Jan 21: Dog Safety Program
Join Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy to learn safety tips for young children aimed at prevention of dog bites. Thousands of children are bitten each year by dogs, and most of these bites are preventable, just by learning some basic “dog language” and understanding how to approach a new furry friend. Join some special trained canine guests from Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy to learn why a dog might be saying to you, and how you can safely approach new dogs. While you’re at it, you’ll learn just how smart man’s best friend can be by watching them perform tricks for you.
Sessions occur at approximately 10, 10:30 and 11 a.m.
