We have tried other doggy care places in town for our elderly French Bulldog and they couldn’t handle his special needs. Our vet recommended Mark and team from Central Bark — they were up to the challenge and exceeded our expectations! They are caring and gave us daily report cards with photos! He didn’t want to leave when we picked him up — he quickly learned they gave him lots of peanut butter with his meds. So grateful we found a wonderful place to leave him in his final years. Highly recommend Central Bark!

Mark and his team at Central Bark are simply AWESOME! Our sweet pup Islay really enjoys going to doggy daycare and it’s evident in the excitement and enthusiasm she shows every time my husband or I bring her to Central Bark. We enjoy getting early afternoon report cards with pics of Islay’s day with her furry friends. Central Bark has an excellent play space and enrichment curriculum! Thanks Mark and team for taking great care of our sweet pup.

My wife and I can not say enough good things about Central Bark! We drive out of our way to bring our furbaby here. Why? It is the best of the best! We trust them and they are so good to the dogs in their care. If you are looking for a place for your furbaby to go, seriously look no further!!

We took our puppy, Sterling, there for the puppy socialization class and he had a great time! We were able to watch the livestream and the team at Central Bark did a great job keeping all of the pups happy, safe, and engaged.

The professionalism of the staff at Central Bark is evident by the care and compassion that is displayed with each interaction with clients and their fur babies. The warmth of the staff makes them feel like family, even from our very first meeting. The facility is immaculate and well kempt, even with unannounced drop ins. The staff genuinely love dogs and take the time to make sure the dogs are comfortable while at daycare or grooming. I wish we had found them sooner!

Great staff and individualized care for my dog. Millie did not do well in a "typical" daycare setting, but thrives at Central Bark in small playgroups. Highly recommend!

Scheduled a grooming visit for our border collie mix Zoe. When we walked in we were greeted by Mark who is very welcoming and knowledgeable. There was a good vibe all around. The other patrons I encountered also seemed to be good natured. We did not use the daycare option (but would recommend based on the other patrons I encountered and I wouldn't hesitate to use their services if needed). Most importantly I felt comfortable leaving Zoe with them for her grooming. She smells great, looks beautiful and seems content. What more could I want?

We had Central Bark host a birthday party for our pups and we could not be happier at the end results! Central Bark was well-prepared, kept the party lively, and had knowledgeable staff that assisted the entire time. They made personable touches to their facility to accommodate our pups on arrival. Thanks for a great time!

Everyone is so kind at the office and they took great care of my two pups! Nails and ears were super clean and their coats looked amazing after the bath. They will be going back to Central Bark :-)

My doodle’s first time to be boarded and I’m so glad he stayed at Central Bark. The daily reports meant less worrying and they really responded to his needs! He was able to have a few of his toys and bones so he had something familiar. He will def be going back or daycare!! They really treated him with such kindness!

Our dog loves Central Bark! We are very picky about who watches our dog, they treat him like family!! It’s very clean and the staff is super friendly and helpful. My favorite part is the “report card” you get during the day with pictures and comments. Highly recommend!!

Our Aussie/Corgi Joey is sooooo handsome and smells soooo good after a quick trip to Central Bark each month. This place takes great care of our best friend and we look forward to trying some of their other services soon too!

Took my furbaby Seizo for his first daycare here at Central Bark and at first, he is very shy and has the "Miss my Daddy" attitude but I am confident that he will come out of his furry shell and will interact with his new buddies at the playgroup. I am very grateful for the staff at Central Bark for the gifts, feedback/report card on how my boy is doing and he will definitely be back here for more stays!

I brought our 8 week old puppy there today. Mark and Sam were very knowledgeable and sweet! The facility is spotless and offers training while your dog is there. So happy to have them in the neighborhood!

Mark & his team are awesome! The facility is very clean and the staff are friendly. I’ve previously taken my pup to another doggie daycare & Central Bark definitely interacts, plays and engages dogs much more. I also love that the staff utilize enrichment activities and some basic behavior commands. I’ll continue to drive a few extra minutes to bring my dog here!
