Your Pet's Home-Away-From-Home
We are striving to be your dog's home-away-from-home.
Our boarding facility where the dogs sleep at Zen Doggy Den is designed like little bedrooms. With bamboo wood floors and a similar design as a house, the dogs feel more at home than the standard industrial buildings most boarding places for dogs have. We do practice crate training during their stays, until we can one day get our fancy suites. We do feel crate training is beneficial either way, as having a crate-trained dog offers many conveniences. Many dogs also tend to do better in a smaller, cozy space. We have a couple open-top, tall-styled pens that we use for large dogs as well as dogs that need to house together. Impact-type crates are often used for escape artist dogs. Our certified dog trainers are experts on dog behavior, so we monitor and assess where dogs should sleep based on their behavior while here. This helps to minimize stress as much as possible.
If they're a "people dog" or a "dog's dog," we will accommodate.
Boarding dogs participate in small group daycare or alone for “people only time” if they don’t do well with other dogs. Just let us know all about your dog and we will work hard to accommodate! If your dog has never been to our boarding facility or daycare, then we often recommend a day of daycare to get them used to the environment, and then they know what to expect the next time. Dogs like to know what to expect, such as eventually going home.
All you need to bring is food — everything else is optional. There’s no extra charge for administering medication, playtime, or extra cuddles!
