Maggie and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Central Bark.  Everyone is awesome! Maggie obviously has fun-filled days whenever she attends day care and absolutely loves it!

Great first experience, will definitely be back next week. All employees I interacted with were friendly, professional, and seemed to actually care. Thank you!

Tucker absolutely LOVES going to Central Bark in Sheboygan!   The staff is amazing and always incredibly welcoming to the pets (& humans too!)

Sharon T

Our pup got the royal treatment today. The staff was wonderfully kind and very efficient. In no time he was ready to come home and strut through the house like a million bucks. We will definitely be back to try other services that will be great for our growing energetic boy.

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!!❤️🐶🐾❤️🐶🐾

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.

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!

Tammy S.

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!!

Jeff and Cathy

Charlie would rather be at Central Bark than at home.  He loves it there!

Celeste and Ken

Jennifer is the best groomer we have ever had for our dogs; Midge, Wally and our new pup, Karl!

She is always accommodating, friendly, patient,  and does a great job! Moreover, she is kind. Always look forward to seeing her friendly face
