VioletThe course includes instruction on hand signals, getting your dog to work for others, and an introduction to the games used in our therapy work to help improve/enhance verbal and motor skills.

Register early! The kids are waiting to meet you and your friendly dog!

This course is a requirement for membership in Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy.

FEE for 6 hours of instruction:
$100 for one handler
$150 for two handlers

More than 90% of Rainbow programs are conducted during weekday hours. The majority of these programs accommodate the special needs of children. Please note: there is additional training required (no additional fees) to work in a Rainbow hospital program.

Flyball Classes

Flyball is a four dog relay race between competing teams. One dog from each team, racing side by side, must go over four jumps to the start/finish line where the next dog eagerly waits.

This exciting sport is open to any breed of dog 9 months or older. Most dogs can learn Flyball because it combines activities they love to do: chase, jump, catch, and retrieve.

Classes are held at:
Rainbow AAT
6042 W. Oakton
Morton Grove, IL 60053
2nd & 4th Wednesdays 7:00 p.m.
