Meaghan is the owner of Training at Unleashed, a partnership with exclusive training rights at Unleashed in Evanston since 2011. She studied canine social behavior and theory of mind in puppies at the University of Michigan and received her B.S. in 2010. Meaghan has worked with several experienced canine behaviorists including Dr. Barbara Smuts, Dr. Camille Ward, Maggie Fahner and Jeff Millman. She currently teaches obedience classes ranging from puppy play/socialization to introductions to agility and scent work. She also offers in-home private lessons for a variety of behavioral issues specializing in leash reactivity and aggression toward people entering the home.
For as long as Brian can remember, he has loved dogs and cannot imagine a life without them. That love led him to FetchFind Academy for dog training, where he spent two years learning positive reinforcement training and dog behavior. After a couple of years working with private clients, Brian began an apprenticeship at Unleashed in January of 2019 where he learned how to use his training expertise to lead group classes. Brian offers private lessons and teaches a variety of group classes at Unleashed.
We met Julie a couple of years ago when her Sheltie puppy, Kona, joined our puppy class. Since then we have seen Julie and her son Kieran every Saturday in FUNgility class with their dogs Kona & Maui. It didn't take long for Julie and Kieran to become part of the Unleashed family and we are thrilled that she has joined our training team. Welcome aboard Julie!!!
