A Healthy, Balanced Day

Enrichment Dog Day Care offers a holistic blend of playtime, physical activity, socialization, educational experiences, relaxation, and tender loving care. Each day is customized to cater to your dog’s unique requirements and preferences, aiming to nurture their physical and mental well-being. This ensures you have a content, joyful, tranquil, and all-around well-adjusted dog at home.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization: Physical exercise is vital for your dog’s overall health, maintaining a healthy weight, muscle tone, and improving their mood. It also serves as an essential outlet for their physical and mental energy. Positive interactions with new humans, dogs, and environments foster well-rounded and well-socialized dogs. We offer both small and large playgroups in indoor and outdoor settings, tailored to your dog’s age, personality, and comfort level.
  • Rest: After active play and socialization, your dog requires adequate rest to recharge physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our daily schedule is meticulously designed to prevent overstimulation, striking the right balance between rest, play, and learning.
  • Learning: Dogs are constantly learning from humans and other dogs, shaping their understanding of appropriate social behavior. Our expertly trained staff employs positive training techniques to encourage your dog to practice healthy social behaviors.
  • Love and Attention: Your dog becomes an integral part of our family during their time with us. We foster a close bond with your dog, helping them feel comfortable and confident in our care. Through regular attendance, we gain a deep understanding of your dog’s personality, needs, and preferences. This familiarity enables us to notice subtle changes, such as shifts in mood, behavior, or even potential health issues, which might otherwise go unnoticed.

Commitment to Safety

Ensuring the safety and well-being of our guests is our utmost concern. As fellow dog parents, we cherish every dog as if they were our own, and we’re dedicated to maintaining a secure and healthy environment for everyone who steps into our facility. Your peace of mind is our priority.

Amazing! Staff are so welcoming and great! My dog has gone to day care since she was 6 months and I had a hard time finding ones I liked in Eugene. They are exactly what my girl needed 🙂 - Google Review

What’s a Behavior Assessment and why is it important?

As part of joining the Central Bark® family, our expert staff conducts a thorough behavior assessment at your local Central Bark store. These assessments help ensure that your dog is placed with a playgroup they’re comfortable with so they can play safely every day they’re with us.

This four-day evaluation, while your dog participates in our Enrichment Day Care, assesses your dog’s:

  • Comfort and social skills with people 
  • Social skills and playstyle with other dogs to help determine the playgroup and play schedule they can benefit from the most
  • Comfort in both indoor and outdoor play spaces
  • Comfort in rest areas and a crate 
  • Ability to share resources like water and toys in social settings
  • Level of comfort taking treats in social settings

This process gives us a chance to get to know you and your dog while your dog gets acquainted with their new favorite place away from home. Through the entire four days, your dog’s comfort and safety is our top priority.

Once your pup passes all the behavior assessment elements, you are welcome to sign up for any of our daycare services or a sleepover!

To schedule a Behavior Assessment for your dog, please contact your local store.

NOTEPlease bring all required signed forms, vaccination proof, and a collar and leash for your behavior assessment.

What should I bring to Doggy Day Care?

Once you have enrolled, we will need a copy of your dog’s vaccination records, which you can upload to your online account or bring with you on your scheduled first day. We also ask that your dog comes in on a regular 6-foot flat leash (no retractable or flexi-leads in the lobby) and a quick-release collar. Not sure what a quick-release collar is? No problem! We’ll be happy to show you on your first day. If your dog usually wears a harness while walking, you’re welcome to bring that as well.

If your dog typically eats a midday meal, you can bring it in an airtight container clearly labeled with your dog’s first and last names.
