After treating your pup to a delicious treat or stocking up on some great food for them, maybe you want to take them to move around and get some exercise. The first park is located in Manheim Township though that does not mean you can just pull up with your favorite pup. Overlook Dog Park is located within the Manheim Township Recreation and Park at 1241 Lititz Pike within Lancaster County. You need to be a member to use this park with your dog and to do that you can register to receive access to the park. It is a great space for your dog to exercise, meeting other pets off the leash is allowed and a great way for you to meet some of your neighbors! The dog park started through a community effort to ensure safety and fun for our furry friends. The Manheim Township Dog Owners Group works with the park and recreation to manage the space help with registration and facility access. Being a member park this ensures that all the furry friends your pump meets are vaccinated and follow the policies. The park is also open in the winter so as the warm weather approaches and you are excited to get your pup out keep it in the back of your head that you can also enjoy this space bundled up too! 

The second dog park in Lancaster County that is a must go is Beau’s Dream Dog Park within Buchanan Park. And let me tell you the name is truly perfect, this park is a dream, it is incredible! The park has small and large spaces for your pups to play, they can swim around in some water wading pools, run through a tunnel or play with a tennis ball tree! It is free for all dog owners and lovers to use and maintained by the City of Lancaster it is kept clean and updated. While your four legged friend is enjoying the space you can enjoy some shade in the seating area or take a ball and throw it around the turf with your pup. Leave the toys at home and take a ride to Beau’s Dream Park. Your pup will love it, truly a dream vacation right in your backyard for your dog!  

Here at Wolf and Webb Realtors we not only help you sell or buy a home but work to bring you a personalized experience where you too can come to love our wonderful County! Check out our YouTube to see some of the luxury homes we have helped our neighbors find. 

Realize your pup was not on their best behavior at the park? Or maybe you saw a dog so well trained you are questioning if you should teach your furry love some new tactics? Look no further than The Zen Dog Den. The business is run by certified dog trainer Cherisse Feddock plus two other fabulous behavioral trainers Stacey Samii and Kelcy Waller. Everyone works as a team to help families achieve peace and happiness with their dogs inside and outside the home. The dog trainer Cherisse has been working with four legged friends as a foster pet parent, walker, educator, and trainer while also promoting pet adoption. The team has years of experience and expertise to help you and your pup be the best they can be! Cherisse has also worked with trainers across the world such as Cesar Millan.

The approach of the Zen Dog Den is to not only train but train by focusing on behavioral, instinctual and primal approaches which is truly remarkable and creates a different experience for the dog as well as the owner long after they have completed the program. Owners learn to truly understand their four legged family and build on methods that can be practiced in multiple settings. Through the work of the trainers, you and your family will be forever grateful as you learn and adapt to understand and connect with your pup. There are multiple types of services and training you can request from refreshers to a brand new owner. All of the training is done in-home so it is personal and convenient for clients, not to mention that most of the unwanted behavior occurs in the home in the first place.

Something that is a crowd favorite is the Zen Dog Pack Walks at the Overlook Park. This is an opportunity for clients to practice what they learned in the program and see what kind of pup they have within a pack of other dogs and humans. The best part is that the Pack Walks are free of charge and do not require RSVP! The trainers are available during the walks to answer questions. If you are interested in learning more, request a session or contact the Zen Dog Den today. The work that Cherisse, Stacey, and Kelcy does is remarkable and I am sure you will be talking about it for years to come! In fact, the Zen Dog Den offers clients a lifetime of support for their beloved dogs and families. Even after training is over, clients may reach out by text, phone call, or email for any reason with no cost. Having a pup of my own that has worked with the Zen Dog Den, I have nothing but great things to say. Cherisse has incredible talent and has helped us learn about our puppy while also helping her build up and learn great training techniques.
