About Central Bark Wauwatosa

Growing up loving and caring for animals of all shapes and sizes, working with dogs quickly became a passion of mine. Throughout high school and college, volunteering with rescues and local humane societies was the outlet for the desire I always had to work with dogs. I got my first dog after college and while working in the corporate world, I found a local Central Bark to take her to while I was at work.

I quickly became captivated by the Central Bark brand and model and left the corporate world behind to purchase my own Central Bark in the heart of the Village of Wauwatosa where I live with my husband and our dogs. When you and your pup join Central Bark Wauwatosa, you become a part of our family. I consider myself incredibly lucky to be able to meet and work with so many dogs and genuinely love getting to know each one.

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing the smiling faces of each and every dog that comes through my door.”

My name is Gina and I’ve been working at Central Bark for 5 years now. My Siberian husky, Dahlia’s love for doggy daycare is what inspired me to ditch my retail management life and dive into the doggy daycare industry. I am a dog mom of 3 and I foster for Off the Chain MKE. Dogs are my whole world from sun up to sun down. Ensuring a safe and clean environment for your dogs to play is my passion. Nothing makes me happier than seeing your dog’s smiley face walk through our doors! I am blessed to have a career with the thing I love most in life, dogs!
