We love our classes. Paddy always has a good time while learning.

Benji goes to Zoom Room for his puppy agility class. He likes it a lot because it means he gets to eat plenty of treats. I like it because he (and I) get a good workout.
Because he's a puppy, he's not exactly weaving through the poles; he just walks down the middle. He is also not that fond of the tunnel (although a few treats is all the encouragement he needs). But I get so excited when he jumps over the bar with his short little legs or goes up and down the A-frame.

Nicky loves her Agility class!

Erin is a fantastic instructor. She is also something of an expert on Aussies (of which Misty is one). Misty is a high energy puppy, and we have seen a major improvement in his doggy citizenship skills through these classes. I can't wait to take her next Agility 1 class!
- Steve Casper, who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2 with Misty
Erin White is an awesome instructor - so sad she is leaving for med school.
Erin does a great job pointing out minor issues, such as position and use of hands, positioning of the handler near obstacles, etc.

My puppy and I attended various puppy classes and we both enjoyed every minute!

We have been pleasantly pleased with all the classes and instructors at the Zoom Room.

In addition to taking Obedience 1, I also did a private lesson with my dog, Zoey. She is an 85 pound German shepherd. She is a dog that was in desperate need of socializing with everything. She is naturally afraid of things and was getting aggressive because of it. Angela, her trainer, worked very hard to accommodate her and gave several options for us to get past her fears. Zoey has made great strides and is doing much better with everything. I am so glad that Angela helped because Zoey was to the point of me being afraid to take her out of the house.

After having a good experience with the Canine Good Citizen test at the Hollywood Zoom Room, I found out about the new Zoom Room in Claremont, which was much closer for me. I was excited to continue Coco's training for the Therapy Dog certificate. I was not disappointed... The trainer covered many of the situations which we may encounter in the field, and the classes were fun for both of us. I'm happy to report that we passed our Delta Therapy Dog test the first time, with flying colors! Thank you Angela (& Stanley) for preparing us so well!

We loved it! Love seeing Cali make progress in class!

Ellie and I had a great time participating in Agility 1. She learned so much and it was a great outlet for her high energy level!

Sully and I have been by for puppy obedience and for puppy agility and I have to say I really enjoy the time I spend there with Sully. Sully passed puppy obedience in 4 classes and we're just starting in Puppy Agility to build his confidence.
This is truly a place where they train you to work with your dog and not just train your dog. The more you work with your dog outside of class the quicker they learn what you're asking for (of course). The classes are a little bit more free-flowing, it's drop-in and not based on a set schedule/curriculum, but you still get a lot out of it.
Zoom Room is one of a kind in this area and Angela is great, Sully loves her and I would definitely recommend Zoom Room.

Excellent training programs, and instructors. Dave taught Agility 3, and Angela taught Agility 2 before that. These were excellent classes for Sallie, who is a very loving but hyperactive grown-up puppy ( almost 1 year old). Both of these instructors know how to read animal behavior and were often able to prevent any negative interactions among the dogs. Sallie always announced her presence with excited barking when she arrived for class, but calmed down to do her routines.
- Sandra Stuckey, who enjoyed Agility 3 with Sallie Muddie Paws Stuckey-Hulll
It would be better to have the Agility Classes earlier in the day, because of fatigue after work. However both Sallie and I really enjoyed classes, and I may have learned more than Sallie.
I wish I had known about the Zoom Room when I had my previous dog. His life would have been much happier with this positive method of training. Titus is an extremely strong, high-energy Golden Retriever and a real challenge to train and control. But thanks to weekly classes at the Zoom Room, we are bonding, as owner-and-dog. I am learning a lot about how to motivate and train my canine companion. Titus is making progress with learning to be responsive and obedient, and we have made many dog and owner friends. I have recommended the Zoom Room to countless people---friends, casual acquaintances and people I meet at the dog park. Thank you, Angela, Gia and Jacob for the great help you are giving to people like me and to dogs like Titus.

