Thank you for your interest in boarding with Central Bark! We offer boutique hotel stays exclusively for our doggy daycare clients. Our hotel and daycare are combined, which means during the hotel stay your dog will spend their days in one of our social and active indoor dog parks with all their new doggy friends! If you are a new client wanting to board with us, you will first need to enrol in our doggy daycare.
All new clients (or clients who have not attended in more than 6 months) must enroll by booking a first-day assessment with our Animal Care Manager. During the assessment, we will take the time to evaluate your pup's behaviour in this new environment, determine which play park your dog will be best suited to and introduce them to the hotel suites to check they feel comfortable and relaxed.Hotel bookings are subject to passing the assessment. We often require a minimum of 3 daycare visits before considering a boarding request.

What should I bring?
Please ensure your dog arrives on leash and bring along their breakfast and / or their absolute favourite treats!
We will also require proof of up-to-date vaccinations, which must include:
- Canine Cough
During the hotel stay, we provide Adult Royal Canin Biscuits which is complimentary.
Please bring your own food if your dog requires wet or raw food, or if they are on a prescription/special diet. There is a daily charge of $5.00 for administering your own food.
We also have beds, bowls, toys, and blankets so no need to bring anything extra with you, although their favourite blanket can often help them to settle in ❤
