It is awesome. Can't believe how much Lucy loves the Zoom Room. She's on the teeter now, and l-o-v-e-s it. Got the weave down. She needs to have her mind as well as her body worked, so Zoom Room HB has been the perfect answer.

- Janie Broadbent, who enjoyed Agility and Agility League with Lucy

The Zoom Room is the best thing that has happened for Huntington Beach Dogs in a long time! The positive training method in an indoor setting is ideal for both dogs and handlers. Petushi has learned so much in a few short months and continues to improve each week. She enjoys the stimulation and variety, and, of course, being around all those other dogs! Thank you Zoom Room for coming to Huntington Beach!

- Lynn Haye, who enjoyed Obedience 1,2,3 and agility 1 with Petushi

The classes have been fun and entertaining for both "Mr Hueys" and me. We both have learned a lot. Mel & Blane make the classes challenging and fun for each dog & their individual abilities.

- Mary J, who enjoyed 1st-agility1, 2nd- scent training with Huey

It has been nothing but positive! They are great!

- Rene Brookbank, who enjoyed Agility and Obedience with Stitch

It was an excellent experience and Mel and Blaine were grest. Our dog Rio, had such a great time and she did really well. I have been recommmending the Zoom Room to my friends. It is a wonderful facility with great instructors.

- Brian and Nancy Kleeman, who enjoyed Ten lessons of obedience. with Rio

We love the Zoom Room! We found it by accident while looking for something to do with Gizmo and now we are "regulars." Gizmo loves the Zoom Room and her friends there. She got hurt and scared about a week ago and everybody has been great about helping her overcome her fears and get back into the fun!

- Katy, who enjoyed Obedience, agility trainning, agility league, meet ups, private gym with Gizmo

Sadie and I are overjoyed by our experiences at Zoom Room. Blaine and Mel are so awesome! Patient, kind, loving, and passionate about training ME to communicate with Sadie. Sadie loves her agility training and enjoys her obedience lessons, too. I am amazed at what a difference this has made in our relationship. Our time at the Zoom Room makes Sadie happy, which makes me happy, which makes Sadie happier and on and on. Sadie says Zoom Room gives her the WIGGLES BIG TIME!

- Christine Morse, who enjoyed Private Obedience Training 1 with Sadie

Kilobyte and I always love visiting the H.B. Zoom Room. Mel and Blane are great teachers and very friendly to each person and dog that comes through the door. Our most recent agility class featured the start to teaching us the curved tunnel. Mel had great tips for the owners as to how to get our dogs through without them being scared that they couldn't see the other side. She also times us near the end of class, which gives the owners a great opportunity to track their personal progress. We also appreciated that during the timed runs it was just us in the training area. Each dog gets special attention during timed runs, which is important at the lower levels (less distractions while they're perfecting their use of agility equipment.) Mel also notices if a dog is too distracted (ahem...my dog) :) She will break out a super stinky salmon treat...it always works wonders if my pup has caught wind of a more interesting smell during class time. She knows her tools and how and when to use them. I will be attending many more classes and events at this location in the future.

- Aughty K., who enjoyed Agility 2 with Kilobyte

A great time! Lucy (and I) are learning quickly! She has lots of energy to burn off, so she really loved the Meet-Up last night! She & half-dozen others raced around for a full hour before the first one laid down!

The agility training is lots of fun for both of us. She isn't afraid of anything! We are heading back for another class this afternoon.

- Joanne Spagle, who enjoyed Obedience 1, Agility 1, meet-up with Lucy

We had an amazing time taking agility classes. It's a great way to burn off some extra energy from your dog while giving them a mental work out at the same time. I also believe it helps calm some fears, my dog is no longer shy about jumping up onto higher areas, I also notice him walking up on the thin curb on the sidewalk now....like he's pretending to walk a doggie tight rope. The instructors are great, and they make sure that you are building a relationship with your dog. They understand this is supposed to be a fun time for your dog, and will speak up if they see you go into "Dance Mom" mode and getting frustrated with your pup. They are very encouraging and treat every dog the same whether they are ready to go into competition, or if they are still just wanting to walk around and sniff all of their classmates instead of completing an obstacle. I would recommend the classes to anyone. Blain and Mel are great instructors and have incredible patience with people and dogs. The customers that hang around and watch are all very friendly too, it's really a great environment. I also love that they hold social events for different sized dogs, and sometimes certain breeds. They also host adoption events from time to time, which I strongly support, and I think it is great that they also take the time to help out the dog community.

