Dog Training Classes in Metro Detroit and Ferndale

Canine Middle School

About the Class

If your dog has graduated from Puppy Kindergarten C, Puppy Elementary School, or Canine Basics and is between 6 and 18 months, continue his or her education with this class. You can also enroll in this class directly, but we recommend taking Elementary School or Canine Basics first. In Canine Middle School we’ll work to develop your dogs social skills, your ability to read canine body language, and play lots of fun games. If your dog loves to play with other dogs but needs to work on “real life” skills, this class is for you! We will work on skills and cues like “turn and go” with distraction, recall from play, stay with distraction, leash walking and dog introductions! These are especially important things to help your playful adolescent grow into a social and well-mannered adult! After Canine Middle School, your dog is eligible to go onto Impulse Control or any of our sporting classes. Middle School graduates are also eligible to enter our Teen PAL program.
