Power Pooches is Jake and Sasha, just an average guy & my not so average dog, who crossed paths & became family. We both needed some help with anxiety issues, impulse control and reactivity.

To get help was not easy or affordable, and with so much information out there, it was also confusing. 

So I went on a research crusade and started a Dog care course. I followed this up with my certificates in Dog training and Dog psychology. The main reason was to help Sasha, but I quickly started helping other anxious dogs in my community.

This lead to a change in my own mental health as I had to become a calm and patient person to help dogs grow in confidence.

I found there is a large % of dogs with anxiety issues, and this is growing every year.

Training styles of the past, are not successful with anxious dogs and in fact, can make the problems worse, so we need new methods to help hese dogs.

Classes are also not a good environment to help anxious dogs. These pooches need individual care, patience and flexibility to learn how to make positive changes.

And owners need to start with educating themselves on the types of dogs they own.

Power Pooches found many owners are unaware of meeting the needs of dogs, like:

Mental stimulation,

Hours of sleep,

How noise affects dogs,

Interaction with children,

Breed characteristics,

Local laws and more.

So Power Pooches adopted an EDUCATE model.

Our aim is to teach you how meeting the needs of your pooch can lead to a happier, healthy lifestyle for you and your dog.

Power Pooches doesn't train, we teach. 

All dogs are welcome: reactive, anxious,

nervous, adults, older, rescues and pups. 

Please note: Power Pooches services are NOT for every one. We do not use aversion methods, halti's or negative cues. We do not believe you must be the pack leader. Our way is centered around positive rewards, education and learning how to read your dog. This will allow a deeper level of communication. Our services require a level of commitment from YOU. Without your time and effort,  you and your dog will not reap the benefits of our services.
