Features of the 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.

“Zoom Room wants us to succeed and it really shows through everything that they do. I fell in love with it. Mark has always been there to support us in everything we wanted to do as business owners and helped us through it.”
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. We extensively test each item before it is approved. Moreover, 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. Therefore, our customers discover they aren’t just getting great products. They receive great service, 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. Master Franchises are now also available in Canada, the UK, France, Germany and Switzerland.
Because our zoning is retail, you’ll enjoy enormous flexibility when finding the perfect spot. Furthermore, 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.
Pet Franchise Comparison
If you’re considering a pet franchise, the Zoom Room presents a robust alternative to traditional pet services like dog daycare. Ideal territories are available across the U.S. at an extremely low start-up cost. In addition to being more affordable, we’ve also eliminated many of the headaches traditionally associated with pet franchises. You can view a comparison of pet franchises, and consider the following:
|ZOOM ROOM||DAYCARE FRANCHISE|
|Zoned for Retail||Zoned Industrial|
|Only 2 people working at a time||Manage extensive staff; large payroll|
|Small footprint: about 3000 sq. ft||Typically 10,000 sq. ft+|
|Easy build-out||Expensive drainage and air ventillation system per health requirements|
|Minimal insurance coverage||High insurance cost|
|Limited liability: owners are always in control of their own dogs||High exposure to risk as dogs are always left in your care|
|Low start-up cost around $300K||Start-up cost near $1,000,000|
|Low overhead – mostly rent on 3000 sq ft||High overhead – payroll, rent, insurance, consumables, etc.|
|Many prime territories available||Crowded marketplace, hard to find a territory with room for expansion|
|No other leaders in the space (opportunity for brand to dominate in dog training)||Highly competitive space with market share split|

PET SERVICES INDUSTRY
The pet services industry is booming. In the pet industry’s premier publication, Pet Age Magazine, experts credit Zoom Room as one of the chief bellwethers for the enormous increase in this sector. The article attributes this growth to “standalone pet franchise operations like Zoom Room… rather than smaller, local companies.”
We highly recommend that you read this detailed, current status report on the Pet Services Industry in America.

DID YOU KNOW?
Zoom Room authored the best-selling puppy training book in America – now the #1 dog training book. It’s endorsed by the AKC, American Humane Association, Best Friends Animal Society, E.R. veterinarians and more. What other franchise can boast that much authority in their field?
Why Buy a Pet Franchise?
A pet franchise is ideal for people who want to go into business for themselves, but not by themselves. As a franchisee, you’re your own boss. Additionally, you manage to steer clear of the pitfalls of perfecting a business model that actually works. In other words, why waste your savings and your sleep trying to reinvent the wheel? After all, the Zoom Room has already invented this particular wheel. Now, we want to put you into the driver’s seat. Then you can zoom off to owning & running a business that will reward you in every sense of the word.
