The hands-on, knowledgeable staff of Zoom Room leads pooches through various training sessions on agility, obedience, and tricks within a tidy, multihued space. Six-week training courses ready Fidos and Fifis for the world outside their dog beds. Obedience 1 instills proper behavior with positive motivational tools that include fun games and inspiring speeches delivered entirely in Basenji yodels. Owners can enhance their dogs’ experiences with enrichment classes, challenging them to locate specific objects in Scent Discrimination class or conquer classic maneuvers in the form of roll over, sit, shake, and pretend to saw the assistant in half during Tricks 1 sessions. In Puppy Preschool for four-legged tots, owners glean tidbits on housebreaking, jumping problems, and issues with excessive shoe or gum chewing. The Intro to Agility class poses obstacles such as tunnels, A-frames, dog agility walks, and teeter-totters for furry students to conquer on their journeys toward nimbleness.
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.
