great instructor. good re-introduction to agility for my dog, who has not trained in 7 months.
Teddy and I both loved it. Teddy is a 2 year old male neutered Boxer adopted from the shelter as a puppy. He enjoys spending time in the gym, interacting with other people and pets. He has a good mind and a surprisingly calm demeanor, although his calmness may be due to all his exercise. Teddy has enjoyed learning to focus and concentrate. The class has helped him be a wonderful dog.
Lady came through Collie Rescue and in less than two weeks, found herself in Obedience 1 with her new mom at the Zoom Room Monterey. She had a wonderful experience in Obedience and loved all the yummy treats! She enjoys her time at the Zoom Room and has asked to go back so that Mom can learn more ways to communicate with her.
Ratna is a wonderful trainer, great with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds --- and their people, too.
Misty and I are having a great time and she is building her confidence around other dogs with each visit.
Participating in private training for agility 2 was great, because we could move at Tucker's pace, and I got plenty of people training too (my handling is usually the weak link in completing a series of obstacles). Overall it was a great experience, complemented by our participation in the weekly agility league. We are returning to a classroom group for Agility 3 on Monday, and very much looking forward to it.
Sunshine loves ZoomRoom! In just six months she has learned to sit, stay, come, walk without pulling on her leash, stay on a mat in a public place, not jump up on people, and more. She has also really taken off in Agility and is now learning more advanced maneuvers to include completing a course with up to seven obstacles. Zoom Room is fun for both of us and everyone tells me what a well behaved dog I have! I highly recommend bringing your furry friend in for a class or two, you won't regret it and they will have a blast!
When I "rescued" Red at 11 months of age, it was clear that he knew very little about how to behave in a civilized household. We started classes at the Zoom Room right away. In one year we have completed Obedience 1, 2, & 3, Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog, Tricks 1, Agility 1, & 2. The classes have given Red the structure he needed to become the happy, confident, well-behaved dog he is today. Big thanks to Ratna, and all her staff at the Zoom Room Monterey Bay!
Well besides my frenchie having a major crush in his trainer Mandy. We LOVED the class!!! She is a doll. Couldn't ask for a better instructor.
Zoom Room has been great for us and Sachi!
I found out about Zoom Room through my vet and from the very first phone conversation I knew that this was a caring, loving place to help me teach my new puppy.
Lucy was only 8 weeks old when we started puppy socialization and she and I have met many other wonderful dogs and their owners each week and we look forward to seeing everyone and watching them grow and learn.
Lucy and I also have also had private instruction with Ratna and I find that whenever I have a problem I can call or email and I will get the advice I need to help us get through a certain stage in Lucy's growth.
I will continue to bring Lucy to classes and feel we are so blessed to have the Zoom Room in our area. Zoom Room is so much fun, and having a happy, well behaved pit bull terrier puppy makes me one proud momma.
Teddy loves going to the zoom room. It is always a tail wagging experience!
I have been attending classes at the Zoom Room Monterey Bay since opening day. My three dogs have been through almost all the classes offered and we give our 5 star recommendation to Ratna and her staff. This has been our best dog training experience ever! My toy Aussie girls and I give our two hands and 12 paws up for a wonderful dog training experience!
We had a Wonderful experience at the Zoom Room. Mandy was amazing at explaining the material in a way that was relevant to me and my dog in our every day life. Ru was less than well behaved when we started and thanks to our wonderful trainer I know I now have the skills to make her the great dog I know she can be. I am so pleased and we cant wait for our next class.
Wonderful. Knowledgeable instructor, patient and encouraging
great to learn how to communicate with our puppy. she enjoys repeating the commands what we learned at the classes. her favorit one is "touch!". :-)
The place is clean, comfortable and a great atmosphere for learning. Its really about the people learning as much as the dogs. Its definitely made a difference in our dog - at this stage of development we can't have too much training or socialization.
She is awesome! Good teaching. I have recommended Zoom Room to every dog owner I know. People comment on how well behaved my wiggly Coton is.
We had a lot of fun in class. Both of us learned new things. Scooby Doo even made a few friends in class. He really likes the A frame. I plan on enrolling him in obedience 2 class in the near future.
Absolutely loved the class and the one private class we had. I wish I had come here for obedience. Sad we are moving. Would totally recommend the Zoom Room.
Great chance to socialize and learn about puppy behavior. Loved the support printouts and recommendations on good products to use.
Location, facility, training were excellent, suggestions to guide owners very helpful, trainer was patient in working with clients and pets. Look forward to future sessions.
