Sylvia is great! She clearly has a broad base of knowledge and experience with dogs and their handlers. She is great at explaining dog behavior clearly, and in a straightforward way. I loved being around her, and enjoyed the training session. I've already recommended her to two of my friends who need pup training. She clearly cares a tremendous amount about dogs and their people.

Martha was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was very thorough and helped us better understand our dog's behavior. We adopted our german shepherd mix about a year ago and have been trying to resolve the issues on our own but have been unsuccessful. We are so glad we hired Martha and got her assistance. She showed us how to fix our dog's issues on the leash and now our dog is enjoyable to walk, when before it was always a battle. She also helped us with our dog's barking and anxiety around strangers. Martha seems very passionate about helping dogs and their owners and even gave us a follow up phone call after our visit. We are also glad that we hired her because she is available by phone if we need any further assistance. Overall, great experience!

Jennifer is awesome. The dogs started behaving better from the moment she walked in the door (seriously, she addressed the dogs behavior before introducing herself). Jennifer clearly knows dogs and how to work with their humans to train their dogs.

Already seeing improvement after one session. She caught a lot of little issues we hadn’t thought were issues as we just dismissed them as puppy behavior or a phase

I have loved my experience at Zoom Room! The prices are reasonable and positive training is working very well for me and my pup. Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive about my dog's behavior and has been patient with me as I learn how to use the clicker. Also, she was understanding when I had a problem with my payment card, which I feel is an example of her non-judgmental and easy-going attitude. I will definitely continue my training at Zoom Room!

Miss Anderson has offered us a whole new relationship with Rainie, our son's diabetic alert service dog. Our son, Hezi, is 7 and he and Rainie had developed some very 'rambunctious boy and his dog' bad habits. We were losing her attention as a service dog to their rough play and our pet-like treatment of Rainie. Miss Anderson came to the rescue with a wonderful, digestible protocol to create a structure inside of which everyone's needs would be tended to- while creating and maintaining the stellar manners and focus that Hezi and Rainie need to be a team. Her personality is lovely, her methods are kind, precise, and effective. We recommend her highly for a variety of kid/dog/animal applications- she's even helped us create much needed structure to our daily routines and train our cats into more desirable habits.

Nancy is absolutely amazing, having made real, substantive contact with four animals, some of which are wary at best, in the span of just a few minutes. She has a gift. I couldn't recommend her more heartily.

We have a 100 pound 5 year old German Shepard that was aggressive to other dogs while on leash. They helped us understand his behavior on leash. They are still helping me be more consistent and watch and understand the cues my dog is giving me. I appreciate their patience and true passion for helping did owners help their dogs.

My experience has been a very good one. I had been having trouble with my dog biting me when we went for walks. That problem seems to be solved. Shawna's understanding of animals has helped to translate some of the dog speak for me. In other she has been able to explain the dog's actions for me and to tell me how to deal with her, I am very grateful for her help.

We have a little Shih Tzu named Oliver. Oliver is a year old and was out of control. He would not listen, sit, or stay. I found Alex and life has been so much better with Oliver!! He sits when told and stays for a little bit. We are still working on it! :) Alex is patient and kind. You can see right away that he loves animals and most importantly, animals love him back! Oliver took to Alex immediately. Alex has a very gently and patient approach. He gets results as after only 2 sessions Oliver was sitting, staying, and listening much better. I highly recommend Alex and I will be continuing our sessions with him and Oliver.

Melinda is incredible! I think our pets are hoping we will travel again soon so that they can hang out with her! She is very diligent, detailed, and absolutely loves animals. She really treated our older cat and dog like they were her own. I cannot recommend her highly enough and it gave us great piece of mind that our pets and home would be well cared for while we were gone.

Julie's knowledge and expertise were evident from the clear instructions she provided to me and the way she interacted with my Husky-Mal mix, Koda. Koda would go crazy whenever she encountered other dogs when we took our walks, so I sought Julie's help in finding ways to deal with those situations, as well as ways to help introduce her to known friendly dogs. She brought her dogs (Malamutes) to assess Koda's reactivity and we worked on exercises to divert her attention and to gradually approach and greet her dog in a more controlled manner. She also showed me how to prevent Koda from jumping up when greeting people and tips on training her to greet people politely. I've been practicing what I learned with Koda and her behavior has definitely improved. I'd recommend Julie/Learning 4 Life Dog Training to anyone looking for training and practical advice using positive reinforcement.

Janet was a pleasure to work with! She came to our home to help us manage our dogs fear/phobia that was progressively getting worse. She had great ideas that we would have never thought of and helped us practice and refine some training techniques. She even helped us with our other dog and issues we hadn't planned on dealing with in that session. She answered all our questions and made sure we felt good about everything before she left. Highly recommend working with Janet who clearly loves animals and is good at what she does.

I truly love Christy’s skill and common sense in her training and techniques. Her simple training solution to my pups behavior with potty training, jumping, biting, and bolting out the front door have diminished with her easy daily training solutions and commands in just weeks. My dogs really enjoy her fun training games and her kind patients and loving nature. Christy works with you and your schedule and comes to your home to assist in the training process. Her prices are reasonable and affordable too! I highly recommended Christy for anyone with dog behavior or training needs.

I used to work a full time as well as a part time job while trying to take care of my amazing pets. To me they were family and I was hesitant to trust just anyone to care for them as I would when I was away. After realizing the lack of qualified and trustworthy options there are for pet owners, I became frustrated. I decided to turn that frustration into inspiration. Shortly after that my career and free time changed for the better and I decided to help others with the same dilemma. My goal is to provide you with the confidence and security to leave your pets under the care of someone equally as dedicated to their health, happiness and overall well being. This inspiration started out as an occasional hobby or activity and quickly developed into a fast growing business. I have many loyal customers (owners and pets ). I am grateful to be doing something I love.
