Obedience Classes

Calm Energy Dog Training is run by New York trainer and dog whisperer Anthony Newman, a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), Canine Behavior Therapist, professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), and Cesar Millan Ambassador.

Having interned for a New York canine behavior therapist and worked as a handler in doggie daycares, Anthony now specializes in helping dogs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and surrounding NYC learn to be calm, obedient, and social in these challenging city environments. Anthony’s own retired racing greyhounds have been certified as therapy dogs by The Good Dog Foundation, and have helped cancer patients rehabilitate from chemotherapy treatements and schoolchildren learn to interact peacefully with dogs.

Also an experienced university professor with a Ph.D., Anthony has a knack for teaching anyone to foster a joyous and peaceful relationship with their canine companions – through private training sessions, group obedience classes, interactive workshops, and leash-training pack walks. Anthony has been featured in New York MagazineThe New York Daily NewsThe Huffington PostGawkerTails Magazine, and on many online news sites and blogs. He has been filmed by VH1 and Huffpost Live, and is a regular speaker at the New York Fellowship for the Interests of Dogs and their Owners.
