We offer snake avoidance training clinics for all breeds, all are welcome. We use a live, Western Diamondback rattlesnake that has been milked and defanged prior to each clinic. The snake is not contained in any way throughout the session. The clinics are set up in a desert setting and the snake is set out in the open, as natural a setting as possible. The owner is then instructed by us on how to approach the snake and we then work through the session until the dog has learned the desired behavior.
We typically hold our clinics in several locations. They are held in the cooler temps, spring and fall as we have learned over time that no one works well in the heat, us, the dogs or even the snake! A link to maps to each area are located within the image of "Buzz". I have inserted Google Map links that hopefully work as intended.
Contact us at email@example.com or, call us at 623-258-7193. Leave a message/text if no answer.
In case you have multiple dogs, we have kept our rates low with those out there like us in mind! We also discount for those additional dogs.
