I didn't think Ayla and I would enjoy the agility, but I discovered that we love doing it! and we love David, he is a great instructor :-) I just wish the class was a little smaller, so we have more time for each dog. The wait time for each dog is pretty long.

Lily loves the classes and she certainly feels more confident and outgoing.

- Dona Warner, who enjoyed Agility 3 with Lily

We have been taking classes from Dave for about 10 months, and we and Lucy are hooked! Such a fun and satisfying experience for not only Lucy, but ourselves. The operative word is "fun"! Lucy was very shy, and now, because of her regular exposure to other dogs and the fun discipline, she gets crazy excited when we say, "we're going to ZOOM ROOM today!!" It's so wonderful to see the confidence she has gained!

- Christy Ito and Jim Zimmerman, who enjoyed Agility 2 with Lucy

My 3 year-old English Cocker Spaniel has a great time in agility! I've participated in outdoor agility with another dog but Zoom Room is a good alternative --- no distractions at the park, smaller class size and we like the flexible class times.

- Andrea Radis, who enjoyed Agility with SanDee

I loved how David not only taught the dogs but the owners as well! He made sure that Casey felt comfortable and didn't have us force her to do anything she didn't want to do. Our dog started the class a little timid and by the end, she couldn't wait to go and start the course.

- Justine Krolikowski, who enjoyed Agility 1 with Casey

SanDee is an English Cocker Spaniel and very much scent driven. She enjoyed agility classes for a while but got distracted by all of the various smells --- so the Scent Workshop was right up her alley. I think she had fun in the classes and seemed to get the idea of finding the box with a scent --- but she is also very treat oriented so she was happy to get lots of treats!

- Andrea, who enjoyed Scent Workshop with SanDee

We love coming to the Sherman Oaks Zoom Room with our dogs, Amber Joy and Scooter. My husband and I enjoy training our pups and Amber and Scooter continue to gain confidence and have fun at the same time. Big shout out to trainer David for all his support and guidance.

- Denise Okuda, who enjoyed Agility 3 & Tricks/AAT with Amber Joy

So much fun and new challenges for Chance and me. I love the people that I have met and whom are so supportive of each dog in our courses. I think Chance has a new romance with Rook and Tippy, he seems to seek them out. This Sat. will be our 32nd Class so I guess that says it all......also we all share info about our pets health.....very helpful. We are still Zooming!!!!!

- Tena, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & 2, Agility 1,2, &3 with Chance

The private instruction has been so helpful in getting me acclimated to having a new dog. As a first time dog owner, I have no idea what I am doing so these sessions have been essential in getting some of the basics down and getting me to feel more confident and be a good leader for Martee. I can't wait to start classes next! I mean, Martee can't wait!

- Jessica K., who enjoyed Private Instruction with Martee

Megan is the best! She's the reason we (me and the dog) keep coming back!

- Ziggy, who enjoyed puppy obedience with Ziggy

Fantastic! We love the fact that when you sign up for classes, you don't have to attend in consecutive order. This is great for busy people like us. It's also wonderful to have The Zoom Room so close to our house. Our dogs are having a blast, building confidence and learning new things. A big thank you to trainers Kevin and David for all their help and support!

- Denise and Michael Okuda, who enjoyed Agility 2 with Amber Joy and Scooter T. Rocketboy

We didn't know what to expect from this class. It turned out to be interesting and fun! It was amazing to watch the dogs learn each week! Maybe Jordyn will learn to find my cell phone soon!

- Kim & Darren, who enjoyed Scent class workshop with Jordyn

Amazing! Love them both.

- Julie, who enjoyed Private lessons with Chula

Class was great! There were 3-5 dogs in the group which was enough dogs to create a distraction for my puppy, but few enough to get some personal attention when needed. MacKenzie loves coming to class and learning new things, and is always excited to go!

- Kyle Wilson, who enjoyed Obedience 2 with MacKenzie

Wonderful! Our pups have fun and we all enjoy the experience.

- Denise and Mike Okuda, who enjoyed Agility 2 and tricks class with Scooter T. Rocketboy and Amber Joy

lots of fun for both dogs and people. Good instruction

- Janet Talmy, who enjoyed Agility3 with Jonty

It's been fun to watch my pup's courage grow throughout the 4 weeks of training and one gym session. She was scared of the trainer at first, and now can't stop giving him attention! I've been to a lot of training facilities, and this has been the most exciting to experience.

- Jackie H., who enjoyed Agility 1 and Agility 2 and private gym with Myko

My dog is very timid and it took a while for her to get comfortable enough to pass Obedience 1. Dave can read a dog easily and knows how to deal with Emmy. She was lying down comfortably by the end of class.

- Michael Daley, who enjoyed Obedience 2 with Emmy

Love the atmosphere & the ability to schedule classes (online)when I can attend, without the guilt of missing a week or feeling like I am behind if I don't attend every week. Also love how the instructor(s) work with each dog/handler's abilities without the pressure of having to be at a certain pace or specific level on each/every obstacle.

