Callie and I have a lot of fun learning tricks. She came to me as a shy little rescue; her confidence level has increased and she found that working is fun and people are friendly. Great experience.

- Vikki Ogden, who enjoyed Tricks class with Callie

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!

We had an excellent experience and highly recommend Zoom Room!!

- George Vorpahl, who enjoyed Obedience1 and 2 with Brody

A+ all around. Zoom Room is a wonderful experience. The business model is perfect, which lets us schedule nonconsecutive classes around our busy schedules. The teachers are excellent - always positive, never punitive. Scouty and I love our teacher Evelyn. She is professional, warm and very personable - always makes classes fun.

- Bonnie King, who enjoyed Agility 1,2,3 with Scout

Lots of fun! A terrific staff.

- David Silver, who enjoyed Agility 2, Obedience 2, Private Gym with Maddie

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

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 have enjoyed working with your instructor's. We have gotten lots of positive feedback for dakots.Dakota loves going to zoom room interacting and socializing with the other puppies and dogs.We are very thankful for being able to have such a positive environment for Dakota.

- Nancy DeNardi, who enjoyed recall with Dakota

Liz is always a wonderfully enthusiastic trainer who genuinely cares about Novo and works with me on his special issues. She makes accommodations to customize the class for Novo and the other dogs in class so everyone's happy. That's not always easy to do but Liz does it with flair, patience, and a smile! Novo loooves Liz...and Andrea too! :-)

- Katarina Koster, who enjoyed Obedience 3 with Novo

Loved it- will be signing up for more classes!

Love Zoom Room Belmont.

- Courtney Greene, who enjoyed Come When Called with Elvis

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

I have taken a number of dog classes through the many years and Zoom Room in Belmont is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The staff is always polite and very knowledgeable and I enjoy the spacious room and class size is not over whelming. I would encourage others to try it out. Thank you all at Zoom Room in Belmont, Calif.

- Barbara Clarke, who enjoyed Obedience 123 with Shayna

Good classed upbeat fun instructors. Would like a little more emphasis on teaching dogs not to jump up as part of the basic manners courses. We are all learning better manners every day!

- lisa ratusz, who enjoyed begening manners 1 & 2 with cora

I appreciate the staff's patience, positive training, helpful training tips.

- Lillette Solari, who enjoyed Shy dog, scent work, tricks with Sean

I really like your classes because each person works in their space or one or two at a time. I think it is a much better learning environment than to have all the dogs moving at once on each other's tails.

- Kitty Norwood, who enjoyed Obed.3 CGC with Arlo

LOVE IT .. love everyone there... It is a great place to take Raindrop.. we all get to socialize and meet other great dog lovers. So happy we decided to try you out. We are now going to be life timers. :)

- Lori Skender, who enjoyed doggy social,agility,obedience,come when called with Raindrop

Both Brody and I have had a great time! You are always greeted with a friendly face and it is so nice coming to a place where you know the staff all love what they do and especially the pooches! So far I have only worked with Evelyn and she is amazing! She is so sweet with all thIMG_1525.PNGe dogs and Brody loves her, especially when he gets extra treats. They thoroughly teach you the basics so your pup is fully capable to move onto the next level! Our goal is first and foremost for Brody to have fun, but eventually would love for him to be in the Agility League and he's having a great time getting there! Thanks to everyone who works at Zoom Room, you guys are great!

- Alex, who enjoyed Agility 1/ Agility 2/ Private Gym with Brody

Lisa was a very positive and informative instructor. She worked patiently with each dog and owner to develop good habits. Her suggestions helped all of us to learn about appropriate behavior. At each class she would also tell us about some interesting article she had read concerning dogs.

- Barbara Regan, who enjoyed Obedience 1 with Libby

The agility courses have created a connection between Lulu and me that far surpasses our afternoon walks and weekend hikes. She is so excited when we arrive at Zoom Room and can't wait to see all of her favorite people. Evelyn is an awesome instructor - she truly cares about the dogs & their owners and walks through each step of the course to make sure we're doing everything correctly. The agility class is such a fun way to bond and exert energy in a controlled and rewarding environment.

