Dog Grooming and 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. That’s why we provide you with dog grooming in Oakdale. We offer everything you need to keep your dog clean, healthy, and comfortable at the Central Bark® Oakdale Dog Salon and 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 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.

For dogs, being comfortable in a crate is a life skill that is incredibly useful for them and their owners. If you have ever traveled with your dog or had the unfortunate experience of an overnight stay at the vet, knowing your dog is comfortable in a crate is immeasurably comforting.
Crate training can take just days or a few months, based on your dog’s age, temperament, and past experiences with crates. The two keys to successful crate training are to keep the experience positive and go slowly.
When your puppy is not in their crate, keep the door open and reward them every time they choose to enter, even if you didn’t ask them to enter it. When crating your puppy, give them a safe enrichment item (like a stuffed Kong) that will keep them busy and allow them to self-soothe while confined. Remember that crate training should take place in a series of small, slow steps that will help your puppy become more comfortable.
Central Bark® offers everything you need to help you care for your new puppy. Our Enrichment Day Care gives puppies all the socialization, exercise, mental stimulation, and rest they need for a lifetime of happiness with you and your family. We also offer expert training and classes so you and your puppy can learn and bond together.
Our staff is trained in dog body language and positive playgroup management techniques to respond proactively to help avoid issues between dogs. These tools include praise, treats, and work on important Group Play Skills daily like name recall, group sits, and going calmly in and out of doorways and gates. If a dog ever becomes overstimulated during play (like kids do on the playground sometimes), we use these practiced skills to help redirect dogs into more desired behaviors (like coming to us and offering a sit for a treat). This gives the dog a chance to reset and calm down. When needed, we also utilize play breaks (a short rest in an individual crate) or in-group leash walks if a dog needs a little more help to bring their energy levels back down.
