Zen Chien head chef Megan Montgomery calls her service "Dean and DeLuca for dogs." Her downtown Brooklyn business provides personal pet chef service for dogs. Their additive- and preservative- free menu consists of home-cooked meals delivered weekly, with names sounding worthy of sampling: Mediterranean Lamb, South American Chicken, and zero grain Yogurt Parmesan Chicken.
The human-grade ingredients are sourced from farmers' markets and high-end grocers, and the meals are supplemented with calcium, trace minerals and essential oils.
Other luxurious services available for canines include dog massage and hydrotherapy … or as most pet lovers refer to the free versions, petting and swimming.
