Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for Dogs - San Luis Obispo
September 27

Did you know ...?

EVERY season is rattlesnake season in So. California 

As a matter of fact their daytime activity actually increases in Fall and Spring vs Summer.

Why? Because they like cooler, or milder, temperatures just like some people do. So when the temperature is cooler in fall and spring, rattlers are more active during the day.

"Anytime the temperature gets above about 80 degrees, the rattlesnake will generally retreat from that and try to hide," said Terry Phillips, curator of reptiles at Reptile Garden.

"So in the spring and fall, they're active right now during the daytime. In the hot summer months, they're usually active in the evening, overnight, and early in the morning."

So, if you have not had your dog trained yet, it's not too late!

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.

__________________________________________________________________________________________ 

Just wanted you to know my dog Amber went to Rattlesnake school during the summer in Riverside.  She passed that class and saved my husband two different times from Rattlesnakes where we live. I am so glad Amber took your class and she will go to the refresher class also.


Thank you, Robert and Ann A. _________________________________________________________________________________________________

In the past rattlesnake avoidance training has gained a bad reputation for being inhumane and traumatizing to dogs (and their owners alike!).  Traditionally this training involved using shock collars exclusively.  

Gina Gables’ does things differently!...

For old dogs, young pups and the very sensitive dogs or owners, there are options such as spray collars (canned air) or vibrating collars (similar to your cell phone) or electric (shock) collars.  Manufacturers of electric shock collars suggest their products generally should not be used on puppies under 6 months of age, depending on the breed and the individual or dogs with certain health problems.  Dogs can learn from a very young age and having these alternatives enables training puppies not to play with rattlesnakes.

Birdies, Barbecue and Books
September 28

Birdies, Barbecue and Books, is a golf benefit for the Buellton and Solvang Libraries. It will take place at the Zaca Creek Golf Course in Buellton, Sunday, September 28.  Tee times will be 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Course Manager, Mike Brown, has graciously donated the course.

 

“Come out and enjoy the beautiful setting, great Barbecue and prizes.  People, young and old will be able to complete the 9 hole course with ease, and no golfing expertise is necessary.  This is a “best ball” tournament, so a team’s furthest hit ball becomes the starting point for the next shot,” said Leslie Zomalt, an event organizer.

 

Ticket prices are $50 per golfer.  “Or,” said Carolyn Lawrence, member of the event committee, “you can become a Tee Sponsor with your name on a colored sign for $100.  This is a chance for a business, individual or book group to support the libraries in the Valley.”

 

Buellton Medical Center has generously become a major sponsor.

 

Business Team sponsorships are available for $250.  This includes the entry of 4 players with the team name listed on the program. All sponsorships are tax deductible.

 

Proceeds of the event will be shared by both organizations.  They will help fund the many enrichment programs these libraries provide Valley residents including additional staffing for children and family programs, technology upgrades and other library materials.

 

Both libraries contribute significantly to the Valley. In 2013 Solvang Library had 85,927 visitors, 93 story times, 53 children’s programs and 17,965 computer sessions.  The Buellton Library had 66,336 visits, 64,281 checked out items and 12,747 computer sessions.  “The numbers certainly indicate the continuing value of libraries in our community” said Leslie Zomalt, event organizer.

 

Registration forms are available at the Solvang Library, Buellton Library, and Zaca Creek golf course.  For more information email friendsofbuelltonlibray@gmail.com.
