Welcome To Central Bark Atlanta – Doggy Day Care Services

Our four-legged companions hold a special place in our hearts. That’s why we all strive to provide them with the best possible life. However, meeting all of their needs can be a daunting task. Central Bark Atlanta is a trusted choice for families who want to ensure their pups receive the love they deserve.

Our facility in Atlanta is a haven for dogs where they can play with their buddies and enjoy their day. We provide a secure and nurturing environment, giving you the peace of mind that your dog is in good hands.

At our doggy day center, we adopt a holistic approach to taking care of your furry friend. We call it the “Whole Dog Care” approach. Our objective is to support and enhance the overall health and well-being of your dog throughout their lifespan. The Enrichment Doggy Day Care program is at the core of this approach. Yet, we also provide additional services like boarding, grooming, training, market, and baths. All have the aim of helping you and your dog enjoy the best life possible.

We understand that dogs aren’t just pets but are an integral part of your family. Being dog parents ourselves, we take immense pleasure in treating each dog with the same care and attention that we give to our own pets.
