If your dog’s behavior is leaving you frustrated, we can put you on the right track. Our dog obedience training classes use proven, scientific-based, positive-reinforcement dog training methods to help you communicate with your dog. We’ll help you get the behaviors you need from your pal. Whether you want basic manners or serious off-leash control, our dog obedience training curriculum is designed for your peace of mind.
At the Zoom Room, we offer dog obedience training with a difference. Our dog obedience classes are designed to get you and your dog working on practical, effective behaviors immediately. You will learn all the basics, plus more, so that getting – and keeping – your dog’s attention, even in distracting environments, becomes second nature.
Our obedience classes emphasize fun and positive motivation, not only for your dog, but for you as well! We incorporate games and challenges to help make obedience less of a chore and way more fun.
In our Obedience 1 class, for example, you’ll even get taste of our Agility and Tricks classes, so you can decide if you’d like to continue on to more advanced obedience (culminating in our Therapy Dog class), or if you’d like to move into Agility or Tricks.

Description: Taking your dog for a walk should be a joy, not a hassle. Do you walk your dog, or does your dog walk you? If you’ve got a pup who pulls, balks, lunges, leaps, squirms, and every verb other than walk when on leash, this class is for you. We’ll work on heeling, leash control and response to distractions.
Private one-on-one instruction covers basic obedience in and around the house, with on and off-leash control. You will learn how to effectively communicate with your dog and solve basic behavior problems like jumping, housebreaking, barking, and nipping. After on-leash skills are mastered, you will learn voice control over your dog from a distance, hand signals, and distraction control. You can choose single sessions to focus on issues of special concern, or purchase a discounted package of four sessions for more comprehensive training.
