About Central Bark Brookfield

Jessica Whitney’s true passion has always been her rescue dogs. Jessica was one of the first customers at the Central Bark – Wauwatosa location over 15 years ago. She proudly adopted one of Central Bark’s first foster dogs named Benny. Shortly after purchasing the Central Bark-Brookfield location, she decided she wanted to give back to the dog community that had given her such love and joy.

There are pivotal moments in our lives that open our eyes to both the beauty and the tragedy of our world. In 2017, a pivotal moment prompted her to act to make a difference.

After the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, she was compelled to do something. Her love for dogs drives almost every action in her life. The shelters in Houston were struggling because so many animals were injured or displaced due to the storm. So, she collected supplies and raised some money, and her and a partner made the long trek to Houston, arriving ready and eager to help. This experience touched Jessica in such a way that she decided to form her own dog rescue to continue to give back to the community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dog boarding?

Dog boarding gives your dog a safe and comfortable place to spend the night when they can’t be home overnight. It can last for just one night or for a week or more at a time.

At Central Bark®, we offer Sleepovers to dogs enrolled in our Enrichment Day Care Program. Sleepovers at Central Bark® provide your dog a calm, relaxing sleepover in a place they can feel comfortable and loved. Because they’re in a familiar place, they can feel less stressed about being away from home (and so will you). A full day of Doggy Day Care is included with your sleepover stay.

Our Stay-n-Play program (available at participating locations) offers boarding for dogs that have not enrolled in our day care program. Each overnight guest gets a restful night’s sleep, followed by a day of play, exercise, and plenty of TLC from our staff. Stay-n-Play guests sleep and play in their own designated areas.

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.
