About David Michael

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

We provide a safe home for your beloved pet while offering personalized attention and daily activities like lure coursing, group walks and interactive games to ensure your dog/s have a wonderful time! Grounded in science, our training methods are all positive reinforcement based. If you are looking for a trainer who instills love, respect and understanding, you have come to the right place.

Hello! My name is David Michael, owner of ZenK9 Obedience & Boarding. Thirty six years ago, my grandmother bought me a Pit Bull/Boxer mix;from that day forward my life has been centered around the nurturing care and companionship of the domestic canine. I believe it is the intrinsic bond of trust, with clear and consistent direction, combined with the reward he loves the most that gets a dog to perform. I have trained hundreds of dogs with tremendous success from incessant marking Maltese's to 150 lb male aggressive Mastiff's. I have used every technique available to me to make sure everything has been done to educate my clients and successfully train their dog/s.

The ZenK9 philosophy is based on Buddhism. The vast interconnectedness of affluent energy is the very fabric of relationships between man and beast, as well as our environment. Everything is connected; therefore, if we expect to change the behavior of our beloved companions, we too must change.

This was our 10th time leaving our little dog with David. He is super with our dog. She has improved so much in socializing since we first left her with him a year ago.
We haven't been able to trust our little dog to anyone until we met David. He is great with dogs of all sizes. Our little girl is always happy to go visit David and always happy and relaxed when we pick her up. The most impressive thing about Davis visit David and always happy and relaxed when we pick her up. The most impressive thing about Davis is that he "knows" dogs, not just a dog fancier who likes dogs.
