Unique to Central Bark Doggy Daycare are three fun play areas specific for your dogs personality.
Bark park - for social butterflies.
If you have a pooch that loves to run around and socialize, this is the spot for them. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your furbaby will have the time of their lives in the Bark Park. The Bark Park features a Dog Wheel, socialization with other dogs of the same energetic level, and elevated dog cots for them to relax on. You can be assured to know that they will be coming home exhausted from all the fun to be had in the Bark Park.
Zen den - for pups who want a little privacy with the perks of play time.
Do you have a furbaby that enjoys a more relaxing time alone but still craves a little adventure with like-minded pups? Let your mind be at ease when you leave them with us in the Zen Den. This one of a kind space allows your furbaby to relax in their own private kennel whilst having the option to go out and play in a more relaxing social setting. Each kennel has a place for your pooch to unwind and relax in their private oasis, but allows them to explore outside of the kennel into the social area. Social areas include lounge sofas and private kennels in a zen-like environment.
Dog lodge - for pups who want extra privacy.
Does your furbaby prefer a more private experience? You can give your dog the well-deserved retreat experience in the Dog Lodge. These individual styled lodges allows your pooch to have a calm and relaxing time while you're away. These lodges are perfect for furbabies that have high anxiety in social situations, or just require a little more privacy and space. Each separate kennel is styled like a real lodge with dog sized beds, music and a window view. There will also be a play area if clients want some one on one time.

Canine massage therapy
Leave your best friend in the best hands. Literally! We have on-site Certified Small Animal Massage Practitioner that will make sure your pup comes home feeling relaxed as ever. Massage therapy for canines is beneficial because it aids in the circulation of fluids throughout the body which assists the joints and muscles flush toxins from the tissues. The results include reduced pain and stiffness, more flexibility and greater range of motion. Massage also increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and improves cardiovascular health. Not only that, but your pup will more relaxed than ever.

animal Reiki therapy
Reiki is very beneficial for your pets as sometimes they need some inner healing in their life too. Reiki healing can be used for pain and mobility, anxiety, separation anxiety and some aggressive behavior. With adopted shelter pets it is especially calming as they need extra love and care to overcome their past experiences and to help them settle into their new environment.
