At Central Bark® Madison we pride ourselves on our commitment to outstanding service. Our facility serves as the home away from home for your pooch. Try us today. Your dog will love you even more for it. The Bark™ in Madison is where dogs love to be! Unlike traditional dog kennels and other types of dog boarding facilities, we are all about giving your pup the absolute best experience possible!

We specialize in giving your dog all the care they need to keep them active, happy, and healthy, from interaction and play time, to nap time and good old TLC. Doggy Day Care is our specialty and we do it better than anyone! To ensure only the finest for our furry guests, everyone in our dog expert staff is put through our unique Central Bark® Doggy Day Care Certification Program, featuring: animal behavior, socialization, obedience training, canine first aid and CPR.

To ensure the well being of all of our guests, a comprehensive behavioral assessment is performed before any dog is placed with other dogs. This ensures that your dog is placed with a group that they are comfortable with and can play freely and safely.

Bottom line, we play dog, speak dog and be dog at The Bark!
