Welcome to Central Bark Amarillo

There’s nothing quite like the bond we have with our furry companions. Our dogs hold a special place in our hearts, and we always strive to give them the best life possible. However, meeting all of their needs can sometimes be a challenge.
That’s where Central Bark comes in.

Families rely on us to provide the love and care necessary to keep their dogs healthy, happy, and well-rounded. When you bring your dog to Central Bark Amarillo, you can trust that they’ll spend their day enjoying the company of friends in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our approach to Whole Dog Care focuses on nurturing and enhancing every aspect of your dog’s health and well-being throughout their lifetime. At the core of this approach is our Enrichment Dog Day Care program. Additionally, we offer services such as dog boarding, baths, grooming, a market for pet supplies, training, and more. All are designed to help you and your dog experience the best life together.

We understand that dogs aren’t just considered family – they are family. As dog parents ourselves, we take immense pride in treating each and every dog that walks through our doors as if they were our own.

Central Bark in Amarillo is the nicest place. I call, and they are always friendly, they remember Ava, and can get her in when I need them to. I can't clip Ava's nails, the vet had to put a muzzle on Ava to clip her nails. Meagan clips Ava's nails [...]

Mavis seems to really like Central Bark.  The pics I see on Instagram show her quite active with other dogs, and she comes home in the evening extremely tired.  I know she has played all day and she loves playing with other dogs.
