Proud Paws is owned and managed by Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Behavior 

Consultant, Jessica Powell.


Born and raised in the UK, Jessica has extensive and dynamic knowledge within the field

of animal behavior and welfare and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Management.


Jessica's life long passion for animals and their co-existence with humans began with large wildlife species such as elephants, monkeys and lions and and has taken her around the world to work in fields such as, Environmental Conservation, Behavioral Research and Human-Animal Conflict Resolution. Her ultimate focus on our beloved canine companions was inspired by her two rescued Pit Bull Terriers, Lola and Levi, who remind her every day of the joy and humble fulfillment that these best friends can bring into our lives.


Jessica offers private consults and training sessions in the comfort of your home that are tailored to you and your dog's individual needs and provide a flexible, creative and supportive learning experience. Jessica is dedicated to helping parents improve their relationship with their dogs and establish clear and effective communication that is founded on confidence, compassion and respect from both sides, leading to a calm, engaged and well-behaved companion. Jessica has a vast amount of experience with manners training and behavioral modification. In addition, she holds a Diploma in Childcare and Education and has coached many young children on the concept of kindness and safe awareness toward animals.


In addition to her work in the private sector, Jessica is an experienced shelter professional. She has provided guidance for many new pet parents on how to best create a smooth transition and happy ending for their new rescue, as well as having successfully modified the behavior of the seemingly 'unadoptable'.
