Zoom Room, a national indoor dog training gym with an emphasis on socialization is expanding its footprint to introduce cutting-edge curriculum and positive reinforcement training to the southwest region. The Phoenix location will be owned by father-son duo and Phoenix natives, Colin and John Elliott.

John has a background as a perinatologist, a doctor that specializes with high-risk pregnancies. In addition, he has owned and operated several different medical businesses, and Colin helped his father run a practice on the operations side. After seven years Colin knew his heart wasn’t in the medical field, and began to look into business opportunities that focused on his passion for dogs. After being introduced to the Zoom Room concept and visiting one of the brand’s California locations, Colin and his father were hooked. Colin and John are looking at locations in North Phoenix and hope to open this holiday season.

“Zoom Room is something that is completely unique to the Phoenix area,” said Colin. “Phoenix dog owners will greatly benefit from the climate-controlled environment of Zoom Room for when it gets too hot to be outside for extended periods of time with your dog. We are looking forward to kick-starting the build-out process to bring Zoom Room’s exceptional methods and classes to our community.”

Currently operating in nine locations throughout the country, Zoom Room offers positive dog training in group or private classes, including agility, puppy training, obedience, and therapy dog training, among others. The Zoom Room’s motto is “We don’t train dogs. We train the people who love them,” underscoring the emphasis placed on socialization and community involvement.

“We are excited to expand into the southwest region, and Phoenix is an ideal market for the Zoom Room,” said Zoom Room CEO Mark Van Wye. “Colin and John bring a wealth of expertise and passion to our proven system, and I am thrilled to introduce Zoom Room to the Phoenix community.”

Along with the Phoenix site, Zoom Room is opening two additional training gyms in its home state of California, bringing the number of stores to twelve as it continues to rapidly expand. In addition to providing an array of training classes, Zoom Room provides ongoing social events for the dog-loving community and a curated retail offering of American made, solution-oriented products.

Zoom Room celebrates responsible pet owners who love to train and socialize with their dogs to deepen the bonds of communication. They embrace positive dog training methods in a fun, friendly environment for working out with your dog. To learn more about Zoom Room, visit zoomroom.com.
