Our Pack Leaders: Allen & Christy (with Miles & Kona)


Allen and Christy are the owners of the New Berlin and Madison Central Bark stores. They both have such a passion for animals and especially dogs. They have three mutts together, Miles, Kona and Kanani, along with two cats, Fergie and Binx. They have taken their passion and turned it into a career by owning their own Central Bark Doggy Day Care. Christy has previously worked in retail loan maintenance and Allen is currently a police fleet supervisor, with their expertise in these areas of finance and management they will help make Central Bark New Berlin and Central Bark Madison all it can be! They both strive to make Central Bark a place to talk about and have the parents and their pets leave with a smile on their faces each and every day! 🙂

We are thrilled to officially introduce you to our new Store Manager, Jaclyn Fennel.

Jaclyn brings a wealth of knowledge in dog training, behavior, communication, cognition, nutrition and first aid.

In 2014, after adopting two orphaned puppies, Jaclyn started studying and taking courses in everything dog-related. In 2018, she left her corporate writing career to focus more on dog parent and rescue volunteer education.

Jaclyn is the founder of a dog parent training and socialization group on Facebook – followed by over a thousand Southern Wisconsin dog parents and rescue advocates.

She is currently in the process of writing her first dog parent rescue manual and plans to have it published by the end of 2020.

In her free time, Jaclyn enjoys relaxing at home with her husband, Matt, and their three rescue pibbles – Pappy, Wally and Charlotte.
