Do You Love A Good Dog Story?

Do You Love A Good Dog Story?

Let’s have a little history lesson today.

Waaaay before I became The Amazing Dog Training Man I was just Eric Letendre – Dog Trainer.

I had been working as the head trainer for a large dog training facility in Connecticut and before that I was K-9 Supervisor for a security company in Hartford, CT.

I was hankering to go off on my own and start a business. But there is a certain amount of doubt and fear when you decide to go off and hang your shingle.

Luckily, I had my parents that gave me a tremendous amount of help to get started. Nobody makes it on their own and thankfully my parents were there to provide much needed support.

Another person that helped was a writer for the Fall River Herald. He had a very popular pet column that was read by everyone that had any interest in dogs.

This was back in the summer of 1995 and business was a struggle. With not very much money to advertise (not to mention I was terrible at it) new customers trickled in.

The writer for the pet column, Brian Lowney, called and asked to meet with me. Naturally I was very excited and looked forward to our meeting. He came down and we spent about an hour talking and he wrote a great article about me and my business.

That one article helped a lot because it gave me credibility and a lot of people that did not know I existed called and brought their dogs in for a class.

Fast forward 19 years. I moved away and lost contact with Brian. I went on to become The Amazing Dog Training Man and Brian continued writing his column. At last count, he has written close to 1000 articles on pets.

I recently moved back to the area and found out he had written a new book, “Unconditional Love: Pet Tales to Warm the Heart.”

It’s a great book with interesting stories that provide practical advice about care and conditioning, safety and health. Stories like:

* Disabled Duck Teaches Valuable Lessons

* Military Dogs Are Also Heros

* Ah, The Thrill Of Westminster!

* Am Staffs Are Often Wrongfully Maligned

* What’s Going On In Your Pet’s Mouth?

* Summer Can Be Dangerous For Pets

* And much more.

So if you’re looking for a great summer read, this book is it.
