Welcome to the Zoom Room Culver City, providing excellent service and exceptional dog training for dogs and their owners in Culver City, Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Playa del Rey, West Los Angeles, and all surrounding areas. We offer positive dog training in group or private classes. You can also rent the facility for birthday parties, meet-up groups or special events.
It was a wonderful experience. My dog learned so much and most importantly, we learned how to handle her when she gets way too excited around other dogs by using commands & techniques. Sarah was extremely knowledgeable & taught us so much.
We love going to Zoom Room just as much as Miso does! The trainers here are exceptional, and we cannot believe how far Miso has come since her first day in Obedience 1! Thank you, Zoom Room!
Chowtz has loved her time at Zoom Room. She was already generally a mellow dog before training but her obedience classes and therapy dog training have refined her skills especially around other dogs and distractions, and she is much more focused and calm. I was amazed to see how much she has progressed in such a short time of 4 months and she is almost ready to take the canine good citizen and therapy dog tests. Our trainers Chelsea and Cynthia are always knowledgeable, prepared, patient, and encouraging.
I enjoyed the class and learned a lot from Chelsea. I was able to implement what I've learned from Chelsea each class and practice with Bobo. Bobo is doing well and I am excited for him to learn more. Chelsea took the time and was very patient and resourceful to explain and answer all of my questions. I will highly recommend her to my friends.
We love the Zoom Room and all our instructors. They are able to convey the information we need to train our dogs extremely effectively, without judgement and taking our unique needs into consideration. It is an amazing advantage to take a class only till the point that you need it and then move on to work at your dog's pace. Also, all the instructors are providing the same language and methodology, so there isn't a learning curve for each new person. Our entire family is benefiting from even stronger relationships with our beloved pups. Engaging at the Zoom Room with my teenage daughter has been a blessing in my life. We consider this our favorite activity. My daughter enjoys this more than "shopping or Disneyland"! Thank you all for your support and love.
The classes are great! Simba loves going to Zoom Room and thrives in that environment. The instructors are very good. Sarah is an amazing and knowledgeable trainer; our private session with her netted great results. I have recommended Zoom Room to several people.
Chopper and I LOVE Zoom Room and all three trainers! Chopper has blossomed and gained so much confidence that he is almost unrecognizable as the scared, shaking rescue pup he was when we started. All three instructors are great and I am glad Chopper and I have the opportunity to take classes from all three of them. Plus, I appreciate how patient they are with me, an older human is a little slow at times. They are always friendly, always helpful.
I have had the best experience with Zoom Room. This is my first dog since I was a child so training it properly was a big concern for me and this was the perfect place for just that. Chelsea was an amazing trainer, super friendly and just a really great and knowledgeable person. We'll continue to take classes here for the next couple years I'm sure. You guys are truly awesome at what you do! Thank you!
Sarah is fantastic. She's always happy to see Finley when we arrive. She's ready to go and doesn't keep us waiting. She's energetic and flexible. She'll spend time on whatever I want to cover during our session - teaching Finley agility, new tricks, or talk with me about how to help Finley in situations where he needs improvement. She also suggested the Kibble Nibble dog toy, which Finley loves and keeps him entertained when I have things I need to do at home. We've also started attending the small dog meet ups. It's fun for Finley to meet with the other dogs and be able to practice his agility or just run around the room chasing a ball. Zoom Room and Sarah are the best! We've tried other training centers in LA, but this is our favorite.
This is an awesome facility for pets and owners. A variety of different courses available for any need or want! Dave is extremely genuine and truly cares about the members and their owners. His passion is evident and the members benefit. Paxton loves going there and is learning to be a great dog. I did enjoy Laura for a couple make up classes and was completely happy with her as well. The knowledge base of the specific need is limitless. The ability and willingness to work around my schedule was beyonf helpful!! Thanks Zoom Room!!! Thanks Dave!!
Chelsea is awesome. She has excellent communication skills and does a great job organizing the classes so it meets the needs of the dogs.
Loved it. Tons of personal attention, lots of help, no judgement, explanations clear and easy to follow.
We loved the class and see a big improvement in Molly's skills and can't wait to start her in another class at Zoom Room!
Love working with you, thanks!
The classes are great and never get stale or boring. You can tell the trainers and staff really love what they do. They are always super friendly and encouraging. I always feel welcome when I come in and my dog loves it there.
The class is terrific for both the dog and the handler. The dog learns obedience, agility and gets socialization and confidence at the same time. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in agility. It is also a very nice hour to spend with your pet and an opportunity to give praise and encouragement. As a handler, you learn a lot - how to guide your dog and the consequences of not doing it right.
Ozzie has progressed so well in a short period of time. He's become more confident and more affectionate as well. We've been so happy to see him blossom into a happy, loving, well-behaved dog.
