I plan on continuing training with zoom room. Hiccup has learned a lot; so have I. Definitely worth it! Thanks for understanding he's a young anxious dog with an inexperienced owner.

The classroom is clean, the staff is friendly, and the trainer is awesome. Whether it's a shy dog, a fearful one, or an over-excited one, Andrea knows how to help each dog differently. The wide variety of classes provides different metal and physical stimulation for the dogs. Besides tiring out everyone, it's a great bonding experience for the handlers and the pups.
I also like how the courses are designed, so I can walk in to any class as long as my dog passed the prerequisite. I don't have to sign up for a whole series of classes nor worry about missing anything when I can't make a single class. Works great for me, who need to go on business trips or get super busy at work on occasion.
Going to training classes at Zoom Room is super addicting! Highly recommended to every dog and its owners!

Great positive training experience

We all had a great time with this class, and Hope was so tired after each class. She loved going to the Zoom Room every week. Andrea was a wonderful instructor who made it easy and fun for everyone.

Andrea's great! Gilhooley and I love working with her. She's terrific about understanding Gil's quirks and helping us work with others.
- Sara O'Brien, who enjoyed Scent Workshop with Gilhooley
Really good, as expected. Caddie got individual attention, despite there being 6 or 7 other quite active dogs in the class. Good opportunity to combine all apparatuses. The instructor kept the chaos to a controlled exvitement

Kamea and I have really enjoyed all of our classes at the zoom room! The facilities are great and Andrea and her team are very well informed, helpful, and awesome people all around. I am currently taking my dog for puppy school, but I know I will be continuing taking her to the zoom room for adult obedience, tricks, and agility!
- Nicole T, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool, Puppy Obedience with Kamea
The class was very well run, organized and well controlled. I'm moving out of the area so will not be continuing at the Zoom Room.

This place is great! We've learned a lot and our dog loves it. We will definitely continue to attend classes here.

As someone who has raised and trained dozens of puppies, fostered and placed difficult adoption cases, and competed with and bred champion dogs, to say that I'm a tough client is an understatement; I'm an impossible one! I think of myself as someone who definitely doesn't NEED to take my dogs to a training class, but I do so regardless because I value the socialization, as well as the dedicated training time my dogs receive from the experience. I do however, normally find major fault with most trainers and their programs, and in the worst cases have actually walked out on trainings that were just a complete waste of my time; that has not been the case with the training we've done with Andrea at the Zoom Room in Belmont. I have a very shy, and sensitive, rescue case who has pushed my training abilities, and my patience, to it's limits. I signed us up for the Shy Dog Workshop as a last resort before having her evaluated for medication, and, am overjoyed to say that not only did I not leave the class in disgust, but I've actually learned new techniques to help my shy girl overcome our biggest challenges. Andrea is observant, patient, and understanding with these shy dogs, and if you can learn to do the same, and follow the process, you can help your shy dog overcome her fears as well. Andrea celebrated our wins with us, and came up with additional suggestions when we were stuck. When we started this class, our shy dog refused to come out from under my chair, shook uncontrollably, and dreaded other human interaction, but after the 6 sessions, she explores the Zoom Room on her own, kisses and lets the other people in class pet her, and is a happy, waggy-tailed little girl who is proud of herself for completing agility challenges. She is a very difficult case, and helping her overcome her fears will be a lifelong challenge, but with the new tools we learned from Andrea, I'm confident that we can do it. We will be returning for more lessons and programs with my shy girl, and I will bring all of my dogs to Andrea at the Zoom Room for training. Thank you Andrea!

Turbo loves agility training at Zoom Room!
- Janice S., who enjoyed Agility 2 with Turbo
Andrea is the epitome of positive reinforcement. Bella is a herding dog that listens to her own drummer. Andrea was creative and figured out how to work with Bella and to always make it a positive learning experience. Bella always loved to go to "school" and learned even when she didn't know it. Front desk was always very helpful, Liz helped us pick out toys and treats that were very appropriate, and the computer system never failed me. Thanks
- Richard Nicewonger, who enjoyed Half Hour Individual Training with Bella
What a fabulous experience. Andrea is awesome and has great common sense tips for dealing with frustrating training issues. Our 75 pound puppy, Edie, is a wild beast, and Andrea trained BOTH of us so that we could all have more fun. We all benefited from her straight forward, well organized, simple training. I would highly recommend Andrea and her friendly team to any prospective customer.
- Amy King, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & Obedience 2 with Edie
Digby loves these classes and has more self confidence now. Everyone at the Zoom Room is so nice and friendly.