- Brett Cicerone, who enjoyed agility 1-3 with Lulu

Wonderful. So helpful with a puppy. Welcoming. Understanding and knowledgeable. The individual sessions have really worked on the ongoing problems.

- Maggie B., who enjoyed Puppy Social, puupy obedience, obedience 1, 2 & 3. Individual with Brik

Good class and is challenging.

- Raymond Lee, who enjoyed Obedience, Agility with Roxy

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.

- Stella Hwang & Phil King, who enjoyed Scent Workshop with Hope

Lady and I LOVE Zoom Room's agility classes! Our instructor Evelyn is just great - she has so many personalized suggestions for keeping each dog focused on the obstacles we're practicing. Lady always leaves class bright and happy - and ready for a nice long nap before the next round. :)

- Megan E, who enjoyed Agility classes (Agility 3) with Lady

Great class, love the way they train.

- Karen S. Vincent, who enjoyed Obedience Level 2 with Gus

We love going to classes at the Zoom Room. We love scheduling online. We love we can walk to class. Cooper has progressed better than expected thanks to help from the teachers on sticky points. He gets so excited when we go in the door, he knows he's going to have fun... and lots of treats. We also do a lot of our shopping there, food, treats and toys. Great stuff. You came to our neighborhood before we ever thought of getting a dog and I didn't think much of it but now I am so grateful you're here and it makes me like living in this neighborhood even more. Thank you!

- Melissa W., who enjoyed Obedience 1, 2 and 3 with Cooper

I am very pleased with the guidance and training that I got from Andrea at Zoom Room. I am making good progress in training my dog and addressing her behavior challenges. In addition to providing good verbal instructions and hands on assistance, Andrea and her team also wrote down the instructions, which I frequently reference. Andrea is also very responsive to email questions and is very supportive.

A big part of learning how to train my dog is understanding her issues, how she thinks, and how each training tool will assist. I am continually working with my dog and it is a kick when I see that we are making headway.

Also, it is fun to take classes at Zoom Room. Andrea and the other staff are very warm and upbeat. I always look forward to going there.

- Jonathan, who enjoyed 1:1 Training (4 classes) with Suzie

Fun times at the Zoom Room with Gus!!!! Gus loves all the staff at the Zoom Room, he can't get out of the car fast enough when we arrive. He is all wiggles and wags!

Great bonding experience for us too. Thank you ZOOM ROOM TEAM!

- Jan Chavis, who enjoyed Scent Training, Urban Herding, Obedience 1, Puppy Preschool, First Aid with Gus

Andrea is vey positive, energetic trainer. Sean and I both learned a lot. Sean is becoming more out-going dog.

- Lillette solari, who enjoyed Private training with Sean

Zoom Room, Belmont is the BEST. Cody and I have had so much fun in all the classes. The Instructors are all GREAT. The facility is always very clean and welcoming. I can't recommend it highly enough!!

- Shelley A. Aldridge, who enjoyed Obedience1, 2 and 3. Agility 1, 2, 3 and currently in Agility 4. with Cody

We love our classes at Zoom Room! Evelyn is a great and positive trainer. She makes sure that every dog can learn at her own pace. Emma can't wait for her next class and is always excited to go to Zoom Room!

- Andrea, who enjoyed Agility with Emma

Couldn't be happier with our experience at Zoom Room! It's easy to make an appointment, it's coveniently located, our dog loves to attend class and the staff is fabulous.

- Debbie, who enjoyed Obedience 1 with Cooper

Catcher and I both look forward to and enjoy our time at the Zoom Room. The Instructors are excellent and patient. We also enjoy meeting the other dogs with their owners. We could not ask for more.

- Don Scrivner, who enjoyed Agility with Catcher

It was great! I really enjoyed seeing Nick fly through the agility course without reservation. Andrea and the other instructor (forgot name, sorry!) were both excellent instructors and patient with my hyper dog who often has a mind of his own. He advanced through new equipment really quickly, I look forward to more private instruction in the future.

- Colleen Kaiser, who enjoyed Private Agility with Nicklas

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

- Liz Silver, who enjoyed Puppy Agility with Caddie

Great experience . Like the teachers . Very patient and thorough .

