About Central Bark Doggy Day Care

Welcome to Central Bark Doggy Day Care, the Un-Kennel. Jackie Jordan and Chris Gaba, founders of Central Bark Doggy Day Care franchise system, would like to thank you for your interest in the Central Bark Doggy Day Care franchise system and taking the first step toward making your dream of being a business owner and operator a reality. As the corner stone of our operations and business model, our simple day per week client commitment is the result of our unparalleled experience managing dogs in a social setting. We were founded in1997 and began franchising in 2004. Today we have over 2 dozen franchised location and have had over a million total dog visits to our system. We have learned more about dogs, dog socialization and dog behavior than any other company in the industry. It is that experience and expertise that sets us apart as the leader of the pack and the first and largest Un-Kennel franchise concept. We know that maintaining consistency and continuity of care creates not only a home away from home for the dogs in our care, but the safest possible social environment. To us any other way is a risk that we are not willing to take with a dog. For us the “dog” is really the bottom-line and not just a tag line. From the business side, it is about consistent and predictable cash flow and revenue, rather than the spikes and valleys of a traditional kennel operation. And, as a smart business person, who wouldn’t want that! Central Bark Doggy Day Care maintains multiple streams of revenue. From grooming to training and retail, business is not limited to only day care and sleepovers. As a one-stop-shop, we are a destination location for anything that a dog owner desires, all under one roof. We invite you to continue your investigation and due diligence into Central Bark and to see what makes us the leader of the pack in the Doggy Day Care Industry and a franchise that you can be proud to join and be a part of.
