Hi, my name is Danielle and I appreciate you checking out Pawleaks.
I founded Pawleaks together with my partner and our Rottweiler Amalia with one goal in mind.
We help dog owners understand their furry friends better in order to provide optimal care.
To achieve that, we cover everything from dog health & care all the way to canine behavior & training.
Most articles are served with a pinch of personal experience and actionable steps.
But there’s a major difference to most other resources out there.
Our Mission & Team: Training & Care Backed By Science
We aim to provide concise, engaging, and research-backed information for dog owners.
What makes us unique?
We’re neither nameless Marketing people nor mega-corporation. That comes with a couple of benefits.
Firstly, we don’t rely on investors, sponsors, or any brand for that matter.
Furthermore, we‘re actually real, breathing dog owners just like you.
I‘ve devoured hundreds, if not thousands, of studies, read books, and conversed with trainers, vets, and pet care experts to unpack all that Jazz in over 1 million written words.
Have you heard about my newsletter where I break down 3 interesting studies and stories every week?
You can sign up here for my weekly newsletter. At no cost, of course.
But that’s not all.
Health articles are fact-checked to make sure they’re medically accurate and contain up-to-date information.
Who does the fact-checking thingy?
We have a team of licensed veterinarians who make sure what you’ll get are facts, not fiction.

Dogs Are My Passion
My personal passion is canine cognitive behavior and I strongly believe that 99% of all behavior problems come down to a lack of understanding and knowledge between you and your dog.
A strong bond is the very foundation of every training.
But the materials that make that foundation possible include proper health & care.
Mind and body are always connected.
Understanding how your dog perceives and reacts to the world surrounding him will give you a better picture of what needs to be done in order to improve communication.
Knowledge, training, exercise, and communication are the magic ingredients alongside proper care under the supervision of a veterinarian you trust.
I would also like to raise the awareness that every dog owner needs to do the proper research before rescuing a dog or bringing home a puppy.
Fewer dogs would end up in shelters if adoption would be viewed as a lifetime commitment and if the right research on the breed would be done.
Remember, there are no bad dogs.
The anthropomorphism of dogs in today’s society is dangerous and creates miscommunication.
A dog is a companion, not an accessory, not a toy, and not a creature without feelings
And yes, dogs cost money.
While I cannot provide veterinary advice and nothing on this site is intended to replace a veterinarian or professional behaviorist, it can be a great starting point.
Every new visitor or subscriber is a friend to me and can help change the way people think about and treat dogs.
If you would like to talk to me, you can send me a message here or leave a comment on one of my posts.
My beautiful Rottweiler Amalia is my heart and my soul.
She makes me smile every day and I love to play, train, and go on adventures with her.
She is the sweetest dog I have ever met and the happiest of them all.
She is the reason I want to help as many dog owners as possible so they can experience the same relationship that I have with her.
Her favorite things in life are people and dogs and she gets very excited about balls and every possible food!
Through daily training, in-depth socialization, and proper care I now have a confident and reliable companion that can enjoy her life without fear or uncertainty.
