Enrichment Dog Day Care 

Dog Day Care. Reimagined.

The bond between you and your furry companion is truly special. However, our busy lifestyles can sometimes make it difficult to meet all of our dogs’ needs to keep them content and healthy. This can result in issues such as loneliness, boredom, weight gain, anxiety, and unwanted behaviors at home.

That’s where Central Bark® Amarillo Enrichment Dog Day Care comes in. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where your dog can play, learn, and socialize. Through social interaction, mental challenges, and physical activity, we ensure your dog receives the stimulation they need to lead a happy and healthy life.

Our focus on canine enrichment is designed to improve your dog’s overall well-being. Through engaging activities that stimulate their senses, encourage problem-solving, and build confidence, we aim to enhance their quality of life. You can rest assured knowing that your dog is enjoying a fantastic day with their furry friends. Enrichment Dog Day Care is our specialty, and we pride ourselves on providing an experience like no other.

A Healthy Balanced Day

At our enrichment doggy day care, we offer a well-rounded experience for your furry friend. Each day is customized to meet your dog’s specific needs and preferences and includes:

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization: Regular exercise helps dogs maintain a healthy weight and uplifts their mood, providing an outlet for their energy. Positive interactions with humans, dogs, and environments foster well-adjusted and sociable pets. We offer small and large playgroups in both indoor and outdoor areas, catering to your dog’s age, personality, and comfort level.
  • Rest: Adequate rest is essential for your dog’s overall health. Our daily schedule ensures they have time to relax and recharge, maintaining a healthy balance between activity and rest.
  • Learning: Dogs learn from each other and our experienced staff, who use positive training techniques to encourage safe and healthy interactions. Through guided play, dogs practice good social behavior and learn from their peers.
  • Love: Your dog becomes part of our family while they’re with us, receiving all the affection and attention they need. With regular attendance, we build a strong bond with your dog, allowing us to understand their personality, preferences, and any potential issues that may arise.

Commitment to Safety

The safety and well-being of our guests are our utmost priority. As fellow dog parents, we treat each and every dog with the same care and attention we would give our own furry companions. We are dedicated to creating a healthy and secure environment for all who come through our doors.

Doggy day care dogs

Flexible Group Play

Flexible playgroups allow us to match your dog with the social atmosphere and play schedule they can enjoy and benefit from most. This helps give them a healthy balance of play, rest, and learning and creates a safer social environment with a better quality of play. And our lower dog-to-staff ratios offer more individual attention, education, and love.

Group Play Skills

Interactive group activities and positive reinforcement help dogs practice important skills like name recall, and behaviors like group sit and calmly going in and out of doors and gates. These activities are fun and rewarding for your dog and help improve behavior and impulse control, prevent overstimulation, and create a safer social environment.

It promotes physical and mental relaxation which can help them achieve a healthy balance of play, learning, and rest. It can also help them become more comfortable in crates by building positive associations.

One-on-One Enrichment

Personalized One-on-One Enrichment sessions give your dog the extra attention they love and the freedom to use their senses and safely explore their instincts through interactive toys, puzzles, and games. It’s fun and rewarding and exercise their bodies and minds and engage their senses. Add complexity with fitness and agility equipment.

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 [...]

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.

Is there enough outdoor space to accommodate all dogs on nice days and indoor space when the weather is poor?