Thoroughly enjoyable! My dog is loving agility and we plan to continue. I like the non-competitive atmosphere. My dog competes against himself, not others. He receives one-on-one attention to help him improve his skills - as do I! We've had many dogs over the years and many trainers. We are finding that our teacher/trainer, David Essex, is among the best. My high-strung dog really listens to him and is able to calm down when he's working with him. Looking forward to Agility 3 and League over the next few months!
Squeeks and I had a great time learning all the commands and obstacles during Agility 1. Stephanie was an amazing instructor who took the time to get to know us and our dogs!
Puppy Preschool has been great, not only for Leo (our Rhodesian Ridgeback), but for us as well. It has taught us the proper training techniques, which means that Leo learns faster. Stephanie has been great in sharing tips on how to handle specific issues. The puppy playtime during class has also been hugely beneficial for Leo. When we first started classes, Leo was shy and wouldn't play with the other pups - now he loves getting in there!
We love Zoom Room!
We look forward to the possibility of another agility 2 or 3 on a Tuesday in the future. We love you!
Meghan is a great teacher! She's the reason we keep coming back! we've been zooming since Finn was a puppy and are now in Agiliy 4 and obedience 3 :)
Sarah is very informative and very patient.
Bicha and I have had a great time. We are using all of the tools Morgan taught us at home and on walks. I have seen such a great improvement with Bicha and am very impressed!
Love it! Sarah has the most amazing demeanor with both Bruno and us, his family. She watches us so closely and directs us in such a way as to remove the pressure from both the handler and Bruno. He's a super fast learner and she's a super responsive trainer. Love Zoom Room and love Sarah!
Out weekly time at the Zoom Room has become on of the best things we do with Mac. The staff is supportive and patient, and has helped both of us come a long way. We've taken 3 classes there and signed up for more today. It's a great place to have some fun, get your dog some exercise, and bond as a team.
Duncan's been having a great time. His first class was in Agility I and was promoted to Agility 2 for the next class. I decided to try out ZoomRoom with a Certificate on Groupon. We love it so much we're going to try classes with the $99 a month program. He can brush up on his behavior and agility. Can't wait!
Kris is the finest, clear, patient and encouraging instructor. We have all been with Kris since Agility 1 and love the camaraderie and support. Go Zoom Room!
Zoom Room's positive reinforcement training has done wonders for Leo. He enjoys his classes, we've both learned a lot, and we can't wait to see how he does in the more advanced group classes. Both obedience and agility classes are exciting, stimulating and reinforce all of the good behaviors Como knew before her baby brother came home. Our goal is to have her pass the Pet Partners requirements by June so we can start to volunteer again. Thank you, Sarah, Iris & Chelsea for all that you do for us!
We love the Zoom Room. It has been so great for my puppy. He enjoys coming to class and has learned proper social interaction and we both have a blast with the agility classes.
This has been a positive experience. Nova really enjoys her training.
We were so very pleased to have finally found a trainer who knows what they're doing! Jaime has been the absolute best trainer ever! Bar none!

Sarah is terrific with th dogs and people as well. Kind understanding effecient and keeps classes fun.
It's a very fun place to take your dog, for the excercise and the training. It's a proud moment when your dog runs the agility course and "gets it" or at least does the best he/she can do. I've also met nice people who share the same love and care for their dog like I do.
Great experience for my Standard Poodle! We took two classes, Obedience 2 and Therapy Dog Training. Bella was an "out of control" 10 month old puppy when we started. Six weeks later, Bella is a calm, well behaved dog who has learned when to be focused on training and when it's OK to play with the other dogs. Can't wait to get us involved in more training, maybe tricks and agility. Great way for humans and dogs to learn together!
Taking Agility One was a very positive and enjoyable experience for me and my dog, Jamie. We both look forward to taking Agility Two! Thank you so much for this wonderful introduction.
Zoom room was the lifeline we were looking for. After going throught private dog trainers and three different pet training places, we thought we were doomed. That was until Our unruly rescued dog was welcomed at zoom room. We started with Obidience class (behind a wall in a separate area from the other dogs) as our Cali could not handle human nor fury contact that wasn't us. We kept asking the instructor (Meghan) what to do, is it going to get better? And she always positively and calmly reassured us that there was light at the end of the tunnel. We just never imagine that the light at the end of the tunnel will come along wiht our dog running out of it!!! As she is already in Agility 3 class and jumping over obstacle like never before. The once anxiously ridden dog, now saunters through the classroom, sits on a table and looks at her fury piers aka zoomers until it is her turn to do what is ask of her. Zoom Room is no longer a class for our dog, it is a family activity that has saved us all. We cannot say enough good things about Cali's trainer (Meghan) and zoom room. We highly recommended it! It is a life changing expericience for the absolute best.