So much fun! I laugh and learn a lot each week, and Bella loves it, too!
I've had a great experience here at the zoom room. I have learned a lot and so has my puppy.
I adopted a 3-4 year old dog that hadn't been leash trained or house broken. My vet recommended the Zoom Room and we got some basics down immediately. Ratna was very thorough, informative and patient with us. Fortunately, the dog turned out to be smarter than me so she learned very quickly and we now walk a lot relatively painlessly, play off leash in dog parks and she comes when I call - at least by the second time. The Zoom Room was a life saver for both of us.
We have had a lot of fun at the Zoom room. Ratna really knows what she is doing and how to tailor the training to each individual dog. She has so much patience. Both of my dogs, Rio and Champion, have come a long way in her classes. Every week we look forward to going to class. My dogs are so excited to work and our relationship has become so much better. I would highly recommend the the Zoom room for anyone and everyone with a dog, no matter the dog. They will work with you to help you understand your dog better and to make your dog an even more important part of your family.
I totally enjoyed classes as did Waldo. The socializing has made him wonderful with other dogs. He's careful how he greets and plays. He LOVes!!!! The agility classes for he can be off leash and is still attentive to the tasks at hand. Wonderful experience for both of us. Knowledgeable instructors are great!
Our experiences at the Zoom Room Monterey bay have been fantastic. The staff at the Monterey Bay ZR has created a very positive atmosphere for their clients. Their training is top notch! Ratna and her staff do a great job of getting to know their students and their parents. They are constantly looking for the best ways to help all of us reach our full potential. Thereby, creating strong bonds between us and our fur babies. We would follow Ratna and her staff anywhere!
We are still enjoying the experience at the Zoom Room and the agility class. It's a lot of fun for both dog and owner. Rudy is improving each week.
Asia is a shy dog, but she enjoys her Zoom Room time.
We have had such a great experience with all of the instructors. They have all been very accommodating and helpful with Goose's special needs.
After a few obedience classes at the zoom room I now have a well behaved dog! It's made such a huge difference.
We have really enjoyed all of our experiences and teachers! Group training sessions have been excellent, especially puppy obedience, but we were amazed at what a difference the private training sessions made. They are well worth the cost especially if you have a puppy or dog (or person!) that needs accelerated learning. My only negative feedback (very minor) would be that obedience 1 lessons seem virtually identical to puppy obedience. So if a puppy has successfully completed puppy obedience, IMHO, that puppy could jump to obedience 2. But all learning is good learning, so not a big deal. Thanks Zoom room!
Katie exhibits great enthusiasm and makes the classes fun for both the dogs and the handlers.
Great training and excellent socialization for our dog :0)
I've already taken three classes at Zoom Room Monterey and am starting the fourth today. I have already recommended Ratna to several friends. She's great, very patient and fun!
The Zoom Room hss been a fabulous additon to Monterey Peninsula. The Zoom Room offers such a wide variety of classes and times so it is very easy to locate a class that fits my Mom's schedule. The instruction is excellent. Even though I don't always pay attention and would rather search for treats on the floor, I have tons of fun and have made so many new dog and peopel friends! Ratna is the best!!
Ratna was very accommodating to my special needs dog. She was patient and understanding. Winter made great progress in her obedience and we couldn't be more pleased!
Love the zoom room!! They are extremely helpful and eve come w long way in the year we have been customers! Would highly recommend!!
The Monterey Bay Zoom Room has been such a treasure of knowledge and assistance! We decided to sign up immediately after getting our new puppy. Every week we looked forward to socializing our puppy. Ratna and her staff are so knowledgeable and helpful, even when it's chaotically busy! The structure of the classes are perfect! I enjoy the helpful attention we get during every class. All of our questions are answered and all of our concerns are heard. We love the Monterey Bay Zoom Room!
Experience was great! instructor was very knowledgable and helpful
This has been a great experience for me and my dog.
Great class! Scooby learned so much in Obedience 2. We are on to Therapy Dog class next :)
We've been attending agility training regularly for over two years, and we love it. mojo learns focus and discipline and gets his "yayas" out at the same time. It's great fun for both of us. Ratna is an excellent trainer.
Ratna is a great instructor! She is very patient with our young Airedale (and us).
Ratna is the absolute best, she helped Harvey to be comfortable around strangers and to be a gentleman on his leash. Harvey and I both loved going to the zoom room, its so much fun for the pups and their people alike!