- Julie Martin, who enjoyed Agility 2 (10 sessions; one of which was Agility 1) with Gasket

Buddy and I had a great time! Buddy is so interested in learning new things so we wanted him to do agility since he already is a natural gymnist in our home. We love when the classes are small 3-4 participants because it allows everyone to get the individualized attention that they need. Kara is awesome! She knows the dogs really well and has tons of suggestions for how to help support Buddy in accomplishing the different activities in the class.

- Melisa P., who enjoyed Agility 2 with Buddy

Kara is super. She has made our class time fun and informative. Both of my dogs have improved behaviorally and love coming.

- Andrea, who enjoyed Obedience 1-2 and Agility 1 with Mothra & Gamera

It has been a really helpful experience, for myself, a first time pet owner, as well as my dog. I feel I am more in control of situations that arise. Zoom Room helped give me the tools I needed to make my life and my pet's life less stressful.

- Diane, who enjoyed Training classes with Polo

We are so grateful for Zoom Room and for our instructor Kara. Kara is wonderful with all the dogs and creates such a safe and fun environment for everyone to learn. Our pup Cooper loves Zoom room and it has been a great bonding experience for us as a family/pack.

- Liz, who enjoyed Agility 2 & Agility 3 with Cooper

It's been wonderful. Everyone is extremely knowledgable and helpful and supportive. Definitely real animal people.

- Liza Botkin, who enjoyed Therapy dog and a few obedience classes plus training for Canine Good Citizen test with Brindy

WOW! Toby and I have had an absolute BALL. Kevin is kind, patient, explains things very well, and we love it! Facility is clean, "open", and the equipment is GREAT. The only thing is that it's far away from my home, but I love the fact that if you have to miss a week that you're not "docked" and can still come the following week. It's great that there are classes like this on the weekends too to enable people who have 12-hour days at work to be able to participate with their dog in activities such as this!

- Terri T, who enjoyed Agility with TOBY

Dave has been very helpful with Arya's problems of leash aggression. She is also having a great time learning agility!

- Kat, who enjoyed Private training/agility with Arya

Max's experience and mine are unbelievable. Dave has taught us that we are in control and our pups can do anything if we handle them right, and of course they are having the best time so they enjoy the agility, the friendship with the other dogs and pleasing us, the owners. When I mention we are going to agility today he sits by the front door.

- EWH, who enjoyed Agility with Max

Agility training has been the best thing for Shiloh! He's what most would refer to as a "problem child" because he is too smart for his own good. It also doesn't help that he is deaf, meaning he's never heard the word "no". This training challenges him both mentally and physically which gives our furniture a much needed break :) An added bonus is that even when we're at home he seems to respect and listen (not literally of course) to us more. Overall it's a great bonding/learning experience that I would recommend everyone try!

- Jaclyn M, who enjoyed private agility with Shiloh

The joy,fun,and growth that Chance, my street rescue dog and I experience is beyond my expectations. I feel it has helped him in so many ways and me as well. I have met so many wonderful owners and their pets whom all share great stories. The support of the instructors and staff is wonderful as well as the group effort to praise each and every dog. I never had a rescue dog off the street so Zoom Room helped me understand how to help Chance grow into a real great little guy. I tell everyone about my experience there and how happy I am to meet so many great people who too rescued a dog too. The Private Gym is very helpful for you and your Dog, I highly recommend doing this with your classes. I am now in my second series of 10 more classes, I guess you can say that I Really Love Zoom Room for more reasons than I have said. Thanks to all the Crew at Sherman Oaks, Chance and I will be Zooming with you for ever....All Critter Love, Tena and Chance

- Tena, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & 2, Agility 1,2, &3 with Chance

The trainers are great! It's a great workout for me and my dog. Its good quality time we can spend together as well. Not only does my dog love it but I learn a lot about myself as well.

- Amanda Morteo, who enjoyed Agility 3 with July Morteo

My dog Myko loves walking in the door and seeing her favorite trainer, Kevin. Agility 1 and 2 has built her confidence and I have seen changes in her in confindence level outside of the class as well. I can only imagine how much better she will be if I continue with training.

- Jackie Hodge, who enjoyed Agility 1 and Agility 2 with Myko

Kara is super. She has made our class time fun and informative. Both of my dogs have improved behaviorally and love coming.

- Andrea, who enjoyed Obedience 1-2 and agility 1 with Mothra & Gamera

Excellent - we've been trying to get our 5-year-old dog to stop pulling on the leash from the beginning, and we're well on the way.

- Nick Batzdorf, who enjoyed Basic manners 2 (I think that's what it's called) with Chloe

Kevin has been very patient with me. He never talks down to me or my dog. Everything is always positive. He has helped alot.