Zou Zou loves it! NIce equipment, small classes, great instructor
Cali would like to take scent class, but will have to wait until summer session!! She loves the Zoom Room!
Meghan is an excellent instructor - thoughtful and finds a way to make it work for you if you are struggling with a specific piece of training. Iris was the other one - only took her once but she was also excellent.
Our class had such a great vibe - dogs all got along great and were of same temperament, which made for terrific class.
I had no idea my dog had this potential. Laura is great. We've really learned a lot. Zoom Room is part of my dog's life...a part that makes him happy and way more loveable.
My 2 Yorkshire Terriers had a Wonderful Time!
This is a great experience and opportunity to bond with your best friend. I'm telling everyone about it! Dave is terrific!
We love the Zoom Room. Agility has been a tremendous bonding experience for us. We go as frequently as we can. The staff is fantastic and we really enjoy our time there. I am always recruiting new dogs while at the park because I am so proud of our achievements.
Sarah is both loving and patient . Missy loves coming to see her and do the things asked of her. A great play date!
Zoom Room Culver CIty rocks! Kris is fabulous and very patient when needed to reinforce learning new skills - more me than my dog Louie! I notice a huge difference in Louie's overall demeanor if we skip going to Agility sessions. He loves the training and is always a happy, tired dog when we leave.
My dog enjoyed it! It was really good for her to get out of the house and even though she (we) had to practice a lot, she seemed to be having a good time!
Our experience at the Zoom Room has been great! Stephanie is a fantastic trainer; she is incredibly kind and patient both with the dogs and the owners. We are very excited to soon graduate to Agility level 3 and continue our work with Stephanie.
Incredible! Training has changed our lives!
The class was great, learned new handling techniques and there were only 2 of us, so we really reviewed several obstacles a lot.
I really enjoyed the experience and will be in touch about signing up for the next session of obedience 1.
love it, love it, love it. Stefanie Lautner is such a pleasure. She doesn't make fun of me when "I don't get it "but my dog does! Stefanie is great on helping me deal with my dog pulling on the leash and not paying attention to me which is difficult as LuLu is not food motivated. I love the time with my dog. I so appreciate being able to have a lesson which is instructive, safe and secure. I can concentrate on the training instead of being anxious about what is going on around us. I feel I am in a place that "loves dogs" and Stefanie's instruction is all about positive reinforcement training. As you can see, I can't say enough good things about my experience. Just I would love to have a site closer to where I live. We would probably live at the Zoom Room. Best use of training $$ I have ever spent.
This class is so cute and fun for my Border Collie/Australian Shepherd! He's taken to it well and Steph makes the class low key and enjoyable, even when the dogs are "competing" for best times in herding! It's definitely a unique and easier alternative than taking my dog to sheep herding out in Malibu! Thank you for making this class and so many other types of classes available to us!
My dog Buddha has definitely had an improvement in behavior after his six sessions in Obedience 1. He also seemed to enjoy the little bit of Agility at the end of class 6.
Looking forward to taking another class soon! David was really great with Frisbee, esp since she is a bit shy. He was very patient :)
Dave is a great teacher and our dog has so much fun....the agility classes are a great way to bond with your dog!!
I really enjoyed the class and look forward to the next one. Kris is a great teacher and the group was a lot of fun.
I attended one group class and one private.. Excellent experience all around. With my difficult dog I was given hope..
Meghan is fantastic. I would not take class from anyone else.
We have really enjoyed our experience at Zoom Room. Our rescue dog had suffered trauma and abuse in her past. When we adopted her, the behaviorist said that Bella was one of the most severe cases that he had seen. After working with her for a few months, we took her to Zoom Room's Dog Obedience 1 and Agility 1. Dave was great with her (and us) and Bella began to socialize with the other dogs and owners. Then, we had a great experience in the Scent Discrimination class. She showed so much growth in the 6 weeks. Kris is amazing! At first she was scared to even put her head in the scent box even though we had her favorite dog treat in the box. Kris made just a few modifications for Bella. Kris was so calm, positive and loving that Bella learned to trust him. By the end of the 6 weeks, she didn't want to leave class.
Forrest really enjoys going to Zoom Room. As soon as we pull up he knows where we are and gets super excited about getting out of the car and in to class. He behaves way better in class than outside, totally puts on his school manners. It has helped me a ton both in regards to his general obedience as well as getting some of his energy out. Agility is right up his ally, he loves it.
Bubble and I have been attending Zoom Room Culver City classes for over 5 years. All the agility level classes, leash walking, crossfit, scent, puplates, obedience, urban herding, and special events. Meghan is always enthusiastic, caring, patient and genuinely positive. Before we met Meghan we had classes with Iris who was very good at challenging me and Bubble. I could tell she loved working without us.
