About Central Bark
More About Central Bark
At Central Bark Doggy Daycare, we pride ourselves on our commitment to outstanding service. Our facility serves as the home away from your home where your dogs become our staff’s extended family. Whether you’re stopping by for your pet to be pampered or dropping your furry child off at doggy daycare, our staff cares for your pet with the utmost of respect.
We like to refer to ourselves as an Unkennel, where unlike typical dog boarding establishments your dog does not spend all day cooped up in a kennel. Each dog not only enjoys their time at Central Bark, but looks forward to it. Unlike most other doggy daycares, Central Bark evaluates each dog by personality, breed, play style, sociability, temperament, size and age. This ensures that your pup gets the most out of their time with us while remaining safe at the same time.
We also understood that more than ever before, today's busy lifestyles make it difficult to give pets the attention, structure, training, exercise and mental stimulation necessary for happy and well-rounded lives. And the reality is, dogs crated or isolated for extended periods are deprived of social interaction, and can become lethargic or destructive.
At Central Bark, we want dogs to be dogs: Play dog, speak dog, be dog!
Doggy Day Care
At Central Bark, we understand the dog psyche and their need to exercise. Boredom leads to destructive behaviors like chewing, licking, digging, or barking. Play keeps a dog’s body and mind active. An active dog is a happy dog, and our goal is for your pet to be as happy as they can possibly be. Our staff supervises your dogs as they play in our designated dog exercise areas, while getting in on the action playing fetch and other games with our guests. Our staff is dedicated to ensuring that your dog is safe and well cared for at all times and each member of the staff is thoroughly trained in basic obedience, animal behavior, certified canine first aide and CPR.
We understand that you lead a busy lifestyle, and our goal is to support you and your pooch so that you can focus on your job and tend to your errands, meetings, appointments and other obligations. This is precisely why we offer Canine Cab services, our professional animal transportation system.
Our Canine Cab provides safe and friendly dog pick-up and drop-off services. Animal transportation can be purchased as part of your punch card and regularly scheduled as part of your package.
Central Bark is like the Vidal Sassoon of dog groomers. While in the care of professionals, your pooch can get pampered at our dog day spa. Whether it is just a dog nail trim or a Barkley Bath treatment, our dog grooming salon is fully equipped to handle even the furriest of canines.
At Central Bark, we partner with dog training professionals who embrace our pawlosophy. Our methods come from the reward-based, positive reinforcement school of thought. Central Bark offers an array of different training including puppy training, dog obedience training, dog agility training, and canine good citizen training. Classes are meant to encourage stronger relationships, build a foundation for good canine citizenship and create happy, social, well-rounded dogs.
Central Bark offers an alternative to traditional kennel boarding. While at Central Bark, your dog will feel like they are having a slumber party with all of their friends, reducing separation anxieties and other concerns associated with traditional kennel settings. Boarding a dog can be stressful on both the parent and the dog. Central Bark makes sure that each dog in our care receives special, personal attention so that you can rest assured that your dog is in good care.
If you love to party with dogs, Central Bark is the hottest spot in town! To celebrate any occasion, Central Bark has all sorts of plans and ideas to create a wonderful event. You can simply rent our space for your pooch’s big day and even have a complete catered party for your furry child and their friends.
Central Bark specializes in canine products and gifts for the discriminating dog-loving shopper. We carry everything from dog beds, dog toys, dog treats, dog collars, natural dog treats, and the best quality dog food in the market. Your dog deserves the best, and our dog boutique offers just that.
$100 gets you six days of day care and a visit with our Master Groomer.