- Karen budgick, who enjoyed Obedience 1 2 with Rosco

Andrea is awesome! She took the time to research the best approach on how to handle my dogs issues then explained how to handle it to me. Then we did hands on training to help me identify my dogs thresholds and use the tools I'm learning so I could practice and use them at home! She's a lifesaver!

- Sue L, who enjoyed Private training with Lexie

Andrea was wonderful with Buttons, but especially with me who needed most of the training. I learned alot.

- Suzanne Boedeker, who enjoyed Training with Buttons

Had a very good time. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful.

- JOY C., who enjoyed ob 1 with DASH

We truly enjoy classes taught by the teachers. Even if Chuey doesn't do well in any particular area, the teachers are positive & have given me tools to practice with him, & have a great sense of humor. They're kind, special wonderful people & we love bringing him there & spending time there & taking classes.

- Ramona & Chuey, who enjoyed Agility 4, agility league, urban herding, tricks 1 classes with Chuey

It has been great having Rocky be a part of such a wonderful school. Everyone has participated in Rocky success. And I am sure that if Rocky could talk he would tell every single one of you guys. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

- Martha plaza, who enjoyed Obedience 1, obedience 2, obedience 3 and agility 1 and now agility 2 with Rocky

I have had a wonderful experience at the Zoom Room, Belmont. Cody and I have so much fun there! I like it so much that even though Cody received his Canine Good Citizen Certificate, I still take him back to Obedience 3 every few weeks to keep him sharp. The Agility classes are awesome. All the staff members (Andrea, Evelyn, Liz, Maggie, Ivano and Chitra) are excellent! Go ZOOM ROOM!!!

- Shelley A. Aldridge, who enjoyed Obedience 1, 2, 3. Agility 1, 2 and currently in 3. with Cody

The Zoom Room has become such an important & pleasurable part of our lives. It's so awesome to see how much Chuey enjoys doing agility. The classes are fun for owners & dogs, challenging & a great work out. Even my daughter who enjoyed watching Chuey & I in class & thought that it looked so fun, starting doing classes with him too! I love all the teachers. They're friendly, kind, great with the dogs, & teach the best classes. The classes are always fun, challenging, & we always leave with smiles on our faces, & looking forward to the next class. One of the best things about Belmont's zoom room is how kind, supportive, caring & friendly everyone is. It's such a warm, friendly & easy going environment. It's exactly the kind of place where you want to go to have fun, learn, & spend quality time with your dog! The teachers are patient, helpful & caring, & all the other participants in the classes & agility league applaud every other dog & dog owner's efforts. Even Chuey has become best buddies with every dog that's been in his class & in the league, & gets super excited to see them. In life with busy, stressful schedules, having weekly classes & league at the Zoom Room is one of the highlights of our week, & something that we always look forward to! I'd recommend the Zoom Room to everyone who loves spending time with their dog, & to anyone who's looking for fun, worthwhile classes that both their dog & they will enjoy!

- Ramona, who enjoyed Agility 4, Agility League with Chuey

I had a great experience, we learned a lot and had to a of fun too! I will definitely be back for some private gym time in the future! Andrea was awesome, and we spent most of our last session with Evelyn (I think? Bad memory!) and she was also wonderful! I know Cooper had a great time and I can't wait to do more with him!

- Anna Groeger, who enjoyed Private obedience/agility training with Cooper

We are very happy at the Zoom Room! The classes are extremely helpful and Panini is learning a lot. We really hope there are more Therapy Dog classes in the near future!!

- Victoria B, who enjoyed Obedience 3, Therapy Dog with Panini

Andrea was great with Scooby. We learned many valuable techniques to continue working with him and his fear based leash aggression.

- Nicole Lynch, who enjoyed Private Training with Scooby

Love. We always have a great time. Andrea has a very positive energy and knows her stuff.

- Tina Shakour, who enjoyed Agility, Scent, Urban Herding with Zuko

We love the agility class, it's a great way to keep our puppy trained and occupied since he has too much energy! The instructor is very patient!

- Karen S, who enjoyed Agility 1 with MacGyver

Great experience! Love Zoom Room - really clear instructions, lots of skills and time to practice, and friendly atmosphere.

