Our Whole Dog Care approach aims to nurture and enrich your dog’s whole health and well-being – throughout their entire life. The heart of this approach is our Enrichment Doggy Day Care program. We also offer dog boarding, baths, grooming, market, training, and more. All with the mission to help you and your dog share the best life.

We know that dogs aren’t just LIKE family – they ARE family. As dog parents ourselves, we take great pride in treating each and every dog like they’re our own.

Our dog Bertha loves going to day care at Central Bark. She plays and romps all day. I Love that they give reports on her days there. It’s nice that they have pick up and drop off services too.

My dog is obsessed with this place to the point where he begins to completely lose his mind when we turn onto their street. He loves playing with his friends all day. I love that he has a safe environment to go be the wild man that he is while I'm working from home.

The staff is very good about communicating with pet parents about any potential health concerns at the center and making sure that all pets are free from fleas/ticks upon arrival. Dogs are separated into appropriate social groups and redirected if they get out of control. Wish they were a bit cheaper (they're about $10/day more than the doggy daycares were when I lived in Chicagoland) but overall, highly recommend.

They are so absolutely kind, remember your dog by name, and make sure both you, and your dog are equally comfortable! Thankful for all they do for my Dunkin & I! 🥰
