Mic Foster and his wife Stephanie wanted to bring a safe and fun environment for dogs to downtown Cincinnati, so they launched the Pet Athletic Club (PAC) in 2006.

Since then, the facility, which primarily started out as a K9 Training Facility, has expanded to offer a full-service doggie daycare and boarding services. “The PAC has celebrated over 10 years of providing a safe and fun environment for downtown residents and commuters to bring their dog for a day of games and entertainment, or to relax when their owners go out of town,” explains Foster.

Open seven days a week, 365 days a year, the Pet Athletic Club provides nearly every service a dog requires. “From daycare and boarding to raining and bath and nail trims, the PAC is a one-stop shop for all your canine’s needs,” he says.

The Fosters also run the Pet Athletic Club with the assistance of Head Trainer Scott Nordgren as well as General Manager Adam Teutsch. Together they have grown the Pet Athletic Club into the city’s leading Training Facility as well as the city’s safest doggie daycare.

In addition to the daycare, boarding, and training services offered, the Pet Athletic Club is also home to Demanet Online, which Foster says “tailors custom-made K9 Protection Training Bite Suits and supplies that are key for police, sheriff, military, private clubs, and government agencies around North America.”

The Pet Athletic Club has been best known for its unique training style, which Foster says covers everything from beginning on-leash obedience to advanced off-leash protection training.

“In the 10 years PAC has been in service, we have seen every size and breed of dog come through our doors,” he says.

Having the experience with every dog imaginable, the team at the Pet Athletic Club has been able to expand, customize, and tailor their services.

The Pet Athletic Club also provides a Daycare “PACtivity” Program that really helps to set it apart from other facilities in the region.

“By providing the smallest group sizes in the city, with an average of only 10-15 dogs, clients can rest assured that their dog is receiving more one-on-one attention from the handlers, and has a lot more personal space to run around and play,” says Foster.

There’s also a mix of games and obedience exercises that helps the Pet Athletic Club to send dogs home that are tired from the day’s activities and also a little more well-behaved.

Foster says PACtivity is offered Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Because of the extensive growth and renovation that’s been experienced in downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine, Foster says that the Pet Athletic Club is partnering with many new condo and apartment complexes to help tailor services to owner’s specific requests for their dogs.

The Pet Athletic Club is located in downtown Cincinnati, at 818 Reedy Street. Foster says it’s located one block south of the Greyhound Bus Station and Jack Casino, making it easily accessible from Interstate 71.
