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.
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.
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.
AJ is just a super instructor......patient and very helpful with suggestions.
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!
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.
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.
Cali would like to take scent class, but will have to wait until summer session!! She loves the Zoom Room!
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 !!
Cesar , Rosemarie & Dartagnan Scottish Terrier
My 2 Yorkshire Terriers had a Wonderful Time!
Great class - dogs got along well. A very good experience. Really like that it is indoor facility.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Although JoJo had already had an obedience class, I learned a lot. After all, JoJo doesn't need the training, I do. :=)
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!
positively excellent. Instructor is clearly a pro, very patient and obviously loves what she's doing.
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!
We plan to continue with agility. Thanks
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.
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!
The class was great as always!!
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.
Great experience, thanks Zoom Room!
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.
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!
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!
Leash Walking Class was great! It really helped Barney and myself and we saw big improvements in just 3 weeks.
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.
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.
We had a lot of fun at Agility 1 and look forward to future classes there!
We hade loved culver city for 1&1/2 years and until restructuring were there five times a week enjoying agility and obedience. It is our extended family. Sarah is terrific but Stretched so thin she cannot accommodate the upper level classes. So many of our old friends eould love to come back but there are not enough classes offered. I am having a party there with my dog and introducing her siblings to zoom room as they wish to be regular clients is More classes are offered for the working persons schedule. Every trainer in the past has been wonderful and caring. Please try to ramp culver up to its previous classes. I thank you for adding so much to our Lives. We have met wonder two and four legged friends there. Barbara
Meagan is fantastic, we couldn't be happier with our Zoom Room experience. Frank, our english bulldog, loves agility and Meagan!
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.
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. As for the new website design - not good. I don't like not being able to see who is teaching what class, and the site itself is cumbersome and not intuitive, not user friendly.
Good information and positive reinforcement.
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!
We both love it :)
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!
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.
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!
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 look forward to the possibility of another agility 2 or 3 on a Tuesday in the future. We love you!
Great experience - will recommend to my friends:)
Loved our experiences at Zoom Room... both Agility 1 and Therapy Dog. I love it overall, thanks for having such a great facility!
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!
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!
JoJo and I always have fun at Zoom Room, and as a first time dog owner, I learn a lot. JoJo already knows everything.. ;)
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!
I had a great time at Zoom Room. I signed up for another class already!
We really enjoyed the Urban Herding class. It was great fun to watch our dog, Rocco, learning new skills and having fun!
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.
Thought the class was great.. looking forward to our next ! I thought it was fab all-around!
Loved it. Tons of personal attention, lots of help, no judgement, explanations clear and easy to follow.
Incredible!!!!' Staphanie is the best!!!!!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
This has been a positive experience. Nova really enjoys her training.
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.
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.
Stephanie is great. Abby and I think she is so kind patient warm and caring. We are both learning soooo much
We had a great time with agility and will continue - maybe take agility 3 again or league or just pratice.
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!
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.
My doc loves to go to training, it's very positive and it is working.
She is great-
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 the Juno's success thus far.
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.
Kimo had lots of fun!
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.
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!
Looking forward to taking another class soon! David was really great with Frisbee, esp since she is a bit shy. He was very patient :)
We love Zoom Room!
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!!
I have been happy with all of my classes
David is terrific with my shy dog and my 16 year old daughter who is the handler.
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.
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.
Our dog loves the Zoom Room!! Dave is an excellent instructor!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
The classes were catered to each individual dog's level and David gave a personal touch to each dog. It was fabulous!
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!
Had lots of fun, learned a lot and very professional. Can't wait for the next class to start.
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!
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.
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.
Great class. Very patient instructors especially for the owners
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.
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. :)
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 always have a great time
I really enjoyed the experience and will be in touch about signing up for the next session of obedience 1.
The private classes were great and allowed me the luxury of being able to tailor the training to Maddie's needs.
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.
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!
Zou Zou loves it! NIce equipment, small classes, great instructor
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.