- Clara Bennett, who enjoyed Obedience 2 with Zucca

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

I love Zoom Room, and all the trainers are very nice and supportive! Jazzy is an Aussie mix and a bit high strung. The agility has enabled her to use her considerable energy and smarts in a constructive way. I think it has calmed her down, and helped with her confidence. I would recommend it to anyone!

- Beth Kabala, who enjoyed Agility 2 with Jazzy

Great positive training experience

- Jill Sands, who enjoyed Shy Dog with Sierra

I'm so glad we found the Zoom Room! Our dog is learning a lot, and so am I. Great training, nice facilities, and lots of fun!

- Cathy Ringstaff, who enjoyed Canine Good Citizen/Obedience 3 with Moose

Loved it! Andrea was so gentle and encouraging with Daisy and me. She was so knowledgeable about our particular needs and helped us in a very professional yet personal manner. Daisy really seemed to enjoy the classes and she learned a lot, as did I.

- Sharon, who enjoyed Private sessions - agility and behavior. with Daisy

Mikko very much enjoys classes at Zoom Room
Belmont. The instructors make it fun and practical.

- Luba Boyko, who enjoyed Obedience 2 with Mikko

Have really enjoyed the classes - instructors are very good at explaining the commands and teaching method. The "social" hours are a great deal too! So far, so good.

- Kim De Benedetti, who enjoyed Obedience 1 with Rambo

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

Moose and I really enjoy the classes that we have been taking. The emphasis on training ME, as opposed to directly training my dog, is very helpful, since I can use these skills and practice at home. The teachers are excellent. They communicate strategies very well, clearly love dogs, and seem to genuinely enjoy their interaction with clients.

- Cathy R., who enjoyed Obedience 2 and 3 with Moose

Chitra is a very caring and professional trainer. My dog loves coming to our private training sessions. My dog, a lab/shepard mix, started at 1 yr old shortly after being rescued by me. Her biggest issues are her fear of other dogs and no apparent training. We have come a long way in our 9 weeks. Sofie is practicing counter conditioning with Maverick, has learned all the basic skills of obedience 1 & 2 while in private sessions & loves agility training we do at the last portion of class! Her confidence is growing by leaps & bounds. She now walks on a leash, does sit/lay/stay and leave it & doesn't destroy my house when I leave her up to 4 hrs! This is quite an improvement. Thank you Chitra and Zoom Room!

I would like to see discounts offered for seniors or those who take on-going classes however.

- Linda Ferreira, who enjoyed Private Training-starting 3rd session with Sofie

Great experience. Andrea is very patient and creates a fun environment for both the owners and the dogs.

- Vicky Dunn, who enjoyed Loose Leash Walking and Obedience 1 with Petey

It's all been positive. Everyone in Belmont is knowledgeable, attentive, adaptable and, most important, patient! Abby and I have received terrific service, instruction and advice.
Big fan.

- Wendy L., who enjoyed Obedience 1-3, agility with Abby

We love it! Zoom Room is so much fun and the staff is so nice!

We're having a great time.

It would be nice if the dogs could be off-leash more, especially if the class only has 2 or 3 dogs.

Overall, you're terrific and we're glad we found you!

- David Silver, who enjoyed Obedience 1, Urban Herding, Obedience 2, Agility 1 with Maddie

Great. Like the class a lot. Everyone is nice and training my dog and ME is fantastic. Thanks!

- Don Traeger, who enjoyed Agility 1/2 with Maverick

Puppy Preschool was great for socialization and interacting with other puppies; the classes structured appropriately.

Puppy Obedience - not impressive, seeing as the classes are rolling and not fixed you do not build on skills week to week versus a 4 or 6 week class would allow you the chance to see the growth

- Les McGee, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool / Puppy Obedience with Sam and Ace

Turbo loves agility training at Zoom Room!

- Janice S., who enjoyed Agility 2 with Turbo

We love every time we take a class with Beau at Zoom Room! Liz and Evelyn took us through Obedience 1 and 2, and our first Agility 1 class was just as great! We know that getting ourselves trained is as or more important than training our awesome dog. I'm so glad we picked Zoom Room. I look forward to the many classes we will continue to take!

