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

Jenn Prill

As you’ll probably hear from anyone working in the pet industry, my love of and passion for dogs extends back to my childhood! I decided to make training dogs my profession, though, in 2016 when I founded SideKick Dog Training in Milwaukee, WI. Since then, I have enjoyed every opportunity to get to know both the furry and human end of the leash during group classes and private sessions; I am so grateful to be able to do what I love and happy to be helping people with their furry SideKicks!

I am whole-heartedly committed to using force-free, reward-based training methods that foster, develop, and strengthen the relationship between a dog and their human. I’m dedicated to continuous education and learning about science-based, effective methods for teaching our furry companions how to navigate this difficult human world. On top of being effective, it’s important to me that training be fun and easy to incorporate into our daily lives with our SideKicks!

I currently share my home with my husband and one dog, Ruby, who is often providing us with opportunities to learn and grow as pet parents and trainers (wink, wink).

My dog loves going to Central Bark! He gets lots of playtime and socialization and that’s just what I was hoping for. The handlers are so kind and seem to make it a priority to get to know each dog in their care. Thanks Central Bark Tosa for all you do for our pets!
