CentreBarks Educational Daycare

Dogs Playing Together In Pop Up Tent CentreBarks is an educational daycare centre for all dogs that will care for, train, exercise, and mentally stimulate your dog whilst you are at work, out for the day, on holiday or shopping etc.

Training

Our emphasis is on training, and with two Qualified Karen Pryor Academy Trainers at CentreBarks, your pets will benefit greatly.  The exercises we work on include:

  • getting through doorways under control
  • hand targeting for moving around
  • recall from another dog
  • settle on a mat
  • group stay

Other daily activities include scent & search games indoors and in the garden; games with many balls; Boomer ball; Kong time; cardboard origami, and much more.  Puppies have a separate area to play together and once fed, get their nap time, just as they would at home.

CentreBarks has something to offer dogs of all ages and we're open from 0800 to 1800 Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day.

Assessments

Every dog needs to attend a 2-hour assessment prior to their first full visit to CentreBarks and this is to ensure they will be happy and relaxed in a large group of dogs.  It's rare for dogs not to pass their assessment, but it is a necessary part of the process to help them acclimatise.  During the assessment, your pet will meet one dog at a time until all the dogs are back together in one group, and they are monitored for any signs of stress or anxiety.

Bark 'n' Ride

Our Bark 'n' Ride dog bus provides a collection and delivery service for when your hours don't match ours.
