Central Bark Cares

At Central Bark®, it’s our mission to nurture, enrich, and inspire lives. Bringing whole health, happiness, and unconditional love to each dog, family, and community, we serve to create a happier, healthier, more loving, and peaceful world.

That’s why we’re dedicated to supporting our local Amarillo community. For over 20 years, the Central Bark franchise system has supported local dog rescue, fostering, and adoption organizations and charities in cities throughout the country. We also provide community education through our Central Bark Bite Prevention School Program and responsible pet care and positive canine development. Central Bark Amarillo is independently owned and operated. As small business owners ourselves, we’re committed to supporting independently owned small local businesses that bring us together and help our community thrive.

“It is in our DNA to give back to the community. Passion, compassion, respect, and integrity are our core values and guiding principles. Being active in our community is part of that.”

Megan deserves a raise! She is the best and always does such a fantastic job with Gretyl and her stubbornness. Seriously, she does such a good job each time! 

April Lee

Always great service for this facility. They treat our dog Broady like family. I would give them 10 stars. Thank you Central Bark for your continuous hospitality.

Scout is always excited to go to doggie daycare. And he looks great after being groomed. Thank you. 

Megan Gaitan

Y’all were incredible!!! We were so nervous leaving our sweet girl for our vacation. But y’all made her so happy! We can tell she was well taken care of and had a blast! She will definitely be back!

Dawn Trahern

Thank you for helping us socialize our new puppies! We appreciate the care you have shown them both.  They love coming to Central Bark and we have noticed a huge improvement in their behavior!

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 without a problem in the world.  She is magic. Yes, I would most definitely recommend Central Bark to my friends. They're terrific.

Everyone at this facility very friendly. We have been looking for years for a nice clean place for our dogs and we have finely found a great place. Thanks Central Bark keep up the good work.

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.