- Elizabeth Lyster, who enjoyed OBedience 1, Obedience 2, Agility 1 with Beau

Very good
Classes are good fun for the dogs and for us.
Like the build up of skills and challenge for the dogs - they always come away tired but having had fun and been challenged.

- Peter Walmsley, who enjoyed Agility 3 with Calix @ Eres

Always the best. We receive personalized instruction and feel we are a member of the Zoom Room family.

- Don Scrivner, who enjoyed Agility with Catcher

Lisa is an excellent trainer! She is very patient with both the dogs and owners. She gives careful directions and demonstrates the behaviors with the pups. She helps the owners to address individual needs. With her guidance, we are learning positive ways to train our pet.

- Barbara Regan, who enjoyed Puppy Pre-school and Puppy Obedience with Libby

We love the Zoom Room! Classes are great, fun, and the entire staff is wonderful. I love that the whole focus is on making learning fun for the dogs and positive reinforcement. I've already recommended Zoom Room to both friends and my mom's dog trainer. Can't wait until our next class!

- Melissa Bruce, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool, Puppy Obedience, Puppy Agility with Axel

My dog has become more confident,a bit less shy. THe clicker method is a way for me to make a connection of rewarding my dog in a more timely manner.

- Lillette solari, who enjoyed Shy Dog with Sean

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.

- Bertha delanda, who enjoyed Personal training with Hiccup

My husband and I enjoyed the class and it was very beneficial for our dog. We liked learning the positive reinforcement techniques with treats.

- PAT, who enjoyed puppy training 1 & 2 with JACK

The entire experience has been wonderful! Well-designed bushiness model, friendly, professional staff, wonderful classes. Love the flexibility of being able to buy classes in a module format, and then schedule them around my busy schedule. The instructors are all very positive, friendly and down to earth, which makes the classes fun. Perfect!

- Bonnie King, who enjoyed Orientation, Evaluation, Obedience 1, Agility 1, Agility 2 with Scout

A-1! Andrea really knows how to connect to my dog.

- Bertha, who enjoyed Private training with Hiccup

Great all the way around. Instructors are very skilled and conscientious; importantly, they are passionate and can communicate well with both canines and humans.

- Liz Silver, who enjoyed Agility, obedience with Caddie

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)

- Courtney G, who enjoyed Agility 3, "Doom Room" Howlween Party, Obedience 2, private lessons, open gym with Elvis

It was top notch! Hiccup loves to learn and is gulping up anything I teach him. Andrea has really taught us how to understand our dog.

- Bertha, who enjoyed Private training with Hiccup

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.

- Camila Egidio, who enjoyed Agility private training with Mia

Always fun. Great tools to help both young and old! Our older dog felt left out that the puppy was getting all this special attention so she too, quickly advanced to be in Obedience 3 with her partner in crime!!! I only wish I had more time to spend with the pups here! As a local veterinarian, I am very impressed, and I refer all my clients - there's something for everyone! Favorite trick we still use ..."Touch!"

- Jessie Y, who enjoyed Obedience 1, 2, 3, private gym with BZ, Magnus

Moog loves agility class and will be overjoyed to enter Agility II.

- Barbara C-P, who enjoyed puppy agility with Moog

Chewy and I love the Zoom Room. He eagerly looks forward to both the classes and the Agility League. It is great exercise for both of us!

- Barbara Tallent, who enjoyed Agility with Chewy

Thank you for the tremendous support you have been with my new French Bulldog puppy, Enzo. Everyone at the Zoom Room, Belmont has been a truly valuable resource. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the advice, and your willingness to share your techniques to make sure Enzo (and I) are as successful as possible. I'm learning about a whole new world of care and fun for my four legged friend and we are always excited for our visits (and lots of treats)!

- Sherrie, who enjoyed Puppy Obedience, Obedience 2, Puppy Preschool, Agility, private Lesson with Vincenzo Pepito (Enzo)

What a great class! We had so much fun and the dogs actually got it!!!!