My dog took the Therapy Dog Class and it was presented in a fun way, which she enjoyed. There is a great offering of classes that are not held anywhere in this area. The facility is state of the art. There is also a nice store that carries high quality dog foods, treats, toys and accessories that are hard to find. My dog loved her trainer, Angela. She is very patient and caring with the dogs and the training is always positive. I will soon be taking my other dog there for a class. If you are looking for a unique place to train your dog, go and check out Zoom Room. This area really needed a place like this!
- Diana M., who enjoyed Therapy Dog
We had a great experience and Angela was very calm about Cooper being so anxious in class. We need to work on her social skills more and take more classes. Perhaps Cooper needs private lessons. Or perhaps me :)
- Sophia Valentine, who enjoyed Puppy Preschool with Cooper
We have taken our dogs here for the large breed meetup and for reserved play time. Both of my dogs, large and small enjoyed their time here. They played with the agility equipment, met friends here, and found some great items in their store. Angela makes the most scrumptious doggy donuts. There were different types, soft, and obviously delicious based on how much the dogs loved them. We have a friend that likes this place too. His dog is taking classes. We are all looking forward to the Halloween party.

The Zoom Room is the Nordstrom's of dog training! The training space is huge unlike some of the pet store training areas. We took our boxer puppies to puppy kindergarten and they learned (or should I say, we learned) their names, how to relax, and overall socialization with other dogs. Our puppies graduated with flying colors, or should I say flying collars!
Since that time we have taken them to obedience classes (they really needed this one) and often take them on a Sunday to the Gym. Yes, gym. You can rent the space for 30 minutes for $10 and your dog or puppy plays in the gym. It is really cool. Oh, they also have "meet-ups" for dogs. This is like networking for your pet.
I can't say enough - the Zoom Room is the place to take your dog, if you love them. No other place compares.

We were wanting to treat the boys to something new and fun in honor of Ramsay's birthday, and found out that Zoom Room will let you rent their gym space for 1/2 hour increments. So on this hot Saturday afternoon, an air conditioned gym/play space sure beats the dog park! We signed up and had the whole play area to ourselves for 1/2 an hour! There's lots of agility equipment and toys (even skateboards!) that the dogs can use, as well as lockers, bathrooms, and coffee for the humans. Charlie did well going through the tunnel and up and down the platforms. He wasn't so thrilled with jumping hurdles. And Ramsay liked chasing the tennis ball around and up and down the platforms. Then I took out the treat bag, and suddenly they were circus dogs and could do anything for a treat (except skateboard)!
Unless your dog is hyper (or you), 1/2 hour is about the right amount of time. We were all pretty pooped out, especially me! It was a good workout! And they have a nice shop with lots of great doggie supplies. We picked up a cute treat canister and of course, more treats! Looking forward to coming back! Arrrrooorooroo!
P.S. Charlie started to get an attitude, so i enrolled him in some obedience classes to refresh his memory. He did great! We enjoyed the classes and working with Angela and Erin. Also did some agility classes too! Lots of fun!

My dogs and I love the Zoom Room. We have taken the obedience and agility classes (tunnels, jumping through tires, climbing, etc.). My dogs and I have learned so much from these classes and the learning was actually fun.
The "calm dog" workshop really helped my golden work through his anxiety issues. We have also attended the "obedience games" and "large breed meetup" events which the dogs just love.
The room is large, air conditioned and clean with lots of equipment, toys, fresh water and treats available. They also sell dog supplies including some unique "brain" training toys", raw goat milk, healthy food and treats and other cool training tools. I got some bowls to help my dogs slow down their eating and some no pull harnesses that work great. (They even helped me fit the harnesses.)
The trainers are quite knowledgeable and very patient. They are dog owners and lovers themselves and frequently have one of their dogs attending the classes. I am amazed at how well their techniques work and how easily the dogs learn in the classes.
I am amazed and appreciate how clean, safe and comfortable the environment is. As you can see, we really love the Zoom Room and attend as frequently as possible.

