Welcome to the Zen Zone
The Zen Zone is a safe place for you and your dog to explore away from shared public spaces. It has been developed specifically to foster calming emotion and behaviour by encouraging your dog to use their incredible sense of smell.
Dogs learn largely about the world through their nose, sniffing everything they possibly can which sometimes can be frustrating when you are in a rush. But imagine not being able to use your eyes? The Zen Zone provides precious time for you and your dog to slow down, chill out and enjoy sensory enrichment.
The area provides enrichment and mental stimulation as well as encourages problem solving skills, which helps keep the brain active. It builds confidence in a safe environment and inspires your dog to explore to a level they feel comfortable, there is no pressure to behave in a particular way other than what feels natural or safe to them.
The Zen Zone has different sections which you will be guided through by one of our qualified members of staff, they include:
Sensory garden – A self-selecting area containing plants and herbs for your dog to sniff or if they fancy they can even have a nibble! The plants are safe and are known to have calming or healing properties.
Maze – a course set out to encourage your dog to walk, turn, sniff and explore physically, ensuring they get a body workout as well. We also get an opportunity to observe their movement and pace.
Sniffari – this area is changed every week to include new objects and scents for your dog to investigate. Your dog’s sniffing nerves are connected to the part of their brain responsible to processing emotions. By enabling positive experiences through sniffing your dog can feel good, happy and content.
Adventure – an area for your dog to explore different play equipment, heights and ways to use their body.
Sensory – different textures, materials and scents for your dog to investigate which includes puzzles for brain work.
