About Central Bark Tampa

Amy’s love of dogs began as a kid when her dad raised & showed German Shepherds, living with 14 of them at one point. During her career as a real estate broker, Amy opened her doggy day care in 2001 designed as a home away from home for black lab pup Abby. An amazing staff helped Amy grow the business which she continues to oversee after 19 years in business with dedicated & long-term leadership at the helm of daily operations. Her focus continues to be on providing a fun, safe & clean environment where our client’s dogs are treated with love, kindness & respect. For Amy, nothing is more rewarding than the wag of a dog’s tail when they arrive for day care & the smiles on her client’s faces when they see their dog happy, content & well taken care of at the end of the day.

“We welcome you to join our Central Bark family.”

Amy, Central Bark Tampa Franchise Owner
