Enrichment Doggy Day Care 

Doggy Day Care. Reimagined.

There’s no bond like the one you share with your furry best friend. But our human lifestyles can make it challenging to fulfill all of our dogs’ needs to stay healthy and happy. This can lead to issues at home, from loneliness and boredom to weight gain, anxiety, and undesirable behaviors.

Central Bark® Milwaukee Eastside Enrichment Doggy Day Care gives your dog a place to play and learn in a safe and loving environment. With socialization, mental stimulation, and physical exercise, their minds and bodies need to stay healthy and happy for a lifetime. 

Our focus on canine enrichment aims to enhance your dog’s overall quality of life. Through fun and rewarding activities that encourage them to use their senses to problem solve, learn new skills, and gain confidence. You can have peace of mind knowing that your dog is having a great day with all of their friends. Enrichment Doggy Day Care is our specialty, and nobody does it quite like us.

A Healthy Balanced Day

Enrichment Doggy Day Care provides a healthy balance of play, exercise, socialization, learning, rest, and TLC. We tailor each day to your dog’s individual needs and preferences. To nurture their bodies, minds, and senses so that you can enjoy a healthy, happy, calm, and well-rounded dog at home.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization – Exercise helps your dog maintain a healthy weight and muscle tone. It helps to improve their mood and provide a healthy outlet for their physical and mental energy. This means they can be more relaxed at home. Positive experiences with new humans, new dogs, and new environments help create happy dogs who are well-rounded and well-socialized. We offer both small and large playgroups in indoor and outdoor play areas where your dog can enjoy the social environment that’s right for their age, personality, and comfort level.
  • Rest – When dogs play and socialize, the opportunity to rest, relax, and recharge is vital for their physical, mental, and emotional health. Our daily schedule aims to help dogs avoid unhealthy overstimulation and achieve the right balance of rest, play, and learning. 
  • Learning – Dogs learn from humans and other dogs – along with our guidance, dogs are always teaching each other what is and isn’t appropriate social behavior. Our highly trained staff use positive training techniques to promote safe play and help your dog practice healthy social behaviors while at day care.
  • Love – Your dog will become part of our family and get all the love and attention they need while you’re away. We develop a bond with your dog to help them feel comfortable and confident. With regular attendance, we get to know your dog’s personality, needs, and preferences. We are better able to recognize things that might otherwise go unnoticed, like moods, behavioral changes, or even health issues.

Commitment to Safety

Our #1 priority is the safety and well-being of our guests. As dog parents ourselves, we take great pride in treating every dog as our own. And we are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for everyone that enters our facility.

Central Bark® Enrichment Day Care Features:

Flexible Group Play

Flexible playgroups allow us to match your dog with the social atmosphere and play schedule they can enjoy and benefit from most. This helps give them a healthy balance of play, rest, and learning and creates a safer social environment with a better quality of play. And our lower dog-to-staff ratios offer more individual attention, education, and love.

Group Play Skills

Interactive group activities and positive reinforcement help dogs practice important skills like name recall, and behaviors like group sit and calmly going in and out of doors and gates. These activities are fun and rewarding for your dog and help improve behavior and impulse control, prevent overstimulation, and create a safer social environment.

Rest Period Enrichment

Your dog gets to relax and recharge in their own private space with calming interactive toys and healthy food pairings tailored to their preferences and diet. It promotes physical and mental relaxation which can help them achieve a healthy balance of play, learning, and rest. It can also help them become more comfortable in crates by building positive associations.

One-on-One Enrichment

Personalized One-on-One Enrichment sessions give your dog the extra attention they love and the freedom to use their senses and safely explore their instincts through interactive toys, puzzles, and games. It’s fun and rewarding and exercise their bodies and minds and engage their senses. Add complexity with fitness and agility equipment. 

Canine Cab Shuttle Service

Our Canine Cab shuttle service offers safe and convenient pick-up and drop-off services to help you get your dog to and from their day at day care. Also, we can make deliveries for market purchases. This service can be scheduled as part of your package or arranged on an as-needed basis.

Please schedule in person or over the phone, at least 24 hours in advance.

Great staff, easy drop off and pick up, easy scheduling and most of all my dog loves it there!

Tracy M.

Great place with great people who really take good care of your dog! We've been using Central Bark for two years for once a week daycare and have had numerous overnight stays, anywhere from a couple nights to two weeks.
I have nothing but good things to say about them. My husband likes the convenience of texting for availability. I like hearing how my dog's day went, and I love the pictures posted on Facebook!

I've had my dog groomed here twice.  They are not an inexpensive option but they do a nice job.  The employees care about the animals and it shows.

Lindsey M.

I have been taking my 10 year old dog here for a couple years now and she loves it!!  The staff is great with her. Drop off and pick up is always efficient. Love having the option for her to sleep over or be dropped off in my home if needed. I have used both services and highly recommend them if you have a need. I love the pictures they put on social media and always make sure to check them out on the days she is there.

Shelley L.

We love Central Bark Eastside!!! My dog gets so excited when she knows we are going to daycare - she loves the staff and the other doggies. They take excellent care of her whether it be for daycare, boarding, or grooming. I also love that they post photos on social media so I can check on her during the day!

This location has *THE BEST* staff. Everyone is always happy and ready to help. Violet has been going here since she was a pup and now she is about to turn 4. I feel confidently comforted knowing she is being taken such good care of and having much fun. She has ample amounts of energy so when we both get home and I am ready to relax- so is she. 🙂

Heather has groomed my dogs for years! She is amazing. She is gentle and patient. My big dog has A LOT of issues including skin and behavioral issues after all of his hospital visits. I dont trust many people to help with him. She is an excellent groomer! I think my little dog might even have a crush on her. Bath time with Heather is great! Thankyou for being a rockstar!!! Your the best!!!

Sierra S.

My dog is a rescue and has an array of behavioral problems but Central Bark East Side has been nothing but helpful and kind to him! Thankful for a day care that doesn’t just dismiss a dog but will continuously work with him and make adjustments to make him feel more comfortable being away from home! Couldn’t ask for a better day care! Thank you.
