About Central Bark 
Central Bark Doggy Day Care is a company committed to the needs of dogs and their owners. Our team is dedicated to seeing that each dog has a safe and enjoyable day of supervised play. While at Central Bark, your dog can indulge in a spa day, play with his or her friends, interact with humans, and even have a little training. Structured yet flexible, each dog will enjoy times of play and times of rest, and if the owner prefers the dog can ride to or from our facility in our air-conditioned Canine Cab.
