Full Franchise Information
Created by the dog business experts, the Zoom Room is the only brick-and-mortar dog training franchise in the U.S. We are an eco-friendly, active lifestyle franchise that practices only positive reinforcement dog training.
Our founder, Jaime Van Wye, serves as the National Dog Daycare Chair of the Pet Care Services Association, and has been helping entrepreneurs create successful dog businesses for the past fifteen years. She conceived the Zoom Room as a franchise from its very inception, in order to put the FUN back into owning and running a dog business. This business model does away with the hassles and headaches inherent in kennels, daycares and related businesses in which customers leave animals in your care.
As a Zoom Room franchisee, you will enjoy diverse and complementary revenue streams in a hip, sporty atmosphere:
- Group Classes (agility, obedience, puppy preschool, tricks, therapy dog, Pup-lates™ core conditioning, Shy Dog for rescue dogs, Calm Down for hyperactive dogs, Hollywood Dog for aspiring stars)
- Private Dog Training
- Weekly Agility League
- Rentals to members and local dog trainers
- Events (dog birthday parties, Doggy Disco Nights, Bark Mitvahs, breed meet-ups, charity fund-raisers, even pet commitment ceremonies!)
- Specialty Retail (eco-friendly toys & equipment, all-natural treats)
- Educational Seminars
- Open Gym (an indoor dog park for members for honing skills and additional socialization)
We jump through hoops for our franchisees with unparalleled service, support, and training.
We take enormous pride in the diversity of our franchisees, employees and clients. The Zoom Room, by its very nature, attracts dog owners who wish to bring profound love and a superb quality of life for their pets. A great number of our clients enjoy the company of rescued animals, and the Zoom Room works closely with local animal shelters, rescue organizations and other charitable foundations to improve the lives of pets. Both in our group classes and our extravagant special events, the Zoom Room is primarily a place for socialization - for humans and dogs alike. As such, we strive to create a fun-filled, good-humored environment that fosters tolerance, goodwill and acts of kindness. We are an equal opportunity employer.
Description of Training Process:
Our proprietary online classroom is like a grad school course in dog behavior, providing a comprehensive educational background. After completing this course at your own pace, completing all assignments, and performing volunteer work at local shelters, you will attend three weeks of hands-on training in Los Angeles learning the curriculum, training methods and dog handling, as well as our state-of-the-art software system for managing enrollments, inventory, sales, accounting and client management, as well as all other topics germane to running your business successfully. You will also receive richly-detailed curriculum guides for all classes.
Absolutely no prior dog training experience is necessary. However, it goes without saying that you MUST LOVE DOGS! Franchisees should have impeccable professional appearance, charm and charisma, as this is a customer-service-oriented business. Excellent spoken and written communication skills, great attention to detail, basic computer skills, enthusiasm, passion, ambition, warmth and compassion are necessities. Having run your own business, or past experience in sales, marketing, and teaching or coaching groups of people are all great assets to bring to the table. You should have $75K of liquid capital available for this business and a net worth of at least $150K.
