portia 017 (6)Portia, Owner

Portia left the hectic world of internet marketing to join the Central Bark™ pack in 2006. From her pre-school days helping her next door neighbor – a Siberian husky breeder – to training with an Olympic equestrian trainer in her teens, Portia has been involved with large and small animals for her entire life. In fact, she reports that she can’t remember a time in her life when she didn’t have at least one four-legged creature to feed before her dinner!

After surviving the internet bubble burst in 2001, it was only a matter of time before she realized that she needed more than a few pixels on a page to keep her motivated. When she began searching in earnest for a business to help her realize her dreams of working with animals – and dogs in particular – she quickly decided a doggy day care – and Central Bark™ – was the way to go..



“Saving one dog will not change the world, but
surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.