Sarah is terrific with th dogs and people as well. Kind understanding effecient and keeps classes fun. Over last 1 1/2 yrs Meghan McLeod was our trainer. So sad to see her leave culver city location. She offered expert training at times most people could attend such as weekends and later evenings. Plus agility 4 and obedience 3 and tricks class. Her success is her very special caring for our animals and Their owners combined with her great training using different methods to help with each dog who required a different approach. Sure wish you could return her back home to culver city. Please consider since sherman oaks location is under corporate again.
Love working with you, thanks!
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.
Stephanie makes it a wonderful experience for ALL. She has a great way with the animals & teaching the owners how to work with them....
Steph is the best. Really great instructor.
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 learn a lot but I find we repeat the same stuff in our classes since there's new people in each class. I get important new stuff by asking Stephanie which is valuable. We have a smart dog that trains quickly so it would be nice to keep advancing him. So it feels to me the last 2 classes were not worth our time and makes me not want to sign up for another class unless I know what we are going to cover ahead of time. Stephanie is great! She's knowledgeable and can deal with a wide variety types of owners.
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 so glad there's a new cooling system in the facility...there have been some miserably HOT days, so THANKS for the reprieve!!! I wish there were more class offerings during week days, I work evenings so my only option left is Saturday, since my Sundays tend to be busy too. I also wish that on Saturday there could be an earlier level 3 class, 2:00 has been tough to make with it landing right in the middle of a Saturday afternoon, mornings would be much more convenient! It would also be good to be able to know in advance when our usual instructor won't be teaching... It makes a big difference in the type of class experience we've had! Overall it has been an awesome experience and I definitely plan to buy more classes so we can keep up on our training!!!
Dave is a great teacher and our dog has so much fun....the agility classes are a great way to bond with your dog!!
This is a great experience and opportunity to bond with your best friend. I'm telling everyone about it! Dave is terrific!
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.
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.
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!
It was great. Very informative. She was great with the Sammy. Would love to take her home with me!
We love the Zoom Room! Everyone has always been so supportive of Bella. She now enjoys coming to see her friends.
Our class had such a great vibe - dogs all got along great and were of same temperament, which made for terrific class.
I attended one group class and one private.. Excellent experience all around. With my difficult dog I was given hope..
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!
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!
I enjoyed the classes and will definitely be back.
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!
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.
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.
I think 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!
The class almost needed to be longer than 6 weeks because there were games we played on the last day that we'd never played before. Now I'm not sure what to do since there's isn't a urban herding 2 class - I'd hate for all that practicing to go to waste!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We love it. Puppy Agility is so much fun. Winston loves coming to the Zoom Room.
The training was positive but play time was overwhelming for little Jesse. She is only 11 weeks old and hid in the corner. I would love for her to play with other little puppies and feel more confident, less intimidated. Could there be a partition for the younger/smaller ones next class?
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.
Our 4th class and seeing much improvement. Megan is the best instructor!
I recommend Zoom Room to everyone I see with a dog! We love it!
The class was great, learned new handling techniques and there were only 2 of us, so we really reviewed several obstacles a lot.
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!
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.
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 love you 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Thank you Kris!!! Sierra and I think you are wonderful!
Great class! I can't wait to take it again with Desi. He loves Zoom Room!
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.
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.
Stephanie is a great teacher/trainer.. My Cooper is a little rambunctious.. Stephanie is very patient with my Cooper..
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!
Loved the class...thanks!
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. I think iris was the other one - only took her once but she was also excellent. Biggest issue is with your website - now you can't tell who is teaching what class. It's difficult to use. I tried to buy the monthly unlimited and it's like it submitted but didn't submit. It seems to have a lot of issues now. It looks better that the old site, but the reservation system is messed up now.
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.
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.

The Bean Bag game in Obedience 2 was so much fun! Dogs were in a Down Stay position while their owners retrieved bean bags. The team with the most bean bags won.
