Is boarding stressful for dogs?

Sleeping in a new or unfamiliar environment can be stressful for some dogs. That’s why we offer sleepovers to dogs already enrolled in our Enrichment Day Care. 

Sleepovers at Central Bark® offer your dog a calm, relaxing sleepover in a place they can feel comfortable and loved. Because they’re in a familiar place, they can feel less stressed about being away from home (and so will you). A full day of Doggy Day Care is complimentary with your sleepover, so your dog can play with their friends after a good night’s rest.

Learn more about Sleepovers at Central Bark.

Are there outdoor play areas?

Central Bark® has outdoor facilities complete with swimming pools and cooling systems for the summer.

What is the best dog shampoo?

Choosing the right dog shampoo can give your dog a shiny coat, less itching, and irritation, for a happy, clean-smelling dog. The best option for your dog will depend on its skin type and breed. 

Every item in our Central Bark® Market is specially selected to enhance your dog’s physical health for maximum happiness and comfort. We can help you choose from our selection of high-quality dog shampoo food to develop and maintain healthy skin and coat.