Both classes were and have been a joy. We are on the track to have Oso certified as a therapy dog and we have learned some great tips and tricks along the way. The staff are welcoming and knowledgable.
Great class. Mandy and Katie did a nice job teaching us how to work with our dogs. I've learned a lot and my 7mth old Laborador is catching on too!
We had fun in this class.
We loved the class and will definitely be back for more classes. Thanks for coming to our area!
When you first walk in the Zoom Room it's safe and clean set-up for the dogs. I think it's a great facility. From the first class we learned and did so much. Ratna is a great instructor always having Williams best interest in mind. We look forward to each fun filled class.
Jolly Mon and I have a great time. If we didn't we wouldn't have taken every applicable class and attended every meet-up we possibly could - Obedience 2, CGC, Nose Work, Loose Leash Walking, Agility 4 weekly for almost two years, Tricks, Rally, private training, open gym, Jolly's birthday party, meet-ups. :-)
This is a wonderful program. Ratna is very patient with both her two legged and four legged students.
Ratna is an excellent trainer. She is knowledgeable and patient. Mojo has been attending obedience and agility classes at the Zoom Room since he was a young puppy. He is a very high-energy dog, and these classes have helped channel some of that extra energy immensely.
GREAT TEACHER, OLIVER WAS A RESCUE DOG AND HAD MANY ISSUES AND THE OWNER WORKED WITH MY WIFE AND OLIVER [PRIVATE LESSONS] AND WHAT A DIFFERENCE . THANKS ZOOM ROOM
We loved the obedience class. We have noticed a nice difference in our dog's behavior. She seems really ready to follow instructions now that she gets we expect things out of her. She is always eager to please us so that coupled with the training Ratna gave us has been great. Thanks again. So glad you are in the community.
Great! Ratna is very knowlegable and quick to the moment.
We both had so much fun. I could not believe how much Dot learned. It was amazing! We are both sorry it ended but are signing up for another class....I had no idea how smart Dottie is....
Mandy is a wonderful instructor and Daisy and I had a very good time and learned a lot! I plan to take another class this summer with my other dog, Sam.
The teachers are knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. I have seen them working with all types of dogs and all levels of owners. It is convenient to have the range of classes available so nearby.
Mojo loves going to the Zoom Room for his agility classes. He is a very high energy dog, and participating in agility training helps him use some of that energy while learning to focus on my commands. He still has a lot of puppy in him and has a ways to go, so attending these classes is quite beneficial.
I have been attending over 2 1/2 years and have had a great time with my dog. Ratna is a wonderful trainer, and I have met so many nice people there.
I had a very good experience in this class. It was totally laid back and fun. George is a good citizen thanks to the zoom room!
This is one of the best experiences my dog Bear and I have had together. I work with elderly patients in nursing homes and hospitals, and I've seen the impact that therapy dogs have on their moods and overall health. One night recently I was having dinner next door to the Zoom Room at Il Vecchio and saw a training class through the window. I decided to sign Bear up on the spot. What a wonderful decision! The Therapy Training class was comprehensive and very fun (for both the dogs and their owners). By the time the official test came - administered by Therapy Dog International - Bear was definitely prepared.
Ratna is an EXCELLENT instructor, and the entire staff at the Zoom Room is friendly and incredibly professional. The facility is clean and there is lots of parking available. I would HIGHLY recommend the Zoom Room to everyone thinking about taking a class with their dog.
Fabulous classes! Reggie and I learned so much! In those two classes he became an easy companion. Truly sensible obedience!
Great pace of learning the different commands and agility spot/tasks
We were challenged and cheered on weekly on our way to the TDI evaluation. I am so excited to have passed on our first try - all because of the Zoom Room! Bella and I both look forward to our Zoom Room classes and the fun but focused training we receive. Can't wait for Tricks and Rally!
Both Trapper and I enjoy the atmosphere that the zoom room monterey provides. we have taken a couple of the workshops and drop in classes. but our focus has been the agility. both of us truly do enjoy it. While we will never truly compete outside of the zr leagues, it has been a great bonding opportunity for trapper and me. Additionally, we have made some new friends.
it is a very friendly, informative, and above all straightforward learning environment at the zoom room, and that's exactly what we were looking for!
Jolly Mon's boarder is amazed at how much Jolly's behavior has improved since his last boarding experience. The first time Jolly was very stressed and barked constantly. He had an overnight test last night for his Christmas boarding and was "splendid." Joel asked what I did with the original Jolly Mon. I attribute this change totally to Jolly's experiences at Monterey Bay Zoom Room, esp. the meetups.
