Who We Are
The Zen Doggy Den has smaller play groups than most facilities. While we are sure plenty of dogs do just fine in groups of 40-60 dogs. We feel it benefits them more mentally to be in smaller groups of 7 or less (often only 2 or 3 at a time) grouped by size and temperament. Not every dog plays well with every dog they meet and we understand that. Humans don’t like everyone we meet! While aggression will not be tolerated in daycare, groups of similar play style will have a much more enjoyable time. Some dogs just need time to warm up and not be overwhelmed. We have a rotation protocol, so when a dog seems like they need a nap, or a break – we take them to do that. Most aggression stems from a form of fear, so by creating a more relaxing environment we can help dogs that potentially didn’t do so well in larger groups.
