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

I have 2 rescue chis and one shows dog on dog aggression, dog to person aggression, fearful and reactive small dog syndrome, stranger danger issues and a list of others small issues. After a very thorough phone consultation we made an appt to come to my home I got effective methods that were easy to follow and have gotten immediate results. Ive been on my own only 1 day since martha left and I have started to exercise several modifications on my own and I can see the behaviour change, such as waiting at the door until I give permission to exit, not jumping up on the couch uninvited, barking at lots of little noises and he listens to me and my leadership carries much more weight now. Martha audio tapes your sessions and leaves you the tapes to review. I also video taped them and have been reviewing segments in the last day which is helpful. She comes just one time and addresses everything at that visit. And it is effective to do it that way. It probably costs less and it takes less time out of everyones schedule. I like getting it done in one shot. For her level of experience and the effectiveness of her teqnique she is a good value. She understands the psychology of the dog, the "why" and gets to the root of that as opposed to just "training". Its not about just the dog changing, you as the leader have to change too and she shows you exactly how to do that. Follow up phone calls are included so if something isnt working quite right or something else arrises she can coach you over the phone if you call her. I am so glad I did this. I know that soon I wont have to worry about my dog nipping at strangers, or barking non-stop everytime someone comes to the door, or growling at my husband when he comes to bed or attacking my other chi. Thanks Martha!

We took our 18 month old put bull for training. Anne was very informative and helpful gave my wife and I tons of handouts to help us to continue our training at home between lessons and to continue now. Rusty when he first started his training couldn't even see a dog without getting anxious and start barking and lunging. Now after 4 weeks he will allow dogs to walk by withing about 6 feet without him even caring and we actually took him camping over labor day and the campsite on both sides of us had dogs and he didn't have one outburst. Also rusty now walks nice on a leash with us. If your dog as any behavioral issues or just want to add more training to your dog's repertoire than I highly suggest Anne. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable patient and also affordable than her. Thank you again Anne or and Kirby for putting up with Rusty'a nonsense

We are so happy that we found Wendy to help us with our 100 pound mastiff mix. Before we started training, our dog pulled us everywhere, was nervous around other dogs and people, and we were afraid to take her anywhere off leash because she never came when called. After completing our training, we have a completely new dog! I can't believe that she will heel beside me offleash even with other people and dogs around us! I'm so happy that we can finally trust our dog and give her the freedom she deserves. Thanks, Wendy! You're the best!

We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!

Our Lucy is quite sweet but also a very rambunctious Australian Cattle dog. This combined with her stubbornness and physical strength, she was out of control. Thankfully I found Alex. He is great! Right from the start he had Lucy following his commands. Lucy now sits / stays and comes when I call her. We are working on walking without pulling on the leash. It’s wonderful to see the changes with her. He loves dogs and they love him. I highly recommend Alex. I can’t say it enough, he is great!

Nikki is awesome! I have 2 dogs, one is older and the other is just under two years old. Neither is out of control or major nuisance, but there was room for improvement. The younger one is leery of people and a bit skittish. At our first meeting the young walked up to Nikki and allowed herself to be pet and she was at ease. We are just about a month into training and all is going well. The dogs have responded well to the training and I've seen significant improvement.

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.

Angelica really cares about our dogs she has made progress with our hardest dog to walk where other people have failed. We have multiple dogs and she takes all of them into consideration. We HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger

Dinah is fantastic! She's reliable, trustworthy, flexible, and most importantly our dogs just love her! We have been with Dinah for a year now. She walks our two dogs three times or more per week while my fiancé and I work long shifts at a hospital 30 minutes away. We are able to focus on our work without worry that our dogs will be cared for. I highly recommend her!
