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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dog grooming?

Dog grooming helps keep your dog clean, healthy, and comfortable. It can include anything from a simple brush-out or bath to a full spa day, complete with a grooming session and nail care. 

All dogs are unique. Just like humans, your dog deserves personalized grooming for their size, breed, coat type, and condition. Please ask an associate for details.

Make a reservation for your dog’s grooming session.

Do you offer dog birthday parties?

Yes! We love to celebrate our dog friends’ birthdays. You can rent space in our facility to celebrate, then bring in your treats and decorations. Or you can have us plan and run your entire event. 

Contact us to schedule your dog’s party! 

Can a puppy be boarded?

Yes. We offer sleepovers to puppies and dogs enrolled in our Enrichment Day Care. Sleepovers at Central Bark® provide your dog a calm, relaxing sleepover in a place they can feel comfortable and loved. Because they’re in a familiar place, they can feel less stressed about being away from home (and so will you). A full day of Doggy Day Care is complimentary with your sleepover stay.

Learn more about Sleepovers at Central Bark.

How long does dog training take?

The timeline for learning new behaviors and skills is as unique as every dog! Because each dog is an individual, with different learning histories, breed genetics, and preferences in reinforcers like treats and toys, there is no way to say for sure how long training will take. It’s also important to consider how much time each family has for daily training practice.

Whether you’re crate training, leash walking, or potty training your pup, consistency is key. It’s crucial to establish a routine, practice positive reinforcement, supervise your puppy (especially when potty training), and avoid punishing your puppy when mistakes happen. 

Central Bark® offers everything you need to help you train your dog, with expert training and classes so you and your pup can learn and bond together.
