Pet Anxiety


[yikes-mailchimp form="4"]
What is ZenCrate?

ZenCrate is a homeopathic and pet-friendly solution for dogs with anxiety.

How can the ZenCrate help calm my dog?

Using a proprietary combination of sensors, the ZenCrate automatically detects when an animal goes inside the enclosure and immediately begins playing calming music selected based on research studies. The acoustics of the enclosure are designed to quiet sounds from outside noises, and also to keep the music inside. The reduced light exposure and confined geometry of the enclosure also help calm the animal once he enters the enclosure. Lastly, the design includes vibration damping technology to reduce the physical vibrations from outside thunder or fireworks.

How can I purchase a ZenCrate?

ZenCrate may be ordered through our Kickstarter campaign (launching in the Summer of 2016) or directly through our website thereafter.

Is the ZenCrate easy to assemble?

Absolutely! Not only does the ZenCrate required zero tools to assemble, it can be done by a single person in under 5 minutes!  Check out this quick video of the very first production ZenCrate being assembled – with NO tools!
