If you're looking for a place that makes your dog feel right at home and loved, this is the place! Not only is the staff knowledgeable and friendly but they genuinely care uniquely about every single dog. Plus the facility is always in top shape which is extra points!

Our pups LOVE this place. I can't tell you what a God-send it is to have a place we can trust to care for our girls. We go once a week, and the staff know each dog by name and greet them with affection. Our pups are a handful (despite our best efforts). It is easy to tell that all of the staff really do love the dogs in their care. AND, they go out of their way to make play groups safe and attentive to specific needs/ doggy relationships. We were able to have a "go-bag" packed and ready to board our girls here when our daughter was born. It was awesome to have that kind of support. Thanks, Central Bark!

My dog LOVES coming here! They always greet him by name and he is always so happy to see staff when we arrive. Drop off and pick up is always fast and easy, we love this place!

Alissa H.

After panicking, trying to find the perfect place to take my pup to be groomed, I found this place. I. LOVE. THIS. FACILITY. The staff is amazing and welcoming as soon as you walk in. They respond to emails and phone calls in a timely manner and your pup will be absolutely head over heels for the people. Lastly, the puppy enrichment program is a must - my pup had a pup card and videos to show how he behaved that day. They reinforced all of the commands he had been learning and it showed! Go people, go!
