About Bark Central 

Where it all started

Bark Central was created in 2004 by Jackie. It was her dream and passion to work with animals doing something she loved. After wanted to spend more time with her family Jackie decided to retire and  to sell her business. Amanda worked with Jackie for a year as a dog groomer where they build a strong relationship. Jackie decided to sell her business to Amanda in 2012. 

Amanda worked in the pet industry for more than 18 years and managed a large facility at 20
years of age. My first job was working at a dog grooming salon, where I bathed dogs, cleaned
kennels, and swept floors. In high school, I worked for a large facility where I worked my way up
to head groomer and kennel manager. After working there for ten years gaining experience, I
knew I wanted to open my own doggie daycare and grooming facility. While I still worked at the
facility, I also attended Pierce College and achieved my associates degree in small business
management along with achieving certificates in customer service, entrepreneurship, and
advertisement. After school, I worked at Petco for seven years to learn how corporations
operated. When I was ready to further my goal of owning my own business, I started working at
Bark Central. During the short time span of one year, I bonded with the owner who then sold
me the business. I have since made Bark Central grow from averaging ten dogs a day with one
employee to averaging forty dogs a day with more then ten employees.

Today Bark Central has two location one for boarding and another for Doggie Daycare. there is always improvements being made to better grow the business.
