Lee Charles Kelley –
The Best Dog Trainer in New York City, NY
Hello, my name is Lee Charles Kelley and I have been training dogs professionally since 1989 when my dog Charlie got a steady gig on Late Night with David Letterman as "Charlie the Bubble-Eating Dog." Owning a dog in the big city means you need to know it will be well-behaved, so how do you get them to follow your commands?
As the best dog trainer in New York City, NY, I have spent more than three decades helping people just like you get a better understanding of their pups. Through relationship-building exercises, I show you that there is a better way to connect with your dog to get the behavior you are after.
A History of Dog Training
In 2009, I was asked by Psychology Today to write articles for their Website regarding dogs. For the next four years, I wrote more than 100 science-based articles about canine behavior and learning, working alongside other experts such as Dr. Marc Bekoff and Dr. Stanley Coren, and getting nearly half-a-million views. After 30 years, I have found that there is a better way to train dogs than exerting control over them or trying to reinforce specific behaviors. By building an emotional resonance with your dog, you will be able to naturally reinforce your dog’s behaviors.
Relationship-Based Dog Training
The best dog training comes from building a strong relationship with your pet. The relationship between humans and dogs began more than 40,000 years ago when our ancestors and our dog’s ancestors worked together to hunt woolly mammoths. We didn’t dominate our dogs or use positive reinforcements to motivate them back then. Instead, we were partners in the hunt—on the same wavelength and in tune with Mother Nature and one another.
A lot may have changed in the centuries since, but what do you think is the most important thing to a dog nowadays? Do you think it is getting rewards for a good behavior? Do you think it is being dominated by their master? No. The nature of a dog is to be part of a pack. They want to feel emotionally connected to us and feel like they are part of a team.
Through my decades of dog training, I have found only one training system that actually enables you and your dog to feel a connection on that deepest level. It is called Natural Dog Training and was created by Kevin Behan. Through this training, you and your dog will become part of a team, and obedience will naturally come with this connection.
