Our experience with Unleash Fido could not have been better. We were struggling with our dog’s behavior and had no idea what to do next. After multiple consultations throughout the city we realized Unleash Fido provided an atmosphere that we didn’t see anywhere else. We knew our dog would be cared for and treated well while going through this life changing experience. Sebastian was our dogs trainer and we couldn’t have asked for a better match. He is thorough and knowledgeable and loved our boy like his own. He goes above and beyond what we expected of any training program. We cannot speak highly enough of Sebastian, Unleash Fido, the experience and the results! Thanks for giving our boy a fresh start!
We signed our 7 month old (wild) puppy for the puppy class and advanced off leash obedience. I called unleash fido because he was impossible to take on a walk, he would not walk, play tug of war with the leash and if he ever got away from me I would have to chase him to recover him. This is not my first dog, actually my 7th dog in all my life but he is by far the most stubborn and active dog I’ve ever experienced. In the house he would knock over furniture and run into glass doors, jump up on the counter and nothing I tried was working. I was having major puppy adoption regret. We love him like a child though so I brought my dog in for his evaluation at Unleash Fido and he was all over the room knocking things down and jumping on furniture but they said “we can handle this”. Well 4 weeks later I have a different dog! He listens to me, he performs commands sometimes before I even say them and I LOVE taking him on walks. We have had 2 family training sessions after his month long stay and our now 9 month old pup is now even listening to our seven year old! Unleash Fido was a game changer for us and I no longer feel anxious being around my own dog or out on walks. Macayla was our trainer and she checked in with us weekly, we were provided report cards with pics and videos of his progress, she recently even helped me readjust his collar when I popped into their office on a Sunday morning. Worth the investment and our dog seems happier now, he is proud of himself when we say “good boy” that tails wags and he seems so content! Thank you Unleash Fido and Macayla for all you have done for our boy!

Unleash Fido is the best money I have ever spent. I have a 3-year-old Australian Shepherd who loves to work and is overall extremely reactive to anything and everything. Walks were impossible and anxiety-provoking. He would lunge and bark at any car/bird/neighbor/dog and almost pull me over. We had tried trainers before and positive reinforcement but nothing seemed to work. McKayla ended up being my dog’s trainer for bootcamp, where he stayed for 5 weeks. I cannot say enough great things about her! She is extremely knowledgeable with working dog breeds. She knew my dog would be a challenge but took it head on. My dog is very attentive to me now and actually listens! Walks are enjoyable and I feel like I have taken some control back. McKayla is friendly and flexible with her schedule. She truly cares about the dogs she trains and wants to make sure the owners feel confident and knowledgeable. I would recommend McKayla and Unleash Fido to anyone and everyone!
