Tom - Co Founder & Chief Enjoyment Officer (CEO)
Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services - Certified in Pet First Aid
Tom is our enthusiastic Founder and CEO (Chief Enjoyment Officer). Tom's passion for dogs started as a kid, when his parents surrounded him with Miniature Dachshunds and German Shepherds.
Tom continues his love of German dogs with his own family these days. Diesel and Elle are both regulars at CENTENNIAL BARK ready to meet everyone with happily wagging tails, and a few barks here and there!
Diesel - Chief Cheerleader
Diesel is our Chief Cheerleader. He knows he has the goods to lead the fun at CENTENNIAL BARK, in personality and ridiculously cute looks! You will find Diesel bouncing around on everyone and anything that will give him attention. If Diesel had two legs there is no doubt he would be right at home in the 2017 postcode.
