About Zoom Room® Franchise

How do you develop the best pet franchise? Zoom Room® is a venture-backed indoor dog training gym with an emphasis on socialization. Our motto: We don’t train dogs. We train the people who love them. We appeal strongly to millennials and well-educated active individuals, especially women. Our key revenue streams include dog training classes, socialization events, and retail products.

Investment is quite low compared to other pet franchises. A Zoom Room requires a small footprint (under 3000 sq ft), minimal staff (2 people), and may be zoned absolutely anywhere. As clients accompany their dogs at all times, liability is extremely limited.

The model’s six-figure profitability is driven by passionate loyalty. Clients are retained for years with lifetime spending almost 100x the cost to acquire. Zoom Room boasts more 5-star ratings than any other dog training business in America. Plus a willingness-to-recommend score comparable to the level of Apple or Amazon.

Zoom Room works closely with animal rescue and other charitable organizations. It quickly becomes the epicenter of the dog-loving community. You will host countless memorable and well-attended events for responsible dog owners and their pets.


The Zoom Room is not a drop-off training facility. We train owners to train their dogs, and to more deeply understand, communicate and bond with their pets. Everyone knows that a tired dog is a happy dog. We also believe that a smart, well-trained dog is an even happier dog. Not to mention one with delightfully ecstatic owners.

The majority of our clients come to us in need of basic obedience or puppy training. But once inside, they’re exposed to the agility course, rankings posted on the chalkboard for our popular Agility League. So much of our brand imagery revolves around agility. This inspires aspirational thinking. Owners are excited to master obedience, then continue on to agility. (As well as other coursework like Therapy Dog training, Urban Herding, Pup-lates®, Scent Class and more.)


The Zoom Room is a dedicated canine event center. Yes, you can party with your dog. And your friends. And their dogs. We have an incredible array of special events. All of them designed to present you and your dog with an unprecedented opportunity for socialization.

Our social offerings include Playgroups, Agility League, Dog Birthday Parties, Special Events, Charitable Fundraisers, Meet-up Socials, and even Doggy Disco® parties.

There’s a method to this madness. While these social activities are fantastic fun for the owners, dogs require socialization for optimal long-term development. Exposure to novel sights, sounds, smells, people, and other dogs in a safe, clean, expertly-supervised environment is key to a dog’s well-being and happiness.


At the Zoom Room, we carry a full line of hand-picked, eco-friendly, solution-oriented pet training products.

Our pet retail selections have a consistent theme: practical benefits for clients and their dogs. Each item extensively tested by us before it is approved. And we set up our franchisees for success with a wide range of differentiated pet retail products not readily available elsewhere.

We pride ourselves in providing an exclusive value-added bonus: extraordinary product knowledge. Franchisees receive an incredible level of training on every product we offer. Our customers discover they aren’t just getting great products, but great service as well, with personalized attention and recommendations.

Where are We Located?

The Zoom Room was designed to serve a metropolitan community. Prime territories are widely available, but filling up fast. Our pet franchise is offered in all U.S. states except Hawaii, North Dakota, South Dakota.

Our zoning is retail, so you’ll enjoy enormous flexibility when finding the perfect spot. And we have a national real estate team at your disposal, at no additional cost. They will assist you at every step in finding and securing your new business site.
