Great place for doggy day care and boarding!! My pup loves coming to this Central Bark. He always has a smile on his face when he is dropped off for boarding and sleeps well after each sleepover experience 🙂

We just moved to Madison from Rochester where our dog Chester went to a Central Bark. The Madison Central Bark is just as awesome! Welcoming staff, super friendly, and Chester comes home exhausted! So thankful we decided to go back to a Central Bark again.

Very happy we found this place for our German Shepherd, Maddux. They are so good to him and he’s so excited when he gets there. You can totally tell they love what they do. Highly recommend!!

We've been taking our dog Crouton to Central Bark for several months and she loves it there! She seems to have lots of fun and get plenty of exercise. The staff is super helpful and genuinely seem to love dogs. It's not cheap, but it's worth it!

We just adopted our dog Hero a few months ago and we've taken him here a few times for the stay and plays and for the grooming services. So far we absolutely love it. The staff are great and really take the time to get to know the dogs and listen to the owner's requests. Being a rescue, Hero has a lot of anxiety and the first couple of times we came here he was afraid of even walking into the building. The third time he remembered where we were and almost ran in, which we take as a great sign! Definitely will continue coming back for their dog day care services

My dog Cooper loves going to ‘school’ at Central Bark!! We got him very young (6wks) and my boyfriend & I both work full time. We felt horrible leaving him home alone! Even though we would come home on our lunch break, it just still made us feel like bad parents.Cooper has been going to Central Bark for approximately 4 months now & he loves it, & they love him too! When it’s time to go home, he never wants to leave!I love that they offer grooming services, & overnights! (Both of which we use) ! Each day they post pictures on Facebook and a few days a week you get a report card which is so cute! Everyone is very nice & knowledgeable! Having a puppy (first time dog owner, & to a puppy!!) they answer all my questions and offer suggestions, which I appreciate.Cooper especially loves Ms. Jay & Ms. Mikayla! Even the crew that allow him to get dropped off early in the morning, for a very small charge. Well worth it!! If you are looking for a daycare, grooming services, overnights, I would HIGHLY recommend Central Bark! Be assured your ‘baby’ will be given high class treatment!!

My dog Millie and I love Central Bark. It’s her favorite place to go besides the dog park. The staff is always so pleasant, and always remember Millie even if we haven’t been there for awhile. It’s affordable and after a long shift at work, it’s nice to pick up a high energy puppy that’s played with her friends all day. I couldn’t recommend Central Bark enough!

Central Bark is without a doubt the single best Doggie DayCamp in Wisconsin.We’ve been to other places and no one has cared and loved our BellaLuna like they have. She has become more trusting, more social, and has learned so much from her time here. 10/10 for sure!
