Guided Dog Meditations

Guided Dog Meditations

There are many different ways to meditate, but the goal is typically the same–to relax, refocus, and rejuvenate our minds. Meditation has been shown to improve sleep, lower stress levels, and heal both body and mind. It’s a great habit to incorporate into your life, and doing it with your dog has the added benefits of helping them and also connecting you with your canine companion.  


Guided meditations are lead by people who are well-versed in meditation who talk listeners through meditative experiences. Some people use guided meditations to learn how to meditate, but it also provides another way for seasoned practitioners to experience meditation. Guided meditation can help you to focus your breathing and empty your mind so you can truly relax.


In collaboration with professional meditation and spiritual practitioners, WooFDriver has assembled these guided meditations for you and your dog. Though your dog may not be able to fully understand the language, the vocal tones of the guides and the tranquil sounds of nature and/or music that accompany them help create a soothing and relaxing experience that can promote healing, rest, and security.

Walking your Dog:
Written By: Kayla Wright
You are about to go on relaxing and much needed walk with your owner. As your owner puts your leash on, calmly breathe in and feel the anticipation for the adventure fill your body. You and your owner step out into the world, and your senses peak. Remember to be calm though. Focus on the air that surrounds you, and sit until your owner is ready to walk. Breathe in the moisture in the air, allow it to land on your wet tongue, and fill your belly. Pay attention to how your paws feel against the earth, and how your tail feels as it wags in the wind.
Your owner is now ready. Stand up, breathe in through your mouth and nose once more, than begin to slowly stretch your paws and move. Be mindful of every step you take. Feel the gravel, the grass and the dirt beneath your paws. With every front paw step, take a breath in and admire the world around you.
Feel the connection of energy between your owner and yourself. As you walk and breathe, lift your head. What do you see? Allow the yellows, blues and violets of the atmosphere to stand out. Feel your body become lighter and lighter with every step you take, as you allow a sense of peace and appreciation fill your limbs.
Walk with poise and control. Breathe in the oxygen that mother earth supplies you. Remember to stay calm and controlled as you observe the wonderful life around you. Know that your owner cares for you, and that you are loved. Enjoy your walk, and the experience it brings – by AllDogZen.

For dogs who get anxious or aggressive when encountering a strange dog.
When you see another dog, especially one thatʼs unfamiliar to you, remain calm and secure within yourself. Reflect your ownerʼs calm, cool energy. Repeat in your mind…there is no threat; there is no threat; there is no threat. Your owner is safe and canʼt be harmed.
Just focus on keeping your breathing nice and measured. Take deep, even breaths in [inhale] … and out [exhale]. Inhale … and exhale.
If you begin to feel anxious, resist acting out. Stare straight ahead…resist looking at the dog you do not know… and continue moving forward. Follow your ownerʼs lead.

Healing-Anxiety-Throat Chakra (to help control excess Barking)
Written By: Alexa Pellegrini

Lean in to the touch of your owner’s hand gently messaging your throat. A soothing, blue light envelopes the base of your neck, clearing all blockages from your Throat Chakra. Lean into the touch of your ownerʼs hand gently massaging your throat. Relax as you breathe in … [inhale] and out [exhale] … and listen to the rhythmic sounds of your breathing. [possible short break here for music to allow focus on breathing and massage]
Feel the tension disappear from your throat as your pulse slows down. Focus on only on your ownerʼs touch… With each exhale, all negativity and anxiety is leaving your body. Inhale [inhale] … and exhale [exhale], and feel your chest growing lighter. Youʼre safe and secure and have no reason to be afraid.
Every time you want to bark, you will remember the loving energy of your owner and their healing touch on your neck. Instead of barking, you will focus on the sounds of your breathing … the constant of your pulse … and the unconditional love between you and your owner. You are protected in this love.

Your family loves you so and wants you to know how they cherish the joy you bring them daily and nightly because anytime they share with you is oh so rightly!

Inhale the air around your body, lively, through your nose as you feel it fill your full belly. Exhale the unwanted air and toxins as you open your mouth and feel the breath leave your throat and wet tongue. As you stand on the grass, breathing, feel the earth’s pulse through your paws, and draw it up your legs, into your tail and body. Allow it to stimulate all regions of your muscles. Feel your tail twitch with every breath in, and make eye contact with your owner. Watch your owner as they let go of the ball. Use the earth’s pulse to power your feet, and lift them towards the sun, as the ball leaves their hand. As you pant in and out, feel the wind rush past your body, as you chase the ball. As the ball falls towards the earth, open your mouth, and pounce into the air, feeling free and in control, as you catch the ball. When your paws land on the earth again, rejoice in the triumph and accomplishment. Feel your nerves fill with energy, and return the ball back to your owner.