Cricket and I have enjoyed the training at the Zoom room since she was a puppy.This is where she qualified for a therapy dog, first did agility and was introduced to Rally O. We both learned alot.The staff have been patient and knowledgable.
We love the knowledge and passion of the entire staff. It is a fun and open environment that encourages both owner and pet to have fun and learn together!
We love Ratna! She has helped make Scooby the dog he is today :)
My dog and I have thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Zoom Room in Monterey, Ca. The staff is knowledgeable, patient and courteous. Mandy Carswell has a great attitude and is able to teach, give training advice, and encourage both dog and handler to perform. She has a calm and caring demeanor which I have also found to be true of all the other staff I have encountered there. I highly recommend the Zoom Room in Monterey.
Has been very helpful, and the instructors are very knowledgeable and control the classes well.
The Zoom Room is such a wonderful addition to the Monterey Peninsula. I like the gradual exposure to all of the agility obstacles. They are presented without pressure to perform, which makes the sessions both challenging and fun for the dog and handler.
Love the zoom room! Always learn new things even in the same class. Everyone there is very friendly and helpful and my dog loves his time there.
She did a great job of running the class very knowledgeable and interactive,great tips and experience for myself and my puppy.
Great classes, would prefer to see more options for Agility 2 on weekends.
I've taken probably 8-10 different classes with both dogs. They both even have CGC and therapy dog certificates just to name a few.
we have had numerous instructors with positive experiences from each one. our puppy is progressing nicely and we are having lots of fun!
These classes were great for us! I learned many good tips that made me a more confident pet owner and my dog a better behaved pup. I also learned more of what my dog is capable of and we deepened our connection through this experience. Thank you.
Buddy Om and I learned so much in 6 weeks. We enjoyed all the dog games; as they were very creative and extremely fun. The staff is great, the Zoom Room space is clean and equipped. Our experience was well worth the time! Thank you so much.
One more comment...... We do often recommend Zoom Room and will continue to do so. So glad we have this business available in our community. Loads of fun for our furry friends and loved ones.
We are having a ball and bonding and learning so much, Fun, fun, fun! It's so good for all of us and we look forward to pur classes every week!
Both our dogs were enrolled and both had a fabulous experience. Ratna is a natural trainer!
It was very positive, informative and fun.
It's a very well structured class. Ratna is aware of all the dogs issues and personalities as well as the handlers. She conducts her class accordingly. I've enjoyed the classes and the progress we have made.
Fabulous...love going to classes...great experience; individual sessions are also quite valuable. Ratna and Katie are the best!! Thanks for being there for us and having an environment that our dog, Bear, loves. His happiness and joy when he sees his teachers or when we turn the corner coming toward Zoom Room...is quite amazing. He loves his classes and his teachers. And he is passionate about agility. I tell everyone about this amazing approach to training.
You're the best! Schroeder is doing so great now that he's back at Zoom Room. Through the training, my little frightened boy has gained such confidence. His behavior has improved immensely!
Very good instructor - really helped me in my pursuit of having a well trained dog . Very informative and great to work with .
Our experience at zoom room has been the best bonding experience for me and my Queensland Heeler, Jack!! He and I have learned so many vaulable obeidance tricks. He now stays, comes, sits, shakes paws, lays down and can run their agility corse!! We are currently moving on to agility 2. Thank you so much! Jack & casey
I have trained with ratina and Mandy. Love them both. I like how Fun and relax yet excellent traing. Eloise and I both look forward to it every week. Wouldn't go anyplace else. Thank you for coming to Monterey . Katie
Great! Loved all the staff. Excellent preparation.
Amy and I loved the class. Mandy is patient with my friendly but very energetic dog. She always answers questions or gives suggestions for improvement in a clear and helpful way. She is always positive in her approach to all the dogs.
Awesome! Sunny loves going to Zoom Room and she has been learning so fast - we both have fun every time we go!
We have had a wonderful experience. Ratana has been a great instructor, taking the time to provide feedback that is appropriate given our dog's behaviors. Classes are fun and instructive.
We love zoom room!
Very pleased with the progress we've made with Kona at the zoom room!!
The sessions were insightful and very helpful, as well as empowering for us to be more consistent in training our dog (and ourselves :))!
