The Eugene Central Bark is amazing! Monika and the entire staff are professional, friendly, highly educated, knowledgeable and caring. They respond to emails/calls at lightning speed. My dog attends daycare and gets groomed at their facility. He gets spoiled with treats during his grooming session. He's a long-haired german shepherd that loves to roll in mud and puddles at dog parks. I only trust Monika and her team to care for him. We also love shopping at their retail store. Unfortunately, we relocated so my dog doesn't attend daycare there anymore. But we drive there just for the grooming. You won't find a better group of people that will provide care for your dog like the Eugene Central Bark.

...After his first day of daycare Eugene (my adorable Bostie) was fantastically happy and exhausted. I got a wonderful report card on how his day went and how he played with other dogs, things they noticed, and anything I should watch out for. The structured day includes quiet alone time interspersed between play sessions, and for a little extra you can even include training, enrichment, a full groom/bath because they have an on-site professional groomer with a pet salon. They treated my little Squish like he was one of their own.
Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little man!

Literally the best experience my dog has had at a doggy daycare. Could not give Central Bark a high enough review. Their groomer, Ettie, is amazing. He comes home clean and happy. Monika and James are dog lovers through and through. I know he is in good hands and is always so excited to go see all of his friends at Central Bark. - Google Review
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 🙂

Without a doubt, definitely recommend! They really love dogs, and I would trust them with my own furry family! You can get a sense pretty quickly how passionate they are about what they do, and how much love they put into it!