- Jan Chavis, who enjoyed Advance Scent with Gus

Overall very good. Since Enzo is still a puppy, I try not to get frustrated. He seems to catch on to some things quickly, others I think he understands but doesn't obey if he doesn't "feel" like it. He will probably outgrow this behavior as he gets older.

- Ann Hugger, who enjoyed Obedience 1, and started 2 with Enzo

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.

- Lisa Hills

We love Zoom Room and we LOVE Evelyn. She is an awesome teacher - always upbeat, constructive, patient and fun! She seems to know just the right technique for every dog and owner. We also love Sara, who always greets us with a big smile and smothers Scouty with affection. Zoom Room is a very special place - I tell a lot of people about it. Suggestion: start markerting Zoom Room T-shirts that we can buy and wear!

- Bonnie King, who enjoyed Agility 4 with Scout

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

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.

- cathy Boe, who enjoyed Agility 4 with kitt

Fantastic! Always fun and the instructor is excellent. Looking forward to many more classes.

- Don Scrivner, who enjoyed Agility 3 with Catcher


- Jan Chavis, who enjoyed puppy preschool, Puppy Obedience, Obedience 2, Puppy Agility with Gus

Milkko enjoys his classes at ZoomRoom.
He especially likes the A-Frame, and the treats
He gets as a reward for coming "Home"on command.

- Luba Boyko, who enjoyed Agility DogTricks & Obedience with Mikko

We love ZoomRoom! Staff is wonderful, warm and welcoming. They really "get" dogs - Oski has learned so much but more importantly my kids and I have benefitted enormously in our relationship with him. We now know how to talk so he will listen :)

- Hannah, who enjoyed Puppy preschool, private agility, obedience. with Oski

We love training at the Zoom Room. I love being able to make our own schedule and book online, we walk to class, classmates have all been friendly and supportive, Cooper has learned faster than we expected, instructors have all been able to help with any sticky points and we love the products available for purchase. We're so lucky to have had the Zoom Room open so near us not long before getting a dog.

- Melissa W., who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2 with Cooper

We took a basic class to get checked in for Obedience 1; Kale struggles with the noise and stimulation of being indoors, so we went for some private trainings with Andrea to teach me how to recognize her stress signals, as well as make sure her Obedience 1 and Agility 1 was covered. Its been great fun for us both, and we're starting some Agility 2 in private sessions as well.

I also did a level 2 agility class and loved it. I'm sure having my reactive dog isnt fun for everyone, but we had a great time, and I'm learning a lot! Kale has so much fun doing all the 'work', and we've been incorporating some of them in our daily walks making it fun for all!

- Gayathri Kamath, who enjoyed Private Training with Kale

We had a lot of fun and a good taste for what the scent works is all about. Andrea was very accommodating for my dog, who needs to be behind a screen to keep his arousal in check. We would love to do more and build on the skills he learned in class.

- Colleen Kaiser, who enjoyed Scent workshop with Nicklas

Lots of fun. A terrific staff!

- David Silver, who enjoyed Obedience 2, Agility 2 with Maddie

Very professional, nice , love animal , have special touch

- Alla alperin, who enjoyed Private with Bim

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.

I've been really enjoying the classes at the Zoom room. I really like that the instructor has been putting a cushion under the teeter--it really helps my noise-sensitive cattle dog, who's not used to agility indoors, not leap off the teeter when it hits. One suggestion I had, it may be fun to have everyone share treats with each other (if their pets don't have allergies, of course). It's a way to add variety to your treat pack--my dog is always sniffing after other people's treats and vice versa.

The class was great! Our dog was a rescue and is very scared of people. The class gave us a variety of tools to help his comfort level around people. It is still a work in progress. We are really encouraged with what we have seen though.

- Hugh, who enjoyed Shy Dog with Bandit

My dog is very fast. Evelyn was so helpful and kept up with him. He loves coming to class.

- Carol, who enjoyed Agility with Rudy

Having joined Zoom Room and started the obedience puppy program with two puppies simultaneously, we have greatly enjoyed our experience. The instructors are knowledgable and give outstanding one and one training with enthusiasm and positive reinforcement.

