doggy day care Broadview Heights benefits: love, play, learn, rest

A Healthy, Balanced Day

Our doggy day care in Broadview Heights provides a holistic blend of play, exercise, socialization, learning, rest, and affection. Each day is tailored to your dog’s unique needs and preferences, nurturing their body, mind, and senses for a serene, well-rounded companion at home.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization are key components. Exercise maintains their weight and muscle tone while enhancing mood and channelling their mental energy, resulting in a calmer demeanour at home. Positive interactions in varied settings create socially adept and content dogs. Our indoor and outdoor play areas offer both small and large group settings suited to your dog’s age, personality, and comfort level.
  • Rest is equally vital. Amidst play and socializing, rest time is crucial for their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our schedule ensures a balanced mix of rest, play, and learning to prevent overstimulation.
  • Learning happens naturally. Dogs learn from humans and each other, and our trained staff utilize positive techniques to encourage safe play and instill healthy social behaviors in your dog during their time at daycare.
  • Love is at the core. Your dog becomes a part of our family, receiving ample love and attention while you’re away. This bond fosters their comfort and confidence. Regular attendance allows us to understand your dog’s personality, needs, and preferences, enabling us to notice subtle changes, moods, behaviors, or even health concerns that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Commitment to Safety

Our utmost priority is the safety and well-being of all our guests. As dog parents ourselves, we treat every dog like family and are devoted to providing a healthy, secure environment for everyone in our facility.

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.

So unbelievably happy to have this wonderful place nearby. Our seven-month-old puppy is never so excited to get in the car as when she thinks she's going to daycare. She's a herding breed that can be shy of other dogs, but the staff has done a great job finding her [...]

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dog day care?

Dog day care gives dogs a fun place to play with their friends while their owners are busy at home and work.

At Central Bark®, doggy daycare is our specialty, and nobody does it quite like us. We don’t just give dogs a place to play. We create a personalized program of activities that optimize your dog’s whole health – their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

Central Bark goes beyond a traditional doggy day care with our unique Whole Dog Care philosophy. Our personalized approach helps enrich your dog’s whole health and well-being throughout their entire life so you can enjoy a healthy, happy, and loving life together.

The heart of our whole dog care approach is our Enrichment Doggy Day Care program. We combine Central Bark’s industry-leading doggy day care expertise with the latest dog behavior science.

Do I need to bring bedding, toys, or treats for my dog?

Nope! We got you covered! Most dogs will not need any bedding for a single day of day care. If your dog is boarding with us, see our Sleepover Guidelines. As far as treats and toys, we have plenty! Please ask about which toy and treat products are available.

How does Central Bark mentally stimulate a dog?

At Central Bark®, our goal is to provide a balanced day of play, learning, rest, and love. Learning and mental exercise can happen in various ways, including training activities, brain games, scent work, and more. Our playgroups offer several hours of active playtime paired with learning opportunities during Group Play Skills. This way, dogs have plenty of time to socialize and get their energy out, while also exercising their minds through learning.

During one of your dog’s rest periods throughout the day, they are offered a rest period enrichment activity to stimulate their mind while encouraging healthy rest. These licking and chewing activities involve food rewards, such as frozen peanut butter KONG®. These activities engage their minds while helping foster quality rest. 

Did you know? Scientific studies have shown that licking and chewing behaviors (especially those that involve food rewards!) are self-soothing, decrease heart and respiratory rates, and even release dopamine in a dog’s brain.

Training Tutor sessions stimulate the dog’s minds and bodies and help them learn important skills, behaviors, and tricks.

One-on-One Enrichment sessions give the extra attention dogs love and the freedom to use their senses and safely explore their instincts through interactive toys, puzzles, and games.

Did you know? 15 minutes of mental activity is equal to 30 minutes of physical exercise!
