The mission of Doggie Zen Den is to provide a harmonious and safe environment that stimulates the mind, body and spirit of each dog through a balance of engaging activities and pampering services.

Under the same ownership since the beginning, Doggie Zen Den was founded after Ellyn and Cathy were searching for a place to kennel their dogs for a weekend. They soon realized that Plano needed another alternative for their beloved canine children. Cages and little attention during the day just would not suffice. There needed to be a place where dogs were stimulated, pampered and able to play and run freely. Thus, in 2001, the idea of Doggie Zen Den was born.

Quickly, the plan was set in motion. Ellyn and Cathy joined the American Boarding Kennel Association in 2002, and began taking seminars on how to build and operate a doggie daycare and kennel operation. Ellyn and Cathy also enrolled in the Animal Behavior College to learn all about training and handling dogs. In July 2005, we proudly opened our doors to Doggie Zen Den, a unique and refreshing experience for our canine members and their families.

Professionally managed by dedicated, experienced staff who love dogs, our facility has three large indoor play areas, 24 private boarding suites, 1/3-acre outdoor play area, a doggie pool yard, and a full-service grooming salon.
