About Central Bark Amarillo

My name is Wyatt Smith and I am so excited to announce that I am the proud new owner of Central Bark Amarillo. While I know most of you from my tenure as manager of Central Bark, I just wanted to reassure you that you are going to receive the same level of care and commitment you have come to associate with Central Bark now that I have moved into an ownership position. Central Bark is like family to me, and I will continue to be on site handling day-to-day operations to ensure your dogs receive nothing but the best in care, service, and dedication you have come to expect.

What you might not know about me is that I grew up on a ranch just outside of Amarillo and have been surrounded by cattle, horses, dogs, and other animals all my life. I’m sure that’s where the foundation for my love of dogs comes from. In fact, over the last three years, we have fostered about 30-35 dogs with Gracie’s Project and Texas Pet Savers.

When the opportunity came up to purchase Central Bark, we knew it was our destiny because the business aligns so much with my core values – whole dog care that balances love, play, learning, and rest. My wife and I are lifelong dog lovers, and we currently own three dogs – a 13-year-old Boxer-Mastiff mix named Tex, a 3-year-old Blue Heeler Terrier mix named Flinn, and Rocky, our 5-year-old boxer. You’ll probably see Rocky with us at Central Bark. We look forward to seeing you at Central Bark Amarillo!

“I invite you to come by, call, or email us with any questions you may have about enrichment daycare for your dog!  I, along with my excellent staff, look forward to meeting yall!”

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.
