Rattlesnake Avoidance Training For North County San Diego Community Dogs


Is Your Pup A Little Too Curious?

Do you love hitting the trails and enjoying nature with your dog, but worry about encountering dangerous wildlife? Or maybe you have a backyard that receives visitors that could harm your pup?

Your concerns are understandable: after all, potentially dangerous wildlife is found in many areas across California, and specifically here in North County San Diego, where we are home to several species of venomous rattlesnakes.

Without the use of shock or live snakes,

and using only progressive, Positive-Reinforcement methods, we train both you and your dog to avoid contact with rattlesnakes and other wildlife, so you can both enjoy the outdoors without worry!
