Drop Off Puppy Training Classes in Metro Detroit and Ferndale

Play And Learn (PAL)

Drop-Off Puppy Training

FIDO offers weekday drop-off puppy school

Fido offers weekday drop-off puppy training that goes beyond the typical on-leash style dog training class.  We call it Play and Learn (PAL) and it’s a science based canine training approach founded on the understanding that the more we compassionately socialize, train and condition puppies during puppyhood the better off they will be as adults.

Your puppy will spend PAL school time supervised by our trainers who will work on basic manners, handling, conditioning and rewarding good behavior in puppy group play. Regular potty breaks, nap times, and supervised group play will make your puppy happy and socially savvy. With a maximum of 12 dogs per day, we ensure your dog will get personalized attention to work on challenges you might be having at home or out in the world.

At PAL, your puppy will engage in group play as well as work with our trainers on:

  • Basic cues like sit, down and recall
  • Confidence gaining and socialization skills
  • Handling and conditioning
  • Potty training
  • Impulse control
  • Appropriate play

When you drop your puppy off at Fido you remain the key in the training equation. Be prepared to engage with our Trainers when you arrive at puppy pick up. Your pup’s day isn’t complete at Fido until our Trainers have delivered your pup’s report card, provided a verbal debriefing, answered questions, explained effective training strategies and provided a demonstration of training techniques utilized.

PAL runs Mondays, Wednesdays,  and Fridays in two sessions, with the option to sign up for a full day (by signing up for both sessions that day):

  • Morning session is 7:00-11:00 AM
  • Afternoon session is 1:00-4:00 PM

Pickup for the AM session is from 11 to 12, and pickup for the PM session is from 4-5. Picking up later than Noon for the AM session or 5pm for the PM session will incur a $20 late pickup fee.

PAL is for puppies 2 ½ to 6 months old. All participants must be current on vaccinations, including a clean fecal exam within 30 days of enrollment.

PAL days can be purchased a la carte. We have a maximum of 12 puppies with 3 trainers and feel strongly about keeping this ratio, so if you don’t see a day you’d like available, that means we’re full.

​All PAL classes take place at: FIDO Personal Dog Training, 23440 Woodward Ave Ferndale, MI 48220

Sign up for PAL ends at 5pm the evening before the scheduled session to allow us to plan accurately for the puppies. Session space is limited so sign up today!