David is terrific with my shy dog and my 16 year old daughter who is the handler.
Steph is the best. Really great instructor.
Jaime, you're wonderful and very knowledgeable about dogs and a very good teacher! I would definitely recommend the Zoom Room to my friends... and already have done so!
My dog, Bubble, has grown leaps and bounds since we started classes with Stephanie. Stephanie definitely has an innate talent for understanding dogs and helping us learn how to connect even more with our dogs. She always provides helpful feedback and takes time to address specific concerns from everyone in the class. She just makes it fun and easy to learn new techniques. She is patient and innovative with us. My dog Bubble has developed confidence and we have a stronger bond thanks to Zoom Room and the caring attention from Stephanie.
We had a great time with agility and will continue - maybe take agility 3 again or league or just pratice.
David really wants to make sure that the dogs and their people have fun. We also really trusted his expertise and his care that the more challenging exercises were approached properly so that the dogs (and their people) were always able to tackle the obstacles without any fears. We're looking forward to agility 2 where we get to experience Alvin doing more adventurous exercises.
Stephanie makes it a wonderful experience for ALL. She has a great way with the animals & teaching the owners how to work with them....
Our experience at the Zoom Room was fantastic!! The class ended up being private lessons as no other dogs signed up. I could tell that both Chris and Stephanie really enjoy what they do- it comes through and translates not only to me but Bruce. I will definately be taking more classes at the Culver City Zoom Room.
My experience at the Zoom Room has been wonderful. The instructor is knowledgeable and very helpful and the people are very friendly too. Every class that Margaret has been in has ben a wonderful experience. I can't wait to start Nellie, my puppy, in the classes too!
Stephanie is great. Abby and I think she is so kind patient warm and caring. We are both learning soooo much
Taking classes at Zoom Room has not only been fun for my dog Frisbee (and me), but it has made her a much more confident and social dog :) We've taken classes with Kris and David and they are both excellent!
Steph is firm but knowledgeable and warm to all the humans and pups in the class. She's great at assuring pet owners on any concerns, correcting any training habits and overall, making the class fun for all!
Although JoJo had already had an obedience class, I learned a lot. After all, JoJo doesn't need the training, I do. :=)
Great experience, thanks Zoom Room!
we have been going to zoom room for years. from obedience to agility, it has always been a great experience for shadow as well as for me.... love it !
We love taking Miso to class. We have seen such an improvement with her behavior since we started at Zoom Room.
as always great trainer.
Great class and great experience! My dog and I will definitely be back to take some of the other classes that the Zoom Room has to offer.
Stephanie is a great teacher, very focused and enthusiastic. Her instructions are very clear and it's amazing to see how well most dogs do at agility class. It has been a lot of fun for myself and my pup and I am looking forward the progress to come! THank you Zoom Room!
Great class - dogs got along well. A very good experience. Really like that it is indoor facility.
Meghan is an amazing dog trainer. My pup learned so much in the few puppy classes he participated in and I'm really excited to start adult classes along with some workshops! Really look forward to taking him every week and I know he looks forward to his classes too.
Great! We enjoyed the class and Maru is improving her confidence during the course. I also appreciate that Chelsea kept a pulse on the group and asked if we should have a play time toward the end of the class.
Really enjoyed the class. David is really great with the dogs and keeps it fun. I had a great time and we both learned a lot. We'll be back!
I learned a lot about how to communicate with my dog Bubble using both verbal and gestural signals. I think Bubble learned faster than I did. Kris always watched us and gave specific feedback to help improve our techniques.
don't know who loves meghan more, my dog or me. classes are huge fun. positive training for both people and animals. encouraging at every point. one thing, though~ Meghan is a stickler for the rules. I would love a 10 minute pre class free-for-all where we all get to bound about with each other's dogs. but I guess that could be dangerous. High marks from me and my dog. We love the experience of zoom room and we come away more bonded than ever.
Morgan was amazing! She is so patient and so kind to all of the animals. She helped us with our hyper pup and was available for questions anytime!
Good information and positive reinforcement.
We love the Zoom Room. My puppy & I have learned so much. The Agility classes are very fun. We have learned to communicate and he performs so well with the tips & guidance from our trainer Stephanie.
If you don't know Tink loves the Zoom Room by now then I am doing something wrong! I love taking her and she loves going to class. She is generally a happy little Chihuahua anyways but she gets so excited and I love seeing her actually run around the course. She has always been a bit stand offish with with new dogs especially the ones that want to get in her face but I have noticed that going to the ZR has really helped her learn to cope with others dogs and to let them smell her. We love the Zoom Room!
