Hotrod is a 18 month Golden Retriever with a lot of energy. We asked David to give Hotrod some basic training - stop jumping on guests, stay, leash walking, etc. I am amazed, I told my husband to find a new home for Hotrod - but instead he wanted to try some training. David has done an amazing job with Hotrod in only 5 days! We will definitely bring Hotrod to David's again as we are keeping Hotrod in our family.

David was amazing with our two dogs! The training he provided for our puppy was out of this world and we were so shocked to see how much she improved and learned in such a short matter of time. David has a great passion for what he does and it shows! Our pups were so happy and well taken care of. David has a great set up at his home and we constantly received pictures and videos and updates. We would highly recommend him to take care of your fur babies and will be using him again in the future. Thank you David for a fantastic experience!

Hello! My name is David Michael Sanders, CPDT-KA, owner of Zen K9 Obedience & Boarding. Many years ago my grandmother bought me a Pit Bull/Boxer mix; from that day forward my life has been dedicated to the nurturing care and companionship of the domestic canine. I believe it is the intrinsic bond of trust, clear and consistent direction, combined with the reward he/she loves the most that gets a dog to perform. I have trained hundreds of dogs with tremendous success from incessant marking Maltese’s to 150lb male aggressive Mastiffs. 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 Zen K9 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.