Angela is an amazing instructor! We have taken the Shy Dog class and Agility 1 with our dog, Riley, and Angela always goes out of her way to address individual concerns with us. She really understands dog psychology! We plan on taking many more classes with her. The facility itself is in the Old Schoolhouse in Claremont (right by Trader Joe's), so it is in a very safe area with easy parking. The storefront has lots of great toys and treats, which are perfect for a reward after a challenging class!
- Rebecca O., who enjoyed Shy Dog & Agility 1 with Riley
We just love zoom room! We go there with both of our goldens to buy all our food and toys. We have also done the "come when called" class and the "senior agility class". But the best part is the parties, they are the most fun!! We get to meet all the other puppies (dogs) and their owners.
Angela is always a BIG help when we need counseling with our dog, Tigger on his various "issues", anxiety, stealing,etc. I always suggest Zoom Room to my friends and to strangers I meet with dogs. GO ZOOM ROOM!!!!
- Dorene H, who enjoyed Come When Called, Intro to Agility, Pup-lates and tons of parties and meetups with Tigger and Cali
We had a good experience. Sarai is a rescue from the pound, so it was a little difficult training with other dogs since this causes her anxiety. But Gia worked with her, a couple of times one on one. She is definitely better, and with a little more training I think Sarai will be more comfortable around other dogs. I am planning on enrolling her in the calm down class.
- Felicia Borrero, who enjoyed obedience 1 with Sarai
It's been a great learning experience for Dreamer and myself. She has far exceeded my expectations on all that she has learned and everything is positive reward based. Our instructor is excellent and he makes the class fun for Dreamer. She loves to come to class and I enjoy it as much as she does.
- Diana Maberry, who enjoyed Pup-lates with Dreamer
Great experience. I'm learning a lot - my dogs are smarter than I am.
- Dorothy Egbert, who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2 with Buddy and Pup
Joi had a great time in agility. She seems to enjoy the courses, and it has given us a way to bond with our shy adopted rescue dog. Joi had a lot of fears and anxiety, and she has become much less suspicious of people and other dogs. She has become more outgoing and social with other dogs after attending agility 1 through 4 classes. The staff at the Zoom room are great! I would recommend agility for those who want to work on strengthening their leadership skills with their dog, and to help build a trusting relationship with their dog.
- Debbie H, who enjoyed Agility 4 with Joi
We LOVE the Zoom Room! Each class gives us valuable information that we are able to take with us and practice at home. Kobe loves

Going there and so do we!
The Therapy Dog course was geared toward helping dogs and owners prepare for the Delta Society certification. The instructor was very knowledgable and has a therapy dog that volunteers at a local hospital. The instructor is firm and friendly and I felt I gained the skills to work with my dog with confidence. Agility was great fun for my dog and she has gained a lot of confidence and we have continued on with Agility 2. Agility is great for shy, timid, submissive, mild, meek type dog personalities because it really brings them out of their shells. I could really see my dog's self confidence growing every week, enjoying herself, literally smiling from ear to ear, and just being proud of her ability to navigate around and on objects.

I had a great time! I was amazed at how well Nia responds when I work with her.
- Debra Figueroa, who enjoyed Obedience 1 with Nia
As a handler I enjoyed the class size because I felt I was receiving personal instruction every week. The activities were challenging and fun. Angela was very helpful and her postive feedback and encouragement was very important for me. I learned a great deal about myself and my dog during these sessions. The most important is that my dog and I are a better team now. Thank you!
- denise funk, who enjoyed Therapy Dog with Annie
Angela has been amazing! She really understands our dog's individual needs, and works with us to help us get the most out of each class. We will definitely take more classes with her!
- Matt E., who enjoyed Agility 1
Love it! It is a clean and safe environment, small classes. We have been attending various venues for the past year. Enjoy the meet and greet small dog gatherings.
- Virginia Corral, who enjoyed Puppy, Agility & Agility 1 with Mia
Dreamer and I love this class. It is really fun and a good bonding experience for us. She has gained so much confidence with the equipment and always has fun. There is a nice combination of agility, games, massage and stretching. I like that this is something I can do with my senior dog. Angela has a lot of patience working with Dreamer and has got her to overcome many fears she had of the equipment.
- Diana Maberry, who enjoyed Pup-lates with Dreamer
Angela has done a wonderful job over the past four months getting my dog to overcome some of his issues. He has improved a lot and I am hopeful it will continue.
- Christi, who enjoyed Private Training for Shy Dog and Agility with Tucker
Very positive experience. Gia was very helpful and gave good suggestions that helped me understand how to help Diva and Ozzy improve. The dogs enjoyed the classes as did my husband and I. When we say "training" they run to the door ready to go to class with enthusiasm. Gia is an excellent teacher and gives specific suggestions that work well and quickly.
- Kathryn Vickers, who enjoyed Obedience 1 and 2 with Diva and Ozzy
Paddy and I enjoy learning agility together. Angela is a patient and great instructor.

