Dog Training & Enrichment Options:

Training Tutor

Personalized one-on-one training sessions during day care visits help your dog develop important skills and behaviors like name recall, sit, stay, down, wait, leave-it, door and gate control, and loose-leash walking. Excellent for your dog and easy for you! Your dog will come home tired and well-socialized, with the training and skills they need to be a well-behaved member of your family.

Enrichment Circuit Training

In addition to our daily Enrichment Day Care activities, your dog will participate in a circuit of three, 30-minute sessions with our Enrichment Specialist and a group of just five dogs. Sessions include Small Group Play, Canine Fitness and Agility, and Semi-Private Training Tutor. Ask an associate to learn more.

Rest Period Enrichment

Your dog gets to relax and recharge in their own private space with calming interactive toys and healthy food pairings tailored to their preferences and diet. 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.

Our Trainers

Abby

Certified Dog Trainer

Abby Seay has been a Georgia Peach all her life and knew early that animals had a very special place in her heart. Abby has been at Central Bark since 2016, beginning as a Dog Handler in playgroup, working her way up to Assistant Manager, becoming a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, and is now Store Manager of Central Bark! Abby has a fantastic relationship with all our clients – both two-legged and four-legged! As our trainer, Abby focuses on Training Tutor, Private School, In-Group Socialization, and Parent/Teacher sessions. She says that the best way to train any animal is to train the owner, and she loves to do so through education, helping families build a stronger bond with their pet through training. Abby strives to ensure parents aren’t just participating in a “training session” but instead are involved in a pawsitive relationship building experience with your best pal!!

Caren

Certified Dog Trainer

Caren embraces Central Bark’s reward-based paw-losophy that focuses on fun and positive reinforcement. Caren is a CPDT and ABC certified trainer, and has been training dogs since 2010. Caren was one of the first to join the Central Bark team shortly after it’s opening in 2014! Caren focuses on our Private School Program. Rather than training being conducted in group settings, Caren comes to your home and works with your family and your pup on a one-on-one basis. While Caren is thrilled to work with families on basic obedience, Caren’s is also truly passionate about working with a dog that may have developed a negative reaction to an experience; a dog who might be displaying some fear or reactivity. Helping these dogs become more comfortable with their surroundings is one of the most rewarding parts of training for Caren.
