Here’s your chance to try out some specialty courses including Tricks, Disc Dog, Agility, Nose Work, Reactive Dog and Therapy Dog Training.

Choose from the following training classes for your dog:

Pet U - Dog Raising PawTricks 101:
Remember when your uncle showed you his dog’s amazing tricks at your family’s Christmas gatherings? Have you ever wondered how he taught his dog to do that? If so, this is the ideal course for you! This is an entry-level course, which will teach the basic fundamentals of trick training. Take this course, and make your dog the highlight of your next family gathering!

Disc Dog 101:
Fetch, boy! Anyone who has owned a dog has played fetch with either a frisbee or a ball. This course has been designed to take a classic game to the next level…you will learn the correct way to throw a disc, and some new tricks to make this game even more fun and exciting for you and your dog!

Agility 101:
Get your dog in top physical shape, while also training his or her brain. You’ll find PetU’s new agility course both demanding, and rewarding.

Nose Work 101:
Build your dog’s focus and awareness with PetU’s K9 Nose Work 101 course – inspired by working detection dogs. This course will work on your dog’s mental and physical awareness. Your dog will be tested using his or her favorite toy, or treat, and learn to use his or her senses to the best of their ability. Using fun and exciting methods, your pup will learn the true ways of the K9.

Reactive Dog 101:
This course will begin to identify, address, and solve any problems that may be occurring on leash. We will determine the root of your dog’s aggression when in a public setting – whether it be anxiety or nervousness – and find proactive solutions, making walking your dog a more enjoyable experience!

Therapy Dog Training:
Therapy Dog Test Prep and maintenance classes help you and your dog prepare for animal-assisted activity commonly known as pet therapy. These classes are designed to give you the necessary tools and skills required to be able to take your dog in to care facilities. Precise obedience performance isn’t required, however you must have control of your dog while visiting, including a reliable sit, down and stay. This course is designed with two phases – an obedience and socialization phase, and an onsite facility training phase.

All of these fun and exciting new courses will be available starting January 4th at PetU Racine. We also continue to offer our Puppy S.T.A.R and Associates courses. Our next class session beginning on January 7th.