Penny and I had a really great experience. Our trainer was patient, observant and thorough. She provided excellent training techniques and tools and I am very pleased with the overall result. Penny is much better behaved and so much easier to handle now - as a puppy, she tends to be exuberant and curious. Zoom Room has helped me learn how to be a better owner and companion for my precious little Penny. Thank you Zoom Room
Ziva loved the classes and I enjoyed the energy and class instruction. We would like to go on to Agility 3 but Ziva is a GSD and does not like tiny dogs that bark so off-leash is not an option until she matures a little.
It was great! Very informative and good exercise and socialization for the pups!
I love going there and working with my dog. The environment is excellent! Mandy was very very nice! Thank you so much for making me have an amazing experience! I loved the certificate that Buster got. Mandy has really improved Buster's Agility.
I have taken several classes from puppy training to obedience at several different locations. I can honestly say that my experience at Zoom Room Monterey Bay has far surpassed all of the other classes! My dog has learned a lot, I have learned a lot, we've both had fun, and we've both made new friends. Zoom Room Monterey Bay is professional, clean, organized, positive, and overall the best! My dog agrees and even sits eagerly by the door when we mention going to go see Ratna! I highly recommend the Zoom Room Monterey Bay!
It has been an enriching and exciting experience for both dog and owner. Agility training really helps satisfy Satchmo's need to have some sort of mental stimulation and the staff at ZR does a great job. Thank you!
Wonderful! Thoroughly enjoy our time there and feel as though it has certainly helped Brooklyn's socialization skills.
It was great! We had a lot of fun. I liked the teaching style and explanations about the agility training.
Great...great instructors. They are very good.
Have very energetic puppy who has developed much further than expected
Our experience was excellent. There were big changes in Jacks behavior after four 30 min sessions. Of course, changes have to be reinforced.
Loved the classes and the trainers! They were sensitive and full of ideas for helping me manage my dog's reactions to other dogs. He has really improved from when we first started!
I had a really great time! I've told lots of people and I'm sure some will partake. Thank you!
I have been told, you have the best well behaved dog. Whatever you are doing keep doing it. You are a good dog owner. It's all because of Zoom Room. THe classes have the best advise for training your puppy/dog. the lessons are great, you take home good knowledge to keep and use everyday with your dog. Aurora was recently spayed and i was told she was completely obedient and did everything asked. sit, stay, went into the cage as if it was her crate, and stayed when asked, waited when putting on the cone and leash for a walk. aurora loves going to classes and we will continue classes.
My dog Kona and I have loved these classes. She gets excited about going to them. This was the perfect experience for my dog, an active Aussie.
We always find our visits to be informative and fun.
Always awesome experience! I am constantly amazed with pepper's advancements and the education we are receiving about dog behavior
We live coming. u hope to continue if u can afford it. We love our teacher.
We have learned so much about puppy training. Mandie is an excellent instructor and I have total faith in everything she is teaching us about raising well trained puppy. She makes the classes fun but knowledgeable. We enjoying spending our Tuesday nights with the Zoom Room team. I think Gretchen really likes her too!
We love the Zoom Room and have been attending for eight months now. Sunshine has completed her Canine Good Citizen certificate and is working towards her therapy dog certification but her favorite class is agility! Zoom room training has been fun for us both and I'm always very happy when we are out and she is complimented on her good behavior and how well she interacts with people, small children and other dogs and animals. I highly recommend the Zoom Room team. They will help you better understand your dog and have fun in the process!
My Cocker puppy "Kailer" is very energetic and needs an outlet. I wish Zoom Room had been around decades ago for all my other pups. Ratna gave me all the info I needed to be more effective in my consistency and training with my new puppy. At about 3 months of age, Kailer was doing ALL the agility props. which is great for his confidence. He is really becoming more focused too which is important to do at an early age.
We've enjoyed our experience tremndously. Our puppy was about 12 weeks old when we began and shes steadly making wonderful progress. Our goal is to ge the therapy dog certification.
I highly recommend this class and have to give the highest praise to Ratna, who encouraged Skoshi and I, and mentored us through some problem areas we experienced along the way. I have attended classes with Ratna with my 4 dogs since the Zoom Room Monterey Bay opened. I have been to many other training classes in this area, and the Zoom Room blows them all away for positive training methods and amazing results achieved.
Excellent. Mojo loves the activity and getting to be around other dogs.
Zoom Room has been wonderful for our puppy as well as for us as owners. Our puppy has learned a lot and we have also. We have taken the tools learned from class and applied them to training our dog at home.
Beau and I really had a great time, I have been telling all our friends about it.
