Our Story

5th Avenue Fido

Where Your Dog Will Feel At Home

After 32 years in Corporate, Pamela Zydel decided to follow her dream to work with dogs. So she purchased 5th Avenue Fido on October 31, 2019, striving to create a space where your dog will feel at home. Pamela has been rescuing, training and re-homing dogs since she was a teenager. She has always believed in positive reinforcement and practices TCL — Time, Consistency and Patience —when caring for and training dogs.

Since under Pamela’s ownership, 5th Avenue Fido has tailored its care based on each dog’s unique personality and needs. If your dog is extremely energetic, then he will play and engage with appropriately matched canine friends. If he is a little more reserved, then he may go in a less active group where his personality can shine. Perhaps he doesn’t like to play with canine friends. What then? Well, your dog can have play and cuddle time with staff. No dog is left out.

What We Offer

At 5th Avenue Fido, your furry family member won’t stay in a conventional cage or even a kennel. We have 48 sq foot cabins with ceramic tile floors and parents can bring personal belongings from home—like a blanket or favorite toy. Food and medication will be given at your request, at no additional charge. Additionally, there is a quiet room with a sofa for dogs who need a little tranquility or time to unwind from a busy morning or afternoon of play.

5th Avenue Fido has a full-service grooming salon with experienced pet stylists and bathers. Your dog can be bathed, groomed or nails buffed during daycare.  Otherwise, you can have a spa day for your pup on a day that’s convenient for your schedule.

Training is also offered at 5th Avenue Fido. Once a pup is trained, he grows into a confident, social family member. Basic obedience and puppy training is done by Pamela.

Stop in for a tour any time after 1p and meet Pamela.

5th Avenue Fido is where your dog will feel at home.
