The R2 Fish School Kit (http://www.r2fishschool.com) is the world's first complete pet fish training system. Using the positive reinforcement training techniques in the R2 Fish School kit you can easily teach your fish football, slalom, the limbo dance, basketball and much more.

Educators are catching on to the educational benefits of the kit and teachers across the country are using the kit as an in class science project. The Kearney School of Science, Connections and Technology in San Diego, CA and science teacher Joanne "JJ" Johnson have implemented the program. They have 10 tanks setup in her classroom and students are divided into small groups of 3 or 4.

"Team members experience a wonderful sense of pride and accomplishment when they demonstrate the skill of their 'fish stars' to an appreciative and often incredulous audience. Students have learned that patience and consistency are essential to effectively train animals", says Johnson. "Generating excitement in the learning process is at the heart of teaching. Fish School is tailor-made for this".

The R2 Fish School is a unique holiday gift and educational tool. The kit captures the imagination in the classroom and with fish trainers of all ages. The R2 Fish School teaches the same techniques that are fundamental to training other marine mammals. Each kit includes an illustrated manual, a 45 minute instructional DVD and over 20 training parts.

"When people see trained fish in action, shooting hoops or playing fetch their perception and understanding of animal intelligence often changes", says Russ Ronat, President of R2 Solutions, "The educational benefits of the kit are amazing".

The R2 Fish School kit has received rave product reviews and was recently awarded as "Best In Show" in the aquarium category of the 2009 Global Pet Expo New Product Showcase. Global Pet Expo is the pet industry's largest annual trade show.
