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.

We have used other places for our doggy needs in the past, but now that we've found Central Bark on Monroe, we'll be using them from now on!

The staff was so helpful and interested in making our dog, Bailey, comfortable and happy when we dropped her off. The owner, Jennifer, seemed hands-on with every dog, and Bailey really took to her. The other staff member we met was fantastic also. We could tell that we weren't "just another dog" and that Bailey would be getting personal attention. They also groomed Bailey while she was there, and they did a great job. Can't speak highly enough about the whole experience.

My dog absolutely loves going to Central Bark in Matthews/Charlotte. The staff there is amazing and their facility is always very clean. The owner is very engaged with the pet owners as well as the dogs that visit there. I will be a longtime client for sure. I am very happy that Central Bark decided to make it's home right down the road from my house!

We love Central Bark from the moment they opened! They are tentative to Boone's needs and do such a great job pairing dogs together to enjoy a full fun day with each other. We go there every week for daycare and have even used their boarding services AND grooming! Boone has finally found his favorite Charlotte/Matthews daycare.

Everyone needs to go to Central Bark! A little back story- I was leaving for vacation for 3 days and had to board my little dog. I was so nervous and spent 3 days researching, calling, and reading reviews of places around Charlotte until I luckily found Central Bark on google. I created an account and got a call from Jennifer where she listened to my wants and invited me to tour. I toured the following week and can't express how clean and well kept their new facility is. I immediately booked, and I'm so happy I did! While I was very nervous to leave my pup, the team at Central Bark was very understanding, friendly, and let me know he was in good hands. I emailed/called the entire trip and they were very responsive and friendly! My dog was sad to leave, but I can reassure we'll be back! Thank you Jennifer and team for being so awesome and taking such good care of Atticus. As someone who wants THE BEST for their dog- I highly recommend Central Bark for any daycare/ boarding needs!!!!!!

Central Bark is close to my home, BUT I didn’t choose them just because of location. Jennifer and team truly cares about the welfare of each animal and they present a nurturing environment...I have two elderly pups that still possess quite a bit of energy and have very different personalities (one is very human oriented and the other is yappy towards larger dogs). Both pups are so excited to come to doggy day camp and I would not hesitate to use them for other needs (overnight, vacations, grooming, etc). Central Bark has also groomed our pups and they always leave happy-which is a feat since they don’t love being groomed. Highly recommend this business and encourage everyone to check out this lovely business!

We LOVE central bark!! Our high energy aussie gets all the physical and mental stimulation he needs here. I appreciate how attentive the staff is with each dog and their communication is wonderful. I can't recommend CB enough!!

Nancy K.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Central Bark! Our Scottish Terrier has been there weekly since they opened. She literally runs toward the door and inside when we arrive there for "Fun Friday." Jennifer and staff operate a spotless, energetic environment where you can be assured your pup will be safe and have a blast with others. They take great care to group compatible breeds and personalities. They get a HIGH FIVE from our Paisley!
