Martha is a very intuitive, miracle worker!! I adopted a 1-year old rescue a year ago, so sweet and what seemed a perfect fit. After a couple of weeks, she woke up and was a holy terror - a nightmare to walk, lunging, barking and disturbing the neighbors. I did some private lessons, and enrolled in a highly regarded school specializing in positive dog training. I had a "reactive" dog and everything seemed to set her off. The teachers were very nice, but after hundreds of dollars and several sessions of Growly Dog, and BAT Clinic, there was only the very slightest improvement. I still had to plan my walks, avoiding all of the triggers...which was pretty much everything. The whole business was exhausting. Finally, I called Martha :>) She spent hours with us, explaining what was going on with my sweet girl, what we were doing right and what wasn't working...and then we took to the street. She spoke with my neighbor explaining my dogs behavior and let him know it was all going to be a thing of the past. She visited the other dogs on the street, the kids, a bicyclist, crows, squirrels...my dog shook like a leaf, but eventually calmed down. I saw my dog transform right in front of my eyes, becoming happy and relaxed and walking pretty. Two days later, I am reaping the benefits of Martha's visit. Still a work in process, but I have enjoyed our walks, and I feel free to walk where I choose. We were able to quietly walk near a small dog tonight that has always been on the receiving end of my dogs bark. We were both happy. Thank you Martha!!

Cindy was amazing! On our first visit, we learned how to improve everything from the crate we have our dog sleep in, to the food we feed our dog. We learned some basics of dog training, and have seen vast improvements already in his behavior. Cindy is easy to talk to, and non judgmental. She obviously loves animals very much, and wants only the best for you and your pet. We are beyond happy with our experience with Cindy!

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!

I call Melinda the Dog Whisperer! She has a very calming effect on all animals and you can see she is very experienced in taking care of dogs. She took great care of my old cocker spaniel while I was away for 2 weeks and she was happy and healthy when I got back. She's an old dog and Melinda has lots of experience with her own older dogs so this made me feel very secure with leaving my pup in her care. I would recommend Melinda in a heartbeat!

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

Recently I had the bad luck of both my standing pet sitters moving out of Seattle. I hunted quite a bit for a new pet sitter and came across Morgan from Pit Stop. It's always hard to leave your dogs in the care of someone new when you go on trips, but upon meeting Morgan and seeing her interact with my two pit bulls, I knew she was a perfect fit for us. Morgan took excellent care of them for the long weekend we were away! She sent 2+ daily texts with pics of my pups during her time with them, during morning and evening stays, as well as their midday walks, which I appreciated immensely. She eased my mind while I was away knowing they were in good hands, and I came home to happy and well taken care of dogs. It was great to find a trusting pet sitter again and will be using Morgan in the future!

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.

Genaviv is an expert at organizing. She came over to clean and organize files and my closet. Not a single surface was left untouched, and my closet has never been so uncluttered. In addition, she noticed my dog pacing and even let her out to use the restroom while she worked. Her attention to detail and expert skills were so appreciated!
