It's no surprise that dogs need a ton of exercise.
What is surprising is how difficult it can be to drain the energy from a young, rambunctious pup.
Mud wrestling, chase, and tug of war are just a few of the exhausting daily activities designed to leave your pooch tuckered out.
Adolescent dogs need to experience as many interactions with other dogs and humans as is humanly possible!
There is no better place than the dog park for daily encounters with unfamiliar, albeit friendly faces.
Even shy or nervous dogs warm up quickly when introduced to the park properly.
Off-leash environments can be intimidating to many dog owners.
Our dog park supervisors are trained to notice the signs of dangerous behavior, anticipate aggression, and quickly deescalate the situation.
We only visit official dog parks with secure fencing and safety regulations in place.
Our pack leaders are our most senior associates.
They are highly trained and equipped with the skills necessary to handle a pack of dogs in an off-leash setting and navigate Westchester's nature trails.
We take dog care seriously because we know you rely on us.
We continue to provide services in any weather as long as driving conditions are safe.
Zen Dog guarantees emergency coverage even in the worst conditions.
Our vehicles are equipped with remote control technology.
This enables us to constantly monitor the driver's performance, control the cabin's temperature, and safely secure the cabin during pick-up and drop-off.
Exclusive Member Benefit
Most behavioral issues stem from a breakdown in communication between human and canine.
This is why we stress the importance of owner involvement in the training process.
As a student of the Zen Dog philosophy, you will gain the discipline to maintain a calm and assertive energy while commanding respect and obedience from your dog.
While we do our best, us humans are not naturally great at providing the consistency necessary to produce the behavioral changes we'd like to see in our dogs.
We will develop a unique training regimen based on your individual goals, boundaries, and limitations.
We recommend a variety of training tools designed to enhance the effectiveness of the techniques you will learn
Dog owners can address many issues at home with a little direction from an experienced behaviorist.
Zen Dog members enjoy access to unlimited phone support with our team of professional trainers.

After years of working in kennel environments, experiencing first-hand the high levels of stress and anxiety that boarding facilities create, we decided to do things differently.
Our approach to pet sitting is uniquely tailored to provide dogs with the best possible quality of life.
Watching you leave is already stressful enough. Why cause more anxiety by uprooting your pets?
In-home pet sitting minimizes stress for dogs and owners alike.
Dogs find comfort in the familiar. Leave your dog in the luxurious routine of your home environment.
PEACE OF MIND
Keep your pets, home, and belongings, secure and insured under Zen Dog's care.
Though we specialize in dogs, we don't discriminate against other house pets or plants.
We can take care of the entire estate while you are away.
