Dog Training & Enrichment
Help your dog be the best they can be
A well-trained dog is a happy dog – and part of a happy family. At Central Bark® Wauwatosa, our dog training professionals use fun and positive, reward-based techniques to help dogs of all ages develop important life skills and behaviors.
We offer both individual training and enrichment sessions as well as group classes to reinforce good habits and foster the loving bond you have with your dog. Training builds a foundation for good canine citizenship and helps develop happy, social, and well-rounded dogs.
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!
