Meet Rachel

Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) 
Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT)
Fear Free Certified Professional (FFCP)

I'm Rachel Callery, and I'm the Head Trainer and Behavior Consultant for Unleash ATL. My methods draw on both the science of behavior and the practical experience needed to help people meet their own goals with their dogs. My clients frequently note my gentle, patient, and insightful teaching style with their dogs and their families.


My mother is a veterinarian and her career sparked my interest in animal behavior and communication at a young age. I loved assisting in her clinic and helping the animals de-stress before their exams!


I attended the University of Georgia to study Psychology for my undergraduate degree with an emphasis on Animal Behavior. I entered UGA's Primate Cognition and Behavior Lab as a research assistant, and also performed comparative research in UGA's Infant Lab. I graduated in 2013 with a BSc in Psychology, and dual minors in Cognitive Science and Biology. After earning my bachelor's degree, I moved to Atlanta to join my doctoral program at Georgia State University. While continuing my research in animal behavior, I also began dog training professionally in 2014.


While I loved the rigor of my academic environment, I knew I wanted a more hands-on career in behavioral work. In 2017 I stepped away from research to embrace full-time training. It's been the most rewarding and challenging passion! Nothing is more fulfilling than seeing my canine clients making progress, meeting their training goals, and developing more understanding with their humans.

Meet Kelly

Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) 

Welcome to the magical world of canine communication! I'm Kelly Fenwick, Associate Trainer with Unleash ATL, and a passionate advocate for our canine cohabitants. My journey began in 2016 at the Humane Society of Summit County, Ohio, where I  dedicated my evenings to understanding and aiding our four-legged friends. In college I studied business and created a venture dedicated to exploring canine body language detection utilizing biometric sensing to indicate dogs' comfort.  

In 2021, life brought me to Atlanta, where I teamed up with Rachel. Under her mentorship, I honed my skills and embraced the philosophy that learning should always be clear, fun, and engaging for both dogs and their humans. I achieved my CPDT-KA certification in September 2023.


Beyond my professional life as a dog trainer, I am an advocate for compassionate care towards our animal companions. This commitment was deeply inspired by my beloved golden retriever, Mia Marie, and further enriched by my experiences with the wonderfully diverse dogs I met at the shelter. While I can't pick a favorite breed (I love them all!) I find joy in discovering the unique traits of each new dog I meet. 

I look forward to being a part of your dog training journey, helping you and your canine companion understand each other better, and setting the stage for a lifetime of fun and mutual respect!

Meet Grizzly

Grizzly is the Unleash ATL puppy-mentor and mascot!


He enjoys helping with training and will often assist in sessions to set a good example for my canine students or help work with dogs who are afraid of other dogs. 


When he's not working, Griz loves to swim, go on hikes around Atlanta, and learn new things. Grizzly's most recent accomplishment has been learning to scent-track and indicate the location of my car keys!
