Central Bark Grayslake is an excellent facility. The staff is friendly, professional and extremely dedicated to each of the puppies attending the day care. The facility is clean and very well managed. Central Bark Grayslake is a positive environment and my puppy loves her days there.

What a great place to bring your pet. I just love how we walk in the door and they greet our dog by name and seem genuinely excited to see him. Our Marley always gets super excited as we pull down their street and up to the building! I would definitely recommend Central Bark!

I brought my 15 year old toy poodle here for the first time today and they did an excellent job. My dog can be a little bit of a drama queen and they made sure she was comfortable and happy the whole time. Highly recommend!

My German shepherd pup could not be more excited to go to day care! He has a great time and comes home tired. I can also rest assured that the staff contacts me if there is something to be concerned about! They are amazing!

Such wonderful and friendly staff! They have helped our little Ruby come out of her shell, learn new concepts, and get her moving and exercising while we are at work. They also have great hours and sell quality items.

Love this place! My pup is well taken care of here. The team treats your dog like their own. My pup is always greeted with love and attention. Plus, she comes home tired from having fun all day. Money well spent here!

I bring my dog in monthly or bimonthly for grooming services, I cant review their daycare: my dog has fear aggression and I always bring him in with muzzle on. They are happy to work with him and cut his nails/express his anal glands and always do a great job with him. They even clean his back end off after the expression so my car doesnt smell after.

Our puppy is always excited to go to Central Bark. Drop off and pick up are very efficient and having a tired out puppy at the end of the day is a nice bonus.

They're 100% on top of it. My puppy comes home happy and tired after day care every single time she goes. I'd rate them more stars if I could.

I highly recommend Central Bark! They have an awesome groomer named Lisa Deguiseppi that is very passionate about her job, she takes such good care of our dog Max. If you’re looking for a place that goes the extra mile this is it! Thank you Lisa for all you do for Max!

Love, Love, Love this place! Most organizations have rules against pitbulls but Central Bark Grayslake welcomed my pup with open arms! He's gone to the daycare and grooming and has always come home happy and ready to go back. Thanks for all the love you give our little Gunner :)

It’s hard to put in to words how great this place is. Our dog goes once a week and the people here are always friendly and post pictures through out the day of the dogs playing. We wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I have been bringing my dog to Central Park since she was a puppy. I am not exaggerating when I say she LOVES IT!!!! I cannot get her in the door fast enough and the staff can't her to the play area fast enough. She has made many friends there and always comes home happy and tired. I know she is in goods with the staff and her doggy friends whether she is there for a day or for an overnight or even an extended overnight.

Laura and Kevin run a high quality establishment. Our 1 yo Lab rescue has very bad separation anxiety. He had all types of issues including not knowing how to play with other dogs. Central Bark Grayslake has helped transform him into a more confident dog. Everyone I have encountered at CBGL has been professional and communicated clearly about his progress. He is attached to Rebecca and she definitely has a sweet spot for him. We just did our first overnight to prep for our upcoming vacation and everything went well. I am so pleased we trusted CBGL with our dog. I love that I get to see him on Facebook looking happy and goofy during the day. He has the sweetest look on his face in the morning when he realizes we are leaving for the daycare. Thank you CBGL!!!

My puppy Oliver just loves going to daycare each week! The staff is friendly, professional and genuinely cares for their pups! It's been great for me too, as it allows me to get errands and work done around the house without worrying about my dog.

My dog has pretty bad separation anxiety so I wasn’t sure how he would handle going to daycare, so I decided to try out Central Bark and he absolutely loved it! He acted like he has been there before the first time we walked in. He did a great job getting along with the other dogs and staff. The owners were there when I dropped him off and picked him up and were super friendly! I will definitely be bringing my dog here more often!

This place is a dog mom's dream. Here, my dog has the opportunity to socialize with dogs of all ages and sizes. The staff is incredible and is always willing to give updates at pick up. My favorite part? They take pictures of the pups during the day and post them on social media so that dog mama's like myself can see what their little guys and gals have been up to that day.

Central Bark Grayslake is amazing. Howie absolutely loves going to daycare. He is terrified of storms, but he will go to Central Bark when its raining. He loves it that much! Sending him for overnight stays at Central Bark Grayslake gives us so much peace of mind. Howie loves being there so much that he is always excited to stay. They post pictures of the dogs every day so we can check on him and see that he is having a good time. We are so grateful to the staff at Central Bark Grayslake. They take such good care of Howie.

I take my dog here once a week to break up the week! She loves it. Facilities are always clean, and the staff is great! They also post photos of all the dogs in day care on their Facebook group each day! It’s a great way to check in and see all the happy playful pups and see how yours is doing!
