Dog walking

As of January 2018, Zen Zoomies will be accepting dog walking clients!

We know that with life in the way, sometimes it's hard to have time to work with your dog. That's why we are now offering a service to help with all of your dog walking needs.

We can either take your dog out for a much needed break during the day (a private walk) or give a little extra help with any of your training needs (an educational walk). Educational walks can help with puppy socializations, leash manners, reactivity, or to help your over energetic dog use a little extra brain power.

We are now part of and bonded by Pet Sitters International!

What do our walks include? What is the difference?

Private walks

Includes:

  • 30-60 minute walk
  • Walk report by end of day
  • Enrichments such as "Choose their own Adventure" and "Sniffaris"
  • Indoor games, play, and cuddles when the weather is not permitting
  • Reactive dogs are managed to avoid triggers

  • Parkour
  • Treat-based enrichments (such as "Cookie Scatters") on walks
  • Indoor training (such as obedience, agility, or free shaping, etc.) when the weather is not permitting

    Private walks are $25 for 30 minutes and $35 for an hour