David was great! He was easily able to handle a class of 8 dogs with very different temperaments without hindering one dog's experience. I found myself looking forward to classes - something I did not experience in Obedience 1 at another training facility. He assigned exercises to do as he went from dog to dog so as not to keep the rest of us idle as he gave individual attention. My dog had particular issue with separation anxiety and David scheduled a private lesson at a convenient time for me (yet inconvenient time for most people) so that we could work on that aspect of the CGC test. I'd highly recommend the class for those owners who want to ENJOY the obedience class experience, as your enjoyment of it will lead to a better experience for your dog too.
I love Zoom Room! I hike dogs for a living, but when it's raining, we'll go to Zoom Room, and run through basic agility courses!
Stephanie was so great... She made all the dogs feel at easy and definitely made agility into something fun, not work. It quickly became the high point of my week.
It was great. Very informative. She was great with the Sammy. Would love to take her home with me!
Lots of fun! Chelsea does an excellent job!
Fantastic! I love the entire team at Zoom Room Culver City! We just need to find more time in our schedules to continue training and expand on Kodiak's growing resume. :)
great teacher ... energetic, engaging and empowering.
Milo and I both had fun, even if it did mean getting up earlier on Sunday morning. We are hoping to join the upcoming Agility 1.
I enjoyed the classes and will definitely be back.
the instructors are very good and clearly care about dogs. my dog and i have really enjoyed all the classes we have taken so far. it's been a great experience!
We really enjoyed the Urban Herding class. It was great fun to watch our dog, Rocco, learning new skills and having fun!
It was great fun! Brody and I both learned a lot. He was a quick study, being a Corgi, and I was able to keep up. Megan was both positive and patient. I plan to continue with group lessons.
The classes were catered to each individual dog's level and David gave a personal touch to each dog. It was fabulous!
This class was a lot of fun. My dog has done private training, agility and a tricks class before, which were all great but he really liked this one because he is a scent hound and never has a chance to do that otherwise. Kris kept the class moving along and seems to have a really calm demeanor. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone!
We love it. Puppy Agility is so much fun. Winston loves coming to the Zoom Room.
ZOom Room is great! all the instructors are very patient and kind, but direct. Really appreciate them getting to know our pup and helping newbie owners.
Great class! I can't wait to take it again with Desi. He loves Zoom Room!
We had a great time and learned a lot about our new dog! David was really good with the dogs and definitely knows his stuff. We're looking forward to Agility!
We had a lot of fun at Agility 1 and look forward to future classes there!
Great class. Very patient instructors especially for the owners
Kris has done a fantastic job of working with us to get Jazmin up to speed for joining an internediate group class. He uses consistent guidelines, gentleness, and shares his AKC guideline knowledge in a positive manner.
I thoroughly enjoyed taking my dog Brooklyn to obedience classes at the Zoom Room. Brooklyn also enjoyed enjoyed her time there and Chris was a really amazing trainer. I learned a lot and am more confident now in my training going forward.
I had a great time at Zoom Room. I signed up for another class already!
It was great fun! Brody and I both learned a lot. He was a quick study, being a Corgi, and I was able to keep up. Megan was both positive and patient. I plan to continue with group lessons.
We both love it :)
We loved taking Dolly to Obedience classes at Zoom Room! The staff and trainers are very friendly, informative, and helpful. The classes were fun for both the people and the puppies! We will definitely utilize the zoom room again!
We hade loved Culver City for 1 & 1/2 years, five times a week, enjoying agility and obedience. It is our extended family. Sarah is terrific.
Sarah is the reason we go all the way to Culver City from Hollywood. Parking isn't great during the day, but we are there only for privates, so it works for us. Sarah is such a phenomenal trainer. I highly recommend her.
Meghan is a wonderful trainer. She has been very patient with me and Max and I greatly value her insight. She's always upbeat and happy to provide help and suggestions with any challenging issues I'm having.
We love you zoom room!
Loved our experiences at Zoom Room... both Agility 1 and Therapy Dog. I love it overall, thanks for having such a great facility!
Miso's behavior has improved incredibly since we have started training at Zoom Room. We have found that Agility is her (and our) favorite class! We love going to Zoom Room!!!!
Kimo had lots of fun!
Loved the class...thanks!
Agility one was the perfect intro to agility training. My dog and I connected on a different level then ever before and he learned some impressive things. I'm planning on doing agility training with my dog for many many years.
I recommend Zoom Room to everyone I see with a dog! We love it!
I like how Kris gives feedback on how the dog can improve with a change of cues on my part. He is good at picking up subtleties of the dog and human interaction.
Great experience - will recommend to my friends:)
Zoom Room rocks! This has been transformative for Kipu. I think she has great potential for so much. I wish I would be more consistent with her training at home. Thanks for being a great dogmeister.
