Dog Training & Enrichment
Help your dog be the best they can be
A well-trained dog is a happy dog – and part of a happy family. At Central Bark® Sheboygan, our dog training professionals use fun and positive, reward-based techniques to help dogs of all ages develop important life skills and behaviors.
We offer both individual training and enrichment sessions as well as group classes to reinforce good habits and foster the loving bond you have with your dog. Training builds a foundation for good canine citizenship and helps develop happy, social, and well-rounded dogs.

Teddy loves this place so much. He hasn’t liked some of his groomers from the past, and Jennifer has made his visits so great that all I have to say is “let’s go get your hair cut” to Teddy and he’s at the door before me. He also knows when we’re a block away, and as soon as we enter the parking lot, he knows who he’s seeing. I only had to give her the specific detail at the first visit, and Teddy comes out PERFECT every time. The entire staff is just great!!! Teddy will be here for as long as he’s around.
Thanks Central Bark Groomers! Teddy and I are very happy!!❤️🐶🐾❤️🐶🐾
Janeen, Gina, and Chyann are friendly and knowledgeable. Professional. I enjoy their expertise and appreciate the experience they bring to Central Bark.
Saydee was way past her regular grooming session because of the Covid 19 stay at home situation. She has long, thick silky hair which is very difficult to groom because she tends to get a lot of snarls on her chest and legs, even though we brush her often. Central Bark was able to get her in very soon after their grooming salon reopened. She had to be sheared closer than usual because of the abundance of knots but her groomer, Gina Miller, did an excellent job and she looks as cute as ever. I highly recommend Central Bark for both their grooming and daycare.
Great service as always!!! In this day and time we're in, the staff was very safe with myself and my pup. I just love, love, love the staff and the business.
The staff who work the phones and groom the animals are so kind, patient and loving with the animals. They listen to the specific instructions you give them for grooming and take wonderful care of your pet while in their hands. I highly recommend them for your animal needs. Jennifer is awesome!
Very fast nail trim! Friendly staff
This was our first time there with our puppy Phoebe. We weren’t sure how she would do get her nails clipped, let alone a stranger taking her in without us. The girl that took her in was super friendly and kind, and that helped tremendously! We will definitely be back for our Feebs to get her pedicures, thank you!!
Charlie would rather be at Central Bark than at home. He loves it there!
Jennifer is the absolute best!, She always greets our canine kids, Wally and Midge with a warm, calm demeanor. She consistently does an outstanding job And we look forward to our regular grooming visits.
Central bark is a great facility! Immaculate and so well maintained. The staff is efficient and very friendly!
Jennifer took the time to listen to my suggestions and concerns about Frankie’s “ hot spots”. She followed through and did an excellent job responding to my needs for Frankie
