Think Pawsitive Dog Training, LLC is 34,000 square feet and is Wisconsin’s largest indoor canine education, exercise and sports complex. Our facility in Waukesha has several large training rooms in which we teach over sixty-five classes each week for dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes and abilities. Our training services include puppy and adult manners classes, canine disc (Frisbee), nose work (canine scent detection), a progressive program of agility training classes and a variety of workshops/seminars.

An exceptional activity for you and your dog to enjoy, is our TAILS Academy day training program, a structured and FUN day for your dog, developing reliable skills and tailored activities/exercise with our instructors.

Our “K9 Splash” aquatics center is a place for you and your dog to enjoy a private session in our canine water treadmill or swimming in our 41′ x 21′ pool which is a safe, clean, comfortable environment that encourages endurance training, rehabilitation, dock diving, or interactive play.

The highlight of our facility is our 8,500 square-foot, artificially turfed arena in which we hold approximately 40 canine sports or activities each year, drawing hundreds of competitors, spectators and dog enthusiasts from all over the Midwest. We also offer a retail area, committed to promoting unique, safe and healthy products to help you and your dog achieve success in your training endeavors. Come visit our facility, we can’t wait to meet you!

Meet The Owner

Chasing my dreams

My passion for pets led me to creating Think Pawsitive Dog Training. Growing up I longed to have a place where dogs and their owners could go to enhance their minds and bodies. After years of work my team and I, with help of an awesome community, have built the largest dog training facility in Wisconsin. I urge you to come and check us out. This place is the culmination of all my hopes and dreams.

Our Vision

Globally enriching human and canine relationships through endless possibilities.

Our Mission

Think Pawsitive is a team of committed, positive, and successful dog trainers who strive to be patient, dedicated, and honest. We promote safe, healthy, and rewarding relationships between dogs and their owners. What makes us unique is that our program allows dogs to “Think” and students to be very “Pawsitive” and patient as they interact with their canine companions.

We work within our 12 Points of Culture to ensure that everyone who engages with the Think Pawsitive team benefits greatly; moving closer to developing a stronger canine/human relationship and to achieving the goals they have set for themselves.

We create and foster a fun, interactive learning environment. We educate our clients and ourselves with world-class presenters and training opportunities. Relationships develop through unparalleled education, training, and endless fulfilling and mutually enriching exercise and activities.

We believe every dog has incredible potential regardless of age, breed, background, or temperament. Our students are forward-thinking, open to learning and growth, and are dedicated to the development of their relationship with their dogs. No matter what the activity, our students desire and allow us to help them in achieving their training goals.

Our commitment to being Wisconsin’s biggest and best, state-of-the-art indoor canine fitness and sports center entails providing new products and services of the highest standards, quality, and value. We apply the most current, positive and effective training methodologies available. We take great pride in all areas of our facility and equipment. We work diligently to maintain exceptional standards, systems, and efficiencies to ensure that each visitor enjoys a safe, clean, and “five-star” experience every time they visit us.

Think Pawsitive is very proud of our commitment to our community through our charitable support of local non-profits, civic groups, and dog rescues. We are dedicated to bringing canine education to a wide range of youth in our community. We share our passion and resources to deliver innovative programming and activities to foster the human-canine bond to our community’s young people.

This is a very special and exciting place where dogs come to play, learn new skills and sports, or build strength and endurance for daily activity. Our clients look forward to an exhilarating experience each time they visit Think Pawsitive. We pride ourselves on delivering impeccable service and quality and to make our visitors and their canine companions a welcome addition to our family.
