Dogs must learn to obey their masters, or they will never follow such common commands as “sit” and “show me the value of life through years of companionship.” Learn from each other with this Groupon.

During an initial evaluation, staff members meet with canines to determine their obedience levels. For more free-spirited exercise, human and dog duos can access an indoor dog park complete with agility courses and a toy chest. The private gym sessions, in which dogs are completely off the leash, run in 30-minute intervals. Alternatively, dog-training classes help build obedience, skills, and agility through lessons such as Tricks Class, Canine Good Citizen, and Puppy Preschool.
Zoom Room’s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it’s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury.
In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room’s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility’s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.

“Enjoyed Steve's information at the evaluation, it was a helpful and useful session. My dog and I greatly enjoyed our first agility session today and will probably purchase more when we use these up! Although our pup has endless physical energy, I think the class was a great mental workout for her as well! ”
“It was a great visit and we can't wait to go back and see what they can help us do with Tux--training and agility.”
