Zoom Room, the fastest growing, and highest-rated dog training business in America, is celebrating the opening of its Arrowhead location in Peoria this weekend. Located at 7439 W. Bell Road Suite, A-1, Zoom Room Arrowhead will be the Los Angeles-based brand’s first location in Arizona.

Zoom Room Arrowhead is owned and operated by long-time Phoenix resident Colin Elliott. Elliot shares a lifelong passion for baseball with his father. Elliot worked at a major league baseball front office and regularly traveled to games around the country with his father. During these travels, they often discussed their other great shared passion: dogs. When the two encountered Zoom Room, they decided to go into business together, allowing Elliot to be his own boss and to share his enthusiasm with the Arrowhead community.

In celebration of the opening, Zoom Room Arrowhead will be hosting a series of safe, socially-distanced events, which will consist of several 45-minute Intro to Dog Agility Training classes for $5 on August 22 and 23 and four free activity-filled mini-parties on the afternoon of August 22. Guests attending the August 22 afternoon mini-parties will enjoy an ice cream sundae cart, dog-friendly photo booth, Doggy Donut decorating and bobbing for hot dogs (for the dogs!). Masks and reservations are required for the agility classes and mini-parties. Classes will be capped at 6 dogs while the mini-parties will be capped at 20 dogs to allow for proper social distancing in the 4,000 square foot facility. Staff members will be controlling the flow of traffic at each event to prevent bottlenecking between stations. For each dog that registers and attends the mini-parties, Zoom Room Arrowhead will donate $10 to the Arizona Small Dog Rescue, a local non-profit.

“Starting this new chapter of my life, I am excited to bring this dog training business to the Peoria community and to welcome all puppies, older pooches and their people to experience all Zoom Room has to offer,” said Elliot. “I hope the community takes to this fun, dually-beneficial concept that bonds humans and their dogs.”

Zoom Room, which is the author of #1 best-selling dog training book in America, continues to demonstrate impressive growth despite the pandemic, as many people have adopted new dogs and puppies in recent months. The brand’s training centers have been a godsend for these pet parents, as they provide a safe and healthy environment for them to socialize and train their furry companions. Some of the safety measures Zoom Room has implemented at its locations – Arrowhead included – are smaller group sizes for classes, only two staff members working at a time, frequent cleaning and sanitizing with hospital grade germicide, mask requirements, HEPA filters and encouraging social distancing of six feet or more, which happens to be the standard leash length for dog reactivity.

Currently operating in California, Texas, Washington, Virginia and soon in Florida and Nevada, Zoom Room offers positive dog training in group or private classes, including agility, puppy training, obedience, and therapy dog training, among others.

Zoom Room Arrowhead will be open Monday – Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The gym can be reached at (623) 850-1342 or https://zoomroom.com/arrowhead.