Good basic info to get your dog to "come". We aren't quite there yet after 3 sessions. Ella is still distracted by other dogs, especially moving Dogs. I think continual practice will help.
Amazing results with obedience classes for my reactive pitbull puppy. Agility has been just as amazing and soooo much fun!
Chap loves his Zoom Room classes; he's done Agility 1, and he just completed Obedience 2. Zoom Room personnel are careful about the dogs that they accept for group classes, and so training is an enjoyable experience for both the dog and the owner.
Fun and informative classes with caring and professional trainers. Both Amber and I learned a lot.
oliver is a large 95lbs. lab. we rescued him two days before he was to be put down, his age was about 13 months. he had been on the run for over 6 months. he was scared, would run away from you, would not look at you, and on a leash he would drag you around. it was like trying to control a young horse. but in his heart he is a lab. loving, friendly, loves other dogs and really nosey. we could not leave him alone because he would do the lab thing [eat the house] so we went to the zoom room and after 4 private lessons we now have oliver the giant teddy bear. ratna taught us how to control the beast, get him to make eye contact, and all the other things that they teach young dogs. oliver is a work in progress and we will continue the classes with him untill he becomes the pussy cat that is in him. ratna taught us a lot not to break his spirit, let him be a puppy [but one that listens and obeys] thank you zoom room we know he was and is a hand full. one thing we will never give up on him.proud parents of a rescue dog. jim and aida cook
Ratna and the entire staff at the Zoom Room Monterey Bay have been such a God send. From the first class of Obedience 1 I knew that Jax and I were in the perfect place for us. Ratna is so knowledgeable and patient, I'm pretty sure Jax likes her more than I. He has shown such great improvement over the past few months we have been attending classes, I'm excited to watch his continous growth.
I loved all of the trainers and the great learning experience!
Great class! I already have more confidence in Caleb's recall skills and know they will continue to strengthen with practice.
It was a wonderful experience for Cami and I. We learned a lot and Cami is a happier dog for the training
Great class! My dog loved the learning experience and time with other nice dogs, and the teacher provided a gold mine of dog training and behavioral tips. My dog loved the class so much, he was excited to go back. Even fun for we dog parents!
Ratna is excellent has a great understanding of canine behavior and training. Her classes are well controlled no matter how many dogs are present. I highly recommend any new dog owner or owner who wants a well behaved dog to work with zoom room. They also have great agility classes that are a fun way to play and bond with your pup
We have had many great experiences. The training is very supportive of us and our dogs. They offer clear explanations, careful observations of us and our dogs followed up with good strategies to solve problems and help our dogs learn.
It was so much fun. Jolly Mon and I learned a lot, which we are incorporating into our dance routine.
Really enjoyed Andrea in Obedience 1. Learned a lot from Andrea in the 4 classes that Rusty & I had with andrea. Then Rusty & I changed over to 4 private Lessons with Ratna. Rusty was aggressive with other dogs and movement really set him off..i.e. running, bike riding, etc. Working with Ratna was such a blessing & Each session Rusty improved. to the point he didn't react to the window washer and a gentleman came in to see Ratna and Rusty didn't bark at him, in fact, Rusty walked over to the man with his tail wagging and allow the fellow to pet him. Ratna, thankyou so much for the tools you gave me to work with rusty. How fortunate our town is to have Zoom Room and such excellent trainers.
We had a great time, Everyone at Zoom Room Monterey is very friendly and so Good with all the dogs.
very good /had a grate time
The class was great, this is our first dog & I really learned a lot. Very informative.
Already have recommended it! I loved this class and have seen huge improvement in my 7-year-old dog. We took another class early on with the Kennel club that used choker collars instead of clickers and treats and it was not as easy and effective. We didn't even graduate! Ratna was wonderful and welcoming to my 3-yr-old daughter who "helped" me train. I felt so comfortable. I can't say enough good things.
Katie is a great instructor. She is always well prepared and remembers where we are in our learning. she sets up a challenging and fun learning experience for us and ensures we have a very supportive learning environment.
Consistently good. Very attentive to the well being and behavior of my dog.
Thank you Ratna and Maria. I always enjoy the classes. Thank you for all your help with Harley.
This class has been so helpful in keeping my dog close by and she is more than eager to stay by my side so she can be rewarded with a treat. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I highly recommend this class to anyone with a dog of any age that needs a little behavior training.
These classes have been EXTREMELY helpful getting Riley off to a great start in life. He behaves pretty well for a pup his age thanks to Ratna's ongoing and excellent instruction.
