Sylvia is super knowledgeable with dogs. She understands the psychology of dogs and really helped us with our dog's behavior! We found her to be super efficient and gave us a lot of help in training our dog. When she walked through the door, my dog immediately behaved and did exactly what Sylvia asked of him. She worked on our dog's barking, and other behavior. We immediately saw results in the first hour, and continue to see improvement after she left. She was extremely gentle , and uses only positive reinforcement with our dog. She also answered our many phone calls to her afterwards and she was always gracious. We like her very much and will not hesitate recommending her. Jim from Redmond, WA
Very knowledgeable trainer . Gave us lots of advices on nutrition, understanding on the behavior of our dog. Our dog who is aggressive to most of our guests at home was so different after Martha came. He was calm and learnt to be respectful to her instantly. Amazing!
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
Anne is great, and we are seeing constant improvement in our dog's behavior using Anne's recommendations. Super simple and it works!
Wendy has done such a good job working with our St. Bernard puppy. She was very patient but firm and consistent with our stubborn dog. :) She truly loves dogs and I have already recommended her to several of my friends. Thanks Wendy!
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
Karen is extremely knowledgable in animal care, placement and training. Her passion for these animals drives her to find and utilize every possible resource to find animals the best forever homes and the training necessary for a long happy life for the animals and their new families. You won't find anyone else with her amazing capabilities.
Asya is amazing worker! She really takes care of my animals with love and big responsibility. Thanks a lot!
Cassie started walking my dog every day while I'm at work a couple of weeks ago. She's been very reliable and conscientious, and understands dog behavior, so I'm confident my dog is getting a great walk while I'm not there to take her out.
Marni is fabulous - no one better to trust with your beloved animals!
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.
Jolene not only is highly professional in what she does, but she has a caring heart and love of animals. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who truly wants their animals to be nurtured and pampered.
Whit is truly a dog whisperer, but really she's talented with all animals! She considers them her "patients", and has the best of the best bed side manners. We still call on her for any questions and concerns we have with our pets, and can't wait for her to house sit for us again :) Thanks Whit for all you do.

Grooming is more than just a bit of pet pampering; it is an important step in keeping your pet happy and healthy. Regular baths and nail trims help remove harmful germs from fur and paws that get picked up as your dog plays outside. It also provides an opportunity for the groomer to notice and treat dried or cracked paw pads and observe skin issues.
