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.
We're happy to accept walks on short notice, but availability can be limited.
You can cancel any walk without penalty up to the day of the service.

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 routine. We have a variety of pet-sitting options, so you can customize services based on your budget and your pet's individual needs.
Walks while you're away:
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.
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.