- Aughty K, who enjoyed Agility 2 with Kilobyte

I love both Mel and Blane. They are great instructors! Jordi and I are having a great time together at our agility classes. We also just joined the league and look forward to more fun at the league sessions.

We are so glad you are here! We love you guys too!

Gabby is a much better behaved dog now. She has more focus and a channel for her boundless energy.

- Richard Green, who enjoyed Agility Training with Gabby

Absolutely the best!!! Mel is a wonderful, knowledgeable, conscience and kind trainer. I have a 9 month old 5 lb toy poodle with some shyness issues and Mel has been able to help her work through them. She trains with a kind, non-punitive, very positive style. I have been one other place and Zoom Room with Mel and Blaine is simply the best!

- Christine B., who enjoyed Small dog get togethers & Obdience 1 & 2 with Tootsie

We did agility 1 once and Blane said we were ready for 2, and he was right, Abbey did great. They create such a relaxed and positive atmosphere and manage the training so both the owner and dog feel successful. So after only 2 sessions we were able to do all the "props" in Agility2. Abbey loved it as did I. It is so much fun and so positive.

- Kathy W, who enjoyed agility 2 with Abbey

Timmy loves going and learning. I enjoy the time we spend together. Both Blaine & Mel are wonderful people and great instructors.

- Gail Latimer, who enjoyed Agility 2 and now Agilty 3 - Agility League and Scent Workshop - Ladies night & small dog meet up with Timmy

Our rescue Lizzie needed specific training and I had tried two other dog trainers before Blaine. Neither one of them made an impact like Blaine did!

He has been the best trainer for her with his positive approach and gentle demeanor.
We plan on group lessons next which are recommended by Blaine!

- Rose Prochnow, who enjoyed 8 weeks private with Blaine with Lizzie

Kelly and I are really enjoying it. Mel is a patient and kind instructor. We are going again tonight for agility.

- Jean Rowley, who enjoyed Obediance with Kelly

Great! Mel and Blaine are delightful, helpful, always watching out for safety issues, much appreciated . They keep the room spotless ! Communications are excellent.

- Mona Gillman, who enjoyed Obedience 2, agility 3 with Vivian

It was a fantastic experience, my dog loved going to the Zoom Room and loved his trainer, Blane. I learned during the sessions and hope to keep up on it with my dog. We plan to rent the Zoom Room for 3 - 30 minute sessions and allow our dogs to play with other neighborhood dogs. We will go back to training in the future

- shirley siracusa, who enjoyed private training with bully

We love training with Blane. Waffles gets so excited when we arrive at the Zoom Room and has gained confidence through agility training.

- Kristi Williams, who enjoyed Private Training with Waffles

I always feel so welcome. Coffee is ready for me and Maya loves to come. Thank you Mel and Blane

- Geri Steenveld, who enjoyed agility with Maya

We came to the right place for Captain Jack. the training instructed was spot on. He was able to pick up the commands very quick. Our instructor, Mel, was amazing. She knows what she is doing, and know how to handle the animal. Cant wait to go back! Highly Recommended!

- Samuel, who enjoyed private lessons with Captain Jack

Our dog (an English Bulldog) had a couple socialization problems with other dogs in our neighborhood. Luckily, The Zoom Room had just opened up and I was looking for a non-invasive training technique to help not only training him, but get him socialized and learn to listen. From training to agility to socialization...Beckham has grown leaps in bounds in the 8 weeks he's been attending Zoom Room. I can not thank the staff enough for all their hard work in not only training our dog, but training our family as well. I highly recommend Zoom Room for a variety of "problem dogs"...it works.

- Jolene Bogard, who enjoyed Private Training with Beckham

We have such a great time! Good class great vibes its awesome.

