About Intuitive Dog Training
“My approach taps into the dog’s innate psychology allowing us to communicate with them in a way they understand – allowing us to win their mind so we can then train their body.”
If you’re struggling with your dog and have a behavioral issue, or a puppy you just want to get a good start on, then I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned about dog behavior and training. Most issues arise because the dog is confused about his role in the family, they get too excited, and are unable in this state of mind to make good decisions. By teaching you simple exercises called The Dog Calming Code (that all dogs understand) your dog will look to you for leadership, and will listen when it really matters, and will be able to relax knowing you’ll make the big decisions.
The best way to assess your dog’s behavior issue(s) is to witness it in the environment where it regularly occurs, so I’ll come to you for a house call. Once I have a clear understanding of his/her situation and home environment we can set to work to modify and change the behavior forever.
Why Choose Intuitive Dog Training
I will teach you first how win your dog’s mind so you can then train their body.
This behavioral training method teaches you to think and communicate with your dog in a way that all dogs naturally understand. With clear, calm, and kind communication your dog will become “dialed in” and want to listen. You won’t feel like your dog is challenging you at every turn, and instead your dog will look to you for leadership and guidance. Gone are the days of being too embarrassed to take your dog out in public. This can be the beginning of a long relationship of respect and understanding between you and your dog.
Do you ever feel like you a fighting a losing battle with your dog? Are they challenging you and not listening? Are they out of control, and their behavior just continues to get worse? You are not alone, and I can help you turn the tables for you.
I believe there is a good dog inside every dog that is misunderstood or has behavioral issues. In order to help a dog you have to think like a dog. I can show you how to do just that and together we can resolve the following issues in a kind calm manner, and believe it or not your dog will WANT to learn and listen:
✔ SEPARATION ANXIETY
✔ PULLING ON THE LEASH
✔ NOT COMING WHEN CALLED
✔ OBSESSIONS & FEARS
✔ RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME
✔ JUMPING UP ON VISITORS
✔ JUMPING ON FURNITURE
✔ BARKING FOR ATTENTION
✔ BARKING AROUND THE PROPERTY
✔ BARKING IN THE CAR
✔ BARKING WHEN LEFT
✔ AGGRESSION TOWARDS OTHER DOGS
✔ AGGRESSION TOWARDS PEOPLE
✔ EATING POOP
"Ellen Nieslanik has been a Godsend to me and my new dog. I adopted my 3 1/2 year old female terrier about 4 weeks earlier. At first, I thought the shyness was due to her not knowing me but after 2-3 days, I realized she cowered and urinated with almost every movement I made. Things like walking toward her, raising my arm around her, and just reaching down to pet her would make her cower & pee. She also had the same reaction with any new person. I began to see the behavior was due to possible abuse, not just a timid dog. I spoke to a friend and she recommended Ellen Nieslanik. Ellen came to my house and for the first time in a month, I felt hope.
She is a wealth of information on how dogs think and how our behavior makes sense to them or not. She was so gentle and kind with Taffy. I could see differences even that day. She told me how I’ve got to behave in a way so Taffy sees me as her pack leader. She gave me homework and even in a few days, Taffy started improving. It can be slow at times. We have over 3 years of distrust of humans to overcome but with Ellen’s guidance, I know we can do it. Ellen has been available to me for questions by email and text which has been so helpful. I would recommend Ellen for any dog training, troubled or just if you want to train and understand your dog better."
