Our Pack Leader: Adrianne


Adrianne has spent the first 11 years of her career working in the fast-paced long-houred nuclear power world. Routinely spending 72 hours away from her 4-legged kids made her realize that there was a need for a doggy day care facility in the Lakeshore Area. So she traded her lead shielding and bubble suit for a poop scoop and broke out on her own. She is now the proud President of Central Bark™ Manitowoc. She has an Associates Degree in Communications from UW Manitowoc and is well on her way to finishing her double-major bachelor’s of Business Administration/Marketing from Lakeland College. She has also been trained in Small Animal Masseuse and Canine First Aid/CPR. Easily identified within the Lakeshore Community from her role as editor of the newsletter for the the Lakeshore Humane Society and a former obedience instructor at a local Kennel Club, she and the staff are excited to work with the furry pals of the community.


Our Manager: Jason

BoDSC01730a (1)rn in Michigan, raised in New York and transplanted to Wisconsin, Jason has had his fair share of occupations. From delivering newspapers on Long Island, selling Beer and Brats for Walt Disney World Resorts to manufacturing electromechanical controls he somehow ended up in the nirvana of occupations … dog handling. It all actually started out when he needed (like many others) daycare and boarding for his Golden Retriever, Indiana. After a few years of watching his dog come home wet and tired, Jason decided he wanted the same. Years later, a few bumps and bruises, and several pair of worn out boots, he now sits in the Manager’s chair (though he still doesn’t get to sit much).


Our Groomer: Annie

Annie hails from the DePere area and we are so lucky to have her.  At least once a week she drives all the way here to Manitowoc so our clients can look fabulous.  With over 15 years of grooming experience and a skill set learned from a Master, no dog, big or small shall leave our salon without looking like anniea million bucks.

Every groom from Annie includes a luxurious bath and conditioning, pampering brushing, and a peticure nail trim.  From the simple Bath and Brush to grooms ready for the show circle, Annie will make your dog look like the leader of the pack.  Confident in all grooms, she especially enjoys the results of her golden-doodle cuts.

Anyone can bathe a dog but no one makes them shine like Annie.