Allow your mind to replenish your body and prepare you for the next throw, feel the cold grass against your paws, and breathe in the earth once again, as you sit. As you sit, feel peace, know you are fast and prepared and feel the energy and relationship between you and your owner.

Dog Play Date:
Written By: Kayla Wright

You are about to meet up with some other dogs. It is important to remember to stay calm, have fun and get along with everyone. Sit down on the floor, and slowly start to prepare yourself to socialize. Breathe in through your nostrils, feel the cold air coat your throat, and fill your belly, full. As you sit and breathe, calmly picture the friendly dogs you expect to see at your play date. Picture the atmosphere of the room, the colors, shapes, and lights. Breathe in…Breath out. Breath in…Breath out. One more time. Breath in…Breath out. Stay mindful of the speed and depth of your breath, as we continue. Let the oxygen molecules flood your brain and body, putting you in a calm and controlled state. As you picture your friends, be aware of the anticipation and excitement that grows in your belly. Breathe in again, and feel the excitement disperse through your paws as you remember to stay happy, but calm. As you sit here on the floor, imagine yourself running. Imagine your paws pushing off from the floor beneath you, and bounding. Imagine the sweat and exhaustion you will feel after you are done. Breathe in.

Feel the oxygen fill every muscle in your heart, then exhale, breathing out all toxic feelings and pent up frustrations. Prepare your heart and mind to be full of love. Breathe in, knowing you are happy. Breathe out, letting go of fear. Breathe in and know every dog loves you, just as you love them. Breathe out, letting go of all your anxieties. Allow yourself to remain sitting, breathing slowly, as you come back to the here and now…You are now ready to enjoy your play date.

Enjoy The Outside:
Written By: Kayla Wright

You are outside, sitting on your hind legs, listening to the world around you. Breathe in the oxygen that floats around your body and feel the wind rush through your fur and skin. Slowly breathe in once more, feel it travel down your throat and into your belly, hold it. Exhale the pent up air inside of your body, slowly. Feel all your anticipations, stress and anxieties dissipate with every exhale. Sit with your head outstretched towards the sky, and breathe in once more. Feel the cold air travel through you and fill you with peace. As you exhale, imagine all the negative energies leave your body. Focus your mind on your body. Feel mother earth’s gentle light wisp around the tip of your tail. As your tail twitches, feel her light slowly climb your tail. As you breathe in, imagine the light move up your body further.

From your paws, up your legs and into your belly. Feel the peace inside of your chest, swell. With one more breath in, feel the light travel up your neck and wrap around your head. Sit and feel the tingles she provides, you are now connected with the universe. As you sit, connected to earth, and her gentle compassion begin to think of the positive things in your life. As you breathe in, let the universe’s energy flow through your head and slowly down to your tail. Allow your mind to wander. Listen to the waves of energy she is providing you. Breathe in her compassion. Exhale hatred. Breathe in love. Exhale anxiety. Breathe in strength. Exhale weakness. As you exhale all the weakness, feel your body grow with strength. Observe the sensation of her light, grow faint. Sit until you feel comfortable moving.

A Beautiful Walk:
Written By: Kayla Wright

Cleansing your body of negative, pent up, and sitting energy will revive your body, and replenish your health and vitality as a dog. Before we begin this journey to replenishing your vitality, I would like you to know that every being of life feels the effects of negative energy, and you are not alone.