Just amazing. Sarah is an amazing, intuitive trainer. She really takes time to understand what my goals are and develops a training plan to achieve goals. Gemma has made so much progress, and even reached the point where she's ready for Agility group classes! The facility is amazing, clean, vibrant, fun, and a great location.
Meghan is just great! She has a great demeanor and patience, not to mention skill with working with both dogs and humans. I'd recommend her to anyone I know who needs dog training.
My dog loves going to the Zoom Room. As soon as I make a turn onto Teale Street, she begins to get very excited! She also likes the instructor. David is very attentive to all of our dog's needs and helping each owner.
Fun, well paced, & instructive. The trainer was patient, clear & supportive of both the owners & dogs. Everyone seemed to make excellent progress & to enjoy the class.
Bhajan and I loved the pre-agility class. He is so pleased with himself when he learns something new and it's fun to watch him! We are registered to start with Agility 1.
Stephanie is a great teacher/trainer.. My Cooper is a little rambunctious.. Stephanie is very patient with my Cooper..
Cali and I had a great time in class. She was getting bratty at home, so I wanted to do something that would keep her attention and be new, but fun. This really did the "trick" (ha ha). Lots of fun- see you in Tricks 2.
I'm very glad we found Zoom Room. Hunter gets a great workout and I can see that, as a rescue, he feels a great sense of pride when we are proud of his accomplishments and I really feel like he is so much more confident and proud of himself since we've started classes. Now he does something that is uniquely for him (he has two doxie brothers at home) and it makes him feel special.
The Colonel and I LOVE our agility classes! I've seen the difference it's made in my dog's confidence, he's much more comfortable in his own skin now and he really enjoys all the courses, running, and jumping... I think he likes the challenge! It's been a good extra workout for me as well, you definitely need to keep up with your dog. I'm excited to keep him moving up and hopefully trying out a league one day! Stefanie is AMAZING... Her instruction, feedback, and corrections are always positive and easy to follow. I feel like I learn something each time and The Colonel loves her too! I'm also so glad there's a new cooling system in the facility! Overall it has been an awesome experience and I definitely plan to buy more classes so we can keep up on our training!!!
We plan to continue with agility. Thanks
Chris is the true dog whisperer ..and people whisperer too! His patience and kindness with Frankie and I has made a huge difference in our 'dog life' at home! A big change for a little dog who used to freak out on every walk!
We have had an amazing experience. Meghan was so helpful in training me to lead my dogs better and she gave me tools that i was able to implement straight away and see the difference.
great as always
Really love the indoor space, props, structure, and the great friendly instructors! Everything is clean and sanitary and a dedicated space, unlike some "schools" which hold classes in makeshift locations that aren't ideal. Zoom room is just for their classes. Everyone is super friendly!
I walked into the Zoom Room a first time dog owner, who only knew how to get my pup to sit (sometimes), and didn't have the slightest clue on why my 8 month old rescue (German Shepherd/Staffordshire mix) did or did not pay attention to me at ALL times. Dave is an excellent instructor. There was no doubt that he had the skills to get Kiko to follow his commands, but I think his patience with us (the individual dog owners in the class) is what speaks volume of his expertise training. Obedience 1 was an amazing experience. I signed up for the class thinking it was going to teach me how to get Kiko to sit, stay, and come. I walked away educated, equipped with the tools to continue training at home, but more importantly learned how to communicate with my best friend.
I have been happy with all of my classes
Stephanie was great!!!!!! We will definitely be back for more classes after the holidays! Nala has learned a lot and I have learned even more!
Zoom room is great! The obedience class is better than any obedience class or private trainer I have taken my dog. The skills they teacher are practical for day to day life, versus cheap parlor tricks. The agility has been a great to build my dog's confidence. Great way to get my dog around other dogs and people in a safe and fun setting.
We had great fun at this class. I tell all the other dog owners about JoJo's agility training and recommend Zoom Room. I guess its ok for a lab to do outdoor training, but JoJo ends up sopping wet in damp grass or filthy from the dirt if its dry. The indoor experience is far better. It also allows the dogs to have great concentration. We will continue to come back for classes.
Princess loved Agility 1 so much, that we're coming back for Agility 2...and hopefully, eventually be part of the competition team. We hear you have a 'Team Chihuahua' and Princess wants to become a part of that!
We started Cooper, my doxie, with the scent discrimination classes after his brother (an aussie mix) started taking agility. Although we take private scent classes, Cooper really seems to enjoy it. All my friends are now calling him our "FBI dog"!! Since we've had him, we've thought of Cooper as our "blondy" - he's a gorgeous English cream that gets a lot of attention but was never to quick to learn any tricks or commands (I've been trying to get him to shake for three years!). Then we discovered two things: one, he loves the Nina Ottosson puzzles and he solves them in record time, much faster than his two brothers, and two, he's a hunter. He has tracked and attacked an opposum and had a nasty fight with a squirrel in the backyard. So, when Kris told me about this class I thought it sounded perfect for him and it has been. We've done two of the private sessions so far and I've been amazed and what he's done and how smart he actually is. All this time, it turns out he just has no interest in tricks - he just wants to solve puzzles and track smells which is what this class allows him to do! We couldn't be happier!
