The Central Bark dream came from a life time of owning and loving dogs. Doggy day care was the most amazing concept imaginable to me, and I truly embraced it from the start. When I dropped my dogs off, it made me so happy to see them excited about the day playing with their human and doggy friends, and come home exhausted after a wonderful day. I really wished I could be a part of this amazing positive environment, that helped so many dogs and their owners, and felt Parnell would be the perfect location for myself and others.
Our search for the perfect doggy day care building started in 2013, and took 4 years to become a reality. During our research it became clear that there was also a need for a high-end pet hotel for dogs and cattery that was close to the city. And we believed we could take pet care (dog boarding kennels, doggy day care, and cattery facilities) to the next level, and look after pets the way we would want our own precious four-legged family members to be looked after.
After visiting top pet care facilities in the USA, Australia, and New Zealand, we came up with an amazing design including every creature-comfort, safety, health and hygiene aspect, to build this world class facility.
This dream has come from a genuine passion and love for animals, and a desire to look after them to the absolute best of our ability. The animals and their welfare and happiness will always be our number one priority at Central Bark.
