A Healthy Balanced Day

Our mission is to improve dogs’ physical, mental, and sensory well-being, ensuring that you have a companion at home who is content, joyful, serene, and well-rounded.

  • Play, Exercise, and Socialization: Physical activity aids in keeping your dog’s weight in check and muscles robust. It additionally elevates their spirits and offers an avenue for expending energy, leading to a calmer disposition at home. Our offerings encompass secure indoor and outdoor play areas, with both small and large playgroups tailored to your dog’s age, temperament, and comfort.
  • Rest: Rest is a vital component of your dog’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Following play and social interaction, they require moments of relaxation and rejuvenation. Our daily routine emphasizes a harmonious blend of rest, play, and learning, ensuring optimal well-being by averting overstimulation and fostering holistic health.
  • Learning: Dogs acquire skills from people and other canines; our knowledgeable staff helps them through constructive training methods. They instruct your dog in safe play and promote beneficial relationships. Dogs at our daycare facility in Sussex continuously learn new habits and social skills from their fellow dogs.
  • Love: As your dog joins our family, they receive abundant love and care during your absence. We forge a strong connection to instill comfort and confidence. Through consistent visits, we become well-acquainted with their traits, requirements, and likes. This enables us to discern even subtle shifts like mood, behavior, or potential health matters that might otherwise evade notice.

Commitment to Safety

Ensuring the safety and well-being of your dog is our priority. As fellow dog guardians, we deeply understand the importance of treating each and every dog as a beloved family member. Our dedication revolves around creating a secure and nurturing environment for all those who step into our facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Central Bark mentally stimulate a dog?

At Central Bark®, our goal is to provide a balanced day of play, learning, rest, and love. Learning and mental exercise can happen in various ways, including training activities, brain games, scent work, and more. Our playgroups offer several hours of active playtime paired with learning opportunities during Group Play Skills. This way, dogs have plenty of time to socialize and get their energy out, while also exercising their minds through learning.

During one of your dog’s rest periods throughout the day, they are offered a rest period enrichment activity to stimulate their mind while encouraging healthy rest. These licking and chewing activities involve food rewards, such as frozen peanut butter KONG®. These activities engage their minds while helping foster quality rest. 

Did you know? Scientific studies have shown that licking and chewing behaviors (especially those that involve food rewards!) are self-soothing, decrease heart and respiratory rates, and even release dopamine in a dog’s brain.

Training Tutor sessions stimulate the dog’s minds and bodies and help them learn important skills, behaviors, and tricks.

One-on-One Enrichment sessions give the extra attention dogs love and the freedom to use their senses and safely explore their instincts through interactive toys, puzzles, and games.

Did you know? 15 minutes of mental activity is equal to 30 minutes of physical exercise!

Why choose doggy day care for your dog?

There’s no bond like the one between our furry best friends and us. We love our dogs and want to give them the best life possible. But it can be challenging to fulfill all their needs to stay healthy and happy for a lifetime. Doggy day care gives pups a place to play and learn in a safe environment, with the socialization, mental stimulation, and physical exercise their minds and bodies need to stay healthy for a lifetime. 

  • Dogs get to socialize. Dogs are social creatures. Positive experiences with new humans, new dogs, and new environments are essential to a well-rounded pup.
  • Dogs learn social skills. Dogs learn from other dogs – they’re always teaching each other what is (and isn’t) appropriate social behavior. Doggy day care staff can also help support safe play and practice healthy social behaviors.
  • Dogs get more exercise. Exercise helps your dog maintain a healthy weight and muscle tone while improving their mood and providing a healthy outlet for their physical and mental energy, meaning they can be more relaxed at home.  
  • Dogs get human attention. Your dog will get the care and love they need while you’re at work or school.  
  • Parents get a break. Doggy day care can give you a day off from responsibilities, while your dog gets what they need to be a healthier, more well-adjusted pet.
