Dogs must learn basic agility, or they will never be able to follow such common commands as "up" and "be the first dog to jump across the Grand Canyon." Learn from each other with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $69 for four group dog-training classes and an evaluation (a $135 value)
- $35 for four 30-minute private dog gym sessions and an evaluation (a $70 value)
Each option begins with a 30-minute evaluation, which allows the staff to meet with owners and their dogs and determine current canine obedience levels as well as familiarity with obstacles. This information is used during the dog-training classes, which are typically 50 minutes long and vary depending on needs. Available classes include dog agility, puppy, obedience, tricks, Puplates, and canine crosstraining. During private gym sessions, owners and their dogs have private access to Zoom Room’s indoor agility course—replete with toys, obstacles, and space to run—for 30 minutes.
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.