Our puppy learned a lot. He's still a little young and full of energy so I think we'll try to get him into some agility classes next.
My dog Shasta and I enjoyed the experience. The trainer really listened to the issues I was experiencing and gave me practical tips to try. Mandy interacted well with all the owners and dogs and seemed to enjoy her work which is important. Shasta and I will be back to take another class.
My dog loves Zoom Room. It has also helped in discipline at home.
We did a short video via iPhone while Kendall was doing her last session run and I sent it to three of my girlfriends who have pups who love to jump. It was amazingly fun for me and for Kendall and I hope to have her pup friends join us for another session of agility! Thanks so very much!
Ratna is excellent has a great understanding of canine behavior and training. Her classes are well controlled no matter how many dogs are present. I highly recommend any new dog owner or owner who wants a well behaved dog to work with zoom room. They also have great agility classes that are a fun way to play and bond with your pup
Tucker LOVES doing agility, and it comes naturally to him! I am soooooo glad his first introduction to agility coursework was in the friendly, clean, and consistent training environment provided by the Zoom Room. Thanks Ratna!
Ratna has been fantastic! She is so patient and loving. I have been bringing my 3 dogs for private training/play time since you opened in Monterey and will continue to do so. I am hoping to be able to do group classes in the near future, as our schedule permits. The facility is always spotless and bright, and my dogs and I feel very safe there. We love the Zoom Room!
We have been to many classes and have taken away new knowledge each time. Instructors are extremely patient.
We enjoy the zoom room personel, class format and choices of classes.
Cricket is learning quickly, and remain challenged to learn more. Even though it is an 45min drive the zoom room in PG is in a graet location, with a rec trail nearby and dog friendly businesses.
It was wonderful! Rufus learned a lot. The instructor was patient and considerate. Thorough instruction and good to Rufus.
This is Rufus' 3rd series of training at the Zoom Room. He went to Obedience 1& 2 as well as Therapy dog training. It's fun for all of us.
We all love Ratna! She is patient, understanding, and always positive. Ratna's instruction and care over the past 6 weeks has helped us set a great foundation for Koda and the rest of his life. We can't imagine our lives without the Zoom Room!
Wonderful!! Great experience for the both of us :)
Maya loves coming to the Zoom Room! From the moment we pull up in the car, she is full of excitement and eager to get started. The agility exercises that Ratna sets up for Maya have been very helpful with her obedience training all while having fun at the same time! We will definitely continue to attend classes at the Zoom Room!
Enjoying it. Getting a lot of good info and good practice in obedience for the puppy.
It has been so good to see Maddy learn. Ratna is wonderful with her and we are coming back for more starting Sat. April 4. See you then.
We loved our class. We met so many new friends and even had a friend to practice with for open gyms. The teacher was positive and upbeat. She had a great sense of humor and made things fun. We already signed up for Agility 3 and Agility League.....I have a new boy we just adopted and he will be starting in the next agility 1...so more Zoom Room for us (we have to spell it in our house or the dogs head for the door)
I have had my Cocker Spaniel puppy at The Zoom Room in Monterey, Ca since he was 3 months old. I have raised many dogs, & grandma was a Great Dane breeder, but I still learned a lot about dog behavior at The Zoom Room. I recommend Zoom to everyone I see around town with a dog. It's fun. The instructors have helped us with breed specific issues, & everyone I meet says that Kailer is the best behaved, most well-adjusted Cocker puppy they have met. Kailer gets so excited when he sees us pull up to the Zoom Room! He just earned his "Good Citizen" certificate at Zoom and when he is older I plan to enroll him in Dog Therapy training so I can take him into our hospital to cheer up the patients.
Best ever...Both Ratna and Katie are great teachers. Katie has been training bear in class and private lessons since August of 2015 and he is quite amazing. Katie cares about every dog and it is all about positive feedback and making sure bear enjoys his time and learns in a positive environment. She sets bear up for success. ratna is fantastic and i'm very happy that she runs the monterey bay zoom room. ratna is a fantastic obedience instructor, Helps out with all the problem issues for our dogs in obedience classes and I found the scenting class that she taught very interesting and will attend a more advanced one if offered. i think ratna and Katie and the staff at zoom room monterey make training a positive and fun experience for dogs and i recommend them to everyone i meet. Thanks for allowing me to share my highly positive experience with Ratna and katie from monterey bay zoom room. Thanks to them for all the hard work and making training the owners and dogs such a great experience.
