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. She purchased 5th Avenue Fido on October 31, 2019. Pamela has been rescuing, training and re-homing dogs since she was a teenager. She’s always believed in positive reinforcement and practices TCL — Time, Consistency and Patience —when caring for and training dogs.

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, 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. Or 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.

At 5th Avenue Fido, your furry family member won’t stay in a conventional cage or even a kennel. It has 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. There is also 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. You can have your dog bathed, groomed or nails buffed during daycare. Or 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. When a pup is trained, he grows into a confident, social family member. Basic obedience and puppy training is done by both Pamela and Evan, the Facility Manager and resident dog whisperer.

Stop in for a tour any time after 11 am and meet Pamela and Evan.

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