R.I.S.D. prides itself on its professional schools. Tremendous job opportunities await small dogs interested in the healing professions, committed to keeping everyone healthy. A key part of this education involves paws-on training with live patients supervised by leading doctors in the field.
Water Polo at R.I.S.D.
The water polo team is a proud tradition at R.I.S.D. We are renowned for our tenacity and lung capacity – cubic centimeter for cubic centimeter the best in the west.
Model United Nations
R.I.S.D is proud to offer a Model U. N. program that brings together small dogs from around the globe to discuss the pressing issues of the day. The first lesson of leadership is to acknowledge different points of view. R.I.S.D was founded by Europeans who settled in Nevada, and all of our students are citizens of the world.
R.I.S.D. Pack Basketball
The R.I.S.D. pack stresses good fundamentals in passing and hitting those 3 pointers. It’s a challenge, however, when your team’s average height is two and a half feet less than the league average. Still, stellar performances by Sophmore Reina Lohle (pictured) with her amazing hang time allowed the pack to eek out a victory over Shellville’s fighting sheep.
R.I.S.D. Shakespeare Troup
Theater is an integral part of a full liberal arts education. The R.I.S.D. Shakespeare Troup prides itself on putting on world class productions every year. Here, Senior Laika Neumann delivers a brilliant performance as the fretful and paranoid Lady MacBeth.
R.I.S.D. Fine Arts
The R.I.S.D. school of Fine Arts adheres to the Fhundstücke movement, championed by artist Mariella Schulz from the Franco-German border region. This movement is a uniquely canine slant on the funk-assemblage found object sculpture tradition. Another key influence of the Fine Arts faculty is Jack DeVore’s Elastic Symbolism school of sculpture in Oregon.
R.I.S.D. Ride Along Program
R.I.S.D. supports those who answer the call to serve. Do you have what it takes to join the elite K-9 ranks that keep Nevada safe? R.I.S.D. students have the added advantage of being able to go where German Shepherds can’t. The law enforcement profession offers great benefits including grass-fed beef rations.
R.I.S.D. Formal Ball
Every year the students put on the ritz for our annual R.I.S.D. Formal Ball. It’s a gala event with glamorous attendees sharing dancing, fashion, libation and kibble. Here’s Senior Laika Neumann showing off her ensemble designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Seniors Laika Neumann and Bella Hauser take some time out to whistle at boys and sunbathe on the campus green. Bella is wearing a cashmere jacket she designed herself at R.I.S.D. while Laika models a sporty choker by Swatch.
San Francisco Pacific Canine Academy
R.I.S.D Nevada is proud to partner with The San Francisco Pacific Canine Academy (SPCA). Our students can study Marine Biology, Forestry, and Viticulture & Enology beneath the glow of the majestic Golden Gate Bridge.