It's all about having fun.Ratna creates a positive atmosphere and is also a good teacher who addresses your dog's particular needs. You feel you have enough individual attention even though you are with a group.
The private training classes have been extremely valuable! Bochy has gained so much from his work with Ratna and has gained so much confidence and is a much happier dog. He runs in the door to the Zoom Room when it's class time! Ratna is a terrific and patient instructor and I hope to take more classes from her.
This was the 1st class I've taken with my 5yr old LH chihuahua (shelter dog) I wanted to do something fun for both of us, instead of starting with obedience I decided to do agility. The instructor made The class both fun and challenging and Enzo definitely learned and enjoyed our class time. I will continue taking class at the zoom room and would encourage anyone who wants to have a fun time with their dog in a pleasant environment, along with small class size to do it! All The staff was friendly and nice too.
Ratna does a tremendous job organizing and running the classes. She is upbeat, energetic, fun but in control. I took my Lab Norton through Obedience 1, 2, 3 and Therapy Dog at Zoom Room Monterey Bay. All through the process Ratna brought him along and let us know where and how to improve. Norton is now a certified Therapy Dog. I'm glad we went to Zoom Room.
wonderful. tink is very willful and it was hard at first. mandy's patience was so wonderful as a model. Tink is such a wonderful dog, but this has made both of our lives better. I had no idea how helpful it would be. I'm even more in love with my doggie now. Very very grateful.
Very positive and enjoyable exerience.
OverAll very nice. Puppy class with 10 dogs is too much I think. 6 to 8 puppies would be enough since they get very excited. 4 dogs in agility is also way enough.
Very pleasant. Lots of different dogs & owners to watch and learn from too. I had two trainers, both very patient and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the classes and plan to participate in a group socialization and maybe agility class.
we love the zoom room! ratna is a great instructor. she always explains why we are teaching our dogs certain commands and how to use them in everyday life. the entire staff is so friendly and helpful.
Teddy and I are enjoying our private agility lessons. Although Teddy's breed (Boxer) is not the classic agility type, he LOVES to work with the equipment and is tail wagging for every class. The experience strengthens my relationship with Teddy, gives us some additional fun time together, and has continued to make Teddy an awesome dog.
It's a great place - ratna and staff are so nice and welcoming. the room is clean and lots of great supplies. they really want to help you achieve great things with your dog.
Great guidance and great progress in my pup thus far!
It was great. Instruction was excellent, set-up was great. I felt supported all the way.
WONDERFUL INSTRUCTION. AMAZING TEACHER
it's been fantastic!
We had fun. Gracie seemed to enjoy herself but it was really hard for her to sit still so long while waiting her turn. So maybe I would like to see no more than 3 dogs in the class.
we feel so fortunate to have found monterey's zoom room! everything about it has been excellent - the staff, the facility, all of the opportunities for our puppy as well as the instruction for my husband and myself. truly - we have learned so much from everyone and our puppy is thriving from his exposure to other dogs and the skills/behavior he is acquiring. we are incredibly grateful!
Zoom Room has been very helpful in getting us through the first year of puppy craziness. Clover loves coming to class and we have all learned so much. We're on our way to having a well behaved pup. Thank you!
Its been wonderful! I have a very social 6 1/2 month old Dalmatian. Rain loves people, children, puppies, adult dog and small dogs. Which is very important to us, still working on all the behaviors.
We saw improvement every week in the behavior of Ginger, and looked forward to our weekly class. It was amazing to see the results of what we learned work so well with a little effort.
My dog and I thoroughly enjoy our time spent at the Zoom Room. He received his Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog certifications thru the Monterey Bay Zoom Room. When possible, we attend the meet ups. And have also done some of the private gyms.
Katie is great. Very dedicate and fun to work with. She has a great attitude and encourages input from the participants
Our experience at the Zoom Room has been very positive. The instructors are very helpful and offer their puppy wisdom to us every class. My dog behaves better than he did prior to the classes and the best part is that he is actually tired when we leave which is hard to accomplish with puppy!
She was terrific. Very keyed into the dogs ability and making sure they were having fun while learning

Shy Sky showing off his agility skills! His mom has put in a lot of time helping Sky become the confident dog we know he can be. He was adopted from a local animal rescue and had trouble coming out of his shell, but after coming to Zoom Room for some agility training and private gym time, he is already blossoming into an outgoing, wiggly little pup! This duo is the perfect example of how agility training can help build a dogs confidence and how it can strengthen the owner/pup relationship.