We always have a great time
We like how Jamie showed a lot of patience with all the dogs and was very good at managing all the dogs at once in a calm manner. She was also great at working with the dogs on their different levels and kindly answering questions from the guardians. She seems to keep up-to-date on modern training techniques and knowledge. We really like the location of the Zoom Room; there is easy parking and its not a congested area. Also, the prices are great and reasonable at where they are now. We hope those don't change! We will probably take an agility class per her recommendation but have to double check our schedules but we really appreciate her reserving a spot for us a few days before the classes started.
Incredible!!!!' Staphanie is the best!!!!!!
We loved the class and learned so much. We can already see changes in ourselves and Riley. We can't wait for what's to come in Obedience 2.
Not only does my dog LOVE going to agility classes here, but I am learning how to handle my dog to do her best on any agility course. Without these classes she would not have gotten her Novice Agility Jumpers with Weaves(preferred) title in AKC!
Stephanie was our first contact with Zoom Room and she was very friendly and helpful. I liked the location and available times, too. She and Chris were patient with Billy and explained things well.
The class was great as always!!
Chopper and I love meghan. She is a great trainer, and is very patient with both dogs and people. We will continue to go to her class as long as it is offered.
David is an amazing instructor! He's firm but kind toward the dogs and always willing to listen and offer extra advice outside of the class. He is helpful with little tips to help us as owners train our dogs better. It's always a pleasure chatting with him and taking his classes.
Dave is kind, competent, generous and good at teaching. He seems to genuinely like dogs. He is patient and helpful with the slower learners without holding up the rest of the class.
I love both instructors I have had at the Zoom Room. My little Boston Terrier Brooklyn also enjoys going. She is doing so much better since I have had her in obedience training and I just enrolled in four more classes, so looking forward to my next session.
Had lots of fun, learned a lot and very professional. Can't wait for the next class to start.
meghan is a great instructor! i have had mixed experiences in the past with private training and couldn't be happier about finding meghan and zoomroom. My dog loves the training sessions and it is really helping with the behavior issues I have with him. we have also done some trick training, new commands and agility work - my dog loves it all and so do i!
Megan is fantastic! We have a very stubborn bulldog, Frank, and Megan has helped us make huge strides in his training. She has also introduced us to agility, and while Frank isn't the most athletic dog, he throughly enjoys the agility exercises. We have had a great experience with Megan and Zoom Room!
We love the Zoom Room! Everyone has always been so supportive of Bella. She now enjoys coming to see her friends.
Maurice looks forward to his Agility class every week. I'm very excited to have found something fun for me and my dog to do together!
JoJo and I always have fun at Zoom Room, and as a first time dog owner, I learn a lot. JoJo already knows everything.. ;)
Meaghan was and continues to be very understanding with my timid and unpredictable dog. Her homework lessons have helped us lots.
After a year off, Ripley and I decided it was time for her to get back into Agility. We worked with Chelsea to get Ripley over her issues with the dog-walk and Chelsea was amazing! We now alternate between Agility 3 and 4 and go at least once a week (schedule permitting).
Thank you Kris!!! Sierra and I think you are wonderful!
Our dog loves the Zoom Room!! Dave is an excellent instructor!!
I learned so much from Dave! lWhen I brought Benji in for an evaluation, he was very fearful and aggressive toward everyone there, but especially men. After 4 weeks of private training for Benji and I, he is much more relaxed and starting to trust others. He wouldn't walk on a leash and 4 weeks later we now take walks several times a day. We plan on taking more classes to help Benji and I learn even more.
Spectacular! Thank you guys for your dedication GOOD CARE INSTRUCTIONS and attention. Classes were very interesting!! The league on Thursday helped us a lot to evaluate our time. You know we have to travel , when we return we will be back in Zoom Room, having ZOOMING TIME. You are a good team!!
As the chair of a large division at a community college, I hire many teachers. David is a master, His instructions are clear, he is aware of every student, and he offers constructive suggestions in a friendly way. My dog Daniel and I are looking forward to more classes at the Zoom Room.
