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.

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.

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

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

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

Fabulous! Love it! So much fun! Mel is great and loves her job!

- SS, who enjoyed private training with Ginger

Great experience! Molly gets exhausted from the mental stimulation. She's been getting more confident in herself, and seems to be blossoming! We couldn't be happier.

- J.D., who enjoyed Private 30-minutes, weekly with Molly

This is a fantastic outing for both human and dog. We get a lot of pleasure out of going and doing. Both Mel & Blaine are wonderful. I have referred lots of people too.

- Gail Latimer, who enjoyed Agility 2 and now Agilty 3 - Agility League with Timmy

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

It has been nothing but positive! They are great!

- Rene Brookbank, who enjoyed Agility and Obedience with Stitch

Fun and worthwhile

- Gayle Wayne, who enjoyed Agility with Dakota

My experience at the Zoom Room was great. I liked the calm atmosphere. I liked how the trainers listened to my concerns and worked with me.

- Elizabeth Thompson, who enjoyed Private 1/2 hr with with Beau

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

We have taken several agility and obedience classes ranging from puppy level to level 2 and we love every single class we have been too. Blaine and Mel are both amazing at instruction and make the class so fun for me and my dog.

- Terra Westlake, who enjoyed Agility, obedience with Piper

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

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

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

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!

- Tanya Ramirez, who enjoyed Agility 1/Agility2 with Lily

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 II with Kilobyte

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

Mel has been great the whole time. She is a great instructor who communicates really well and the dogs are very responsive to her. Trixie loves her! I also really love the clean, open environment at zoom room. The whole staff at HB location is so friendly and welcoming and create a really positive and enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend to friends!

- Suhaila, who enjoyed Obedience training with Trixie

awesome! We have been having a blast! We talk about it all the time! Rex has fun too! When we start to walk towards the zoom room, Rex gets all ' doggy excited'.
We are so glad you are here! We love you guys too!

- Deanna Kavanagh, who enjoyed agility 1 and 2, and a doggy meet up with Rex

Totally Awesome! Blaine and Mel are so supportive and helpful. Lucy loves the Zoom Room. When we say Zoom Room she gets so excited, so much so that sometimes she will do a aerial 360!

It was great

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.

- Kamie H., who enjoyed Agility I with Roman

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.

- Linda Carpenter, who enjoyed The sampler package and Agility I and Agility II with Roxy

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Facility is clean, organized & functions well.

- Laurie Fisser, who enjoyed PRIVATE, OBEDIENCE, AGILITY with ROXY

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

Instructors are incredible and make the class fun for the dogs and their owners! Great learning environment! Can't believe how much these classes are helping my dog feel more self confident and less afraid to be approached by new people!

- Elizabeth Toumajian, who enjoyed Agility classes with Oliver

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

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

Love the facility and the training is easy to understand. The methods give confidence to both the human and the animal.

I'm hooked and recommend Zoom Room for every dog young and old!

Thanks guys,
Christa

- Christa sears, who enjoyed Obedience and agility with Goliath

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

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

Kai loved class ... his tongue his hanging after each session. I understand what we work on and we are progressing well

- sonia regenfuss, who enjoyed private lesson with kai

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

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

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.

- Tanya

it was lots of fun. the owners are very nice and know what they are doing! so professional and polite!

- Deanna Kavanagh, who enjoyed agility 2 with Rex

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

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.

- Susan Conroy, who enjoyed Puppy preschool with Nike

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

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

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