Great daycare. My shy pup loved it and he came home so tired and happy! They are very structured in introducing newcomers so it made me feel safe and comfortable dropping my dog off for the day.

We love and are so comfortable with sending our dog to Central Bark. He always comes home and is happy and healthy - not overly tired from an “anxious” atmosphere as we have experienced at other dog daycares. Thanks for being so great with him! We highly recommend!

What is dog training?

Dog training teaches a dog to perform certain behaviors, often in a variety of contexts. At Central Bark®, our training classes are based on the latest research and scientific understanding of dog behavior to enhance the bond between you and your dog.  

We use positive reward-based techniques to help puppies and dogs of all ages develop essential life skills and behaviors that will enrich their lives at home and day care. These methods set dogs up to succeed and reward them for performing desired behaviors. Rewards are tailored to the dog’s preferences and can include food treats, time to play with a favorite toy, or verbal praise.
