Empathy. Hope. Perseverance.

Every week Teacher’s Pet strives to teach at-risk youth each of these invaluable character traits—traits that will empower them to lead highly influential and successful lives.

To achieve these goals, the intervention program pairs troubled youth with hard-to-adopt shelter dogs for multi-week workshops.

During these workshops, youth will:

  • Participate in positive, reward-based dog training

  • Help modify dogs’ behavior

  • Increase dogs’ chances of becoming adopted

  • Ensure dogs can remain in their homes permanently

  • Improve their impulse control and patience

  • Meet twice a week (for two hours each time) at various schools and juvenile facilities throughout Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties

By providing youth and dogs a safe, therapeutic environment time after time, Teacher’s Pet helps them learn, grow and create fruitful futures together....

CBS Detroit recently featured Teacher's Pet on their "Eye on Detroit" segment at the Macomb County Juvenile Justice Center. Click here to be redirected to the video link.
