Dog Training & Enrichment Options:

Training Tutor

Personalized one-on-one training sessions during day care visits help your dog develop important skills and behaviors like name recall, sit, stay, down, wait, leave-it, door and gate control, and loose-leash walking. Excellent for your dog and easy for you! Your dog will come home tired and well-socialized, with the training and skills they need to be a well-behaved member of your family.

One-on-One Enrichment

Personalized One-on-One Enrichment sessions give your dog the extra attention they love and the freedom to use their senses and safely explore their instincts through interactive toys, puzzles, and games. It’s fun and rewarding and exercise their bodies and minds and engage their senses. Add complexity with fitness and agility equipment.

Rest Period Enrichment

Your dog gets to relax and recharge in their own private space with calming interactive toys and healthy food pairings tailored to their preferences and diet. It promotes physical and mental relaxation which can help them achieve a healthy balance of play, learning, and rest. It can also help them become more comfortable in crates by building positive associations.

Our Trainer

Carly Brown

Hello, I’m Carly Brown! I’ve had a passion for animals since I was a young child and I’m so grateful that my professional journey has led me here. I am certified as both a Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a Fear-Free Professional. As a trainer, I value science-based approaches to learning and am committed to practicing reward-based methods of teaching.

​Every year I aim to progress my knowledge and practical skills by staying up to date as science and the animal training industry continues to grow. I regularly attend continuing education opportunities, both at in-person national conferences, like Clicker Expo, and virtually through venues like Control Unleashed and The Lemonade Conference, among many others.

When working with dogs I love to train life skills, support behavior through behavior modification, and explore the world of dog sports like disc, nose work, and competitive obedience. I live on a 16-acre farm with my husband, multi-dog household, horses, and cats; I love my crew!

Beth K.

All 3 of my dogs love coming here. Each is an individual and treated and appreciated that way. I'm on my second generation of Central Bark-Mequon dogs, having experienced their compassion on the loss of the first one who introduced me to daycare. I can't imagine a better, safer, more enjoyable experience for our dogs.