We have been coming to Zoom Room and working with Meghan for a little over three months and our dog Frank is much more obedient, fit and an all around happier dog. Meghan is fantastic and gives us techniques to work with our stubborn bulldog (who cannot eat any treats) that work really well. Frank loves the agility and I would have never thought he would be going through the weave polls and jumping over the triple jump! Meghan is incredibly patient with Frank and extremely innovative, coming up with great ways to overcome the challenge of not being able to use treats as an incentive. Meghan is a superlative trainer and we recommend coming to Zoom Room and working with Meghan to our friends. We could not be happier with our experience.
Terrific. Meghan is a great trainer. very patient, encouraging and knowledgeable we did three blocks of 4 sessions. Sydney and I both loved it but have to take a break now for my work travels.. the only suggestion for improvement that I would have is that the course be set when you arrive so that the full half hour can be used.
I think Kris is one of the most amazing agility teachers and dog trainers. He is patient, very clear, thorough, breaks down moves to digestible steps for the dogs, gives personal time. He is an A+ instructor. My sheppy also loves him very much.
Kris is a great instructor and he really has the patience and understanding to help both canine and human perform at their highest level! We look forward to more classes at the Zoom Room!
My doc loves to go to training, it's very positive and it is working.
We absolutely love the zoom room! Both Mila & Momo enjoy their classes greatly, and love their teachers! The staff is great, professional and very patient. They work exceptionally well with all the pups! Recently we booked a doggie birthday celebration for Momo and continued to be impressed with Zoom Room. The staff was very accommodating and helpful, before, during and after the event. We continue to look forward to bringing Mila & Momo around for more fun!
So great! Sarah is thoughtful, careful, and thorough. She really attends to Teddy and listens to our concerns, and lets me know when I am rightfully worried and when he's just being a dog. Sarah has helped me learn to be a better dog owner and has given me and Teddy tools for dealing with his anxiety.
Chowtz gets so excited when we arrive at zoom room - she knows it's the place where she gets lots of treats and head rubs. The instructors are great with Chowtz and knowledgeable about how to best instruct me to guide her. Though Chowtz is already 10, she has learned so much in A short 2.5 months - We have loved our 17 classes thus far at zoom room and are excited to start the therapy dog class next week. We have good days and more challenging days when we struggle but the instructors are always encouraging and patient. we trained at petsmart years ago but we are glad we found zoom room because we love their philosophy & approach and the culture of the organization. it's like being part of a family. They always have a great assortment of treats too. the Valentine's Day party was especially fun with all the food, gym equipment, paw paintings, and music. It was also a good way to help socialize my dog and have her practice some of the good mannered canine skills we've learned in class. Looking forward to the next party!
We learned a lot in just three weeks. I've noticed a real difference in Pixie's overall behavior. She seems happier and enjoys learning new things. We can't wait to start trying out all of the fun activity classes!
The private classes were great and allowed me the luxury of being able to tailor the training to Maddie's needs.
Laika and I have had a great time at Agility - I really like when the classes are small (up to 4 dogs) so that Laika gets a lot of practice (and she's a little impatient when she has to wait too long ;o). Can't wait for the next Agility class.
When I first took Brandy to class she was scared and very insecure. Now Brandy is playful and full of energy. Stephanie is a great trainer and has helped me bond even more with my baby girl! We are now in agility classes and are having a great time! Thank you, Zoom Room!
She is great-
AJ is just a super instructor......patient and very helpful with suggestions.
positively excellent. Instructor is clearly a pro, very patient and obviously loves what she's doing.
Meagan is fantastic, we couldn't be happier with our Zoom Room experience. Frank, our english bulldog, loves agility and Meagan!
Great fun and learning experience for my puppy and me. magen is great!!!
Thought the class was great.. looking forward to our next ! I thought it was fab all-around!
Meghan is an amazing trainer and my dogs love her! Meghan is the reason I go to the zoom room. My dogs are now better behaved and we have more fun together.
We really enjoyed it - as did Rufus. It was great to see Rufus behave in a room full of other dogs, and perform the various commands we learned. We have lots of practice, but this class and Kris gave us the confidence to keep at it.
Our 4th class and seeing much improvement. Megan is the best instructor!
Very appreciative of Kris' extension of Agilty 3 classes, enjoyed it immensely, agility courses well-planned, learned a lot about strategy from Kris, Zou Zou absolutely loved it, we looked forward to it every week, wonderful classmates too, hope to try Agility League. Thanks so much!
Dave Essex is great! The entire staff was very helpful and friendly. Kristopher Van Over was the first person we met and we loved him too. We expect to enroll in more classes with both instructors as they are very helpful, patient and really cared about our puppy, Penny.
Leash Walking Class was great! It really helped Barney and myself and we saw big improvements in just 3 weeks.
Juno has bonded well to Stephanie - which is great since she is a shy tentative dog with new humans. Stephanie's enthusiasm and positive feedback on how far Juno has come is so appreciated. i know it contributes to Juno's success thus far.
