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
Remarkable change in our dog's behavior and demeanor with one 3 1/2 hour session with Martha. Well worth the time, effort and $$$
Excellent trainer who can answer any questions regarding an animals behavior. Highly professional.
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
Laura brought a much needed personal touch to the training of our dog. Behavior modification - Coco no longer has that wild and crazy uncontrolled energy she had before training. Children are no longer afraid to pet her and my 9yr old is no longer her chew toy😆. She comes when you call, respond quickly when chastised and walking her is a joy!!
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!
Have only met once in our home. Patty sent us a written report of her assessment of our pup, with the desired goals. We will continue meeting with her, with her directing our 'behavior' to come to those desired goals.
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 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.
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.
Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!
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.
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.
Marni is fabulous - no one better to trust with your beloved animals!
I have worked with other dog trainers but Jeff goes so much further than most. He gave our border terrier the chance she needed and all our lives are so much the better for it.
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.
