Dog Walking and Playtime
In a dog's world, one size does not fit all. Based on your dog's personality, we will create a unique one on one, dog-walking, and playtime experience that can evolve over time.
We at Zen Dog have found that our pooches get the best result (happy and tired) from a variety of fun and stimulating activities. Our core practice is centered around the walk, but our curriculum may also include things like:
CHOOSING YOUR WALK DURATION
A quick jaunt around the neighborhood, including potty breaks and a full water bowl. We can also feed dogs after their walk if desired. 15 minutes is best for older or more relaxed dogs or as a break in a dog's day while you're at work.
In a half hour, we walk roughly two miles. We may choose a shorter walk combined with games or other activities. This is best for dogs with low to medium energy levels.
An hour-long excursion might include a 30 minute walk plus 30 minutes of mentally stimulating exercises. High energy dogs need high energy play, so we customize activities for your pooch!
SCHEDULING AND CANCELLATION
We ask for 24 hours notice for scheduling walks.

Going out of Town?
We provide care for your companion while you're away.
It can be stressful for pets to be apart from their owners. With our house-sitting service, one of our sitters will spend the night, allowing your pet the familiarity of their own home and the maintenance of their usual routines. With each overnight, we provide three daily walks, along with any meals or medication, all included within the nightly rate.
Overnight Rate is $65/Night
For more independent or low-maintenance pets that only require regular walks throughout the day, we are happy to provide frequent walks and playtime for your furry friend at our usual rates.
We stay with your pet(s) overnight from around 7pm-7am,
during the day we provide three short walks.
We provide basic care such as feeding, giving medication, cleaning small animal cages and emptying litter boxes.
We cycle lights, water plants, bring in mail and take out garbage and recycling.
We stay in touch and give you regular updates.
YOUR PLACE OR OURS?
Most of our overnight stays are done in the client's home.
Boarding your pet at a sitter's home is possible, but availability is limited and suitability is determined on a case by case basis.
SCHEDULING AND CANCELLATION
For all of our overnight services, arrival and departure times are flexible, especially when pets require special feeding or medications.
Scheduling is available online.
Advance notice is required, particularly on and around holidays.
Up to two months in some cases.
You can cancel or change overnight reservations without penalty.
During overnights, longer walks can be added at a discounted rate.
Any of our Pet Hygiene services can be provided upon request.
We don't charge additional time beyond the 24 hour overnight,
but we may add extra walks beyond those included, to ensure your pet isn't alone for more than 6 hours.
$5 per night for each additional pet
Overnights over holidays incur a single flat $20 charge.
