Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for dogs

Warmer weather means camping and hiking with your furry friend. But every year thousands of dogs are bite by snakes.

Snake avoidance training is important for any working dog handler deploying in venomous snake country. It is important to use people who know how to do this properly. The correct preparation of a live snake coupled with proper k9 correction timing upon investigation is crucial.
