ATTENTION: Regarding our merge with the PLAY location, we understand the community's concerns with the current illnesses seen around our community. Still, Central Pet is not housing any sick dogs and is fully operational. We thank you again for your continued support!

At Central Pet, we treat your pets like family! Our passion for animals, combined with our extensive training and certifications, have helped us to create a home away from home for pets throughout southern Arizona. We opened our doors in 2007 with the goal of creating a safe and trustworthy haven for pets. (And the peace of mind for pet parents.) Nearly ten years later, we've not only succeeded but excelled! Come in and take a tour of our facility to see why Central Pet in Tucson is #1 in pet boarding, dog training, doggy daycare, pet grooming, and more!



Julie Grounds started Central Pet with the dream of providing a safe haven for pets of all types. She has worked in the pet care industry since 2000, and her years of experience and determination have made Central Pet what it is today. She has built Central Pet from the ground up, ensuring that every aspect of operations was based on providing the very best care available. Her strong work ethic and leadership skills have shaped her hand-selected team into the finest, most knowledgeable group of pet care professionals who constantly strive to provide consistent and quality care that always puts the pets first.




Our boarding services are offered 365 days a year while canine training, doggy daycare, retail stores, and pet salon & spas are open Monday through Friday. We board all household pets from cats and dogs to birds, fish, and other small animals. Our staff is thoroughly trained to care for their individual needs. Our dog training services include group classes, one-on-one lessons, and our famous Board and Train program. Doggy Daycare boasts cameras that can be accessed online so you can watch your pet romp and play while you're away. Our Salon & Spa is for both cats and dogs and offers breed-specific grooming, luxurious add-ons, and a-la-carte services. You can always check out our retail store for a wide selection of pet food and supplies that are all-natural and made in the USA.
