Rattlesnake Aversion Training

September 17, 2022 

SnakeOut has been helping the public on rattlesnake education, assisting in removals
and dog classes since 2017. Since 2017 we have done hundreds of snake removals in
the Northern California area and taught nearly 100+ dogs that rattlesnakes are no fun.
Snake aversion training is a useful measure at teaching dogs to avoid rattlesnakes. The
goal is that if your dog(s) sees a rattlesnake, it will attempt to avoid the snake and stay
back. We use snakes with the mouth taped shut. This prevents the snake from biting
and keeps the snake safe and able to breathe. We will have a snake out in the open
and walk the dog up and employ the collar to educate the dog on the danger. We use
e-collars with a shock or vibration setting. The dogs will walk up and learn through
negative reinforcement that they should not be near the snake and stay away.

Farm Dog

October 15 & 16th, 2022

Your dog responds well to commands at home and in public, but how would he respond in a farm environment? There’s an easy way to find out: Sign him up for a Farm Dog Certified test.

Open to all breeds of dogs, this test involves your dog performing a series of 12 exercises that are typical for a farm environment such as being in close proximity to livestock (who are always penned to avoid any altercations); jumping and staying on hay/straw bales; walking on unusual terrain; and jumping over logs. There is no herding involved. Instead, the goal is to assess his aptitude as a working farm dog by exhibiting self-control, confidence and trust with you or his handler.
