Each Zoom Room is independently owned and operated. Please select your nearest Zoom Room by clicking on LOCATIONS in the menu.
What kinds of dog training classes do you offer?
Dog agility, obedience training, puppy training, dog tricks training and a wide range of innovative advanced dog training classes. To find out more, please consult our Master List of Dog Training Classes.
Can I enroll in dog training classes online? How much do they cost?
Absolutely. You can enroll by phone, in person, or online. Please click on LOCATIONS in the menu to select your nearest Zoom Room in order to find schedules and enroll online.
How big are the classes?
Class size is limited to six dogs for most group classes, and ten dogs for obedience training and Puppy Preschool.
How long are the classes? How often do they meet?
Most of our classes are fifty minutes long. Most workshops meet weekly for six weeks. Other classes are “single session,” meaning you can come as often as you like.
Can I bring my kids with me?
Yes, we encourage kids, but each child must have an adult escort on site to participate in class. We also have after-school dog training classes specially designed for kids and their dogs, and a special summer camp for kids.
How old do I have to be?
Children eight and up may participate in dog training classes with an adult escort.
Is there an extra charge for couples?
If you and your signficant other or other family member wish to come together to classes, you are welcome to do so. There are no extra charges for more than one person to participate, but due to space restrictions in the center, there is a per-dog limit of two people for group classes. Private dog training classes have no restrictions for other household members.
Do you also provide grooming or boarding?
No, we are a dog training and event center – in addition to classes, we offer dog birthday parties, private rentals and host special events, but no grooming or boarding.
Can I drop off my dog and have you train him? Or can you come to our home?
No. We’re all about deepening the bonds of communication between you and your dog using positive training methods. We train you to train your dog, in the company of wonderful like-minded dog lovers.
Will my dog be on-leash or off-leash?
Dog agility training is taught mostly off-leash, except for Dog Agility 1. Obedience training is primarily taught on-leash. In general, all of our advanced classes work toward full off-leash control.
Do I need to purchase any special equipment?
No, you just need to bring your dog on a collar and leash. Please consult our Zoom Room Policies & Procedures for a list of approved collars and harnesses.
Do you have on-site medical staff?
Safety is our highest concern, and all of our dog trainers are trained in basic first aid for dogs. A 24-hour emergency clinic is less than a mile away for conditions requiring more extensive care.
Can I bring both of my dogs to training classes?
Yes, although you may only handle one dog at a time during dog training classes. We recommend bringing a friend or family member to handle your second dog. Or you can also sign up for private classes. We have special rates for Private Training for Two Dogs.
What if my dog is aggressive to other dogs?
If your dog is great around people, but tends to get nippy and aggressive around other dogs, please contact us for a consultation, so that we may advise you of the best course of action. Most likely, we will recommend private obedience training classes.
If my dog isn’t learning, can I get a refund?
We find that all dogs can benefit from professional dog training, even if they’ll never make it on Animal Planet. For workshops, refunds are only offered after the first class minus a teaching and administrative fee. Please read our posted Zoom Room Policies. Otherwise, there are no refunds for our services.
Can I come by just to use the agility course?
Yes! We offer an indoor dog park option which we call Private Gym for quality exercise time with your dog, whatever the weather. Up to three dogs may attend these sessions, off leash, at times convenient to you.
Can I watch a class before I sign up?
Yes, you may come watch a session prior to enrolling, however please call ahead so we can greet you.
