About Central Bark Jacksonville

My name is Jessica Rowe and my husband Nick and I are so excited to announce that we are the proud new owners of Central Bark Jacksonville. Let me start by saying how thrilled we are to join the Central Bark family and reassure you that you will continue to receive nothing but the best care, service, and dedication you have come to expect from Central Bark.
For the past several years, I have worked for a local property management company while Nick has worked in sales. We both loved what we did, but the pull of Central Bark and the opportunity to become a small business owner was too much for us to ignore. We have both have permanently left our positions to focus solely on running your Central Bark and to ensure your dogs have the most enriching and inspiring days. I look forward to being inside Central Bark every day working with your dogs and our team, while Nick will help me behind the scenes.
When we decided to invest in Central Bark, it was because the business aligned so much with our values – a whole dog care approach that balances love, play, learning and rest in the warmest and most friendly environment. Both Nick and I are lifelong dog lovers, and we currently own three Chihuahua mixes, Ginger, Fiona, and Izzy, that were rescued from a local shelter. Rest assured, we will continue to offer the same exceptional service and care that you have grown to love, and we promise to treat each one of your dogs as if they were our own.
Compassion, respect, and integrity are Central Bark’s core values and we intend to uphold those every day. I look forward to personally meeting each one of you over the coming days and weeks. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are so excited!

“We welcome you to join our Central Bark family.”

Jessica, Central Bark Jacksonville Franchise Owner

What is dog training?

Dog training teaches a dog to perform certain behaviors, often in a variety of contexts. At Central Bark®, our training classes are based on the latest research and scientific understanding of dog behavior to enhance the bond between you and your dog.  

We use positive reward-based techniques to help puppies and dogs of all ages develop essential life skills and behaviors that will enrich their lives at home and day care. These methods set dogs up to succeed and reward them for performing desired behaviors. Rewards are tailored to the dog’s preferences and can include food treats, time to play with a favorite toy or verbal praise.
