Rattlesnake Avoidance Training

Rattlesnake bites can kill

Train your dog to avoid these potentially deadly creatures and protect your family at the same time.

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona provides valuable and life-saving Rattlesnake Avoidance training classes throughout the spring and fall. Each Rattlesnake Avoidance training class gives dogs the necessary training to help prevent an expensive and potentially deadly snakebite.

Sign up now for this valuable and potentially life-saving class which will teach your dog to keep his nose out of a rattlesnake’s business.
