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.

Remarkable change in our dog's behavior and demeanor with one 3 1/2 hour session with Martha. Well worth the time, effort and $$$

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

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.

We went through Belynda's 8 week training course with our 7 month old boston terrier, Lucy. Lucy started out as a goofy, easily distracted puppy who walked zigzag on a leash. Belynda helped turn Lucy into an obedient little puppy. She also helped us better understand: the training process, Lucy's behavior & how to react to or correct Lucy to get the best results out of the training program. She was also able to help us address some of the small issues we were having at home with Lucy (jumping up on people, chewing on inappropriate things, etc.) It was a great course for all of us!

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.

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.

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.

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.

About

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.
