Rattlesnake Avoidance Training

One Deadly Bite

Monday, April 5th, 2021

How far would you go to keep your pet safe? If you are reading this blog, the answer is undoubtedly, “Whatever it takes.” That’s why HSSA offers Rattlesnake Avoidance Training. Although we might not always see them, in our part of the country rattlesnakes are all around us. Dogs can tell when a rattlesnake is near through smell, but that often makes them curious, drawing them closer to danger. They have to be taught that snakes are bad news.

By setting aside an hour to attend the Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s Rattlesnake Avoidance Training, you will help your dog learn how to use all of their senses to stay safe from rattlesnakes. Most importantly, you will learn how your best friend will react when a rattlesnake is near in a safe, controlled environment. Knowing how to spot cues from your canine when danger is near will keep you safe as well, and potentially save both of your lives! If your dog is at least 6 months of age with proof of vaccinations the time to register is NOW.

Training is conducted by the professionals from Animal Experts, Inc. and A-dobe Dog Training.