- Vanessa Cordova, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool/Pet CPR/Puppy Obedience/Private Gym with Sadie

Both of my instructors were very patient and helpful :0)

Andrea is awesome and professional every time. She is patient, kind, and has a sense of humor. She is an excellent teacher. She really seems to understand my dog and how to train him. These are the reasons most classes have waiting lists.

- Tracy Schwarz, who enjoyed Obedience 2, Agility 2, private session with Finley

We LOVE Zoom Room! The easy-going staff makes it fun to participate. We enjoy the flexibility of multiple class times from which to choose, as well as purchasing a pack of classes and not being tied into a set time each week. Also have met some great people/dogs along the way!

Everyone at the Zoom Room is fantastic. They are all so great with our dog Auggie given that he has extreme anxiety issues. He loves his time there. All the staff that extra length to ensure that we all feel comfortable and safe. It's lots of fun and Auggie grows in confidence every lesson. He's a happy dog at the Zoom Room.

- Zoe Harris, who enjoyed Private agility training with Auggie

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

- Sheila Munini, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & 2, Agility 1 with Lucy

Awesome Red loved working with Liz and so did i

- Sue siegman, who enjoyed Private training for tricks with Red

Very positive! I've recommended others to Zoom Room and really enjoyed the classes. My pups are always happier when they are in training.

- Tina S, who enjoyed Agility 1-4, Nose work, Urban Herding, Obedience with Zuko and Autumn

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!

- E. L., who enjoyed Agility 1, Agility 2, Scent Workshop, Urban Herding Workshop with Maya

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

Fun and helpful.

- Linda Ferguson, who enjoyed Basic manners and agility with Corky

Awesome all round. Great place, great training, great staff and my dog loves it here. He is a dog with some reactive issues and they really work with his needs. His confidence improves after every visit and he has a blast when he's doing agility.

- Zoe Harris, who enjoyed Private agility with Auggie

The Zoom Room is amazing and Andrea is fantastic!

- Rebecca, who enjoyed Private training with Goober

The staff is fabulous! They are kind, patient and always positive!

- Debbie, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & 2 (currently) with Cooper

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 group classes were very enjoyable! The classes were well organized and all participants (humans and dogs) got some individual attention.
My dog and I learned a lot and had lots of fun. Thank you Zoom Room!

- Lori, who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2, Agility 1 and Tricks with Bindi

The experience is always rewarding. We enjoy the people, the other dogs, and feel the instruction is the best. We cannot wait until the next scheduled class to do it again.

- Don Scrivner, who enjoyed Agility 4 with Catcher

Evelyn was so knowledgeable and put my mind at ease. Up to this point I seriously thought we were going to have to keep my pitty in the house forever. She helped me understand that my and my daughters reactions and actions were probably some of the reason why my dog was having issues. I was so impressed with her professionalism and knowledge that I'm shouting it out to everyone! THE STAFF AT ZOOM ROOM BELMONT are incredible. This was just by chance I bit the bullet and walked in. She made me believe that we can make decisions after the eval and that all is not lost. I'm excited to start getting our lives back in order and I will hopefully be able to include Cali in everything we do. I'm looking forward to being taught how to be a better owner and to have the control. I'm hoping we can heal our situation and enjoy out dog on and off the leash! THANK YOU EVELYN!

- April Matsu, who enjoyed Walk in for information with Cali

We love the Zoom Room and the encouragement and support we get from Liz and Andrea, they're wonderful trainers! We plan to take several of the fun classes like Tricks once we've completed the obedience training. The only things that I can add that may make it a bit easier is if the trainers would use a dog to demo what the exercise is, rather than just tell us. It would also be helpful if a list of the exercises for each level were made available, either as a handout or to download from website. I noticed there are materials for the advanced class so that's good. But again, we're loving Zoom Room and will make an obedient dog out of Novo sooner or later! :-)

- Katarina Koster, who enjoyed Obedience 1, 2, and currently in Good Canine. with Novo

Andrea was a great trainer! She was very patient with my shy dog. Andrea was constantly thinking "outside the box". If something didn't work, she would think of an alternative or go back to it later. She never forced Liza past her threshold. I could see, over time, Liza began to trust Andrea and made small progress every session.

Thank You for the great sessions!
