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 Trainers

Elena

Elena Miskoweic has had a lifelong passion for animals. She began training dogs at a young age with her family’s Beagles, but was limited by the age of her dogs and her lack of formal training. She decided to pursue a relationship with another dog, Stella, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Stella became the dog that started the joy of training in Elena. Since Stella, Elena has worked with hundreds of dogs of every breed type, age, and personality. Her training philosophy centers around the belief that both humans and canines should thoroughly enjoy the training process. Elena uses positive methods combined with creative problem solving and brainstorming to keep dogs interested and frustration levels down. Elena prides herself on communicating how to get behavior from a dog, why we are working on the specific behavior and creating a plan to maintain high training levels for the dog.

Holly

Cold Nose Canine dog training, owned by Holly Lewis- it’s where Milwaukee-area dog owners learn to make life safe, manageable, and fun for their canine loved ones! All of the techniques used are based on the latest research, which shows that training in a positive way—using food, touch, toys, praise, and life rewards—leads to a better-trained, happier dog. Plus, you get to build a loving and trusting relationship together. Your dog will be a willing participant, not a fearful partner!

Jenn

Jenn Prill with SideKick Dog Training says “I wouldn’t say I like dogs – I LOVE them! They’re so much fun and each dog is so individual. I thoroughly enjoy that having a dog training business has given me the opportunity to meet and get to know such a variety of pupper personalities. And I just can’t help but smile when I see them out and about or walking in the neighborhood!”

Great staff, easy drop off and pick up, easy scheduling and most of all my dog loves it there!

Tracy M.

Great place with great people who really take good care of your dog! We've been using Central Bark for two years for once a week daycare and have had numerous overnight stays, anywhere from a couple nights to two weeks.
I have nothing but good things to say about them. My husband likes the convenience of texting for availability. I like hearing how my dog's day went, and I love the pictures posted on Facebook!

I've had my dog groomed here twice.  They are not an inexpensive option but they do a nice job.  The employees care about the animals and it shows.

Lindsey M.

I have been taking my 10 year old dog here for a couple years now and she loves it!!  The staff is great with her. Drop off and pick up is always efficient. Love having the option for her to sleep over or be dropped off in my home if needed. I have used both services and highly recommend them if you have a need. I love the pictures they put on social media and always make sure to check them out on the days she is there.

We love Central Bark Eastside!!! My dog gets so excited when she knows we are going to daycare - she loves the staff and the other doggies. They take excellent care of her whether it be for daycare, boarding, or grooming. I also love that they post photos on social media so I can check on her during the day!

This location has *THE BEST* staff. Everyone is always happy and ready to help. Violet has been going here since she was a pup and now she is about to turn 4. I feel confidently comforted knowing she is being taken such good care of and having much fun. She has ample amounts of energy so when we both get home and I am ready to relax- so is she. 🙂

Heather has groomed my dogs for years! She is amazing. She is gentle and patient. My big dog has A LOT of issues including skin and behavioral issues after all of his hospital visits. I dont trust many people to help with him. She is an excellent groomer! I think my little dog might even have a crush on her. Bath time with Heather is great! Thankyou for being a rockstar!!! Your the best!!!

Sierra S.

My dog is a rescue and has an array of behavioral problems but Central Bark East Side has been nothing but helpful and kind to him! Thankful for a day care that doesn’t just dismiss a dog but will continuously work with him and make adjustments to make him feel more comfortable being away from home! Couldn’t ask for a better day care! Thank you.
