At the Zoom Room, we don’t train dogs. We train the people who love them! We’ve redefined dog training, with classes specially designed to build confidence and success as dogs master skills in a simple, step-by-step process. And we utilize only positive dog training methods, which your entire family can easily master and embrace. You will be actively engaged in your dog’s training, working as a team as you learn to communicate more effectively with your dog. So what you learn at the Zoom Room doesn’t have to stay at the Zoom Room. Behaviors will naturally transition to life at home with your dog.
Levels training is a flexible, personalized approach to dog training designed for the busy owner. You work at your own pace, and graduate to the next level when you and your dog are ready to move up. You can attend class as frequently as you like, or skip a week or two if your schedule changes. You’ll never fall behind because everyone in class is at the same level working on the same skills.
When you begin dog training classes at the Zoom Room, you can start off one of two ways: Orientation or an Evaluation. If you’re starting off at square one, you will first be required to attend an Orientation, after which you will begin classes in Basic Manners, which is our first level of obedience training.
Most students start at Basic Manners after attending an Orientation, and will be “graduated” to the next level when the instructor determines the dog and handler have mastered the skills needed to move on. After graduating from Basic Manners, a whole range of new training options will open – such as more advanced obedience, or agility training or a wealth of enrichment classes.
Orientation is a FREE half-hour session you’ll attend without your dog present. We will orient you to our facility and policies, get all of your vaccination records and other details in order, and we will cover basics such as loading a clicker.
Or, if you and your dog already have some solid training under your belt and collar, we’ve got you covered! We make it easy for you to place out of beginner classes to get you right into the level where you belong. Just schedule a half-hour private Evaluation so we can ascertain your dog’s current skill level and make training recommendations. If you book an Evaluation you do NOT need to attend Orientation. And if you have two dogs, they can both attend Evaluation at no additional cost.
We also offer a variety of specialized six-week workshops. These include Shy Dog, Therapy Dog, Calm Down, Urban Herding, Advanced Dog Tricks, and Scent Work. We also have two three-week workshops: Come When Called and Loose Leash Walking. You can learn more about all of these using the options below.
