Milwaukee Downtown
Dog Grooming & Spa

Help your dog look and feel their best

There’s nothing like snuggling with your dog when they’re soft and clean and smell nice. We offer everything you need to keep your dog clean, healthy, and comfortable at the Central Bark® Milwaukee Downtown Dog Salon & Spa. From a simple bath to an elaborate grooming treatment, our expert groomers focus on creating a calm and relaxing experience your dog can enjoy. Enrichment activities can be added to help your dog relax even more and during their spa day.

All dogs are unique. Just like humans, your dog deserves personalized grooming for their size, breed, coat type, and condition. For this reason, prices, products, and services vary. Please ask an associate for details.

Our Groomer


Always having a great love and compassion for animals, it’s no wonder Lorann ended up being hired as a Central Bark Doggy Day Care employee-and their very first one to boot!  In 1999, she was offered an apprenticeship at a grooming salon in Waukesha. When word came that the shop was for sale, it was a natural fit.  Running a successful grooming shop until 2004, Lorann realized that she just couldn’t stay away, so she sold the shop and came back to the Milwaukee area to pamper the hard playing pooches of Central Bark.  Lorann works at Central Bark North and Downtown and has apprenticed several other groomers for other Central Bark locations.  Lorann is often accompanied by Stella, a Lab/Newfoundland mix she adopted from a rescue in 2010.  You would think being a groomer’s dog; she would be perfectly manicured at all times.  But Stella is a day care junkie and loves the pool as much as any other pup.  She often leaves with her owner in tow, not so perfectly manicured, but very happy and tired. 

Pampered Pups

So fresh. So clean.

Enjoy cuddling with your soft, clean, healthy, and happy pup.

We have been sending our goldendoodle Lio to Central Bark Downtown for about a year now, and he always enjoys his time there. The staff is very friendly and communicate well with the pets’ owners. We highly recommend this place for your fur-babies!
