The Ganske Family
Ganske's Bed and Biscuit is a family owned business ran by Patricia and Jonathon Ganske and our two children Brianna and Caleb. We were raised with a deep love and respect for all animal and love instilling that same belief into our children.
Patricia Ganske is a certified veterinary technician who also has a bachelor’s degree in animal science with a pre-veterinarian emphasis. She has worked in veterinary clinics, boarding facilities, and humane societies for over twenty years. She loves all things about animals and continues to take animal health classes; to keep up to date on the constant change of health care for animals. She loves working one on one with people and their pets as well as has a strong interest in animal nutrition and behavior. Another passion she has besides training dogs is working and training cats, yes they can actually be trained. She has trained/tamed several cats from Dane County Friends of Ferals, which is an organization that rescues cats that were going to be put to sleep because they are to wild and deemed unadoptable. You might see some of these kitties as well as our beautiful goats, alpacas, and sheep on our farm.
Patti Ganske is also a member of:
WVTA = Wisconsin Veterinary Technician Association
ABKA = American Boarding Kennel Association
SVBT = Society Of Veterinary Behavior Technician
BDACC = Beaver Dam Area Chamber of Commerce
Jonathon Ganske is a Beaver Dam native, and has a Bachelor’s degree in agriculture education. He has taught high school students about the care of animals, plants and conservation for over twenty years. He has also worked in boarding facilities for two years prior to opening their own. Prior to going to college his family owned a farm where they raised pigs, so his love for animals started young. He loves all animals and is looking forward to the opportunity of working with you and your pets. Besides working in the kennel he also teaches agriculture at the Beaver Dam High School.
Brianna Ganske , our daughter, has grown up helping us in the kennel. She enjoys helping out when she's not in school. She loves cuddling with the kitties and dogs. She's a runner and soccer player so she really loves running with the dogs in the yard and playing soccer with the ones that are interested. She is also following in her mothers footsteps when it comes to taming and training animals. She has helped with several of our feral cats and is now hoping to start training dogs. She is a Trenton Highlights 4-h member and is signed up for the dog project. She is hoping to train and show our Husky, Hakuna. Besides showing Hakuna she will be showing sheep so look for her at the fair.
Caleb is a helper in training. He is only four and has grown up so far helping us in the kennel. He loves cuddling with cats and running with the dogs. He has a real passion for talking and loves to great everyone that comes in to the kennel. He likes to share all he has learned so far about caring for animals with their owners. He enjoys also to share his books with the kitties and dogs that visit and hopes to one day be able to read them to them.
