About Central Bark Grayslake

Chicagoland natives Laura and Kevin have always dreamed of leaving corporate America and opening up a dog day care business. Central Bark®  helped make that dream come true. Laura is a Columbia College graduate and has been fine-tuning her creative abilities with Crate & Barrel for the last seven years. Kevin, a UW-Madison graduate, has been crunching numbers in the financial industry, most recently with LaSalle. Laura’s and Kevin’s love for dogs, along with their “ani-pals”, make Central Bark® in Grayslake a wonderful place to bring your dogs to play.

“We are blessed to be able to spend our days taking care of your four-legged children. All of our employees are trained to love, care, and respect each furry client as if they were their own.”

Laura & Kevin, Central Bark Grayslake Franchise Owners
