The Zen Dog DEN

The Zen Dog Den, LLC is a group of Certified Dog Trainers determined to help you and your dog live a calm and happy life together through a relationship-based approach to training. 

Whether you have a brand new puppy, a goofy adult dog, or a dog struggling with anxiety or reactivity, The Zen Dog Den is here for you. Because our approach involves speaking your dog’s language and understanding their needs, we are able to help dogs at all life stages become the calm companion dog you hoped for.

The Zen Dog Den serves clients in Lancaster County, PA and surrounding areas. 


Everyone wants a dog that can go with them to the coffee shop, tag along to the hardware store, or relax peacefully with them at the park. While some dogs can do this naturally, most dogs need help to reach this level of calm. 

In our program we cultivate calm by communicating with your dog in a way they will understand and giving you simple techniques to minimize bad behavior and maximize the time spent enjoying your dog. 

Our programs are designed to make training easier for you and fit your lifestyle, rather than the other way around. We offer a variety of programs to help you meet your training goals, all of which take place in the comfort of your home. Not only is that more convenient for you, but it is where your dog acts the most themself. We want to meet them where they are.

What our clients say

“We were running out of options before we found Zen Den for our two anxious dogs. We are so glad we were able to go through the program and have noticed a huge change in our dogs behavior as well as how our relationship with them as improved. In just a few short weeks we have happier and more well behaved pups and we are so grateful for Zen Dog Den!”
~ Christina (with Cooper & Bean)

“Kelcy Waller provided us with excellent training and education on how to create an optimal life for our two dogs in our home. Following the Zen Dog Den program quickly helped our 19 month old goldendoodle go from super excited to well behaved. Our 4 1/2 year old schnauzer is “excited barking” much less. All because we now understand how to create expectations. All that was training. Kelcy, with her deep knowledge of dogs, was also able to explain our dogs behaviors and how we can best help them. Those educational pieces really gave us total confidence in the balance of the program.”

~Karen (with Enzo & Lupo)

“Kelcy was amazing. She understood our situation, our dog, our intentions, and our goals. She helped us with steps and tips to achieve them all. I am confident that if we stay diligent with the training program we will see continued growth and success. And Kye loves her :)”
~Matt & Megan (with Kye)
