THE REASON FOR OUR SUCCESS: OUR PEOPLE.

Karen C: General Manager (with her Westie, Wesley. Her lab, KC, not pictured).  Hired in June, 2007, Karen quickly became a manager at our Raleigh Hills location. Nearly seven years later, she has become the backbone of our company. With a little help from Ben (the owner), Karen oversees and controls all business operations at both Central Bark locations, and is a staff, customer, and dog favorite. Fun facts: Karen loves to play the piano, loves going to plays, has degrees in literature and science, has lived in Italy and Philadelphia, and all of her animals (2 dogs + 2 cats) are rescues. Last, but not least: she likes piña coladas (though getting caught in the rain not so much)... You can find Karen at both Central Bark locations throughout the week.

Deborah C: Manager, Burlingame Location (with her Great Dane, Athena): Deborah was hired in November, 2010. Because of her experience and success as a manager at the Raleigh Hills location, Deborah was brought over to help start the Burlingame location in August of 2012. She has been a great leader at our new store, and has played a huge role in its success since day one. Fun facts: Deborah spoke spanish before she spoke english, she enjoys reading Stephen King books, and on her weekends she enjoys taking hikes with her son Jaden and her giant puppy, Athena.

Laura H: Manager, Raleigh Hills location (with her Golden Retriever, Parker): Laura started with Central Bark in June, 2013. She made an immediate impact on the rest of the staff, and the four-leggers in her care, and was quickly promoted to weekend manager for our Raleigh Hills location (and has since taken on additional managerial responsibilities). She holds the distinction of being the first ever employee to be half Ben's age, making him feel very old. On her days away from work, she's busy working towards her business degree, somersaulting down snowy hills, or taking Parker on long walks.
