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 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.


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 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!”
