Julene Kautzman, owner of the Charlotte franchise of Zoom Room, has a passion for business and a passion for animals which lead her to leave her job of 15 years with a local manufacturer to pursue her dream. Armed with a MBA from UNC, Chapel Hill, Julene decided to invest in Zoom Room because she saw the unique experience for dog-owners that other dog-related services did not offer – an opportunity for dog-owners to spend quality time with their dogs with a focus on training in a safe environment. “The emphasis is on fun and education for the dog, owner and our employees” says Kautzman. Zoom Room “offers an alternative to a dog park”, offering a more controlled environment with a maximum of10 dogs being booked per class (and only 6 dogs for agility classes!)

Homes for Sale, BallantyneBuzzAnd this must truly be a unique offering because, according to Julene, they had pet-owners visiting from Gastonia, Concord and Kannapolis too. Zoom Room is currently offering 17 classes beginning this Thursday (November 3rd). Classes include agility, obedience, trick training, scent discrimination and and a wonderful class called “Shy dog” which targets rescue dogs. Plus, Julene says they are especially sensitive to puppies and their safety. Zoom Room knows that puppies need to be socialized as soon as possible; but, owners stay away from multiple dog environments because of the possibility of germs tough on a puppy’s system. They thoroughly sanitize the training area each night and the first class in the morning is for puppies to provide a safer environment.

And, can you say “Doggy Disco” or “Dog Birthday Party”? Zoom Room in Ballantyne offers that too, complete with a disco ball and laser strobe lights that will delight your little darling! They also stock grain-free dog food, all-natural treats, eco-friendly dog toys and frozen dog treats. Plus, Julene gives back to the community, donating $1000 to the Partnership For Pets from her opening day proceeds!!

In addition to meeting Julene, the Buzz met her dog, Memphis, who was a rescue dogtoo. Memphis was friendly and showed me his skills by running so fast through the play tunnel, we barely had time to take a picture – and, he was grinning from ear to ear with his accomplishment. Rescue dog to doing tricks, great treats and disco-dancing…Memphis is a lucky dog!!

Don’t forget, classes start Thursday at the Zoom Room in Ballantyne!
