Training dogs to avoid being

snake avoidance, snake aversion and snake busting all come to mind.
While these terms all mean the same thing, dog training procedures,
techniques and methods vary between those performing the snake
Southwest Snake Avoidance
Experts uses a unique approach to train your dog to avoid rattlesnakes,
and even to avoid the potential danger of Colorado River toads. These
toads (Bufo alvarius) are now commonly referred to
focus on what we call
"SSSS." Safety, sight, sound and smell. Of course, safety always comes
first, especially when venomous reptiles are involved.
No snakes used in our
avoidance classes are capable of biting a dog or person. All snakes are
"milked" of venom and their fangs are clipped before each class. For
additional safety, each snake is fitted with a muzzle, ensuring the
utmost in saftey for your dog and anyone in the training area.
As we know, dogs
instinctively react to sight, sound and smell, and can also be
conditioned or trained to react in a positive manner to such senses.
That is where we come in!
SNAKE TRAINING PAYS
OFF FOR BOSCO AND EMILY:
Thanks Roger, the snake training paid off. About 8:30 one
Saturday evening in September I let my two dogs, Bosco and Emily
outside to take care of business before they received their night-time
treat and went to kennels for the night.

had just gone out the door when they quickly turned and ran back
inside. I picked up the flashlight and went out to see a rattlesnake
had made its way inside our brick wall and was lying coiled next to one
of the bistro chairs. Wow, the dogs had heard the rattle of the snake,
smelled it, or both and knew exactly what to do.
checked out what the dogs had spotted first, I called the Green Valley
Fire Dept. who came to our house and retrieved the snake and took it
away. Knowing it was safe and the snake was gone I tried to get Bosco
and Emily to go back out but they would have no part of it. At least
not that night. Again, both Mary and I would like to thank you for the
fine training you provide. It really paid off for our two dogs. Mike
