My Name is Tibor Feigel , the lead trainer at Zen-K9 who teaches: handeling to owners and obedience to dogs through exercise, discipline, correction and affection, from puppy training to red-zone cases - including separation anxiety, self confidence problems, fearful aggression, leash aggression, socialization, etc.I am from Hungary and studied Animal Behavioral and Human Psychology for 5 Years.I have worked with pets for over 15 years mainly with dogs.I came to see that the basic steps of ZEN Buddhism that I practiced could also work for the dogs.The ultimate goal of the Buddhist path to enlightment is acheeving a ZEN -Balanced state of mind.I incorporated this into my teaching philoshophy which would create a balanced state not just for the Dog but between the owner and his Dog.I Use a Program at ZEN-K9 called "walk with Me"which is the shared experience for the owner and his Dog.In some cases the Dogs have an easier time--by their very nature,theyare focused and not as easily distracted as We are--we can learn so much from them if we just try to understand their Nature ,Purpose and their reaction to the world around them.So my goal is to teach the owners to have a mind-body and spirit connection with their pets.First we must honor and understand their Purpose-understand the way they relate to the natural enviroment and to other dogs or pets.Their Purpose is to be a part of a pack-remember they are born in litters thus you see me working with dogs in groups-i am better able to deal with their behavior issues and enxieties as they relate to each other.Many People have remarked that my dog groups look like meditation class.Dogs live in the moment and if its balanced we can learn how to be there with them-we can learn how to take stress out of our lives.THERE IS NO BETTER STRESS REDUCTION THAN THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FROM YOUR BALANCED PET!The philosophy of Zen-K9 is to balance the owner with their pet and achieve a bond ofloving trust...and remember your pets can connect you to your inner peace.In my Zen-K9 programs I can teach you all to be ZEN-MASTERS...within minutes you can be handling 20 dogs,I do this by giving you the confidence of knowing how to connect to the dogs.Dogs are the most amazing companions in the world-they love you and will never leave you-their nature is to fit in.So lets work together and let us help you find those "tools" to find ZEN balanced state of mind for you and for your pets.

Canine Master in NYC
posted 5 years ago
I was walking through Central Park NYC the other day and had the good fortune of meeting Tibor (Zen K9) and three of his staff. They were walking 25 dogs together. I have never experienced anything like what I saw. I quickly recognized that the dogs had complete trust and repsect for the handlers. This was a very content, at ease, well mannered group of dogs of varying ages. When the handlers stopped, all the dogs stopped and either sat down or layed down. As other people passed by with their own dogs, Tibor's group of dogs ignored them. Their eyes were on Tibor and his staff. It was absolutely amazing to see the connection between the dogs and the handlers. After 30 minutes talking with Tibor and watching the dogs - just laying there waiting for him to resume the walk - I was setting up an appointment to bring my dogs from Arizona to spend a few days there for training. I will never forget the bond I witnessed that day between man and animal. It is obvious that Tibor has acquired the ability and the teaching techinques that result in a pet that is happy, disciplined, loyal, and self confident. I can't wait to get back there to learn more about his training methods.
Pros: Tibor has the gift of 'knowing' dogs
Cons: I'm not there learning his technics right now !!

We love Tibor and Zen K-9!

Tibor has been helping our family with our labradors for about 3 years now. He was called to our home when our yellow lab (about 3 years old) was behaving aggressively toward dogs other than ours (we have 3 labs) and with the neihghboring horses. Tibor taught our family a lot of training techniques and has been taking our two younger labs into NYC 2x per week for over a year now. They are well taken care of at all times with Zen K-9. When Tibor arrives at our home in Greenwich, CT our dogs are happy and anxious for their leads and hop right into the SUV. They come home happy, well excercised, socialized and tired from a fun-filled day.
Our vet commented last month that our yellow lab is "another dog" from what she was even 18 months ago. She is much more relaxed and well behaved.
Kudos Tibor and Zen-K9!! Keep up the good work.
The Purse Family, Libby, Melly and Derby
Pros: Experienced, Professional, Wonderful with my dogs
