Puppy Training Classes in Metro Detroit and Ferndale

Teen PAL Academy

FIDO’s Teen Play and Learn (PAL) Academy

For puppies that were part of our PAL program and/or have taken our Canine Middle School class, here is your opportunity to build on that foundation! Take your adolescent dogs training and skills beyond classes with our Teen Play and Learn (PAL) Academy program! The more we socialize, train and condition dogs during this sensitive adolescent period, the better off they will be as adults.

Your dog will spend his Teen PAL time supervised by our trainers who will work on basic manners and conditioning and reward good behavior during group play! Regular potty breaks, nap times, and supervised group play will make your teenage dog happy and socially savvy. With a maximum of 8 dogs per day with 4 trainers, we ensure you dog will get personalized attention to work on whatever challenges you might be having at home or out in the world.

If You are New to Teen PAL you MUST Call Fido for an evaluation first!

Teen PAL Q&A:

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

  • Practicing and enhancing basic cues
  • Confidence gaining and socialization skills
  • Handling and conditioning
  • Working through those tough teenager phases
  • Impulse control
  • Appropriate play

Teen PAL Academy runs Tuesdays and Thursdays in two sessions, with the option to sign up for a full day:

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

Teen PAL Academy is for dogs 6 to 12 months old that have aged out of puppy PAL and/ or attend a Puppy Class and pass an evaluation. If it has been more than two months since your dog last attended class or PAL you will need to register for one of our Evaluation days. On an Evaluation Day your pup will be introduced to different dogs, work on training, and participate just like a regular Teen PAL day. When you pick up your dog you’ll receive a full report on your dogs play style, how it went, and our recommendations on how often to bring your dog to Teen PAL to ensure his or her comfort.

All Teen PAL participants must be current on vaccinations, flea, and heart worm preventative.

Teen PAL days can be purchased a la carte. We have a maximum of 8 dogs with 4 trainers and feel strongly about keeping this ratio. This is why some dates simply aren’t available on our reservation calendar. This means the day is already full.

Sign up for Teen PAL Academy ends at 5:00 pm the evening before the scheduled session to allow us to plan accurately for the dogs. Session space is limited so sign up today!

If you are interested in signing up for a Teen PAL Evaluation please call or email FIDO:
