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 Life Skills 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 6 dogs per day, we ensure you dog will get personalized attention to work on whatever challenges you might be having at home or out in the world.

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 18 months old that have aged out of puppy PAL and/or attended Life Skills class. If it has been more than two months since your dog last attended class or PAL, or you haven’t attended either and want to be considered for the program, contact info@fidodogtraining.com to set up a play style assessment. All participants must be current on vaccinations, flea, and heartworm preventative. We have individual days for sale, as well as packages. 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, so if you don’t see a day you’d like available, that means we’re full. If you’d like to sign up for a package, you get a 15% discount! You receive the package discount if you purchase 8 full days or a combination of 16 half days. If you’d like to purchase a package, email fido.lk3@gmail.com with the days you’d like to purchase for your package and Leslie will get you taken care of!

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