- Susie, who enjoyed Agility 1 with Librty

The best. Mel and her husband are knowledgable and so very friendly. Victoria is also helpful. Maya and I both love to come.

Sorry forgot couple name who own the facility. They were a pleasure to deal with and we loved our experience every time we went there. Will continue going and will recommend them to our friends.

You can teach an old dog new tricks… ME At almost 65 I have raised many labs and goldens.. Just finished raising a guide dog lab and she is back to her calling for the blind. I did just purchase a golden, Kai, to be raised with my new grand baby boys like my Shaka that was raised with my children… I have gone through all of the classes over the years at Edison Park and they were fine, but we have never had an opportunity like the Zoom Room.. Mel and Blane are amazing, their ideas are so great and Kai at six months can’t wait to get to class. So many new ideas on training and the small classes are great. Lots of extra opportunities for us to socialize the dogs and fun activities for us as well. He is doing well and now will fine tune him with Mel and Blane to become am amazing dog for my grandkids and a therapy to kids and seniors.. Thank you so much and can’t wait to get to class… Kai and Chris

- I, who enjoyed purchased 10 classes with Kai

Sir Bentley loves to burn off energy at the Zoom Room.
We love the staff!
The staff is always so encouraging and helpful.
Sir Bentley always has a cheering section.

My boxer, Roxy, is making excellent progress in her agility training. The class has also given her confidence. Mel and Blaine truly care about their "students" and their success.

- Linda, who enjoyed Agility I and Agility II with Roxy

Sadie and I are both enjoying every minute we spend at Zoom Room. Blane and Mel are incredible and have helped me learn to communicate effectively with Sadie. Agility training is so fun and great workout for us both. Watch out fellow Bostons at Agility League...Sadie can't wait to compete with her new friends. (Hi Flower!) I appreciate everything you are teaching me, and Sadie says thanks for giving us a place to learn and get our wiggles out!

- Christine Morse, who enjoyed Private Obedience & Agility, Paw-Casso Painting with Sadie

Howie loves it! He gets excited when we arrive in the strip mall where the Zoom Room is!
He's developed confidence and has so much fun! We will take our other Golden, Annie after this session at the Zoom Room!
Howie was a rescue from a very nervous woman who had twins, and couldn't handle him! He was very scared when we got him 8 months ago, and now he's happy and the dog he is meant to be! We think the Zoom Room had a lot to do with it!

- Mary Alice Bendell

It has been a great experience. Mel is very patient. The facility is lovely and well maintained. Love the coffee and water that they always make available.

- Geri Steenveld, who enjoyed agility private training with Maya

Thanks guys,
Christa

Puppy preschool is perfect for our young pup to learn the important skill of proper socialization. She gets lots of time for constructive play during this class and gets to work on her simple commands and focus. Mel and Blaine make the puppy training experience personal and great instructors. I would recommend the Zoom Room to anyone!

- Terra, who enjoyed Puppy preschool with Piper

The class is a safe and fun place to help my dog learn control, restraint, focus and some great obstacles! He gets excited when we pull in the parking lot - he knows what we are going to do....he leaves exhausted!
I love how much he is growing and learning each time.
I tell all of my friends about this place because it is a constructive way to use up energy and challenge your pup:)

- Sherry S, who enjoyed Agility 1 with Lucky

Awesome and great . Blaine has taught me so much and my dog goes bonkers he is so excited to go to class

- My Info, who enjoyed agility league and private lesson with kai

My dog Gidget & I have enjoyed our classes at the Zoom Room. We are learning new things every week & she shows such enthusiasm because of the fun games incorporated into her lessons. Since we've started our classes together I've noticed an increase in her self-confidence, her willingness to pay attention and to try new things. I would recommend the Zoom Room to anyone who wants to improve their communication with their dog and to those looking for a fun place to learn new activities to enjoy together.

- K. Russell, who enjoyed Obedience 2 with Gidget

Both my puppy and I love Zoom Room. It a great place for puppies to learn socialization skills and my kids are learning how to train their dog. The instructor has at great attitude and sound teaching skills.

Lily gets so excited when she knows she is going to Zoom Room. Lily (and her Dad:) have learned a lot over the last few months at Zoom Room thanks to the awesome instructors.

Both Blaine and Mel are wonderful with the dogs and with the owners. My son also enrolled his Valley Bulldog puppy, Rocko, in the puppy classes. He has also done the puppy meet ups and made great progress. I have not yet taken Roxy to the medium dog meet ups but have heard very good feed back about about them. The agility course set up is excellent and they ofer classes to accommodate all skill levels. If you would like I can send you a video of Roxy doing her Agility at the zoom room after only two lessons.

We love Zoom Room and so does Lucky! He is doing really well and we are thrilled with the positive reinforcement and training received! We have already recommended Zoom Room to several dog lovers!

- Deborah Lengele, who enjoyed Private lessons with Lucky

Doing private training and agility has really helped Gunner as he had issues being around other dogs. He is more confident in himself and is getting so much better around other dogs! In trips to the dog beach, he now let's others sniff him - HUGE success!! He has so much fun at Zoom Room that he doesn't like to leave :)

- Stephanie Burke, who enjoyed Private training with Gunner

- Elizabeth Toumajian, who enjoyed Agility classes with Oliver

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks at Zoom Room! Our 10-year old Weimaraner has been taking Agility 1 classes for a few weeks now, and he LOVES it. It's fun for the whole family, and we will definitely keep going into other classes with him.

- Marty and Janie B, who enjoyed Agility with Lucy

My dog Gracie was living on the streets. I enrolled her in the classes at the Zoom Room to build up her confidence. The positive reinforcement was the perfect way to build Gracie's confidence. The trainers were wonderful with both of us. Gracie and I will continue to attend classes and events at the Zoom Room.

- Michelle, who enjoyed Agility, private training for therapy dog test with Gracie

We are having a blast having our bulldog in the Agility League. My 12 year old daughter is his trainer...and its great exercise for the two of them (dog and child). Great opportunity for them to feel like they are on a team, root each other on, and better their time on the equipment.

- Jolene, who enjoyed Aglility League with Beckham

I have a big goofy bulldog/boxer mix that I thought would never do well in Agility but Mel convinced me to come to a class. Now... my dog's a star!! Amazingly he is very fast and responsive - I never would have known that if she hadn't made me try. We are now starting Agility 3 and I am hooked!

- Nuuana Robinson, who enjoyed Agility 1 & 2 with Murphy

Experience = awesome! The classes are well structured and effective. Mel and Blane provided me with practical suggestions on how to I could address specific problem areas in my dog's behavior. The classes were even tailored to do extra work in those areas. Mel and Blane create a fun, team oriented environment between everyone in the classes. The dogs are always happy to be there, and everyone shares in the excitement as each dog learns and improves.

- Rebecca Brown, who enjoyed Obc 1,2,3 with Dozer

Very positive experience, my dog and I learned a lot. Great socialization experience for my puppy as well.

- Kathy Nomura, who enjoyed puppy obedience with Guinness

My dog and I had a really positive experience at the Zoom Room. We took private lessons and our trainer was very patient and caring towards my dog. She taught me the skills on how to work with my dog. We learned a lot in a short time and worked on some behaviors that need changed. My dog loves coming to the zoom room.

- Stacy, who enjoyed private lessons with Ruca

Blane and Mel have been great with Wally! Wally has learned many commands, is working on loose leash walking, and has made a lot of progress with agility. I'm really looking forward to starting Agility League in November. Wally and I could not be happier with the Zoom Room at Huntington Beach!

- Kristyn, who enjoyed Obedience & Agility Classes with Wally

Blane is a great trainer & really good with my dog, Ruby. She LOVES going to the Zoom Room! We did some private lessons, then tried out a group agility. It was a little bit too much for my dog, so they happily switched me back to private lessons and even comped a session! Blane & Mel are awesome!

- Jenise G., who enjoyed private Agility classes with Ruby

Lily & her family (us) were very comfortable & eager to start.Lily soared from Agility 1 to Agility 2 because of the professional instructors. She picks up instruction up quickly & enjoys every minute of class. Lilys goal is to participate in Agility League which I have no doubt that she will do with her family beside her and the Zoom Room training! GO LILY!
