LOS ANGELES, CA, Sept. 30, 2021 – Zoom Room, the nation’s largest chain of dog training facilities, is excited to announce that they have been featured as the dog training expert on beChewy, which reached out to Zoom Room for advice on how to train their dogs using positive reinforcement techniques.
Liz Claflin, VP of Operations at Zoom Room, shares her expert tips on teaching a dog the “off” command through various training techniques and positive rewards. She explains that the “off” command is one of the most difficult commands to teach, but with patience and commitment, dogs can learn to respond well to this command in order to avoid jumping on things.
For dogs who are prone to jumping up on furniture, Claflin recommends using a lure combined with the “off” verbal cue. For example, after the dog jumps up on the couch, the owner can use a treat or toy as a lure to get the dog off the couch. Once the dog is off the couch, they can be given a reward. This same technique can be used for teaching a dog to keep off the bed.
By using positive reinforcement techniques like these, owners can help their dogs learn good behavior while also building a bond of trust and mutual respect. Zoom Room is proud to be able to share their expertise with beChewy and help pet owners across the country create happy, healthy relationships with their furry friends.

“For a dog who is prone to jumping up on furniture, the off command is given along with a rewarding lure. For example, after the dog jumps up on the couch, you can use the lure of either a treat or toy combined with the ‘off’ verbal cue to lure the dog off the couch. Once the dog is off the couch, give them a reward.”
“You’ll want to use a lure when teaching a dog to keep off the bed (similar to the training sessions for keeping them off the couch and other furniture). Lure them off the bed with a tasty treat or their favorite toy while saying ‘off,’ and then give them the reward once they’ve gotten off the bed.”
