We had a great first day experience at Central Bark. From the "Welcome Grover" message board at check-in to the "report card" we received at check-out, we feel very fortunate to have found Central Bark for our mini-goldendoodle.

My dog, Mini, is learning her social skills and meeting new dogs at Central Bark. I was really impressed with the report card I received on her behavior. Jennifer and her staff have gone above and beyond to integrate Mini in her environment. I love this place.
