a few dog training sessions in Westport, Massachusetts Sky did excellent at her next Vet exam.

Sky Dog Training Westport MA"Sky was seen yesterday at Acoaxet Veterinary Clinic in Westport, Mass. We were very satisfied! They handled her excellently, and she responded really well. Sky did so much better! When people made comments about how well she was behaving, (even in the waiting room!) I told them 'Eric Letendre' taught her, and us!... He is a patient person! They did say they like you around there too! It was quite 'cute', as at one point the vet referred to you as "Uncle Eric" when addressing Sky! And I know Sky is thankful!"

"Also, God's best to you, your wife, and family! Thanks again!"

"The biggest challenge for us was jumping and coming when called. No is the magic word Eric taught us. He rarely does anything wrong but if he does he stops immediately. You can see that Eric loves is job and the best part is he came to my house to do the dog training. If someone was to ask me about hiring Eric I would say “Do it!!!!”

Carla, in Westport, MA, has multiple dogs that needed dog training. Her biggest challenge was getting all of her dogs to listen. Here is her success story:

"I love the fact that not only is Eric's training not gonna make us broke... he's very understanding and easy to work with. And the dogs love him!! Eric is very reasonably priced and can train ANY kind of dog with problems."

Another trainer told us that for the most part, Basset Hounds are not trainable. We met Eric, liked what we saw, and signed up for a class.

The manner in which the training is conducted is extremely important. Dogs aren't cowering and there's no yelling. We were most impressed with the technique Eric taught us to stop our dog from jumping on people. We've shown it to every person coming to our home. We would recommend Eric Letendre to anyone seeking help with their dog, and plan to take more classes.

Zeus was an adoptee and was five years old when we got him. Most recently, at the age of ten, he has completed Eric's Level 3 training. It goes to show you that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

It's been a pleasure doing business with Eric, and I never worry when Zeus is an overnight guest or a trainee.
