Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for Dogs @ Paws Park
May 30

Hello everyone,
For those who enjoy the outdoors with your dogs or those living in 
homes backed up to hillsides and in rural areas, rattlesnakes can be 
a great risk to your dog requiring emergency medical care 
and the cost involved can rise quickly.
Rattlesnake Avoidance Training will teach your dog to avoid the sight, 
sound and the smell of a rattlesnake once they become aware of one 
to give you peace of mind and potentially save both you and your dogs' life by alerting you to the presence of a rattlesnake.