Lay down, comfortably, on the soft, green, grass outside. Feel the warm suns energy rays fill your body as your fur absorbs the heat, allowing your body to feel relaxed and at peace. Listen to my voice, trust my sound, as you fall into a deep state of relaxation. Breathe in through your wet nose, and feel the cool air trickle down your throat, filling your lungs with fresh, healthy, air. Then exhale, feeling all the old molecules escape your body, leaving you feeling stronger, as they are recycled back into the atmosphere. As I count up to ten, imagine your body becoming stiller and stiller as you slip into a state of relaxation.
One…Feel you paws fill with awareness and peace.
Two…Feel the peace travel slowly up your ankles, wrapping itself around your legs.
Three…Feel the energy pull relaxation into all of the cells in your legs.
Four…Feel the peace spill into your hips as it wraps around your lower stomach.
Five…Feel the sensation travel up and through your inner organs.
Six…As you breathe in once more, feel the relaxation penetrate your heart, and spill out into every blood vessel of your body.
Seven…Focus on the path of travel as it creates a numbing feeling in your shoulders and front paws.
Eight…Feel your front side dampen with the peaceful tingle, and allow yourself to dive further into relaxation.
Nine…Feel the relaxation rush into your mind and fill your face, relaxing every muscle.
Ten…Sit still, and feel the active energy wave start in your paws and travel through your body…your heart…and your face…then feel it slowly travel down to your paws, filling you with the deepest peace of mind.
Listen to my voice, and imagine your health growing and bursting with each affirmation I repeat to you.
Imagine yourself running. You feel no physical exhaustion, just the peace and exhilaration of the wind swirling around your fur. As you run, feel the suns heat fill you with positive knowledge. Allow the sun to repair any feeling of sadness and doubt in your mind.
You are strong, healthy and happy.
As you run along the peaceful street, notice a body of water start to form around you. Feel the ground turn into soft, glowing sand. Don’t stop running, feel the air grow cooler as you pump your legs harder and harder towards the body of water. Feel the sand dampen with every stride closer…then…feel the cool water splash up around your energetic body. Become still, and drink plenty of water, hydrating your cells, filling your body with vitality and health.
You are energized and passionate about all aspects of your life.
As you splash around in the water and splendid sunshine, you hear a whistle in the distance. Your body becomes still and concentrated as you trace it through the summer breeze. In a matter of moments you run of in the direction of the whistle, excited to see your owner. As you run back into the familiar neighborhood, you find your owner sitting on the porch waiting for you.
You are obedient, well-behaved and loved, every day.
As I count up to five, imagine yourself running closer to your owner, returning back to the world around you.
One…You paws feel light against the pavement.
Two…You feel energized and full of vibrant life as you see the fence come into view.
Three…You feel the excitement of seeing your owner fill your muscles and mind as he grows closer and closer.
Four…You run through the gate, and up the porch stairs feeling a sense of belonging with each stride you take.
Five…You feel the touch of your owners hands against your soft fur, and open your eyes, feeling revived and replenished in every sense.

Down To The Doggy Playground:
Written By: Kayla Wright

You are on a leash, and just got done walking around. Your owner begins stroking your head, and petting you. As you obey your owner, you look out in front of you, and inside a large metal fence, are other dogs, running around, playing. You feel the excitement build from your paws and slowly, Mother Nature’s energy begins to make its way up to your legs. Then you feel your tail twitch, back and forth as the excitement continues, wrapping its way up your legs, and through your hips. You begin to pant as your owner stops petting you, and they unhook your leash.
Stay sitting, and breathe in the rest of the warm, summer breeze, waiting for your owner’s word.
Your tail and panting gets faster and faster, as your owner walks to the fence and opens it for you. You look at your owner, for a split second, then you breathe in.
You breathe in, and as you do, your paws fill with lighter energy, and you take off. As you pant and slowly breathe in the air around you, the energy powers your stride, and you run straight through the gate, and into the field of green grass.

You feel the soft grass envelope your fur, and the breeze wrap around your body, as you look around, for someone to play with. You see an average sized dog, begin to walk towards you, sniffing the air, wanting to make friends. You bow your head, slowly, letting him grow nearer and nearer.
You begin to circle one another, breathing in one another’s energies, and then the dog stops, looks up at you…panting, he takes off, in a blurred dash. The excitement of your new friend fuels your energy, and you chase after him, pouncing and playing in the grass and dirt that surrounds you. After a few moments pass, you run back to your owner, rolling around in the dirt around them.
You watch them set out a bowl of water by you, and you walk over, putting your head down, panting, to take a drink. You feel the cool water hit your tongue, and splash down your throat. The cool water taste nice inside of your body, and begins to cool your hot fur down, and calm your mind.

As you drink the last drop of water, you look up, and your friend is waiting, with a yellow looking disk in his mouth. You look up at your owner, twitching your tail as he rubs you between your ears. You dash off, towards your new friend, feeling the wind shape around you, and your owner follows.
You and your friend, sit in the tall grass, as your owner picks up the disc. You both begin to pant. You watch the disc cut through the air, as you both begin to dash off in the direction of it, racing towards it. As you two get closer, another dog, jumps in, catching the disc between its mouth, wanting to play.
You breathe in the warm air around you, as you and the other dog’s line up again, waiting for the disc to fly through the air.
As you sit there waiting, you feel energy pulse through your paws, and into your heart. The energy livens your muscles up, and you feel a tingling sensation of bliss fill your lungs, and surrounding organs, with every breath in.
