The New Berlin Central Bark has awesome staff that have a passion for their jobs. Our Bassett hound loves going and we enjoy seeing the fun she has from the pictures and videos their staff captures. From grooming, overnight stays and holiday parties-the New Berlin Central Bark offers more options than just the daycare 🙂

Jax loves visiting and playing with his puppy buddies at Central Bark Doggy Day Care New Berlin. Megan and all the staff are absolutely wonderful, drop off and pick up is quick and easy, and when Jax forgets to take a break & rest, they will remind him! We know he's being well taken care of while we're working!

Louie has been coming to Central Bark for almost two years, since he was 4-mos, and LOVES it! He enjoys the play and rest times, and the attention of the staff. We are happy to have the knowledge and experience of the caring staff. They seem to know each dog in their care personally and share daily updates on our fur-baby at pick-up. We appreciate that.

Meeko has been attending for 3 months now and absolutely loves it! The staff is top notch and truly care about your pet. The facilities are wonderful and this location has a great outdoor play space. Also each day they post photos to see what your dog is up to. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a doggy daycare.

I highly recommend Central Bark! My dog ADORES all of the staff; they are all so wonderful. Day care is her favorite place to go. There’s no other business I’d trust to care for my dog like I trust Central Bark! Thank you CB-NB!

I was very scared to bring my little boy to daycare because I didn't know how he would do in such a new and different environment. On a busy week when my boyfriend was out of town, I thought it was the right time to give Central Bark a try. I had gotten a recommendation to go there from a friend. Well, he absolutely loved it and we will be going more often!!! Everyone was so kind and welcoming. It made the experience a positive one for the both of us.

My dog has been going to Central Bark for 6 years since I adopted her at 5 months old. Not only does she have fun playing with the other dogs, I feel the socialization with different people has really helped make her the friendly, adaptable, well-behaved dog that she is. I've also relied on the groomers at Central Bark to keep Tula looking her best. The staff at the New Berlin location are incredibly kind, caring and friendly. And now, my husband's two dogs go each week as well! It makes me feel great knowing how well cared for our dogs are while they're there.

Even though I own a grooming shop traveling to downtown Milwaukee from Muskego was not a good option anymore for my senior dog. We started using CBNB this summer for Koby’s grooming and they are amazing! Erin is so sincerely caring and compassionate and does a fantastic job! Everyone at CBNB is always so friendly and upbeat it has been a great experience every time.