We had an excellent experience and highly recommend Zoom Room!!
- George Vorpahl, who enjoyed Obedience1 and 2 with Brody
Andrea literally has my dog eating out of her hand. I learn something important and new about how to be good at training my dog every time I go -- no kidding! She works with me on Milo's particular problems ... like his fondness for chasing skateboards ... and her solutions are practical, easy and effective. Milo also finds his favorite toys at the zoom room. Milo and I both look forward to spending time together at the Zoom Room and we are able to use the things we learn there when we are out in public. It has been a great experience for both me and my dog.

We love the Zoom Room! We are so happy that the sign caught our eye one day driving down El Camino and later we stopped in and checked it out. It's been such a wonderful experience for us and our dog. Great fun, good bonding, and he's learning cool stuff and has been become better behaved overall since attending. Everyone else is nice in the classes, and all of the instructors are top notch. All the staff at the Belmont Zoom Room are super friendly, helpful and nice. It's always a pleasure to attend class, and our dog Elvis looks forward to it all week :) We can tell by how excited he is when we pull up out front!
I also enjoy the well-chosen treats, dog food and toys offered at Zoom Room. At first, I thought they would be crazy marked-up because it was such a specialized store, but after comparison shopping with the prices at Pet Food Express, we were happy to see the dog food was the same price at both locations. Even the squeak tennis balls are the same cost. It makes it really convenient to pick up food and toys when we're already at the Zoom Room for class. The dog food and toy selection is really well-thought out and they have great products, such as the hide-a-squirrel squeaker hut and the special agility length slip-over leashes.
We recommend Zoom Room frequently to our friends at the dog park and to people who stop us on the street to comment on what a handsome and well-behaved dog we have!
Keep on rocking on.
Hugs and tail wags,
Courtney, Earl and Elvis the Corgi/Basset
ps- Earl would like to mention that he really appreciates the hot coffee at class. :o)

We have had a fantastic experience at Zoom Room (Belmont). Andrea has given the whole family the skills to begin training our puppy. We have made huge progress in the few lessons we have had...I say we as it is very much a case of training the human how to interact with the dog :) Highly recommended!
- Luna's family, who enjoyed Puppy 1/private/gym session with Luna
Andrea is an excellent instructor. She is patient, funny and non judgemental when the dogs misbehave. If something isn't working with Ginger she calmly comes over and shows me how she does it and inevitably Ginger follows her command. I learn best by being shown so this method is perfect for me. I am confident that I will have a very well behaved dog that will be enjoyable for me and the people I am with. We still have a lot of work so I will be signing up for more classes. Ginger loves the agility class and we look forward to doing more tricks.

Fun class, and Max is always excited to get there and start. Lot's of tail-wagging. I like seeing how he remembers things from one week to the next. I'm very glad you moved into the neighborhood!
- Julie B., who enjoyed Agility 1 and 2 with Max
We always have lots of fun at Zoom Room! One quick suggestion: more puppy playtimes (for pups under 4 months) would be nice. Before Petunia had all her shots, I was really starved for chances for her to get her wiggles out playing with other pups in a safe environment. A Dog's Life in Palo Alto has a nice group on Saturdays, but a regular Sunday (or weekday!) time at Zoom Room would be appreciated, and a nice avenue for class recruitment as well.
- Jessica, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool, Obedience, Agility, Tricks, Meetups, Private gym with Petunia
Excellent!!! Andrea is very caring, and overall very professional. Princess Bella loves her. I have hired trainers and paid a lot of money however this the first time that Bella has learned all the commands so quickly. I am very pleased that Bella is taking more classes and she will continue going, even just to hang out.
- Hilda Oebegozo, who enjoyed Obidience 1 and Shy Dog Workshop with Princess Bella
The group classes were very enjoyable! The classes were well organized and all participants (humans and dogs) got some individual attention.
- Lori, who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2, Agility 1 and Tricks with Bindi
My dog and I learned a lot and had lots of fun. Thank you Zoom Room!
Mia, my boyfriend and I love attending to the private agility classes. Andrea makes it a fun and enjoyable experience, being patient with us when showing how to train Mia and very loving and respectful of Mia's physical limits and well being. I have gone through 5 classes so far and I am totally getting a new package of classes.