Just finished Agility 1 and moving on to Agility 2. Loving the classes. Angela is a great instructor. She is great with the dogs and truly wants all of us to be successful. I am also considering some of their other classes!
- Sylvia, who enjoyed Agility 1 and 2, Private Gym with Pepe
Really enjoyed it. Plan on continuing just for the fun of it.
- Beverly, who enjoyed Agility 3 with Sampson
I was very impressed. We did a variety of simple exercises that gently engaged the dogs and educated the owners. The exercises built on each other and, with plenty of treats and positive verbal support, my Lucy became more confident and less "suspicious" of the humans in the class. Once the dogs were comfortable Angela introduced "surprises" and helped each dog adapt at her own pace. By the end of the class all the dogs and handlers were friends. Lucy is less skittish around strangers and she continues to improve as we practice what we learned in class.
- Q. L. Pearce, who enjoyed Shy Dog with Lucia
GREAT trainer!!! My dog loves his agility classes!!!!
- D.C., who enjoyed Agility 2 with Donut
I loved the Zoom Room and my Dog Harley did too! I took her there to try an agility class, and it was tons of fun. We plan on signing her up for more classes in the very near future. The trainers were very nice and helpful, they have a cute little shopping area with treats, toys, food and accessories. I bought a few cute little alligator treats that my dog loved. Over all a very pleasant experience: if my dog is happy then I am happy!
- Mallory L., who enjoyed Intro to Agility with Harley
Erin is great and a lot of fun. Joi enjoys agility, and has become more comfortable with things in her environment that previously made her fearful. Joi has become more confident and comfortable in class as well as out of class.
- Debbie, who enjoyed Agility 1 & 2 with Joi
I just absolutely love their training facility and trainers. They are so supportive not only of my dog, but me too. They have provided amazing support and knowledge. When we, Lulu and I, have struggled, the trainers have gone out of their way to troubleshoot problems and be super supportive. For example, learning to down for my dog was difficult and we didn't know if it was a breed issue (doxies) or just this dog's issue. So, Gia searched out information outside of class and provided us with additional information to help us achieve this and move on. The staff and facility are amazing!
- Kris Barker, who enjoyed obedience 1, obedience 2, agility 1 with Lulu
My dogs love the Zoom Room and so do I. We have learned so much and have had a great time while learning. We have enjoyed every class and event we have attended.
- Jean, who enjoyed Obedience, Calm Dog, Agility, Games, Free Play with Jazz & Izzy
We enjoyed coming to this class. It was never boring and did not feel repetitive. I really enjoyed the individualized attention to correct my handling, and the extra support in training my dog on the equipment. As a teacher I differentiate instruction for my students, and for the first time feel like I received the same style of instruction here.
- Hollie, who enjoyed Agility 2 with Lola
We brought our 14 month old doberman here for obedience/manners classes with Gia.
GIA IS AWESOME!
She has a great communication style with pets and owners and her recommendations for our dog worked like a charm. Within a week, after incorporating some of Gia's suggestions into our daily routines at home (which were effortless and took little to no time), our dog's behavior had been powerfully impacted.
We hope to continue classes with Gia and are very confident that she will teach us and our dog all of the behaviors, tricks and discipline listed on their website. This place is definitely worth looking into!
- Keara D, who enjoyed Obedience 1 & 2 with Kcayla
I see tremendous improvement in my weimaraner puppy, Lucia. She is gaining confidence and she is excited to go to class. I'm also confident that she will be well-mannered when I take her to public places.
- Q. L. P., who enjoyed Come When Called
Very positive, enjoyable and insightfull. Learned and experienced first hand the value of positive re-enforcement.

Niko & I have enjoyed a great experience so far. We have moved on to Obedience 2, with Gia as the instructor.
