About The Team

Our intervention program pairs troubled youth with hard-to-adopt shelter dogs for bi-weekly workshops that aim to teach valuable character traits that will empower youth to lead highly influential and successful lives, and dogs an increased chance at getting adopted into fur'ever homes...

During these bi-weekly 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.

More Info

Every dollar (and goosebump) raised through Bark-A-Bout's #PlungeForPaws2020 Fundraiser will give your favorite pet rescue the ability to continue their mission to bring warmth and health to animals in need this winter!! Money raised will help pay for critical life-saving pet-care supplies and owner education. Without intervention, unfortunately many abandoned and chained outdoor pets will die a very slow and painful death this winter of hypothermia, dehydration and starvation.

Bark-A-Bout invites you to raise donations for pets in need! Each human registered plunger who raises $100 or more can #TakeThePlunge in Bark-A-Bout's indoor pool alongside other supporters of their favorite pet rescue, Sunday, December 13th, 2020! Whether you go knee-deep, waist high, take the full plunge, or stay dry, each dollar raised will help keep local pets warm and healthy this winter! 


HELP YOUR FAVORITE PET RESCUE TEAM WIN BARK-A-BOUT'S GRAND PRIZE DONATION!!! The pet rescue that raises the most money and plungers during the #PlungeForPaws2020 Fundraiser will receive all of Bark-A-Bout's collected donations, with an exciting minimum guaranteed prize donation of $1,000!
