Biography

Tibor Feigel, owner of Zen-K9, LLC, has 15 years of experience as a dog behavior specialist.  He began his career in New York City, shortly after moving to the United States from Hungary. At first, Tibor started a dog-walking business in Manhattan. Since communicating with dogs has always come naturally for him, it was easy to teach his clients how to correct their dog’s behavior problems. His reputation as a dog behavioral specialist quickly spread and he became one of the most sought-after dog trainers in the community.

Tibor earned his degree in Biology and Physical Education from a teacher’s training college in Hungary. During this time, he studied psychology, zoology, and ethology (the study of animal behavior) extensively, which provided the foundations of his knowledge and beliefs in his field of expertise.

After relocating to South Florida in 2009, Tibor became an active volunteer at local animal welfare organizations in Palm Beach County. In the last few years, Tibor has volunteered countless hours at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control; and assisted other rescues including Big Dog Ranch Rescue; Tri County Humane Society; Furry Friends Rescue; Okeechobee Humane Society; Coastal Boxer Rescue, and Forgotten Dog Rescue among others.  Over the years, he has educated staff members and volunteers on proper handling techniques and common behavioral modifications. He has assisted rescue organizations in evaluating, training, rehabilitating, and re- homing canines.

Success Stories

Zen-K9 has saved the lives of countless rescue dogs from euthanasia. Most of them were labeled “un-adoptable” due to severe aggression and biting issues. We work with these types of dogs at our rehabilitation center in Palm Beach County in order to modify their behavior. We introduce them to our pack so they learn to socialize, gain confidence and become a balanced part of our society.

Tibor is an amazing trainer and a wonderful person. Mikey would never be the dog he is without the confidence that Tibor worked with him to achieve. Mikey may never be 100% free if the trauma he sustained in a puppy milk, but now he gets to be a happy, healthy dog and that is be sure if Tibor and Zen-K9.

Lois B. Levy (August 24, 2013)

Tibor and Zen-K9 are the best there is. Tibor has been working with my dog Skylar. One session with us and she was a different dog and we were different people with her. Not only were we more peaceful and in control. Skylar was more peaceful and seemed to have a weight lifted off her back too. Thank you Tibor!!!!
