Central Bark: More than 20 years of puppy love.

Our journey started in the mid-1990s, as we sought to provide a healthy and happy life for our furbabies while balancing the demands of family and work. So we created Central Bark, where our dogs could get exercise, have fun and socialize in a safe environment. Our dogs were happier and healthier, our families felt more peaceful and loving, and our communities had a hub for like-minded dog lovers.

More than 20 years later, some things have evolved, but our mission remains the same: To nurture and enrich whole health, happiness and unconditional love for each dog, family, and community we serve.

“We believe every dog and every family deserve the Central Bark experience.”
